A Whole Lotta’ Kickstartin’ Goin’ On!
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.
