Nightfall Games have partnered with Mantic to produce the Hellboy RPG.
The 5e-powered tabletop RPG will be available from Nightfall at Dragonmeet this weekend, along with the dice and GM screens. The PDFs of the game will move to Nightfall’s virtual shelves at DriveThruRPG.
Nightfall will create a discounted Hellboy RPG bundle and work with Mantic Games on new Hellboy RPG products. The companies will also combine forces on the upcoming Korhonen series, B.P.R.D. cases written by Benn Graybeaton and previous Hellboy RPG contributors.
Mark Rapson, the Managing Director at Nightfall Games, told the press;
I have long been an admirer of Mantic Games, their people and products and a long time fan of everything Hellboy. To be able to be part of getting ‘Hellboy RPG’ out to the roleplaying community is a great honour for Nightfall Games.”
Ronnie Renton, Mantic’s CEO, added;
Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth. The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast paced Role-Playing Game that will let players experience some of their favourite moments from the series and also create whole new adventures of their own. We are excited to be working with Nightfall Games to get our products out to the RPG community”
Hellboy isn’t the only RPG Nightfall added to their care this year. The SLA Industries and Terminator publisher secured the supernatural SINS RPG, also offering a bundle deal at that time. SINS’ core rules is currently the hottest Nightfall title at DriveThruRPG.
Update: The Hellboy: The RPG Starter Set bundle is now live.
