The world of Mutant: Year Zero continues to grow. Free League Publishing has another expansion for its tabletop RPG in the works, and it’s about to launch the crowdfunding campaign.
MUTANT: ELYSIUM tells the story of the final survivors of the end of the world. In the huge underground enclave Elysium I, four powerful Houses struggle for supremacy, oblivious to the looming threat that could bring humanity’s last bastion on Earth to its final downfall.
We’re told that while Mutant Elysium is intended as an expansion for Mutant: Year Zero, it can be played by itself as a standalone game. It will mark the third Mutant expansion, and the fourth Mutant game if they’re counted separately. Sci-fi artists Simon Stålenhag and Reine Rosenberg will once again handle the illustrations.
We will have more info for you next week when the Mutant: Elysium campaign launches on Kickstarter. In the meantime, here are some critics’ quotes about Mutant that Free League wanted to share….

“This RPG is f***ing great and I recommend it to new gamers and veterans alike. Giving this game anything but the highest grade would be insane.” -The Kryokinesi gaming blog
“The rules support and create campaign play. Intrigues start, threats arise, opportunities and challenges appear, without the GM having to make it all up.” – The Fenix gaming magazine
Tales From The Loop was such a success for Free League, they’re doing it again, only this time slightly differently. The Tales From The Loop Board Game will be set in the same world as the roleplaying game, only with different rules and more physical props. you and your friends
We’ve entered the home stretch for How To RPG With Your Cat, a quirky new tabletop experience from Oddfish Games that allows your pet to become part of the game. With less than 48 hours to go, Oddfish has so far raised $11,000 (out of a initial goal of $3000).
Last December we alerted our readers to the existence of a Kickstarter meant to fund three card games based on the art of Steven Rhodes. We were almost too late to report on them as the campaign was on its last day. But if we didn’t manage to inform you
We write about tabletop game maker Free League a lot around these parts, and based on what they just announced, we don’t expect to stop anytime soon. They’ve acquired the Blade Runner license, which is basically printing money even if the game is bad (but that probably won’t be the
