Sláine the role-playing game
« on: 12 January, 2022, 06:43:26 AM »
I've only just discovered that there was a Sláine RPG...I "think" I've found all the supplements etc. but please let me know if I've missed any...

https://boysadventurecomics.blogspot.com/2022/01/slaine-role-playing-game.html

...also I'm not enough of a Sláine artist to know who did the covers for all the supplements so if you can help me out with those credits too that's be awesome!

Thanks!

There's a Wiki page on this game with a list of the 10 books released and 4 that were never released. \it also says that there was a Runequest edition released in 2007

Was vaguely aware of the game but didn't realise there wasso much content released for it. Has there ever been that many suppliments for any of the various JD RPGs?

Pat Mills mentions this in 'Kiss My Axe'. Apparently the guy who put it together failed / chose not to credit Pat Mills anywhere. This does not go down well with Pat!

Art credits, in order from the top of your page:
Greg Staples
Paolo Parente (it's the cover of Prog 1091)
you've written Glenn Fabry but I think it's actually Dermot Power (doing his best Fabry impression!)
Jason Brashill (it's the cover to Prog 1024)
Dermot Power
I recognise this but can't remember what MG stands for - Mark something I think?
Paolo Parente again
Clint Langley (It's the cover of Prog 998)

Yeah, my first thought was Dermot, too. The face is much more Power than Fabry, IMO.

That would be a bit weird if true. He gets a credit in the Judge Dredd one Mongoose did.

"Slaine created by Pat Mills and Angela Kincaid

All Slaine Stories written by Pat Mills"

Page 3 of the hardback

At least Pat still has the chance to put right the Creator credit "error" for Accident Man right with the new film....

all of the source books and campaign books also have "Slaine created by Pat Mills and Angela Kincaid"

Though there was a singular relaunch for a version using Runequest in 2007, sso it might be that book he is referring to?

"All Slaine Stories written by Pat Mills"

And Dan Abnett (Wish You Were Here), Garth Ennis (Helter Skelter) and Alan McKenzie (The Indestructible Man).

Credit where credit's due, as I'm sure Pat would agree.

I think it's in later volumes of the RPG series where Pat's credit disappears. Or at least, that's what the man says.

Thanks for all your help previously people!

I've updated my guide to all things related to 'Sláine - the RPG' - although I'm still missing a couple of cover artists credits
