Green Ronin Publishing has been licensed to produce a tabletop roleplaying game based on James S.A. Corey’s science fiction novels that have been already adapted for Hugo-winning television as The Expanse on Syfy.

The series began life as a homebrew RPG, according to Ty Franck, one of the authors, along with Daniel Abraham, behind the Corey pen name. “To have Green Ronin taking the universe of The Expanse back to its roots is very exciting,” he said in a press release. “I’ve loved their game adaptations of other literary works, and I couldn’t be happier to be partnering with them on this project.” 

“I came to the story first as a RPG, and clearly I had a great time with it,” Abraham said. “I’m delighted to have other gamers get the chance to make their own stories in this setting.” 

“The Expanse is the most exciting thing to happen in science fiction in the last decade,” said Green Ronin President Chris Pramas. “It’s not just that they are cracking good stories — which of course, they are — but like all of the best science fiction they reflect the issues of today. We could not be more delighted to bring the Expanse to roleplaying games.” 

The Expanse RPG’s release is about a year away, with a crowdfunding campaign planned between now and then. Green Ronin’s “Adventure Game Engine,” which powers its Blue Rose, Fantasy AGE and Modern AGE systems, will be the basis for the game’s mechanics.
