Atlas Games has recently made the Over the Edge core rules available as OGL.

Are there any games using it? Even if not yet available (i.e. still under design/playtest) I would like to see what direction it is going, if any.

Also, if you have some already existing example of using OTE rules in a completely different background I'd be very interested in having a look.

(I am already aware of the Thundarr the Barbarian unofficial conversion to OTE, but I am looking for more)

I think you've started this one a little early. The Warp rules were only released 2 months ago, which isn't really long enough for people to put together a game or even a setting based on it, or even to start talking openly about the design/playtest stage. Heck, there's still a month left in the official adventure design contest, and adventures are much, much easier to put together than a whole game/setting. Try again in 6 months? –  Oblivious Sage Jul 2 '12 at 15:20
Not really a answer but I agree with ObliviousSage in that it will be some time before a setting is based on it is ready for market. My advice is to keep a eye on the company blog (blog.atlas-games.com) and RPG related news sites like pen-paper.net and rpgnews.com. Lastly you can semi-auto this by setting up a google alert for the item (then use it as a RSS feed for Google Reader) –  OrionDarkwood Jul 2 '12 at 18:21
@mxyzplk Right! What I meant to say was, "This is a valid question and game system: chill, and let RPG.SE help this person." –  SevenSidedDie Jul 3 '12 at 2:16
Weird adventures has been said to use the WaRP system (Let's Talk About Atlas Games' WaRP: The Wanton Role-Playing System). Also, Atlas Games has a part of its forum dedicated to OTE/WaRP, you should ask and check there. –  Nowhere man Feb 13 '13 at 2:36
@Nowhere man - sorry but this is not true. First of all, "Weird Adventures" is a "system neutral supplement", as clearly explained on rpgnow. And the article you cite says "Author +trey causey has been using it to run online games set in his excellent Weird Adventures setting." implying that the author uses it online but that's just a personal preference and it's not part of the sourcebook. –  p.marino Feb 13 '13 at 9:07

1 Answer 1

I reached out to Cam Banks (Atlas Games' brand manager) on Google+ and he indicated that he was unaware of any games at this time.
