Space 1889: Thunders of Venus Now Available From Modiphius

The solar system in Space 1889 is much more alive than our actual one.

Also, so far, we can't just hop in a rocket and go there. But in that universe, you can. In this case, you can head to Venus, our twin sister planet. The Thunders of Venus sourcebook is now available.

Modiphius Releases Space 1889: Mercury Sourcebook

Due to being tidally locked, only one side of Mercury ever faces the sun. This side is blasted by perpetual sunlight and is thus a huge desert, filled with lakes of liquid rock. Meanwhile, on the other side, the perpetually-night side is frozen solid, with methane glaciers. But just in the middle, where the day and night side meet, in a land of perpetual twilight, life thrives. It's into this land that explorers are headed in Space 1889, and where you can go with the Mercury sourcebook, available now from Modiphius.

That's the story behind NecroMech, a new alternate-history RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
