MWP, the publisher behind the Marvel RPG, Dragonlance, Leverage, Smallville and Supernatural RPGs have added another TV show license to their roster of games today – Firefly.
The first releases for the Firefly RPG may be out in just a few months, in print and digital, using MWP’s Cortex system. The deal was struck with Fox Consumer Products who find the TV series continues to be popular a decade after it first aired.
MWP President Margaret Weis said;
“This project is a dream come true for me. I have been such a long-time fan of Firefly!”
“I look forward to working with my crew to take us all back out into the Black!”
We’ll have to find out whether the game builds on the world crated by Joss Whedon and lets players create their own crews or whether it puts the characters of Serenity and Firefly at the centre of attention.
Update: Don’t MWP already have a Firefly RPG on Cortex? They have a Serenity RPG written by Weis and Jamie Chambers. I’ve asked MWP for a steer between the two games and details aren’t yet plentiful. Firefly and Serenity are different licenses and the Firefly RPG will concentrate on the TV series.
I expect updates will follow in a few months.
