Seek Adventure!

“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…”

The Mark of the Dragon!

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!

History meets Myth

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, ancient Greek myth, and Crusading legends, it’s where history meets myth, and where legends are born. The book 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.

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!

Chronicles Teaser Image

Next month, in September 2018, Mindjammer Press is going to be launching its Kickstarter campaign for its epic new game THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH – COSMIC FANTASY ROLEPLAYING IN THE POST-HISTORICAL AGE. This massive standalone tome will be based on the Fate Core engine, highly customised to the cosmic fantasy genre, and will contain everything you need to play in this fantastic world of the far distant future. Over the coming weeks we’re going to be featuring snippets of the setting. To begin with, here are some words from Pilogiarch Jennisa Vlathu of the House of the Umbran Coil, Venerated High Priestess of the Temple of Unthar at Korudav, speaking in the year 2991 of the Fifth Cycliad…

“Look around you at the heavy red sun and the ruins of the past. Can you hear the whispered tales of the Beloved Dead? Their stories of the wars with the Mantis Men, those crumbling bones silent in the necropolises of the cities you walk every day? Your grandfather’s grandfather’s grandfather was not even a child back then, nor his parents a thought in their parents’ minds, infants playing in the sand of five hundred years ago.
