Modiphius has announced the release of Time Becomes a Narrow Door, a new adventure for the Dune – Adventures in the Imperium RPG.
Dune: Time Becomes a Narrow Door is available in PDF only as part of the Dune Collections on Modihpius.net, Modiphius.us, and DriveThruRPG. Here are the details on this intriguing new scenario.
NOTHING EXISTS WITHOUT CAUSE
A debt owed. A missing heir. A new cult rising in the desert. Trapped between an ageless prophecy and sensitive politics, a delicate path must be walked. What is the truth? With whom will you stand?
In Time Becomes A Narrow Door, the player characters are entrusted with the task of locating the missing heir of an allied House. They must travel to a pyon village beyond the relative safety of Arrakeen, but where the situation is no less complex. Navigating the fine line between ethics and duty may prove difficult, but nothing on Arrakis is easy.
This stand-alone 20-page PDF adventure for Dune – Adventures in the Imperium is a great introduction to some of the core elements at the heart of the game. With multiple possible outcomes depending on player character decisions, Time Becomes A Narrow Door is designed to encourage roleplaying difficult choices.
You will need access to the Dune: Adventures in the Imperium Core Rulebook to run this adventure.
Modiphius has announced that the Dune – Adventures in the Imperium Core Rulebook is now available as a standalone PDF on Modiphius.net as part of the Dune Collection, and on DriveThruRPG.com.
