Critical-Hits Studios and Greater Than Games Releasing Sentinels of the Multiverse RPG
I love companies that cram a lot of games into a small box, and that is exactly what Greater Than Games did back when they released Sentinels of the Multiverse, a cooperative superhero card game that featured a ton of of heroes and villains upon release and has seen even more in the (if my count is correct) six expansions that followed, as well as the Tactics spinoff. Now, Greater Than Games has teamed up with Critical-Hits Studios – specifically, Cam Banks, Dave Chalker, and Philippe-Antoine Ménard – to release a roleplaying game based on the world of the series. The game will run on a new system that “uses pools of varying sizes of dice combined with specific traits and abilities to make each character come alive at the table”. Banks, Chalker and Ménard all previously worked on the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game, which was a Cortex Plus-based system that I thought was rather smart. The Sentinels of the Multiverse RPG will make its first appearance at Gen Con this year, followed by a Kickstarter campaign in 2016. For more information, you can check out the full release.
Savage Worlds – The Sixth Gun Shoots Onto Kickstarter
As I mentioned last week, Pinnacle Entertainment Group has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its Savage Worlds supplement covering The Sixth Gun, a comic book from Oni Press, writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt. The supplement is completely compatible with Deadlands: Reloaded (PEG’s own Weird West game) . It does require a copy of the current iteration of Savage Worlds, but at $10 a copy (and yes, that is a print copy) the truth is that Savage Worlds is basically one of the best deals in the RPG industry anyway. You can also add a copy of the core book through the Kickstarter campaign, as well, if you do not already own it. Additionally, the Kickstarter campaign has options to add Sixth Gun miniatures, dice and Bennies to your order. A copy of the PDF runs $25, a softcover is $30 and the hardcover is $35 (each also include other items for the full list you can check out the Kickstarter page).
