      @Brian, yes end of June is closing date.

      We'll be looking at other miniatures after launch :-)

    2. Krzysztof 3 days ago

      Will there be miniatures for Okar and First Born? We got a bunch of Red Martians in the unlocked miniatures, but I hope we get minis for Yellow and Black Martians too (as they are "playable races" from the core book.)

      Brian - I PM’d him, and he said that the Pledgemanager will be open at least through the end of June. :)

      Pledge manager still closing on Monday.... correct?

      @ChrisBirch, thanks for the clarification. The "dots" placement on the maps is a nice easy option that makes the Conan skirmish boardgame by Monolith such a joy to play. Hopefully, this will allow the John Carter of Mars tilesets the added reusability value with both the Conan RPG and the skirmish boardgame too.

      Just want to make sure: The pledge manager closes on the 18th of this month, correct? I think that was in one of the last few updates, if I remember correctly.

      Until when will we be able to change our shipping addresses? I'm out of town for part of July, and depending on when you end up shipping, I might need to change the delivery address...but I want to wait until I have a better idea of when the books will be shipped.

    8. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on June 10, 2018

      @Netobvious currently we're using just zone movement like Conan, the system does not require the dots of Conan. We may add something similar for compatibility purposes.

      A Map Tilesets question:
      Will these use the freeform dots-for-location of Conan or the more accurate grid system of the Infinity RPG?

      I am guessing (and hoping) they may be more like the Conan tilesets, especially, since there is already the rules conversion for this John Carter of Mars RPG for play with the grittier Conan rules.

      @Shimbo Slice: Given that we've just been given the beta Word documents I think you can very safely assume that delivery is some months off yet. There's still editing, layout, art, etc. to sort, not to mention all the other elements such as dice production, card production, ad nauseum.

    11. Shimbo Slice on June 5, 2018

      I don't know if this has been mentioned recently and there hasn't been any updates, but is this project anywhere close to being on track for a July delivery?

    12. Steve Hanson on June 1, 2018

      Pedro, yes, the minuatures will be available in the online store after they've all been sent out to backers. As will the books, tiles and accessories. About the only thing that won't be in the store is the limited edition Jeddak version of the core book.

    13. Steve Hanson on June 1, 2018

      Jeff, the date hasn't been set yet, but it should be pretty soon.

      Pedro Duque Fabregas on May 31, 2018

      Will the miniatures be available at your store in the future?

      Sorry if this has been clearly posted somewhere, but I haven't been able to find a closing date for the pledge manager - how long will it be open? (I'm hungrily eyeing the minis but debating the funding lol)

    16. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on May 30, 2018

      Hi folks just checking in, we're off to UK Games Expo tomorrow so if you're there come and say hello, otherwise we'll be doing a proper update in a week or so.

    17. Frederik Wunderlich on May 27, 2018

      @Steve, Thanks, just was not sure from the pledge manager ^^ It would be great to have little note with all the things if they are included in a pledge. i want to avoid buying anything double and am unsure with a few things.

    18. Steve Hanson on May 26, 2018

      @Frederick, Sorry, no they are add ons as we unlocked the three books instead.

      As you probably know, you do get the PDFs.

    19. Frederik Wunderlich on May 26, 2018

      Are the tilesets in print included in the John Carter Dotar Sojak pledge?

      Was toying with ordering extra Zodangans, Helium crew and Tharks for bigger skirmish battles but decided that one set of each was probably enough! Have any of you played the Star Trek Adventures Red Alert or Conan skirmish games? Any good? I guess the rules will be similar for JC

    21. Erekose on May 20, 2018

      Thanks @Chris!

    22. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on May 18, 2018

      @Erekose - it will be after we lock the pledge manager we'l be inviting you to the DriveThru bundle.

    23. Erekose on May 17, 2018

      Quick question - Have the Conan PDFs been released yet or is that going to be after the pledge manager has been locked down? Apologies if it's already been asked . . .

    24. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on May 17, 2018

      @Shari - the pdf's come later once layout is complete. We'll be using feedback from backers on the word docs to make any key edits in the layout process before you see the pdf stage.

      @Damian, you can ask to add items to your pledge manager later before we ship, just email

    25. Erik D. on May 16, 2018

      Thank you Chris and the Modiphius team, you guys have worked so hard on this and I really appreciate all the effort and love that went into this project! You guys rock!

    26. Shari Armstrong on May 16, 2018

      Quick question - I downloaded the files from the pledge manager, but it doesn't seem to have the PDFs. When do we get access to those?

    27. Shari Armstrong on May 16, 2018

      And I submitted my pledge manager list :). Can't wait to get everything!!!!

      Sorry if this is obvious, but it's my first time with Pledge Manager. I went into mine and paid for my shipping costs. I haven't bought any additional material at this point, because of the expense (especially for books due in 2019). Is it possible to add books/accessories later, or do you have to preorder and prepay for everything up front?

    30. Mikko Kauppinen on May 14, 2018

      @Chris - Paypal worked, I'm all set now.

    31. John M. Kahane on May 12, 2018


      Whew! That's a relief. Was worried that I might have flubbed the PM stuff but upon re-reading the little blurb with the text in it, figured that it was meant for the add-on crowd. Nice to be confirmed. :)

      Btw, can't wait for the physical copies of the game materials! That said, I'm looking forward to running the game next weekend at CanGames here in Ottawa! :)


    32. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on May 12, 2018

      @Krinsky yes just a draft
      @Louis - we're leaving this out for now but please message us directly if it's something you'd like to do
      @Paul - the Legacy map is an add on only sorry
      @John - yes it includes those books so they're there as add ons in case people want copies who didn't select a pledge with all the unlocked books in print.
      @Mikko - if you can use paypal great, otherwise let us know
      @Bobby - I believe it's 8.5 x 5.5inches - so roughly digest size but I'll confirm that.

      Re Conan PDF's - when we lock the Pledge Manager we'll invite everyone with access to these to the DriveThru bundle so you'll get it updated as the books are released.

      Louis Counter on May 12, 2018

      With Conan there was an option to collect the books from the office if you lived nearby. Is that not an option with JCoM?

    34. James G Jordan on May 12, 2018

      Thanks, Chris!

      I've adjusted my order accordingly (with the new separate poses). And added Gor Hajus too (the availability of which was a nice bonus)!

      Along with the slight uptick in shipping costs, everything is now paid for. :)

      Paul Liistro on May 12, 2018

      Just to put my mind to rest but is the "Legacy Map of Barsoom & Travel Guide" include with John Carter Dotor Sojat!
      I just hate to miss out if it isn't :(

    36. Netobvious
      on May 11, 2018

      @MikkoKauppinen, there is the "tip jar" to add extra money so you credit card is accepted and also saying thanks to the good folk at Modiphius for creating another wonderful game.

    37. John M. Kahane on May 11, 2018


      I take it that since the Dotar Sojat pledge includex the Wave 2 books, I only need to take it as an Add-on if I want extra copies of those, right?


    38. John M. Kahane on May 11, 2018


      What happened with the Momentum and Doom markers? I didn't see an Add-on for those in the Pledge Manager, and wanted some of those. Or did I miss them somewhere?


    39. Cornelius - FORTHESHADALOO! on May 11, 2018

      @Chris - Thanks. I will be looking forward to that :)

    40. Cornelius - FORTHESHADALOO! on May 11, 2018

      @Mikko - Do you have paypal?

    41. Mikko Kauppinen on May 11, 2018

      The pledge manager shows I should pay £0.28 more to fix my shipping costs. However, my credit card does not allow me to make such a small payment. What should I do?

      Allen White on May 11, 2018

      Sorry but did I miss the update on how to/when to get Conan pdfs?

    43. Brian Caldwell on May 11, 2018

      Thank you Chris! For all your hard work! I'm locked in! :)

      About the blank leather notebook...can you share the dimensions of it?

      Dang, was hoping for the white ape alt parts that were discussed as a possibility.

      Krinsky on May 11, 2018

      Query: the core book PDF available for download currently isn't the full, complete Core Book, but a draft, correct?

    47. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on May 11, 2018

      @Cornelius, the character sheets will be a free download, but yes we may do those and the tokens at a later date

    48. Cornelius - FORTHESHADALOO! on May 11, 2018

      @Chris Birch - Will it be possible to buy the Characters Sheets and no Tokens at a later date?

    49. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on May 11, 2018

      @Bobby - The first plant men and synethic men ARE included in pledges with all the unlocked minis. However the alternative poses of both were not unlocked by a stretch goal so they are add on's only.

      @Paul - no horses at the moment, though I'm sure it would be easy to create

      @James I'll see what we can do on the solo extra poses

    50. Missing avatar

      on May 11, 2018

      Before my question gets buried here.
      It said the plant men and synthetic men mobs are an add on only.
      These are NOT included at any pledge level? Even at the higher ones?
      A while back I asked what was not included at Jeddak of Jeddaks level and it was established that 3 items were NOT included. Is this now a 4th?
