     September 15, 2003 | CG RGP To Include 'War'
    From Bill Rosemann


    The War is coming...and now you can join the fight!

    CrossGen Entertainment and Fast Forward Entertainment, Inc. have expanded the CrossGen Role Playing Game to incorporate and reflect events that will soon rock the entire CrossGen Universe in the Spring 2004 event THE WAR. Subsequently, the anticipated release date for the CROSSGEN CAMPAIGN SYSTEM RULE BOOK has been adjusted to December of 2003.

    "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 Peterson. "The release of THE WAR and the CROSSGEN RPG will be a game player's dream: huge, mythic drama and warfare played across the whole of two universes."

    "We've been working very close with the staff at CrossGen to make sure that everything we do completely reflects their ever-changing worlds," stated Fast Forward VP of Sales & Marketing John Danovich. "And while most of the rule book was already written, we all realized that THE WAR was just too big and important not to incorporate into the initial launch."

    Published under the Open Gaming License due to the character creation rules that are necessary for playing in the CrossGen Universe, the highly-anticipated rule book features gorgeous full color interior art by the fantastic stable of CrossGen artists.

    "CrossGen has some of the best artists in the entire comics industry working on their titles, and we are extremely pleased to be able to bring their amazing creations to the gaming world," said James M. Ward, President of Fast Forward.

    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.

    Fast Forward Gets CrossGen Game License
    March 20, 2003

    For CCG and RPG Products

    Fast Forward Entertainment of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, has acquired a license to produce collectible card and roleplaying games based on CrossGen's comic properties, with the first releases scheduled for August. The first CCG releases will be 61-card Starter Decks at an $11.99 MSRP and 11-card booster packs at a $3.29 MSRP. The booster packs will contain cards from a 120-card set, including chase and ultra-rare cards. The art for the cards will all be produced by CrossGen artists; some will be from comics that have already appeared, other art will be from comics that will appear in the future. All of the characters in the CrossGen universe can be used (which does not include characters from Code 6 titles). The CrossGen CCG will be designed by Fast Forward president Jim Ward, who designed the Dragon Ball Z game for Score.

    The CrossGen CCG will be supported by an organized play program; Fast Forward plans to hire a staffer to run the program within the next few months. The Fast Forward Website will also be updated to allow the posting of player rankings.

    Ten promo cards will be produced for each new CCG release. Five of the promo cards will be distributed to hobby retailers to use as free with purchase items. The other five will be used for magazine inserts and other promotional purposes. Support for the games will also include an aggressive convention program, including San Diego and the Wizard shows.

    Three d20 RPG releases are planned for 2003. The CrossGen Campaign System Sourcebook, a 192-page full color hardcover, is scheduled for August, at $34.99. The CrossGen Gamemaster Screen and Adventure, which consists of the screen and a 30-page booklet, is scheduled for October at $14.99. And the CrossGen Mystic World Sourcebook, a 128-page book at $24.99, will be released in November.
