New Adventures for ETU and Weird Wars: Rome!

Nox Germanica for Weird Wars: RomeClass Ring for East Texas UniversityWe’re happy to bring you two new adventures this week. Whether you’re burning the midnight oil studying for exams or watching the barbarian hordes that would invade Rome herself, fate is definitely in your hands.

In Class Ring for East Texas University, a late night with the books brings the ghost of a beautiful young woman seeking help. Why does she haunt the Language Arts building? Who was she? What can a bunch of college students do about it—and are you up to it?

Nox Germanica for Weird Wars: Rome takes you to the dark, dripping forests of Germania, a trackless land of barbarians, mystery, and fear. Here on the Limes Germanicus, the walls, towers, and ditches built to keep Rome safe, you begin to wonder if there isn’t something far more sinister lurking in the dark forests than resistance. If there is, is there any way to keep it at bay? This full-length adventure also includes designs for a Roman castrum (castle).

Kickstart the Superheroic World of Daring Comics!

Daring Comics Kickstarter ProjectHelp 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…

Sail the Haunted Straits of the Broken Earth

The Haunted Straits for Broken EarthRebuilding commerce in a post-apocalyptic Northern Midwest is a good way to make money. Boat trade should be an easy way to connect Wright Town to Geneva and Scrap City on Lake Michigan. Once on the lake, they may even be able to reach the open sea if the pre-War maps are right at all.

But first there’s the Haunted Straits. Is it really filled with vengeful spirits driving away outsiders? Can it be allowed to blocked progress? Can you stop it if it tries?

The Haunted Straits describes an isolated community, the history of the area, and the important NPCs. The Haunted Straits is filled with plot points specifically for the ENnie nominated Broken Earth setting from Sneak Attack Press, but could be used with any post-apocalyptic campaign.
