Mantic Games Hellboy RPG Unboxing and Wonder

15 Mar

Mantic Games is still shipping the Hellboy RPG to Kickstarter backers for the past week and a half, and yes, I got my copy! The following video is my reaction to examining this product in under ten minutes, and I can’t wait to GM a session! I have friends interested in playing and I’ll need a week or two to learn the rules. A followup article is under consideration so I can provide a more in-depth analysis after we played the game. Stay tuned!

Addendum:

I opted not to pick up the miniatures that came with the next tier of this Hellboy RPG Kickstarter and have no regrets. It looks like most of them can be obtained directly from the publisher as part of the board game expansion products. A street release may be coming later in the year. To keep tabs on when this will become available, please visit the official website for the latest updates.

Update: May 1, 2022: B.P.R.D. Field Manual is an optional upgrade that, while available for all pledge levels, was deceptive in the item description; I thought I’d get it as one of the unlocked stretch goals but only as a digital file. I thought a print version could come along with mine, but it isn’t. It’s for GMs so they can design a game.

Mantic Games is excited to announce that it is partnering with Dark Horse Comics and visionary creator Mike Mignola to bring Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game to Kickstarter this summer. This game will be a whole new way to explore the Hellboy and B.P.R.D. universe while creating your own spectacular one-off stories or action-packed chronicles.

Powered by the world’s most popular RPG ruleset, Fifth Edition, Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game gives you the tools to step into the shoes of a B.P.R.D. agent, ready to face the forces of evil. You can become a field researcher skilled in the study of the occult, a hard-nosed B.P.R.D. security agent, a rookie with hidden supernatural powers, and more…. The choice is yours.
