Mutant Chronicles RPG – 3rd Ed.

It has been several months since I have done a “Kickstarter Pick” but here is one that should not be missed!


Modiphius, the same team behind Achtung! Cthulhu, have just launched The Mutant Chronicles Kickstarter – a re-boot of the amazing techno-fantasy roleplaying game!  This is one cool setting, it reminds me a lot of one of my favorite MMOs – The Secret World.  Sci-Fi dieselpunk with invading dark alien forces, corporate intrigue and conspiracies!  Sign me up!

If you don’t already know; 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.

So this Kickstarter is to raise money to pay for new stunning full color, hard cover books for the settings and rule books starting with the rules and core setting book Mutant Chronicles: Dark Symmetry. The core book pdf is planned to be delivered in July 2014, and the print version in August.

Modiphius plans re-design of the rules and a re-write of the setting guides and supplements to include brand new material alongside the existing storyline. You can expect the usual high quality production values that Modiphius is known for (just check out the comments from backers of the Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter).

mc-artNew art it planned that will reveal never before seen parts of the Mutant Chronicles universe alongside the existing fantastic images by Paul Bonner, Peter Bergting and Paolo Parente. Not only will you have this awesome rewrite, be ready for new massive campaigns, fantastic accessories and miniatures produced in conjunction with Prodos Games specifically for this roleplaying game.

If you’re at all into SciFi rpgs or want to break out of the fantasy rpg genre, I definitely recommend you take a look at this Kickstarter.  I know there are so many Kickstarters that pull at our wallets every month and you can’t give your cash to each and every one, but when it comes to “must haves”, this one ranks up there for me.  At least take the time to check it out!
