Leominster’s R.A. Salvatore Stiffed for $1.7 Million Schilling’s 38 Studios’ Bankruptcy

Friday, June 08, 2012

 

Leominster's favorite son, science-fiction writer R.A. Salvatore, is a creditor for more than $1.7 million in Curt Schilling's now bankrupt 38 Studios gaming company. Salvatore is best known for writing The DemonWars Saga - his Forgotten Realms novels.

Salvatore has sold more than 15 million copies of his books and 22 of his titles have been New York Times bestsellers.

On Thursday, Red Sox great Schilling's gaming company filed for bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Delaware. The trouble for the failed company does not stop there. GoLocal exclusively broke the news that federal law enforcement officials have begun an investigation tied to the companies' default on more than $75 million in loan guarantee funds provided by the state of Rhode Island.

Role in 38 Studios

A leader in 38 Studios, Salvatore was the Executive Creator of Worlds, and it was his creativity that was the basis of 38 Studios' games. According to the 38 Studios website, their first game was the creation of Salvatore.

Copernicus is the codename for an unparalleled MMOG entertainment experience set in a truly evolving fantasy world that is both warmly familiar and intriguingly unique. Creative giants R. A. Salvatore and Todd McFarlane, together with the design teams at Big Huge Games and 38 Studios, are crafting a story of epic conflict and heroic individual journeys in which the players’ actions will impact the fate of the world.

The Copernicus was released with mixed reviews and realized poor sales.

38 Studios' second game was in development when Schilling's company started to spiral into bankruptcy and has not been released. 38 Studios promoted the game and hyped Salvatore's role, Kingdoms of Amalur, a new universe imagined by R.A. Salvatore, brought to life by Todd McFarlane, and designed by Ken Rolston and his team at Big Huge Games. R.A. Salvatore is the creator of the immortal Drizzt Do’Urden.

Salvatore has two degrees from Fitchburg State.
