The Blackwood – Kickstarter Pick, 050517

Wait a minute.

American and German folk lore? Wuxia action?

Yup. Savage Worlds.

A fantasy setting and Plot Point Campaign inspired by American and German folklore, and high-flying wuxia action.

Go forth, errants, to walk the Way’s Margin!

The Blackwood is a fantasy setting inspired by folklore and high-flying martial arts action. It’s Grimm’s Tales meets Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It’s The Witcher series meets Kung Fu Hustle. It’s Iron Monkey meets Brotherhood of the Wolf. You are errants, a class of wandering adventurers, who search a landscape of deadly beauty for a way to save the settled folk of the Elder Kingdom from ruin.

A shining kingdom in the middle of a huge, forested wilderness. Warriors who flit through the trees like squirrels. Malevolent woodland spirits and fearsome magical beasts. An absent king, and the threat of corruption and collapse. These are the stories that await under the boughs of the Blackwood.

The Blackwood Errantry Codex is an officially-licensed campaign setting for the award-winning Savage Worlds RPG from Pinnacle Entertainment Group. We’re producing a complete guide to gameplay in the Blackwood, including a full-length Plot Point Campaign, The Way of the Elder King.

The finished book will include:

  • 18 new Edges and 9 new Hindrances  
  • 5 new Races and 5 new Arcane Backgrounds  
  • 4 new Setting Rules full of folkloric whimsy and wuxia action
  • 40+ new creatures and foes
  • A Plot Point Campaign, The Way of the Elder King, complete with Savage Tales
