    Default Stargate Tabletop RPG by Wyvern Gaming

    https://www.gateworld.net/news/2019/...etop-rpg-2020/

    The rulebook covers looks promising as a Nox and an Unas is walking through the gate as part of an SG team. Interesting.

    My only problem is that they are following the MALP without hesitation while Chevron 8 and 9 are glowing as well, but they can be hardly noticed.

    We will see what they will show us in August! I can only hope they won't waste the license which must have been cheap if a seemingly unknown and small company could pay for it. I have to admit that the MGM has caused a surprise, but at least it shows that they haven't given up on their brand. Yet.

    Wyvern Gaming will organize a kickstarter, just like American Mythology did for the comics.

    I'm not a tabletop RP gamer so this is basically wasted on me.
    Come back when it's a boardgame like the Firefly boardgame, or an actual first person shooter, or even a MMORPG online (no mobile games).

    Was the earlier version of the Stargate RPG ever a hit?

    I am guessing it wasn't a great success or they would have published more books. I have liked the Alderac SG RPG for the little fan fictions and small informations. I know that they were not part of the canon, but I could accept them as the Stargate : Infinity, like an AU version of our main timeline. The Goa'uld handbook was definately a good read as well for any Goa'uld fans. The S1 and S2 were interesting as they have extended the existing episodes with lots of background informations (name of the planets, name of the races). I have never tried the RPG part of it, so I can't judge their system.

    It will be interesting how they want to integrate SG-1 into this new RPG. I mean which era, which season. With ships? Without ships? Before the introduction of the Prometheus? Before the fall of the Goa'uld or even after it as well? Ori? Atlantis? Destiny?

    And almost every action happens near or at the Stargate since that is the only way to arrive and to leave a planet, so it must be challenging to write such adventure moduls for an adventurer team which won't be recurring.

    To be fair to the older RPG, they did publish a core book and 3 additional supplement books so it can't have been that big a failure.

    I'm not much of an RPGer myself, but I have interest in the format. I've mostly never played any because they're all fantasy related and I really don't like wizards and orcs and etc.

    There's an Alien one due out this year and that is right up my alley. So is this game. Even if I don't find people to play with - and in this day and age of Discord and Roll20 - the lore included in the core books is usually interesting enough. I've got the old Alderac ones just for their interpretation of the lore and their world.

    I'll be backing this one.

    Considering the "limited" (in the grand scheme of geekdom) audience for RPG -- even with Critical Role out there -- I don't think failure is ever true for these things.

    My D&D edition can be played solo. Nevertheless, I'm not a RP gamer and since my D&D box has only been opened once in all the time that I've had it -- several years now -- I'll wait until someone comes with a boardgame. I wouldn't mind a Monopoly Stargate edition, or something similar as the Firefly boardgame.

    It's a shame the Stargate TCG died a death. That was a super fun tabletop game that captured the spirit of the show IMHO.

    Never heard of it but here's a blog --> Stargate Trading Card Game blog <-- if you are like me and never heard of it before.

    Also amused that while it was never made, the promo cards for the Atlantis set had a Kate Heightmeyer card. Now I want that.

    Oh, it was super fun! I took part in the online beta but went physical when the game was actually published. I've got complete collections of the first 2 sets, but am missing the starter deck exclusive cards and some promos from the 3rd set. The singles are what I tend to get the actors to sign at conventions.

    The Heightmeyer card did actually get made as one of those promos for the 3rd set! Some of the promos tended to be previews of cards coming in the next set (while others were alternate art for ones from the current set). Heightmeyer is actually one of the ones I have from set 3!

    I only have the autograph cards and stuff.

    Still don't know what to do with them. Except the autograph cards obviously, those two are in a prominent place (Cadman & Heightmeyer).

    Will the new RPG accept the "stories" from the Alderac RPG? Or will they re-write everything? So what if they name the races or planets differently? Will they make other Goa'uld dynasties etc.?

    It could be interesting to see the Stargate : Infinity races here in the RPG as well, so we would have more variety in the Milky Way, while it could connect the whole SG franchise into a new system.

    But I would be happier to see an Atlantis book for the existing Alderac system. And later they could make a Wraith handbook... But I am just dreaming.

    Ask Wyvern online on twitter. I think they may answer your questions.

    I don't use Twitter. I am too old. Maybe I shoud join so I could reach Brad Wright.

    I was asking the question seriously. I know the RPG's lore is not part of the canon, but if they make a new RPG, doesn't it mean they will re-write even those informations? Like the uncanon of uncanon?

    A new RPG could be nice the merge the different segments of the SG franchise (like mentioning the events of books, computer games etc.), but I know it will never happen as the rights belongs to here and there. Even the races of the Stargate : Infinity could be introduced as NPCs.

    I like the cover art, but why would a Nox join the SGC? It is a bit weird, but not impossible in an RPG / fan fiction.

    If the information or stories are good, chances are they will retain it. Happens all the time in RPG's that swap publishers/developers. World of Darkness kept -a lot- when they changed hands from WW, as did SW when it went from West End, to WOTC, to Fantasy Flight.
    What you might find is some kind of time shift however.

    It's going to depend on the writer and what they're aiming to achieve with the story of this new one. If something done in the old one gets in the way of something they're aiming to do here, I imagine they'll just ignore that specific element from Alderac's.

    But I'm not fussed as long as the final result is interesting.

    I could always ask...

    But I do think it'll be a brand new game, and not build on the old RPG game.

    Alderac system is still like an AU, so the new RPG can be handled the same way. Average viewers will never read or play it, while the hard-core ones must be open-hearted enough to accept some new settings.

    Well... technically every RPG party will be AU as every GM will tell a different scenarios. Like an interactive fan fiction.
