Steamforged Games Announces New Magic School Roleplaying Game ‘Adventures & Academia: First Class’ To Release In January

Tabletop game creator and publisher Steamforged Games are launching their new school themed roleplaying brand Adventures & Academia: First Class. You can expect to witness a Catfolk Rogue learning new potions, a Lionfolk Barbarian becoming prefect and an Owlfolk Wizard perfecting their spell casting.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the Grand Academy is opening its doors once again to welcome new students… Pre-order will go live on the 27th October 2022 for a January 31st release date.

These roleplaying miniatures are at beginners, or established Game Masters who are looking for a new world to impress with. It will be Steamforged’s second brand targeted at the family gaming market after Animal Adventures.
