Hi folks we're looking for playtesters for our various games who are willing to give stuff a good going over, push it to the limits, try all the options and read all the notes to help us keep up the high level of quality Modiphius is known for.

If you're interested please contact us on the Contact page or post here and we'll get in touch - send us a little info on you and your gaming group, where you are, when you play and what games you like to play - that way we can try to make sure we're getting you involved in projects you guys love!

Reporting for duty :)

I roleplayed for about 20 years.
I've played (both as Player and GM) a host of traditional games, from first edition D&D (the red-box) to D&D3.5, to Unknown Armies, SLA Industries, KULT, Paranoia, Shadowrun (2nd, 3rd and 4th ED), Cyberpunk2020, Call of Cthulhu, Stormbringer, GURPS, Ars Magica, Warhammer 1stED, a little bit of the old Mutant Chronicles rpg (2ndED), a lot of Vampire The Masquerade (and other classic WoD games, and some new WoD ones)... and many others I don't remember right now.

I had a two years roleplay burnout, then resumed active play (very active, very often, with a wide variety of people) in 2009 thanks to the "discovery" of new indie games.
Some of those I played I already mentioned in the MC3 discussion, but I played and still play LOTS more.

Currently I have a "physical" group of friends (Carlo, Ivan, Claudia and Francesca ... all between 25 and 31 years of age) with which I play once a week.
Since 2012 we played a long campaign of The World of Near (about 15 sessions), a host of one-shots with games like Montsegur 1244, A Penny for My Thoughts, FIASCO, A Taste for Murder and other stuff.
The most recent games were a whole season of Monsterhearts, a whole story-arc with SPIONE and now we just started the second season of Monsterhearts (to wrap up the events of the first one).

Onece a month, I demo games like FIASCO and Dungeon World and others at a local game association.

Meanwhile I play rpgs online by Google Hangout... most recently I've been a player in an ongoing Dungeon World campaign, I had some Trollbabe quests, and a Psy-Run demo.

I also write rpg articles for the italian website Gioconomicon.net.

- - -

Beside rpgs I also play boardgames, and used to play miniature wargames (especially WH40k, Confrontacion, Dark Age nd Warzone 1stED).

I first met the MC universe when, here in Italy, a serialized novel got published for the newspaper-booth market (is this how you call kiosks that sell newspapers and magazines in english?).
Then I got hooked up on the CCG, the RPG and the Wargame.

So yeah ... I would like to help however I can :)

Just found this place today! Would love to dig into the Mutant Chronicles rules, given the opportunity (how I've missed that game)!

That being said, I don't have a regular group of players at the moment, work/life schedules being what they are. On the other hand, I've always been an avid "number cruncher" and probability guy. Have played and run a great many different game systems, far too many for a complete list (short, short list: A/D&D [various], Champions/Hero System, Warhammer Fnatasy Roleplay, Vampire: The Masquerade, WEG Star Wars, 7th Sea, Legend of the Five Rings, Ars Magica, Weapons of the Gods RPG). I'm quite good at tearing things apart and seeing what makes them go, since for me understanding the mechanics is the best way to create balanced challenges for my players.

A friend and I have started up a Dust group about 6 months, and now with 6 players are going to do the Hades campaign with a start up twist of 150 points increasing about 50 a week till 300.

My role-playing experience both as a gamemaster and player started back in 1978 with DND 1st edition and playing or dabbling in many systems. Examples are All editions of DND, pathfinder, Gurps, Hero system, my own home made system, Traveler original and D20, D6 and D20 Star Wars, and Savage worlds to name a few.

I am presently running a Pathfinder campaign, and participating in 2 Savage Worlds’ campaigns (hell on Earth and Sundered Skies).

For miniature games experience I have played 40K, Flames of War, Warmachine and Hordes, Infinity Dust (of course), DND miniatures’, Star War miniatures, and Heroclix.
I have also played a lot of various boardgames.

I have filled out the form for Siege of the Citadel and have not heard back. I'm ready to tear it open and help make it great.

Reporting for duty for Star Trek testers.
Hello, im 38. I have been playing RPG's since 2nd edition D&D, White-wolf, etc.. I have 3-5 regular role players, and i run a few gaming groups in my area. I am involved with 2 gaming stores in the area where i could demo this game at them. I will sign an NDA as well, which is usually asked when i play test things. We have run Star Trek RPGs in the past, so this would be easy for me to get this on the table within a week or two. Thanks!

Hello AL Beddow,U.S.A.F (ret) here.

Been gaming since mid-60's (yes, SIXTIES. Free Love and Flower Power). Huge games player I've done playtesting for Mongoose Publishing, Kenzer&Co. and AEG

I have been playing and running RPG's since 1981. Since 1998 I've been involved with the demo-teams of various companies including Kenzer&Co, AEG, Columbia Games, Twilight Creations, Warlord Games, and (for almost 13 years) Mongoose Publishing (ran the Mongoose program for the final three years it was open. Oh and Wizards of the Coast Delegate 2005-2008.

While in the WotC Delegate program I was also on their convention Support team, working their Gencon booth in 2007/2008, and brought on to be a Volunteer Coordinator for PAX Prime in 2008. For Mongoose Publishing I was brought to Gencon 2012 spending the weekend running their ACTA:Star Fleet system in the booth.

From 2001 till 2012 I was running anywhere from 25+ to almost 40 hrs of events at cons (3 or 4 days long) hitting 4 to 6 conventions a year. That slowed down only once my wife became ill with Leukemia (she's been in remission for 2 years now).

I play at two different game stores in Spokane, as well as having a big game room in my home. I also belong to a chapter of Star Fleet International with several players quite interested in giving Star Trek RPG a good going over.

Thank you,
Al

Hi, my name is Jeffrey and I have been an avid gamer for over 20 years and have experience in both play testing and demoing rpgs and other games. I was part of the AEG bounty hunter team in the early 2000s running L5R cig and rpg events in Connecticut USA. I have been playing both Mutant Chronicles and Warzone in the past and currently have a group that meets every other week. I would be delighted to help in play testing any of your lines and will be showing off Siege of The Citadel at my local game stores when I receive my kick starter.
