Set four years after the end of the Adran-Kez War, as recounted in The Autumn Republic (2015), Brian McClellan’s Powder Mage Roleplaying Game outlines a world in the upheaval of political, social, and technological revolution. It makes use of the Savage Worlds game system to allow for a versatile and easy-to-learn ruleset, fast character creation, and the ability to set out on an adventure within minutes.

Players can throw themselves into conflicts throughout the Nine Nations, from the power struggles within the budding republic of Adro to the unstable intrigue of the migrating courts of the baron-kings of Unice. To do so, they can take on any number of roles: a humble Knacked trying to create a family fortune, a Privileged sorcerer out to change the world, or even a Powder Mage, bent on revenge for past slights.

The Powder Mage Roleplaying Game also includes previously unpublished information about the countries, people, and history of the Powder Mage Universe.

Order your PDF copy of Brian McClellan’s Powder Mage Roleplaying Game (distributed by Gallant Knight Games) via DriveThruRPG today!

  • The Seas of Nehwon: Overviews of the Inner Sea, Outer Sea, Frozen Sea, Sea of Stars, Sea of the East, and Lankhmar’s docks and harbors.

Licensee Spotlight: Art of War for Savage Worlds

Tue, 04/17/2018 - 15:59

Savage Worlds licensee Amora Game recently launched a Kickstarter for their brand new Savage setting called Art of War.

Art of War is an Eastern fantasy setting inspired by the Three Kingdoms of China and the Sengoku Period of Japan.

It is the start of a new dynasty for the three Providences of the San Empire under a new Emperor. The three Great Clans bicker among themselves as the dust settles after an Oni invasion. The land needs heroes to protect the people from hungry ghost, renegade bandits, encroaching Nagas, flesh-eating Oni, tyrannical feudal lords, and inter-clan territory skirmishes. Will you join the call and become a Legend?

Influenced by anime, Art of War includes Tropes that act as frameworks to use as inspiration for the creation of heroes. Tropes determine access to Chi Techniques, a point system similar to Powers in Savage Worlds. This allows characters to have one or two over the top specializations like Shadow Clone where you can momentarily create a double of the character, or Scorpion Sting that acts as though you have struck an opponent’s pressure points. The book also includes new Edges and Hindrances adapted to add some comedic relief, like Nosebleed, as well as a couple new Skills.

Focus your Chi and visit the Art of War Kickstarter page today for more info, a link to a PDF preview, and to pledge your support!
