RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game
Back in January 2022, the gaming world received whispers of RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game. It was clear from the start that capturing the essence of RuneScape required a bespoke roleplaying system, and that’s exactly what Steamforged Games has crafted.
This system is designed to be accessible, elegant, and deeply rooted in the RuneScape universe. Game masters of all experience levels will be able to run authentic RuneScape campaigns. The core book includes not only an in-depth guide to Gielinor but also character creation rules, an extensive crafting system, iconic weapons and spells, and a bestiary filled with monsters and bosses.
In September, you can pre-order this core book alongside the board game. Additionally, a luxurious Collector’s Edition, promising exclusive treasures, will be revealed soon.
Richard August, the lead writer and designer of the roleplaying game, expressed 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 really proud of the game and can’t wait to show it off in more detail… especially the truly gorgeous Collector’s Edition!”
RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg
As for the board game, get ready for cooperative campaigns that allow you to experience RuneScape your way. You’ll embark on quests, develop your skills, meet unforgettable characters, craft incredible gear, and, of course, be tempted by intriguing side quests.
Along the way, you’ll face formidable bosses, earn those coveted capes, and engage in various activities, from baking game-changing cakes to saving Gielinor from fiery ruin.
The board game made its debut on Kickstarter in 2022, where thousands of fans pledged to bring it to life. Now, after extensive polishing and refining, it’s ready to grace your tabletops with glorious RuneScape adventures.
Exclusive Expansions and More
The pre-order also includes exclusive, limited expansions from the Kickstarter campaign, available only from Steamforged Games. These expansions feature characters like the Culinaromancer, Kalphite Queen, and TzKal-Zuk, and they come with a Deluxe Expansion that includes luxury 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 available through this pre-order, as well as from other great retailers.
Jamie Perkins, lead designer of the board game, said, “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, get ready to embark on a journey through Gielinor like never before. Subscribe for updates on the pre-order launch happening on September 29 and prepare to dive into the world of RuneScape Kingdoms.
