If the beta rules are already available what does the role of lead writer for Mutant Chronicles Dark Legion entail? Lead writer for the Dark Legion involves developing all the storyline around the Dark Legion force itself, the foul Dark Soul, the Dark Apostles and their Heretic cults, the worlds they come from, their powers and equipment.
I liked the thought of investigating morbid ritual slayings in the back alleys of Luna. I also came up with a host of new dark creatures. And now I get a chance to make some of these concepts a part of the new edition. As the timeline has been expanded there is now the possibility to play just as the dark symmetry rises.
So I get to present a more subtle side of the Dark Legion and the Symmetry as well as the more overt aspects such as the citadels and Nepharites. And a lot of time have also been spent on fleshing out all of the Apostles, adding new and different creatures and motives. There is a lot of tension between Ilian, the most powerful of the Apostles, and her brothers.
This is also a concept that is being addressed and it will be fully explored in the Dark Soul. Want to take part? Not too late? Grab your free copy of Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition now.
