Cubicle 7 is hard at work on the Age of Sigmar Roleplaying Game, come take a look at what’s coming out for Soulbound this year!

Get ready for Soulbound, the Age of Sigmar RPG that takes players to the high-fantasy worlds of the Mortal Realms, where they’ll play as any of a variety of humans, duardin, aelves, and more as you create a group of Soulbound–an adventuring party with a mythic bond to one another. With the game launching this year, the previews are rolling in. So let’s take a look at what we can expect to see out on Launch Day and beyond.

First up, the Core Book, which is expected to launch digitally later this quarter, this is the book with everything you need to play the game including heroes, monsters, and more.

As Sigmar’s Storm broke upon the hordes of Chaos, a flicker of hope was rekindled in the people of the Mortal Realms. The seeds of civilisation were planted and grew into new bastions of Order, and for a moment it almost seemed the endless tide of darkness could be held back. But then came the Necroquake, as the undead legions of Nagash rose up to shatter the cities of Sigmar. Hope dwindles and once more darkness threatens to engulf the Mortal Realms… 

Explore the Mortal Realms in the first ever tabletop roleplaying game set in the world of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

You are Soulbound: heroes chosen by the gods themselves to stand against the horrors that plague the Mortal Realms and tasked with preventing a new age of Chaos and Death. Forge your group from some of the most powerful heroes in the realms and face down roving bands of cannibals, legions of undead, and hordes of daemons in a desperate struggle for survival.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soulbound contains everything you need to roleplay perilous adventures in the epic-fantasy setting of the Mortal Realms.

Next up, in Q2 2020 is the Soulbound Starter Set. If you wantt o jump right into the game and start playing with a pregenerated adventure geared at teaching new players the core of the game, this is the box for you. It comes with an adventure, a city gazetteer, 5 pre-generated characters, rules reference sheets, and all the dice and tokens you’ll need to get this specific adventure going.

Begin your adventures in the Mortal Realms with the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soulbound Starter Set! Journey to the newly reclaimed city of Brightspear in Aqshy, and ally with the Celestial Warbringers of the Stormcast Eternals to stop the forces of Chaos from wiping out the city entirely.

The introductory adventure takes you beneath Brightspear and teaches the game rules as you uncover the secrets of the ancient citadel below.

The Brightspear City Guide details the city of Brightspear and its surrounding areas, and includes dozens of locations, NPCs, rumours, and adventure seeds for players and Gamemasters to expand their Soulbound games.

Around the same time, we’ll also see the Soulbound Gamemaster’s Screen, which expands the cover art, and has rules references and NPC names and rumors to get you ready to go. But you’ll not just get the GM Screen–you’ll also get a 32 page booklet with adventures set in the Cities of Sigmar–at five adventures per city, that’s 25 adventures in a single book.
