The title pretty much says it all. I know the magic wouldn't really work, but I'm more interested about high level characters such as Karsa. How well does MW do with epic level characters?

BRP can do high level, despite the low gritty focus. The Stormbringer/Elric rules that were the forerunner for MagicWorld particularly emphasised mastery-level skills (above 100%), and this along with the new Arete rules for MagicWorld can easily do high level characters. For a pulpy game I'ld recommend a system like FATE, but for powerful characters in a gritty setting (such as Malazan), then MagicWorld can certainly do a good job
