April 25, 2018

Modiphious Entertainment has released the Book of Skelos for the Conan RPG.

The Book of Skelos delves into the deepest mysteries of sorcery in the Hyborian Age, dramatically expanding the rules for sorcery and all things magical for gamemaster and player characters alike.

Included within these pages are rules and guidelines on handling player character and non-player character sorcerers, the usages of sorcery in campaigns, a host of magic items, creatures of the Outer Dark, and new skills and techniques to bolster any sorcerer’s repertoire.

So, don your wards and charms, step inside your circle of protection, and read these accursed pages!

New sorcerous archetypes — the industrious Alchemist, cunning Charlatan, enlightened Sage, devoted Sorcerer, and the primitive Witch Doctor — for player characters to become, with new sorcerous backgrounds, educations, and natures.

New skills and techniques such as necromancy, mesmerism, mummery, herbalism, human sacrifi ce, and astrology, to equip your sorcerer player characters and foes alike with a wide range of techniques and tactics.

New spells and alchemical enchantments, from Artifice of Yag to Visions of Exalted Wisdom.

Artifacts such as the Heart of Ahriman and the Serpent Ring of Set, including a host of strange devices, ancient technologies, and weird scientific oddities from a forgotten era.

New types of exalted sorcery, like rituals and great workings such as Rend the Earth’s Bones and Opening the Gateway Between, to bring terror to the world!

Rules for creating life, spawning new horrors, and modifying existing monsters with all-new sorcerous qualities.

Expansive rules for creating and fostering sorcerous cabals, pitting them against one another, and using them to pursue goals both diabolical and deadly.

A history of sorcery spanning from the dawn of time through the Cataclysm, into the Hyborian Age. Thrill to tales of prehuman civilizations and their greatest secrets!

Developed with leading Conan scholars, this is the darkest sorcery of the Hyborian Age revealed at last, as Howard created it!

July 24th, 2016

Modiphius Entertainment is excited to announce the development of Star Trek Adventures, the first new official Star Trek role playing game to be produced in more than a decade.

The news comes as Star Trek fans worldwide celebrate Star Trek’s 50th anniversary in 2016.

Fans of the legendary Star Trek television series’ and films will not only boldly go to the final frontier, but they will shape the voyages and missions through the Star Trek Adventures living campaign playtest. Each player will experience the game differently based on the ship they are assigned to.

Star Trek Adventures will use the Modiphius 2d20 game system (Mutant Chronicles, Infinity, Conan, John Carter of Mars) designed by Jay Little (Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, X-Wing Miniatures Game). Modiphius is also sculpting an accompanying Star Trek miniature figure line, the first to be produced in 17 years. Resin and metal 32mm-scale hobby figures will feature classic Star Trek characters and crews, boarding parties and away teams. Geomorphic tile maps of burning Federation ships, mysterious colonies and embattled Klingon cruisers will set the scene for dramatic new voyages in the Final Frontier.

Under license by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek Adventures is slated for a Summer 2017 release and the playtest crews will be listed in the Star Trek Adventures book manifest

July 4th, 2016

Modiphious has released a new book for Mutant Chronicles RPG titled Luna & Freelancers.

At the heart of human civilisation since the Exodus, Luna City is the first human settlement beyond Earth, and the greatest city ever built by mankind. The city is a teeming metropolis, home to vast numbers of people, both employees of the megacorporations and those who exist between those grand organisations.  It is a melting pot of cultures, and a place where history and the modern age collide, and no citizen of Luna would wish to live anywhere else. It is also home to the Brotherhood and the Cartel, and the heart of the solar system’s political and economic landscape… yet it is also a hotbed of crime, corruption, and dark secrets.

  • History: Delve into the history of Luna in the days before, and during, the Fall and the First Dark Symmetry War
  • The People: Numerous NPCs and plot hooks to help expand your Mutant Chronicles campaign
  • The Law: Expanded character creation options to support Luna’s beleaguered police department
  • Beyond and Below: Venture into the blasted wasteland beyond the city’s walls, and into the caverns, tunnels, and undercity below.
  • The City: Explore the largest and grandest city in human history, discovering details and secrets never before revealed.

Dark Legions unleashed for Mutant Chronicles

Dark-Legion-768x997

May 31st, 2016

The Mutant Chronicles Dark Legion Campaign from Modiphious Entertainment is a continuation of the epic plot that began to unfold within the Dark Symmetry Campaign, although it can easily be  adapted as a stand alone adventure in this terrifying solar-system spanning campaign which is recommended for experienced players.                                 

For 1200 years the Apostles have plotted their return. They have festered at the far reaches of our solar system, drawn in new recruits  to their cause, and waited for the right signs to herald their re-emergence.

Events once again transpire on Nero that begin a race against time in search of the remnants of war, an interplanetary dash to recover ancient technology that can prevent the forces of the  Dark Legion gaining a superior edge during their second coming.

  • Massive Campaign: From Nero to Mars, the players will sample all that the mega corporations have to offer during an epic campaign that spans almost the entirety of the solar system.
  • Menacing Hazards: New denizens and creatures lurk within, whilst comprehensive rules cover everything from traversing Mercury’s inhospitable surface and scouring the sands of Mars, to battling beneath the oceans of Venus.
  • Secrets Revealed: Unearth forbidden lore of the enigmatic Ancients during the rush from planet to planet, knowledge that some in the Brotherhood would prefer to remain hidden.
  • Updated Pre-gens: All six characters have been revisited and updated to reflect some of the experiences they would have endured as part of the original Dark Symmetry Campaign.

The Dark Legion Campaign Book is a 196 page full colour softback written by a renowned writing team of Dave Allen, Nathan Dowdell, Marc Langworthy and Clive Oldfield. It also features some spectacular art from Toma Feizo Gas, Michael Berube, Audrey Hotte and Red Scar Publishing.

Whitestar sourcebook released for Mutant Chronicles

Whitestar-768x993

May 26th, 2016

Modiphious has released the Whitestar Sourcebook for The Mutant Chronicles RPG.

The mega corporations could not flee fast enough from the irradiated and chemically saturated Earth. They assumed that nothing could survive among the acid-scarred ruins of their birthplace. Not until they returned in the hopes of finding plunder amongst the rubble did they realise how wrong their assumptions had been. Following the example of their beloved Tsarina, Whitestar has founded an empire amongst the tunnels and Strongholds below the wastelands. One that sits ready to defend their ancient homeland no matter the cost.

Inside this 96 page full colour source book:

  • Delve into the history of the Whitestar Federation and discover the untold facts about their growth into a power to be reckoned with.
  • Survival and Exploration: The Federation has managed to flourish despite the many dangers that now stalk the Wastelands. Tread carefully in their footsteps across the frozen wastes, and avoid the blood red winds.
  • The Tsarina’s People: Become one of Tsarina’s chosen using the expanded rules for the backgrounds and professions unique to Whitestar.
  • Ancient Technology: The technicians of Whitestar have become experts in bricolage out of necessity. Take a firsthand look at some of the machines and devices they have cobbled together.
