Masters of the Universe is being revived in a big way right now. There are currently two separate animated shows in development at Netflix. One is titled Masters of the Universe: Revelation, which is coming from Kevin Smith. The series will continue the story of the original cartoon. The other series is titled He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and it will be more of a reimagining of the original series.
We’ve now learned that there’s an upcoming tabletop role playing game in development that will launch in 2021 and we have our first look at it to share with you today in the form of a trailer that you can watch below. It shows us what we can expect from the game.
The game allows players to create or customize their own characters to unleash epic campaigns set within the vast world of Eternia and its twin moons. Here are the details that have been shared for the game.
At last, the secrets of Castle Grayskull and the fate of the entire universe are at player’s command with a legendary roll of the bones. Created by the team behind D&D Beyond, Mattel reached a multi-year licensing agreement with Fandom to produce Legends of Grayskull — a tabletop roleplaying game where fans have the power to become Masters of the Universe. Players can customize or create their own characters to embark on epic adventures set within the vast world of Eternia and its twin moons. The entire experience contains a core roleplaying game (including a 250-page hardcover guidebook complete with pull-out maps), 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 Masters of the Universe players around the world — in person, online, or on a players digital device. The game is based on Cortex Prime, the latest iteration of the award-winning rules system from Fandom Tabletop’s Adam Bradford and Lead Designer Cam Banks.
Legends of Grayskull is coming in 2021 and it seems like something that will be a lot of fun for fans to dive into!
