There's Huntsmen work, and then there's work that only Huntsmen can stomach. In Mistral, you'll get both kinds. Full of thieves and assassins, this is a region where the people can be just as, if not more, dangerous than the Grimm. Just make sure you don't stick up your nose too far where it doesn't belong...

Cast

TGC Pyke Rite.png

Pyke Rite is a "professional" Huntsman and a relatively recent graduate of Haven Academy. Armed with his drill cannon, and a... unique Semblance, Pyke is ready to test his fate in the world of Remnant.[4]

TGC Arrastra Skye.png

Arrastra Skye is slow to trust and quick to spring into action, thanks in part to her Faunus talent. She doesn't often work with others, but they'd better follow her lead if she graces them with her presence.[5]

TGC Asher Mora.png

A loner with a penchant for getting himself into trouble, Asher Mora is what some would call rough around the edges. A graduate of Shade Academy, Asher has had to fight for almost everything in life... and he's not above fighting dirty.[6]

TGC Fenix Nemean.png

Fenix Nemean is a lion Faunus with a foolhardy sense of courage and a deep-running sense of honor. Don't test how deep his good graces run, however -- he's a bit different when he's angry.[7]

Game Details

The series uses TaleSpire to play the RPG virtually.[9]

The game is played with custom "homebrew" D&D rules that make the game feel and play more like RWBY and fit into the world of Remnant. They were created by Cody Hawkins.[10]

The game will be set in the Kingdom of Mistral, exploring its criminal underworld.[11]

The goal is to do something that can fit alongside the show canonically, however, given the series will be played through Dungeons & Dragons, it is not locked in yet.[12] That said, worldbuilding details will be canon.[13]

Season 1 is set two years before the events of RWBY.[14]

Season 2 is set two weeks after Season 1.[15] It also reveals more about Asher Mora's past.

Art

The title art of RWBY: The Grimm Campaign was designed by Kate Daigler.[16]

Visual elements will likely be provided by Scott Zenteno, who also provided promotional images for the series.[17]

Character arts and designs were done by Susie Combs[18] and Nick Swift.[19]

While Team SAFR were originally the only characters shown with art during the first season, multiple characters gained their own unique artwork during the second season like Team SMMK, Lemon and Vermillion Raddock.

Trivia

  • In the character sheets for the game, Gravity Dust is mistakenly marked as Metal Dust.[24]
  • In Heists and Holidays!, Eddy stated that the new leader of the Hana Guild was Lemon. However, the next episode revealed that this was a mistake due to Vermillion Raddock being the actual new leader of the Hana Guild.
