THE LAST CYCLADE

Ash falls like snow over the mourners lining the shores of Dar Bahri, while smoke from the funeral pyres rises toward Dabaran’s bloodred sun. Far above in the darkness of space, a lone ship waits to enter the portal to Uharu. Its crew stands ready to complete their mission: the ghost ship Zafirah has been found – those who reach her first will most likely unveil the truth behind one of the horizon’s most ominous mysteries…

CORIOLIS - THE LAST CYCLADE

CORIOLIS - THE LAST CYCLADE

Many months ago, the destroyer Zafirah vanished during the same event that sent the cruise liner Ghazali crashing into the Hamura star. Now she is back, in a time when both the aftermath of the Mysticides and the death of the Emissary have shaken the horizon to its foundations. The Coriolis Council and Zenithian authority are questioned, and more and more people revolt against their oppressors. The throat of the Third Horizon is exposed, and this is when something ancient rises from the shadows.

The Last Cyclade is the second part of Mercy of the Icons, the epic and richly illustrated campaign for Coriolis – The Third Horizon. This book contains:

  • Extensive background information for the Game Master, describing the events which threaten the Third Horizon and its inhabitants
  • The Uharan Echo: an adventure set in the darkness of space; a quest to solve a grand and terrifying mystery
  • Mission Generator Tables that let you tailor your campaign and create your own adventures, dealing with the hunt for a foe whose power is rising
  • The Children are the Future, Forked Tongues, Curse of Rusah, and Fire of the Icons: four adventure landscapes that expose the player characters to these troublesome times
  • In the Shadow of the Zenith: a race against time, where the characters return to Coriolis and find themselves at the heart of the horizon’s escalating conflict

OVERVIEW

The heavy aroma of incense and sugared dates spreads from the Market Square on the Coriolis space station. At first glance, nothing seems out of place. Peddlers are loudly pushing their wares along the Promenade, pilgrims flock in prayer before Icon statues in the station’s temples, and courtesans offer candied rose petals to blissful clients under Alkamaar’s space dome.

But the calm is deceptive. A veiled emissary, a representative of powerful lifeforms residing in the depths of the gas giant Xene, has arrived at the station with strange tidings. Rumors are spreading, about displays of terrifying mystical powers and about star systems that are isolating in fear of what’s to come. The Council of Factions, always so outspoken, has gone dead silent.

The Third Horizon is entering a new era, still unknown, shrouded in darkness. Will the future be revealed by the light of the Icons, or by the roaring firestorms of war?

THE CAMPAIGN

The Mercy of the Icons campaign lets the gaming group experience and influence a universally disruptive shift in the history of the Third Horizon, a period of time when a new era is born out of the corrupt and pain-stricken corpse of what has been. Tensions between cultures, factions, and individuals, rooted in the time of the Portal Wars and traceable back to the cradle of human civilization, turn into open conflicts that threaten to evolve into all-out war. And this happens at a time when the people of the Horizon must come together and join forces, for the greatest threat of all is still biding its time, veiled by the Dark Between the Stars…

Mercy of the Icons consists of three episodes following a timeline that starts with the arrival of the mysterious Emissary of Xene and ends when the future of the Third Horizon is decided. The players and their characters will not be passive spectators in the emerging story. On the contrary, if they show themselves worthy of the blessings and mercy of the Icons, they may very well find themselves in the both terrifying and overwhelming position to greatly impact what’s in store for the Horizon and its people.

REVIEWS

Coriolis – The Third Horizon won the ENnies 2017 Judges’ Spotlight Award.

“Coriolis – The Third Horizon certainly is Arabian Nights in Space and so much more. This is a game of discovery, political intrigue and cultural differences. The system is easy to learn, accessible and fast-flowing.”
The Yawning Portal

“Overall, Coriolis is a great book to pick up if you are looking for a space-faring science fiction game. This is one of the easiest games to get into if you are looking to branch out into a new system.”
Geeks a GoGo

“Above all, the setting of Coriolis: The Third Horizon is both enjoyably different and very well designed, pulling the reader in to want and go adventure in the Third Horizon.”
