About

The Network provides two services to the New York underworld. First, it lets them live. Second, the Network does them favors in exchange for cash and allegiance. They are specialists in the impossible. (Delta Green)

Arc Dream Publishing is a small-press publisher of high-quality games (and whatever else strikes its managers’ fancy), founded by Pagan Publishing veteran Dennis Detwiller and editor Shane Ivey.

We produce the critically-acclaimed roleplaying games Delta Green, Puppetland, Monsters and Other Childish Things, Wild Talents: Roleplaying in a World Gone Mad, Better Angels, the classic World War II superhero game GODLIKE, and the infamous horror gaming magazine The Unspeakable Oath.

 

Creative Director: Dennis Detwiller

Dennis Detwiller is an award-winning writer and artist. He was art director for Pagan Publishing for ten years, and in 1994 he co-created Pagan Publishing’s acclaimed Delta Green with John Tynes and Adam Scott Glancy. He received the prestigious Origins Award for Best Game Supplement of 1996 for Delta Green, and again for 1999’s Delta Green: Countdown, and won multiple Ennie Awards for Delta Green: Targets of Opportunity. He also won Origins Awards for Magic: The Gathering — Homelands (Best Card Game Supplement, 1997) and The Hills Rise Wild (Best Board Game, 2000).

In 2001 he released the original role-playing game Godlike: Superhero Roleplaying in a World on Fire, 1936-1946. With its remarkable depth of history and characterization, and innovative game mechanics by Greg Stolze, Godlike immediately captured industry and fan attention and critical acclaim. A sequel of sorts, the RPG Wild Talents, appeared a few years later. Dennis is coauthor of 2016’s Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game.

Dennis’s work has also appeared in various Call of Cthulhu supplements, Call of Cthulhu d20, Magic: The Gathering, Polyhedron, The Unspeakable Oath, Hogshead Games: New Style Line, Castle Falkenstein, Fangoria, Shadowfist, Mythos and elsewhere.

As a videogame designer, Dennis helped conceive, script and develop Sierra Entertainment’s [Prototype], along with other titles for Radical Entertainment, Nickelodeon, Warner Brothers Games, Harebrained Schemes, and Monte Cook Games.
