Today was my last day at Fantasy Flight Games. I want to thank FFG for ten great years and and wish my friends at the company all the best.

Moving forward, I'm going to do freelance game design. Wish me luck, everyone!

I don't know if the universe is ready for that level of awesome - but I'm willing to find out.

Thank you very much for everything you did to bring Cosmic Encounter and Arkham Horror back to such excellent awesomeness. I'm sad to realize you may not get to work on those games again....

Richard Lanius is not dead, thus there will be more expansions. Actually, I doubt even death itself could stop Richard from expanding games he likes (whether he designed them or not).

Good luck Kevin!

Are there any more games you designed that will come out from FFG in the coming months ?

There may very well be a couple of projects I finished up before I left that haven't been released yet. I can't really comment or speculate on any possible future products from FFG, however.

Still, I should clarify that Christian and I are still on good terms. There's no reason to think that I won't do some freelance work for FFG.

Kevin, Best wishes as you enter the free lance world of game design. I, for one, know that you will do fabulous work and look forward to the many thematic designs that you will create for a multitude of companies. I hope the future will offer the opportunity for us to work on a design project again at some point as I appreciate your talent and dedication to your craft, but more importantly I appreciate your friendship that certainly does not end with this career transition. You will certainly be missed at Fantasy Flight Games.

Once again,best wishes - Richard

So can you now approach AEG about the 7th Sea board game I've always hoped you would design?

Good luck, and looking forward to many great games!!

Still early, but it looks like I've got a collaboration with my good friend Eric Lang (Quarriors, Chaos in the Old World, most of FFG's CCGs/LCGs) set for later this year. I'm really looking forward to that!
