Metahumans & Manticores – A Tabletop RPG by Blake Northcott, Arrives in March 2015

Superhero RPG ‘Metahumans & Manticores’ Is Like a Marvel vs. DC Battle Royale, Designed by a Comic Book Dream Team

Metahumans & Manticores

In March 2015, Blake Northcott, author of the best selling Arena Mode Saga series is releasing a much anticipated tabletop RPG based on her novels.

Metahumans & Manticores is set in “a dystopian future, where superhumans compete in a dangerous combat sporting event” and features artwork from many big names in the comics industry. Dave Johnson, Barry Kitson, Steve McNiven, and Natasha Allegri are just some of the many artists who grace the approximately 90-page core book.

Having been an on-and-off tabletop RPG gamer for three decades, I’m looking forward to the arrival of Metahumans & Manticores by Blake Northcott! The premise sounds awesome and, if executed well, it can solidly establish itself as a great RPG in it’s genre!

When shock-induced visions drive a detective specializing in the paranormal to a small town in South Dakota, he finds himself up against a flesh-hungry bog-man, their mutual ex-girlfriend (did we mention she’s a werewolf?), and a demon that’s stolen his arsenal of psychedelics. Then things start to get weird. We live in strange times. They call for strange ways!

“GOLD, GUTS AND GROG,” Part One

Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all gods’ creatures for profit.

It’s also a darkly comedic fantasy series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Hobbit Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!

Press Release

They’re not your typical band of high fantasy adventurers: Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric, and Betty the Hippy Hafling Thief. These women are the stars of the new Image Comics/Shadowline series RAT QUEENS, and they’re the deadliest grog-guzzling, death-dealing, battle-maidens-for-hire in Palisade.

In this new series by Kurtis J. Wiebe (PETER PANZERFAUST) and Roc Upchurch, starting in September, the Rat Queens are taking on the quest of a lifetime… or at least the quest that’s going to get them out of the latest jam they’ve found themselves in: clearing out some pesky goblins from a cave. But these aren’t just any goblins, and Hindman Cave isn’t just any cave.
