Authors John Dunn, Jason Marker and Ross Watson have teamed up to work on the Accursed RPG. This is a Savage Worlds game in which darkness has won and the only ones left to fight back are monsters.
The Witches have ruled the land but their grand union has split. Now former shock troops, the Accursed with Witchmarks burned into their flesh and souls, are unable to return to their former lives but able to battle against the Witches.
This Kickstarter is going well. At the time of writing it has nearly 140 backers, over $6,500 in the pot and a request total of $10,000. There’s 28 days left on the clock.
The smallest pledge option is $10. That gets you access to the Accursed Player’s Guide for Savage Worlds in PDF form. If you think you might GM the game then step up to the $20 mark for the PDF copy of Accursed for Savage Worlds.
If they hit $10,000 then Sean Patrick Fannon of Evil Beagle, creator of Shaintar, creates an ebook adventure. I wonder if there’s a mistake on the price there as $10,000 isn’t a stretch goal; it’s the goal. Equally, a separate line suggests $10,000 also unlocks Rich Baker, of Primeval Thule, who’ll write another ebook adventure. Perhaps these aren’t mistakes. Perhaps this is a way to get names to associate with the project – but only if it’s a success. In fact, the remaining three stretches are described as funded +$2,000 and so on, so there’s reason to believe Accursed really is using a form of immediately unlocked on funding goal.
At $12,000 the amount of colour art goes up. At $13,000 Andy Chambers adds some introductory fiction for the book and at $15,000 Mel Odom writes a novella that takes place in the world.
The three authors say they’ve got stretch goals planned up to $100,000 should the campaign do well enough.
