Massive Space 1889 Double: The Ether Calculator & On the Trail of the Gods Release!

Today we’ve got a treat for Space 1889 fans, with the launch of Space 1889: The Ether Calculator, plus Space 1889: On the Trail of the Gods, two brand new campaigns for Clockwork’s awesome steampunk RPG, now available in both print and PDF on Modiphius.net as part of our Space 1889 collection.

Come face to face with Old Fritz

In Space 1889: The Ether Calculator, you are invited to visit the Silesian Analytical Engine Productions facilities in Wroclaw where they are introduced to the innovative analytical engine ‘Ordination Fabricate OF 2001’, specially designed for operations in the ether. For this purpose, the hosts are planning to test the ‘Old Fritz’, as they fondly call the machine, on board the ether zeppelin ‘Von Neumann’, where the analytical engine is supposed to break a calculating speed record and make the headlines of the world’s newspapers.

Analytical Engines

What starts out as a simple publicity event leads you right in the middle of a criminal investigation and then onto an action-loaded maiden voyage, with demanding tasks for all types of player characters. It requires skills in social interaction, a sharp mind, quick reflexes—but also accurate marksmanship. The Appendix includes an elaborate article on analytical engines in the alternate universe of Space: 1889 and provides optional rules for using these unique artefacts in the game, which is written for the Ubiquity Version of the Space:1889 RPG.

On the trail of the Gods

In Space 1889: On the Trail of the Gods, since the inventors Edison and Armstrong set out on their first journey to Mars in 1870, there has been speculation about visitors from other worlds to Earth as early as the prehistoric times of mankind. Archaeologist Alastair Whitman believes he has found proof. The characters are invited to join the Glasgow International Exhibition in 1888 where they can learn about the latest technological inventions and even meet celebrities like Nicola Tesla. When the exhibition receives threats, they realize that Whitman’s discovery might be an explosive issue: Not just scientists are interested in it, and the characters have to take care that this knowledge does not fall into the wrong hands.
 
Set on Earth, in Glasgow (Scotland), Egypt, and the Sudan you will journey through the Sudan where they will have to beware many dangers, such as the followers of the Mahdi, who are fighting about his succession. A long journey up the Nile will take you into currently unstable territories where the you will be on their own. Will you choose the right company? Will you achieve the rescue of Whitman and escape his persecutors, which is written for the Ubiquity Version of the Space:1889 RPG.
 
We hope you enjoy these latest two releases from the awesome Space 1889 RPG and look out for more great releases, including Space 1889: The Fate of Angahiaa and Savage Worlds editions of these adventures, coming soon,
 
Best wishes,
Modiphius Entertainment
