Savage Kickstarter Countdown – Kickstarter Picks, 041117

There’s a number of Savage Worlds Kickstarters coming up on their endpoints, and they’re all fantastic additions to the amazing library of places and ways to play one of the world’s favorite game systems.

Mythic is a setting for the Savage Worlds RPG system based on the myths and legends of ancient Earth.

Mythic: Ennam & Saduri is an expansion book for the Mythic campaign setting for the Savage Worlds roleplaying game, which takes several cultures and mythologies from real world Earth and places them all together in a new and unique world. The Mythic setting book includes three cultures and mythologies: Pridith, based on the Celts; Illosia, based on the Greeks; and Niserri, based on the Egyptians. Mythic: Ennam & Saduri adds two new cultures and mythologies: Ennam, based on Mesopotamia; and Siduri, based on Vedic India.

This supplemental book includes new character creation information for creating characters from the new Saduri and Ennam cultures, as well as rules for summoning and binding the numerous demonic entities that plague both of these civilizations. Each culture is described in detail, including descriptions of some of the major deities from each culture’s pantheon. Finally, Mythic: Ennam and Saduri contains a bestiary that includes stats and descriptions for 25 creatures pulled from Mesopotamian and Vedic Indian mythology.

A new RPG setting for Savage Worlds based on the Fear Agent™ graphic novels from Dark Horse Comics™!

Based on the amazing comic series by Rick Remender, Tony Moore, and Jerome Opeña, the Fear Agent™  Roleplaying Game is a pulp scifi setting for Savage Worlds with more twists than an episode of the Twilight Zone!

After Earth is devastated by an interstellar war between two alien races, the few surviving members of humanity are dragged kicking and screaming into a complex galaxy of terror and adventure they didn’t even know existed.

Fortunately—or maybe unfortunately, we told you there are some twists—Texan Heath Huston bands together with others of his ilk to form the Fear Agents, a ragtag collection of survivors intent on revenge.

What happens next? Well, that’s up to you, the newest recruits in what is almost certainly a suicide mission. But it will be one hell of a ride!

A new RPG setting for Savage Worlds based on The Goon™ graphic novels from Dark Horse Comics™!

The Goon™ Roleplaying Game is based on the multiple Eisner Award-winning comic, The Goon, by Eric Powell. 

Feast them peepers on a samplin’ of what we got lined up for ya in this 192-page extravaganza:

  • A guide to the Town’s mean streets and deadly secrets
  • New Edges and Hindrances so your character can toughen up and be like Goon
  • Setting Rules to help you bring the comedy and tragedy of Goon and Franky’s pulp-noir world to life
  • An adventure generator full of ideas to help build your own Goon™ stories
  • An unholy pack of shock-inducing Grievous Yarns (Savage Tales)
  • All the most infamous tough guys, lugs, dames, and evil, icky things from the comic’s entire run—with Savage Worlds game statistics
  • And an original Plot Point Campaign…one that sees the return of a few of Goon and Franky’s oldest and hillbilly-est enemies!

It’s printed in a whopping 192 pages of graphic novel format and available in Limited Edition hardcover, so lemme tell ya, bub—this is one game you won’t wanna miss!

This game ain’t about heroes, per se. More like antiheroes. Join the Goon’s crime syndicate—or play as Goon, Franky, and the rest of their crew—and fight off the rival gangs what’s encroachin’ on your turf, while you collect on Goon’s debts and whatnot. You might also succeed at fighting off the tide of bleak suffering that’s set to consume yer soul. Then again you might not!

But while you’re contemplatin’ the psychology and so forth, make sure to watch out for Zombie Priest and his legions of groanin’, brain-chomping zombies; they’re a constant hassle. If that ain’t bad enough, there’s crazed-yet-brilliant Dr. Hieronymus Alloy and his robots goin’ on a rampage every other week. You also want to keep a lookout for swarms of chug-heads…what they call “changelings.” Yeah. They’re nasty little buggers.

Believe me, pal, we ain’t even got to the worst of it yet. You sure you wanna join up with Goon’s crew?

Shaintar is the Epic High Fantasy setting from Sean Patrick Fannon for the award winning Savage Worlds tabletop roleplay system.

This is Shaintar’s first plot point campaign, complete with Savage Tales and all the trimmings.

The living campaign is a form of collaborative storytelling. It’s pretty amazing and here’s how it works: every game that takes place in the community affects the story line for that year. The events of one group may affect others while progressing the overall story arc to a dramatic conclusion.

Best of all, events that happen in Justice & Life change the world, permanently. They become part of the lore of Shaintar, so participants from all over the world have a chance to write the future of the entire setting.

In 2013 the year in Shaintar was 3123… the year of Thundering Skies.

Shaintar’s first worldwide campaign event saw strange beings appear – wind wraiths, lightning elementals and storm magi, among many others. These elemental beings weren’t from Shaintar, but the storm magi were native beings transformed by the Godstrike Tempest. Intelligent and powerful, they’d figured out how to control these storm beasts and used them as a powerful combat force to fulfill their secret master’s agenda.

Who’s the secret master? What’s the agenda? Justice & Life was mobilized. Heroes scrambled to defend Shaintar and repel the attacks, to investigate and strike back.

That’s the basic story, but what’s next?
