The Witcher Tabletop Roleplaying Game Debuting at GenCon Next Month

The Witcher's tabletop game is coming very soon!

The Witcher is getting its own tabletop roleplaying game in the near future. The game has been developed by R. Talsorian Games, the company founded by Cyberpunk 2020 creator Mike Pondsmith. The company has been a longtime developer of similar tabletop RPGs and now it has turned its expertise towards The Witcher.

A preview of the book.

The Witcher Tabletop Roleplaying Game will be debuting at GenCon 2018 on August 2-5, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Players can pick up the game at the R. Talsorian booth, though the developer warns that quantities will be limited.

"We are working with the printer to ensure the R. Talsorian booth at GenCon will be stocked with copies of The Witcher. Quantities will be limited, though, so we recommend not waiting until Sunday to pick one up! You will find the R. Talsorian booth (#1752) at the back of the Exhibit Hall, just in front of the Exhibitor Service Center," said the company in its announcement.

Players who can't make it to GenCon can pick up the digital version of The Witcher TRPG over at DriveThruRPG. The digital version, released in PDF, isn't currently available, but it will be launching on the storefront during or just after GenCon.

The Witcher TRPG came from Pondsmith's dealings with CD Projekt Red over the Cyberpunk property. Pondsmith had been working with the studio since 2012 and somewhere along the line, CD Projekt Red wondered if The Witcher could make the transition to tabletop. Cody Pondsmith, Mike's son, developed the game and has been chronicling his thoughts behind that development over on the R. Talsorian Games blog.
