begins on the cover for Dinocalypse
Hat Productions' first foray into fiction. Evil Hat's Fred
Hicks describes Dinocalypse Now as "a novel - possibly
the start of a trilogy if it is well-received - set in the Spirit
of the Century universe, as psychic dinosaurs from the distant
past try to take over the present and rule the future. Chuck Wendig
will be writing this one, with the pulp action and strange science
dials cranked to eleven. Expect to see the heroes from Race to Adventure! put in an appearance, including our game’s
classic love triangle, Jet, Sally, and Mack."
Gifted. Unique. Prized. These are the monks of the Shingai Order.
Dedicating their lives to creating harmony from chaos, the Shingai

purpose in his life and the lives of his people."
