Your footsteps slosh and splash, echoing on the stone walls of a cave under a cliché of a house, a ruined Victorian style. Your flashlight flickers. As you shake it, you feel something cold and damp slither up your leg. Oh great, you think as you pull out your B.P.R.D.-issued sidearm. Tentacles.
Here at Red Scar Publishing, we are excited to announce a fresh collaboration with Mantic Games for a new venture, Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game. Developed by ourselves and produced by Mantic, Hellboy: The RPG is set in Mike Mignola’s dark and exciting world, where you can now become an agent with B.P.R.D. You’ll find famous villains, legendary agents, fantastical settings and more to create your own adventures.
Hellboy in 5E
Powered by the world’s most popular RPG ruleset, Fifth Edition, Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game gives you the tools to step into the shoes of a B.P.R.D. agent, ready to face the forces of evil. You can become a field researcher skilled in the study of the occult, a hard-nosed B.P.R.D. security agent, a rookie with hidden supernatural powers, and more. The choice is yours.
