Hellboy the Roleplaying Game now live on Kickstarter. Mantic Games


He is one of the most iconic comic book heroes of the past thirty years and has a huge army of fans around the world and now you can immerse yourself in the universe of Hellboy and fight against the occult with this all new Kickstarter from the guys at Mantic Games!

From the Press Release

Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game is live RIGHT NOW on Kickstarter. We’re delighted to be bringing this project to life as we love Hellboy here at Mantic. In fact, since working on Hellboy: The Board Game we started chatting about how great a Hellboy RPG would be… we just needed someone to help us write it.

Step up to the plate, Red Scar Publishing! We’ve been working with Red Scar on the Kings of War: Roleplaying Game and the experience has been a blast. Marc and the team spend countless days, weeks and months researching the topic to really nail the feel of the source material. Once we’d given Red Scar the green light, Marc assembled a group of agents that would make the B.P.R.D. proud.

The team has done a remarkable job of taking the open source 5E rules and giving them a thorough Hellboy makeover. Elements like doom and ingenuity really help to bring this closer to the Hellboy: The Board Game experience and the options when creating your agent will make you feel like you’re part of the B.P.R.D. What’s more, even if you’ve never played an RPG in your life, the full book will contain everything you need to get started.

Get a taste for the game with the quickstart, which includes an example scenario and pre-generated characters ready to hit the tabletop. The quickstart is a great taste of the full Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game experience and, although it doesn’t contain all the unique and special rules that make the RPG so engaging, it provides a fantastic starting point.

You can back the Kickstarter here.

The campaign went live less than thirty minutes of me writing this post, and has already smashed its target goal, making it fully funded, everything else now is just stretch goals.  Click on the link above to check out the campaign and back a winner.
