Valiant Entertainment announced today that they are partnering with Catalyst Game Labs to produce a full line of role playing games and tabletop games, starting with the Valiant Universe RPG, "Valiant’s first-ever role-playing game, designed for the Cue System (the Origins and ENnie awards-nominated system first published in Catalyst’s 1950s Rockets/Rayguns/Robots RPG, Cosmic Patrol)." The move is expected to double the sexual attractiveness of Valiant fans, as they will be able to combine the suave sophistication of reading superhero comics with the forbidden lust of sitting around a table pretending to be a dwarf.
"We've heard that, despite the proven advantage in attracting sexual partners lent by being in the possession of a large comic book collection, some of our fans were still having trouble hooking up," explained Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions, Ad Sales, and Getting It On, Russell A. Brown. "So we thought, what's sexier than comic books? Obviously, tabletop RPGs came instantly to mind."
According to the press release:
In the Valiant Universe RPG, players will immerse themselves in a dark and gritty world where every mission and every battle has deadly consequences. Whether playing X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Shadowman or even the all-powerful Toyo Harada—or any of dozens of characters—Valiant’s most fearless heroes will unite for the first time in a roleplaying game, allowing you to join their stories and create new ones! Whether you’re a longtime fan or brand new to the Valiant Universe, this is the only source you’ll need to bring Valiant’s leading characters to life in a fantastic superheroes setting!
"Hey everybody, we're all gonna get laid!" said comic fan Rodney Dangerfield when learning of the Valiant Universe RPG.
Keep an eye on the Catalyst Game Labs website for more information, as the game will be available later this year, with more products focusing on Valiant Universe properties due out in 2015.
