While this is the digital age, I still like actually having a book in my hand when I can. Yes, I have plenty of pdf rulebooks on my hard drives, but there's just something about actually holding a book that can't be replicated or beat. If you agree, you'll be happy to know that the Haqqislam and Ariadna books for the Infinity RPG from Modiphius are now available in print forms.
The Haqqislamite movement found traction in a world riven by political turmoil and economic crises. Its greatest messenger, Farhad Khadivar, advocated a new ideology that wove together the many complex threads of the old into a New Islam. This philosophical and theological revision of long-standing interpretations, which shed intolerance and oppressive dogma in favour of humanism and a concept known as the Search for Knowledge, laid the foundations for a golden age of reforms and advancements that propelled a nation across the stars.
Since finding a home on Bourak, Haqqislam has experienced a rebirth of artistic and scientific pursuance that is the envy of their rivals. Gardeners refine terraforming techniques that have reshaped an arid world, doctors perform miracles with pioneering surgery, and biochemists cultivate new synthetic wonders with Silk. Though often considered one of the smallest of the G5 nations, Haqqislam remains unrivalled in several arenas.
A Silk monopoly and extensive trade routes have spawned a nation of traders that often draw the envy and ire of competitors, though the Sword of Allah stands ever ready to smite the enemies of the Word. With new insights into the New Islam and its proponents, this sourcebook will take you further into the Search for Knowledge than ever before!
The first great expedition to the stars, Project: DAWN, began with enormous enthusiasm and unprecedented collaboration, but ended in tragedy and isolation. Despite being severed from support, and certain in the knowledge they had been abandoned, the pioneers from the colony ship Ariadna refused to waver from their purpose. Alone and forsaken, they bent themselves to the task of surviving on a cold and hostile world.
Since then, the people of Dawn have faced down the bloodthirsty Antipodes and reforged themselves through the Separatist Wars. More recently, following their rediscovery by humanity at large, they fought off the greedy tendrils of the hypercorps during the Ariadnan Commercial Conflicts before accepting a seat amongst the G-5 nations. For Dawn is rich in Teseum, that most precious of metals for which humanity’s lust will never be sated, providing Ariadnans with the ultimate bargaining chip.
Renowned for being proud, forthright, and hardy, Ariadnans will happily brawl amongst themselves if given the opportunity. The other nations, however, have learnt the wisdom in not provoking the hornet’s nest, as they soon pull together to doggedly defend their homeland and ideals. This sourcebook will allow you to experience Dawn as never before!
