Free League Publishing’s Blade Runner The Roleplaying Game will soon see two new books available. The Fiery Angels deluxe case file module, which will be available later this year, and the Replicant Rebellion sourcebook, which is slated for release in 2024.
Fiery Angels follows the same deluxe format and packaging as the award-winning Case File #01: Electric Dreams, which is included in the Blade Runner RPG Starter Set. Case File #02: Fiery Angels is a boxed set featuring a new thrilling investigative scenario and a host of in-world handouts, photos, maps and more.
This new investigation starts off with the Blade Runners assigned to question a suspect arrested while trying to infiltrate the Wallace Corporation Memory Vaults. The case leads the team down a perilous path that explores the boundaries of Replicant technology and its consequences. The player characters need to contend with an array of physical, mental, and moral challenges.Free League Publishing
Though Fiery Angels is a stand-alone adventure, players who experienced Case File 01: Electric Dreams will recognize a continuation of story elements. This new boxed Case File module includes:
- An illustrated and detailed scenario book with locations, characters, events, and leads.
- A manila envelope containing about 20 handouts, including a variety of in-world artifacts and Esper photos.
- Six full-color, double-sided maps.
Fiery Angels will soon be available for pre-order here. It is expected to release by the end of 2023 and retail for $34.99.
Replicant Rebellion expands the scope of the core game, allowing players to join the ranks of the Replicant underground in the Los Angeles of 2037. The characters are an independent cell loosely organized under Freysa Sadeghpour’s leadership, and undertake a variety of operations – from helping fugitive Nexus-8 Replicants elude capture to sabotaging installations of the Replicant industry. This beautifully illustrated hardback sourcebook will include:
- An overview of the history and organization of the Replicant underground, charting its presence throughout the Blade Runner timeline.
- Detailed guidelines on how to play a Replicant underground campaign, including several new player character archetypes.
- Half a dozen complete Operations (i.e., complete adventures) to play for a cell in the Replicant underground.
It is expected to release in 2024 and retail for $49.99.
This news comes on the heels of the announcement that Blade Runner The Roleplaying Game has been shortlisted for two ENNIE awards. The game was previously shortlisted for Best RPG at the Origins Awards, and won both the Peoples Choice and Judges Choice for Best Adventure at the UK Games Expo Awards this year.
