Mantic Games and Red Scar Publishing are currently Kickstarting Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game, based on Mike Mignola’s famed Dark Horse comic series. The system is build upon the 5E OGL and will transport players into the world of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. The project is already nearly 700% funded and you can reserve a digital copy of the core book, plus unlocked stretch goals, for a $14.00 pledge or grab the hardcover and digital edition for a $40.00 pledge through September 7th. Expected delivery is May of next year.
Created by Mantic Games, the board game publisher behind Hellboy: The Board Game, and the team at Red Scar Publishing, Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game is a totally new way to experience the inspirational work of Mike Mignola.
In this standalone game, you become a member of the B.P.R.D. and build your character from the ground up. Will you be a researcher skilled in the study of the occult, a hard-nosed B.P.R.D. security agent, a rookie with hidden supernatural powers and more… the choice is yours.
Based on the hugely popular 5th Edition, we’ve made sure that Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game truly captures the experience of the graphic novels. We’ve added new mechanics – such as Doom and Ingenuity – along with unique classes and feats that drive the agents of the B.P.R.D. in their mission to wipe out supernatural threats.
When creating your agent, you’ll have a range of skills to choose from. Will you specialise in science, technology, investigations, or become an expert in the study of the occult? Making the most of your special skills will be key in piecing together the clues and completing the case.
Just like the boardgame, you’ll have all you need to begin your adventures in the world of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. The 240-page book contains all the rules you’ll need for learning 5th Edition, along with detailed instructions on creating your character and an epic Case File to play through.
