Herald: Lovecraft & Tesla – Sean’s Pick, 022119

Today is the start of Genghis Con 42 (“The Answer”), and I am currently scrambling with all the last-minute stuff. Evil Beagle Games is proud to be a sponsor of the show, which is well-known as a Savage Worlds center of activity. That’s why we’re celebrating Savage Genghis Week, and why Herald: Lovecraft & Tesla is one of this week’s Picks.

If ever I were to play a game that featured the Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft (which long-time readers know is not something I am a fan of, personally), this would be it. The concept of the Mythos Resistance and the cool factors of early-Pulp adventure and “Tesla-tech” draws me right in.

Welcome to the Roaring Twenties!

A decade filled with adventure and the spirit of invention.

This is the Jazz Age, the days of dangerous new technology, of cults, talismans, kidnappings, coded messages, mafia-controlled moonshine, mysterious transatlantic plane disappearances, stunning astronomical discoveries and breakthroughs in the burgeoning field of quantum physics. Underneath it all, a cabal of smiling villains pushes their plan to relegtate humanity to the ash heap of unrecorded history.

But there are those who do their part to keep the world safe from the unnatural invaders from beyond the stars. Yes, beyond! Unspeakable elder gods and Mythos creatures are arriving from far, far away, while other are awakening at last from deep below. 

This is where you come in. Welcome to the Mythos Resistance.

Science meets fiction in the Roaring Twenties.

This sourcebook greatly expands the Action Lab comic book series into a fully realized, officially licensed Savage Worlds setting.

New options for player characters include new Edges, new Hindrances, over 50 pregenerated ready-to-play historical characters, Tesla-tech weapons and inventions, dozens of 1920s vehicles, items, and NPCs, H.P.’s Mythos creature bestiary, detailed maps and location information for Providence, Arkham, Miskatonic University, and many of the other hot-spots around the world, One Sheets, adventures, plot-point campaigns, and much, much more.
