The Klingon Empire GM Toolkit By Modiphius Entertainment
  • SYSTEM: Star Trek Adventures
  • PRODUCT TYPE: GM screen, adventure, and double-sided poster map
  • RETAIL PRICE: $45.99
  • DESCRIPTION: GMs for Klingon PCs know they are seeking honor and glory. What better way to start than with a GM screen, an adventure, and a double-sided poster map of Klingon space and the Alpha and Beta quadrants? The four-panel gamemaster screen includes rules for the 2d20 system and reference tables needed during play. And a Klingon warship is wrapped around the player facing side. It also provides six double-sided reference sheets including the actions of each role aboard a Klingon Defense Force warship, Momentum spend reference tables, and conflict rules references. I find it ironic that the Klingons named their conquering navy Defense Force but maybe it was a translation issue. The adventure can be used as a one-shot or as part of a larger campaign. Finally, the A2-sized map depicts Klingon space with Klingonese labels, and on the reverse, a map of the Alpha and Beta quadrants, focused on the Klingon Empire. Qapla'!
