The Electric State Roleplaying Game

Release: Q3 2024

Head out on a journey through America in an alternate 1997. The ruins of gigantic battle drones litter the countryside, heaped together with the discarded trash of a high-tech consumerist society in decline. A road trip on the verge of reality awaits. This is a game of exploration, but that which is explored is yourself and your friends, and what you are willing to do when the world collapses around you. 

The Electric State Roleplaying Game is based on the praised narrative art book The Electric State by acclaimed visual artist and author Simon Stålenhag, soon to be adapted into a major motion picture by the Russo brothers (Avengers: Endgame), starring Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) and Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy).

The Electric State Roleplaying Game is written by Nils Hintze (Tales From the Loop RPG, Vaesen - Nordic Horror Roleplaying, The Walking Dead Universe RPG) in collaboration with the Free League core team. The rules of the game are based on the Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as the ALIEN RPG, Blade Runner RPG, Tales From the Loop RPG, and The Walking Dead Universe RPG, but uniquely tailored for this new game.

The One Ring™ RPG: Moria™ – Through the Doors of Durin

The Lord of the Rings™ Roleplaying 5E: Moria – Shadow of Khazad-dûm™

Release: August 1

A thousand years ago, Durin's Bane arose and drove the Dwarves from their halls. The city fell into darkness. Perhaps the Halls of Durin lie empty once more; perhaps there are piles of treasure there, waiting to be claimed; and perhaps Mithril still glimmers in the mines under Caradhras...

Cross the threshold, adventurer, and delve deep, the epic campaign expansion Through the Doors of Durin delves into the depths of Khazad-dûm for the multiple award-winning second edition of The One Ring™ Roleplaying Game, based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. This compendium will also be created in a version for the 5E edition of The Lord of the Rings™ Roleplaying, under the title Moria – Shadow of Khazad-dûm™.

Dragonbane: Path of Glory

Release: Q4 2024

Coming to the legendary Dead Forest in search of treasure, glory and a solution to the ancient curse laying waste to the forest, the adventurers soon find themselves embroiled in an epic conflict reaching back to the very foundations of the world. The quest will take the adventurers through the depths of the forest, under the mountain, and into a strange new land where the fate of the world will be determined.

Path of Glory was the first major adventure campaign released for the original Swedish edition of the Dragonbane RPG (Drakar och Demoner), in three installments during 1985 and 1986: The Dead Forest, Gates of Power, and Heart of Darkness. This new edition, reimagined and updated by Free League and the original author Roger Undhagen, collects the trilogy in a single volume.

This full-color, hardback edition has completely new illustrations by David Brasgalla and new cover art by Johan Egerkrans. The rules are fully updated to the latest edition of Dragonbane, and the book includes a large, double-sided map painted by Francesca Baerald.
