FFG will be doing a StarCraft board game in the fall, which is great news to these ears, and a CMG based, oddly enough, on Mutant Chronicles. It seems difficult to believe that FFG could make a wrong move, although if any other company announced the latter I would probably scream “wrong move.” But who knows.
Green Ronin will in fact be developing, and GW publishing, a Warhammer 40K RPG based on WFRP rules. Interesting thing about this one is the format: three hardcovers, one each for beginning, intermediate, and advanced play. Hopefully they can pull that off; I can’t name a single mainstream RPG that I could really recommend as a starting point for new players.
