Have you always wanted to play a modern science-fiction roleplaying game – with consistent yet futuristic science, virtual realities, sentient starships, realistic aliens, and mysterious worlds, yet action-packed and filled with adventure? Mindjammer is your answer. It’s a tabletop roleplaying game about heroic adventurers in the galaxy of the far future. With its hyper advanced technology humankind has spread to the stars, discovering ancient lost colonies and mysterious alien worlds. Using the popular and award-winning Fate Core rules, Mindjammer lets you play hardened mercenaries, cunning traders, steely-nerved pilots, intrigue-filled spies and culture agents, aliens, divergent hominids, artificial life forms, and even sentient starships.
Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game is a 496-page hardback with gorgeous artwork and astrography by industry stalwarts such as Jason Juta, Eric Lofgren, Andreas Schroth, and Ian Stead. It’s a standalone game with everything you need to play, including innovative new rules for alien life, planets, and star systems, organisations, culture conflict, hypertech, starmaps, background material, virtual realities and techno-psionic powers, and much more.
“We’re really excited to be releasing Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game,” said Sarah Newton, co-owner of Mindjammer Press and author of the game. “Chris Birch (Modiphius) and I have worked together on many titles, including the ENnie-award winning Achtung! Cthulhu and first edition Mindjammer, and the ENnie-nominated Legends of Anglerre. It’s great to be teaming up now to bring Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game and its line of supplements and fiction to a wide and discerning audience, using Modiphius’s proven industry expertise and excellent track record. We’re looking forward to a regular release of Mindjammer products with Modiphius, beginning with the core rulebook this May.”
“Mindjammer was first introduced as an incredible supplement for the enormous Starblazer Adventures RPG and it’s fantastic that Sarah has now developed the universe into such an incredible setting and brought it bang up to date with the Fate Core ruleset. I know Fate and sci-fi fans are going to find one of the best and most comprehensive roleplaying games at their fingertips,” said Chris Birch, Publisher of Modiphius.

Mindjammer is the first novel in the Mindjammer series, available now from Mindjammer Press! By ENnie award-winning RPG author Sarah Newton, it’s an action-packed tale of mind-bending technologies in the unimaginably far future, as the human race struggles to fulfil its transhuman destiny.
In the seventeenth millennium, the New Commonality of Humankind is expanding, using newly-discovered faster-than-light travel to rediscover lost worlds colonised in the distant past. It’s a time of turmoil, of clashing cultures, as civilizations shudder and collapse before the might of a benevolent empire ten millennia old.
In the Solenine Cluster, things are going from bad to worse, as hyper-advanced technologies destabilise a society in chaos. Thaddeus Clay and his special ops team from the Security and Cultural Integrity Instrumentality are on the trail of the Transmigration Heresy. But what they find is something beyond even their imagining – and something which could tear the whole Commonality apart!
- “Complex, gripping, and the most original sci-fi you’re likely to get…”
- G*M*S Magazine
- “A very exciting and intelligently-written novel that should be on the reading list of every SF fan!”
- Stargazer’s World
- “William Gibson-like in the intensity of the ideas it introduce… a heady mixture of action, crunchy science fiction elements and that perennial cyberpunk or transhuman question: what does human mean? … Science-fiction may have a new star forming in its firmament.”
- Shores of Night
- “Thrilling adventure and mystery wrapped up with an inventive, mind-bending look at mankind’s future.”
- Howard Andrew Jones, author of The Desert of Souls
