Modiphius has been working with the team at Arkane Studios and the co-director of the Dishonored video games, Harvey Smith, to bring their world to the tabletop in a new roleplaying game.

Dishonored RPG - Modiphius

If you like exploring the world of cutthroat killers, nefarious villains with hidden motives and twisted magic then this might be for you...

"In Dishonored: The Roleplaying Game, players delve into the turbulent Empire of the Isles, to tell stories of occult lore, intrigue and drama. The Dishonored Corebook contains all the rules and background information you need to kickstart your adventure."

Here is what the team at Modiphius has said will be a part of the core book which will be coming out this summer:-

  • 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 myriad different story hooks 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 serve as a perfect introduction to the City of Dunwall.
  • A streamlined narrative edition of the Modiphius 2d20 game system.

The 2D20 system that they are using to run the game has worked well in both Star Trek: Adventures and Conan so it certainly has a dedicated following. It seems like things have been tweaked even more here then in order to feed into a more narrative tone which is nice to see.

The Dishonoured world is one filled with characters that have ulterior motives and the shades of grey lie heavy over everything within the video game so it seems like the perfect breeding ground for a roleplaying adventure.

This is another fun example of people trying to bring those from the digital and analogue worlds together over the tabletop.

Will you be keeping an eye on this?
