With all the chaos of the last year, it’s more important than ever for people to set aside their differences and come together, and tabletop creator Modiphius Entertainment is leading the charge with a focus on a unique genre of tabletop wargames – narrative-driven Adventure Wargaming. Featuring titles such as Fallout Wasteland Warfare, Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms, and Rangers of Shadow Deep, the Adventure Wargaming genre offers players a narrative-driven experience that promises more satisfaction and immersion than merely winning by scoring points. Each game features an unfolding story told on the battlefield that is often more exciting than winning the game itself!
Today, Modiphius is expanding the genre with the retail launch of Five Parsecs from Home, a game specifically geared towards solo play. In it, players assemble a ragtag crew of galactic trailblazers and head out to explore the stars, pick up jobs, and every now and then — engage in some action-packed, sci-fi combat! Expand and upgrade your team as you find new patrons and new enemies as you dig deeper into a thrilling tale of robots, aliens, and cosmic escapades!
Titles in the Adventure Wargaming line include:
- Five Parsecs from Home: Build your crew of humans, robots, and aliens to take to the stars in this science-fiction adventure wargame. With procedurally generated battles, players will have to finish jobs whilst encountering the strangest things that the galaxy has to offer.
- Fallout Wasteland Warfare: Based on the iconic Bethesda videogame franchise, this miniature game features an exciting plot that fans of post-apocalyptic settings will love, along with settlement building, map exploration, random vaults, and a brilliant AI “Adversary” system that sees your enemies often skipping combat to beat you to the prize
- Elder Scrolls Call to Arms: In classic Elder Scrolls fashion, Call to Arms contains all the Draugr tombs, Dwemer Ruins, and gangs of angry Swordcloaks players love from the setting — either in co-op or solo-play. Modiphius is also preparing an upcoming purely solo campaign, featuring a choice-driven narrative that will affect the story’s outcome and how events unfold!
- Rangers of Shadow Deep: Grab your cloak, bow, and trusty pipe and head out into a lovingly crafted fantasy world from Joseph A McCullough (Frostgrave, Stargrave). Rangers puts you into the well-worn boots of a a plucky fantasy ranger, engaging all sorts of guerrilla warfare to prevent the expansion of the Shadow Deep into your lands! Gather your companions or go it alone as you grow your ranger from a humble forest-dweller to a lean, mean, trick-shooting archery machine!
