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.

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.

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!
