This is kind of odd and good news alike.

Wasn't there already a Firefly RPG available? Let me see ...

Yeah, right - by Margaret Weiss Productions from 2005 using the standard Cortex system ... Therefore the new version will be a conversion, right? According to the official press release the new game will be based on the "award winning Cortex system." Really? Cortex? Not Cortex Plus???


All the best!
Liam

Expect it to be incompatible with the Serenity RPG of those years ago. All current MWP releases are Cortex+ not cortex.

Development of the game is going to require working from a number of starting points. Serenity was a popular product - huge fan base, lots of stuff produced for it. This is not that game, but we hope to honor it while also putting out something that is very much an up to date and authentic RPG based on the TV series. We don't need to work around anything, beat around bushes, whatever - the series has always been the core of the property and it's what got the whole Browncoat fan community started.

Cheers,
Cam

Thanks for the heads up!

Hope they have support material on the lines of the QMX products - especially a good firefly deckplan.

Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail,
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Since my television viewing is pretty much the local news, along with the occasional baseball game or maybe football game, and I do not have cable (never could justify the cost to myself), that explains why I know nothing about it.

Ah, I see. Thank you. Didn't know that.

Yeah, am really looking forward to seeing this shiny new rpg-toy.

All the best!

timerover, I suggest you watch Serenity by renting it at Redbox (dirt cheap), and then, if you like what you saw (I would be surprised if you didn't), then buy the series on dvd. I was out of the country when Firefly aired, but saw Serenity at the onbase theater for free, and that was enough to make me go to the NEX and pick up the series.
