News - Mindjammer: FATE Powered Transhuman Sci-Fi RPG from Modiphius Entertainment

I can'tr remember the last time I got to be part of a solid sci-fi RPG. Not to say I'm wanting for good games, but my group here tends to stray more towards Fantasy than Sci-Fi and that is just something that happens. Still, I saw this in my inbox and it just looks way too cool to not share. Bonus points being that with this game being FATE powered a huge chunk of the book should be freed up for all the wonderful Sci-Fi setting bits and pieces a world like this could make use of. Press Release below the break, complete with links.

Mindjammer - The Roleplaying Game (Transhuman Adventure In the Second Age of space)

 The ENnie Award-winning transhuman science-fiction RPG setting returns, in a new edition updated and massively expanded for the Fate Core rules.
