We’ve got loads of exciting news coming at you this week from a few of our amazing licensees!
First up, new licensee on the block, BPB Games, is happy to announce their first major product as an official licensee for Savage Worlds. Get ready for Savage Tokusatsu! Built from the ground up and exclusively for Savage Worlds, Savage Tokusatsu combines the fast, furious, and fun engine of Savage Worlds with action-packed stories about transforming heroes, kaiju, and group-controlled mecha.
The Kickstarter for Savage Tokusatsu will launch in March with a Test Drive and actual plays using the new rules presented in the full book to give backers a taste of what’s in store. Follow BPB Games on Facebook and Tumblr for regular updates about Savage Tokusatsu and their other fine products!
Next, Demonskunk Studios (we love the name, btw) will be launching a Kickstarter in April for their brand-new setting, Aether Adrift:
In the far future Human colonists have crash landed on a strange alien planet made of floating landmasses. They’re too far from home to call for help, their ship is stuck in orbit, and the escape pods containing colonists and supplies are scattered across the world. They’ve formed a coalition with the Mikwa, a creative and peaceful native people, to help them fight back against the expansionist military empire, the Fulgori.
Join their coalition, the Voyagers, and explore the depths of highly advanced alien ruins to extract the technology within. Your efforts are the only hope for Humanity to repair their ship, and keep the fulgori from furthering their military might.
Aether Adrift will feature four playable races (Human, Robot, Mikwa, and Fulgori), a bestiary full of alien creatures, new rules for quick terrain generation and gear modification, as well as new Edges, Hindrances, gear for each of the three cultures, and the advanced tech from within the ruins.
Follow Demonskunk Studios at their blog and on Twitter and Facebook.
Finally, Legendary Games has released Beneath the Festered Sun, an exciting new adventure for Novice-level characters set in a fantastic Egyptian-style kingdom long since fallen into decay and corruption:
When a heretical priestess met execution at the hands of conspirators, her immortal consort vowed to carry out her dying curse. Now, after centuries of plotting and waiting, the sky and stars have aligned perfectly to finally unleash her long-simmering revenge. Amidst the excitement over this celestial conjunction, a lone voice proclaiming the coming danger is mysteriously silenced and the wrath of the burning sun smites the population with a scorching curse. The authorities are overwhelmed, but can your heroes forestall this agonizing vengeance set in motion ages ago? To save the soul of a city, they must confront its past and its present to save its future, destroying the accursed avatars of a long-dead enemy—all before the twilight of the Festered Sun.
Beneath the Festered Sun features a blend of dungeons to explore, mysteries to unravel, and interludes of intrigue and battle alike in and around the necropolis of Owot-ti. Unleash this awesome 36-page-adventure on your heroes and Make Your Game Legendary!
