SWADE Update Available & PledgeManager Reminder

We recently heard that there were some issues with the bookmarks in the Powers section of Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. This has now been fixed, along with a few other things our foreign translation partners and Rifts® for Savage Worlds team noticed as they’re getting that MASSIVE PROJECT ready (PledgeManager for that coming soon!)

You can find the clarifications in the FREE Savage Worlds Adventure Edition Updates PDF so you can just mark or print out the few pages affected, or re-download the entire file (especially if you use the bookmarks feature in the PDF*).

And don’t forget that the SWADE Pledge Manager closes July 16, so make sure you have completed your orders before then!

* New to bookmarks in Adobe Reader? Open your PDF in an e-reader like Adobe Acrobat. Toggle the toolbar open on the left, and select the bookmark icon. A new panel opens so you can easily jump to chapters like Gear, Powers, and Game Mastering. You can also expand or contract the chapters so you can quickly find the Rules section on Opposed Rolls.

Licensee Spotlight: Sagas & Six Guns – Final Hours!

It’s time to either unholster that smoke wagon or unpack that warhammer because the Kickstarter for Sagas & Six Guns from Gallant Knight Games is riding into its final hours!

Sagas & Six-Guns is a Savage Worlds Adventure Edition setting and rulebook about a mythical and uninhabited frontier settled by Scandinavian cultures. A mash-up of the Old West and the Old Norse, Sagas & Six-Guns is what happens when Beowulf takes on Grendel with a pair of six-shooters and his trusty axe.

Sagas & Six-Guns aims to give you all the tools you need to tell fantastic stories of shootists wielding pistols while shouting oaths to the Aesir in Valhalla. Your heroes will battle everything from cattle rustlers and train robbers, to trolls, and maybe even a dragon. You can be anything from a mundane pistolero or gunmaiden, to a runecasting seer, or a Valkyrie cut off from Asgard!

Pledge your support for Sagas & Six-Guns today, and be sure to grab the free JumpStart from DriveThruRPG if you want to give it a try!

Licensee Spotlight: The After: Post-Apocalyptic Action for SWADE

The After, from Fainting Goat Games and Jade Monkey Studios, is a setting of savage frontier action (think The Revenant or Jeremiah Johnson) in a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic world (think Annihilation or The Quiet Place).

Set in the northwestern reaches of the broken North American continent, you play survivors of the shattered human race trying to rebuild their world after nearly a century of alien predation and war. This utterly destructive invasion of Earth, followed by a terrifying war between rival alien species far more advanced than mankind, has left the planet a broken version of its former self. Major cities and areas of industrial and military strength have been completely obliterated. Only in the world’s most sparsely populated areas have people survived: areas that were ignored or undervalued by the rampaging alien forces.

The After will be a full-color, 150+ page book for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition with detailed, provocative artwork by Jon Gibbons. The book will feature new playable races, new Arcane Backgrounds, new Edges and Hindrances, additional rules to evoke the unique feeling of the setting – including scavenging, item decay and deterioration, a Bestiary of foes, and an extensive Gazetteer of the Wind River region of Modern Wyoming, where the setting takes place.

In addition, The After has its own sort of unearthly items – Remnants –  left behind by the alien races who used Earth as a battleground. These unique and powerful items are sought out by survivors to give both themselves and their communities a fighting chance to make a better life.

Visit the Kickstarter page to check out the growing list of Stretch Goals and to pledge your support for The After. And be sure to download the FREE Quick Start Guide available from DriveThruRPG.

It’s time to reclaim the Earth!

THE IRREGULARS take on Savage Rifts®!

Follow and Subscribe to Hippo TV on Twitch where you’ll find THE IRREGULARS stream, and be sure to follow the group on Twitter, read about their adventures on Obsidian Portal, and discuss their adventures on Roll20.
