Legends of Avallen Gets a Quickstart Guide

Legends of Avallen - Quickstart Guide

Modiphius has announced the release of the Legends of Avallen – Quickstart Guide, a FREE PDF which enables you to sample the RPG which is inspired by an era of Celtic mythology in Roman Britain.

The Quickstart launches on Modphius.netModiphius.US, and DriveThruRPG and if you like what you see, you can also order copies of the marvellous print core rulebook which is available from Modiphius.net and has just arrived and started shipping from Modiphius.US. Here are the details on the Quickstart.

Inspired by Celtic mythology in Roman Britain, Legends of Avallen is a roleplaying game that takes you to a mystical island occupied by faithless invaders. For now, peace has been called but it balances on a sword’s edge as all seek to tame the Otherworld—a parallel realm home to fae, demons, dragons, and gods.

On Avallen, the greatest legends rise from humble beginnings, and yours will be no different. The shepherd ordained as a Druid, the bard reborn as a Fae Touched, the thief who found glory as a Gladiator. What tales will be told of you? Will you mend the rifts between worlds, or delve into their depths for fame, fortune, and power?

This free 43-page PDF Quickstart Guide features:

  • An introduction to the game world and the mystical island of Avallen
  • The basic rules of the game where a standard deck of playing cards is used to resolve actions, including tempting fate and complications
  • A comprehensive rules reference sheet
  • 5 pre-made characters
  • The complete apprentice-level adventure: ‘Quest for The Sealing Stone’!

In the full version of the game (available here [US and UK link, depending on store]), you’ll find much more, including character creation rules; twenty martial and magic schools; ten legendary paths; as well as rules for magic, rituals, conflicts, chases, journeys, equipment, crafting, and an extensive GM’s guide with a Celtic bestiary!

It’s Roman and Germanic Heroes vs. The Great Old Ones in Modiphius’ Cohors Cthulhu

Cohors Cthulhu

Modiphius Entertainment has announced a brand new range of tabletop games for its flagship IP “Against the God Themselves”: Cohors Cthulhu. This new cinematic tabletop RPG, narrative co-operative wargame, fiction line, and miniatures range is set in the same universe as the successful Achtung! Cthulhu 2D20 RPG, and expands upon it, this time introducing adventurers to an era of daring gladiators, valiant centurions, and brave Germanic heroes.

Cohors Cthulhu details a secret war being fought on the fringes of the Roman Empire. Far up on the Northern border, Romans and Germanic tribes clash in the dark and forbidden forests that cover these lands. Soon, however, they’ll have to band together to stem the invading forces of an insidious cult and its swarm of abhorrent creatures from the deep cosmos. Modiphius has assembled a rockstar creative team led by Modiphius’ Chief Creative Officer Chris Birch, including Lead Writer Douglas Seacat, RPG Lead Writer Matt Goetz, authors John Houlihan and Nick Brown, Modiphius 2d20 Developer Nathan Dowdell, and artists including Bjorn Barends and Phroilan Gardner

“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.”

 — Marcus Aurelius (Roman Emperor A.D. 161-180 A.D)

Cohors Cthulhu puts players on the front lines of the known world in the 2nd century, using fire, steel, and ancient technology to fight Eldritch horrors!

The first major release for the Cohors Cthulhu roleplaying game will drop players into the Roman frontier town of Laurium, the archetypal walled fort that sits on the border between civilization and the mysterious, foreboding lands. Smoky taverns filled with dangerous vagabonds swirl with gossip and whispers of terrifying creatures, strange ruins, and haunted forests in 2nd century Northern Europe. Barbaric Germanic tribesmen prowl the thick woodland, but are they the only thing the Romans should be worried about? And how do these events relate to ancient Atlantis and the colossal war that would tear Europe apart two millennia in the future?

Modiphius Entertainment has multiple projects planned for this universe, including:

  • A cinematic RPG driven by the 2d20 system also seen in Modiphius’ Dune, Star Trek, Dishonored, and Fallout roleplaying games. This is based on the Achtung! Cthulhu edition of 2d20 and will feature new systems to help groups start playing the moment they open the book. 
  • A narrative wargame designed from the ground up to be playable solo and cooperatively. The game will also get you on the table playing from page 1, while a campaign will unveil the full story of this epic secret war. 
  • A complete miniatures line scaled for 28mm to be compatible with other major historical lines will provide plenty of heroes, creatures, and strange factions battling for the ancient world. 
  • A fiction series including a complete COHORS CTHULHU novel and an anthology of short stories following the exploits of a host of key characters seen throughout the products.

Key Features of COHORS CTHULHU

  • Et Tu, Cthulhu?: A rich setting based in real history, real locations, and real cultures meets the fantastical mythology inspired by H.P. Lovecraft 
  • Explore, Investigate, Interact: Fight deep in the misty forests, on foundering galleys, explore dangerous Atlantean ruins, or run the gauntlet of Roman society as you uncover vast conspiracies and contend with ancient mysteries that threaten the fabric of the universe itself!
  • 2-Tali-20: Modiphius’ patented 2d20 in-house tabletop roleplaying game system keeps gameplay smooth and the cinematic action rolling with an innovative set of narrative-driven rules and mechanics
  • By Spear or Gladius: Whether players prefer the strict discipline and rigid organization of the Legions or the wild bravery and berserker brutality of the many tribes throughout the empire, they’ll need to work together to defeat a sinister cult and its mythos allies. 
  • Unreality Beckons: Tap into powerful magics, ancient lost technologies, and eldritch powers – the heroes will need to draw on many resources to help them hold out versus the vast cosmic forces arrayed against them. 
  • The Empire Must Expand: Major setting expansions will follow the stories of the ever-growing threat of the Outer Gods as they infect other parts of the Roman Empire like Brittania, Aegyptus, Byzantine, and the Eternal City of Rome herself.

Modiphius Entertainment Donates $35,000 to African Wildlife Protection Organization — National Park

Modiphius Nation Park Rescue

Modiphius Entertainment has shared the results of some of their recent charitable activities. Through a massive sale of their original Achtung! Cthulhu products and a Star Trek Adventures Humble Bundle, Modiphius raised $35,000 for National Park Rescue, a charity devoted to supporting African national parks and the wildlife they protect.

In November of 2021, Modiphius put the last of their stock of older Achtung! Cthulhu products on sale in order to make room for the new, 2D20 version of the game and product line. All proceeds from this sale were donated to National Park Rescue and as part of this, Modiphius matched sales of the final stocks of the books dollar for dollar. In total just over $18,000 was raised which Modiphius topped off to $20,000.

An additional $15,000 was raised through the Star Trek Adventures RPG Humble Bundle that was offered from December 17, 2021, until January 14, 2022.  With the total amount adding up to $35,000, Modiphius and National Park Rescue will be putting the donation towards a range of key projects that will have a major impact on the ground. First off, important repairs to the facilities will bring the vehicle bay and workshop back to working order to better service the fleet of patrol vehicles and ranger equipment. A new park entrance will help bring pride to the people of the surrounding communities, many of whom work in the park providing essential services, and Modiphius is working with the team to identify key needs in the communities for further funds.

National Park Rescue differentiates themselves from many high-profile conservation organizations by being a direct action organization. The organization designs and implements their own projects, and holds themselves accountable for any results. This includes being responsible for maintaining and repairing all equipment; such as vehicles, GPS units, radios, and equipment used by their Wildlife Authority partners. The structure of their organization, lack of any permanent office, and minimization of any overhead, ensures all donations actually make it to the front line.

National Park Rescue works with Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (ZimParks), who own and are responsible for the management of the parks. They are almost exclusively staffed by people that live close to their operations, with more than 75% of staff coming from villages literally bordering the park.

As the Luftwaffe’s bombs start to rain down during another night raid, can the agents find the rite’s location, foil the plans of this sinister cult, and prevent the return of a native horror which has lain dormant down the ages?
