Prodos Games are creating a load of new roleplaying focused villains and adventurer miniatures for the Kickstarter, and we’ll be showing them off in the coming days and weeks.

You can be sure of a wild ride ahead!

We’ll be running until 8pm on Sunday March 9th

  Modiphius Launches SILVERSHIELDS Community Team!

 

Modiphius Entertainment has announced the SILVERSHIELDS Program and two community managers;Dan Whorl and Dave McAlister to lead the teams in 2014.

 

Inspired by Alexander the Great’s veteran warriors the Silver Shields, who gave courage to the younger soldiers in his army and helped hold the line at the direst of times, the new community team program is designed to reward all levels of involvement in supporting Modiphius’s games.

 

 

Chris Birch is passionate about getting everyone involved not matter what they feel they can do, “Whether it’s sticking a poster up in a game club, taking flyers to local stores, running demo games in store, at a club or convention, promoting the games on Facebook, Twitter or just chatting about Modiphius on forums – there’s so much people can do to help out and we plan to reward that with an exciting membership that rewards every member of the team for their efforts.”

 

The SILVERSHIELDS program is signing up members from all over the world to support Modiphius’sflagship games; Achtung! CthulhuMutant Chronicles 3rd EditionPaolo Parente’s DUST Adventures,Cogs, Cakes & Swordsticks and much more! You can sign up herehttp://www.modiphius.com/silvershields.html

 

Based on the level of their support, active members can expect to receive an awesome Modiphius TeamT-shirt, a SILVERSHIELDS badge, and credit towards Modiphius products.

 

Dave McAlister is heading up the UK SILVERSHIELDS. Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, with a big love of the espionage genre. So much so that in 1999, he started Modus Operandi and joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 was also the year that Dave founded UK Role Players as well as co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft. Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. He is currently the webmaster for the Conception and Con-Quest conventions as well as UK Role Players. His current favourite systems are Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem.

 

 

Dan Whorl is the leading the US SILVERSHIELDS. A 33 year old step-father of 4 and a lifelong tabletop gamer. His interest run the gamut of games from Euro board games to Ameri-trash, collectible card games to family and party titles.  However, his heart lies in table top RPGs.  25 years ago, Dan discovered Dungeons and Dragons and his life changed forever.  Having since played every system he could get his hands on, as well as creating more than a few homebrews, Tabletop RPGs have become a cornerstone of Dan’s creative outlet as well as favored pastime of his family. For the last year and a half, Dan has been the Host/Moderator of the popular gaming podcast “The CarpeGM Gamecast” and the owner/webmaster of CarpeGM.net, a website that houses a community dedicated to the enhancement of social event gaming, it’s culture, and the support of those help to shape it.

 

More team managers will be announced for Europe and abroad soon.

 

If you know someone who loves Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu or you think would love to demo the new systems from Modiphius Entertainment please forward this message.

Live through a million deaths and earn your legacy. Enter a dark world filled with despair and threaded by hope where your ability to creatively strategize, learn and overcome unpredictable and unique challenges determines your fate. Dark Souls will demand your absolute concentration, unflinchingly punish your mistakes, but reward your ability to learn from death.
