Just in time for
Halloween Hollerween, next Tuesday, October 12th, Holler, our all-new official setting for Savage Worlds, comes to Kickstarter!
Holler is a mixture of Appalachian Pulp Gothic, dark fantasy, and folk horror, with a focus on the strangeness, mystery, and eccentricity of the people and the mysterious world in which they dwell.
The heroes in this setting are everyday Appalachians—miners, millhands, mothers—with some iconic and epic twists. Moonshiners, Granny Women, Gougers, and No Accounts all have roles to play in a world where stories become tales.
Inspired by the sardonic humor of Flannery O’Connor’s short fiction, the haunted landscapes of Cormac McCarthy’s early Appalachian novels, the TV series Justified, Manley Wade Wellman’s John the Balladeer stories, and a host of other regional influences, Holler introduces players to a demon-tainted world of labor and cultural conflicts and environmental destruction.
Find out more about this wild new setting next week, but until then, keep an eye out for demons, devil dogs, diggers, scrummies, and tommyknockers.
The world of Holler is calling…
