New from licensee Aegis Studios, Found Footage is a chilling adventure set in the mysterious world of Contagion for Savage Worlds. In Found Footage, the heroes must assemble the clues (including photos and videos taken from a victim’s cellphone) to discover exactly what horrible fate befell two innocent victims who strayed too close to the darkness.
Contagion is a dark and terrifying place. On the surface, it looks much like the world you and I live in. Just beneath that surface, in the shadows, rages an ancient conflict between supernatural factions who all seek dominion over the Earth and control over the souls of humanity. As a byproduct of this conflict, various factions have created inhuman monstrosities and released them into the world. While most average people are fortunate enough to never encounter such terrible creatures, those who do find themselves facing things that reason cannot explain.
Found Footage Savage Edition is available now from DriveThruRPG for just $1.95 USD!

If you’re a fan of thief-based fantasy such as the Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks, Michael J. Sullivan’s Riyria Revelations, or Scott Lynch’s Locke Lamora novels, or if you simply yearn for the good ol’ days of The Complete Thief’s Handbook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Guild of Shadows from our friends with SPQR Games is for you!
In Guild of Shadows, players take on the roles of guild members, planning and executing high-end robberies, confidence schemes, smash ‘n’ grab jobs, information gathering assignments, and even the occasional assassination. The Guild of Shadows campaign setting brings a variety of new thief specialties to the Savage Worlds core rules including smuggler, pickpocket, burglar, swindler, enforcer, spy, and assassin. More than 30 custom Edges and Hindrances also bring these rogues to life.
Since successfully Kickstarting the setting, SPQR Games has expanded Guild of Shadows with multiple adventures, detailed city maps, battlemaps, and much more all available via DriveThruRPG. More recently, SPQR Games released an all-new adventure titled Zeppelin Falls that takes characters into the air in a heist set aboard Kurstwahl’s very first airship.
