Happy Anniversary, Dancing Lights Press!

Happy Anniversary, Dancing Lights Press!

It was five years ago today that we released the first edition of Building Characters. Since then we’ve released hundreds of titles and dozens of bestsellers. I’ve managed to eke out a modest living doing this, while managing to maintain my oddball vision and indulge in fits of creative expression.

I’ve accomplished a lot, but I’m just getting started. There are big announcements coming up about the DoubleZero System, the Hippogryph System, and the Pastel System. If things go according to plan, by our sixth anniversary Dancing Lights Press will be unstoppable! Subscribe to the Newsletter to get information about what’s coming next.

At the end of the day, though, this is all about you. I’ve done my best to create toolkits and systems that allow you to craft the characters, settings, and adventures you desire. The systems I’ve created, and continue to refine, allow for different styles of play and different tastes in storytelling. You’ve supported me through so failed experiments, production issues, and all of the problems a one-person startup business inevitably encounters. I can never thank you enough.

Happy Anniversary, Dancing Lights Press!

Dancing Lights Press is a lo-fi publishing studio founded and operated by Berin Kinsman. One of the earliest RPG bloggers, Berin has been playing tabletop roleplaying games since 1979 and writing for the industry since 1992. Since founding the company in 2016, he has published over 100 bestselling titles. You can find Dancing Lights Press online at DancingLightsPress.com, and on Twitter as @LightsPress.

We champion the lo-fi approach to publishing. Utility of content takes precedence over ostentatious production value. Text is clear and concise. Graphic elements exist only to enhance the text. Books are compact, sturdy, and portable. This aesthetic creates toolkits that are useful and affordable. The game isn’t the book; it’s the creativity and collaboration that happens around the tabletop.
