Dishonored Gets A Tabletop RPG By Modiphius Entertainment

It’s time to take to the streets of the Dunwall once more, as we are getting a Dishonored tabletop roleplaying game by Modiphius Entertainment – the same folks that developed the Alien tabletop RPG last year.

Dishonored: The Roleplaying Game is set in the same world of the award-winning video game franchise developed by Arkane Studios.

The RPG will be designed using Modiphius’ patented 2d20 system (a system that utilises two 20-sided dice), as was seen in the likes of its other titles in Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of and Star Trek Adventures. It will be produced in collaboration with Harvey Smith, the original co-creator of the games.

In typical Dishonored fashion, the RPG will allow a group of players and a Game Master (GM) to take on the role of Protagonists who possess unique skills to slink in and out of the shadows of the Empire of the Isles.

Here’s a list of the rest of the 300-page RPG’s 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 story hooks 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 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.   

Dishonored: The Roleplaying Game is slated for release sometime in Summer 2020.
