'The Operations Division Supplemental Rulebook'
Posted by William Niebling on July 11, 2018 @ 10:53 am CT
This will be the second Division Supplemental Rulebook for the game, following The Command Division book (see “Details of New ‘Star Trek Adventures’ Releases Emerge”). The Operations Division focuses on the famous “red shirts” of Starfleet Security, as well as the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, Starfleet Intelligence, and the secretive Section 31. In addition to new character archetypes, the book offers new equipment options and rules for adding them to the game, as well as guidance for gamemasters who want to run a campaign that focuses on Starfleet Operations and an assortment of NPCs. The book also includes Red Alert rules for resolving miniatures-based combat using a streamlined version of the games’ 2d20 system.
The Operations Division book was produced by lead writer Chris McCarver (Marvel Cinematic Universe Guidebook) and includes material written by Andrew Peregrine (Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space), Jack Geiger (A Song of Ice and Fire RPG), John Snead (Blue Rose), and Star Trek Adventures line developer Sam Webb. The Red Alert rules were developed by Mark Latham (The Walking Dead: All Out War) and Sam Webb. The book will be available in hardcover with an MSRP of $34.99. Customers who pre-order the book will also be eligible for a PDF copy, which will be available beginning in September.
The third Division Supplemental Rulebook, focusing on the Sciences Division, is scheduled to release in January.
In November, Modiphius will release a boxed Starter Set for the game as well (see "‘Star Trek Adventures – Starter Set’").
