Back again, for Round 3!
Margaret Weis Productions is releasing a new Marvel RPG using their custom Cortex Plus system. The game goes live on February 28, 2012. Here is the link to purchase.
They have chosen an “event-based” model. This means that they will release the basic game (called the Operations Manual), along with a mini-event based on Breakout (a storyline from the Avengers comic book). Following this, they will release supplemental books based upon other events. Interestingly, for each event, the consumer can choose to by the Premium edition (which includes the core rules along with the new event) or the Essential edition (which just has the event itself).
I have limited exposure to the Cortex Plus system, but I am totally psyched for this game. I will hopefully be posting more soon…
