Ever feel like a robot in disguise? Now you can let out your inner Autobot through the newly announced Transformers RPG game from Renegade Studios. Create a Transformer character using the roles described in the book, pick your abilities and what to change into, and set off on your journey to stop the Decepticon menace.
Everything you need to play is in the Core Rulebook, but if you’re short on dice, Renegade will sell you some with the Transformers logos on them. The bag contains a full set of dice from a D2 coin up to two D20s, and Optimus’s head is printed on the side.
Complete rules for players and Game Masters focused on fun storytelling and epic combat
Character creation tools, weapons, equipment, vehicles, and villain dossiers
Combat and exploration information, details of secret bases and special equipment, and tools to get your campaign started
