Free John Carter of Mars Quickstart Adventure Available From Modiphius

"Try before you buy." That's a motto I follow as much as possible in my life. I simply don't have the time, money, or space to get every game that is released (and unless you're Elon Musk or Carrot Top, I doubt you do, either). So that's why I love when a company puts out a free version of their game rules to check out. In this case, it's Modiphius that's released a free Quickstart adventure for their John Carter of Mars RPG. You get some of the rules, as well as a look at how an adventure is laid out. It's a perfect place to see if going on further adventures in Barsoom is for you.

Modiphius To Create Games Based on John Carter series of books

If John Conner can get some new games with him in it, then other literary Johns can, too. As such, Modiphius is going to be making a couple new games based on the John Carter series of books (written by Tarzan writer Edgar Rice Burroughs). You might have seen the movie also based on the series of books (though considering the box-office returns on it, you probably didn't. I didn't, either). Modiphius has announced two games based on the material: an RPG and a board game (plus some collectible miniatures thrown in as well).
