Any new information on the John Carter RPG

posted Feb 22, 2016 20:49:50 by MarvBreig
I've peeked at the CONAN RPG quickstart in the hopes of gaining some insight as to how the 2d20 system works. I can't decide if I like the rules I've seen so far, but there are enough cool mechanics (Doom, Momentum, etc) to keep me interested.

I know that a "simplified" version of 2d20 is supposed to be the engine that runs John Carter, but do we have any additional information about this?

Also, the original release date I had heard was Christmas and clearly this has come and gone. Do we have a revised timeline?

We really have no info to share at this time, although we should be starting a playtest soon. Chris, the big boss guy, is revisiting the production timeline to determine a new release date, but I wouldn't expect to hear much until the Conan Kickstarter is over.

Nice to know. I don't mind waiting, but I hate it when I think something has a certain product date and then it is waaaay late. I'm not sure where I got the "Christmas 2015" date, but knowing that it's still going into playtest gives me a better feel for the progress of the rules system.

Is there a way to sign up to playtest JOHN CARTER or is that closed?

Can't wait for this - out of all the properties out there I've been waiting most for Conan (which I've pledged mightily for on the ks) and John Carter. One of the best settings & characters in fiction ever. I think Modiphius are going to get a lot of cash out of me in the coming months....

Will there be separate miniatures for this game? Any way to see what the game will look like?

Yes, there will be a line if miniatures, there's no preview yet.

Do you have a date when there will be information available on progress of this project?
On Feb 24th you said the project timeline would be reviewed. Has that been done? And if so can you share that with us?

We have nothing to share at thus tome. Development is still in the early stages and we want to have information to share, we just dont.

You should at least update the main John Carter page with "dates to be announced"! :)

All we know for now is that the plan seems to be a full-color coffee-table sized book, landscape format?

I'll pass that on to the powers that be.full color normal rpg format, with a lovely miniatures game and a nice little board game on the side.
