Space 1889 adventure “The Fate of Angahiaa” now available in print

The Space: 1889 adventure The Fate of Angahiaa is now available in print.

Mars and its city states are the most important concerns of Earth’s colonial politics. Liftwood is a critical, highly sought after resource, and not all nations have equal access to it. But the Martians are playing their own games and seek to use their contacts with the humans for their own plans.

The Canal Prince of the small Martian city-state of Angahiaa seeks to expand its power through a trade treaty with the German Empire. But other groups within the city do not want any human influences, while others seek power over the city themselves and will use the foreigners for their own schemes.

The player characters forming the German delegation are drawn into the midst of the battles and intrigues for power in the city. They must maneuver between the decadent Canal Prince, his enemies in the nobility and guilds, as well as the priests, the slaves, and the Hill Martians of the surrounding valleys, to find friends and allies.

The player characters can greatly influence—the Fate of Angahiaa.

For a successful mission in the Martian City, social skills and a readiness to deal with the local situation are required. All in all, a wide variety of challenges await the player characters, ensuring that physical, inventive, or academic skills are all of great use.

The player characters should be willing to support Germany’s interests, or at least be neutral towards them. Even so, options are provided should that not be the case.

This adventure is written for the Ubiquity Version of the Space:1889 RPG.

The Fate of Angahiaa is now available for $15.99 / £11.99 in print at the Modiphius Shop or any other retailer! A PDF copy can be acquired for $8.50 at our DriveThruRPG store.

Space 1889 Adventure “On the Trail of the Gods” now available in print

The adventure On the Trail of the Gods by authors J.C. Clements, Esq., Frank Frey, and Shane Ivey, Esq. is now available in print.

“Since the inventors Edison and Armstrong set out on their first journey to Mars in 1870, there has been speculation about visitors from other worlds to Earth as early as the prehistoric times of mankind. Archaeologist Alastair Whitman believes he has found proof. The characters are invited to join the Glasgow International Exhibition in 1888 where they can learn about the latest technological inventions and even meet celebrities like Nicola Tesla. When the exhibition receives threats, they realize that Whitman’s discovery might be an explosive issue: Not just scientists are interested in it, and the characters have to take care that this knowledge does not fall into the wrong hands.
This adventure is set on Earth, especially in Glasgow (Scotland), Egypt, and the Sudan. The characters will journey through the Sudan where they will have to beware many dangers, such as the followers of the Mahdi, who are fighting about his succession. A long journey up the Nile will take them into currently unstable territories where the characters will be on their own. Will they choose the right company? Will they achieve the rescue of Whitman and escape his persecutors? The characters will learn the answer On the Trail of the Gods.

The adventurers can be of any nationality, even if the starting point of this journey is set in Scotland. The events in this adventure challenge various archetypes, especially Academics, Discoverers, Reporters, Scientists, and Soldiers, but other adventurous characters will be just as useful.”

On the Trail of the Gods is now available in print for $10.99 / £7.99 in print at the Modiphius Shop or any other retailer! A PDF copy can be acquired for $5.00 at our DriveThruRPG store.

Space 1889: Adventure “Thunders of Venus” is now available in print

The Space: 1889 adventure Thunders of Venus is now available in print.

The exploration of Venus was ill-fated for the British right from the start. All three of their Venus expeditions between 1874 and 1876 disappeared without a trace. The surviving expedition members could not be rescued until years later when—to the embarrassment of the Empire—a German zeppelin recovered them. Ever since, the British have been searching for ways to stop the decaying process the precious liftwood of their ships is exposed to on the Morning Star. The British hope to regain air supremacy on Venus now lies in the young and ingenious scientist Roger Kincaide. Over the years he has developed the so-called ‘Kincaide Field’ and the day has come that he wants to fieldtest his invention with the airship Aphrodite. The player characters are invited to join the maiden flight. A day of celebration, that could change the course of future history— if it weren’t for the Thunders of Venus that turn the cruise into a fierce struggle for survival…

This adventure is set on Venus. A test flight of an experimental air ship ends in a catastrophe and the player characters, surviving crew and guests find themselves in the middle of the Venusian jungle. Will they be able to fight their way through to the next human outpost? Will they survive the threats of the jungle or will they end up as raptor food? What are they going to do when they are caught in the crossfire of a conflict between two rival Lizard-men tribes? And why can’t they shake the feeling that someone might have sabotaged the whole thing…?

The adventurers should be favorable towards the British Empire which in turn should trust them. The events in this adventure are especially suited for characters experienced in the wilderness. Be they Adventurers, Explorers, Hunters, Survivors of all kinds, Doctors or Soldiers, they will all be able to put their skills to use. However, social skills will be useful as well, so that Celebrities, Moneymen, or Academics, seemingly lost in the jungle at first, will have their chance to shine too.

This adventure was written for the Ubiquity ruleset for Space:1889.

Thunders of Venus is now available for $11.99 / £7.99 in print at the Modiphius Shop or any other retailer! A PDF copy can be acquired for $5.00 at our DriveThruRPG store.

The adventure is also available with Savage Worlds rules as PDF: Thunders of Venus (Savage Worlds edition) PDF version

Now available: London Bridge Has Fallen Down and The Fate of Angahiaa PDF

London Bridge Has Fallen Down

The Space: 1889 adventure London Bridge Has Fallen Down by Kieran Turley is now available in stores!

“Mylarkt—Mars’ oldest city, home to a proud and fading race. But that pride masks a rot festering in the cracks of the city’s decay, an underworld teeming with smuggled goods and ancient artifacts sold at the behest of local crime lords to be shipped out along the ancient canals of which the city’s founders were pioneers—or so the inhabitants claim.
No sane Earthman would enter this pit of iniquity willingly—but who can refuse the request of a grieving noblewoman? Lady Edith Tillington is mourning her husband, a scientist in her Majesty’s service, who crashed in the desert onboard an ether flyer called London Bridge. She is now in need of bold, Mars-proven adventurers willing to help her recover the remains of her late husband. The characters arrive at the ancient Martian city only to find themselves at the very heart of the city’s quarrels, with the colonial powers, local smugglers, assassins, and the ruling elite of Mylarkt all playing out their own selfish schemes. In a wild chase, they will find themselves forced to make their way deep into the Isidis Desert, where they will be confronted with the best kept secret of the Empire!
This adventure includes a detailed description of the city of Mylarkt, including a city map, with additional locations, factions, and thrilling plot hooks providing inspiration for further adventures in and around Mylarkt, a city with a long history and powerful interests at play.”

“From before the beginnings of history, mankind had spun tales and wondered about that bright point of light named for the Roman goddess of love: Venus, the enigmatic, ever-shifting star of evening and of morning. Yet more recently, scholars speculated what might be hiding beneath the swirling clouds of Venus. Then, the first pioneers started their journey into the ether, and found the Morning Star to be a deadly Garden of Eden. The first expeditions entered a world resembling an Earth 150 million years past. Steaming jungles, treacherous swamps, and stormy oceans cover its surface. Giant dinosaurs dominate the planet, and in the midst of these primeval beasts, strange and alien Lizard-man peoples fight for survival. Despite its hostile nature, thousands of human colonists have already been lured to Venus, searching for resources, treasures, new territories and more …

With this source book you and your fellow players can now plunge into the “green hell” of the Morning Star!

Or you can choose to play a Venusian warrior defending his homeland against the cold, emotionless invaders from beyond space. It’s up to you!

The deadly swamps of the Morning Star await you!”

The Space: 1889 adventure The Strange Land, written by Gareth Hanrahan, is now available in print!

“Far away from his home planet, Canal Martian boy Kime lives on the estate of Lord Feltam.Hithe who shows the orphaned child off to entertain his curious guests during his illustrious dinner parties. Not only does Kime come from a foreign planet, he also has a most extraordinary talent: his lifting gland is rudimentarily functional, allowing him to levitate in the air – although exhausting him visibly.

At one of these dinner parties, the adventurers have the pleasure to meet this remarkable Martian. However, the boy disappears the same night and it is up to the player characters to search for him immediately. Their first trace leads them to a dubious travelling circus and in the end, the adventurers find themselves on the frontlines in the London dockworkers’s strike.

In part two, the player characters can choose to meet Kime again on Mars. Hired by a British officer in Parhoon, the adventurers are now involved in a conflict between the local potentate and the former orphan boy Kime who in the meantime has become a figurehead of the Martian canal workers. The British colonial power has, of course, its own interests.”
