While we’ve already posted about a few of these Kickstarters over the past couple weeks (including one just today), Egg Embry, over at T’essera – A Creative Guild, recently highlighted a few upcoming licensed Savage Worlds products worth supporting. Embry offers details on each of the items as well as his own thoughts and opinions.

Game On Tabletop pre-orders for both The Goon™RPG and Fear Agent™ RPG will officially close this Thursday, October 5th.
For just $145 each, you get everything promoted in the individual Kickstarters including the rulebook, GM screen, adventure, PDFs, custom Bennies, dice, and miniatures. And don’t forget, many of our overseas friends will enjoy discounted shipping as these pre-orders will ship along with the original Kickstarter backers. That means EU-friendly and Australian-friendly and we’re also looking into options to ship “friendly” to other countries (where we pay the customs taxes for you).
For more information, visit Game On Tabletop today before it’s game over for these pre-orders.
Our many amazing licensees never cease to amaze us with their incredible products, whether custom settings for Savage Worlds, useful apps, or even non-specific accessories to augment the gaming experience. With so many items currently on (or heading to) Kickstarter, we thought we’d share a bunch of ’em with you in case you’re looking for some worthwhile ways to spend that hard-earned moola.
With just a couple days left in its Kickstarter campaign, The Cold Cash War (Battlefield Press, Inc.), based on the novel by Robert Asprin, is looking for your support! In this unique setting, you play a government agent, mercenary hired by a corporation, an information broker, or a corporate executive. Get involved in corporate espionage, assassination, or even just stomping the enemy. Be sure to check out all the generous add-ons including several other Savage Worlds products produced by Battlefield Press, Inc.
From Loxley, Inc. and legendary designer, Frank Mentzer (Dungeons & Dragons), Empyrea is a classic fantasy RPG setting with roots going all the way back to the 1970s! Loxley, Inc. has launched a Kickstarter to fund the publication of this setting for a number of tabletop RPG systems including, of course, Savage Worlds! Empyrea is designed and illustrated by some of the biggest names in roleplaying game history and it promises to be something very special, indeed!
Fans of dieselpunk (think 1920s-1950s) will want to check out Frozen Skies from Utherwald Press. Frozen Skies is set on the continent of Alyeska, an icy frontier plagued by savage beasts, cut-throat sky pirates, harsh weather, and eons old dark secrets. Despite these many dangers, Alyeska is worth exploring, chiefly for the ruins and artifacts of the Ancient Terrans buried beneath the ice and for a valuable mineral that is the fuel for a new Industrial Revolution that the world finds itself on the cusp of… but only if the new technology can be made viable.
Titan Effect (Knight Errant Media) is set in a contemporary world where psychic spies clash with genetically-enhanced soldiers in a secret war in which the future of human evolution is at stake. Take on the role of a trained operative gifted with psychic abilities. Perform dangerous missions all over the world for the international clandestine organization known as the SPEAR, and fight against dangerous creatures and organizations. Survive long enough, and maybe you will be able to make a difference.
Finally, while not a Savage Worlds product per se (though fans of Rippers may want to take a look), Sigil Entertainment Group will soon be launching a Kickstarter for their much-anticipated Classic Horror Playing Card Deck at noon on Friday the 13th (can you think of a better date?) This 54-card deck features custom faces that bring Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, and other horror icons to life with lush illustrations and intricate design. The award winning creative team behind this deck includes: Aaron Acevedo, Arnold T. Blumberg, Chris Bivins, James Denton, Jason Engle, Bien Flores, and Cheyenne Wright. Be sure to Like the Sigil Entertainment Group Facebook page so you don’t miss out on your chance to own this phenomenal card deck.
Heads up, Savages! Game On Tabletop pre-orders for both The Goon™RPG and Fear Agent™ RPG will officially close on Thursday, October 5th, so be sure to jump on these deals soon!
For $145 each, you get everything promoted in the individual Kickstarters including the rulebook, GM screen, adventure, PDFs, custom Bennies, dice, and miniatures. Also note that for those who have ordered the Goon™ dice, you’ll be getting the new set as the old sets are now out of stock at our supplier.

Now on Kickstarter, Era: Balam from Shades of Vengeance, is a science fiction roleplaying game celebrating the 40th anniversary of the launch of Voyager 1:
When our space probe arrived on an alien world, it crash-landed on one of their power stations and the resulting disaster rendered their world uninhabitable. Seeking revenge, and a new world to live on, the aliens escaped from their world on a massive ship and set a course along the path of the probe…
They encountered humanity at a remote outpost many years later, in a system known as HX-7371. More recently, it has come to be known as the “Killing Fields,” as the war between the aliens’ superior forces and the fighters the humans have been able to cobble together has now lasted two years.
The main colony in the system, Balam, is well-hidden, but if the aliens were ever to find it, they would be able to find their way to Earth… and that might mean extinction.
You’ll have the chance to explore various planets and the space around them: Fly over icy plains to track down an important salvage opportunity, brave the depths of space for scouting missions and land on the moons of a spectacular Gas Giant as you explore and attempt to stop the aliens from completing their mission…
Shades of Vengeance recently became an officially-approved Savage Worlds licensee and they are working with veteran designer Dave Blewer (Achtung! Cthulhu, Sundered Skies) on the Savage Worlds edition of the game.
For more information about Era: Balam please check out and support the Kickstarter today!
