Prototype of Tales From the Loop – The Board Game

The Kickstarter for Tales From the Loop – The Board Game was launched today by Free League Publishing. The game, based on the universe created by artist and author Simon Stålenhag recently adapted to a tv series on Amazon Prime Video, offers cooperative gameplay using robot miniatures by Paolo Parente’s Dust Studio. A complete Print ‘n Play kit can be downloaded for free from the Kickstarter.

Simon Stålenhag is the internationally lauded artist and author of Tales From the Loop and Things From the Flood, narrative art books published by Free League that stunned the world with a vision of an alternate Scandinavia in the 1980s and ‘90s, where technology invaded tranquil landscapes to form an entirely new universe of the eerie and the nostalgic.

In 2017, Free League published a tabletop roleplaying game based on Tales From the Loop, which went on to win five Gold ENnie Awards, including Best Game and Product of the Year. A tv series adaptation of Tales From the Loop was launched just a few days ago on Amazon Prime Video.

Tales From the Loop – The Board Game lets players take another step into the amazing world of the Loop. In the 1-5 players take the roles of teenagers who investigate the mysteries originating from the Loop, a huge underground science facility with strange effects on the suburban landscapes around it – but they also need to make sure they’re home in time for dinner!

Tales From the Loop – The Boardgame is designed by Martin Takaichi and includes high-quality miniatures by Paolo Parente’s Dust Studio.

To let players try out Tales From the Loop – The Board Game for themselves, Free League provides a Print ‘n Play kit of the current Alpha game prototype for download from the Kickstarter page. The Print ‘n Play kit includes four characters and one scenario to play.

You can find the Kickstarter here.

The Free League website can be found here.

MÖRK BORG ​Artpunk RPG Released Today By Free League Publishing

Free League Publishing – Feb 25, 2020 14:00 GMT

MÖRK BORG Artpunk RPG Released Today

A doom metal album of a game. A spiked flail to the face. Rules light, heavy everything else. Today, artpunk roleplaying game MÖRK BORG was officially released by Free League Publishing. Designed by Ockult Örtmästare Games and Stockholm Kartell, MÖRK BORG is the first RPG to be published under Free League Workshop, Free League Publishing’s sublabel for selected externally developed games.

MÖRK BORG is a pitch-black apocalyptic fantasy RPG about lost souls and fools seeking redemption, forgiveness or the last remaining riches in a bleak and decaying world. Who are you? The tomb-robber with silver glittering between cracked fingernails? The mystic who would bend the world’s heart away from it’s inevitable end? The world is dying. And you with it.

MÖRK BORG is available at the Free League webshop, at DrivethruRPG, and select retail stores.

PREVIEW QUOTES:

“It manages to cram pure brilliance into such tight spaces that its outright confounding at times.”
The Dread Gazebo

”Satan’s real—and he lives in Sweden.”
Adam Koebel’s First Look

Confront power-draining necromancers, skulking skeletal warriors and backstabbing wickheads. Wander the Valley of the Unfortunate Undead, the catacombs beneath the Bergen Chrypt or the bedevilled Sarkash forest. But leave hope behind – the world’s cruel fate is sealed, and all your vain heroic efforts are destined to end in death and dismay. Or are they?

MÖRK BORG is a complete game in the OSR genre, that can be played as is or be picked apart for use in your own homebrew. The rules are easily made compatible with most other major fantasy roleplaying games. Within the book you’ll find:

  • A brief look at this dying world. From The Two-Headed Basilisks’ gothic cathedral in Galgenbeck and Blood-countess Anthelia’s limestone palace, to the fields of death in Graven-Tosk and the barren wastes of Kergüs.
  • The Calendar of Nechrubel, that decides the speed of the world’s demise.
  • 20 occult Powers that let you bend reality, and just as many magical catastrophes for when you disastrously fail.
  • Optional rules which bring more depth to the game. Omens let you turn bad luck into a slightly better one. Classes with unique traits and quirks, and tables that will bring life into your character.
  • 12 creatures to be murdered by.
  • Game master tools such as tables for corpse plundering, occult treasure, adventure sparks, dungeon generating and other devilry.
  • The introductory dungeon crawl scenario Rotblack Sludge, where you investigate a forgotten part of the Shadow King’s enormous ruin palace. Cannibal warlocks, poison peddlers from beyond the void and hungry gutworms await.

MÖRK BORG is designed by Pelle Nilsson (Ockult Örtmästare Games) and Johan Nohr (Stockholm Kartell). The game is published by Free League Publishing and is available in Swedish and English. The English text is edited and cursed by Patrick Stuart (Veins of the Earth, Silent Titans).

Press Release: The Official ALIEN Tabletop Roleplaying Game Coming December 10

The Official ALIEN Tabletop Roleplaying Game Coming December 10

Free League Publishing – Nov 12, 2019 13:00 GMT

The ALIEN Roleplaying Game

This news item contains embedded media. Open the news item in your browser to see the content.

The xenomorphs are coming to game night! On December 10, Free League Publishing and 20th Century Fox will launch the official ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game. The massive 392-page core rulebook will be released along with a host of supplements.

Taking place shortly after the events of Aliens, the RPG will propel players into the vast possibilities of the Outer Rim Frontier. From the pioneering colonists and scientists to the ever-present Company reps and Colonial Marines, the game promises a diverse range of characters and gameplay experiences far beyond the staple cat-and-mouse suspense and survival horror of the franchise.

The ALIEN RPG is a beautifully illustrated full-color hardcover book, both presenting the world of ALIEN in the year 2183 and a fast and effective ruleset designed specifically to enhance the ALIEN experience. The game can be played in two distinct game modes: Cinematic play and Campaign play.

Cinematic play is based on pre-made scenarios that emulate the dramatic arc of an ALIEN film. Designed to be played in a single session, this game mode emphasizes high stakes and fast and brutal play. Player characters are not all expected to survive. The core rulebook will be published alongside the complete Cinematic scenario Chariot of the Gods by sci-fi novelist Andrew E.C. Gaska, who is also the setting writer and canon consultant for the RPG. Campaign play is designed for longer continuous play with the same cast of characters over many game sessions, letting players explore the ALIEN universe freely, sandbox style.

The rules of the game are designed by game director Tomas Härenstam and based on the Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as Tales From the Loop, Forbidden Lands, and Mutant: Year Zero, but adapted and further developed to fully support and enhance the core themes of ALIEN: horror and action in the cold darkness of space.

The core rulebook will be launched alongside a range of supplements, inlucuding the Chariot of the Gods scenario, custom dice, a GM Screen, and a set of useful maps and markers. All items will be available on the Free League website and in retail stores worldwide from December 10.

THE FUTURE

The launch of the ALIEN RPG is just the first step of a long-term licensing partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, drawing upon four decades of world-building within this beloved universe. The first expansions to the core game are planned for August 2020.

The Fox-Free League licensing deal was brokered by Joe LeFavi of Genuine Entertainment, who manages the license on behalf of Free League and serve as an editor on the game series. Alien is the latest in a slew of high-profile tabletop deals by LeFavi, including the master tabletop gaming license for Dune, the tabletop RPG series for Altered Carbon, and multiple brand extensions of World of Darkness.

PRESS RELEASE: Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying by Free League Publishing Funded in 13 Minutes on Kickstarter

Free League Publishing

Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying by Free League Publishing Funded in 13 Minutes on Kickstarter

Free League Publishing – Nov 05, 2019 13:18 GMT

Today, the Kickstarter for the new Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying game line was launched by Free League Publishing, makers of the Tales From the Loop and ALIEN RPGs. Vaesen presents a unique take on Gothic horror roleplaying, in a dark Nordic setting steeped in folklore and old myths of Scandinavia. The Kickstarter reached its base funding goal in just 13 minutes.

In dark forests, beyond the mountains, by black lakes in hidden groves. At your doorstep. In the shadows, something stirs. Strange beings. Twisted creatures, lurking at the edge of vision. Watching. Waiting. Unseen by most, but not by you. You see them for what they really are.

Vaesen.

Written by award-winning author Nils Hintze (Tales From the Loop RPG) and based on the work of Swedish illustrator and author Johan EgerkransVaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying presents a dark Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore and old myths of Scandinavia. The game mechanics use an adapted version of the award-winning Year Zero Engine.

Vaesen takes place in the Mythic North – northern Europe of the nineteenth century, but not as we know it today. A land where the myths are real. A cold reach covered by vast forests, its few cities lonely beacons of industry and enlightenment – a new civilization dawning. But in the countryside, the old ways still hold sway. There, people know what lurks in the dark.

They know to fear it.

In Vaesen, the players take the roles of individuals born different. They have the Sight – the ability to see what ordinary people cannot. They know that vaesen have lived beside humanity for untold centuries, in an uneasy peace. Not anymore. Rumors spread of kittens born with two heads, streams red from blood, groves lulling children into eternal sleep, fairies dancing through villages, luring the young into the woods to be forever enthralled.

Embarking on journeys to remote villages in the wilderness, the players will uncover the secrets of the Mythic North. Armed with nothing but their courage, conviction, and ability to see the supernatural, they will face the creatures of the forest.

You can find the Kickstarter here.

The Free League website can be found here.
