Mantic Games, Red Scar and Dark Horse Comics are working together once more on something big and red as they announced that there will be a Kickstarter for Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game launching this summer.

Using the 5th Edition rules to power the game with a bunch of additional tweaks here and there to make it feel more "Hellboy", this will allow you to step into the shoes of a B.P.R.D agent against the forces of evil. You can be a grizzled mercenary, a skilled and bookish researcher or perhaps a field agent with supernatural powers at their command.

The rules, penned by Marc Langworthy are pretty intuitive from what we've seen (more on that later in the month!) and it did feel like a good marrying of the easy-to-understand D&D rules and what Red Scar have bolted on. There is much more of an emphasis on teamwork and cooperation plus some funky ways to empower both the players and the storyteller during the telling of your tale.

Hellboy The Roleplaying Game Quickstart // Mantic Games

When the Kickstarter launches, you'll be able to get your hands on a Quickstart (pictured above) which features six characters for you to take control of and all of the rules you need to play. The adventure for this is a lot of fun (again, more on that later...we're such teases!) and feels very "Hellboy" so I would encourage people to try it out.

You can be notified of the launch of the Kickstarter campaign by clicking this link HERE. Obviously, one of the big bonuses for those who have played the board game from Mantic is that you can use all of the miniatures from it during the roleplaying game too! I believe there are even a few ways that you can make good use of the components from the board game in interesting ways too.

Are you going to be keeping an eye out for this?
