About this project

For our latest thrilling SIEGE Engine game, Troll Lord Games is proud to bring to life the terrifying, exciting and action-packed universe of Hound Comics’ Brimstone and the Borderhounds! Forget everything you know about the afterlife. Good guys don’t always go to Heaven and bad guys don’t always end up in Hell. The multiverse is one giant amalgam of giant corporations that humans know as afterlives. Heaven. Hell. Valhalla. The Happy Hunting Grounds. Some might look prettier than others, but in the end they’re all at war for the greatest commodity in the multiverse…Human souls.

It doesn’t matter much where you end up when you die; your lot in life is one of slave labor in one of these afterlives, doing whatever you might have done best (or didn’t know you were best at) in life. That could be constructing buildings or architecture. It could also be mopping up in a strip club. In Hell these human souls are called Weepers. Some win their freedom and earn a meager living in the dregs of society. Others try to escape, either to join terrorist groups known as Kittens, or to get out to another afterlife or even back to Earth. When that happens, crack teams of bounty hunters called Borderhounds are sent out to the Wastelands to bring them back in. The best of these teams is known as XiBalba and is led by Brimstone, the half-demon son of Hell’s Grand Architect.

Using the acclaimed and easy-to-learn SIEGE engine mechanic, the Brimstone and the Borderhounds RPG lets you play as Brimstone and his allies, as a new team of Borderhounds hunting down escaped Weepers and battling corporate espionage from other afterlives (or engaging in a little of your own), or play as a psychic, mystic, occult investigator or Earth-bound hero, battling supernatural incursions from the other worlds as our planet becomes a battleground in the greatest corporate war the multiverse has ever seen. Wield Helltech weapons, call upon Forza Infernis (the powers of Hell) or draw forth alien magic and psychic energies. The sky (or the Pit, as it may be) is the limit when you play in the world of Brimstone and the Borderhounds!

Thanks to all who participated in the soft opening.  Andre Duchesne was the last one to get in.

Troll Lord Games and Hound Comics welcome you to an exciting new table top RPG:

Now you can collect Hell's Bounty!

GOALS

Brimstone and the Borderhounds needs to come out in full color. It's the only way to do the comic book and the amazing art in it real justice. If successful, you'll receive a FULL COLOR, HARDCOVER, 200+ page RPG book with all the stretch goals your level brings you. This book, once in print, will retail for $39.99!

What Do You Get for Your Pledge?

C&C's Brimstone and the Borderhounds will be a complete, standalone Role Playing Game using the tried and tested Siege Engine, crafted by veteran game designer Jason Vey, author of Amazing Adventures, Band of Zombies, Broken Gods, and contributing author to the Defending Earth the Unit Sourcebook for the Doctor Who RPG!.

Within Brimstone and the Borderhounds you will find:

  • A rules light system, the SIEGE ENGINE, that is tried and true, used in a host of Role Playing Games: Castles & Crusades, Amazing Adventures, StarSiege, Tainted Lands, and Harvesters! It takes about 15 minutes to learn to play, 15 more to make a character and your rolling!
  • Rules that allow for multiple player options. Play a Borderhound, an independent Bounty Hunter, a Human (choose between 10 classes), a demi-demon that combines the best (or worst) of both worlds.
  • Complete setting material that allows you to dive into the afterlife, including corporations, kittens, weepers, and all the other madness that comes with a currency of souls!
  • An introductory adventure that allows you to pick up and  play immediately.
  • Over 40 monsters ready and rearing to go!
  • Complete character stats and write-ups on Brimstone, Luscious, Dawg, The Architect, Billy and all the other colorful characters from the Borderhounds 'verse!
  • Eight types of demons and the five houses they occupy with all the special abilities that comes with each house!

Who IS Troll Lord Games & Why Should I Give them Money?

Unfamiliar with TLG? We've been in the table top game business for over 15 years, publishing a wide range of games and supplements. We are best know for our work with Gary Gygax, the father of the hobby, and Castles & Crusades the longest running attribute check system on the market today. But we've worked with Dungeons and Dragons, Kenzer & Co, Goodman Games, Necromancer Games and Frog God Games to name but a few. We've got the know how to make an easy to learn, fast paced, demon stomping, soul crushing RPG that will help you help Hell keep its entrants in check!

We've run over a dozen Kickstarters in the last few years and have fulfilled them all or are in the process of fulfilling them as you read this. There is little or no risk with TLG beyond that of a Zombie Apocalypse actually happening, which would be pretty darn cool!

Why is Hound Comics So Cool?

Brimstone and the Borderhounds is based on the comic of the same name published by the folks over at Hound Comics! Well I'm not sure if it's the Comic Books or the Barbecue Sauce, but either way, Brim and his crew have created one of the coolest comic books on the shelf today. So cool in fact that the one, the only STAN LEE, has given his thumbs up...Brim works with the Stan Lee Foundation to boot!

Who's Brim you ask? Brim's been doing this a long time and you can find him everywhere. Brim He's worked on numerous TV shows with credits in Sesame Street, Romper Room, WWF Superstars, The Ricki Lake Show, MTV's Total Request Live and BET's 106 & Park and is a major force in multiple charities...we can't list his resume here, its just too long, check it out for yourself Brimstone! If you want to catch up with Brim you can find him on TWITTER, presently having a Twitter War with Michael Rooker!

But for us here he is the creator and driving force behind the fantastic Brimstone and the Borderhounds, a comic that breaks the mold in originality and brings you a currency that only someone like Brim can!

Risks and challenges
