This goes out to anyone attending RTX. I'm planning on running a Savage Worlds campaign during the Con made up of a series of short encounters in a universe loosely inspired by the Monster Hunter International book series. I'll be providing pre-made characters (though I'd be happy to take character input beforehand) and all the necessary accessories. Make sure to comment below if you're attending and interested.
What is Savage Worlds? Savage Worlds is a lightweight RPG system with focus on flexibility, ease of play, and rollplaying. Unlike D&D it doesn't try to produce rules for every occasion, instead leaving things open to interpretation by the GM and encouraging optional or house rules. It also encompasses settings ranging from classic Sword and Sorcery to SciFi. This campaign will be set in a modern world with some magical elements.
I've never played Savage Worlds before. How can I pick it up? I will be playing with a minimal rule set and providing cheat sheets at the convention. It won't be hard to pick it up. I'll also provide a PDF of the most recent rules to anyone interested beforehand.
When will the games take place? Throughout RTX, both during the convention and after hours. I've designed the campaign so there won't be any issues with people moving in and out of the game. I'll communicate specific times through a discord group anyone interested will be invited to.
What is the focus of the campaign? I don't want to give away too much at this time. I will say that mechanically you will be playing a small rag-tag group moving through a series of short events. These events may involve combat, negotiation, problem solving, or any number of creative solutions. How you complete them will affect the climax of the campaign. Think Mass Effect crossed with FTL.
I'm interested, but don't really want to play. Can I still participate? Spectators are welcome, and I'm always open to ideas. Feel free to comment below and I'll add you to the discord as one, or as an assistant game designer if you'd like to contribute.
Is this an open invite? Yes! Feel free to share with anyone in the community who will be attending RTX.
