There doesn’t seem to be anything to link to about it yet, so I’ll hijack someone else’s coverage of the announcement. Short form, Margaret Weis Productions has announced that they got the Marvel license and that it will be a Cortex+ product. I should also add that I will be involved in the design process (as are a number of other really awesome folks).
One thing I want to note: MWP has announced what can only be interpreted as a very aggressive release schedule (16 products in 15 months) but that is not quite as crazy as it sounds. They’re following a particular model of releases which I think is very much in line with the material while also being novel in ways that I think will pay off very well.
Anyway, it’s not something I can really talk about much yet, but I’m excited about it, and optimistic. I have a great love of supers RPGs in all their various forms and shapes, and on some level I think you can argue that it’s the most essential of RPG genres – almost every game out there with powers and badassery and limited trips to the emergency room is some narrow slice of supers. Yet for all that, it’s a well that has a lot of potential to be tapped for more goodness. Or so I hope!
