Modiphius Entertainment Announces Dishonored RPG

January 28, 2020 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Video games and roleplaying games often go hand-in-hand, with one making a natural source of material for the other. And Modiphius Entertainment is facilitating the latest in that crossover as they’ve announced Dishonored: The Roleplaying Game. The roleplaying game studio has announced that Dishonored: The Roleplaying Game is on the way, created in collaboration with the video game’s co-creative director Harvey Smith.

The game is set in Arkane Studios’ game franchise and was developed with a streamlined version of Modiphius’ 2d20 system that has been used in its Star Trek Adventures and Conan roleplaying games. Nathan Dowdell has adapted the system to Dishonored, which will arrive this summer. The game will be released in a deluxe hardcover digest book with everything players and stortellers need and Modiphius will release custom dice, cards, and other accessories alongside the book.

The book is announced as follows:

In Dishonored: The Roleplaying Game, players delve into the turbulent Empire of the Isles, to tell stories of occult lore, intrigue and drama. The Dishonored Corebook contains all the rules and background information you need to kickstart your adventure.

​The 300 page book features:
* An introduction to the Empire of the Isles, and an in-depth look at its history, its people and the struggles they face.
* A step-by-step guide to play the role of the Protagonists: from grim assassins and rugged criminals, to intrepid explorers and stoic crown loyalists.
* A host of antagonists and a myriad different storyhooks to inspire you, from the harsh, cold lands of Tyvia to sunny Karnaca.
* Insight on the strange nature of the Void, as well as rules to harness the its reality-bending powers.
* “The Oil Trail”, a mini-campaign in four acts that serves as a perfect introduction to the City of Dunwall.
* A streamlined narrative edition of the Modiphius 2d20 game system
