MUH042207_Mindjammer_Companion_cover-1-e1510153812797

Nov 15, 2017

Modiphius is expanding the world of Mindjammer with two new books.

The first is the Core Worlds book, which provides the information needed about the Commonality Core and the other is the Mindjammer Companion which takes you to the Outremer subsector.

The Core Worlds Sourcebook details a vast sector of Commonality Space for your Mindjammer games. Focussing for the first time on the ancient, decadent, and sophisticated heart of the Commonality, it provides you with deep background and material to explore this fascinating region. Play Fringe Worlders experiencing the strangeness of the Core first-hand, or Core Worlders, sure of their superiority, until they leave their homes and are found wanting. Play planetary sentiences ruling whole worlds, ancient dynasties with plans crossing millennia, illegal xenomorphs fighting oppression and neglect in the forbidden substrates beneath the towering arcologies. Push the boundaries of transhuman science-fiction gaming—explore what it means to be human itself. A bright, bizarre, and thought-provoking milieu for your Mindjammer games!

In The Mindjammer Companion, welcome to the turbulent worlds of the Outremer subsector, out on the Commonality frontier. It’s the heart of the Rim Sector, a spectacular, violent place of feuding polities in the no-man’s land between the Commonality and the Venu Empire. In the aftermath of war, everything is up for grabs: Successor States rise and fall, the new xenomorph Sentient Alliance flexes its muscles, and the Commonality and the nefarious Venu jostle for position, knowing that war could break out again at any moment.

Achtung! Cthulhu – Zero Point – Code of Honour Available from Modiphius

Zero-Point-768x990

Nov 5, 2017

Modiphius has released a new pre-made adventure for Achtung! Cthulhu titled Zero Point – Code of Honour.

Istanbul in 1942 is a neutral city, packed with spies. Everyone’s here – the Nazis, the Soviets, the Brits and the Yanks, the Japanese and a host of other nations, all waging a deadly war of wits against a backdrop of cocktail bars and polite smiles. From the infamous Snake Pit in the Park Hotel, to the jazz clubs and fashionable restaurants of Istiklal Avenue, to the warrens of alleys around the spires and mosques of Fatih and Sultanahmet, it’s a city in ferment. While Turkey desperately tries to stay out of the war, the Führer’s armies mass less than a hundred miles away.

But that’s not all. Something even more terrifying is going on beneath the ancient streets of the Sublime Porte. Meddling forces have unearthed an ancient treasure, setting in motion plans centuries old which threaten to change the course of the whole war – and even the world!

Code of Honour: Zero Point 1942 is a multi-session Achtung Cthulhu adventure with a difference. It features:

  • descriptions and personalities of Istanbul in 1942
  • a detailed map of wartime Istanbul
  • rules for tradecraft and spying
  • secrets and mysteries of Istanbul, including new grimoires
  • a multi-session adventure of lethal conspiracy

Can you fathom the mystery of Code of Honour, and win this deadly battle in the secret war?

In the last centuries of the Fifth Cycliad, a great malaise fell on the lands of humankind… It is the far future. Our civilisation, and its glorious technological future, is gone. Only rusted ruins and tunnels beneath the ancient cities hint at what once was. In the Chronomancer’s Tower, a young apprentice stumbles upon a secret which will change the world; an ancient evil, little more than a fairy tale to frighten children, is real, and threatening to return. But is everything what it seems? Wheels turn within wheels, and political machinations wrought by selfish men and women bring the world to the brink of devastation. Can Iago and his unlikely allies unravel the knot in time, and fathom the mystery of… the Worm Within?

Bauhaus Sourcebook for Mutant Chronicles RPG released

Mutant_Chronicles_Bauhaus

March 31st, 2016

Bauhaus, the newest sourcebook for Mutant Chronicles RPG from Modiphius is available now.

In Mutant Chronicles RPG you will explore a dark, unsettling future, where the solar system is riven by war, corporate intrigue and vicious infighting in the face of a vicious Dark Legion invasion in a classic sci-fi diesel-punk setting. Modiphius has been supporting this rich game world with a raft of new releases in 2016 including special supplements for major corporations like Capitol, Mishima and Brotherhood, plus the Dark Symmetry campaign and standalone adventures like the Fall of Van Holle.

Bauhaus makes the bold claim that they are the first and oldest of all corporations, forged by the turmoil of Old Earth, although their power base now resides firmly amidst the swamps and jungles of Venus. They are a proud, powerful and dignified people that stand tall in the light of the Cardinal, implacable enemies of the forces of darkness which have engulfed mankind in the futuristic solar system of the Mutant Chronicles’ universe. Noble houses and orders of power makes Bauhaus into a multifaceted gem that it is near impossible to crack. Their enemies have a hard time even scratching the surface.
