Two New Mindjammer Books Available from Modiphius

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.

Oct 24, 2017

Ghosts of Dathomir, an all-new adventure for the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game, is available now from Fantasy Flight Games.

With the Jedi Order abolished and the Jedi all but extinct, now is a dangerous time to be a Force user. Seeking the remnants of Jedi teachings and chasing the whispers of artifacts while avoiding Imperial persecution would be difficult enough, but young Force adepts have to contend with the temptation of the dark side. Ghosts of Dathomirplaces you on the hunt for a statue rumored to have ties to the Force, ties so powerful that its discovery could lead you to a greater understanding of the Force… or to your annihilation.

The statue is called Tragic Hope, and it has popped up for auction on the Hutt-controlled world of Toydaria; of course, your party are not the only people interested in the artifact. A ruthless mercenary named Jerserra has left a trail of bodies throughout the Mid and Outer Rim territories as she builds up her crime network, and she seeks the statue with a fervor that suggests something personal is at stake. The Empire has their eyes on Jerserra, and Hutt spies are everywhere across Toydaria. Can you navigate the criminal underworld and escape unscathed to discover what ties this statue to the Force and learn how the dread world of Dathomir is involved?
