Contents of the BLADE RUNNER RPG Starter Set. Please note that the image above includes stretch goals. The components shown are not final.
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. Tomas Härenstam, Free League co-founder and lead game designer of the ALIEN RPG, fills the same role for the BLADE RUNNER RPG. Original artwork comes from lead ALIEN RPG artist Martin Grip, with Joe LeFavi of Genuine Entertainment is serving as the lead setting writer, brand manager, and producer on the game series.
