On May 16th 2017 partners Fabled Environments and Yellow Piece Games launched a Kickstarter for a new Savage Worlds setting book titled Buccaneer: Through Hell and High Water. The campaign runs on Kickstarter for 35 days with a funding goal of $7000.
The campaign is now 95% funded and there are great stretch goals to expand your campaign just waiting to be released. There are also some really nice add ons that include a vintage leather journal, a brass telescope, and rustic metal doubloons for use as Bennies.
Buccaneer:THHW brings the golden age of piracy to life. This book compliments the wonderful cinematic feel of Savage Worlds by offering a gritty new ruleset for ship combat, a great new encounter mechanic to capture swashbuckling chaos, and a novel approach to ship customization. Players can take advantage of new Archetypes, Edges/Hindrances, and a new Arcane Background to create an exciting character ready to sail the seven seas! New creatures, a harsh environment, and tough NPCs offer the players wonderful adversaries to overcome.
