Reading through just one comment here, I see a poster who is making a massive assumption right now.Just reading some of the negative comments here, I see people who are ignorant of the well-written Adventures in Middle-Earth and Esper Genesis, both successful at adapting the 5E core rules system. If this new product is done as well as those, it will be a great book.
While that’s true, having stats for all of the various Stargate baddies would make it easier... (Wraith, Ori, etc) and not just Gou’ald and Jaffa and Asgard.Thundershot, I'm not at liberty to delve into what all we're using or when we're setting the adventure and core, but I feel confident that you'll be able to make the minor adjustments necessary to go off book with ease. A lot of Stargate, at least from a gameplay mechanics view, is pretty consistent over the entire property.
WEG d6 was, originally, going to be the system for a Stargate-SG1 rpg before something happened to the license and it went to Alderac Entertainment (AEG). The author released online what he had of the manuscript to date. There were no characters write-ups, aliens, or weaponry. If recall correctly, the only references to the show were a letter "written" by O'Neil and a few uses of the terms Stargate and Go'ald.WEG d6 is ok if you stay in the sweet spot.
Same here. I was really disappointed that Dresden Files turned out to be Fate, I really wanted to play it but not with Fate. Unfortunately I had the same with Star Trek. I find 2d20 horrible, so I also did not touch Star Trek from Modiphius. What's even worse, Dune will probably be 2d20 as well.5e is a good base if you make the proper adjustments. M&M and Spycraft 2.0 are great examples of cool games that took d20 and did some excellent things. I own the entire Spycraft d20 line, both 1.0, and 2.0 and the original Stargate d20 RPG.
Savage Worlds is also a good option if you are going outside the 5e paradigm. I've heard good things also about Modiphius 2d20 system, but haven't played it. WEG d6 is ok if you stay in the sweet spot.
But no FATE, please. FATE is really a terrible system and its why despite being huge Dresden Files fans, none of the gamers in my extended circle (about 20 of us) will touch the Dresden Files RPG.
