Modiphius Releases Dark Eden Campaign Book for Mutant Chronicles

Dark-Eden

March 24th, 2017

Modiphius is pleased to announce the release of the Dark Eden Campaign Book the final book in the scheduled Mutant Chronicles range and a spectacular conclusion to the Mutant Chronicles saga in an epic 200 page colour softback.

The Dark Eden Campaign is available in PDF only form from Modiphius.net and DriveThruRPG.com (a print version will be available in April 2017).

The Second Dark Legion War has escalated to encompass the entire solar system, with humanity hard-pressed to hold back the swelling tide of Darkness. A surge of Heresy has stretched the Brotherhood to the breaking point, while the megacorporations are throwing a rising body count into the ever-hungry maw of the Dark Legion. A slim chance of salvation leads the Cardinal to call upon the heroes of yesteryear and task them with uncovering ancient technology that will turn the tide of war in humanity’s favour. Technology that is hidden on humanity’s former home, Dark Eden—also known by its former name of Earth.

Fantasy Flight, Modiphius and Cabinet team up to republish Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel

October 9th, 2016

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce a publishing partnership with Modiphius Entertainment and Cabinet Entertainment to publish and distribute the exciting, action-packed reboot of the 1990’s classic techno-fantasy miniatures boardgame, Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel!

This publishing deal will begin with the conclusion of the Kickstarter, once all pledges have been fulfilled and the product released to retail.

Set in the post-apocalyptic universe of a techno-fantasy future in space, the Mutant Chronicles series of movies, roleplaying games, card games, novels, comics, and board games sees the earth as we know it drained of resources and abandoned for those planetary bodies closest to us: Venus, Mars, Mercury, Luna, and the Asteroid Belt. Eventually, these expanionist refugees awaken an unnatural evil, unleashing its demonic influence upon the remnants of humanity. Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel takes place during one of these great wars, as Cardinal Durand and the DoomTroopers unite the five huge megacorporations under one banner. Mustering the greatest army humanity has ever seen, these brave souls lay siege to Alakhai’s terrifying Citadel in an effort to liberate Venus.

In the game, each player will take on the role of one of these corporations, sending their duo of DoomTroopers into the Citadel on one of ten missions. Battling through the scenario, completing objectives, and securing the needs of their secondary missions, each successful player’s DoomTrooper will gain promotion points, potentially gaining rank or purchasing new and devastating weaponry and gadgets. In a truly unique take on semi-cooperative gameplay, the player who controls the forces of the Dark Legion rotates between each mission, allowing that player to still gain promotion points for their DoomTroopers while foiling the schemes of the other players.

The game will also support solo and fully cooperative gameplay.

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.

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.

May 26th, 2016

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

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.

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.
