Modiphius Defend Humanity With Mutant Chronicle’s Cartel Sourcebook

June 8, 2016 by brennon

If you’re looking to be the good guys in Mutant Chronicles then you might want to pick up the new sourcebook from Modiphius called Cartel & Orbitals (also available as a PDF).

Cartel & Orbitals

So what’s this book all about?

“It is a solar system riven by discord, where man fights man despite the looming darkness and the threat of the Dark Symmetry and its instruments, the Dark Apostles and the Dark Legion. Corporations zealously usurp each other and leave humanity an easy target for the forces of dark and corruption.

But there is still hope as one group stands up and waves the flag of unity among men. It is the last bastion capable of uniting the forces of mankind in full. These powerful men and women call themselves The Cartel.”

I like the sound of this. Being the last bastion of defence is always a good reason to go out on an adventure! Inside the book you’ll also find…

  • History: Immerse yourself in the history and origins of The Cartel. Discover the past that sets the foundation for success against an impossible present.
  • Structure: Learn how this well-oiled machine that oversees corporations and the solar system is put together. See how this behemoth of juxtaposed voices delivers on the promise of a better future.
  • Freelancers: The freelancers walk the edge of the law, but without them the society of Mutant Chronicles would not work. Learn some of the secrets to the success of the Freelancing Independent Corporations’ Committee within The Cartel.
  • Underbelly: Even The Cartel has its seamy  Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Behind the red tape, beneath the democratic votes and good intentions, something nefarious moves about.

I really like the sound of this and I’d love to try out a role-play within this world specifically focused around this group.
