FASA

FASA was a gaming company created in the early 1980s. Their first major foray into the field was as a Traveller licensee, specializing in the work of the Keith Brothers[?]. From there they moved into the first licensed Star Trek role-playing game, before producing several successful original games. These included:

FASA closed down in the spring of 2001. The BattleTech and Shadowrun properties were sold off to Wizkids[?], and FanPro LLC[?] publishes them in English. The Earthdawn license was held by FASA until 2002, when it was also sold to Wizkids[?] - Living Room Games publishes Earthdawn now. Crimson Skies[?] was always owned by Microsoft Inc[?] and used under license by FASA, so naturally the rights stayed with Microsoft Inc[?]. Rights to the miniatures game Vor the Maelstrom reverted to the designer Mike "Skuzzy" Neilson, but it has not been republished in any form.
