We round up Pulptastic Week with another great Savage Worlds Pick, the most recent release from Pinnacle Entertainment featuring one of the most iconic space-fantasy pulp properties every published – The Savage World of Flash Gordon! Scott Woodward did an amazing job of taking all of that luscious and evocative material and turning it into one of the most advanced and exciting Savage game experiences ever published, and Shane getting “Flash” himself – Sam Jones – to do the Foreword was no small feat, either!
“He’ll save every one of us!”
On the rogue planet of Mongo, a brutal and sadistic tyrant named Ming the Merciless rules from his royal palace at the heart of Mingo City.
Secretly defying the emperor’s reign of terror are the Freemen, revolutionaries banded together from a number of kingdoms around the globe. From the winged hawkmen of Sky City to the ice giants of Naquk, from the water-breathing Coralians to the tree-dwelling Arborians, and from the nomadic lion men to the dwarfs of the Magnetic Mountains, many who have suffered under the drogiron fist of Emperor Ming have united under their own standard to see that the despot is deposed and freedom for all becomes the law of the land.
Inspiring this growing rebellion are three aliens from Earth: Dr. Hans Zarkov, Dale Arden, and Flash Gordon, the man whose face emboldens all who wish to live on a world free of Ming!
The Flash Gordon™ Roleplaying Game core rulebook contains updates to the Savage Worlds core rules system, new rules for powers, races, Edges and Hindrances, gear, rocket ships, and some of the most unique Setting Rules we’ve ever designed! It also includes a gazetteer of the fantastic world of Mongo, a Plot Point campaign, Savage Tales, and a host of heroes, villains, and horrific beasts for the Game Master’s eyes only!
This product requires the Savage Worlds core rules to play.
The Savage World of Flash Gordon is a setting for Savage Worlds based on Alex Raymond’s classic comic strips. It also draws from the Buster Crabbe serials, the Filmation series, and of course the fan-favorite 1980 film starring Sam J Jones (who does a foreword for our core book!)
A 192-page core book, adventures, GM Screen, custom dice, Bennies, miniatures, a 192-page companion called the Kingdoms of Mongo, and even 3D rockets are also available.
