We’re delighted to announce today the release of The Mindjammer Player’s Guide – Adventuring in the New Commonality of Humankind, a major new rules release for Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game, from ENnie-award winning writer Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, Achtung! Cthulhu, Monsters & Magic).
The Mindjammer Player’s Guide is a book specifically for players of Mindjammer—The Roleplaying Game. It contains all the rules you need to play as a player, with complete character creation sequences, new genotypes and cultures, and a whole new octant of Commonality Space in which to set your character stories and adventures. It contains:
- The essential Fate Core system, all the rules you need to create and play characters in the Mindjammer universe—including rules for creating and playing sentient starship characters!
- Descriptions and histories of the New Commonality of Humankind.
- New starmaps, homeworlds, and genotypes of Commonality Space.
- Rules for the Mindscape and virtual worlds.
Note that while the Mindjammer Player’s Guide contains some new content, it also reiterates much of the material of the Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game Core book. You don’t need the Player’s Guide if you already have that book – although your players may love a copy!
At the same time, we’re also releasing The Enhanced Commonality Space Schematic poster map, a gorgeous remastered and updated version of the New Commonality Schematic from the Mindjammer Core Book and Mindjammer Player’s Guide. Expanded with new information and illustrations of key worlds and system data, the Enhanced Schematic comes in both high-resolution PDF and TIF formats and also as a Desktop Wallpaper for your tablet or PC! Visualise the vastness of the New Commonality of Humankind with this gorgeous artwork schematic by Mindjammer lead artist Jason Juta (Mindjammer, Shadowrun, Gamma World, Warhammer 40K, Battletech, Song of Ice and Fire).
The Mindjammer Player’s Guide and The Enhanced Commonality Space Schematic are available now in PDF digital format on Modiphius.net and DriveThruRPG, with the print edition available from the 23rd November.
We’re delighted to announce the launch today of CHILDREN OF ORION – THE VENU SOURCEBOOK, the brand new supplement for our transhuman science-fiction RPG Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game, by Mindjammer creator Sarah Newton and David Donachie (Legends of Anglerre, Solipsist).
YOU WILL KNEEL BEFORE THE EMPEROR—OR DIE!
“To dwell on the past is weakness! We were born from nucleonic fire. We were forged in flame and suffering. And now we march to the stars and make the spawn of abomination burn!”
Welcome to the Bright Empire of Venu—the interstellar civilisation of the “bad guys” of Human Space! An ancient people of xenophobic human supremacists, survivors of an ancient war, now hellbent on cleansing the cosmos of abomination and bringing the purifying word of their undying God-Emperor to the stars.
Children of Orion—the Venu Sourcebook provides a whole new universe of adventure for your Mindjammer games—a harsh and violent interstellar empire beyond the Commonality frontier. Play rebels against the domineering rule of the God-Emperor, mutated troopers and servitors of the sinister Dark Radiance fighting against the cultural inroads of the Commonality—or Commonality agents themselves, working behind enemy lines to defeat an implacable foe which once devastated the Core Worlds! It’s a completely different vibe for your Mindjammer games—darker, more desperate, where the survival of an entire people is at stake.
Children of Orion—the Venu Sourcebook includes:
- Prehistories and histories of the Empire of Venu
- The strange powers of the Dark Radiance
- Starmaps and world descriptions
- Full details for creating Venu characters, including genotypes, occupations, and cultures
- Venu tech and starships
- Guidelines for playing Venu campaigns. Fight against the Venu, or play a Venu character yourself!
Also check out Sarah Newton’s blog post today on the genesis of the Venu and Children of Orion.
Children of Orion—the Venu Sourcebook is now available in PDF format on Modiphius.net and DriveThruRPG, with the print edition available from the 23rd November.
