Of course, it’s impossible to do an Of Swords and Lasers Week without showcasing one of Pinnacle‘s latest masterpieces, The Savage World of Flash Gordon. No setting embraces the swashbuckling heroics, the weird science-and-sorcery mix, and the humanity-among-aliens idea more than Flash Gordon, and Scott Woodward deep-dove into all of the source material to make this one of the best expressions of Savage Worlds yet. It’s also a brilliant preview of all you will see in the new Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (SWADE).
Also, don’t forget the Halloween Sale going on at DriveThruRPG!
“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 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!)
