From digital to physical
Promethium Books, a publisher of the Curesbrand Chronicles, Epic Age, and Advent Horizon tabletop role-playing games, today announced a partnership with Nihon Falcom, the developer of the popular Ys and The Legend of Heroes (also known as Trails) video game series, to produce two original tabletop RPG games based on the two franchises.
The first game, Ys: Age of Heroes, will be a traditional fantasy TTRPG set in the world of Ys, where players can take on the role of heroes following the footsteps of Adol Christin and his friends, exploring the dangerous lands of Ys while battling the forces of evil.
The second game, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Destiny, will be a more modern TTRPG where players face the complex political backdrop of the continent of Zemuria, investigating mysteries and fighting the forces of corruption.
The two games will be designed for experienced tabletop role-playing gamers and newcomers alike using the Promethium System ruleset. Each will feature a rich and detailed world outline, a variety of character backgrounds and classes, and a deep and engaging combat system.
“We are excited to partner with Nihon Falcom to bring these two beloved franchises to the tabletop market.” said Promethium Books Creative Director Ashram Kain. “The Ys and Trails games are some of the most popular and critically acclaimed JRPGs of all time. We are confident that our tabletop games will be a hit with existing fans and draw new fans to the series.”
“We are happy to be working with Promethium Books on these two projects,” said Nihon Falcom President Toshihiro Kondo. “We believe that Promethium Books is the perfect partner to bring the worlds of Ys and Trails to the tabletop, and we are excited to see the wonderful adventures our fans create.”
Ys: Age of Heroes, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Destiny, are scheduled to be released in 2024.
