The Savage World of Flash Gordon™ on Saving Throw

Tue, 01/16/2018 - 15:59

Last week, brand manager and writer, Scott Woodard, appeared on Saving Throw’s Twitch channel to run a one-shot of The Savage World of Flash Gordon™ Roleplaying Game for Savage Worlds. If you missed out, the archived show is now available on YouTube, and here’s Scott’s brief behind-the-scenes story of that event:

On Tuesday, January 9th, I was invited to the Saving Throw studio in Los Angeles to slip behind the GM screen and run an original one-shot of The Savage World of Flash Gordon™ live on their Twitch channel.

There were a lot of firsts that night: it was my first time on Saving Throw, three of the players had never tried Savage Worlds before, and all of us were gaming on a brand new Streamer game table from Carolina Game Tables! Saving Throw producer Dom Zook made me feel very welcome and my players were all friendly, enthusiastic, and great fun. I opted to run a short adventure titled The Deadly Dust, inspired by elements from a classic Flash Gordon™ film serial.

The adventure party consisted of Ryla the hawkwoman (Jen Kretchmer), Yithanir the lizard man (Dylan Riley Snyder), Pranasha the shark woman (Allisyn Ashley Arm), and “Jaq” the giant (Jordan Caves-Callarman). During the session, the heroes alerted a small village to an imperial threat, encountered a foul-smelling cave hobo, battled a giant, two-headed Tsak, and infiltrated one of Ming’s secret weapons labs!

If you want to check out a few of the Flash Gordon™ setting rules, see how some of the new core rule tweaks work, and laugh along with the cast, watch the entire archived show now on Saving Throw’s YouTube channel.

We also want to take a moment to thank all those awesome streamers out there who really embraced Savage Worlds on their Twitch channels in 2017 including the regular Friday night forays into the Weird West with the WildCards gang on Saving Throw, and the Happy Jack’s RPG Podcast group who have been playing Rifts® for Savage Worlds as well as Pirates of the Spanish Main.

So what do we have planned for 2018? Well, the Savage Worlds machine is currently chugging away behind the scenes (that means all of us banging on our keyboards) in hopes of bringing you the next version of Savage Worlds (codenamed “Savage Worlds Black”), followed by updated versions of both the Fantasy and Horror Companions, as well as updates and re-releases of the Deadlands Player’s Guide and Marshal’s Handbook.
