Mage Wars Table Top RPG

It'd be awesome is all I'm saying. Yeah we're all playing mage classes but there's enough diversity to go around.

I think you can also find some threads here on the forums with suggested miniature style play. Dada and Padawan were the OP's.

I suppose if one wanted they could get some DnD Minis or Mage Knight pieces, remove the cards to the side of the board, and run the miniatures on the arena map.

Well one thing you can do is make your own campaign setting in Etheria. With the OP kits, there is a bit to go off of, and enough world lore on the main page to get you going.

I toyed around with a RPG that uses the mage wars cards and a vatican type spell system.

Using the new amazing pen and paper RPG systems that are out there- it would be VERY easy to make some Mage Wars based campaigns, but not only that, easy to implement systems for spells and mages.

Fate core and Savage worlds could support a mage wars RPG with very little work and big payoffs.

I'd probably use Fate over Savage Worlds with Mage Wars but yeah you could do that.

I agree.

I've had a P&PRPG on my mind for MW since it came out.

Tokata and I came up with some good ideas a while back.
