"The cataclysmic events coming up in THE WAR
will have a dramatic impact on every part of the CrossGen Universe.
When the whole scope of THE WAR was outlined to me, it became obvious
that by doing some solid revisions and long term planning, we could let
players of the CROSSGEN RPG experience the action right along with the
characters in the comics," stated CrossGen's VP Special Projects Brandon

that THE WAR was just too big and important not to incorporate into the

CrossGen Entertainment is conquering new grounds with its company by
venturing into the world of collectible card games. The company is
already supposed to be one of the ones involved in the upcoming HeroClix
Indy Clix line, but that won't be the only way to play with the
characters in the CGU. Soon interested parties can have the worlds of
CrossGen at their fingertips in a new collectible card game from Fast
Forward. THE PULSE caught up with Fast Forward President Jim Ward to
find out some information about the recently announced game.
THE PULSE: Why should people check this game out?
WARD: Fans of the CrossGen comics will definitely want to see card
versions of their favorite characters and scenes. Card players who have
enjoyed James M. Ward card designs in the past (and there are a few of
those) should want to play the game because they've liked what I've done
before. Also card game players like new games because of the challenge
of learning a new game and collecting a new set of cards.

CrossGen RPG Rulebook Out In August
April 18, 2003
Illustrated by CrossGen Artists
Fast Forward Entertainment will release the first volume in its CrossGen role-playing game this August. The CrossGen Campaign System
is a 288-page hardcover with a color cover and interior illustrations
by some of CrossGen's top artists. The deluxe 8.5" x 11" volume will
retail for $34.95. Written by industry veterans Jim Ward and Sean
Everette, this compendium contains all the rules necessary for playing
the characters in the CrossGen Universe. The CrossGen Campaign System
makes use of the Open Gaming License (OGL), which means that the powers
and abilities of the CrossGen characters have been detailed for use
with the Third Edition of the world's most popular role-playing game.
With its plethora of fantasy, science fiction, and adventure titles
CrossGen is an ideal publisher for this sort of role-playing
exploitation since the CrossGen Universe really does provide a diversity
of themes and settings. Two more volumes will flesh out the CrossGen
RPG later this year. The CrossGen Gamemaster Screen and Adventure is due out in October, while the CrossGen Mystic World Sourcebook arrives in November.
Fast Forward is also creating a collectible card game based on the
universe of CrossGen comics, which will also make use of art created by
CrossGen's stable of comic artists.

of the promo cards will be distributed to hobby retailers to use as free
