So, the world of Mega City 1 and the Cursed Earth? It even has gigantic shoulder pads already.

Discuss.

Absolutely. MC1 is so iconic, but MC2 and BritCitall need to be included. I think the 2d20 system would really lend itself to the genre. Plus, whoever owns the IP for Dredd now doesn't seem to be doing anything with it.

Desire, just pure desire for another license to pursue.

Desire and a firm belief that the 2d20 system would work great with Dredd.

oh, I ask because I use to be with the Mongoose Infantry and they did JudgeDredd under d20 and Traveller, still publish the Judge Dredd Miniatures Game. Sounded like they let the license laps.

It would be nice to think someone would pick up the Judge Dredd license, as it is a favourite setting of mine. However, the problems as I see it is that the most lucrative market for it is in the miniatures sales, which is already licensed to Warlord Games, and that the Dredd brand doesn't appear to be particularly well known or understood in the USA (even though it's supposedly set there, it's very much a British comic).

However, if Modiphius did pick up the license and make a new Judge Dredd game, I would buy it.

Warlord Games had the license as a joint venture with the actual license holder, Mongoose Publishing. The license has been allowed to laps.

Mongoose put out a nice line of JD RPG books first in d20 then in Traveller mechanic.

Si, my friends that were pulling for Modiphius to get thus lisence, bad news.or good news depending on how you look at it. EN publishing has released the following announcement:

This year, EN Publishing will be launching the official Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Tabletop Adventure Game! Starting with a full-colour hardcover core rulebook, the many worlds of 2000 AD will be explored - starting, of course, with the most famous character from the pages of the iconic comic book, Judge Dredd! Work is already underway on the game, which will be powered by the WOIN (What's OLD is NEW) rules engine. 2000 AD is Britain's longest running and most celebrated anthology comic, known for its cocktail of explosive sci-fi and fantasy and its mean streak of irony and black humour covering genres such as future war (Rogue Trooper; The A.B.C. Warriors), action/adventure (Judge Dredd; Strontium Dog), fantasy (Sláine; Nemesis the Warlock), steampunk (Stickleback; Brass Sun), horror (Fiends of the Eastern Front; Absalom), and humour (DR & Quinch; Zombo).
