Polarity owned Magnetic Press had set up a company, Magnetic Press Play, to get into tabletop games.
It's our first look at the MVD6 system, the Magnetic Variant of the D6 system that once powered titles like Star Wars and Ghostbusters.
In Carbon Grey, which is heavy with paranormal and dieselpunk, space/time is bent. It snaps under pressure. In the Carbon Grey RPG, this space/time complication will be represented by the Wild Die addition to D6MV, which causes Continuity Surges, Flux Effects and others.
Magnetic Press Play will use West End Games' D6 system for the games for a launch RPG based on Carbon Grey, following up with Call of Cthulhu and anime adaptations.
The S5S-powered Quick Start is already available as a Pay What You Want to download on DriveThruRPG.
We're not going to see Arnie as a classic T100 Terminator in this RPG.
There's also going to be a very limited special edition of the book that will only be printed once and which has an embossed cover.
