You’re dragged into a treacherous fantasy world made from your own fears, doubts and desires. There’s only one way to escape - but with limitless adventure within your grasp, would you even want to?

In DIE: The Roleplaying Game, you play a group of authentically flawed people from the real world who gather together to play a game and are trapped in a magical realm. What are they prepared to sacrifice to escape? What are they prepared to sacrifice to stay?

Built by Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans, the creative duo behind the comic of the same name, this 408 page book gives you all the tools you need to build a bespoke world out of the obsessions and dreams of your friends.  

Rowan, Rook and Decard have updated, refined and polished the manuscript with some of the best editors and mechanics designers in the business to make DIE the best game it could be.

Five unique character classes drawn from the comic give players access to powers beyond their imagining - bargaining with gods, augmenting their bodies with strange technologies, bending the laws of chance, twisting minds with a word, or channelling their deepest emotions into magical violence. The gamesmaster isn’t left out; they get their very own class, the Master, who manipulates the rules of the game that the players are trapped in.

DIE: The RPG has everything you need to play or run the game aside from a handful of dice, some friends, and a burning desire to get lost in a hell of your own creation.

Versatile and powerful game that foregrounds your character's (actually Persona's) emotional journeys. A mix of asymmetrical and basic mechanics makes this both simple and capable of complexity. 5 stars, without question.


Aww, you removed the 'Jumanji for goths' tagline..
