Licensee Spotlight: Vermilium: Blood Hunt for Savage Worlds

Published On: June 18, 2024Categories: Crowdfunding, Licensee, News

Today, licensee White Witch Games launches its second Kickstarter campaign, this time to raise funds for the first in a planned series of adventure modules for their acclaimed Savage Worlds setting, Vermilium.

Vermilium: Blood Hunt is a survival horror tale in which the antiheroes enter a competition to hunt a mysterious monster, supposedly responsible for a spate of recent killings, only to become the hunted themselves.

After being released as a one-page adventure through the Savage Worlds Adventurer’s Guild back in 2020, and winning the SWAG Award for Best Free Product of that year, it has been greatly expanded to now include:

  • A 14-page adventure lasting one to three sessions
  • New scenes and NPCs for the players to interact with
  • New monsters, artifacts, and ingredients to find using Vermilium’s unique Hunting & Gathering system
  • New rules for creating animated taxidermy familiars, animal companions, and mounts to put harvested monster parts to good use
  • New battle maps for tactical combat
  • Six Savage Tales set in and around the fully-fleshed out frontier town of Rat Factory

Successfully Kickstarted in under seven hours back in 2022, Vermilium is a strange concoction of dark fantasy, weird western, and post-post-apocalyptic genres. It is set in a new world inspired by the pre-colonial Americas, the Old West, and the Gilded Age. In Vermilium, you play as antiheroes: lovable rogues, bowslinger witches, industrial tomb robbers, bounty hunter knights, werewolves, vampires, and soldiers of fortune, all trying to survive in an unexplored, unforgiving frontier that has yet to be charted, tamed, or even understood.
