RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game
Cast your mind back to January 2022 when whispers of RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game first emerged. It was evident from the beginning that capturing the essence of RuneScape would require a unique roleplaying system, and Steamforged Games rose to the challenge.
This bespoke system is designed to be accessible, elegant, and deeply rooted in the RuneScape lore. Game masters of all experience levels will be able to run authentic RuneScape campaigns. The core book is a treasure trove, offering an in-depth guide to Gielinor, character creation rules, an extensive crafting system, iconic weapons and spells, and a bestiary teeming with monsters and formidable bosses.
In September, you can pre-order this core book alongside the board game. Additionally, a luxurious Collector’s Edition, filled with exclusive surprises, is set to be revealed soon.
Richard August, the lead writer and designer of the roleplaying game, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “Working on RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game has been a dream project, and there’s so much more to share. We’re really proud of the game and can’t wait to showcase it in more detail… especially the truly magnificent Collector’s Edition!”
RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg
As for the board game, brace yourself for cooperative campaigns that allow you to experience RuneScape on your terms. Embark on quests, hone your skills, encounter unforgettable characters, craft formidable gear, and, naturally, become ensnared by captivating side quests.
During your journey, you’ll confront mighty bosses, earn those coveted capes, and partake in various activities, from baking game-changing cakes to rescuing Gielinor from fiery devastation.
The board game made its initial appearance on Kickstarter in 2022, where thousands of fans rallied to bring it to life. After extensive polishing and refining, it’s now primed to grace your tabletops with thrilling RuneScape adventures.
Exclusive Expansions and More
The pre-order isn’t just about the core games; it also boasts exclusive, limited expansions from the Kickstarter campaign, available solely through Steamforged Games. These expansions introduce beloved characters such as the Culinaromancer, Kalphite Queen, and TzKal-Zuk, alongside a Deluxe Expansion offering luxurious component upgrades like neoprene mats and metal coins.
Both the RuneScape Kingdoms core game, Shadow of Elvarg, and the formidable King Black Dragon expansion will be accessible through this pre-order, as well as from other reputable retailers.
Countdown to Adventure
Jamie Perkins, lead designer of the board game, remarked, “We can’t wait for the community to get their hands on this game. As a long-time fan and player of RuneScape, it’s been a pleasure spending time in this universe and an honor to create our own piece of it. Just like RuneScape introduced me to the world of MMORPG’s, I hope RuneScape Kingdoms can introduce video gamers to the joys of tabletop gaming.”
So, fellow adventurers, prepare to embark on a journey through the enchanting world of Gielinor like never before.
