Sherwood: The Legend of Robin Hood RPG For Savage Worlds 2nd Edition Up On Kickstarter

Just about all of us know of the story of Robin Hood.

If you’d like to join that band (green tights sold separately), now is your chance with Sherwood: The Legend of Robin Hood. The fantasy RPG is up on Kickstarter now, looking to fund a 2nd Edition of the book for the Savage Worlds game system.

Flash Gordon RPG Up On Kickstarter

Ok, I might not be able to sound like Freddy Mercury (but, honestly, who can?), but I can still dream. And in the Flash Gordon RPG, you can become part of the classic sci-fi world (I’ll even come and sing the theme song for you… but you probably wont want me to). This is the official setting book using the Savage Worlds system. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

The Silence of Hollowind Urban Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

The Silence of Hollowind is a new urban fantasy RPG. For those that don’t know what that is, it means a fantasy world, but set more in cities akin to what you’d find in a noir setting. So less elves hopping between trees and more dwarves in trenchoats heading into their office job. In this particular setting, Magic has been heavily regulated, mostly outlawed, due to various circumstances. Living in such a world and surviving while the oppressive government looks down on you is where you find yourself. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Era: Balam Sci-Fi RPG Up On Kickstarter

I wish I could be a fighter pilot.
No, really. Back when I was a kid, that was near the top of my list of things I wanted to do. Unfortunately, I’ve got godawful eyes and so Top Gun academy was never really in my fates. But I can live vicariously through my RPGs. And what’s better than a fighter pilot? A fighter pilot in space, of course! And that’s just what you get to be in Era: Balam, a sci-fi RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Gaslight Victorian Fantasy 3rd Edition Up On Kickstarter

From time to time, a game can use a bit of a makeover. With changing times comes changing tastes in rules and attitudes towards different mechanics. With multiple playthroughs, sometimes a discrepancy is found. Or maybe a game has just lost its polish and could use a good buff. Whatever the case, new editions come out. In this case, Battlefield Press is coming out with the 3rd edition of Gaslight Victorian Fantasy, their alternate-history setting that uses the Savage Worlds game system. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Super Powers Unleashed For Savage Worlds Up On Kickstarter

Just about all of us wish we had some form of super power. Maybe it’s super speed, or flight, or heat-vision, or weather control. Whatever it might be, heading out and fighting crime with our powers (or perhaps being a super villain) isn’t really something we can do. But we can all live vicariously through RPGs. One such, Super Powers Unleashed, that uses the Savage Worlds system, is up on Kickstarter now.

Shaintar: Thundering Skies RPG Campaign Up On Kickstarter

Shaintar has been around as a setting for quite some time. Now, they’re looking to add more to it with a plot point campaign that takes you all around the fantastic world.

The Goon, Savage Worlds, Up On Kickstarter

It’s always cool when a bit of pop culture gets its own gaming rules. You have enjoyed watching/reading about the various characters and the world they inhabit, and now you feel like you’re able to join them in their adventures. As such, folks that are fans of The Goon comic will love to hear that the dark, pulp universe is getting a set of rules to go with it. And they’re ones you know, too, as it’s coming to Savage Worlds. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Midweek Snippets

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently have water in the apartment (the county is coming out today to figure out what’s up with that). Whatever it might be, if I’m going to make it through the rest of the week, I need to power up with some bite-size gaming stories.

Today we have: Mantic Games Announces The Walking Dead: All Out War Premium Collector’s Edition Diorama, Khurasan releases late 16th century landsknechts, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm February Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, MegaMinis Running Robots Kickstarter, Journey To Ragnarok Coming To Kickstarter Soon, Final Day for Savage Worlds: Zombie Squad On Kickstarter, New Legionary Heavy Weapon Platform: Quad Heavy Thunder Gun Available From Kromlech, and Elder Dice Kickstarter Happening Now.

Savage Worlds Zombie Squad Up On Kickstarter

So it’s the far future. You’re ex-military. You’re also a criminal. The government could put you away forever. Or it could utilize your skills and put you to work in the far reaches of space, dealing with things that no sane person should ever have to deal with. That’s what’s going on in Zombie Squad, the Savage Worlds version of which is up on Kickstarter now.

Olympus, Inc. Now Available In .PDF

I have some friends who are followers of the old Norse gods. Like, legit-wise. You hear about that from time to time, but you don’t hear too many people saying they’re followers of the old, Olympian pantheon. Maybe that’s by design. Maybe it’s because there’s a secret war going on between Olympians and Titans all around us, but we’re just blind to it. That’s what’s going on in Olympus, Inc., which is now available digitally for all you .PDF lovers out there.

Savage Worlds Edition of Contagion Now Available

Sometimes you see a game world that you think is really cool, but you’re not sure you can get your group to try it out because it’s not a system they like using. Sure, you could do your best to convert everything over to an equivalent in your group’s desired system, but that can be rather tedious. Well, the folks over at Aegis Studios have helped out for those groups that like the Savage Worlds system by converting their Contagion game to use it.

Friday Snippets

Seems just about everything is going on this weekend. PAX, Nova Open, and Dragon*Con are all happening… well, right now, actually. If you’re at one of the shows, awesome. I hope you’re having a blast. If you’re not, well, at least we still have Friday going for us, which is nice. Either way, we should fuel up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New Secutarii Hoplite and Peltast Upgrade Kits From Forge World, New Legionary Breacher Bike From Kromlech, The Painting Frog Posts Rumble in the Jungle 2 – The Aftermath, Rebel Minis Dark Hold Goblin Adventures RPG Funded, War Titans: Invaders Must Die Coming To Kickstarter, Battle Gnomes Card Game Coming To Kickstarter, FossilPunk Foundry Unveils Sauriana 54mm Miniatures Game, The Red Sector Cleanup Crew Available To Order From Nexus Miniatures, and Purgatory Box Cover is released.

Midweek Snippets

This week just seems to be screaming by. At least, I feel it is. I’m hoping yours is going by well-enough. I feel it’s mostly because it’s been rather busy over on this side of the screen. Various proofing projects have been passing over my desk. What can I say? I enjoy editing.

Anyway, if I’m going to make it through the rest of the week, I need to power-up on bite-sized gaming stories.

On today’s platter we have: Cold Steel Wardens: Rogues Gallery Kickstarter on Final Day, Microworld Games Releases 6mm Space Rats and Space Ogres, NonsenseMiniatures Releases Ajax, War Co. Kickstarter Already Funded and 2 Weeks to Go, New Viking Banner Bearer From Brother Vinni, Carrotia Funded With 12 Days Left on Kickstarter, Nexus Miniatures Previews Demogorgon, Tabletop-Art Previews Viking Raid cavalry bases, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Round 2 Kickstarter launched, Deadlands Double-Shot Kickstarters Coming Soon, and Final Hours for Lords of Rock on Kickstarter.

Holy Crap: The Great Sects Change Operation Book For the Low Life RPG Up On Kickstarter

Andy Hopp has, for quite a while, amused us with his odd drawings of curious creatures. Not too long ago, he came out with an RPG that lets you jump into the skin of one of these oddities and live in their world. Well, like our everyday world, there are religions in the Low Life RPG world. Lots of them, in fact. Holy Crap: The Great Sects Change Operation (which, by the way, I think is a hilariously fun name for a game book) looks to bring all of those religions to your gaming table. And even if you don’t play the game, it’s designed to just be a fun read.

The Year of New Editions comes up with another. This time it’s the 3rd Edition of Mutant Chronicles by Modiphius, formatted to be used with the Savage Worlds game system.

All of the conversions have already been done for you.

Herald: Lovecraft & Tesla Savage Worlds RPG Up On Kickstarter

So, it would seem that all the books that H.P. Lovecraft wrote weren’t just some crazy stories he decided to jot down. They were, instead, notes from investigations that he was doing into the strange, other-worldly beings that were seen invading into our own reality with ever-increasing regularity. Along with the likes of such people as Nikola Tesla, Amelia Earheart, Harry Houdini, Marie Curie, Babe Ruth, Charlie Chaplin, and many other of the 20’s most famous people, it’s a race against the elder gods to save the Earth. That’s the story behind Herald: Lovecraft & Tesla (which is based on the Action Lab comic series as well). They’re up on Kickstarter now.

Olympus Inc For Savage World Launches on Indiegogo

This is actually a relaunch of sorts. Due to a technical error, the original campaign was cancelled. But now they’re back and on Indiegogo. The substance of the campaign is the same, though the goal has been lowered slightly and there’s a shorter, overall, funding period for it.

Weird War I for Savage Worlds RPG Up On Kickstarter

I know I’ve mentioned before that I find it a little sad that World War II gets “almost all the love” when it comes to hobby gaming, since I find World War I all the more interesting. It was the war that pretty much defined the 20th century and introduced a lot of the weapons of war that are still in use today (though obviously heavily modified from their damn-near prototype versions from back then). So with that said… err… typed… I bring you Weird War I for Savage Worlds, which is up on Kickstarter now.

New Urban Fantasy Setting Book from Fabled Environments Up On Kickstarter

A secret war is being fought all around us at all times.
And no, I’m not in need of a tinfoil hat. This isn’t some conspiracy like that.
No! This type of conspiracy involves the Greek gods and Titans that are in a constant war all around us, hidden from our view under penalty of death!
Ok, maybe I do need a tinfoil hat. That is, unless the actions of Olympus Inc, a new urban fantasy sourcebook that’s up on Kickstarter, are actually true.

Accursed: World of Morden RPG Book Up On Kickstarter

The RPG Kickstarters continue on. Once more we swing our way to the fantasy side of things with Accursed: World of Morden. But Accursed isn’t your shining, gleaming, fancy sort of fantasy setting. No, this is a world where evil definitely has the upper hand on things. Travel is even more dangerous than usual for an RPG game, and heroes are a lot fewer and further between (but certainly are needed a lot more).

High-Space Sci-Fi Setting for Savage Worlds Up On Kickstarter

Playing a tabletop RPG lets you stop being your regular self in your regular life for a while and escape to new worlds and new adventures. Well, adding even more new worlds to those new worlds is a good thing. Such is the case with the Kickstarter I’m talking about here. High-Space is a sci-fi RPG setting on its own, but now it’s coming to Savage Worlds and expanding out from what is already published for the game.

Final Week for Savage Worlds: Rippers Resurrected On Kickstarter

There are plenty of things out there that go “bump” in the night.
… like my upstairs neighbor who seems to feel the need to walk around at all hours of the night doing god knows what…
But there are other things as well, like werewolves, vampires, and other spooky things that love to eat innocent bystanders. That’s where the Rippers come in. I know, it seems like the Rippers would be something you’d fight against, but that’s just not the case. The Savage Worlds book for Rippers Resurrected is in their last week over on Kickstarter.

Family Affair: a new Savage Worlds adventure from Fabled Environments

Organized Crime has ways to make sure that their illegal activities are covered up. From simply denying that they know what happened to someone that’s gone missing, to claiming, “it fell off a truck” when they’re found to have goods they didn’t pay for. But making sure the money looks clean is possibly the most important. We know that it was Tax Evasion that eventually brought down Al Capone. Well, the Scalducci Family has a master bookkeeper known only as “Mr. Lewis.”

Enascentia High Fantasy TRPG for Savage Worlds Up On Kickstarter

Enascentia. It’s not the new fragrance from Calvin Clone. It’s the high-fantasy RPG setting by GGStudio, using the Savage Worlds rules set, and originally published in Italian.

Detroit. It’s sort of a mess. And in The Thin Blue Line supplement for Savage Worlds, it’s even worse than you’ve been seeing on the news. There are angry spirits, dangerous supernatural creatures, and a secret cult on the rise. Ok, now for what’s different from reality… Just kidding.

Minis Add-On For The Sixth Gun RPG Previewed

Weird West has been a pretty popular genre, especially lately. With the rise of Blackwater Gulch, Shadows of Brimstone, and Wild West Exodus, among others, more and more gamers are heeding the call of “Go West, young man (and woman).” The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter is also going like gangbusters, already more than 5x their original funding goal. To get things going even further, they’ve asked the fellows over at Bronze Age Miniatures to whip up a set of minis to go with the RPG module. You can add these to your pledge if you so choose.

Pinnacle Entertainment Group Launches The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter

Saddle up and get ready to ride, hombre, because Pinnacle Entertainment Group and Oni Press are bringing the wild west to your tabletop with The Sixth Gun, coming to Savage Worlds. The Sixth Gun is a comic series by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt that focuses on the search for the sixth gun. You see, during the Civil War, six pistols of unimaginable power were found. Each one had a unique power associated with it. The sixth was the most powerful, said to be able to rewrite all of creation, itself. Well, the darn thing’s gone missing. An object like that is probably something you don’t want just kicking around anywhere.
