Just a few years ago, the big city went “Savage” with Streets of Bedlam: A Savage World of Crime + Corruption published by FunSizedGames.
Streets of Bedlam is equal parts neo-noir, pulp detective fiction, and a bit of the ol’ ultraviolence thrown into a cement mixer and poured on top a heap of nameless bodies no one will ever miss. It’s a modern urban setting full of despicable people doing despicable things with stories shining light on the dark places of the human heart. It’s about finding diamonds in the rough, about good people in bad situations. The heroes may have questionable means but they almost always have good intentions.
If you’re a fan of video games like GTA, Saints Row, and Pay Day or movies like Sin City and Scarface, Streets of Bedlam: A Savage World of Crime + Corruption is the Savage setting for you!
Head over to the Streets of Bedlam website to learn more, and order the game (and all its supplements) through DriveThruRPG.
And don’t forget to grab a copy of the Savage Worlds Deluxe Core Rules so you can start walking those mean streets today!
Now on Kickstarter, Ghost Ops: An RPG of Covert Operations is a new title from Savage Worlds licensee FeralGames set in the world of Military Special Operations. PCs are members of a Black Ops team made up of international Elite Special Forces Operatives sent out to the worst trouble hotspots in the world.
The game will cover Eastern European crime organizations, South American drug cartels, international terrorist cells, and African warlords to name just a few. In one mission you could be assaulting a tanker in the Indian Ocean and in the next, find yourselves in the jungles of the Congo taking down Guerilla forces.
If you love video games like Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, and Call of Duty then this is the tabletop roleplaying game you’ve been waiting for to immerse you in the world of Special Operations.
The Savage Worlds edition of the game will include unique Edges and Hindrances and also new Squad Edges that the whole team benefits from as they grow and work together. Players will choose which international Special Forces unit they came from and gain unique benefits from those. They will then choose their Archetypes, from Assault, to Recon, to Specialist, and so forth. The Savage Worlds book will also have rules for taking your characters into the Savage Worlds Showdown skirmish rules, new vehicle rules, and also rules for canine companions.
Originally released back in 2003 (and then updated with a new edition in 2011), 50 Fathoms, written by “Cap’n” Shane Lacy Hensley, was one of the very first Plot Point Settings ever released for Savage Worlds.
Starting in March of 2015, the folks with DiceHaven launched a 50 Fathoms campaign that just wrapped after an impressive 35 sessions and almost two-and-a-half years of play!
If you’ve been thinking of hoisting your sails to pay a visit to the drowned world of Caribdus, cast your eye over the adventures, campaign charter, character bios, blogs, and more available over in the 50 Fathoms Campaign section of the DiceHaven website.
We can’t wait to see where the DiceHaven team goes next!
