Licensee Spotlight: Counterblast Jumpstart for Savage Worlds

Published On: March 7, 2023Categories: Licensee, New Release, News

Inspired by classic Saturday morning serials and monster movies of the 1950s, Counterblast, from licensee Bombshell Miniatures, launches you and your heroes into out of this world adventure in the Outer Reaches! 🚀

While the Kickstarter supporting the full RPG begins Monday, March 27th (sign up here to get notified when it launches), you can get a taste of this larger-than-life cinematic setting with a FREE 18-page Jumpstart guide available now through DriveThruRPG.

This Jumpstart guide for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition introduces players and GMs to the Counterblast setting and includes a one-shot adventure: Is Anybody Home?

“The crew is dispatched by the Galactic Recovery Agency to the remote mining facility Outpost Alpha 2, located on the planet Lanos in the Anophi system of the Outer Reaches. The Galactic Defense Force (GDF) is spread thin in this area, so they are offering compensation for civilian assistance. The last received communication from the miners was inconspicuous; nothing unusual was reported. No distress signal was received from the facility, but subsequent communications have gone unanswered.”

Pertinent gear, creatures, and vehicles unique to the setting are all included. In addition, a handful of pregenerated characters of species common to Counterblast are also featured.

Grab a bubble helmet, check the setting on that trusty ray gun, and blast off for the Outer Reaches in your ultonium-powered rocket ship. Battle interstellar invaders as a soldier of the valiant Galactic Defense Force. Explore the hidden secrets of a lost alien civilization on far flung planets, recover salvage and hunt criminals for bounty as a Galactic Recovery Agent, or just try to keep flying by getting a valuable cargo to the infamous Stellar Exchange.

All this and much more awaits players in the Counterblast setting for Savage Worlds, where play is “fast, furious, and fun!”
