Modiphius has announced that they are preparing to kick off their living playtest. If you are interested in playing in a “Living” space game this is likely going to be right up your ally. I myself have never been to big on Living games. Yet for some unknown reason, the thought of a living game in the Star Trek Universe strikes me not only as a wonderful fit it also excites me.

There is not a lot of details to give at the moment but here is what has been announced.

Our Living Playtest will begin with adventures testing the core mechanics and then will evolve into a playtest campaign where your actions will also inform an ongoing storyline.

By participating in the playtest, you are agreeing to play these adventures to provide feedback on all elements of game play through avenues we provide.

Playtesting will begin in November and will continue through into the Spring, 2017.

Player groups will need to pick a ship assignments from the following ships. U.S.S Lexington – All round experience (TOS era)

  • U.S.S Venture – All round experience (TNG era)
  • U.S.S Thunderchild – Focus on conflict (TNG era)
  • U.S.S Bellerophon – Focus on science and exploration (TNG era)

Modiphius releases Achtung! Cthulhu Secrets of the DUST crossover.

Dust is a Alternative Dieselpunk World War Two era meha setting. The war never ended as alien technology was discovered as the war was drawing down. The technology was quickly implemented on the battlefield and the war continues to this day.

Achtung! Cthulhu, Well unless you have been hiding under a rock you should know what this gem is. But just in case you have been hiding under a rock. Achtung! Cthulhu is set in World War Two as well. You face off against the Terror of Nazi scientific genius combine with terrifying occult and inhuman conspiracies connections!
Modiphius takes these two settings grabs the savage world rules and mashes them up into something blissfully terrifying! They give us an entirely new twist to the Achtung! Cthulhu setting. With options two adventures, rules for conversion to run VK armor and Walkers in your Achtung! games. As well as a whole crossover Dossier of alternate Historical and Fantastical info. You will have a lot to draw from.

This is on my short buy list as I love Mecha even Dieselpunk and the Dust Minis have always called to me. As well as you can never go wrong with Cthulhu.. Its a match that was just meant to be. With Dust having no mythos, It was an easy fit. Better yet the game is fully compatible with COC 6th and Savage Worlds rules sets. photo-original
