New Mindjammer adventure released by Modiphious Entertainment

mindjammer

December 14th, 2016

Modiphious invites you to adventure in the ruins of an ancient world in their new adventure for MindJammer: BLUE.

Blue. A beautiful yet alien world. Until six hundred years ago it was the home of an unimaginably advanced alien species, poised in splendid isolation on the brink of transcendence, refusing even to communicate with the lesser intelligences which had colonised its planetary twin. That’d be us—homo variens, the diverse and curious descendants of the colonists from Old Earth. Even our probes and telescopes were deflected, leaving us with tantalising glimpses of wonders beyond our ability to understand.

Then, six hundred years ago, the alien civilisation fell. Almost overnight: the lights on the surface of the planet Blue went out, the aliens’ structures seemed to dissolve, and the barrier which had protected them from prying eyes for millennia collapsed. But where had they all gone? Amid magnificent ruins we found devolved life forms, as confused and as uncomprehending as we.

None of us ever knew what had been lost. Until now. Now the Blues are back—and no one knows if even the Commonality can resist them. Let’s hope they want to be friends…

There’s been a murder on the fallen world of Blue, a planet of ragtag survivors and curious human colonists researching the remains of a near-transcendent alien civilisation. But the culprit is stranger than anyone had imagined; and, as factions manoeuvre for influence and control, a mystery is uncovered which threatens to change the Commonality forever!

BLUE includes:

  • Two whole alien worlds: maps, ecosystems, exointelligences, cultures, and more;
  • A multi-session adventure of intrigue, conspiracy, and mystery spanning an entire star system;
  • Secrets of the Commonality and the Mindjammer setting!

BLUE is a complete adventure supplement for Mindjammer—The Roleplaying Game. The Mindjammer—The Roleplaying Game core book is required for play.

Siege of the Citadel reboot on Kickstarter

September 11th, 2016

Cabinet Entertainment, along with Modiphious are rebooting one of the most awesome techno-fantasy miniatures boardgames of all time, Siege of the Citadel.

First seen in the 1990s this new edition is bringing together an A-List design team who are updating and balancing not only the rules, but also the new miniatures and tiles.

Richard Borg was the lead designer on the 1st Edition of Siege of the Citadel, now he’s joined by a hit squad of Kevin Wilson (Descent, Arkham Horror, Android), Eric Lang (The Others, Blood Rage, Acradia Quest, Warhammer 40,000: Conquest) and Jay Little (X-Wing Miniatures, Star Wars RPG, Blood Bowl Team Manager) to bring this new edition growling to life!

Originally published by Pressman Toys in the 1990s, Siege of the Citadel was one of the first games of its kind to offer many unique elements, including innovative features such as co-operative play, character development and the rotation of the Dark Legion player. Conceived by Sweden’s gaming powerhouse Target Games, Siege of the Citadel had television advertising in the US and hundreds of gamers still own much loved copies across the world.

Siege of the Citadel is set in the universe of Mutant Chronicles, created by Target Games, one of the bigger names in gaming in the 1990’s. Target released the DoomTrooper collectible card game and translated it into 16 languages, three boardgames, a SNES and Mega Drive DoomTrooper video game, Comic Book miniseries and graphic novel from Acclaim Comics, the massive Warzone miniatures game, the Mutant Chronicles 1st and 2nd Edition roleplaying games, a Hollywood movie, Fantasy Flight Games’ pre-painted miniature game plus – of course – the rebooted Warzone miniatures game and 3rd edition roleplaying game.

The Mutant Chronicles story took you on this full throttle dieselpunk sci-fi ride through a solar system beset by corporate intrigue and the invasion of a terrible dark alien force. With technology failing due to the insidious effects of the Dark Symmetry humankind must fight back against the Dark Legion hordes whilst dealing with in-fighting and conspiracy from within.

August 19th, 2016

Modiphious Entertainment has announced the release of Mutant Chronicles: Mutants and Heretics in PDF form.

Hidden amongst the shadows of abandoned buildings and crawling through the very bowels of the city are the misunderstood and the corrupt, those twisted mutants and insane Heretics that hide from the Light.

To the common man on the street, mutants are as contemptible as Heretics. But what are mutants really? Are they a vile by-product of the Dark Legion’s influence, or something else entirely? And what can be said of the true nature of a Heretic? Were these men and women born to become servants of Darkness, destined for evil, or are some drawn to the power that is offered in the hopes of turning it against itself?

? Heretics: What motivates a Heretic? Are they all of purely evil intent, or do shades of moral grey indeed exist? Is it really possible for a human to walk the razor’s edge between Darkness and Light?

? Mutants: What sparks mutation and what does it truly entail? Learn the truth about their twisted DNA and the intrinsic power that it brings to these enigmatic beings.

? • The Ancients: Strange vaults and undisclosed finds amongst the stars have led to advanced relics and unidentified ruins. But what ancient race left them behind? And to what purpose?

? • Vast Powers: Despite relentless persecution, mutants have been able to hide from both the Brotherhood and the agents of the Apostles. Discover the immense powers that allow them to stay one step ahead.
