We saw Blade Runner – The Roleplaying Game a while back and forget all about it until the campaign ended. Ugh. During its campaign, the game has rolled in over 1.6 million USD in funding and in the process, unlocked 26 stretch goals.
Thankfully, we are not too late because Free League Publishing (The One Ring, Tales From The Loop) and Alcon Entertainment have just kicked off the Late Pledges for their neon noir RPG. This highly anticipated RPG of 2022 is still available to order.
“Later this year, you will walk the mean streets of Los Angeles 2037 in a new game from the award-winning team behind the hit ALIEN RPG. The BLADE RUNNER RPG invites you into an evocative world of conflicts and contrasts that dares to ask the hard questions and investigate the powers of empathy, the poisons of fear, and the burdens of being human during inhumane times.”
And here are the contents of the Blade Runner RPG Starter Set:
Set in the year 2037, the adventures begin shortly after the Wallace Corporation debuts the new Nexus-9 Replicants on Earth, giving players the choice to play as either human or Replicant Blade Runners with different specialties, personalities, and memories.
Beyond the core casework, the game will both in setting and mechanics showcase key themes of Blade Runner – sci-fi action, corporate intrigue, existential character drama, and moral conflict.
As a member of the LAPD’s Rep-Detect Unit, you’ll face impossible choices and find beauty and humanity in the stubborn resilience to keep fighting. To persevere through pain. To agonize over itches you can’t scratch. To do questionable and extraordinary things.
Other than that, it’s just a normal day on the force, so get to work and grab some noodles on the way. That stack of cases won’t crack itself. It’s a shame you won’t live long enough to solve them all. But then again, who does?
The rules of the game are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as the official ALIEN RPG, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying, Tales From the Loop, and Forbidden Lands, but further developed and uniquely tailored for BLADE RUNNER.
