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…”

You bear the Dragon Mark. You are destined for great things, adventures where you’ll write the history of the world.

The Capharnaum Kickstarter – OPEN NOW!

CaphKS_GPlus_MJP_logo

Today, Mindjammer Press is delighted to announce the launch of the Capharnaum Kickstarter, a new campaign to fund the production of the English-language version of this gorgeous and action-packed fantasy roleplaying game, originally published in French by Studio Deadcrows. Arabian Nights-style adventure in a fantasy world of crusaders, ancient empires, world-striding heroes, and mysterious draconic powers, Capharnaum comes as a beautiful 400-page hardback core book, and a complete line of supplements, adventures, screen, and support material which we’d like to ask you to help us fund. Check out the campaign today by clicking here or on the image above.

As a book, Capharnaum is a gorgeous artefact – beautiful and evocative artwork, and a profound and fascinating setting that riffs off historical and mythic themes to create a compelling game world. It also has a custom system which really hits our sweet spot: simple, elegant, and quick to learn, it’s also extremely flexible in play, and allows for some real depth with increasing system mastery. It’s been a sparkling gem on the French RPG scene for ten years, and has recently celebrated its decade with a second edition, and Mindjammer Press is proud to have the opportunity to bring it to an English-language audience.

In Capharnaum, you’ll find a fantasy Middle Sea surrounded by lands and empires reminiscent of mythical and historical ones of our own world, from ancient Agalanthia, a little like ancient Greece or Rome, through a Hispanic Aragon and its new Quarterian religion, the Shiradim of Capharnaum, and the Arabian-like Saabi. But the heart of the action starts in Jazirat, a peninsula similar to ancient Arabia, and coveted by all the world’s realms…

But your characters are above and outside these conflicts. You play one of the Dragon-Marked, individuals from any nation or tribe, marked by the mystical dragons, servitors of the gods, for a mysterious destiny. You find yourself thrown together with people who might otherwise be your foes, working together to change the world… Will you heed the call to adventure?

We’re launching the Capharnaum campaign today – right now, in fact – so please check out the campaign page where there’s a video and lots more information about the game. Also, as ever, we’re available for Q&A on the Kickstarter comments page, and to assist with anything you need. It was such an experience running the Mindjammer Kickstarter campaign two years ago, it’s been totally life-changing and has led to some awesome friendships and – we hope you’ll agree – a fantastic series of supplements and scenarios of ever-increasing quality which shows no signs of stopping! We’re very excited at the prospect of jumping in again, and we hope you’ll join us to explore this spectacular FRP game line and setting.

Announcing the Capharnaum RPG in English and the Mindjammer RPG in French!

Mindjammer-Deadcrows Studio

Mindjammer Press and Deadcrows Studio announce translation agreements for French-language MINDJAMMER and English-language CAPHARNAUM roleplaying games

Capharnaum-Mindjammer_press-release_image

20th May 2016—Mindjammer Press and Deadcrows Studio are delighted to announce their agreements to translate the CAPHARNAUM and MINDJAMMER roleplaying games into English and French respectively.

“The Capharnaum—The Mark of the Dragon RPG line is an absolutely beautiful series of game books focussed on an Arabian Nights-inspired setting with strong elements of ancient worlds mysteries, Crusades, and a Mediterranean fantasy ethos which I’ve loved for many years,” said Sarah Newton, director of Mindjammer Press (Mindjammer, The Chronicles of Future Earth, Monsters & Magic, Burn Shift, Achtung! Cthulhu). “It has the depth, detail, and sophisticated world-building which I love and which fans have come to expect from Mindjammer Press, and I’m proud to have this wonderful opportunity to bring the whole series to English-speaking gamers everywhere. At the same time, after our successful Mindjammer Kickstarter last December, it’s very exciting to have signed our first translation agreement to enable the great people at Deadcrows Studio to bring the Mindjammer RPG and fiction range to the French market. We’re looking forward to a very fertile and productive working relationship!”

“The Mindjammer roleplaying game is a pure transhumanist Space Opera offering unique and unusual adventuring opportunities, mixing exploration, discovery, intrigue, technology, cultural conflict, and epic combat. The richness of the Mindjammer setting opens infinite perspectives,” said Francois Cedelle of Deadcrows Studio (Capharnaum, Venzia, AmnesYa 2K51). “But it’s also a toolbox, permitting GMs to create and manage cultures, civilisations, planets, starships, and more. It contains everything you need to develop exciting and compelling scenarios in a coherent universe—and all driven by the fantastic FATE system.”

Mindjammer is already a magnificent game line, with a very complete core rulebook and a rich and beautifully illustrated line of supplements,” added Deadcrows Studio’s Stephan Barat. “We’re therefore particularly proud to announce that Mindjammer will be our first translated RPG, and we’re over the moon at the idea of working together with Sarah Newton and the whole Mindjammer Press team!”

Deadcrows Studio will be launching a crowdfunding campaign for the French-language version of Mindjammer in 2016, for publication in 2017. Mindjammer Press expects to release the Capharnaum RPG core book in early 2017, with a range of supplements to follow in 2017 and 2018.

MINDJAMMER PRESS is a British games publisher founded by Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Achtung! Cthulhu, Monsters & Magic, Legends of Anglerre, Fate Core – Burn Shift, The Chronicles of Future Earth) and Chris McWilliam to produce roleplaying games and related fiction, including: the transhuman science-fiction roleplaying game Mindjammer for Fate Core, and its series of supplements and novels; The Chronicles of Future Earth; and Monsters & Magic.
