Chronicle City to publish new Mindjammer Press roleplaying game “Monsters & Magic”

By on 6 March 2013

Mindjammer Press and Chronicle City are very happy to announce their partnership to produce the print version of Monsters & Magic, an Old School Renaissance fantasy roleplaying game written by Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, Achtung! Cthulhu).

Monsters & Magic is a modern fantasy roleplaying game which mixes cutting edge rules mechanics and narrative techniques with traditional fantasy roleplaying concepts. Specifically designed to be used with classic fantasy supplements and adventures with little or no conversion, it allows players and GMs to pick up their favourite fantasy campaigns and characters and bring them to brilliant new life. It’s a game firmly in the “Old School Renaissance” spirit, and works seamlessly with classic fantasy products, new and old.

“This is a very exciting opportunity,” said Sarah Newton, co-owner of Mindjammer Press and author of Monsters & Magic. “Angus and I have worked together on many titles, including the ENnie-award winning Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, and Modiphius’ Achtung! Cthulhu. This deal is another step in our partnership, and allows us to bring the Monsters & Magic RPG and its line of supplements to a wide and discerning audience, using Chronicle City’s proven industry expertise and excellent track record. We’re looking forward to a regular release of Monsters & Magic products with Chronicle City, beginning with the core rulebook this May.”

“Sarah has produced fantastic work for a number of companies over the years and has great vision and ideas. I’m very pleased to be able to work with her again, and Mindjammer Press for the first time, to bring Monsters & Magic to print and retail stores, and look forward to renewing our collaboration on this and hopefully future projects,” added Angus Abranson, owner of Chronicle City Ltd.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he 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 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (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. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
