With the Kickstarter racing past £100,000 the team unveiled that British artist Wayne Reynolds (Pathfinder, Dungeons & Dragons, Rogue Trader) is going to be painting the cover and a full Savage Worlds conversion of the Mutant Chronicles corebook which will be released in PDF with a later print run. Backers choosing the Add On will also get a discount on the print run.
Modiphius plans a big redesign of the original Mutant Chronicles RPG, one of the biggest gaming brands of the 90's created by Target Games (now Paradox Entertainment), with gorgeous full colour books, fresh new content and art to ensure Mutant Chronicles returns with a bang.
Awesome new graphic art will reveal never before seen parts of the Mutant Chronicles universe alongside the existing fantastic images by Paul Bonner, Peter Bergting and Paolo Parente. There will be huge campaigns, high quality accessories and miniatures produced in conjunction with Prodos Games, (who re-launched the Warzone miniatures game) specifically for the roleplaying game.
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]
Modiphius filled in the gaps in the original storyline, expanded the backstory and plotted secret events that will carry your adventures through a 1000 years of future history. Now players can adventure during the early days of the Dark Symmetry with investigations of foul cults and technology turning on mankind, through to the brutal Corporate Wars and then fight the Dark Legion as they pour forth from their citadels across the colonies.
