Savage Heroes – Fear Agent – Goon – Sixth Gun – Solomon Kane

by Monday 15 July 2019
In July 2019 we presented the Savage Heroes Bundle, featuring no less than four licensed Savage Worlds settings — and just about their complete product lines, too — from Pinnacle Entertainment. Based on three long-running comics and a Robert E. Howard pulp classic, these savage worlds span time and space.

Pinnacle has run many successful Kickstarters to fund new Savage Worlds settings, and over time the company has refined these crowdfunding efforts to a fine edge. Each campaign funds a well-conceived package of core setting book, pregen characters, adventure, play aids, and freebies. The space-opera comic Fear Agent™ by Rick Remender and Tony Moore spawned an RPG setting funded in a March 2017 Kickstarter that ran in parallel with another Kickstarter adapting The Goon,™ the zombie-robot-changeling noir comic by Eric Powell. Earlier, Pinnacle ran a May 2015 Kickstarter to fund its RPG adaptation of the Weird West comic The Sixth Gun® by Cullen Bunn & Brian Hurtt. Most venerable of these settings (and predating Kickstarter’s rise) is the 2007 The Savage World of Solomon Kane, based on Robert E. Howard’s wandering Puritan monster-hunter.

There were five reulebooks in our Corebook Collection (retail value $75):

  • Fear Agent™: A pulp space odyssey with horror, military action, old-fashioned ass-kicking, and revenge, not necessarily in that order.
  • The Goon™: Zombie-robot-changeling noir with Franky, Doc Alloy, Fishy Pete, Merle the Werewolf, and the rest of the Goon’s tough-as-leather crime syndicate.
  • The Sixth Gun®: Cutthroat Weird-West historical fantasy about six otherworldly pistols and the rogues, gadflies, and scoundrels who seek them.
  • The Savage World of Solomon Kane: Robert E. Howard’s Puritan wanderer has passed the torch to a new group of holy warriors who fight globe-spanning evil.
  • And as we often have with our many past Savage Worlds offers, we include the Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer’s Edition rulebook.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Expanded Collection with fifteen more titles worth an additional $81, including basically all the important supplements for all these games: Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to the charity chosen by Shane Hensley of Pinnacle Entertainment, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
