New Marvel RPG on Horizon

Marvel Enterprises will continue to ride their cresting wave of popularity with a new roleplaying game this May. The word on some industry mailing lists is that some of the “people who brought you Paranoia” will be involved. Whether that means Greg Costikyan, some other former West End Games designers, or something entirely different remains to be seen. Gaming Report has reported that the system will be diceless, which if true, might spell an early death for Marvel’s new game. Gamer sentiment towards diceless RPGs has been historically negative, even with the recent success of Nobilis. Guess we’ll see how the 128-page hardcover game’s received in May.
