Cephalofair announces Gloomhaven RPG system

January 12, 2023 - 4:32pm

At PAX Unplugged 2022, Cephalofair revealed the next big Gloomhaven project: a tabletop roleplaying game within the award winning universe. The planned sourcebook will give your GM, or “Gloom Master”, all the tools and worldbuilding elements they need to tell infinite stories in the world of Gloomhaven by designer Isaac Childres. Even more exciting, the RPG will feature gameplay and combat using cards just like the board game, while also offering support for out-of-the-box solutions. Players can combine any class from Gloomhaven, Frosthaven, and Jaws of the Lion with any ancestry. You wanna be a Vermling Brute? Valrath Necromancer? All doable. The RPG will be cross-compatible with the board games, which will serve as an adventure-building tool kit; after all, Gloomhaven players already own numerous terrain tiles, miniatures, item types, and tokens, perfect for creating their own adventures.

And of course, this RPG announcement adds even more value to Cephalofair’s announced Miniatures of Gloomhaven campaign, which will offer over 500 miniatures for every enemy, boss, and summon in the game. The Gloomhaven RPG, Miniatures of Gloomhaven, and a second printing of Frosthaven will be coming to Backerkit in April 2023.
