A new RPG set in the worlds of 2000 AD…is it something to Dredd? Judge for yourself…

That’s right, the folks at EN Publishing are bringing you a new tabletop RPG set in the world of MegaCities, Robots, and Sweet Motorcycles with Judge Dredd and the Worlds of 2000 AD.

EN Publishing, under license with Rebellion, are developing a range of Tabletop Adventure Games and supplements based on the iconic characters and worlds found in the legendary British comic 2000 AD.

“2000 AD has forty years of rich history and storytelling and this worldwide license allows us to explore those characters and stories and bring them to the tabletop” Angus Abranson, Business Manager of EN Publishing said.

The first release will be Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Tabletop Adventure Game, a full colour hardcover book which contains the core ‘Worlds of 2000 AD’ rules as well as setting information enabling the players to not only play Judges, but also civilians and perps, in Mega City One.

“The rules system we’re using is our own WOIN (What’s Old Is New) engine that also powers our N.E.W. – The Science Fiction Roleplaying Game which spent some time as the #1 best seller on RPGNow” said system designer and EN Publishing Owner, Russ Morrissey. “The system is incredibly flexible and can cater seamlessly for the Celtic environs of Slaine to spacefaring hijinks of the Ace Trucking Co.”

Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD will be followed by a series of adventure sourcebooks giving players and Game Masters the opportunity to play through the story arcs that made Judge Dredd such an enduring character. In addition to the support material for the Judge Dredd campaign a series of ‘Campaign Guides’ are planned which will cover other 2000 AD settings.

    Didnt Warlord games get the license for Judge Dredd miniatures? Or is this something completely different?

    • Severius_Tolluck

      I think that is now coming to an end already.

        A boxed game with plastic minis for a few Judges vs a bunch of perps could be a lot of fun.

        • Xodis

          Sounds like a perfect “Not Necromunga” game lol

          There’s been several judge dredd skirmish games throughout the years.

          The last one I knew of was put out by Mongoose and had about as much exposure as their Star Trek and Babylon 5 games.

        is it? I thought that was one of their long running things after they got it from Mongoose?

        • Severius_Tolluck

          Dunno, Just warlord seemed to be iffy with it, and last year clearenced so much of it out and made the rules free. I am just speculating but…

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            I might ask on their Facebook.

    • euansmith

      This is an RPG, so probably has a different license.

  • Commissar Molotov

    Woo! Love me some Dredd!

  • Martin Cann

    TOO… MUCH… THRILL-POWER…..

    • euansmith

      Zarjaz!

  • Iconoc1ast

    Would be cool to see the ABC warriors

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      Slaine too, must be a very flexible system if it can deal with Slaine and Dredd.

    They shold make a Judge Dredd MMO. Things getting boring? Time for a Block War. And it already has an end game built right it the lore, something that most MMOs struggle with: once you top out on levels, it’s The Long Walk into the Cursed Earth. It’s a great IP for an MMO IMO.

    Love me some Dredd, lets get some more hype so we get a Dredd 2 movie!

    ok, so I think I answered my own question. Apparently Warlord DID pick up the license for Judge Dredd in Dec or Jan.

    “Warlord Games is to produce a new line of miniatures and games based on the legendary British comic book, 2000 AD.”.

    This was posted on the Warlord Website a few months back. So I guess thats going to be seperate from the RPG and whatever else this company is doing. And after rereading the article, I guess the line about “Tabletop Adventure Game” makes me think miniatures and not rpgs, as it is referring to in this article.
