Voting for the 2014 ENnies Awards is now open, and we’re delighted to have been nominated for three awards – as well as best publisher:
- Best Family Game: Hobbit Tales
- Best Writing: The Third Doctor Sourcebook, for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space
- Best Free Product: Lost City of the Ancients, for Rocket Age
We’re also over the moon to have received a Judges’ Spotlight Award for the Rocket Age Roleplaying Game: thank you to Stacy Muth for picking us for it!
Today we're casting a little light on two products: Lost City of the Ancients and the Rocket Age Core Rulebook.
At this year's ENnies, Rocket Age received a Judges' Spotlight Award - and we couldn't be more delighted!
Rocket Age is set in a universe where, in 1931 Einstein, Tesla and Ray Armstrong, rode the first rocket ship to Mars, discovering that the solar system is populated by strange and wondrous alien peoples and adventure is never far away!
Discovering that they’re not alone in the galaxy, the nations of Earth race one another for the stars, sending out expeditions, embassies and invading armies to far-off worlds. There they discover all manner of alien life, from the stratified caste system of the Martians to the primitive, ape-like Venusians, from the degenerate Ioites and plant-like Ganymedians to the scheming of the Europans. The solar system is teeming with life – and danger!
Players take the role of whatever sort of heroes they want. There are thirteen playable intelligent species and sub-species in the Rocket Age Core Rulebook. What sort of game you play is up to you. Characters might be archaeologists on Mars, scientists exploring Venus, small time merchants running between the planets, or even members of the elite Rocket Rangers blasting off from one hot spot to another.
The Rocket Age Core Rulebook is the best place to start your adventures in the solar system. This book contains everything you need to blast off into a world of interplanetary adventure. The Rocket Age Core Rulebook is available in all good hobby stores now! If you don't have access to a hobby store you can order it on the Cubicle 7 webstore here.
Lost City of the Ancients
The discovery of an apparently intact Ancient Martian ruin deep in the Western Highlands has set potentially deadly events in motion. Such a find would draw treasure seekers and archaeologists from across Mars, but this one is even more of an attraction. It lies in territory unclaimed by any faction or nation. This makes it free for the taking and, despite the harshness of the Western Highlands, the need to travel through territory held by the Blue Chanari and the stiff competition, three other expeditions are already kitting out in the French held city-state of Kolpith.
The Lost City of the Ancients is a 30-page scenario with an additional PDF of pregenerated characters so you can blast off on your own Rocket Age adventure right away!
