Lovecraftian Horror Meets Ancient Rome in Modiphius’ Cohors Cthulhu, Coming Soon to Kickstarter

Cohors Cthulhu

Modiphius Entertainment has announced that the Kickstarter campaign for Cohors Cthulhu, a 2d20 tabletop RPG set in a Lovecraftian version of Ancient Rome, is launching on October 3, 2023! The campaign includes the Players Guide, Gamemaster’s Guide, a campaign book set in Germania, Gamemaster Screen, and the first wave of physical and 3D-printable miniatures.

The Kickstarter campaign introduces the first stage in the vast Cohors Cthulhu storyline, set in Germania, with future expansions taking adventures to Rome, Aegyptus, Britannia, and the Eastern Empire. Novels are planned to further expand the Cohors Cthulhu world, telling the story of the heroes caught up in the chaos.

The Player’s Guide includes the full core rules, character creation, and more, while the Gamemaster’s Guide includes all the rules for GMs to muster ancient mysteries, foul cults, dangerous creatures and true cosmic horror set in the age of the Roman Empire. A complete Germania campaign offers GMs a series of adventures set in the troubled frontier region. Alongside other accessories, two sets of dice will be available to choose from: a player’s set featuring a granite design, and a Hidden War set featuring a blue crystal effect.
Modiphius will also offer both physical and 3D-printable miniatures with a selection of 28mm scale characters from across the empire along with some heroic legionaries. The range is compatible with other popular historical ranges, and will expand with the launch of the Cohors Cthulhu miniatures game following the launch of the RPG.
Set in the same timeline as Achtung! CthulhuCohors Cthulhu expands the Against The Gods Themselves universe being developed by Modiphius Entertainment. Players will take on the roles of diverse heroes from across the Roman Empire and put aside prejudices to make allies of former enemies in order to confront Eldritch horrors. Powerful as these adversaries may be, there is a reason humanity is coveted by entities that can swallow entire stars — their limitless potential threatens even the gods.

It falls to players to achieve that potential by plundering forgotten ruins, seeking strange allies, exploring untamed forests where cultists prowl, and delving lost temples and forgotten cities, all to empower themselves against the Mythos. They may find weapons such as Atlantean relics, become transformed by Hyperborean armories, or earn the blessings of more benevolent gods.
And so, ordinary mortals can aspire to rise as demigods and make a stand against the darkness. There are many epic tales yet to be told, including yours…
Players can get their first look at Cohors Cthulhu via the Quickstart Guide, and sign–up for the latest news, teasers, fiction, and more by visiting www.cohorscthulhu.com.

Celebrate the World of Fire and Ice by Entering It Yourself! Roleplaying Combat Board Game Debuts on Kickstarter!

Fire and Ice Miniatures Adventure Game

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a collaboration with two historic artistic families, as the world of Fire and Ice makes its way to the tabletop with a board game giving fans the chance to roleplay and have fun in its wondrous world. Gamers are able to support and reserve their copy of the game right now on Kickstarter, with exclusive add-ons and early bird extras!

Fire and Ice released in theaters 40 years ago as the legendary team-up between animation innovator Ralph Bakshi and the “Godfather” of fantasy artwork Frank Frazetta. Additionally, the screenplay was written by Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway. Dynamite has brought back this exciting world and mysterious characters for a new comic series, and the celebration continues in this new game.

Fire and Ice Miniatures Adventure Game Kickstarter Exclusive

The world of Fire and Ice exists in a precarious state between its many tribes and clans, but it all ratchets up when Lord Nekron decides to destroy the kingdom of fire. His black magic has created an unstoppable glacier that demolishes everything in its path, forcing relocation for many under King Jarol’s rule. The war drums are building, and it will take three unique heroes in Princess Teegra, Larn the Warrior, and the mysterious Darkwolf to turn the tide.

The Fire and Ice game features a “tactical skirmish” design and can be enjoyed by two or more players. The heroes of Firekeep battle the diabolical forces of Icepeak, as they navigate across multiple maps. Through usage of cards, dice, and the intricately designed figures at the forefront, players can recreate the iconic combat from the rotoscoping animated classic. The game’s systems also open up with “Rules-Lite” mechanics giving experimental players the chance to continue their adventure or make their own narratives through roleplay.

The core game includes a set of 12 miniatures, including amazing sculpts of the central fan favorite characters of Darkwolf, Teegra, and Larn. But it doesn’t stop there! Fans who back the game itself in the campaign in the first few days will additionally receive an exclusive figure of the Subhuman Priestess. And through the support of fans, Dynamite alongside the Frazetta and Bakshi families hope to unlock 12 more miniatures by climbing through stretch goals, including the vile Lord Nekron himself. Players could be getting as many as 25 incredible figures, plus other additions!

Fire and Ice Miniatures Adventure Game

In addition to the dozen figures, the core box is huge and includes a handy extensive rulebook, six character cards, 54 event cards, 12 activity cards, six 10-sided dice with fire and ice designs, over 200 token markers, and the four region game boards.

Backers on Kickstarter can check out several additional fun extras to get alongside their game. A limited edition set of nine trading cards features some of the biggest names in artwork from Dynamite’s revival of the franchise, including Bill Sienkiewicz, Leonardo Manco, Joseph Michael Linsner, and of course Frank Frazetta himself. The stunning Sienkiewicz piece is also available as a high-quality lithograph, with a signed option. Premium metal cover and CGC graded editions of the new comic title’s first issue are also available.
