About this project
Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!
The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!
This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.
MODIPHIUS always gives great value:
- Over £100 worth of PDF's for just £40 (Approx €54 / $60) PDF MASTER Pledge

- Over £170 worth of printed books, miniature & PDF's for £60 (Approx €81 / $91) Print & PDF Master Pledge
Each of these pledges is increasing in value with each day so join in!

In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…
But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.
For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

The 2d20 system is a dynamic, narrative system, designed to produce varied and interesting results from dramatic and action-packed situations. Characters roll two d20s, attempting to roll as low as possible on each one – the more dice that roll low, the more successes the character scores.
Tasks will require one or more successes to be successful, and any successes scored beyond that minimum become Momentum, which can be spent to achieve a variety of advantageous effects. However, this can come at a cost: characters who wish to succeed can push their luck, rolling extra d20s to boost their chances of success and the Momentum they generate. However, each extra d20 comes from the character’s resources – such as ammunition – or adds to a pool of Heat that represents all the things that can go wrong in a mission, which the GM can spend to complicate adventures and scenarios and make the characters’ lives interesting.
You can expect lots of support for 2d20. The system is currently in use with the Mutant Chronicles RPG and the planned Conan and John Carter RPG's from Modiphius with more to be announced.
We are talking to partners about producing German and French editions of the Infinity RPG at a later date. When we have more information on these we will announce them but cannot confirm any dates yet.
We have confirmed with Spanish publisher Nosolorol to produce the Infinity line in Spanish. You can now get a Spanish PDF of the corebook and Player's Guide for £20 (see Pledges).
Modiphius Entertainment was founded by Chris and Rita Birch, and has been running since the spring of 2013 when we launched the big award winning Achtung! Cthulhu RPG. We've since published 12 books, co-published 6 more (including the award winning Mutant: Year Zero) and created a line of miniatures and accessories. In 2014, we re-booted the epic Mutant Chronicles roleplaying game and mid September start shipping the first wave of 17 books with the beautiful 500 page core book and five supplements. This year we launched the Thunderbirds boardgame with Matt Leacock (Pandemic, Forbidden Island, Roll Through The Ages) based on the 50 year old iconic TV series and are shipping them later this month!
You will discover we really care about giving you excellent service, we try to answer questions quickly and work hard to keep a friendly and fun atmosphere. You are joining the Modiphius family - a large community of people passionate about the games we love.
Risks and challenges
Working with a large group of writers, artists, designers and editors, you have to be prepared for real life to sometimes get in the way. We are a family run business and so aim to give people time and space to deal with any issues that arise whilst re-organising and supporting them to maintain our schedule. If anything major happens, we let you know and tell you how we're dealing with it.
We have learned from previous kickstarter projects and spent the last 9 months laying the groundwork for the game, completing playtesting and commissioning the writing. The core rules are complete, the background is in first draft and will be going in to edit during the Kickstarter. We are commissioning all new artwork but have a lot of artists working to get this ready in time for layout to start in late October. Sometimes printers can get overloaded with sudden print work and it can be difficult to book slots when the books are ready and smaller delays are inevitable.
So we are allowing more time than required for delivery to make allowances for unforeseen delays.
We have other Kickstarters in the process of being fulfilled and have successfully shipped over 2000 backer's rewards. Achtung! Cthulhu's final shipment of four books will be during September and October having already delivered 8 books, over 2000 pages in PDF and numerous accessories, Mutant Chronicles main wave ships in print late-September having delivered nearly 1000 pages in PDF. Our Thunderbirds boardgame funded this spring is also shipping at the end of September, just 30 days behind schedule. We have over 6000 happy backers who attest to our service, professionalism, friendliness and our excellent standards of quality in every product we create.
We have expanded our team - each game line has a separate line manager, writing, layout and editing team to reduce the chance of people being overloaded with work. We have gained additional staff to handle logistics, PR, community support and product development and we continue to have one of the best records for customer service in the business.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
