Modiphius Entertainment announced today plans for a series of tabletop games based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars stories. The series, which Modiphius promises will be “a faithful adaptation of Burroughs’ planetary romance,” is to include the full standard set of three: a board game, roleplaying game, and miniatures.
Of the three, the first scheduled for release, in December of this year, is John Carter: The Roleplaying Game. Powering the RPG will be a streamlined version of the 2d20 rules system that Modiphius employed for Mutant Chronicles and Conan.
Further adventures in Barsoom will follow with John Carter: Swords of Mars Miniatures in the spring of 2016 and John Carter: Warlord of Mars, The Board Game the following summer.
