FEAR AGENT is coming to Savage Worlds RPG!

I don't usually post too many Kickstarters on the blog any more, but this one is just too good not to. To say that I've been a "big fan" of Rick Remender's retro space pulp comic, Fear Agent comic book would be a cosmic understatement. It's been (along with Remender's other work) a huge influence on my own game design the past few years.

If you've never read it, go find the trades because it's awesome. At first glance it might come off as a "retro" nostalgia space opera, but it's quite the layered drama, with a sort of hard-boiled, noir feel to it.

Anyway, Pinnacle Entertainment, the publishers of Savage Worlds RPG have acquired it as a license and are publishing a complete game along with bennies, plastic minis, and a handful of other awesome goodies.

Once a year I let myself splurge on a big Kickstarter and THIS is the one!

Back the complete game and you'll get:

  • Savage stats for the main cast of characters: Heath Hudson, Mara, Charlotte
  • Rules for spaceships, warp travel, alien worlds, time travel, alternate dimensions, etc. 
  • A gazetteer of the planets Heath Huston visited during his adventures 
  • Additional alien races and creatures 
  • A Plot Point Campaign that builds on the events of the comics, taking the heroes to the ends of the Commonwealth and beyond 
  • A series of flashback scenarios to let your players fight in the Anubis Conflict itself 
  • An adventure generator to create a terror-filled universe of encounters

Not to mention, poker chip-style bennies, a full complement of polyhedrals, plus two stretch goals: a form-fillable character sheet and pre-generated archetypes (character templates).

It's already cleared it's goal so it's worth a look. Check it out on Kickstarter!

P.S. If going full-in is too rich for your blood, you can always go for a PDF only version or the cool minis without getting soaked.

For me though, this is an easy one. ;-)
