Champions Of The Galaxy review: The End of the GWF

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of reviews based on Filsinger Games' popular Champions Of The Galaxy role-playing game. Readers should be aware that in order to play this Edition (campaign), you must first own the basic Champions Of The Galaxy set. You can order the game itself and check out other great accessories at www.gwfwrestling.com.

Game Edition: The End 2110

Synopsis

Here comes trouble. And, that's trouble with a capital "T", folks. The big cheese himself - President Cordanus - in his campaign to enlighten the masses, has outlawed all forms of professional wrestling effectively handing pink slips to the entire GWF (Galactic Wrestling Federation)! This stunning news sends a proverbial shock wave through the federation.

Some well-known faces hang up their tights for good. Others swallow their pride and join the rival CPC. Those who are left take some drastic action. Boarding a space ship, they rocket off to Dimension Y where the Prez's long arm of the law can't reach them. The remnants of the GWF settle on the planet of Centra so they can painstakingly rebuild the GWF from scratch. To watch over the GWF, Centra's chief military officer and spokesmen - Corporal Aegis - joins the mat mayhem side by side with several of his colleagues. The GWF is no more. The Galactic Wrestling Federation Of Centra (GWFC) is born. GWF's own version of Who Shot J.R.?, also begins here.

Summary

Forget everything you knew about the GWF. In an effort to keep things fresh, those zany guys at Filsinger Games have turned the game and its universe upside down in this radical Edition. For first-timers though, you've gotta a lot of catching up to do and a lot of material to digest. The End 2110 is not meant as a stand alone product so some of the characters mentioned in this Edition are originally from previous editions and aren't included here.
