Modiphius has now fired up pre-orders for both their Hardback Core Rulebook and the PDF for Dishonored: The Roleplaying Game. You can now embroil yourself in the backstabbing and intrigue of the Empire Of The Isles.

Dishonored Roleplaying Game Release Cover - Modiphius

Included within this book you'll find...

  • An introduction to the Empire of the Isles, and an in-depth look at its history, its people and the struggles they face.
  • A step-by-step guide to playing the role of the Protagonists: from grim assassins and rugged criminals to intrepid explorers and stoic crown loyalists.
  • A host of antagonists and a myriad different storyhooks to inspire you, from the harsh, cold lands of Tyvia to sunny Karnaca.
  • Insight on the strange nature of the Void, as well as rules to harness its reality-bending powers.
  • "The Oil Trail", a mini-campaign in four acts that serves as a perfect introduction to the City of Dunwall.

This all sounds very nice indeed and as someone who has always been intrigued by the world of Dishonored, this seems like a great entry point for learning about the world. Obviously, for big fans of the franchise, this is also a chance to play in this world at the tabletop using the 2d20 system and take on the role of assassins, criminals, explorers and loyalists. I could see a lot of skullduggery on the cards!

Also, I do like the way they've done some of the examples in the book...

This is a neat way to show the game in progress beyond just blocks of text and diagrams. It also gives you a little bit of a peek into the world that you're playing in and the way that you might imagine your characters looking.

Anyone who orders the physical version of the book will get a PDF right away for free. This means you can start playing right away. Obviously, with the world as it is right now the actual physical release of the book might be held back slightly but even the separate PDF Version can be downloaded and played with immediately which is grand.

Are you tempted by Dishonored?
