THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH Kickstarter!

Mindjammer Press and Modiphius Entertainment are delighted to announce the launch of Mindjammer Press’s brand new Kickstarter for THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH – COSMIC FANTASY ROLEPLAYING IN THE POST-HISTORICAL AGE. Set in the far, far future of our own planet Earth, on a world grown strange with time, adventure in the Venerable Autocracy of Sakara, oldest of the Springtide Civilisations, a land of demons and sorcery, mouldering ruins and perilous ancient technologies, monsters and mysterious dimensions.

In the last centuries of the Fifth Cycliad, a great malaise began to descend on the lands of humankind. The great civilisations of the Earth, which for aeons had seemed on the verge of slumber, now finally began to rot from within. From the edges of the world, the ever-present enemies drew close, their hungry claws poised to tear apart the delicate flesh of a fruit a hundred millennia in the ripening. And all around, a cry arose for Heroes, to stand against the dying of the light, and save the world from the sins of its past.

THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH is written and designed by Sarah Newton, award-winning author of MINDJAMMER – THE ROLEPLAYING GAME, MONSTERS & MAGIC, ACHTUNG CTHULHU, and more. Using a heavily-modified version of the Fate Core system, tailored specifically to the lethal, high-action adventures of cosmic fantasy, it’s a gorgeous standalone game.

You can find THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH at Kickstarter here. There’s even a free 60-page downloadable Quickstart and Introductory Adventure, THE SWALLOWER OF SOULS, so you can try out the rules and setting.

Some said it was the end of days. Some said it was only the beginning. These adventures tell the history of that time yet to come. These are the Chronicles of Future Earth…

The Chronicles of Future Earth: Of the Ages of the Earth

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.

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.

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.
