Renegade Game Studios’ Power Rangers Roleplaying Game
Power Rangers fans have been waiting for an RPG set in the world of GI Joe, Transformers, or Power Rangers for decades. Renegade Game Studios’ Power Rangers RPG is the answer to this fan demand. The game will be available at Renegade Con Special Edition in 2021. Until then, download a free PDF download to get started.
While the new RPG from Power Rangers creator Renegade Game Studios is still in early stages of development, there are a few things to look for in the game. First and foremost, you will want to choose an Origin. These are similar to Races in other RPGs, and describe your character’s personality before they became a Ranger. Characters with an Origin start off with certain traits and benefits that will help them during their journey as a Ranger.
In addition to character creation, Power Rangers has some new accessories. Those accessories will include the new Adventure Book, the Game Character Journal, and the Glutton for Punishment accessory pack. You can also purchase the Power Rangers themselves. All four of these new accessories will be available in Q2 2022. For more information, visit the official Renegade Game Studios site.
While character death is a common result of games, in Power Rangers RPG, the designers have avoided having heroes die at the hands of the bad guys. The game uses the Essence20 system, which relies on dice to represent power and skill levels. In this free PDF download, you can play as one of the six original Power Rangers and experience a variety of gameplay scenarios.
While the game is a solid choice for new players, it has a few flaws. For one, it’s based on the Essence20 RPG system, which doesn’t lend itself well to Power Rangers, or to powerhouses of the genre. However, it does have some unique qualities, including a character progression system that combines the minutia of D&D Fifth Edition with the success-by-degrees storytelling approach of Mutants and Masterminds. Character progression is done through rolling higher dice, and higher stats lead to critical successes and overkilled defenses.
Other elements of the game include sensitivity reviews. While the publisher of Renegade Game Studios does develop outside of the Power Rangers universe, the company still makes use of the same core story setting for the game. It’s also clear that Renegade Game Studios is committed to expanding their TTRPG offerings. In addition to free PDF downloads, the company also plans to continue developing their IP.
The Zordon Era Core Rulebook is focused on the original power rangers of the Zordon era and doesn’t reflect the new roles of the Power Rangers in season two. Blue is described as smart, while Green is a lone wolf. While they all wear orange costumes, they don’t have the same skills. The book does focus on character builds, though.
There are several ways to customize your character. If you’re a power ranger, you’ll have the option to choose between various abilities, including rangers and dinosaurs. This allows you to create an individualized Power Ranger who can take on legendary villains and foil their plans. In addition to the free PDF download, you can also pre-order a physical copy of the game.
If you’re a new player to the game, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to get started. First, you’ll be given a free PDF download of the game’s character build guide. This compendium provides an overview of all the available character builds. If you have any questions, you can visit the Renegade Game Studios website.
