Explore a fascinating alien world in Space 1889: Mercury!

Modiphius Entertainment has released Space 1889: Mercury, a major source book and brand new adventure from Clockwork Publishing‘s epic Space 1889 RPG.

Space 1889: Mercury is available in both print and PDF only versions on Modiphius.net and here’s the details on what you’ll find in this intriguing sourcebook.

A fascinating alien world awaits you!

Once, no man on Earth thought that life on Mercury was possible since the planet is locked with one side perpetually facing the Sun.

Scorching heat on one side and eternal darkness on the other seemed to guarantee that Mercury must be uninhabitable.

But when the inhabitants of Earth first started to voyage through the Ether, some daring explorers also turned towards Mercury—and discovered how wrong the previous assumptions about the planet had been.

A New Frontier

Because even if the one side of Mercury is dominated by vast hot deserts with lakes filled with molten metals and the other side is a seemingly lifeless waste with its giant glaciers of ice and ammonia, there is still a small strip of land between these two extremes that thrives with life. This zone where the cold and hot sides meet always stays in the same twilight and at the same temperature—this is the realm of the mighty World River, which spans the whole planet and is a lifeline for the primeval fauna and flora on both river banks.

A Hostile Land

While the few human settlements and bases were all established along the World River, the main focus of the great powers and trading com­panies remains on the hostile areas of Mercury—because that is where the true riches of the innermost planet of the Solar System lie. Lakes of molten metal await their exploitation on the Hot Side, if only there were a way to mine them. Frozen gases on the Dark Side also promise great profits, despite all risks to life and limb. It is no wonder then that it’s not just scientists that come to Mercury, but also salesmen and prospectors, just as some inventors try to construct machines that would function in environ­ments more life-threatening and hostile than anything known on Earth.

This supplement describes everything you need to know to have thrilling adventures on Mercury. Detailed descriptions of the three very different regions, infor­mation on inhabitants and visitors of Mercury, inter­esting locations, or alien (and not always animal) life—this sourcebook offers you a comprehensive survey of the planet.

To help you dive into this exciting world more easily, this book also includes an adventure concerning a race along the World River which lets you and your players explore large parts of Mercury during its course.

They are available for purchase at game retailers and paizo.com now.

Pathfinder Adventure Path: The Twilight Child (War for the Crown 3 of 6)

The Worst in Others

Dark shadows haunt the trade city of Yanmass, spreading chaos even as the city’s leaders debate which royal heir to support in the growing civil war. Their soldiers are vanishing, bandits attack without fear, and a mysterious plague of nightmares rattles the populace—are these troubles random, or part of a larger conspiracy? And what role do the mysterious Twilight Child and the cultlike following he has attracted play in the chaos?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path and includes:

• “The Twilight Child,” a Pathfinder adventure for 7th-level characters, by Ron Lundeen.
• A gazetteer of the city of Yanmass, the caravan hub of northern Taldor catering to travelers from across two continents, by Ron Lundeen.

Starfinder Adventure Path: The Thirteenth Gate (Dead Suns 5 of 6)

A Place in the Suns

The heroes journey deeper into the Vast to find the Gate of Twelve Suns, an alien megastructure consisting of a dozen stars arranged in a perfect circle. However, members of the Cult of the Devourer precede them, and the heroes must contend with the cultists for control of the alien technology found on the single planet orbiting each sun. Only by defeating these foul marauders can the heroes keep the superweapon hidden here out of the wrong hands—though the destructive zealots are far from the only threats found in the system.

This volume of Starfinder Adventure Path continues the Dead Suns Adventure Path and includes:

• “The Thirteenth Gate,” a Starfinder adventure for 9th-level characters, by Stephen Radney-MacFarland.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Nidal, Land of Shadows

A Land Chained in Shadow

Ten thousand years ago, faced with extinction, the terrified leaders of Nidal heard whispers in their minds—promises of salvation for their nation if only they’d submit their people’s bodies and souls to perpetual servitude. Those leaders’ assent transformed them into conduits for Zon-Kuthon, the god of envy and pain, and has sealed Nidal’s fate to this day.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Nidal, Land of Shadows draws back the curtain from one of Golarion’s most wicked and mysterious theocracies. Within these pages, you’ll find:

Pathfinder Adventure Path: Songbird, Scion, Saboteur (War for the Crown 2 of 6)

The county of Meratt is Taldor in a microcosm: a once-glorious land left to decay by negligent nobles. But to help secure Princess Eutropia’s bid for the throne, bold adventurers must now infiltrate her ancestral homeland and overthrow the corrupt Count Lotheed from within, gaining allies and solving problems left to fester far too long. Can they play idle noble by day and hero by night well enough to reverse the county’s fortunes, or will the weight of history’s sins be too crushing a burden?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path. War for the Crown is a major part of Paizo’s 2018 publishing program, with monthly Adventure Path volumes and support products released throughout the year.

As the political scene in the ancient kingdom of Taldor explodes into chaos, players take the roles of agents, advocates and saboteurs working for Princess Eutropia to help secure her claim to the throne and prevent the nation from collapsing into civil war. Along the way, the heroes must recover secrets of Taldor’s past — many deliberately hidden — and grow from relative nobodies to powerful politicians and spymasters in the deadliest political arena in the Inner Sea!

  • Complete monthly campaign running February 2018-July 2018
  • Golarion’s timeline thunders forward with a new destiny for Taldor in a thrilling campaign of espionage and intrigue that mixes James Bond with Game of Thrones! Your heroes decide the fate of the nation, and perhaps that of the whole Inner Sea Region!
  • Pathfinder Pawns, Poster Map Folios, and Pathfinder Battles miniatures tie-ins enrich the fantasy!

Pathfinder Player Companion: Merchant’s Manifest

Some say that money makes the world go round, and Golarion’s merchants make this a reality. Pathfinder Player Companion: Merchant’s Manifest examines commerce through the lens of important trade hubs such as Absalom, Goka, and Katapesh, where smart shoppers can secure myriad fine wares. Whether you’re aiming to purchase a rare item, hire on with a trade organization, or make your fortune on your own, this player-focused volume is your key to success.

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can be easily incorporated into any fantasy world.

Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Forest Fire

Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Forest Fire features two different scenes of fiery destruction to challenge even the most stout-hearted or foolhardy adventurer!

This portable, affordable map measures 24″ × 30″ unfolded and 8″ × 10″ folded. Designed for experienced GMs and novices alike, and usable with both dry erase and wet erase markers, Pathfinder Flip-Mats fit perfectly into any Game Master’s arsenal!
