The KIingons Are Here!

Modiphius' KIingon Empire sourcebook for the Star Trek Adventures RPG is now available in both hardcover pre-order and PDF format!

It's actually billed as a Core Rulebook, and contains character creation and the core rules of the game, so it looks like -- if I'm reading this right -- you could play a Klingon-themed STA game using just this book.


The hardcovers ship in Autumn, but if you pre-order you can get a PDF preview now. You can get a regular hardcover or a red leatherette Collector's Edition, or just grab the PDF preview.


Press release descriptions to be found below!



THE KLINGON EMPIRE core rulebook for the Star Trek Adventures Roleplaying Game takes you to the final frontier of the Galaxy, where new worlds and new civilizations await bold Klingon warriors hungry for glory and honor. Your duties may take you to the edges of known space, to Klingon colonies in need, to the borders of neighboring galactic powers, or into the eye of interstellar phenomena. Your warship and crew represent the best-trained and honorable of Klingon warriors, and your cunning and abilities are needed now more than ever.

A new threat looms from across the Gamma Quadrant, representing a worthy opponent for the worlds of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Tensions are high and it remains to be seen how the Klingon Empire will get involved. It is a volatile time for the Empire as her brave warriors and bold crews ready for battle against whatever foes present themselves.

  • Guidance on how to create your own Klingon-focused Star Trek stories of honor and glory on the final frontier.

I have no idea! I assume it’s all still compatible.
I am betting it is like the Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars series (Edge of the Empire vs Age of Rebellion vs Force and Destiny), with a lot of rules duplication for those people who only buy the one book, to ensure it is self contained with regards to rules. But also with a focus on the different themes and parts of the universe.


And here is the quote the confirms the duplication of rules as expected for those who will just buy this Klingon Core Book.

This core rulebook contains the same rules presented in the Starfleet-focused core rulebook released in 2017. The award-winning design team, including 2d20 developer Nathan Dowdell, took the opportunity to edit and streamline the rules chapters based on fan feedback since the game’s launch, and introduce new rules for reputation, honor, glory, and house management. Now, for the first time, you and your fellow players can create your own noble Klingon House and seek out glory. Everything you need to create brave Klingon warriors and fearsome Klingon warships are available for you to use.
