Mutant Chronicles RPG reboot by Modiphius
« on: January 31, 2014, 06:26:13 AM »
Hi guys i think some of you would like to know that the Mutant Chronicles RPG is back

(got this from Dakka)

Well Prodos have (just about) brought the wargame back from the grave

Modiphius is now trying to do the same for the RPG

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/modiphius/mutant-chronicles-3rd-ed-rpg

The Mutant Chronicles Kickstarter is a re-boot of the amazing techno-fantasy roleplaying game from the same team who produced the successful Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter.

We’re raising money to pay for stunning full colour, hard cover books for the settings and rule books starting with the rules and core setting book Mutant Chronicles: Dark Symmetry. We plan to deliver the core book PDF in July, and the print version in August. Backers will receive pre-print PDF's to assist with proof reading in June.



Mutant Chronicles was one of the bigger names in gaming in the 1990's with the Doom Trooper collectible card game translated in to 16 languages, three boardgames, two video games, the massive Warzone miniatures game and the Mutant Chronicles 1st and 2nd Edition roleplaying games with more recently a Hollywood movie, Fantasy Flight Games pre-painted miniature game and last year the reboot of Warzone by Prodos Games. Watch our video for examples of the stunning art from the world.

The Mutant Chronicles story took you on this full throttle dieselpunk sci-fi ride through a solar system beset by corporate intrigue and the invasion of a terrible dark alien force. With technology failing due to the insidious effects of the Dark Symmetry humankind must fight back against the Dark Legion hordes whilst dealing with in-fighting and conspiracy from within.

The Solar System is a roaring mayhem of death and war. The surfaces of the inner planets have been swept clean by the violent onslaught of the dark legions storming hordes of Nepharites, Razides, Pretorian Stalkers and Undead Legionaries. In the enormous cities of the far and distant future, heretics devoted to the destruction of humankind stalk the dark backstreets and gloomy alleys spreading their teachings of greed, jealously and war [From the 2nd Edition Back Cover]



Here's the first few Stretch goals! As you'll see below we next want to fund the Corporate Guides, the next main setting book: DARK LEGION which carries the story forward some 700 years to the time of the original roleplaying game and then DARK SOUL (the in depth guide to the Apostles and Dark Legion). We'll be upgrading the main setting books to full cover hardcover later on. Remember - if we unlock hardcover, full colour versions of the books, your pledge or Add On is automatically upgraded for free!

I'm excited about this. We'll see if they end up funding like Achtung! Cthulhu. If they get closer to that level I may end up having to scrape some money together to back it.

I am a GM. I have played many systems but I am currently focused only on Mutant Chronicles 2nd Edition.
I never use minuatures - the sketeches and descriptions for skirmishes are enough for me.

I am interested in changes in mechanics - in my opinon the minis have nothing in common with RPG.

As far as I know the mechanics is heavly changed. Can you confirm that?

New minis is up on KS, these are some kind of agents but to me they are to generic. Its nothing that shows that they are from the Mutant Chronoicles universe.

They need to have separate gun hands so there can be a sprue with all the Corps handguns and/or machine pistols.

I'm in for this KS as I played the original MC years ago, I like the updates up to now and the figures are looking interesting I like the corporate agents, will be interesting to see what they put in each faction set, I wonder what the outcome was of the poll they did for the figures in each set?

Edit these are the sets they will produce
    * Bauhaus - Noble Officer, Templar, Venussian Ranger
    * Imperial - Blood Beret, ISF Field Agent, Wolfbane
    * Capitol - Luna P.D. Detective, Free Marine, Veteran with attitude
    * Mishima - Ronin, Demon Hunter, Shadow Walker
    * Cybertronic - Technologist, Attila, Field Asset
    * Brotherhood - Keeper of the Art, Inquisitor, Sacred Warrior
    * Corporate Agents (5 figure set)
    * Heretics (5 figure set)
    * Dark Symmetry Creatures: Cable Marionettes (3 figure set)

To be honest it a little disappointing with the selection as I thought they would go for some figures that aren't or wont be available via the Warzone Resurrection game miniatures
