Wyrd Games Releases Through the Breach RPG
Wyrd Games, publishers of Malifaux, have announced that they have released their Through the Breach RPG, which was the subject of a successful Kickstarter campaign in early 2013. Through the Breach is a tabletop RPG set in Wyrd Games’ aforementioned Malifaux tabletop strategy game universe. If you’re not familiar with Malifaux it is a world that, according to Wyrd Games, mixes gothic, steampunk and Victorian horror into a single setting (they also publish a tactical game about puppets fighting in the same universe, so that’s a thing). According to the release, Through the Breach is an RPG where the gamemaster (here called the Fatemaster) moves the players “along towards the moment when they must choose between their fortune and their soul.” Through the Breach is a card-driven RPG, with the players sharing a Fate Deck, which is used to resolve actions during the game, and each having their own Twist Deck. I’m always rather drawn to the art of Wyrd Games’ products, and what has been posted from Through the Breach is no different. Just sharp looking stuff. In any case, they have released the Fated Almanac (the core book) for $40, the Fatemasters Guide (the GM book) for $40 and the Fatemasters Kit (GM screen) for $28. Since it is announced as being released, I expect that Through the Breach should start showing up in stores (including Wyrd Games’ own web store) soon. I was able to locate it for sale through The War Store, with each of the core books costing $32.99 (plus shipping, obvs).
