Modiphius Secure the Rights to Produce Tabletop Games for Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Series

“It is said that the gods play games with the lives of men. But what games, and why, and the identities of the actual pawns, and what the game is, and what the rules are – who knows?
Best not to speculate.  

 Thunder rolled…
It rolled a six.” — Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

“We are thrilled to announce that we have secured the rights to produce tabletop games for Terry Pratchett’s beloved and internationally bestselling Discworld series. With the blessing of the late Sir Terry’s estate we’ve got exciting plans to publish tabletop games that honour the humour and satire of the darkly entertaining series.

The first Discworld game to be released will be a tabletop roleplaying game around the city of Ankh-Morpork and the wider Disc, launching as a Kickstarter in late 2024. Sign up here to be among the first to hear about the launch of the Kickstarter and other Discworld updates!

The Pratchett Estate says, “Terry had a lifelong affection with roleplaying games and it’s an entirely logical path along which you can follow his career from Dungeon Master to him becoming one of our most celebrated and beloved fantasy authors of all time. We are delighted to be partnering with Modiphius. We love their work and we love their ethos and we entirely trust them to get things right.”

As huge fans of the series, we want to make sure that we do Discworld justice. That’s why we are looking to find out more about other Discworld fans. We’ve created a survey here, that will only take a few minutes to complete. Tell us about your gaming habits (if any), your love of Discworld, and a few other tidbits about you so that we can tailor our games for those who love the world the most.

Your answers will be kept confidential and will not be shared with any third parties. Even better, if you are happy to include your email at the end of the survey, you will be entered into a prize draw to win one of ten $100 vouchers to spend on the Modiphius store!

Thank you in advance for your input which will help make these games the best they can be, and remember to sign up for news and updates on the Discworld RPG and other projects!
