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.

March 7th, 2017

The Galactic Empire’s iron grip seems insurmountable. The most powerful war machines the galaxy has ever seen are opposed only by a relatively small number of courageous souls. But the bravery of Soldiers and ingenuity of Commanders would be like a gentle breeze against the mightiest trees of Kashyyyk without the tireless work of every Engineer in the Rebel Alliance. Blasters and bombs, starfighters and secret bases, repurposed datapads and rebuilt droids—Engineers transform the noble ideals of the Rebellion into action with every turn of the spanner.

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce its next release for the Star Wars™: Age of Rebellion Roleplaying Game™. Fully Operational, the career sourcebook for Engineers, expands the resources available to players and gamemasters alike with new talent specializations, species, potent Signature Abilities, gear, and campaign enhancements perfect for those with a proclivity for tinkering, repairing, and constructing.

November 26th, 2016

From the sprawling Coruscant streets to the dangerous frontier of the Outer Rim, bounty hunters ply their valuable—and violent—trade. Mob bosses and corrupt politicians, criminal masterminds and debt-dodging deadbeats; scum of all stripes must remain wary of a possible (or probable) contract bearing their name. Whether the request is legal or less-than, a reliable bounty hunter as good as guarantees a successful transaction… as long as the credits are equally reliable.

Packed full of species, specializations, and gear, the No Disintegrations sourcebook for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire offers a wealth of exciting new options for neophyte trackers and veteran hunters alike. In today’s preview, we’ll look at the three new species on offer in No Disintegrations. Each provides a useful mechanical foundation for pursuing ne’er-do-wells across the stars as well as unique story hooks to provide you with inspiration to create a living citizen of the galaxy

July 9th, 2016

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Endless Vigil, a Sentinel sourcebook for the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game!

Under the tyrannical rule of the Galactic Empire, the galaxy has become a place of darkness and oppression. In no place is this felt more keenly than in the large, crowded cities where Imperial troops and agents frequently boast a major presence. There, corruption runs rampant and crimes often go unpunished.

Still, even in these oppressive, urban environments, there are some who dedicate themselves to fighting back from the shadows. These Sentinels are the last bastions of hope in these desperate cities, and theirs is often a thankless vigil. Even as they try to redress unsolved crimes and loosen the Empire’s stranglehold upon their worlds, they risk being reported by ordinary citizens who think they’re doing the right thing.

Endless Vigil empowers these Sentinels and their labors with 96 full-color pages of new specializations, species, signature abilities, and gear. Additionally, Game Masters will find a wealth of material designed to enrich their urban encounters; new droid adversaries and information on podracing run alongside tips and charts to help you get the most of your urban encounters and investigative adventures.

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.
