Mindjammer Press is at GenCon this year! Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, The Chronicles of Future Earth, Monsters & Magic, Achtung Cthulhu, Capharnaum) will be there with John Snead (Mindjammer, Aeon Trinity, Star Trek) and François Cédelle of Studio Deadcrows (Capharnaum, Venzia, AmnesYa 2K51) will be at booth 2563 (MODIPHIUS ENTERTAINMENT) from Thursday 2 August right through to Sunday 5. As well as the whole Mindjammer and Monsters & Magic ranges, we’ll also have a special limited number of the gorgeous new hardback of CAPHARNAUM – THE TALES OF THE DRAGON-MARKED for launching the game! François Cédelle, one of the two lead creators of Capharnaum, and Sarah Newton, translator and publisher of the English-language version, will be signing copies and talking about this awesome new game.
Sarah, François, and John will be joined by Stephan Barat and Morgane Munns of Studio Deadcrows, the French RPG publisher behind the Capharnaum RPG and also the translation of Mindjammer into French.
Sarah, of course, will also be talking about Mindjammer, Monsters & Magic, and our exciting new project THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH – COSMIC FANTASY ROLEPLAYING IN THE POST-HISTORICAL AGE, kickstarting in September 2018. In addition, Sarah will also be participating in Chaosium’s panel on the new RuneQuest – Adventures in Glorantha at 11am on Friday 3 August, talking about the writing she’s doing for this awesome new edition of one of the most famous and venerable of RPGs.

“Mindjammer from Sarah Newton’s Mindjammer Press is one of my favorite games of the year, and it will hopefully be a breakout game at Gen Con.”
So says Chris Helton of the Dorkland blog, writing on Bleeding Cool this week in his article “The Five Must-Have Gen Con Games“. We’re totally stoked that Mindjammer is sitting alongside such RPG industry luminaries as Numenera, 13th Age, Castles and Crusades, and Achtung! Cthulhu as one of Bleeding Cool’s “Must-Have” games at GenCon 2014, taking place this week (August 14-17) in Indianapolis.
Mindjammer will of course be at GenCon – you can pick up your 500-page hardback of our standalone Fate Core transhuman science-fiction roleplaying game at the Indie Press Revolution (IPR) booth (booth #2221), together with a complementary PDF version of the game. There are also two games of Mindjammer being played – Hearts & Minds at 2pm on Thursday, and A Quiet Extraction at 8pm on Saturday – and check out Games on Demand, too.
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!
You can also check out Monsters & Magic in action – it’s being played at Games on Demand at GenCon at 2pm!
