That was Wizards of the Coasts attempt at doing a Role Playing game.
They tried to incorporate Trading Cards into the game and it was a big $$$ loser for them.

Yeah, course it lead to Magic. I got the box set and complete box of SW cards for cheap..odd concept, but some of the art is cool.

...what's that???


Everway is a game that uses Tarot-style cards to facilitate gameplay.  The books are not entirely useless without the cards; a pseudo-Everway system can be fudged by using some other source of inspiration.  However, Everway is already different from a normal RPG, so you would be straying far afield.



As a collectible, it came in a huge box with lots of paper, as the auction indicates.  Original price was large for the time.



Google for it and read what the creator and others have to say . . .

Actually, Magic predated Everway; Everway was created with Magic money. It was WotC's Primal Order series (not a game per se, but an add on to many different games) that predated Magic. Everway was developed by Jonathan Tweet, the same guy who was a lead designer, along with Monte Cook, of 3E D&D (he was also a major figure in Ars Magic 3E and 4E, IIRC, and the WotC edition of Talislanta, which also followed Magic).

Everway was WotC's abortive effort to develop an in-house RPG (Talislanta, SLA Industries, and Ars Magica were bought from out of house, though re-designed in house). It was an interesting design, but ultimately doomed as it came out just as MMORPG-style themes began taking over gaming minds... too esoteric, not number-crunchy character-buildy enough. The whole RPG division was jettisoned after the failure of the game to catch, though how much of that was Everway and how much was a business decision to focus on TCGs I don't know. Then later, of course, WotC bought TSR...

Anyone recognize these?  Could they be Archive minis?

Never mind.  As dense as I am, I overlooked the huge "Grendadier" label in the TITLE.  Doh!

Cool - only for the hardcore collector though

GW character sheets

BTW - if anyone has a scan /copy/version of this sheet - I'd dearly love one for my own use - these were my joint favourite sheets back in the day! (I'd know the other sort if I saw one - a generic character sheet very similar to this  one)

I guess the seller is Ian Marsh himself. He was, in my eyes, a great editor and wrote the News column for The Adventurer magazine for some time. It would be fantastic interviewing him  :D  PS for you Americans: don't miss KODT issue 126 where my interview with Graeme Davis will be published  :wink: . If that goes well, I'll do many interviews more in the future!

The seller isn't Ian Marsh, although he did work at GW.

And here is a Call Cthulhu Mountains of Madness mega adventure plus most of the uncommon expedition pack (which he has forgotten to mention in the title). Currently $50 (less than half what the other one, currently up, is at).

Hanson 3271 has his back up again, $10 lower, but I am pretty sure he doesn't ship to the UK (he certainly never answers any of my polite emails).

Shame because I would love to get the Miskatonic University Antarctic Expedition Kit.  I have a fair amount of Cthulhu, but not that.  :cry:
