Check out the official announcement below:

RuneScape is Finally Coming to Tabletop — Not Once, But Twice!

Monday 24 th January 14.00 UTC - Manchester, UK – RuneScape, one of the most popular and longest-running online role-playing video game franchises for PC, MAC, and mobile, is coming to tabletop gaming with two brand new games launching later this year.

Jagex, the leader in developing and publishing deep, community-driven video games and home to RuneScape , has teamed up with tabletop-gaming powerhouse, Steamforged Games, to create both a board game and tabletop roleplaying game (TTRPG) core book inspired by RuneScape’s rich fantasy world of Gielinor. Both games will make their debut in 2022, with the board game launching on Kickstarter and the TTRPG heading straight to stores.

Both games are set to delight RuneScape and Old School RuneScape’s player communities with fresh-but-faithful adaptations of classic quests and characters that weave iconic elements of the games into exciting tactile experiences reimagined for tabletop gaming.

The games will draw on adventures, characters, and locations from across RuneScape’s rich 21-year long history, with the board game taking between one to five players on quest-based campaigns through Gielinor. They will craft and upgrade equipment, upskill their characters, cook special recipes, engage with NPCs, and test their skills while exploring different regions of the world, with a variety of enticing side quests to distract and entertain them on the way.

The TTRPG will consist of a lavishly illustrated, hardback core book containing rules for players to run a RuneScape tabletop roleplaying game, in which they can build their own characters, explore Gielinor, and create unique and exciting quests. The TTRPG core book is also fully compatible with the fifth edition ruleset of the world’s favourite roleplaying tabletop game.

The RuneScape games will mark Steamforged’s twelfth adaptation of a video game for tabletop. Past adaptations have included the Monster Hunter: World board game, which grossed £3.4million on Kickstarter in 2021.

Phil Mansell, CEO of Jagex, said:

“After more than 21 years of being exclusively available digitally, it’s extremely exciting to be collaborating with Steamforged to create and deliver new RuneScape role-playing adventures to tabletop gamers. By launching the board game via a crowdfunding platform, Steamforged is mirroring our approach of involving the RuneScape communities in taking the game to tabletop. Given Steamforged’s experience and expertise in transforming video game experiences to tabletop, I’m sure that both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape players will be excited to get their hands on the planned miniatures to create their own adventures with other ’Scapers and board gamers”.

Mat Hart, Creative Director and CCO of Steamforged, said:

“Steamforged are honoured to be partnering with Jagex and together use our wealth of experience in adapting video games to bring one of the most popular online role-player games to tabletop. The rich RuneScape universe will translate beautifully to board and tabletop games, and using a crowdfunding platform and other dedicated community spaces will let us engage directly with fans of RuneScape and Old School RuneScape throughout development. Ready your rune armour, put on your party hat, and get ready to roll!”

RuneScape Kingdoms Board Game is Coming to Kickstarter!

Announcing RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg

Get ready to explore the sometimes epic, often irreverent world of Gielinor in RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg, the cooperative campaign board game for 1-5 players.

Classic and fun, RuneScape Kingdoms: SoE isn’t about complex strategy. Instead, through rich narrative quests and lighthearted distractions, this fantasy adventure game is designed to give those who already love the franchise a whole new way to play, and provide a way for brand new ‘Scapers to immerse themselves in the exciting world of RuneScape.

Explore the kingdoms of Asgarnia and Misthalin from above with a game board styled like a fast-travel map, jumping from region to region as you level up your skills and complete quests. Zoom in for face-to-face encounters with iconic bosses, that become even tougher as you work your way toward the final quest!

Whether you’re slaying mighty monsters, crafting awesome gear, or gathering eggs to bake that game-changing cake, RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg lets you play your way.

You choose what skills to max, which weapons to craft, and even where to explore next. Meander through Gielinor, sampling every side quest on the way, or keep your eyes on the prize and cut a straight path through the campaigns to take on challenging boss fights. With a classless progression system, every group member can contribute no matter how they play, maxing skills to level up and earn those all-important capes!

Whatever kind of ‘Scaper you choose to be, you’ll play an important role in the success of your group — because you never know when the fate of Gielinor will depend on baking the right pie!

‘RuneScape Kingdoms’?

Because it was really important to us for the board game to appeal to ‘Scapers of all of all kinds, it’s heavily inspired by content and references from both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape that will be familiar to players past and present.

We also created the board game as a way for brand new ‘Scapers to enjoy the rich world of Gielinor, even if you’ve never experienced the video games.

For all those reasons, it felt right to create a name that would embody what the board game is: A new way to explore the world of Gielinor.

And what exactly will you be exploring? Kingdoms, of course! Specifically, the kingdoms of Asgarnia and Misthalin. As the first realms created in the video games, and the core of the free-to-play areas, they’re rich in content and central to any new player’s journey. We wanted anyone experiencing new adventures in Gielinor on the tabletop to have that same sense of anticipation felt by any player starting out in RuneScape.

It would have been tough to pack every kingdom from the video game into a tabletop experience, and do them all justice. We wanted a game that was accessible as well as entertaining, and fitting a world’s worth of content into one board game would have made for one massive (and daunting) box!

Still, we haven’t even begun talking about expansions yet. And with a name like RuneScape Kingdoms, and 21 years of video game content to mine, who’s to say we couldn’t explore even more kingdoms as we add to the RuneScape tabletop experience…

But what about the other part of the name, you ask? A shadow looms over Gielinor, and we’re about to say hello to the one who’s casting it… with the first look at the board game miniatures!

For this, we’ll hand over to Jamie Perkins (Product Owner) to tell us more about the minis. Take it away, Jamie!

First Three Board Game Miniatures!

Not sure what a miniature is? Pause here for a second. Already know and keen to get to the good stuff? Keep scrolling!

What’s a Miniature?

A miniature is a small model, usually plastic, used to represent a character, enemy, or terrain piece in a board game. For example, the player character minis are scaled at 32mm on 25mm diameter bases. So, an average 6-foot-tall character would be roughly 32mm from foot to eye level. That’s a scale ratio of about 1:57!

The bigger, more imposing minis (we’re looking at you, bosses) will be scaled a little differently. Because these foes can be pretty gigantic in comparison to our brave adventurers, we’ve scaled them down a touch to fit with the experience. Each one stands on a 50mm base, with details to represent their unique scaling. Elvarg, for example, is 62mm to the tips of her wings, and her base is scattered with the relatively-scaled skulls of unfortunate adventurers!

Designing the Minis in RuneScape Kingdoms

To create the RuneScape Kingdoms minis, we worked with Jagex to develop a unique visual style that’d reflect the iconic outfits, NPC’s, and bosses from the past 21 years.

The look is inspired by RuneScape’s low-poly roots, but with all the detail you’d expect from a Steamforged mini. The first three minis will give you a taste of that style, and we can’t wait to reveal more in the coming weeks!

Playing with the Minis

In some board games, the mini you choose represents a specific type of character. Because set characters often come with specific equipment and abilities, the mini you choose will change how you play the game. In RuneScape Kingdoms , that’s not the case.

Instead, just like in the video games, your adventurer starts as a blank slate. No matter what miniature you choose, it’s entirely up to you how you build your skills, select equipment, and explore Gielinor.

You’ve got the freedom to pick a mini that represents the way you want to play the game, or to choose the one you most like the look of (or both!)

Of course, we still had ideas in mind when we designed the minis and chose their clothes. So, if you like thematic consistency, read on!

Knight

A melee powerhouse clad in trusty bronze armour, the knight faces every challenge with brash determination. No problem can’t be solved with a swing of their scimitar.

As voted for in the community survey, we armed the knight with melee equipment typically worn by players who are just starting out in RuneScape or Old School RuneScape : A bronze sword and shield, bronze plate body, legs, and helm.

Cheap and easy to acquire, it’s a straightforward route for getting to grips with melee combat.

Wizard

Through magic, all things are possible. Whether teleporting long distances, enchanting items with magical properties, or casting foes aside with elemental spells, the wizard is a blue-robed paragon of quick wit and explosions.

One of, if not the, earliest piece of magical equipment you can get your hands on in RuneScape or Old School RuneScape is the Staff of Air. Almost every budding wizard starts out their adventure with this trusty magic staff!

Not to mention blue wizard robes, which are an equally familiar sight among those recently initiated in the ways of magic…

Elvarg

Last but certainly not least, no hero is complete without their villainous counterpart. You’ll face many challenges on the way to face the mighty green dragon, Elvarg.

Take the ultimate champion’s test and put an end to the winged terror of Crandor, before Gielinor is consumed by shadow and fire…

La bonne surprise c’est un all in gameplay a 144 euros xD.

Quelqu’un peut me faire un topo du déroulement d’une partie ? J’ai rien compris sur la page du KS

Non sauf que c’est moche. Après je crois qu’on est dans un type jeu d’aventure style kilforth où on résout des quêtes pour se booster et affronter un boss final. Voilà…

Ouais j’ai survolé les vidéos et c’est : tu te déplace, tu tire une carte, tu la résout, tu level et une fois prêt tu attaque le boss sur un plateau 3x3. Pas pour moi au final :sweat_smile:
