Mindjammer returns! Mindjammer Press, a new roleplaying and fiction imprint, has announced its plans to publish the Mindjammer roleplaying game, the far future transhuman space opera setting, and fiction lines.
â€œThis is a very exciting opportunity,â€ said Sarah Newton, owner of Mindjammer Press and author of the ENnie Award-winning setting and fiction line. â€œWeâ€™ve taken the decision to bring all the Mindjammer fiction and RPG projects under a single umbrella, to allow us to concentrate on producing the new second edition and its supplements, as well as future novels in the Mindjammer series. Weâ€™re looking forward to a regular release of products to support the Mindjammer setting and community, beginning this week with a re-launch of Mindjammer, the first novel in the series.â€
Mindjammer Pressâ€™ plans for the setting include the immediate release of the Mindjammer novel, and the publication of Mindjammer: The Expansionary Era, the second edition Mindjammer core book, in spring 2013. The new edition will see vastly expanded content, new and detailed background material, and all new artwork, and will be fully compatible with the FATE 3 Core rules. It will be followed later in 2013 by the Solenine campaign pack, based on the setting for the first novel, a new and revamped Black Zone campaign, and Transcendence, the second novel in the Mindjammer series. Mindjammer Press plans 3-4 releases per year thereafter.
Sarah, who will be lead writer and production manager on the Mindjammer lines, concluded: “Weâ€™ve had a lot of material waiting in the wings for several years and, with the imminent launch of the FATE 3 Core rules, I canâ€™t think of a better time to produce the second edition. Weâ€™re looking forward to providing the Mindjammer fans with an expanding line of transhuman space opera adventures, supplements, and fiction.â€
