Any Crossgen conversion?

Postby DrObvious » Tue Aug 05, 2003 7:54 am

Anyone out there doing any Crossgen conversions to MnM? I was thinking about doing some, but with a new job (much more time intensive), and doing all the best man stuff for my friend, I really haven't had time.

If anyone is up to the task, my wishlist would include:
Obregon Kaine-Negation (duh ((he's my avitar if you didn't know)) )
Sam Rey-Sigil
Obo-San-The Path
Aiko -also from The Path
Tug- Crux

just because I like those characters, personally.
I'm not mrobviousjosh or DocObvious, just some other guy. Obviously.

Fast Forward Gets CrossGen Game License
For CCG and RPG Products


March 20, 2003
Fast Forward Entertainment of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, has acquired a license to produce collectible card and roleplaying games based on CrossGen's comic properties, with the first releases scheduled for August. The first CCG releases will be 61-card Starter Decks at an $11.99 MSRP and 11-card booster packs at a $3.29 MSRP. The booster packs will contain cards from a 120-card set, including chase and ultra-rare cards. The art for the cards will all be produced by CrossGen artists; some will be from comics that have already appeared, other art will be from comics that will appear in the future. All of the characters in the CrossGen universe can be used (which does not include characters from Code 6 titles). The CrossGen CCG will be designed by Fast Forward president Jim Ward, who designed the Dragon Ball Z game for Score.

The CrossGen CCG will be supported by an organized play program; Fast Forward plans to hire a staffer to run the program within the next few months. The Fast Forward Website will also be updated to allow the posting of player rankings.

Ten promo cards will be produced for each new CCG release. Five of the promo cards will be distributed to hobby retailers to use as free with purchase items. The other five will be used for magazine inserts and other promotional purposes. Support for the games will also include an aggressive convention program, including San Diego and the Wizard shows.

Three d20 RPG releases are planned for 2003. The CrossGen Campaign System Sourcebook, a 192-page full color hardcover, is scheduled for August, at $34.99. The CrossGen Gamemaster Screen and Adventure, which consists of the screen and a 30-page booklet, is scheduled for October at $14.99. And the CrossGen Mystic World Sourcebook, a 128-page book at $24.99, will be released in November.

Well, some converting will still be needed. Looking at the sample write-up they have for Simon Archer (from Ruse) on their forum, the system doesn't perfectly translate over to M&M. It's going to be much closer to D&D 3.5 then M&M (Hit points, character classes, etc.)

But the Crossgen RPG will certainly be a major resource for some of my games, especially since my wife wants to play a Sigil bearer as her superheroine. (Somewhere in the Crossgen Universe, there's a world with superheroes, and a super who got her powers from a Sigil. They just haven't show us it).

Oh joy. I'll probably never use the system, but I know I'm going to buy it anyway.
