Return to Dark Tower!

Based on the classic 80s board game RETURN TO DARK TOWER, Return to Dark Tower: Fantasy Roleplaying is an upcoming RPG from 9th Level Games. Dive into a dark fantasy pulp-style adventure where you face-off against a dark adversary, and decide the fate of the world!

Return to Dark Tower runs on the polymorph™ system, which lets you run the game with a single polyhedral die. Each campaign runs from three to five sessions, each with its own dangers, monsters, and enemies to defeat.

Start the game by building a Adversary. Discuss who the big bad is: why are they doing what they are doing? Are they entirely evil? Or perhaps is there something else underneath? The Adversary role will be taken on by a player (AKA a Game Master) to control combat encounters, create challenges, and run game sessions.

Players will work together to stop the Adversary over the course of one year. Each team action can take any amount of time depending on the difficulty, from hours, to days, to weeks, to months. If you are unable to succeed within the one year time frame, then the Adversary wins, and all is lost.

But don’t think that you are all alone. Each player creates a Companion to help them through the story. The Companion could be anything, from a combat character or more socially oriented. Take as much help as you can get – you’re going to need it.

Return to Dark Tower comes out in May, 2023! Back your copy here!

Batman: Gotham City Chronicles Season 3 & RPG!

The Dark Knight has returned to save Gotham once again! Batman: Gotham City Chronicles has two new releases for 2023: Season 3 of the Gotham City miniatures game, and a brand new roleplaying game. Become the heroes or villains of Gotham as you leave behind a trial of order or madness in your wake.

Season 3 of Gotham City Chronicles throws you into the heart of chaos. Cheshire, Merlyn, and Punchline have taken over the city with two other mystery villains. This leaves only Batman, Batgirl, Red Hood, and Ghostmaker to take on the overrun capital.

Choose up to four players to become the members of the Bat family, and choose one player to become the Villains. Follow each story scenario, and dive deeper into the criminal machinations threatening the city. Will Gotham be saved by the Bat? Or will the city finally fall to ruin?

In Gotham City Chronicles: The Roleplaying Game, become the hero or villain you have always wanted to see in Gotham. Choose your Heroic or Villainous path, mixing in every shade of grey as you would like. Choose your six stats from the Untold Tales Modern system, and build your character for either a one-shot or to be levelled up over multiple sessions. Take to the night and protect or destroy Gotham – the choice is yours.

Batman: Gotham City Chronicles Season 3 and RPG comes out in September, 2023. Back your copy here!

Household!

It’s time to dive into the smallest fantasy adventure with the biggest heart! Household is a fantasy adventure RPG where you play as a Little Folk adventuring in the wilds of an abandoned home. Go to glamorous regency-era events, fight against insects, and save your community from the dangers of the house you call home!

Choose to play as one of the four main types of Littlings: Fairy’s, known for their glitz and glamour; Boggarts, known for their martial prowess; Sluagh, known for their resilience; or Sprites, known for their attunement with nature. Choose a Profession and a Vocation to finalize your abilities and actions.

Household is powered by the Favoured By Fortune system. This system is heavily inspired by the Fortune System established in the adventure RPG Broken Compass. In this system, special dice will have different card suits across the sides: Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, and Spades. Your aim is not to hit a set number, but instead to create sets of symbols. Your dice hand size is six, which you will roll for performing special actions. You can use the Joker side to match with any suit that you have rolled, but the Blank side will leave you with nothing.

Household comes out in June 2023! Back your copy here!

Bloodpunk 5e!

Inspired by the genres of steampunk and cyberpunk, Bloodpunk is an upcoming D&D 5e campaign guide! Explore the dark lands of Tolia, use blood powered weapons and machinery, and save this techno-Victorian world from blood-drinking creatures of the night!

Tolia is a land of darkness and ruin. Magic is not run through crystals or components, but instead through blood. Vampires and sorcerers have become the ruling class of the lands, endlessly fighting each other for more and more power. If blood is not being used to cast spells or use magic items, it is used to run the blood engines of the regime – trains, zeppelins, and other powerful machinery.

But there are a few mortals willing to stand up for their kinsmen. The time for revolution is upon us…

Upgrade your character with one of the twenty new class archetypes, including the Sanguine Domain for Clerics or the Bounty Hunter for Rogues. Travel across the land of Tolia, fight terrifying beasts, and survive the streets of the cities of Kanrath and Cyherested!

Take your players on an adventure from levels 1-7 in the campaign Heritage of the Damned. Defeat the Crimson King of Kanrath as you collect allies, obtain powerful weapons, and defeat legions of undead. Use new weapons, including Bloodwork firearms, to wipe out your opponents with ease.

But be careful that you are not bitten by any of the ruling vampires. If so, you may find yourself undergo Blood Degeneration, causing you to turn into a monster of the Crimson King’s control.

Bloodpunk comes out in December 2022! Back your copy here!

DIE: The Roleplaying Game!

Based on the Image comic book series by Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans, DIE: The Roleplaying Game throws you into a world of fantasy-horror where RPGs meet reality. Play as a flawed people who get pulled into a magical RPG setting and must decide if they want to return home, or become something new…

As with many fantasy roleplaying games, the players will be able to build their fantasy character as one of five classes: you could play the charismatic Dictator; the supernaturally lucky Fool; the vicious Emotion Knight; the technomagic Neos; or the divine Godbinder.

But this is not the only character you will play. You will also need to build your ‘real world’ equivalent in-game. Who is the meta-player you will be running? What are they like? What challenges do they face? If they entered a fantasy world, would they really want to go back to their old lives?

The GM will play as the Master, a meta-wizard who is able to travel between worlds. They balance the odds of space and time against the players… but are not afraid of outright cheating.

Will you be able to save yourself from this world of tantalizing adventure? Or will a vengeful Master smite you before you can even start?

DIE: The Roleplaying Game comes out digitally in July 2022, and comes out with physical copies in November 2022! Back your copy here!
