‘Leverage’ Leaps from TNT to RPG
We here at ComicMix adore Leverage and have been eagerly awaiting tie-ins to the TNT dramatic series co-created by John Rogers. The first such product was announced this week with Margaret Weis Productions scheduled to release Leverage: The Role-Playing Game in June. The RPG will allow players to assume the roles of series regulars Nate, Elliot, Parker, Hardison, and Sophie while attempting to scheme and outwit their targets.
The Quickstart Job, a 16-page full color single scenario adventure, has been designed for June release to act as an introductory game.
The Leverage RPG will use the Cortex system as its foundation, and the 192-page, full color core rulebook will give players all the basics. The sourcebook Leverage: Grifters and Masterminds is due in September. The 112-page full color trade paperback will include expanded rules for staging heists, planning capers, and working cons.
The second season ended over the winter and will be released on DVD May 25 while the 15-episode third season is scheduled to begin running in June.
