Wow! Those attreides and harkonnen books look amazing! I've been trying to stay away from physical books and now I find myself wanting to buy one of each...

Looks amazing. I want to pre-order them but I'm sort of sore that I'm still waiting on six (seven if I count the Conan Art book) physical books for the Conan rpg still. I've got them all in pdf but as I mentioned I'm still waiting for them to produce the physical copies as well for me to get. :/

What about like a campaign instead of 4 versions of the same core book? Other than that I don't like 2d20, what stops me from buying Modiphius RPGs is that they don't come with adventure campaigns. Back in the Achtung! Cthulhu days, they had great campaigns.

Agreed a good campaign is a most. I have too many RPGs that I have never ran because I have no idea how to execute them.

I dont run prepublished modules, but having one that shows the intent of the game is important.

Well, Mutant Chronicles has several - though those might be translations from earlier editions, I'm not sure.
John Carter has one.
Other than that, yeah it's pretty thin.

I'm guessing this is because a campaign is the hardest kind of material to write.
Look at how WotC often put out bad ones, despite it being their main business model and having more resources than any other publisher...

I know that it's hard to do good ones, but that's what I pay them for :) And yes, WotC one's are usually not that great. Chaosium has really great ones, and Pinnacle (Savage Worlds) have simple ones (as in only a couple of pages per episodes and you should complete them for yourself, but this works pretty well).

I decided a couple of years ago, that I will only back / buy RPGs that come with campaigns. First of all most of the time I don't have the time to write my own, but on the other hand I need inspiration as well and they are good for that. As Jeff said above. An example is Star Trek Adventures. They have a lot of one-shots, but not a real campaign (other than the unformatted free one). I need someone to show me how to do a proper Star Trek campaign that is not just one-shots thrown together.

There's the Shackleton Expanse campaign coming next year for Star Trek, and we actually launched with a free living campaign for Star Trek which was spread over three different ships and both Next Generation and Original Series timelines with multiple episodes to take part in :)
Conan is getting two campaigns next year, Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 is getting a new campaign, Infinity is getting the first of a couple of campaigns. You can imagine big new releases are likely to get a similar treatment.

So ... till now we produced two massive (over 300 page) campaigns for Achtung! Cthulhu, four campaigns for Mutant Chronicles, one for John Carter and the free one for Star Trek, aside from that though, what have the Romans ever done for us? ;-)

Any date on when we can expect the physical books for Conan The Adventurer, Conan The Exiles, Conan The King, Conan The Scout, Conan the Wanderer, Conan: Kull of Atlantis and finally The Art of Conan book?

Backers are getting them this month, we announced in the ModCon seminar which quarters they're coming out next year and it will be in a blog this weekend. Wanderer / Adventurer are Q1 :)

Will this be a completely new campaign, or is the free one being reworked? Will it have an overarching story? I'd really be interested in that.

I looked at the free one, but at first glance it's not an overarching story. It's in the same region, there are some adventures that build on the previous one, but it doesn't seem to be a "connected campaign" like I'm looking for. Is that really so, or did I just not look long enough? :)

There will be more adventure stuff on the way, we have plenty of stuff planned and in development.
If you want to know more about what characters are meant to do and how the game works, check out the blogs we're doing on the Modiphius site that offer more details.

I dunno. With the exchange, that's a hundo smackers for a limited edition. Gonna have to pass on a LE. I'll buy the standard when it's out.
