Two tabletop games based on RuneScape will launch later this year. Jagex, the developer behind RuneScape, has partnered with Steamforged Games to create a RuneScape board game and a RuneScape tabletop role-playing game. Both games will dive into the fantasy world of Gielinor and the lore of RuneScape. The board game will launch on Kickstarter later in 2022, while the tabletop RPG will head straight to stores.
The board game is designed for one to five players and focuses on a quest-based campaign. Some of the mechanics include crafting equipment, cooking recipes, and interacting with NPCs.
The tabletop RPG, meanwhile, will be a fully illustrated, hardcover book with rules for players to create their own RuneScape inspired campaigns. The press release also notes that the RuneScape TTRPG will be “fully compatible with the fifth edition ruleset of the world’s favourite roleplaying tabletop game.”
RuneScape launched in 2001. Originally a browser-based game, RuneScape is now available on Android, iOS, and Steam.
