About The Chronicles of Ny
The Chronicles of Ny is a multi-episodic fantasy role-playing game. It is a sprawling story that takes place in a frontier province of the Great Kingdom of Ny. The experience of the game will reveal to you a world full of tangible people, terrible villains, evil monsters, grand and petty nobles, spectacular and haunted locations, deep and storied histories, conflict, intrigue and mystery. You will become the hero or heroine who enters this world and combats the dark forces that would destroy it. You will lead those that follow you into danger and fight your way through any who would stop you from taking your place as part of the Legend of Ny.
In February of 2002 a small but dedicated group of Gamers founded a company based on the goal of creating the type of games that everyone thinks about as "wouldn't it be cool if...". Thus was born ClownKeep. This talented group of modelers, animators, artists, writers, designers, musicians and programmers have come together to create new and innovative games. The gaming industry is in the throes of change and looking to find new directions to go in. ClownKeep seeks to be a leader in this bold endeavor and is currently developing a new RPG that brings back the Role Playing but keeps it firmly rooted in a compelling, exciting storyline that will sweep up the player and put him, or her, into the story. This is just the first step for a new gaming company that intends to shape the gaming industry by giving Gamers what they have been looking for.
