We’re delighted to announce the release of Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked, a brand new roleplaying game and a major new release from Mindjammer Press. Translated from the original French RPG from Studio Deadcrows, and edited and produced by ENnie-award winning writer Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, Achtung! Cthulhu, Monsters & Magic), this gorgeous 384-page full-colour hardback is the first in a series of releases for this exciting and action-packed game.

“I CAME SEEKING ADVENTURE… AND I FOUND CAPHARNAUM…

It called to me with its ancient gods and enmities, its mysterious quests, desert caravans, and dusty souks. I was tracking a djinn, one of the worst, a marid risen in rebellion against Marduk the Dragon. In the depths of the desert I had a vision of a thousand warriors crossing this scorching land. Here everything is in motion, wind and sand, and the night has a thousand colours. Everything is struggle – even for those who seek a peaceful life…”

You bear the Dragon Mark. You are destined for great things, adventures where you’ll write the history of the world. In a land of mysteries and magic, where East meets West on the burning sands of Jazirat, your future awaits. Discover a whole new world, confront djinn, gods, and dragons, and take your place among the heroes of the age!

Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked is a fantasy roleplaying game set in a world of Arabian Nights, Argonauts, and Adventure. Inspired by the One Thousand and One Nights, the myths of ancient Greece, and the legends of the Crusades, it’s where history meets myth, and where legends are born.

This gorgeous 384-page full-colour hardback contains:

  • A whole new world of history, legend, and myth – a profound and original setting.
  • Simple yet flexible rules encouraging player inventiveness up to epic levels of play.
  • Peoples, gazetteer, and bestiary for the land of Jazirat, inspired by Middle- Eastern history and myth.
  • Gorgeous maps and full-colour artwork.

The PDF version of Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked is available immediately today from Modiphius.net and DriveThruRPG. The full-colour 384-page hardback and complimentary PDF will be available for pre-order from Modiphius.net from Wednesday 25th July 2018, and will ship on the 30th August. And the game will be available in your friendly local game store shortly after!

We hope you enjoy this exciting new roleplaying game, which joins other Mindjammer Press products such as Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game and the Monsters & Magic RPG. Grab your scimitar, mount your camel, and enter the djinn-haunted ruins in the desert wastes. Adventure awaits!

The Capharnaum Kickstarter – FINAL WEEK (until 17 Dec)

Hi everyone!

We’re now entering our final 7 days in the Capharnaum Kickstarter. We’re already funded, and have begun unlocking some fantastic stretch goals. Come and join us and get in on this massive new arrival on the English-language RPG scene! With its deep setting and exciting yet flexible rules, Capharnaum channels the pulp Harryhausen greats like Sinbad and Jason & the Argonauts, mixes them up with Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven, and then infuses the whole thing with the spirit of epic heroes challenging even the gods, to create a unique and compelling roleplaying experience.

Not only is the 400-page hardback core book a thing of beauty, it’s also splendidly supported, with a GM Screen, Player’s Guide, Bestiary, Atlas, and massive world-breaking campaign, the Kingdom of Heaven – and much more!

Our Kickstarter page and its updates gives you loads of information about this great game, including a free 44-page Quickstart so you can play before you back – but be quick, the Kickstarter campaign ends this Sunday 17th December. So come and join us, bear the Dragon-Mark, and change the world!
