Today we're pleased to announce the release of Children of Orion – The Venu Sourcebook, the brand new supplement for Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game, from ENnie-award winning writer Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, Achtung! Cthulhu, Monsters & Magic) and David Donachie (Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, Solipsist).
“YOU WILL KNEEL BEFORE THE EMPEROR—OR DIE!
“To dwell on the past is weakness! We were born from nucleonic fire. We were forged in flame and suffering. And now we march to the stars and make the spawn of abomination burn!”
Welcome to the Bright Empire of Venu—the interstellar civilisation of the “bad guys” of Human Space! An ancient people of xenophobic human supremacists, survivors of an ancient war, now hellbent on cleansing the cosmos of abomination and bringing the purifying word of their undying God-Emperor to the stars.
Children of Orion—the Venu Sourcebook provides a whole new universe of adventure for your Mindjammer games—a harsh and violent interstellar empire beyond the Commonality frontier. Play rebels against the domineering rule of the God-Emperor, mutated troopers and servitors of the sinister Dark Radiance fighting against the cultural inroads of the Commonality—or Commonality agents themselves, working behind enemy lines to defeat an implacable foe which once devastated the Core Worlds! It’s a completely different vibe for your Mindjammer games—darker, more desperate, where the survival of an entire people is at stake.
Children of Orion—the Venu Sourcebook includes:
Prehistories and histories of the Empire of Venu
The strange powers of the Dark Radiance
Starmaps and world descriptions
Full details for creating Venu characters, including genotypes, occupations, and cultures
Venu tech and starships
Guidelines for playing Venu campaigns. Fight against the Venu, or play a Venu character yourself!
A sourcebook for Mindjammer—The Roleplaying Game. The Mindjammer—The Roleplaying Game core book is required for play.
Children of Orion—the Venu Sourcebook is now available in PDF format on DriveThruRPG, with the print edition available from the 23rd November.
We hope you enjoy this exciting new Mindjammer sourcebook, part of the fantastic Mindjammer Collection, which joins other Mindjammer supplements like BLUE, The Far Havens, Dominion, The City People, and Hearts and Minds, in this ever-growing setting of mind-blowing transhuman science-fiction adventure.
To his friend a man
a friend shall prove,
To him and the friend of his friend;
But never a man
shall friendship make
With one of his foeman's friends.
