The New Judge Dredd RPG is Comics-Inspired Butt-Kicking

The Worlds of 2000 AD are coming to your table top! The grizzled Judge Dredd is the most recognizable icon “Britain’s longest running and most celebrated anthology comic,” but plenty of other heroes, villains, and anti-heroes are set to join the mighty Judges.

This new adventure RPG is powered by the What’s Old Is New (“WOIN”) system by EN Publishing; a system neatly designed to allow easy transitions between worlds with vastly different levels of technology. The fantasy worlds of Sláine and Nemesis the Warlock can seamlessly transition to the dystopian future of Judge Dredd or the steampunk world of Stickleback.

The first book being published in the 2000 AD role-playing line is titled “Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Tabletop Adventure Game,” and is a full-color RPG book with support for playing Judges, civilians, and perps alike in the grimy underbelly of Mega-City One.

2000ad_rpg_hcFollowing the release of the core rules, there are plans to release adventures based on classic Dredd storylines—starting with The Robot Wars. Nick Robinson, lead developer for the Dredd project, says, “The idea is to move chronologically through the classic story arcs in the 2000 AD Progs [comic issues] providing adventures for not only Judges, but for those players who may wish to explore the Dredd universe from a different perspective – that of a Civilian or even a Perp. Each book will contain a core adventure, mini-adventures based upon the other story arcs at the time, as well as expanded setting and rules information.”

A team of talented authors is working to bring the world of Dredd and co. to life. Darren Pearce (Doctor Who; Lone Wolf) is working on the core rulebook alongside Russ Morrissey and Nick Robinson, with additional content from Robert Schwalb (Dungeons & Dragons; Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay), and Andrew Peregrine (Doctor Who; Firefly; Buffy The Vampire Slayer) is writing The Robot Wars.

The release date of “Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Tabletop Adventure Game” is TBA 2017. For more information, check out the announcement thread on EN World. You can learn more about the many different worlds in this RPG on the Worlds of 2000 AD web page.
