Third Act Publishing was founded by Jim McClure and Jim Merritt in 2016. The initial goal of the company was a place that Jim & Jim could produce their own unique tabletop role playing games. As they grew in the world by RPGs so did Third Act Publishing. This growth resulted in bringing on more members of the team and publishing other designer's games.
Third Act Publishing has a strong connection to Roll20 as it founder Jim McClure is also the lead designer for Burn Bryte, the first every Roll20 exclusive game. Jim is now working to incorporate all of Third Act Publishing's library of games to be formatted for the Roll20 platform.
