“Of the Dead” Series Takes on a New Life!
Gun Metal Games now has the exclusive license to continue Daring Entertainment’s “Of the Dead” line of games.
David Jarvis, principal of Gun Metal Games, leapt at the chance to continue Daring Entertainment’s massive zombie apocalypse thriller setting when he heard Lee Szczepanik was stepping away from RPGs to focus on fiction writing. Lee, a fan of Gun Metal Games‘ Interface Zero, is happy to have the line in such capable hands, and will maintain a consulting and approval role to keep the flavor and direction of the series consistent.
We’re looking forward to seeing what comes from such a creative pair. Keep your eyes peeled. You don’t want the walking dead sneaking up on—or by—you!

There’s a trio of excitement on DriveThruRPG right now for Savage Worlds from our licensees.

Kickstart the Superheroic World of Daring Comics!
Help start a whole new world of superheroics with the Daring Comics Kickstarter project! This four-color comic books setting for Savage Worlds comes from the creative team at Daring Entertainment and fully utilizes the Super Powers Companion (Second Edition).
The Kickstarter also includes the plans for multiple Mega-Event books. Think of them as a cross between a Plot Point Campaign and a comics cross-over story arc. Add one of those and—BAM!—you’re ready to start the high-flyin’ action.
The Daring Comics universe and Hellbrood (the first planned Mega-Event book) are definitely worth a look, so be sure to check out the Daring Comics Kickstarter project for full details on the books, the stretch goals, and some amazing make-me-a-part-of-it backer levels. It’ll be gone in a flash!*
*And that’s definitely with a lower-case f. We don’t need to be starting any super-trouble…
Help Usher in the World of the Dead on Kickstarter!
Four years is a long time to live in the rotter lands, the kingdoms of the survivors of the War of the Dead. Trade routes have been established and people are harder now. Resources and labor are the new currency, and a man can make a killin’ off pre-outbreak goods. But is a killin’ enough to buy a miracle some say has been selfishly hidden by those in power, the rumored immunization to the zombie infection?
World of the Dead combines a harsh world of zombie apocalypse with the two-fisted action of Savage Worlds! Check out Daring Entertainment’s World of the Dead Kickstarter for more details and see just what sort of goodies you can get for helping to bring about a new and decidededly dead world order!
Daring Entertainment’s Hellbrood Begins!
Peace, justice, and prosperity are all well and good, but now you fight for the simple survival of the earth itself! Superheroes were a fascinating spectacle of fantasy and celebrity, until the gigantic pods fell from the sky. Weakened from an impossible battle against the world’s most powerful supervillain, the heroes were unprepared for the alien onslaught. In days, cities were destroyed, heroes and villains perished, and billions were turned into the dreaded flesh-ravenous Hellbrood!
Daring Entertainment’s Hellbrood: Countdown to Invasion is a massive six adventure miniseries. Face the world’s deadliest supervillain. Battle on the front lines of a war against an alien race. Save the Earth. So long as heroes draw breath, there is a future. Never let Earth go quietly into the night. The Hellbrood War is just beginning!
Designed for the award winning Savage Worlds role-playing game and the Super Powers Companion, Hellbrood: Countdown to Invasion includes five playable races, new Edges and Hindrances, and new setting rules—including performing Power Stunts and expanding your hero’s capabilities.

The road has been long, hard, and deadly, but everything comes to an end eventually. After two years and 52 adventures in a long-term zombie apocalypse campaign, that includes Daring Entertainment’s War of the Dead.
