Another more detailed look on all five of the Heretics! Plus the new Twisted Marionette!
Finally here's a teaser for the Heretics set being designed by Prodos Games, which will consist of five figures with Stat cards for Warzone. These are available now as an Add On (just pick the 'Miniatures Add On' at £15). They show off the final set soon. Each week they will be unveiling figure sets that are available now and those which are being unlocked.
To give you an idea they currently have planned 3 figure RPG character sets for Imperial, Capitol, Bauhaus, Mishima, Cybertronic, the Brotherhood, Heretics, Civilian Characters and much more. Each set will be £15 as an Add On.
Mutant Chronicles: Dark Symmetry - The core rules plus everything you need to know about the Dark Legion, their heretics and Apostles, how they operate, their different tactics and creatures, the four big Corporations (Imperial, Capitol, Bauhaus, Mishima), the Brotherhood and Whitestar. The future history that led to the exodus from Earth, a timeline leading up to the first outbreak of the Dark Symmetry, the first Corporate War, the rise of the Brotherhood and the Dark Legion invasion. Full details and rules for life in the 25th century, the colonies and space travel. Plots, adventure seeds, GM advice and plot secrets, lifepath & point buy character generation and a d20 based cinematic system with 8 attributes that is fast and furious.
Mutant Chronicles: Dark Legion - The second core setting book fills in the timeline through 700 years of history to the epic events of the Second Corporate War and Second Dark Legion invasion, the rise of Cybertronic and plenty of other cataclysmic stories. Updated maps of the colonies, and details on the corporations. Plot seeds, the fateful mission to Nero and much much more.
Mutant Chronicles: Dark Soul - This book replaces the Algeroth and Ilian Guide books - however all the Apostles will be heavily represented in the core Dark Symmetry book. The Dark Soul book will detail Pluto, Nero, more details on the citadels, the Dark Legion universe, the true ancient history, their 'last war', the in-fighting and politics, more tactics, creatures, and plot seeds.
The Guides - Each corporate Guide book will present more detailed lifepath generation based on each Corporation or Faction, specific equipment, their colonies and resources. Plots and storylines and how the faction differs between the Dark Symmetry and Dark Legion era's. Additionally each Guide will also double as a guide to one of the worlds or regions of the Solar System with planetary maps and local information on Dark Legion activity. There will also be other guides on Luna, Freelancers, Mutants and more.
The Campaigns - Three campaign are planned set in each of the three main eras: Dark Symmetry, Dark Legion and Dark Eden. Dark Symmetry will take introduce characters as lowly freelancers and Luna Police Department cops investigating the first outbreaks of the Dark Symmetry through the rise of the cult and on through the great events of the Corporate and Dark Legion wars to the final assault on the citadel. It leads up to a very cool surprise! The Dark Legion campaign will take you through the epic events of the Dark Legion era (the same as the 2nd Ed RPG).
Really awesome, glad I bought of all the books! Will be a blast to read them through!
Mutant Chronicles was one of the bigger names in gaming in the 1990's with the Doom Trooper collectible card game translated in to 16 languages, three boardgames, two video games, the massive Warzone miniatures game and the Mutant Chronicles 1st and 2nd Edition roleplaying games with more recently a Hollywood movie, Fantasy Flight Games pre-painted miniature game and last year the reboot of Warzone by Prodos Games. Watch our video for examples of the stunning art from the world.
The Mutant Chronicles story took you on this full throttle dieselpunk sci-fi ride through a solar system beset by corporate intrigue and the invasion of a terrible dark alien force. With technology failing due to the insidious effects of the Dark Symmetry humankind must fight back against the Dark Legion hordes whilst dealing with in-fighting and conspiracy from within.
The Solar System is a roaring mayhem of death and war. The surfaces of the inner planets have been swept clean by the violent onslaught of the dark legions storming hordes of Nepharites, Razides, Pretorian Stalkers and Undead Legionaries. In the enormous cities of the far and distant future, heretics devoted to the destruction of humankind stalk the dark backstreets and gloomy alleys spreading their teachings of greed, jealously and war [From the 2nd Edition Back Cover]
In the late 21st century a growing madness of plagues, wars, terrorism and environmental collapse led to the rushed terraforming of the colonies by the major corporations, an exodus from Earth and the final cataclysmic nuclear war. It takes hundreds of years to re-establish life as we know it on the inner worlds of our solar system. Imperial, Capitol, Bauhaus and Mishima now rule from their homes in the steaming jungles of Venus, the caverns of Mercury, the deserts of Mars and the many orbitals and asteroid homes of the solar system. Luna City is a vast neutral sprawl, many hundreds of years old, built up and over the first colony and mines.
A fateful exploratory mission to Pluto unleashes an ancient evil force 'The Dark Symmetry' upon the thinking machines of man. As technology fails (and even fights back), mankind is beset with conspiracy and corporate intrigue from within. Dark things gather on the edges of the colonies and whilst corporate war consumes the greatest armies of man, the Dark Legion’s citadels rise up throughout the worlds of the solar system and terrifying armies march out to consume all. They were defeated long ago, they will not be defeated this time...
As the Dark Symmetry's malign influence on humanity grows, the Brotherhood with their strange powers, arise to unite the corporate armies as one and fight back.
So what have Modiphius done?
Oh yes - we have all the Corporate books, Campaigns, stand alone adventures, GM guides and major settings (the first being Dark Symmetry (set during before and during the first Dark Legion invasion), Dark Legion (set during the time of the 1st and 2nd edition) and Dark Eden (set during the closing stages of the 2nd Dark Legion war).
So got home this morning at 3am. Kids woke me up 6.30 how I've missed them! And I was only gone for three nights! My little girl is organizing at my nerd place now that I´ve gotten home with more stuff!
Anyway I think now I can relax and actually write something that makes sense!
Btw Alex how could you not find the convention without my help? It had a sign! ;)
The convention was actually opened up by the mayor! Wow that was awesome, he posed with a sword for the pics but got scissors to cut the "ribbon" or whats it called.
It was roughly around 80 people that actually came around, great turnout since they thought it would be around 50!
Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition RPG
Then after the convention had opened we got Chris to explain the RPG and answer some questions about the Kickstarter and about the rules etc. So he asked us if we wanted to testplay the new 2.0 system, and why would we say no?
So the system is really interesting with the GM:s Dark Symmetry pool (we played it in the middle of the table so all could reach) with which he can spawn and activate monsters, change the enviroment with blinking lights and stuff like that. He also said it would work better with a glasbowl and that they hoped to do a Dark Symmetry goblet during the KS so everyone hear each time a dice go in the pool, nice thinking Chris!
If you are trained in a skill you get to roll two D20s to try passing the test your given, with only one sucess on the dices you get a sucess and you complete the task and also the GM gets a Dark Symmetry die since you also fail with one die roll. If you fail both two rolls two dices go into the pool, however shoul the dice spot a 20 (A fumble) and extra die is thrown in the Symmetry pool. So if you fail both and one is a fumble three dices are thrown in the pool.
Further more, when you try to do actually pull things off and the lights are flickering you are under fire or somethings like that, it gets harder to actually pull it off. So you could get a -3 dice modifier since its hard to hit anything with your gun. Then you could pay two Dark Symmetry dice to the pool to get a normal roll ( If I got it correctly).
Now I will take up the Chronicle Points, with which you can alter a roll in Character Creation or succed with a roll however impossible it seems. Chris´s example was: If you´re carrying your wounded friend on the shoulder, running and shooting at a horde of Undead Legionaires and have to jump over a chasm to escape. Pay a Chronicle Point and you did it!
He said that possibly you will start with 5 Chronicle Points in Character Creation so you could spend all your points in the creation too get a better character but then you used up all your "luck"!
And lastly I will tell you about.... Spaceships! Yes they will finally be in a spaceships MC and you could be the owner of one! So the Characters will be able to spend points and experience in the ship and can develope skills that makes you better. Chris also stated that you could take a loan to upgrade the ship, but you never know who you owe money too!
Skills example: Pilot -> Space Pilot -> Mishima Dogfighter Yea this was just an example ;)
Thank you Chris for the talk and the Game Session! Look forward to the Kickstarter that we will see once Achtung Cthulu KS has sent out the last orders!
So it was a Warzone day after all! Lots and lots of models and beutiful terrain! Talked and met up with Prodos and alot of people from the forum that I can finally put a face on! Thanks it was great meeting you guys!
So whats to say that you already dont know... The Rules are fantastic! All I have to do is rid my mind of all 40k thinking, like moving the entire squad before shooting and things like that. The new units are awesome and the Mishima ones are the best both rulewise and in miniature ( Only spotted the artwork but still).
These rules makes the battlefield feel more alive and every soldier have his chance to shine and for the player to develop his own tactics with every single one of his soldiers not just squads! You want to name them, give them personalities and most importantly you will mourn their deaths! As I said before its the best miniature game I´ve ever played, it has it all beautiful models, amazing rules and most important of all a great community!
In the Seal of Repulsion campaign the Dark Legion came out to a strong start and got a 3 points lead before the Light landed to help the Corporations in the struggle. The Brotherhood then passed the Dark Legion an took the lead. But in the end of the campaign it was a tie until the last match which gave the Dark Legion their victory. The Corporation who got they blame for the loss with the worst win rating was Capitol! (Why are you guys pointing at me!) So now we have to see what the have in store for the campaign and storyline! Really looking forward to see it unfold!
So who here is excited for AVP? Now we got the KS announce date and I give you some pics!
