Masters of the Universe Roleplaying Game

If you’ve ever wanted to adventure in Eternia alongside He-Man, She-Ra, and the Masters of the Universe, you’ll have your chance soon via a new RPG. Fandom Tabletop has announced that it is producing Legends of Greyskull: The Masters of the Universe Roleplaying Game which will arrive in 2021 in a 250-page hardcover book with pull-out maps and more. You can see a trailer for the new game, which will feature public playtesting ahead of release, below.

Licensed through Mattel, the game will use the Cortex Prime system created by Margaret Weis Productions. Fandom Tabletop acquired the system last year. The system is a modular multi-genre system that has been used in for a variety of games by MWP including the RPGs set in the Battlestar Galactica, Demon Hunters, Supernatural, Leverage, Smallville, and Firefly universes, as well as for 2012’s Marvel Heroic Roleplaying system.

The new RPG is described as follows:

“In the Legends of Grayskull tabletop roleplaying game, players can customize or create characters to overcome high-stakes challenges and find epic fun in Eternia, a world where magic meets technology. The experience brings together the core roleplaying game, a digital companion and toolset, a community content creation and sharing platform, and an organized play program that gives fans the opportunity to participate in a connected, living story with other players around the world.”
