Whether you’re a fan of the original Flash Gordon comic strips by the great Alex Raymond, you grew up watching the classic film serials starring Buster Crabbe, or you occasionally strike a Freddie Mercury pose and break into the theme song to the 1980 movie whenever someone mentions the word “flash,” TheSavage World of Flash Gordon is for you.
The Savage World of Flash Gordon features nine new playable races, new Edges and Hindrances, brand-new Mongo-Tech gear, new Powers, vehicles (and yes, it does include rocket cycles), Savage Tales, and pages-upon-pages of dastardly villains and ferocious beasts! The Savage World of Flash Gordon also introduces a brand-new setting rule we call… The Cliffhanger!
Along with the 192-page core rulebook, we’re also unleashing the 192-page Kingdoms of Mongo sourcebook packed with all-new information about Mongo’s greatest kingdoms from the dreaded jungles of Arboria to the frozen wastes of Frigia and from Sky City, home of the Hawkmen to the hidden wilderness of Valkr. This volume also features all-new equipment and weapons, adversaries, and Savage Tales aplenty.
And if that weren’t enough, we’re also offering a gorgeous, Tri-Fold Game Master Screen with a 32-page epic adventure, custom Flash Gordon Bennies, dice, full-color poster maps, Action Decks, and so much more!
You have until this Friday afternoon (November 24th) to back the 2nd Edition of All for One: Régime Diabolique from our good friends with Triple Ace Games.
