Gareth Skarka‘s love of the classic pulps combined very handily with the core pulp nature of Savage Worlds, thus bringing about the Thrilling Tales line. With loving detail of the genre and the era, the line provides tons of great material for anyone wanting to run during the 20s-40s era, or wants to delve into the classic sources of what we call “pulp.” That makes it a great choice for Pulptastic Week!
Pulp is back!
Grab your fedora and your ivory-handled .45s and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime as Thrilling Tales unleashes the pulse-pounding excitement of the pulp magazines and cliffhanger serials of the 1930s and 40s into the Savage Worlds rules system!
This exhaustive guide to the genre features a timeline of the 1930s, information on pulp-era weapons & vehicles, a guide to pulp villains including Nazis, the Thugee and Perils of the Orient, a Random Adventure Generator, and a complete fifteen-chapter Plot Point serial campaign, The Crimson Emperor!
