Caph_PDF_launch_Modiphius_banner

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. Translated from the original French RPG from Studio Deadcrows, and edited and produced by ENnie-award winning writer Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, Achtung! 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. And the game will be available in your friendly local game store shortly after!

We hope you enjoy this exciting new roleplaying game, which joins other Mindjammer Press products such as Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game and the Monsters & Magic RPG. Grab your scimitar, mount your camel, and enter the djinn-haunted ruins in the desert wastes. Adventure awaits!

The Mindjammer Kickstarter – Open Now!

banner_gplus_small

We’re delighted to announce the launch today of the MINDJAMMER KICKSTARTER to fund a massive expansion of the far future transhuman science-fiction and roleplaying game setting. Featuring sourcebooks, supplements, and adventures, as well as new fiction including the second and third novels in the Mindjammer trilogy, this marks a major step up for the award-winning game.

The first £5,000 goal of the Kickstarter is to fund THE CITY PEOPLE, an action-packed 80-page adventure of mystery and exploration on an alien world, featuring horror, thrills, and scientific discovery aboard the sentient Space Force explorer ship Magnanimous Intervention. Once this is funded we have lined up stretch goals including sourcebooks such as the Core Worlds and Venu, new adventures and fiction, and more surprises beyond.

“The time is right for a Mindjammer kickstarter,” said Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Achtung! Cthulhu, Legends of Anglerre, Monsters & Magic, Burn Shift, The Chronicles of Future Earth), author of Mindjammer and director of Mindjammer Press. “We’ve reached a critical mass of material ready for publication, and over the past 18 months since launching the second edition we’ve assembled a great team of talented artists, writers, and layout designers to take us to the next level. I have over a million words of source material written, and am very excited that we now have the opportunity to bring it to Mindjammer fans old and new.”

The Mindjammer line is co-published by Modiphius Entertainment, who are supporting Mindjammer Press with advice, marketing and logistics to help ensure the Kickstarter and its fulfilment are a success. “With our experience of running several major Kickstarters we’re well aware of how to help where it counts,” said Chris Birch, director of Modiphius Entertainment and leading light of such successful Kickstarters as Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles, and the recent Infinity RPG. “We’ve seen the Mindjammer line grow from the early days of Starblazer Adventures and now working together as Modiphius and Mindjammer Press it’s been great seeing the Commonality grow and grow with fans right across the world.”

The Mindjammer –The Roleplaying Game kickstarter launches today, Tuesday 17 November 2015, and runs until Sunday 20 December. It offers a wide range of popular pledges, from all-you-can-eat digital product pledges to print products and more. In addition to sourcebooks, supplements, and adventures detailing the New Commonality of Humankind and the awesome adventures you can have there using the Fate Core rules (from Evil Hat Productions), the kickstarter also features stretch goals such as a version of the Mindjammer game for the Traveller roleplaying game rules, and brand new fiction in the Mindjammer universe, including the second and third novels in the Mindjammer trilogy following the first critically acclaimed novel already available.
