Everything’s getting fragged around here! Modiphius has released a trio of new sourcebooks for the Fragged Empire. They span quite a diverse range. One’s all about high seas piracy in Fragged Seas. Another is more medieval fantasy in its approach in Fragged Kingdom. Finally, there’s Fragged Aeternum, taking place in a city that spans all of known existence. You can pick up all of them now.
Well, earlier today we had the announcement of the new Pathfinder unpainted minis. But what if you’re playing a bit more spacey? … That doesn’t sound quite right, but you know what I mean. What if you’ve traded in your bow and arrow for a laser blaster and your horse and wagon for a starship? Well, Modiphius is helping you out with the release of their Fragged Empire miniatures line.
While Modiphius has been going pretty strong with Mindjammer releases lately, that doesn’t mean that’s the only RPG system they’ve been working on lately. There’s a couple new Fragged Empire books out. One is a resource for characters while the other is an adventure.
It’s a hive of activity here in the office. We’ve got a lot of extra people in the office in town for the Expo this weekend. And it sounds like they’re building something in the warehouse (which is right behind my desk). Everything for the show is in “Final check” phase. That means utter chaos, of course, but in a good way. 😛
In the meantime, let’s fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories, shall we?
Today we have: Rotten Factory Miniatures – Rise of the Dark Power On Wspieram, Totentanz Miniatures Tercio May releases Posted, Last 5 Days For Aether Captains on Kickstarter, New Ancestral Ruin 32mm and 40mm base deals from Tabletop-Art, Junk Spirit Games announces By Order of the Queen, Dark Siren Available Now From Kabuki Models, Load Board Game Coming To Kickstarter Soon, 15mm WW2 and Vietnam Passenger Trays Available From Dark Art Miniatures, A new design appears From Red Panda Miniatures, Khurasan releases 15mm Soviet T-64B, Brigade Models Release 15mm Neo-Soviet Conscripts, Final Day For Aeon’s End Up On Kickstarter, Hope Board Game Coming To Kickstarter June 9th, and Cross promotion between Fragged Empire and FAITH: The Sci-Fi RPG.
Variety is the spice of life. Having lots of options, particularly in an RPG, is a great way to keep everyone involved. Players can create their characters just the way they want, and that can keep people very interested in what’s going on. Well, the folks at Fragged Empire are giving players a whole book full of options with their Protagonist Archive. There’s also minis.
War is hell. For those that are left behind after it passes by, there’s lots of rebuilding to be done. Resources are going to be at low levels, and there’s plenty of uncertainty. Such is the background for Fragged Empire, a new sci-fi RPG coming out from Modiphius. A genocidal war has ravaged the stars. Now, four surviving races must figure out how the rebuilding process will go.
Fragged Empire has just a few days left on their Kickstarter campaign. They’ve made over 5x their goal and closing in on 6x. Be sure to check out the stretch goals they’ve gone through.
From the campaign:
Another stretch goal down! All backers of at least the Digital Patron ($30aud) pledge level will be given 12 Ambient Audio Tracks to give their gaming sessions more immersion.
All audio tracks will be provided by Tim, from http://www.tabletopaudio.com/
I highly recommend you go and have a look at his work, it’s all free! Also, be sure to re-listen to the audio tracks on our main KS page 😀
We will have 12 Tracks in total, 2 will be focused towards each playable race (ambient spacecraft track for each race and a culturally specific location, eg: Corp CBD, Kaltoran Bar, Legion War zone and a Nephilim Lab) and 3 will be broadly science fiction in nature (eg: Space EVA, etc…).
Fragged Empire is a new tabletop sci-fi RPG that’s up on Kickstarter. They’ve made it over their funding goal and then some already, so it’s stretch goals for the next 33 days.
From the campaign:
Fragged Empire is a tabletop RPG setting & rules, set in a far future ‘post, post-apocalyptic’ setting. Your people have survived 100 years of brutal tribalism & savagery & are just now emerging back into space.
Set in the style of Ridley Scott’s 1979 film Alien, television series Firefly, Farscape & Blake’s 7 & computer-based role-playing games Mass Effect & Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic.
