MWP To Develop All-New Series of Pick-Up-And-Play Games set in the ‘Verse.
WILLIAMS BAY, WI, February 22, 2013 – Margaret Weis Productions is thrilled to announce a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to publish tabletop role-playing products based on Joss Whedon's fan-favorite television series, Firefly.

The adventures of Captain Malcolm Reynolds and the crew of Serenity continue to attract new fans a decade after the television series first aired. Fresh from recent success, MWP's own crew of seasoned designers and creators of licensed role-playing games, stand ready to develop an all-new series of pick-up-and-play games and game supplements. Based on much-loved characters, stories, and locations, every Firefly RPG product will be designed to be accessible, authentic, and as innovative as fans have come to expect from MWP.
