UK board game publisher Steamforged Games is working with UK video game developer Jagex to bring the 21-year-old MMORG RuneScape to tabletops in two different forms: a board game and a "tabletop roleplaying game (TTRPG) core book inspired by RuneScape's rich fantasy world of Gielinor".

As is typical for anything involving video games, I know nothing about RuneScape, so let me quote from the press release:
Quote:
Both games are set to delight RuneScape and Old School RuneScape's player communities with fresh-but-faithful adaptations of classic quests and characters that weave iconic elements of the games into exciting tactile experiences reimagined for tabletop gaming.

The games will draw on adventures, characters, and locations from across RuneScape's rich 21-year long history, with the board game taking 1-5 players on quest-based campaigns through Gielinor. They will craft and upgrade equipment, upskill their characters, cook special recipes, engage with NPCs, and test their skills while exploring different regions of the world, with a variety of enticing side quests to distract and entertain them on the way.

The TTRPG will consist of a lavishly illustrated, hardback core book containing rules for players to run a RuneScape tabletop roleplaying game in which they can build their own characters, explore Gielinor, and create unique and exciting quests. The TTRPG core book is also fully compatible with the fifth edition ruleset of the world's favourite roleplaying tabletop game.
Steamforged Games notes that both games are scheduled to debut in 2022, with the TTRPG going straight to retail and the board game undergoing crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
