Modiphius Entertainment, the masterminds behind the Achtung! Cthulhu franchise, has stepped out into the stars to boldly go where no man has gone before. They’ve just announced the Star Trek Adventures RPG, the first roleplaying game to be released for Star Trek in over a decade. The news reaches us just in time as Star Trek celebrates its 50th anniversary this very year.
Trekkies will not only boldly go to the final frontier, but they will shape the voyages and missions through the Star Trek Adventures living campaign playtest. Each player will experience the game differently based on the ship they are assigned to and attendees of Gen Con will have the exclusive North American opportunity to choose their ship, as well as claim a free Captain Kirk or Captain Picard miniature, while supplies last, when they register for the playtest. Registration will take place daily at the Modiphius booth #2737 at Gen Con this year.
Star Trek Adventures will make use of the Modiphius 2d20 game system designed by Jay Little . Modiphius is also sculpting an accompanying Star Trek miniature figure line, the first to be produced in 17 years. Both resin and metal 32mm figures will feature classic Star Trek characters and crews, boarding parties, and away teams. Geomorphic tile maps of burning Federation ships, mysterious colonies and embattled Klingon cruisers will set the scene for dramatic new voyages in the Final Frontier.
Further sign-ups for the living playtest will launch starting in late August on the Modiphius Star Trek site and European fans will have the chance to grab their Picard or Kirk miniature at the Modiphius booth at Essen-Spiel in Germany and at Dragonmeet in the UK. The playtest will officially launch in the fall. More details on the release are coming soon, and if you’re attending Gen Con you can find out more at the Modiphius booth, so come out and sign up!
