Adventure Wargaming in the Hidden War
Based on the CLASH of Spears miniatures game by Alvaro and Francisco Erize, Cohors Cthulhu Adventure Wargaming in the Hidden War will launch in the Spring of 2024
This project is a collaboration between Modiphius co-founder Chris Birch and CLASH of Spears creators Alvaro and Francisco (voted Best Game Wargames Illustrated 2020). Chris approached the brothers to utilise the CLASH of Spears mechanics to create a solo and co-op adventure wargame set in the Roman empire but where the legionaries and tribes must contend with cosmic forces, eldritch horrors and former allies twisted to serve the outer gods.
This is a completely new core rule book. The CLASH of Spears rules have been stripped back to the bare essentials and meshed with an innovative new AI and narrative engine to power your stories on the battlefield. Designed for solo and co-op play, the rules have been written to get you playing from the moment you open the book. Players create their heroes and see them evolve as they follow a planned storyline and procedural campaign led by player choices unfolding as they play.
Starting with a lone soldier fleeing a terrifying ambush, you will lead a growing force of Roman legionaries, Tribal warriors and heroes from across the empire in a series of hidden wars against the armies of the scheming evil Outer gods. They have influenced and corrupted Germanic tribes, ancient Atlanteans and foul cults to fight against you and summon terrifying mythos creatures to fight by their side.
