At Gen Con, I caught up with Chris Birch. We chatted about Star Trek and how they are working with Rick Steinbeck, Conan, and Fall Out.
I always have a blast when I talk to Chris.
Today we’re really pleased to bring you four new releases for the Coriolis – The Third Horizon roleplaying game, with a Artifacts & Technology, Hamurabi, Mahanji Oasis and Aram’s Ravine supplements, all releasing individually as well as in a combined bundle featuring all four.
Designed to expand and enhance your adventures in the Coriolis – The Third Horizon roleplaying game, which has been described as “the Arabian Nights in Space” these four supplement describe new technology, settlements, NPCs and adventures to be found in The Third Horizon.
Chris Birch of Modiphius Entertainment tells me about Star Trek and his new tabletop game Airfix Battles. I’m so glad they are doing a beta test too.
I think one of the coolest things about the Star Trek RPG is going to be the use of the forume.
Sorry about the weird cut in the video, my memory card filled up and didn’t relay to the next card right.
