RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game
Let’s rewind to January 2022 when whispers of RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game first surfaced. Recognizing that RuneScape’s unique essence needed a tailor-made roleplaying system, Steamforged Games embarked on creating one from scratch.
This bespoke system is designed to be user-friendly, elegant, and deeply rooted in RuneScape lore. It equips game masters of all experience levels to run authentic RuneScape campaigns. The core book is a treasure trove of content, offering an in-depth guide to Gielinor, character creation rules, an expansive crafting system, iconic weapons and spells, and a bestiary brimming with monsters and formidable bosses.
In late September, you can pre-order this core book alongside the board game. Moreover, an opulent Collector’s Edition packed with exclusive goodies will be unveiled soon.
Richard August, the lead writer and designer of the roleplaying game, shared his excitement, saying, “Working on RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game has been a dream project, and there’s so much more to share. We’re immensely proud of the game and can’t wait to showcase it in greater detail… especially the breathtaking 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 own terms. Embark on quests, refine your skills, meet unforgettable characters, craft powerful gear, and, of course, be drawn into captivating side quests.
Along the way, you’ll confront formidable bosses, earn those coveted capes, and partake in various activities, from baking game-changing cakes to rescuing Gielinor from fiery catastrophe.
The board game initially made waves on Kickstarter in 2022, where thousands of fans rallied to bring it to life. Following extensive refinement and polishing, it’s now poised to grace your tabletops with epic RuneScape adventures.
Exclusive Expansions and More
The pre-order extends beyond the core games, offering exclusive, limited expansions from the Kickstarter campaign, exclusively available through Steamforged Games. These expansions introduce beloved characters such as the Culinaromancer, Kalphite Queen, and TzKal-Zuk, alongside a Deluxe Expansion featuring 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.
Jamie Perkins, lead designer of the board game, shared, “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.”
