The Kaiju are Coming!

Watch this space—or sign up for our newsletter—so you’ll know the moment the kaiju escape!

Dawn of the Daikaiju, an original creation for Savage Worlds by authors Sean Tait Bircher and Robin English-Bircher (Rifts® for Savage Worlds), releases next week! A free Daikaiju Archetypes PDF (with ginormous Figure Flats!) will also release for use with Dawn of the Daikaiju.

In Dawn of the Daikaiju, players take on the roles of giant monsters called kaiju or daikaiju (the terms are used interchangeably and both mean “giant monster”). The Earth is under attack and it’s up to her gargantuan defenders to save her!

Dawn of the Daikaiju contains a Plot Point Campaign, Adventure Generator, specially adapted race creation rules, and new Edges and Hindrances—and it’s all in Kaiju scale!

Each Plot Point features a script for read-aloud fun at the table (whether virtual or IRL). Here’s a snippet:

NARRATOR: The massive, 500-foot-tall monster bashes into the force field again and again. Radiation sparks from his form and electricity answers from the powerful force field. Suddenly, the enormous reptile stops. He looks toward the sea—toward Tokyo—and emits one final wail of anger.

RYUJIN: KREEEEEEEE-ONK!!!

NARRATOR: The Monarch of Monsters dives back into the sea and disappears, but the monsters inside the sanctuary only become more agitated. Now they begin to beat against the field themselves, beating it with their fists, hurling their massive bodies into it, or blasting it with fiery plasma.

TANAKA (whispers to herself): There are too many. The field will not hold. But what has caused this event? What did Ryujin tell them…

Get ready to crush, crumble, and chomp your way through Dawn of the Daikaiju for Savage Worlds! “KREEEEEEEE-ONK!!!”

Savage Rifts® is Coming to Your Virtual Tabletops

Over the weekend (to coincide with Gen Con Online), our own Sean Owen Roberson, line editor and author of the Savage Rifts® product line, joined Rifts® creator and owner of Palladium Books®, Kevin Siembieda for a colossal, two-and-a-half hour chat about all things Rifts®!

While fans of Rifts® are sure to enjoy the entire interview, one of the most exciting exchanges (around the one hour and 35 minute mark) deals with the eventual, official appearance of Savage Rifts® on Fantasy Grounds!

While it’s still early days yet, now that we have Mr. Siembieda’s blessing, it won’t be too long before your Cyber-Knights, Glitterboys, Juicers, and Mind Melters can officially battle horrors from the Rifts® on Fantasy Grounds and all your other favorite VTTs.

The top player from each faction will receive a shiny, acrylic Tombstone Outfit card!

If you’re interested in learning how to play Doomtown online, Pine Box’s volunteers are ready to help! They are also offering a Greenhorn Roundup for those that know Doomtown, but want to check out the virtual version via the Online Card and Tabletop Gaming Network (OCTGN) or Tabletop Simular (TTS) on Steam.

Giddyup, potential Marshals! It all starts by saying “howdy” on the Doomtown Discord server today!
