The Monsters & Magic RPG at GenCon 2013


This week at GenCon 2013, our “old school fantasy – new school play” RPG Monsters & Magic is launching in print version at the Chronicle City booth (1751). By ENnie Award-winning game designer Sarah Newton, and featuring a gorgeous cover by Jason Juta, interior art by such industry stalwarts as Jennell Jaquays, Linda Jones, Eric Lofgren, Brad McDevitt, and Gill Pearce, and maps by Rich LeDuc, Monsters & Magic is a 140-page softback containing all you need to play your classic old school modules and supplements with a new and modern set of rules – with little or no conversion.

Grab a copy today from Chronicle City, publishers of the print version – either direct from their booth at GenCon, or by mail order from their webstore, or in PDF from DriveThruRPG. Copies will be making their way into distribution to your Friendly Local Game Store 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.
