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.
From the campaign:
The Goon™ Roleplaying Game is based on the multiple Eisner Award-winning comic, The Goon™, by Eric Powell.
Feast them peepers on a samplin’ of what we got lined up for ya in this 192-page extravaganza:
A guide to the Town’s mean streets and deadly secrets
New Edges and Hindrances so your character can toughen up and be like Goon
Setting Rules to help you bring the comedy and tragedy of Goon and Franky’s pulp-noir world to life
An adventure generator full of ideas to help build your own Goon™ stories
An unholy pack of shock-inducing Grievous Yarns (Savage Tales)
All the most infamous tough guys, lugs, dames, and evil, icky things from the comic’s entire run—with Savage Worlds game statistics
And an original Plot Point Campaign…one that sees the return of a few of Goon and Franky’s oldest and hillbilly-est enemies!
It’s printed in a whopping 192 pages of graphic novel format and available in Limited Edition hardcover, so lemme tell ya, bub—this is one game you won’t wanna miss!
The campaign is doing well. It’s more than 4x funded and still has 13 days left to go.
