Get ready to become a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.) and begin investigating occult perils that threaten the world’s very existence. Your team will explore gothic locations, hunt clues, discover artefacts, and face off against terrifying foes.

  • An introduction to the world of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.
  • Comprehensive Origins and Roles that allow you to create your very own paranormal investigator.
  • The complete 5E ruleset, with some tweaks and changes to bring the system fully into Hellboy's world.
  • New mechanics for options such as Ingenuity and Doom, rites and rituals, and wierd science, all designed to capture the flavour and strange dynamics of the Mignolaverse.
  • Definitive advice for GMs on running games set within the Mignolaverse, including tips for creating paranormal locations and strange pocket dimensions.
  • A complete stand-alone adventure for up to six players that can also serve as a continuation of the scenario included in the free Hellboy: The RPG Quickstart.

Just wanted to know if there are any plans to make this available in print? I missed it at the Kickstarter and would love a physical copy.

FYI - the product description does not match the product listed for sale. This is a 96 page supplement, not the core book. Prospective buyers should make sure to check the full-size preview first.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
