Mantic Games, who make the Hellboy board game and Dark Horse Comics today announced a new Hellboy RPG.
Kings of War RPG is available in two flavours; Red Scar’s TriCore and 5e. Hellboy is sticking with just 5e.
As you might expect, there’s a Kickstarter planned, and you can sign up for reminders here. Well over 1,000 gamers have already done so.
Mantic Games raised nearly $2m on the board game’s Kickstarter, so they clearly have a fat channel of communication to a whole bunch of Hellboy fans and gamers.
In the RPG, players are modern BRPD agents, and we’re expecting a quickstart version before the full game is out, as Red Scar has done that for every one of their games so far.
EN World, which is connected to Marc Langworthy via the Judge Dredd RPG, has this quickstart cover on display.
Previously, Steve Jackson games published Hellboy using GURPs.
