Necessary Evil Alien Update

NE_Aliens_Update_Cover_5ibThose sinister v’sori trapped your Necessary Evil: Breakout  in the limbo of game development, but hopefully only for a week more!

While you’re waiting, though, we have a free release for you, the Aliens Update for Necessary Evil (the first).  The original Necessary Evil used its own super powers system—the first one we created, in fact. Necessary Evil: Breakout uses the far more recent Savage Worlds Super Powers Companion. For those of you who want to play the original Necessary Evil, this supplement updates the k’tharen, v’sori, and their vehicles.

Check out Necessary Evil: Aliens Update today for a sneak peek at some of the changes in store for your heroes, and watch this space for more on Necessary Evil: Breakout!

They’ve met their funding goals, so we can already look forward to this exciting new fantasy setting coming to Savage Worlds from the Italian-language gaming scene. With your support and a last-minute rally, who knows how many late-game stretch goals they can achieve? Backers have already “unveiled” an adventure by Enascentia author Edoardo Dalla Via, and the next stretch goal adventures are penned by Umberto Pignatelli (Beasts & Barbarians), Sean Fannon (Savage Rifts, Shaintar), and Darren Pearce (Doctor Who RPG, Savage Suzerain).

Be sure to check out the Enascentia Kickstarter for full details on backer rewards and stretch goals, and be sure to tell all your friends, too!
