He who controls the worms controls the spice. And everyone knows that I like spicy things. That would make Dune a lot different if it was just powdered capsaicin. Anyway, those wanting to get into the sci-fi action and political intrigue (or just wear a metal bikini like Sting), you'll want to keep your December open, as Modiphius will start taking pre-orders for their Dune: Adventures in the Imperium RPG book in the 2nd week.
From the announcement:
With a pre-order launching the second week of December 2020, the Dune: Adventures in the Imperium roleplaying game challenges you to take control of Arrakis and the power of the spice Melange.
Be the first to set foot on Arrakis. The Dune: Adventures in the Imperium roleplaying game takes you into a far future beyond anything you have imagined, where fear is the mind-killer so be sure to keep your wits about you. The Imperium is a place of deadly duels, feudal politics, and mysterious abilities. Noble houses constantly politic for power, influence, and vengeance in a universe where a blade can change the fortunes of millions. Build your house, carve your place in the universe, and fight for the Imperial throne. Take your characters on a journey through the worlds of the seminal Dune sci-fi book series from Frank Herbert, Brian Herbert, and Kevin J. Anderson, inhabiting elite agents working for noble houses where mentats, swordmasters, spies, Bene Gesserit sisters, devious advisors, or even desert Fremen join together to follow your banner.
Whoever you choose to be, remember that those that control the spice control the universe.
Those who sign up to the Dune tabletop roleplaying game pre-order will be able to claim a PDF preview of the core rulebook before the Spring launch and the pre-order will be available through local retailers as well as the Modiphius webstore.
