Luther Arkwright: Parallel Lines

April 29, 2017
We're delighted to announce the release of Parallel Lines, a compilation of eight adventures for the Luther Arkwright setting.

Join Valhalla's Mjollnir Section and take part in eight separate missions investigating planar anomalies and nefarious Disruptor schemes. How far has the Disruptor Knight known as Loki gone in his bid to bring about global war? What is the source of strange psychic emanations in the New England area? How can Kyland the Warlord be stopped before he destroys Aigues Mortes? What sinister forces are at work on the Trans-Siberian Express and the airship 'Empress Katerina'?

 

All these and more form the missions of Parallel Lines, taking the team from the New England swamps to a dystopian London, via post apocalyptic landscapes, industrial hells, an undersea arcology and an Edinburgh on the verge of revolution. Each mission is self contained but can thread together to form a vast campaign with recurring characters and villains.

 

So join the war against the Disruptors; get your copy of Parallel Lines without delay!

 

172 pages, softcover, Print: $24.99 (with free PDF), PDF only $12.99. Order via the Design Mechanism Store (US, Canada and elsewhere) or Aeon Games Publishing (UK, Europe, Australia & New Zealand)

Madness & Other Colours

January 28, 2017
The monthly scenarios continue with Madness & Other Colours.

A long time ago, in an evil empire far, far away, the Emperor Sool demanded that those who offend him should be punished in a most vicious way. So were created the Sool Statuettes, and their maker was none other than Loric Nygh, a suave and cunning magician who had developed ghastly engines of sorcery for just such a purpose.

Baldomeer the Vain, a famed collector of antiquities, has supposedly come into possession of a Sool Statuette....

Mythras Revealed!
Mythras is now available. The PDF is available immediately, and the print edition can be preordered from the Design Mechanism store. The print edition should ship in approximately 3-4 weeks.

Now, obviously, everyone should buy a copy of Mythras because it’s our flagship book, but of course there is the question that everyone who owns its direct predecessor, RQ6, will ask: ‘Do I need to buy Mythras too?’ The game engine is unchanged; aside from a few tweaks here and there...
