What this means for Savage Worlds fans is a possible Rocketmen pulp/scifi rpg, a new Battletech rpg, a Pirates rpg, to quote,
" including the Pirates and Rocketmen Constructible Strategy Games and the Mage Knight Collectable Miniatures Game.
The deal also allows GWG to support such genre-defining products as Pirates of the Spanish Main and MechWarrior with a series of scenario books, including new rules, games pieces, and fiction, bringing an additional level of fun and a new twist to some of WizKids’ best-loved properties."
Having played the Necessary Evil "worldbook" and enjoyed its take on how to represent superheroes with game mechanics, I wish that the deal also included Marvel. But that is not to be.
