I might re-buy Marvel Superheroes just out of nostalgia if I can find it cheap enough. But if I ever actually run a superheroes game, I already have and would use D6 Powers (and perhaps Godsend Agenda D6). I can only imagine ever running it if it is something my son really wants to play someday. Otherwise I'll stick with running SW D6.

I actually got the DC Universe RPG just to take a detailed look at the D6 Legends mechanics. The book was $4, so I didn't feel like I could really go wrong.

Good deal. I think the copy I found of that book was $6. I got it more out of being an old DC fan and wanting to have a complete WEG RPG collection than specifically wanting to learn more about the D6 Legend game system. I also have the Hercules & Xena box set which also used Legends.

I almost went the Xena/Hercules route given that my eldest daughter adores Xena (I mean, hey... she could do worse). But the rulebook was much more expensive at the time, and I'm not sure when we'd play.

Xena rpg brings a pretty high price most of the time on EBAY and the box set is hard to find there.

I have been trying to pick it up for about a year now.

What is the Tank Girl game like? Anyone know?

The Marvel box set runs pretty cheap most of the time, I got mine complete for super cheap. Many of the modules run about 4$ each a lot of the time.

Not sure what book you are talking about but I own Maqic & Mysticism: The Dark Continent. It covers Africa as a setting with chapters for Witchcraft, Shamamism, and Sorcery with new dis/advantages, magic rules, sample spells and adventure hooks. There is also an assortment of character templates near the end and a d6/masterbook conversion page.


Oh my gosh, I didn't know it was actually released. That is SOOOO on my lookout list.


Found it on Biblio.com: Indiana Jones Magic & Mysticism


For most games my first page to check for released items as well as some good tid bits of info and non release items at time is Waynes Books.

I've never even seen the Hercules or Xena shows. I would have preferred the DC box set and the Xena book, but I found the Xena box for a decent price and DC book for cheap, so that's where it fell for my WEG collection.

Not me. I decided that I wasn't going to track down every Masterbook game world for my WEG RPG collection. Masterbook is a horrible system. But I love Indiana Jones, so that was my one Masterbook game. And I don't know anything about Tank Girl anyway. Was it a comic book? Movie?

It's not so much that I want to track every masterbook game, just the ones I would like or would have flavor for my other games. Tank Girl was a fun movie not quite as fun as A Boy and his Dog but still.

We have a few seasons of Xena on dvd my daughter loves them.

WEG had quite a great selection of Licenses in thier day - Men in Black, Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones the list goes on. I would have to say that they are the company that I most collect even compared to TSR.

The real kick in the teeth was the magic and mystics D6 book it said would be released as a future supplement that would be released for Indiana Jones. I would LOVE to have seen that book.

After a fair bit of patience, I've findally got a copy of it on the way! I'm actually pretty excited to see what WEG had lined up for their spells!
