During Pax Online, Gearbox announced the Tabletop RPG, Tiny Tina’s Bunkers ‘n’ Badasses. It will features Guncards and the deluxe version will have 10 miniature figures and badass dice. It began development in the Before times, and has been play tested in social distancing times.
The main product is the Tiny Tina’s Bunkers ‘n’ Badasses sourcebook, featuring over 200 pages of instructions, custom art, 200 hundred jokes (of which they admit only 20 will be funny), and three full adventure campaigns you can play directly from the book itself.
For the first time ever, you will be able to take on the role of Tiny Tina in Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep by playing as the Bunker master and running the adventure yourself. Will you make the same choices as Tina, or alter it in new and exciting ways to keep your friends on their toes? That choice is available to you because Bunkers & Badasses allows you to create your own adventures as well and you can easily adapt those tools into customizing the included adventures.
For beginners you can start with Marcus’ Quest for the Wizard Wand, providing a simple one-shot introduction quest for players and bunker masters to learn the rules before moving onto grander adventures. If however, you were wanting some more Tiny Tina inspired content, there is also Butt Stallion’s Hunny Heist which is a new campaign about “gettin smooches and blowin stuff up and talkin about feelings.”
You’ll also be able to create your own vault hunter using the Bunkers & Badasses character creation system, giving you the option of ten newly imagined Vault Hunter classes and skill trees from both Borderlands 1 and 2. Furthermore, there’s also a Badass mechanic that lets you use the badass dice from the Deluxe edition to presumably reward a high risk/high reward gamble. Presumably there’s also a way to do it without the weighted dice, perhaps using a mechanic like Dungeon and Dragons 5e’s advantage.
Tiny Tina’s Bunkers ‘n’ Badasses is available for preorder from Nerdvana Games, in both a sole sourcebook version for $59.99, and a deluxe version for $119.99, that is reduced to $99.99 through the end of september. Tiny Tina’s Bunkers ‘n’ Badasses will release in Q1 2021.
Writer in Mind, Gamer at Heart, I finish as many games as I can to give my impression in a useful way. A heart for moddable games and addicting mechanics so you’ll spot me playing those a lot.
