Battlestar Galactica RPG Debuts at Gen Con Indy!
The Battlestar Galactica Role Playing Game from Margaret Weis Productions, Ltd. goes on-sale for the first time at the Gen Con Game Fair in Indianapolis, Indiana on Thursday, August 16, 2007. The product will be available in the US hobby and book trades in September. The game is based on the re-imagined television series that begins its fourth and final season on the SciFi Channel in January 2008.
The Battlestar Galactica RPG uses the Cortex System (the same game rules featured in the best-selling Serenity Role Playing Game) and emphasizes a fast pace, role playing, and character development. Players can join the action as the characters from the show, or create completely original characters independent of the core storyline explored in the television series. The book also reveals information about the universe, ships and space travel, Cylons, and storytelling styles in the BSG universe.
MWP is hosting two separate Battlestar Galactica game events at Gen Con this year that run all four days. The staff will be on-hand at booth 2417 to answer questions and autograph copies of the game. Also available is the Battlestar Galactica RPG Quickstart Guide, a preview product that contains a full adventure.
