John Carter of Mars - Adventures on The Dying World of Barsoom is a planetary romance tabletop role-playing game. It has been created under license and with the cooperation of the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs, author of the original Barsoom novels. Modiphius also had guidance of Scott Tracy Griffin one of the leading scholars of his works to ensure utmost authenticity.
Using a pulp-action inspired narrative variant of Modiphius' 2d20 system, Momentum, John Carter of Mars allows players to take the role of various adventurers and heroes as they travel, battle, and romance their way across the wondrous and dangerous world known to its natives as Barsoom. Play as John Carter, the princess Dejah Thoris or the fearsome Thark warrior Tars Tarkas - or create your own new heroes from a wide variety of options.
The core book is fully written, and now in layout, depending on what other books are unlocked in the line, Modiphius will be aiming for one shipment in the summer prior to a retail release in the fall. As soon as the Kickstarter closes and payments have been processed gamers will be given access to the complete documents for the core book as well as the full PDF before print, to provide last minute proofreading.
