RuneScape Kingdoms Board Game & Roleplaying Game - Out Now!

Written by developer on . Posted in RuneScape News

Board Game and Roleplaying Game - Out Now!  

RuneScape comes to the tabletop! The RuneScape Kingdoms Board Game and Roleplaying Game, published by Steamforged Games, hit retailers around the world today*.

For the full range, including exclusives, check out Steamforged’s store.  For alternative stockists of the core retail lines, search ‘RuneScape Kingdoms’ to find online stores, or visit your friendly local board game retailer to order a copy.

If you’re an early bird who already has a copy, keep reading! We’ll be updating this newspost with more resources from Steamforged, including blogs about the games, tips for running a TTRPG campaign, miniature painting tutorials (bring a magnifying glass for that one) and playthroughs!

* due to shipping issues in the Red Sea, UK/EU retail release of the board game may be delayed until early March.

RuneScape Kingdoms Board Game

RuneScape Kingdoms is a cooperative campaign board game you can play alone or with up to four friends!

Step into the sometimes epic, often irreverent world of Gielinor where your goal could be simple: Become the wealthiest, most skilled, best-geared adventurer there is! Alternatively, you could figure out how to get just enough of all three to succeed as a party and win the day. You could even spend the whole time collecting cabbages and simply let your friends do what they do best. The choices are yours!

However you decide to play, Gielinor needs capable folk to help its inhabitants and keep monsters at bay, and that’s where you step in. One minute you’re slaying a vampyre that’s been terrorising a village. The next, you’re helping Gertrude find her beloved cat!

Like chapters in a book, your tabletop adventure is split into campaigns, each one inspired by an iconic quest. Campaigns are made up of two phases:

First is the exploration phase, where you’ll explore the kingdoms of Asgarnia and Misthalin from above on a game board styled like a fast-travel map. Every location gives you different things to do — whether that’s gathering and sharing resources, levelling up skills, or drawing from the exploration deck for a surprise encounter! Expansions can also add other regions to the game, expanding the game board even further.

Don’t get too distracted, though! The exploration phase has set quests you’ll need to complete to keep your group moving forward. Spend too long gathering cabbages or engaging in goblin diplomacy, and the escalation track will rise, making the world around you more dangerous until you finally take on the boss…

In the second phase, you’ll face the boss. Zoom in for face-to-face fights on dedicated game boards that bring the bosses — and their lairs — to life!  Each boss will take all the skills of your group — yes, even Cooking — to defeat. Pulled into close combat on unfamiliar terrain, your group’s shared health pool is all that stands between you and Death. Roll the dice to strike, protect yourself, and push the boss back. Use your wits to plan ahead and influence the flow of combat to throw the boss off balance. Don’t expect the boss to take your onslaught lying down – they, too, have ways to keep you on your toes...

The story woven through each campaign will immerse you in the world of Gielinor, while optional side quests, exploration decks, a vault, and an event deck will let you play your way for a new experience every time.

Even your adventurer starts as a blank slate. There are no fixed classes in this game! You choose what skills to max and what gear to craft. Use those skills and gear to pass tests and complete quests to help your group win the day, then take what you’ve learned (and earned) on to the next campaign. Gain XP and level up to earn your all-important Cape!

RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg - The Core Game

The standalone core game is for 1-5 players and is required to play the expansions. It contains all the bits and pieces you need to play, alongside content for four replayable campaigns – Vampyre Slayer, Demon Slayer, Fire Slayer and Dragon Slayer, which combine to form one epic adventure.

Play through each of the 150-210 minute campaigns in one session or break them down into shorter play sessions.

What’s the story?

Gielinor teeters on the brink of disaster! In Misthalin, Count Draynor is out for blood... literally! Meanwhile, dark wizards hatch a secret plot to summon an ancient demon that can only be banished by a legendary sword. Dangerous fire cultists run amok, sowing discord and destruction. And all the while, the shadow of Elvarg looms ever larger over the kingdoms; an imminent threat to burn it all down…

What's in the box?

14 miniatures – five entry level player pieces, five levelled up player pieces and four bosses: Count Draynor, Delrith, TzTok-Jad and Elvarg!

One fast-travel map game board, four campaign boards, one mini-boss board, four dice, 20 character sheets, 450+ tokens, 350+ cards, and one Rulebook.

Deluxe Edition

This exclusive Deluxe Edition takes your adventures in Gielinor to the next level!

Explore on a deluxe neoprene map. Test your skills with limited edition dice. Face your toughest foes on double-sided neoprene versions of each boss battleground. Level-up your resource gathering with deluxe wooden tokens. Do it all with a spring in your step — and a jingle in your pocket — with a bounty of metal ‘gold pieces’!

One neoprene game mat, four double-sided neoprene boss battlegrounds, four limited edition D10 dice, 90+ wooden tokens, and 18 metal coins.

Culinaromancer Expansion

What’s the story?

This expansion’s boss, the nefarious Culinaromancer, has a trick up his sleeve – he can move around the main map and turn up the heat on your adventures with deadly food golems. This ghoulish gourmand has been stalking the kingdoms, imprisoning NPCs with his delicious – but dangerous – dishes. You’ll need to collect the special ingredients and cook your way to safety!

Encounter the iconic Noob NPC, put your Cooking skills to the test, and become a truly ‘seasoned’ ‘Scaper in this epic campaign.

What’s in the Box?

Two beautifully sculpted miniatures (Culinaromancer and Noob), one boss fight board, 60+ cards, and one Rulebook.

It’s packed with new side quests, vault cards, and events, plus new items to discover, craft, and equip on your path to victory.

What’s the story?

In the heart of the Wilderness lies the lair of the King Black Dragon.

Still, you may want to say a Prayer before taking this quest on…

With whispers carried on desert winds, you may feel the truth has… well, deserted you.

Meanwhile, rumours buzz of a kalphite hive beyond the Shantay Pass, dangerously close to the city…

Kickstarter and Steamforged Games: Exclusive Bundles and Global Availability

RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game

If you’re looking for an even bigger adventure, then the RuneScape Kingdoms Roleplaying Game is for you! This TTRPG (that’s Tabletop Roleplaying Game, for the uninitiated) is separate from the Board Game and played in a totally different way.  

All you need to play is a core book that gives you the rules of the world you’ll be exploring, a pen, some paper, and some dice. You’ll also need a Game Master to run the game (perhaps that could be you!) and a group of friends to form an adventuring party. You can even play solo!

What's in the book?

RuneScape Kingdoms: The Roleplaying Game is a fully illustrated, hardback book that contains everything you need to create immersive fantasy roleplaying campaigns set in the world of Gielinor, and send your characters on adventures inspired by RuneScape and Old School RuneScape.

It’s a core book, which means it includes a complete roleplaying system. It’s designed to be easy to learn, even if you’re new to roleplaying games. This system is unique to Gielinor, developed by Steamforged to really capture the essence of playing RuneScape and Old School RuneScape on the tabletop.
