    MGM AND WYVERN GAMING TO LAUNCH STARGATE ROLEPLAYING GAME INSPIRED BY HIT TELEVISION SERIES Fans to Get Sneak Peek at Gen Con in August, with Release to Follow at Gen Con 2020 June 11, 2019 — “Permission to barge in, sir?” Now all Stargate aficionados have “permission to barge in” and take on the bad guys with the Stargate Roleplaying Game. MGM, a leading entertainment company focused on the production and global distribution of film and television content including major franchises such as Rocky, James Bond, Fargo, Vikings, The Handmaid’s Tale and Pink Panther, and game design company Wyvern Gaming, are collaborating on a new roleplaying game based on the popular Stargate SG-1™ TV series. Fans will be able to get a sneak peek at the game at Gen Con this August, with the launch expected to follow in 2020. MGM’s licensing agency, Brandgenuity, is managing the development and roll out of the Stargate licensing program and brokered the agreement between Wyvern Gaming and MGM. Brad Ellis, CEO at Wyvern Gaming, said, “We love the Stargate franchise, and we wanted to create a roleplaying game in which fans can become a member of the SGC. Just imagining progressing a character from level 1 to 20 while exploring the universe is a thrilling thought. We’re building on top of the D&D 5th edition Open Gaming License to make this an approachable game for roleplayers while adding the exploration and mechanics necessary for a modern science fiction setting.” Robert Marick, Executive Vice President Global Consumer Products and Experiences at MGM, said, “There’s a passionate fanbase for Stargate SG-1 who are eager to immerse themselves in experiences that extend the brand well beyond the TV screen. Collaborating with Wyvern Gaming on the Stargate Roleplaying Game enables us to give those who continue to watch and re-watch episodes of the hit TV show the opportunity to enjoy the series and its memorable characters in a whole new way.” The new Stargate Roleplaying Game lets players explore the galaxy and aid in the fight against the Goa’uld System Lords. The core rulebook contains all the information needed to create a character and join the Stargate Command (SGC). Players will choose from a set of playable races and classes as they learn the skills, feats, equipment, and technologies needed to make their character thrive as an SG team member. The book also covers how to be a Game Commander (GC). In the game, Stargate Missions are handed down from Stargate Command. Players may be asked to capture a point of interest, explore new worlds, retrieve important artifacts, rescue important VIPs, or assassinate/capture high-value targets. Stargate Missions will launch the Living Campaign that will allow the players’ characters to advance through the ranks of the SGC. Through an online system, players can track their character’s progression, earn unique items, and become a legend within the SGC.

    Hi all! My name is Brad and I'm the CEO of Wyvern Gaming. I wanted to first thank you for joining us on this mission of creating a new roleplaying game for Stargate. We love the franchise and want to make sure our game puts you in it. This adventure was the brainchild of our friend & partner Philip Loyer, who unfortunately is no longer with us. He would have been thrilled with the progress we have made, but incredibly nervous about the days to come. If he were still here we would joke about it and he would stress over it anyway. I miss my friend. This is for him. Thank you for helping us make a great game.

    Hey guys, I just wanted to put your mind at ease. We have a communication plan that we are sticking to. We are focusing a lot of our effort on game development at this time. Please understand that especially with a license property that there is an approval process that communications must go through. We're working with MGM very closely to ensure that what we produce is canon and makes sense for the franchise. This takes time. With that said, private playtesting has been going extremely well and there is a ton of excitement with those that are playing it. We'll be sending out new information soon and you'll see the frequency of communication increase as we get closer to February. Thanks Wyvern Gaming

    Hey guys, we very much appreciate your feedback and want you to know that it was heard. Upon careful consideration and consultation on how the US military handles armed coalition forces. We have decided that it totally makes sense that Tau'ri forces and personal would defiantly be included in a base of this type. Tau'ri will be a human race option. Thanks!

    The thing I will most interested in seeing is an Exploration generation ruleset. That was what I enjoyed the most when playing the previous SG RPG. There are quite a few systems with novel ways of generating exploration content. Roll a few charts to create the world entering (climate, culture encountered, etc). As well as some generic random encounter/mishap charts similar to those found in Forbidden Lands (my current fav exploration RPG).

    Does the development team plan on having any miniatures made for this game? is it going to be something we could perhaps kickstart? I know I for one would kickstart the heck out of some miniatures! i mean think about it! an aspiring "mission commander" gathers their friends around the table to try out the new Stargate RPG not only do they whip out enough books for everyone at the table but they also have plenty of minuatrues and maybe even some paper maps to make this inaugural session an immersive and memorable experience! ive seen some miniatures by other developers but they're difficult to find and generally in poor condition.

    Both missions were very well received! One of the questions on the survey asked if the game felt like Stargate, the unanimous response to this was YES! The players felt there character played well and loved the character sheets. Here is an image right before a session. The front of our Diplomat pregen character.

    I think screens present an effective tabletop mechanism for hiding notes while not creating too much of a barrier between players and DM if landscape. At the same time, I like having a screen in digital format because it makes for a convenient reference mechanism if the tabletop doesn't have the real estate space for another "thing." I mean, tables can quickly get cluttered with stuff and sometimes the GM can't claim the space.

    I feel like this could be a good topic for the writers to keep an eye on, there are a lot of systems out there, and they all play differently. What aspects of other systems do you feel would work well with the Stargate setting, and on the flip side, is there anything that you would say wouldn’t work that well? Star Trek Adventures One of the reasons that STA spoke to me as a potential system to Deakin for Stargate was the simplicity of its attributes and disciplines. Rather than having a great big skill list leading to very specialised characters, STA took the alternative approach of saying that these characters are all pretty highly trained, and as such, are pretty good at everything, whilst excelling in their specialties. As such, every dice roll is based off one of six attributes (Control, daring and so on) and one of six disciplines (Command, Conn etc) whilst having a relevant focus allowed a greater critical range for additional successes. I feel that Stargate could benefit from something of a hybrid between this style and a more traditional skill based system, as some areas would require more specialisation, for instance the sciences and archaeology, etc. Whilst in areas such as combat, you would expect the characters to all have at least been through boot camp, and therefore be able to aim and hit a target. Having a greater critical range due to focusing on a specific type of weapon. Could make sense however, someone who has practiced with assault rifles or SMGs for hundreds of hours is going to be far more accurate with those weapons, and better able to inflict more damage with them, whilst not being able to handle a sniper rifle or a staff weapon with anywhere near as much efficiency. From a sciences type of standpoint, a more traditional skill system may work better, to give areas of specialisation that characters know more about, and are therefore more likely to be able to interpret something successfully, rather than having a greater chance of understanding every single piece of this completely alien device in five seconds (crit). I hope that all makes sense, and apologies for the mass text wall, more to come! Modiphius’ 2D20 System Threat is a wonderful idea, and is handled particularly well in STA in my mind, specifically when it comes to escalation. Threat is a GM resource, that can be increased by environmental factors, situations, the result of PC actions, and most thematically for the setting, obtaining certain types of equipment and shooting to kill. In STA this manifests in reinforcing Starfleet’s ideals of trying to find the path of least destruction/violence. Whilst this isn’t as relevant to Stargate, the idea of escalation based on the players actions and equipment choices would feel applicable to me, and whilst this could be GMd pretty easily, having it in system could help with the feel of the setting. Once again, apologies for the giant wall of text!

    I played a Tok'ra, I enjoyed it. Made an Int/Wis character Int was the human part, wis the tokra. Rolled opposing ability checks at the start of the session to see who was in command at the start. Got to play two seperate character types. Had 2 defining factors, one for each persona, and when one of those was close, the corresponding persona would ask to be in command during that part.

    This is not a "hack" of D&D. It's a game designed entirely around the 5e SRD just like several others, so it can't just be ported over to other systems. It would also drastically increase the necessary work and playtesting, as no two systems are the same. And I have never heard of any (licensed) game being developed on multiple systems unless it was a separate iteration made by different designers. I'm not a huge fan of 5e either, and especially now I prefer it used Modiphius' 2d20 system (as used by Star Trek Adventures), but that's not possible as it's an in-house system without a public SRD.

    I believe SGP is more a location for the story of the game but the rules and what not could be used for a homebrew of the SGC. They stated in the interview that they will have a story recap of the show to the point the game takes place so its not ignoring anything. In fact that's why they made the SGP so they can make a new canon story. Finally the SGP is still run by the military its just not all Tau'ri.

    Problem with Ma'tok (staff weapon) is it's a dread-inspiring weapon because of its sheer firepower and showing that mechanically is hard. In the TV show, most people hit with it was basically instakilled and only plot armor would save main characters from dying when impacted by one. I have yet to see how Wyvern Gaming has managed the weapon, but my experience with it in AEG's Stargate SG-1 RPG left me under the impression it was an overwhelming weapon up to mid levels; a single shot wouldn't kill some characters but still leave them fatigued even at those levels. In AEG's game, the staff weapon required two proficiencies, melee for using it as a quarterstaff in hand-to-hand and rifle proficiency for using it as a ranged weapon. It also had a recoil rating of 12 (meaning characters with STR scores lower than that would get a -1 to hit unless they only fired it in single shots), an accuracy rating of -2 (meaning all attack rolls made with it received that penalty), had an error range of 1-2 (fumbling with it was easier) but also extended threat range, 18-20 (making easier to crit), a ranged damage of 6d6 (a bit scary; it also was energy damage, making antiballistic armor nearly useless), had 75' range increments, it was considered an armor piercing weapon (meaning it could ignore some damage reduction from armors) and, on top of the previous penalties, difficulty to handle it meant characters suffered a -2 penalty on initiative rolls at the beginning of combat. Finally, when using fluid initiative, some GMs considered it a tactical weapon, thus imposing a -2 initiative every round it was fired. So, in 5e, most of those features could be worked with some ease. But, as said, have to wait and see how devs modeled the staff weapon.

    I agree with some of your statements. And as the series progressed, the rebellions did become more of a focus but it never overshadowed the fight of the Tuari. The Tuari lead the fight. The game does not have to be all about the SGC, but it should be one of the main focuses with the military side as a big part. SGP seems to me as a great location sourcebook more than a main focus for the overall game. That being said, I am excited to see a Stargate game in print again.

    They can't be serious. that's literally what Stargate is. If you can't be an SG team tor Atlantis team, then its not a Stargate game, it a generic Sci-Fi. Hopefully this inst the way it goes

    According to the interview, all playable species will be alien and not Tau'ri. Why have you chosen this exactly? Because I find that kind of limiting, especially considering the Stargate franchise is about us Earthlings getting out there. Having variation by being able to play as different alien species is of course very good, but why remove the most important human race from the franchise? Granted, if you can play as a non-Earth human and if there are rules for Earth equipment like weapons and gadgets, then there shouldn't be a problem to create Tau'ri characters, but it still seems very odd for a Stargate game. That's almost like saying you can't play a human in Star Wars or as Starfleet in Star Trek.

    The thing is, Stargate is going to use the 5e system. If that's the case, then the only way to support those kinds of roles like Carter is to use multiclassing. If any of the class, skill, and ability mechanics change, then it's not 5e anymore, but a different system. Does that mean they have to stick to the 5e mechanics 100%, I don't know. Maybe not. But it was probably a conscious choice to use 5e. And I for one think they should. Otherwise why use it in the first place and not just create a new system, or just create a setting supplement for universal systems like FATE or Savage Worlds? I backed The Spy Game on Kickstarter, which also uses 5e, and they explicitly stated that they chose 5e and they will stick to it. They're not going to change the mechanics, because otherwise choosing 5e would be pointless and would require more work. But of course that's just my opinion

    Have you taken the time to consider for small companies having someone just to work on the hype train is taking the cost of at least one employee that could be making the game and diverting it, to post all the time. Whereas having the playtester post positive reviews that are genuine is probably better marketing, then the million of posts from the company that just feel like they are shouting look at us. I rather the company devote the resources needed to making the game and getting the rules and the final product worked out. I mean I rather have a book in the end that has good production quality, than good marketing pitch but get a product that has spelling mistakes, rules that are difficult to follow or understand.

    I'm not sure if people already are in Discord servers, or if they are at all interested, but I have a proposition: Some time ago I got together with a few people in a Discord server about creating a world collaboratively and create RPG adventures for us to play in that world. Not much has come from that (yet), but based on recent developments there may still be use for the server as a whole. So now I had the idea of reorganizing the server for games I'd like to play, and anyone interested in joining me. This includes Stargate, Star Trek, and perhaps D&D 5e (in addition to the collaborative world). So my question to everyone here, especially those that are new to RPGs or still just an early beginner, if you're interested in joining me, feel free to ask. Right now I'm only gauging interest from here and on GateWorld to try and get more Stargate (and perhaps Star Trek) fans together.

    Hello explodes, My name is Drew. I live in Ohio. I am a huge Stargate fan. When we first got cable while I was in highschool, it was the first show I watched and I was hooked. I still remember seeing my first episode. It was where SG-1 was trapped in Sokar's he'll planet. Since then I was hooked and watched it almost exclusively through highschool and college. I fell out of it in adulthood as responsibilities took over and life got rough. Now with this RPG coming out I am rewatching the series and learning to play tabletop games. I never played before due to my parents religious beliefs. I have dabbled with d&d for the past month. No one in my area to play with though. But I do look forward to trying this out with all of you and hopefully we can all have some fun.

    Tal ma'te, fellow explorers. I'll try to keep it short. Long time RPG player (both in consoles/PC and tabletop), I started into this hobby with MERP (Middle Earth Role Play), although the discovery of Cyberpunk 2020 sent me into the scifi "deviant" path of roleplaying. However, as those two games influenced me, I alterned both fantasy and scifi: D&D, Stormbringer, Shadowrun, Star Wars,... Stargate SG-1 (yes, AEG's roleplaying game based on d20 System). Okay, I must admit I spent most of my roleplaying time game mastering, but don't keep that in mind I am happy to help other Stargate fans to develop this project, be it as a tester or by providing suggestions. PS: I excuse myself if, some times, I might seem too assertive in my posts. I don't mean to be forceful but I can be quite eager when talking about topics I am interested in.

    Greetings fellow Tau’ri. So, the basics, I’m based in the UK, grew up on Stargate SG-1 (though I did have to fight for the chance to watch it!), long time role player, and GM. I’ve tried GMing D&D (not a fan, though I love playing it), but found sci-fi to be my GMing genre, Star Trek Adventures, Infinity RPG (both by Modiphius), Star Wars RPG (FFG). I was actually having thoughts about reskinning STA to Stargate a month or two back, around the time of the announcement. Must be something going around! either way, I’m looking forward to seeing how the system comes along and to see what adventures I can run in the future. If you guys need any play testers, sign me up!!!

    We have been very hard at work on the development of the Stargate RPG. The closed beta playtest has now been going on since October and the feedback has been phenomenal! There have been many iterations of the core rulebook put through its paces by hundreds of people. With that said, we have two very exciting announcements about the Stargate RPG! Public Beta Playtest is now available! We had an overwhelming response to our first round of private playtest, so much so we had to turn people away. Well in this round, no one is turned away. If you are interested in helping make us make a great Stargate game we would love to have your help. We want you, the fans, to help us on this journey to create the best possible Stargate game ever produced. The Public Beta Playtest process is about collaborating with you, the fans.

    this is very true to the core aesthetic of the series and hopefully the game. However I do know that its not just the tau'ri taking the fight to the goa'uld. As far as the trials and tribulations of the SGC on earth we have pretty much seen all there is to be seen from that particular perspective. where making the Humans of Earth an option and not the core focus hints that this particular incarnation of the game is most likely going to be centrally focused on the rebellions of the other Xenos against their oppressors! either way this game is going to be the bomb diggity.

    The thing is, is this meant to be a "Stargate: Phoenix" RPG, a spinoff of the series, or an actual "Stargate" RPG? That should clarify things. Because usually when a TTRPG is developed based on an IP, it is meant to allow players to play within that IP's universe, with little restrictions other than what can fit in the books. The core rulebook usually explains the rules and provides character and adventure creation rules for the core elements of the series. Star Trek Adventures allows you to create Starfleet characters and ships to create stories like the shows, with supplements adding rules for other species. Star Wars allows you to play as Jedi, Sith, smugglers, soldiers, bounty hunters, etc. Everything you're used to in the shows/movies. The original Stargate RPG did the same, providing a breakdown of the story as it existed back then, describing the SGC, Goa'uld Empire, etc. Then it provided rules for all major species, Tau'ri, Jaffa, Tok'ra, Asgard, etc. It didn't restrict the kind of stories you could tell. It also provided character sheets based on all major characters, with supplements adding more NPCs based on each season that existed at that point. Based on what I read about "Phoenix", it's not something I'd be interested in. I want to create SG/AR teams, as cliche as that sounds but I imagine a lot of fans would want that too. I already have my own story that I wanted to write fan-fiction for, which is centered around SG-7 (since that team was neither seen nor heard from again after the original team was killed by Nirrti in "Singularity"), and it's also set during season 6. As SG teams, and Stargate Command, are such important aspects of the Stargate universe, I would think that and other canon material would have a higher priority than non-canon material designed just for the RPG. For example, Star Trek Adventures has a Living Campaign with a series of episodic stories taking place party in the TOS era and mainly in 2171 (S3/4 of DS9), based around four pre-designed starships and is set in a region of space designed specifically for the game. Yet the rules are not restricted just to those stories, everyone can still create any other kind of Star Trek story, even including canon material like the Enterprise or DS9 and their crew, set in any of the main eras.

    I know the game made an appearance at GenCon, but has Wyvern thought about taking the game to some Stargate specific events to run demos? Seems like the perfect events to market directly to Stargate fans and let them get a taste of the game. Cal Mah 3.0 is next May in the UK. There's also Gateway next June and Gatecon next August in the States.

    Considering they are building the game upon D&D 5 SRD, I'd bet for a class system similar to that edition. Classes probably will be more focused on a modern setting, very much like those used in AEG's Stargate SG-1 (built upon D&D 3 SRD): soldiers, scientifists,...
