Through the Breach: A Malifaux Roleplaying Game

Through the Breach: A Malifaux Roleplaying Game

Well Yet again time is getting away from me and since my Camera has died I’m unable to get any new photos of all of the figures I’ve been working on.

That being said unless you have been living under a rock you would have seen that Wyrd have announced the Through the Breach Malifaux Roleplaying Game.

I’ve been waiting for this since I found Malifaux and I can’t wait to get it up and running when it comes out!

And yes I’ve decided that I’m a fanboy since I went in at the top level, with the wife’s permission, and can’t wait for the Wicked Doll of all things!

So if you haven’t seen it yet head over to Kickstarter to get in on it and read the description below.

Malifaux is a successful character-driven skirmish game, with a wide range of detailed miniatures and accessories. The stories of Lady Justice, Nicodem, Colette DuBois, and many other masters of Malifaux are told with furious battles on table tops across the globe. Some rise, some fall, none of these characters have left unscarred. Their fates have become legend.

Now it is time to determine your fate.

Through the Breach is a tabletop roleplaying game set in the world of Malifaux. Players take on the roles of various citizens, such as Gunfighters, Drudges, Dabblers, and Entertainers. Each of these characters is as unique as the players themselves. These are the Fated. As a Fated, you know your future, it has been told to you, as cryptic as the sparrow on a moonless night. It is your task to rush headlong into the arms of destiny, or to carve your own future.

One player takes on the role of the Fatemaster. It is his duty to craft the legends of the other players, to narrate the story of Malifaux in his own vision, and to move each Fated along towards the moment when they must choose between their fortune and their soul.

Through the Breach is a card-driven RPG, with actions resolved through the reveal of cards from a communal Fate Deck. Each player, however, has a Twist Deck of their own, and they can use these cards to push fate towards their own desires. The Fatemaster, however, relies on no such randomness. He is the lord of providence, after all. It is his task to weave a story, and if he dares to touch the Fate Deck… there are repercussions.

Rather than bury you under a pile of cloth maps and t-shirts, we’ve decided to take a new approach. We want to focus all of our production effort on giving you a few high-production value rewards that we hope you will treasure for years to come. Instead of swag destined for the closet, we want to create trophies with reserved places on your shelves.
