This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Kickstarter for SWADE setting: Freedom Squadron, ending today.
« on: October 22, 2021, 12:55:15 PM »
If you have fond memories of the cartoons from the 80s and 90s and had a fascination with lasers, vehicles, toys, and action figures then do I have a game for you!

Freedom Squadron is played using the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (SWADE) rule set. It involves fast-paced action, plots to take over the world, badass vehicle fights, and codenames!

Here's the official brief:

"The military action-adventure setting based on the VENOM Assault board game from SpyGlass Games returns with a revised core rulebook and an all-new collection of allies, Edges, enemies, Frameworks, and vehicles!

Inspired by superhero-adjacent action teams like the Blackhawks, G.I. Joe, and SHIELD, Freedom Squadron pits the eponymous special mission force against VENOM, a foe with plans far more insidious than mere world conquest. Hyper-competent heroes tussle with masked menaces for the fate of humankind!

Freedom Squadron uses the award-winning Savage Worlds system from Pinnacle Entertainment Group and the role Frameworks pioneered by Evil Beagle’s own Sean Patrick Fannon in the original release of Rifts® for Savage Worlds. The new Field Manual by Sean Tait Bircher and Robin English-Bircher (Savage Rifts®: American Apocalypse, Dawn of the Daikaiju, Rippers Resurrected: Expedition Amazon) updates the existing Frameworks and other rules for the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. It is a must-buy for fans of the setting!

The Friends/Foes Manual provides game stats for all of the VENOM Assault carded characters, new Edges, new Frameworks, and new insights into Freedom Squadron and VENOM (some by Blood & Justice's own Bill "teh ebil bunneh" Keyes). It’s invaluable to players and Game Masters alike!

A range of pledge tiers allow you to pledge a little now and get more add-ons later or pay more to add a character to the ongoing war between Freedom Squadron and VENOM. Fulfillment will be handled by DriveThruRPG, allowing us to ship anywhere in the world!

For more information, check out the FAQ and Updates on the Kickstarter—and keep an eye out for even more news as we reveal the secrets of the upcoming stretch goals! It all ends on Friday, October 22nd at 7:00 PM CDT! Follow the link and back it."

Definitely not giving my money to Evil Beagle. Hard pass.
