LIVING CAMPAIGN, LOCUTUS & GENCON!
Hi there today we’re unveiling a free Living Campaign for you to join in with our Star Trek Adventures RPG with monthly PDF missions with an epic plot. See below for more info!
First news of the exclusive Locutus of Borg miniature (see below) that has been added to the Borg Cube Collectors Edition. More villains are being added to the Borg Cube Collectors Edition as we hit waves of 500 orders with both online and retailers. There will be a later set of Star Trek Villains Miniatures featuring another version of Lore and Locutus. We’re currently sculpting a set of 10 male and female generic Starfleet alien crew from 5 species for the next wave of releases.
For those who’ve pre-ordered the corebook, collectors editions, dice sets and tokens they will be shipping next week, orders with miniatures soon after GenCon, and orders with the GM Screen, These Are The Voyages and Borg Cubes later in September as they’re still going through approvals. We’ll update closer to the time as we have sign off. Retailers will be getting the corebooks and dice around mid September with other items following through September and October.
If you’re going to GenCon come by the Modiphius Stand 2461, Hall G and check out some of the miniatures, a sample of the Borg Cube, dice and books! If you’ve been waiting for GenCon you’ll be able to pick up a corebook and dice set of your choice but we only have limited stocks coming so don’t hang around!
The Living Campaign!
Over the coming months we’re unfolding the incredible plot which we’ve been developing with New York Times Best Selling Star Trek novelist Dayton Ward and Star Trek novelist & editor Scott Pearson. Each month we’ll be adding two new missions for you to play for free – one set in the Original Series era and one in the Next Generation era. You can run your campaign in either era – the Original Series is a prequel to the main plot but is equally challenging whilst the Next Generation era leads you to an epic finale.
We’ll be asking Gamemasters to complete Captain’s Logs telling us using a simple form what happened and this feedback will be used to change the plot as we go so you’re crews could have a direct impact on the whole storyline. Dayton Ward will be writing Admiral’s reports with each new mission highlighting recent events and notable actions of specific crews.
Gamemasters can sign up to the Living Campaign with just their email by clicking the link below and you’ll get an auto reply with a link to download the documents you need and there’s some instructions below. You don’t need to re-sign up if you’re already on our playtesters list.
You’ll find several folders (depending when you have signed up):
Star Trek Living Campaign Set Up
This includes the background on the storyline and the Shackleton Expanse where the Living Campaign is set, and for the TNG crews Narendra station, a major location.
You’ll find form fillable character sheets and ship rosta, pre-generated characters that can be used for both eras as well as ship rostas for 4 ships letting you pick in which era to play and which type of ship to experience the story. Whilst we provide pre-gens this is intended for store and convention demos, we really encourage you to create your own characters for the campaign using the Lifepath system in the core book.
JUST A REMINDER – You do not have to use the pregens or our suggested ships – make your own and start your own voyages!
July 2017 Release
This is the first release in the official Living Campaign. For those involved in the huge playtest this includes some references to notable events in the last set of missions (which we’ll be updating and making available later on for us with the final version of the rules).
Simply play through the mission and we’ll send out an invite for the Gamemaster to complete the Captain’s Log at which point we’ll update the folder with the latest mission for the next month. If you have any questions post them in the forum here:
If you have friends that would like to join the Living Campaign as GM’s ask them to sign up on this page so we can make sure they get sent each new set of missions.

“Classic fantasy packed with exquisite and original touches… I’d read more fantasy if there was more fantasy like this.” – Jaine Fenn, author of the Hidden Empire series
In the last centuries of the Fifth Cycliad, a great malaise fell on the lands of humankind…
It is the far future. Our civilisation, and its glorious technological future, is gone. Only rusted ruins and tunnels beneath the ancient cities hint at what once was. In the Chronomancer’s Tower, a young apprentice stumbles upon a secret which will change the world; an ancient evil, little more than a fairy tale to frighten children, is real, and threatening to return. But is everything what it seems? Wheels turn within wheels, and political machinations wrought by selfish men and women bring the world to the brink of devastation. Can Iago and his unlikely allies unravel the knot in time, and fathom the mystery of… the Worm Within?
Some said it was the end of days. Some said it was only the beginning. These pages tell the story of that time yet to come. These are the Chronicles of Future Earth.
“Thrilling, inventive, and full of wonder.” – Howard Andrew Jones, author of The Desert of Souls.
“The start of an absolutely fantastic new series!” – GMS Magazine
We hope you enjoy expanding your universe with these Mindjammer adventures and look out for more great Mindjammer books coming your way soon!
