GLORY TO YOU AND YOUR HOUSE!

“WE DO NOT FIGHT MERELY TO SPILL BLOOD, BUT TO ENRICH THE SPIRIT.” – EMPEROR KAHLESS II

THE KLINGON EMPIRE core rulebook for the Star Trek Adventures Roleplaying Game takes you to the final frontier of the Galaxy, where new worlds and new civilizations await bold Klingon warriors hungry for glory and honor. Your duties may take you to the edges of known space, to Klingon colonies in need, to the borders of neighboring galactic powers, or into the eye of interstellar phenomena. Your warship and crew represent the best-trained and honorable of Klingon warriors, and your cunning and abilities are needed now more than ever.

A new threat looms from across the Gamma Quadrant, representing a worthy opponent for the worlds of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Tensions are high and it remains to be seen how the Klingon Empire will get involved. It is a volatile time for the Empire as her brave warriors and bold crews ready for battle against whatever foes present themselves.

This 390 page full color PDF Star Trek Adventures core rulebook contains:

  • Guidance on how to create your own Klingon-focused Star Trek stories of honor and glory on the final frontier.
  • A complete and updated version of the Star Trek Adventures 2d20 game system.
  • An extensive study of the Klingon Empire, including its history, culture, worlds, society, warships, technology, and more.
  • Guidelines for novice and experienced gamemasters on how to run Star Trek-themed adventures and campaigns of conquest and exploration for the daring crew of a Klingon warship.
  • A large selection of Klingon NPCs from all eras of play, as well as many antagonists, including Federation, Cardassian, Romulan, Borg, and Dominion characters and vessels.
  • An introductory adventure designed to quickly get you and your fellow players playing brave Klingon warriors.
  • Historical excerpts, personal logs, and intercepted communications, providing a new perspective on Star Trek lore and events.
  • Brought to you by an expert Star Trek development team, including award-winning Star Trek novelists, editors, and game designers.

Please note this is a PDF preview of the full title and will be updated with further details before its final release alongside the print book. You will automatically receive updates via email as they are added.

Hello there, really excited by this new release.
I have two questions :

I don't have anything related to this game yet. Will I be able to run a Federation game with this rulebook or is this better to buy the original rulebook ?

If I want a physical copy, can I order one even if I live in Canada ?

Thank you for your incredible job at following up with players.

If you pair it with the free online character generator, you could probably get by. There's very little Starfleet information, species options, or starships in the book, though, since it's focused on Klingons. I'd suggest the Starfleet core, honestly.

Modiphius.net ships physical copies all around the world, so yes, you'd get it shipped to Canada eventually. Print edition won't be available until late 2020ish.

Loving the book but I think I’ve found some typos and maybe (?) consistency errors (it depends on whether I interpret the Honor Day panel you folks did aright). Is there a right place to put them?

You can email them to me at jim at modiphius.com. Final edit pass is underway before we send the final to the printers.

So the "no backgrounds" and regular files differ in size by about 19MB but they both have a white background. Is something wrong with my download or the files?
Customer avatar
Jim J July 23, 2020 12:16 pm UTC
The no background version removes some of the distressed texture layers to make it a little faster to load. The final version will be optimized for digital viewing.

OK! Thanks for that answer. Will it be black border with black background like the other STA books?
Customer avatar
Jim J July 23, 2020 4:07 pm UTC
Nope! All new layout and design. The final will be dark text on a light background as you see in the preview. The distressed look and feel will be there but optimized for digital viewing. Klingons don't use the LCARS format so we created a new design for their book.

Great variant to the old Core Rulebook! I do prefer the new rules explanations and the Klingon focus is honorable indeed.

One thing that I do not dig at all, though, is how the PDF is put together. Not in terms of style, that part is very suitable, but in terms of the image layers. It does come in two versions, with and without background images, but both versions, even the one without backgrounds, loads like molasses for me, especially on my pad, which is my main mode of usage. Between many of the pages the load times are uncomfortably long. I severely hope that Modiphius will release an optimized version at some point. Patience and waiting are not part of the honorable Klingon skill set after all...

The final file will be optimized for digital viewing. The current file is just a shorter preview of the final.

Nice work. One thing that does seem to be missing in the equipment chapter is the hand agonizer that we saw in "Day of the Dove."

Is a physical copy available, and if not now, when will one be available?
Customer avatar
Jim J July 09, 2020 10:09 pm UTC
Physical copy pre-orders are available on Modiphius.net. There'll be a standard edition and leatherette-bound collector's edition (interiors the same). Print editions should be available in Q4 2020.

Are there any Klingon campaigns written yet? I'm GMing but not quite at the level of being able to create my own campaigns... I'd love to try out a few pre-written ones first as I get used to playing as Klingons but not sure where to find them. Any suggestions?
Customer avatar
Jim J July 09, 2020 4:13 am UTC
The book contains a short introductory adventure to get your crew of Klingon warriors started, and the chapter on gamemastering Klingon campaigns provides detailed advice on planning and running a Klingon campaign, and also provides a dozen 1-page mission briefs that can be used as starting points for new missions.

We haven't yet published any Klingon-specific adventures beyond that, though most of the existing adventures for the game could be adapted for use with a Klingon crew.

Jodi C July 11, 2020 5:06 pm UTC
That's fair; thanks for the response! I just started making my way through the rule book so will definitely look for the quick campaign and the starting of scenarios. I love The Living Campaign and have almost finished making my way through GMing it. It has become a godsend for learning how to GM and how to work things in/what kinds of problems could arise and possible scenarios of how to resolve those problems. Eventually I'll be brave enough to create some of my own scenarios but for now, I've appreciated having the step-by-step process to ease us into it. I would love to see more of those - especially Klingon ones to help us get started! :)

You'll see Klingon standalone adventures eventually, as well as more on the Shackleton Expanse.

Same feeling here. Nowadays I only buy RPGs that come with complete campaigns. I simply don't have the time anymore to write my own (or takes ages to do that) and / or I need some detailed inspiration. So once there is a full campaign out, my interest will be much higher.

Does the reputation and advancement rules are for Klingons only or should they be used for Federation also ?

There is a small file that tells how to use the revised reputation rules with Starfleet characters.
Customer avatar
Jim J July 07, 2020 1:09 am UTC
Correct. The rules are optional for Starfleet; each gamemaster or group would decide whether to use them or not.

Hi it's a completely new product with all new content on top of the rules, it's not just the original core book

Hello Chris, I have fully understood your point. The point is that I'm only interested on the revised rules, not the new contents on top of the rules...
Customer avatar
Jim J July 08, 2020 5:19 pm UTC
The advancement and reputation rules in the Klingon book are alternative rules to those presented in the Starfleet core rulebook, not replacements. There are no current plans to provide the alternative advancement and reputation rules by themselves.

Just an observation: There don't seem to be any Discovery references in the book. No Klingon Cleave Ship stat block, not even "T'Kuvma" or "Voq" as example PC names.

Not a complaint, just an odd thing to note considering we're two seasons into Discovery's run.
Customer avatar
Jim J July 06, 2020 10:05 pm UTC
Modiphius doesn’t currently have the license to Discovery, thus there’s no Discovery content in the book.

Just adding that the book's contents are based on the Next Generation, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise and pre-reboot movies (as well as the Original Series).

"A complete and updated version of the Star Trek Adventures 2d20 game system." what exactly does it mean? What are the changes?
Customer avatar
Jim J July 06, 2020 6:23 pm UTC
Updated versions of the reputation rules and advancement rules, plus new rules specific to Klingon Houses. We also added more example text and overhauled the rules chapters to make them clearer to follow (hopefully). The ruleset itself is largely unchanged; just clarified.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
