Baladins – Multiplayer Tabletop RPG Adventures Reimagined

Buckle up, adventurers, for Baladins promises a fantastical journey like no other. This ambitious narrative-driven multiplayer experience, slated for release in 2024, blends the thrill of RPGs with the camaraderie of tabletop games, weaving an immersive tapestry where cooperation and storytelling reign supreme. Developed by Seed by Seed and published by Armor Games Studios, Baladins brings fresh reimaginings to the classic tabletop genre.

In Baladins you and up to three of your friends are able to embark on a whimsical roleplaying journey. Baladins are legendary heroes who wander from town-to-town to fulfil their sacred quest: entertaining the masses! It’s a difficult task, but one the Baladins take in stride. From helping those in need to throwing parties, they bring surprises with them wherever their travels take them. All that matters to them is bringing joy to the people who inhabit the bright and lively world of Gatherac.


Where Heroes Gather and Tales Unfold

Baladins transports you to a vibrant world brimming with mystery and magic. You and up to three companions take on the roles of intrepid heroes, each endowed with unique abilities and motivations. Embark on thrilling quests, unravelling the secrets of the world and forging your own legends through collaborative storytelling. Every playthrough promises a fresh adventure, as branching narratives and emergent gameplay ensure no two journeys are the same.

Inspired by tabletop roleplaying campaigns, Baladins is a choose-your-own-story game for players of all ages and experience levels. Embark on your quest as one of the Baladins: the imaginative Cook, the crafty Luxomancer, the strapping Dancer, or the expressive Pyro. United by their passion for happiness, each Baladin brings their own unique skills to the table and can hone their talents further throughout the adventure by making choices and collecting items.

Roll the dice and see where your adventures take you. Your decisions are not inherently good or bad – just creative approaches that can lead to interesting outcomes!


A Symphony of Strategy and Synergy

Prepare to strategize like never before. Each hero in Baladins boasts distinct strengths and weaknesses, demanding teamwork and coordination to overcome daunting challenges. Master the ebb and flow of combat, utilizing your hero’s skills to complement your allies and unleash devastating combos upon your foes. Whether you prefer the tanky defence of a stalwart warrior, the stealthy precision of a cunning rogue, or the arcane mastery of a potent spellcaster, Baladins offers a playstyle to captivate your inner tactician.

Travel the strange lands of Gatherac and unravel all its secrets and legends with turn-based exploration. Everybody knows a good myth is based on some truth, and myths may be a lot closer than you think.


Beyond the Battlefield: Building Your Character’s Legacy

But Baladins is far more than just combat. Between thrilling encounters, you’ll delve into the lives of your heroes, shaping their personalities and forging bonds with your companions. Make tough choices that ripple through the narrative, impacting not only your own story but also the experiences of your fellow adventurers. Each playthrough becomes a collaborative tapestry, woven with laughter, heartbreak, and triumphs shared amongst friends.
