Some RPG news from Modiphius...
Today we're pleased to announce Modiphius has taken over publishing duties for Cold & Dark, a chilling, mature sci-fi RPG from Mischa L Thomas, which will light up sci-fi and horror fans who love titles like Aliens, Doom, Starcraft and Dead Space.
The Cold & Dark core book is now available on DriveThruRPG and if you'd like to try Cold & Dark for yourself, there's also a free Quickstart to help you get acquainted with the system.
Here's some further details:
Dying is easy, life is hard and pain is a given...
Centuries from now mankind lives on in the Sirius galaxy, an enormously vast and dense system of stars. It's a greedy industrial society run by corporations and the Governmental Industrial Complex. The onslaught of strip-mining has stirred something terrible best left buried and forgotten.
The sci-fi universe of Cold & Dark is a frightening and violent world. In the reaches of space the protagonists have to face known as well as unknown horrors.
The players take on the roles of people who have chosen to live on the edge as site engineers, corsairs and deep space salvagers. Only out there in the big empty, on the verge of disaster facing the horror, do they flourish and realise their full potential. This is sci-fi at its darkest.
Some game features.
Rules and information regarding VPS — Void Psychosis Syndrome, a mental illness which has the power to bring the whole of humanity to its knees.
We hope you enjoy this plunge into a dark and deadly sci-fi universe and look out for more great releases coming from Modiphius soon,
