Not sure where this fits...

But the Malifaux RPG is coming to kickstarter soon!!

http://www.wyrd-games.net/showthread.ph ... ickstarter

I don't even role play anymore (haven't in... 12 odd years?)... but I am looking forward to seeing what they do with it, and may even start playing again (once Uni is over...)!

I don't know if that is good or bad.
Fantasy flight are awesome for their production values and theme. However, they are not well known for clear and concise rulebooks :roll:

I like the concept but I'm not sure it's going to have much depth to the universe. FFG have done a terrific job of fleshing out 40k with DH, RT, etc but its taken a few books to get to that point. I hope this more than a 1 book wonder.

Without clear "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys" this will be a very interesting game, am keen to see how it develops!
the possibilities for characters is intriguing, and could be very exciting. I just hope they stat everything and dont guide the play (ala RT, DH etc etc) just a, here's MaliRPG you go and make characters and make your own fun - i would hate to see it say Guild themed, or Ressy themed etc just standard rules and you define the setting, and which faction you are!

I recently heard Eric J from Wyrd say they were toning back the amount of fluff & background material in the game books due to an upcoming release of some sort (Storm of Shadows being the first such example of this). I guess this would explain why.

LOL Guild = badguys Neverborn/Gremlins = Good guys everyone else is an invading inconvenience :P

Though my guess would be PCs would be effectivly civillians caught in the middle and i guess chose your affiliates.. tbh at this stage who knows.

I would prefer if Wyrd concentrated on resculpting some of the Book 1 releases that are pants!! and stop creating new fledging merchandise

Which ones were pants? only mk1 Pandora springs to mind
Also I reckon with the change to digital sculpting and plastics it could be a possability. or forward the fluff killing more B1 masters off

MK1 Pandora??? Imho she was a good model, now captain high pants is one and the only other I can think of is the mozzy, it is a boring mini

I prefer most of the mk1 masters compared to the mk2 ones. Both versions of Pandora are decent though.

I will make a list :)

Most are just in terrible 'Gary Morley' 2D poses. Teddy is the best example of a 2D sculpt

I dare say with it being a game by Wyrd that it will use a card mechanic.

I am looking forward to this for sure
