There’s a rumour there will be a sequel to the Dark Crystal. According to the gossip, Omnilab Media and The Jim Henson Company will produce a 3D movie called “Power of the Dark Crystal” with special effects and puppets. It’s been suggested that Michael and Peter Spierig will direct.
To be honest, only time will tell if we actually ever get a sequel – and then we’ll have to roll above 10 on 2d6 to ensure it’s any good.
However, what’s more certain is that Archaia Entertainment, who have the Dark Crystal comic book license, will bring us a Dark Crystal RPG. ICv2 interviewed Mark Smylie at Gen Con who talked about the game – expected in 2012.
“It will be fairly simple, all-ages appropriate, and available for younger players,”
Mouse Guard creator, Luke Crane is expected to be leading the project and that players will run with gelfling characters.
Here’s my question, though – if you had a Dark Crystal RPG; would you want it to be an all-ages type of game or would you be tempted to make it slightly darker than that suggests?
