Mindjammer Press and Modiphius Entertainment are delighted to announce the launch of Mindjammer Press’s brand new Kickstarter for THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH – COSMIC FANTASY ROLEPLAYING IN THE POST-HISTORICAL AGE. Set in the far, far future of our own planet Earth, on a world grown strange with time, adventure in the Venerable Autocracy of Sakara, oldest of the Springtide Civilisations, a land of demons and sorcery, mouldering ruins and perilous ancient technologies, monsters and mysterious dimensions.

In the last centuries of the Fifth Cycliad, a great malaise began to descend on the lands of humankind. The great civilisations of the Earth, which for aeons had seemed on the verge of slumber, now finally began to rot from within. From the edges of the world, the ever-present enemies drew close, their hungry claws poised to tear apart the delicate flesh of a fruit a hundred millennia in the ripening. And all around, a cry arose for Heroes, to stand against the dying of the light, and save the world from the sins of its past.

THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH is written and designed by Sarah Newton, award-winning author of MINDJAMMER – THE ROLEPLAYING GAME, MONSTERS & MAGIC, ACHTUNG CTHULHU, and more. Using a heavily-modified version of the Fate Core system, tailored specifically to the lethal, high-action adventures of cosmic fantasy, it’s a gorgeous standalone game.

You can find THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH at Kickstarter here. There’s even a free 60-page downloadable Quickstart and Introductory Adventure, THE SWALLOWER OF SOULS, so you can try out the rules and setting.

Some said it was the end of days. Some said it was only the beginning. These adventures tell the history of that time yet to come. These are the Chronicles of Future Earth…

Cthulhu, Monsters & Magic) and José Luis Porfirio (Qin, Kuro), this gorgeous full-colour book is the first in a series of releases for this exciting and action-packed game.



It called to me with its ancient gods and enmities, its mysterious quests, desert caravans, and dusty souks. I was tracking a djinn, one of the worst, a marid risen in rebellion against Marduk the Dragon. In the depths of the desert I had a vision of a thousand warriors crossing this scorching land. Here everything is in motion, wind and sand, and the night has a thousand colours. Everything is struggle – even for those who seek a peaceful life…”




You bear the Dragon Mark. You are destined for great things, adventures where you’ll write the history of the world.

In a land of mysteries and magic, where East meets West on the burning sands of Jazirat, your future awaits.

Discover a whole new world, confront djinn, gods, and dragons, and take your place among the heroes of the age!





Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked is a fantasy roleplaying game set in a world of Arabian Nights, Argonauts, and Adventure. Inspired by the One Thousand and One Nights, ancient Greek myth, and Crusading legends, it’s where history meets myth, and where legends are born. The book contains:

  • A whole new world of history, legend, and myth – a profound and original setting.
  • Simple yet flexible rules encouraging player inventiveness up to epic levels of play.
  • Peoples, gazetteer, and bestiary for the land of Jazirat, inspired by Middle-Eastern history and myth.
  • Gorgeous maps and full-colour artwork.

We hope you enjoy this exciting new roleplaying game, which joins other Mindjammer Press products such as Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game and the Monsters & Magic RPG. Grab your scimitar, mount your camel, and enter the djinn-haunted ruins in the desert wastes. Adventure awaits!


Join us on the Capharnaum Kickstarter!


Hi everyone! Right now Mindjammer Press is running the Capharnaum Kickstarter, a new campaign to fund the production of the English-language version of this gorgeous and action-packed fantasy roleplaying game, originally published in French by Studio Deadcrows. Arabian Nights-style adventure in a fantasy world of crusaders, ancient empires, world-striding heroes, and mysterious draconic powers, Capharnaum comes as a beautiful 400-page hardback core book, and a complete line of supplements, adventures, screen, and support material which I’d like to ask you to help us fund. If you’re a Harryhausen pulp fantasy fan, if you love games like Exalted, Seventh Sea, Legend of the Burning Sands, Al Qadim, or if you’ve just a yen to own your very own clockwork owl, ride a flying carpet, or rub a magic lamp and make a bargain with a djinn, check out this fantastic game and support the Kickstarter campaign today by clicking here or on the image above. There’s even a free quickstart adventure to get playing right away!

As a book, Capharnaum is a gorgeous artefact – beautiful and evocative artwork, and a profound and fascinating setting that riffs off historical and mythic themes to create a compelling game world. It also has a custom system which really hits our sweet spot: simple, elegant, and quick to learn, it’s also extremely flexible in play, and allows for some real depth with increasing system mastery. It’s been a sparkling gem on the French RPG scene for ten years, and has recently celebrated its decade with a second edition, and I’m very chuffed that Mindjammer Press has the opportunity to bring it to an English-language audience.

In Capharnaum, you’ll find a fantasy Middle Sea surrounded by lands and empires reminiscent of mythical and historical ones of our own world, from ancient Agalanthia, a little like ancient Greece or Rome, through a Hispanic Aragon and its new Quarterian religion, the Shiradim of Capharnaum, and the Arabian-like Saabi. But the heart of the action starts in Jazirat, a peninsula similar to ancient Arabia, and coveted by all the world’s realms…

But your characters are above and outside these conflicts. You play one of the Dragon-Marked, individuals from any nation or tribe, marked by the mystical dragons, servitors of the gods, for a mysterious destiny. You find yourself thrown together with people who might otherwise be your foes, working together to change the world… Will you heed the call to adventure?

The Capharnaum campaign is running right now, finishing on the 17th December, so please check out the campaign page where there’s a video, lots more information about the game, and even a free 44-page downloadable Quickstart adventure. Also, as ever, I’m available for Q&A on the Kickstarter comments page, and to assist with anything you need. It was such an experience running the Mindjammer Kickstarter campaign two years ago, it’s been totally life-changing and has led to some awesome friendships and – I hope you’ll agree – a fantastic series of supplements and scenarios of ever-increasing quality which shows no signs of stopping! I’m really excited to be doing it again, and I hope you’ll join me and everyone at the campaign to explore this spectacular FRP game line and setting.

    Mindjammer novel cover by Paul Bourne

    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!

    • “Thrilling adventure and mystery wrapped up with an inventive, mind-bending look at mankind’s future.”

    Greetings. Thank you Sarah for the great rpg gems! My only concern is that we can’t find the physical products in order to buy them. I’m interested in Monsters and Magic rpg. Can you use just a bit of your “author” powers to get one? i would gladly buy from any contacts you can recommend me.

    Dear Sarah

    I am writing you to let you know that I really liked your Achtung! Cthulhu: Three Kings adventure.
    Personally I’ve gotten so used to running adventures dealing with 100% fictional events and settings, that I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that a lot of people and locations in Three Kings were actually real! You must have done a lot of research when you started writing this. I for one had trouble with finding a lot of information on Frantisek Moravec. His wikipedia article is very brief and most other information I managed to find on the internet were all in Czech. It was a bit frustrating for me, as I had to play him during the mission briefing scene and I was getting the feeling I couldn’t accurately portray him because I knew so little about him. Luckily the players didn’t ask him any personal questions and stayed focused on the mission at hand.

    In any case, I ran the adventure last weekend, and although several players were a bit skeptic at first, everyone really enjoyed themselves.
    And since we’ve recently started recording our play sessions, we’ve put it on Youtube.
    We were thinking you might get a kick out of it, so I’d humbly like to present you the following link:

    Hopefully we did your product justice and if you like it, you could perhaps share this video with others.

    Hi Sarah, I can’t seem to find the Mindjammer FATE supplement anywhere in PDF. Also, I’m a bit confused as to whether it has been expanded in the “Expansionary Era” version that I’ve found on a few sites, i.e.

    I’ve also found a physical copy in my local game store, but I’m holding off buying in case there is an updated version in the works.

    Can you shed some light on what the current status is?

    • August 17, 2013 12:30 pm

      Hi there! My upcoming “Mindjammer” 2nd edition roleplaying game is actually a complete standalone game. It’ll be a 300-page hardback, and uses the Fate Core (4th edition) rules. “Mindjammer – The Expansionary Era” was the updated version of the 1st edition supplement for Starblazer Adventures which Cubicle 7 was going to publish, but which got delayed to the extent that when the time came round it made sense to produce a complete new game using Fate Core. It’ll be published by Mindjammer Press in the next few months – we’re in art direction and peer review right now, shortly going into layout. There’ll be *much* more in this new game – much more about the setting, genurgy, characters, hypertech, the Commonality, and a lot more about the transhuman element. All new artwork, and a much more “modern transhuman sci-fi feel”. I’ll be posting here and at the Mindjammer Press website with previews in the coming month. Thanks! 🙂

    I have checked out the Mindjammer preview pdf, and am quite impressed. How tied in is the setting to the FATE mechanics? I have Starblazer, but have doubts whether the system would work for me (and just as importantly, my group). I am on my second read-through of Heroquest 2 (still trying to grok it, but getting more and more inspired and convinced it’s my Holy Grail of Gaming Systems), so I am wondering how easy it would be to port.

    Yes, I also realise that with HQ2, you convert the setting, not the system … but go ahead, sell me on Mindjammer as an HQ setting 🙂

    • February 26, 2012 6:05 pm

      Hi there 🙂

      I’m a huge fan of HeroQuest – and although I’ve never used it to play Mindjammer, I know it would be no trouble at all to port, especially if you’re using the 2nd edition HeroQuest rules. You’d probably need to think about things like Technopsi as keywords, likewise cultures, and so on. It’d be very cool to try and stat out sentient starships in HQ2; I’m also intrigued to see how cultural conflict would play out – the impact of player character groups working for instrumentalities like Sci Force and conducting meme attacks on cultures, etc, would be great fun. The only thing I could think requiring a certain amount of thinking is the representation of organizations and cultures, etc; HeroQuest tracks damage, etc, on characters very well, but doesn’t overtly track damage to “non-player campaign objects”. That might need a little thought – and, in fact, I may have a think about it! Thanks for the question! 😀

    • November 28, 2011 1:15 pm

      Very nice to meet you, too, Andrew – I hope you had as good a Dragonmeet as I did! 🙂

      If you’re still interested in a copy of Mindjammer, paperback copies are now shipping from the (Cubicle 7 Webstore, and orders include complimentary PDF and epub ebook versions.

      And hopefully we’ll be able to get you fixed up with the new edition of Starblazer shortly! 🙂
