Mophidius Unveiels A New Series of Games From Flagship IP “Against the God Themselves”

Prepare for a mind-shattering dive into insanity, as Mophidius Entertainment today is unveiling Cohors Cthulhu, a new series of games and transmedia properties set in an all-new timeline.

In a war being battled on the fringes of the Roman Empire, foes must become friends in order to protect the world from the devastating effects of an invading cult and its monstrous cohorts.

Today Modiphius Entertainment is thrilled to announce a brand new range of tabletop games for its flagship IP “Against the God Themselves”: COHORS CTHULHU. This new cinematic tabletop RPG, narrative co-operative wargame, fiction line, and miniatures range is set in the same universe as the successful Achtung! Cthulhu 2D20 RPG, and expands upon it, this time introducing adventurers to an era of daring gladiators, valiant centurions, and brave Germanic heroes.

COHORS CTHULHU details a secret war being fought on the fringes of the Roman Empire. Far up on the Northern border, Romans and Germanic tribes clash in the dark and forbidden forests that cover these lands. Soon, however, they’ll have to band together to stem the invading forces of an insidious cult and its swarm of abhorrent creatures from the deep cosmos. Modiphius has assembled a rockstar creative team led by Modiphius’ Chief Creative Officer Chris Birch, including Lead Writer Douglas Seacat (Warmachine, Hordes, Iron Kingdoms RPG), RPG Lead Writer Matt Goetz (Iron Kingdoms RPG, Pathfinder, Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition), authors John Houlihan (Achtung Cthulhu, Mon Dieu Cthulhu, The Seraph Chronicles) and Nick Brown (Agents of Rome), Modiphius 2d20 Developer Nathan Dowdell (Star Trek Adventures, Dune: Adventures in the Imperium, Fallout 2d20), and artists including Bjorn Barends (John Carter, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics) and Phroilan Gardner (Conan, Diablo III, League of Legends, World of Warcraft).

COHORS CTHULHU puts players on the front lines of the known world in the 2nd century, using fire, steel, and ancient technology to fight Eldritch horrors! “We always envisioned Achtung! Cthulhu as part of a larger storyline where heroes across the ages fight a secret war against the eldritch forces of the old gods,” said Chris Birch, co-founder at Modiphius Entertainment. “COHORS CTHULHU is the next step in bringing that universe to life and opening up more possibilities for players to create and play in amazing stories that span human history. Working on this project has let us massively expand the universe and we’ve delved deep into the mystical ancient records of the Hyperboreans, the strange technologies of Atlantis and the road to the mighty Roman Empire! In the Shadows of Atlantis campaign for Achtung! Cthulhu we teased a connection to Atlantis, and in The Mountains of Madness, we promised an epic sequel that showed what would happen at the end of World War Two if the Nazis finally woke the sleeping gods. We have always planned to build this world out, and now we can.”

The first major release for the COHORS CTHULHU roleplaying game will drop players into the Roman frontier town of Laurium, the archetypal walled fort that sits on the border between civilization and the mysterious, foreboding lands. Smoky taverns filled with dangerous vagabonds swirl with gossip and whispers of terrifying creatures, strange ruins, and haunted forests in 2nd century Northern Europe. Barbaric Germanic tribesmen prowl the thick woodland, but are they the only thing the Romans should be worried about? And how do these events relate to ancient Atlantis and the colossal war that would tear Europe apart two millennia in the future?

Modiphius Entertainment has multiple projects planned for this universe, including:

  • A cinematic RPG is driven by the 2d20 system also seen in Modiphius’ Dune, Star Trek, Dishonored, and Fallout roleplaying games. This is based on the Achtung! Cthulhu edition of 2d20 will feature new systems to help groups start playing the moment they open the book.
  • A narrative wargame designed from the ground up to be playable solo and cooperatively. The game will also get you on the table playing from page 1, while a campaign will unveil the full story of this epic secret war.
  • A complete miniatures line scaled for 28mm to be compatible with other major historical lines will provide plenty of heroes, creatures, and strange factions battling for the ancient world.
  • A fiction series including a complete COHORS CTHULHU novel and an anthology of short stories following the exploits of a host of key characters seen throughout the products.
