Mindjammer Press – Fifth Birthday Sale! 20% off!

Late last month Mindjammer Press turned five years old, marking half a decade of publishing role-playing games and related fiction! It’s been an absolute whirlwind – two RPGs, over a dozen books, and three expansive and exciting settings for adventure. And of course we couldn’t have done any of this without you!
To celebrate our fifth birthday, we’re holding a one-week sale of all our Mindjammer Press products (Wed 4th October thru Tuesday 10 October), with a full 20% off all our PDF products and selected print products on both DriveThru RPG and the Modiphius Entertainment webstore. The sale covers the Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game range of RPG and fiction products (core book, supplements, and novel), the Monsters & Magic roleplaying game, and the new novel for the upcoming Chronicles of Future Earth RPG setting, The Worm Within. Check it out today!
We’d like to say a HUGE thank-you to everyone who has supported us over the past five years, buying and playing our games and books, backing our Kickstarter, helping spread the word, and encouraging us to keep producing our games and worlds, and of course a special thanks to Chris and Rita Birch and all the team at Modiphius Entertainment for being such awesome distribution partners. We hope you’ll join us for many more years and worlds to come!
Best,
Sarah Newton, Chris McWilliam, Jason Juta, and the whole team at Mindjammer Press

The Monsters & Magic RPG back in print!


Mindjammer Press and Modiphius Entertainment are delighted to announce the release of the acclaimed Monsters & Magic roleplaying game, available now in a brand new print edition (including a complementary PDF!) for just £19.99 on DriveThruRPG.com.

“Honestly, this looks set to become one of my new favourite games. I give it a 5 of 5 for Substance.” — RPG.net review

Created by Sarah Newton, author of the ENnie award-winning Mindjammer roleplaying game, Monsters & Magic features old school fantasy with new school play, letting you play your beloved old 1st edition modules and campaigns using this modern rules set with an old school vibe—with little or no conversion!

Combining the atmosphere of classic fantasy games with modern RPG mechanics, Monsters & Magic lets you use old school fantasy gaming material with little or no conversion with a new and innovative set of rules. Battle giants, defeat dragons, explore deadly dungeons and mysterious wilderlands—and bring your favourite adventures, supplements, spellbooks, and bestiaries to brilliant new life!

Monsters & Magic features:

• the Effect Engine, a modular open-license rules system
• action-packed adventure from 1st to 20th level and beyond
• rules for castles, kingdoms, guilds, and warships
Silvermoon, an introductory adventure for levels 1-4
• new rules for alignment, hazards, encounters, treasures, epic and mythic gaming, and more!
• 140 pages, black & white interior.

Dust off your spell book, polish that suit of +1 plate armour, and unsheathe your vorpal blade. Adventure awaits!

Monsters & Magic is a complete fantasy roleplaying game—you need nothing else to play. However, please note that while Monsters & Magic is a standalone game, featuring rules which can take you to 20th level and beyond, it’s also specifically designed to work with your favourite classic fantasy bestiaries and spell books. As such, it contains 1st and 2nd level spells and just over 20 sample monsters—enough to cater for your first 4 or so levels of play. Although the rules can take you much further, you’ll want to use your own classic bestiaries or spellbooks for higher level characters, or any of those available for free online!

Keep an eye out for our other Monsters & Magic products now in development, including:

All Under Heaven — Oriental Monsters & Magic (coming soon!)
The Heroic Companion — Hero Scale Adventures for Monsters & Magic.
The Horror of Haugling Hall — a Monsters & Magic adventure for levels 1-4.

We hope you’ll take the chance to enjoy this brand new printed version of this classic fantasy roleplaying game and look out for more great Monsters & Magic titles appearing soon!

Mindjammer Press and Chronicle City announce the “Monsters & Magic” RPG

Have you got heaps of modules lying around, which you played and loved years ago and would like to use again? Tomes of spells, bestiaries full of terrifying monsters, languishing because the old rulebooks don’t have that zing you’re looking for these days? Then look no further!

Mindjammer Press and Chronicle City are very happy to announce their partnership to produce the print version of Monsters & Magic, an Old School Renaissance fantasy roleplaying game written by Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, Achtung! Cthulhu).

Monsters & Magic is a modern fantasy roleplaying game which mixes cutting edge rules mechanics and narrative techniques with traditional fantasy roleplaying concepts. Specifically designed to be used with classic fantasy supplements and adventures with little or no conversion, it allows players and GMs to pick up their favourite fantasy campaigns and characters and bring them to brilliant new life. It’s a game firmly in the “Old School Renaissance” spirit, and works seamlessly with classic fantasy products, new and old.

“This is a very exciting opportunity,” said Sarah Newton, co-owner of Mindjammer Press and author of Monsters & Magic. “Angus and I have worked together on many titles, including the ENnie-award winning Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, and Modiphius’ Achtung! Cthulhu. This deal is another step in our partnership, and allows us to bring the Monsters & Magic RPG and its line of supplements to a wide and discerning audience, using Chronicle City’s proven industry expertise and excellent track record. We’re looking forward to a regular release of Monsters & Magic products with Chronicle City, beginning with the core rulebook this May.”

“Sarah has produced fantastic work for a number of companies over the years and has great vision and ideas. I’m very pleased to be able to work with her again, and Mindjammer Press for the first time, to bring Monsters & Magic to print and retail stores, and look forward to renewing our collaboration on this and hopefully future projects,” added Angus Abranson, owner of Chronicle City Ltd.
