Wyrd is bond
« on: March 04, 2004, 08:34:04 AM »
Ok I'll admit it, Im more Vanilla than Vanilla Ice and Im kind of intrigued by this game. Key 20 has some neat ideas about what gaming should be like.

Its an automated robot. Based on Science!

one of their "neat" ideas is that we actualy want to play a d20 version of American McGee's Oz.  Which, of course, we don't.

Currently, there is a toy line based on McGee's Oz universe and an upcoming book due from publisher Warner Books. An option for a trilogy of Oz-based movies is also held by legendary producer Jerry Bruckheimer. In addition, McGee revealed that he recently signed a deal with Key 20 Publishing to bring out a paper role-playing game based on Oz.

Key 20 is too small of a company to buy the rights for something then never do it.  They'd loose too much.

one thing that would help them is actualy explaning how there rule system works.  I'm gussing all of them use the "Three Sphere" system even though only 2 acualy mention anything of the sort.  But ya, I'm not going to buy a RPG if I don;t have some idea on how it plays.

RE: d20
None of our games use the d20 system. That specifically includes our version of American McGee's OZ.

RE: The Sphere Engine
No, not all our games use the Sphere Engine. Of the ones listed on the site, only Justifiers: OMEGA and Creation AD use it. The rest use systems designed specifically for the setting.

it means we got a hit from one of the editors of the game under discussion, Gemm

Of course, if he wanted to, he could always forward me (the RPG dept head) a copy of some of those games. I know Jeffe and I would be interested in checking them out and reviewing

If you're reading this, Mr. Blair, you can reach me at [email protected]. I'll be emailing you about contact info using your general email if you don't get hold of me first (assuming of course, you're interested in one of us giving an informed opinion of the book on our site, rather than just talking about covers and potentials for concepts).
