GameLords, Ltd began as a fantasy role-playing publisher with its Thieves Guild game system. In 1982, the company expanded to science-fiction and acquired a license to produce Traveller titles. Between 1982 and 1984, GameLords published impressive titles by a variety of authors. This is an overview of the titles.
In addition to short scenario books, GameLords introduced a clever pairing of Environment rules books with an associated adventure: (for example, The Mountain Environment and Ascent to Anekthor).
Founder Kerry Lloyd died in 1985 and the company ceased operations. Remaining inventory was purchased by Different Worlds and continued to be sold for several years. With the expiration of the license, the rights to the books reverted to GDW (and ultimately Far Future Enterprises).
