The Magister

The Magister is a murder-mystery RPG. Roam the kingdom to investigate suspects and use complex dialog choices to defeat them psychologically. But, when things get out of hand, be prepared to fight on a turn-based tactical grid. The deck you build determines your next actions.


YOU are a MAGISTER, an agent assigned to enforce the will of the Emperor and the rule of law in the far-flung provinces of the Empire. Recently dispatched to the remote rural village of Silverhurst, you must investigate the grim demise of a fellow Magister. You have 14 days to solve the case.
Become absorbed in this murder-mystery RPG as you utilise expertly honed skills to piece together clues and bring the perpetrator to justice. Featuring an innovative card-based encounters system, you can fight with weapons and magic or settle disputes peacefully using ‘Tactical Diplomacy’.
The Magister is designed for repeat playthroughs. With uniquely generated events, multiple ways to solve problems, different Magister types to choose from, and a wide variety of starting decks to master and additional cards to acquire, every investigation offers a new experience.
