Savage Worlds Explorer Volume 1, Issue #05
Calling All Explorers!
Whether you’re a college student going to the movies, a brainwashed superninja, or off to explore known worlds for JumpCorp—savage settings need intrepid explorers!
Infinite Worlds of Adventure
Savage Worlds Explorer is a continuing series featuring Savage Tales from all our settings written by new authors and industry veterans. This installment features tales by Camdon Wright, Kyle Carty, John Goff, and Sean Tait Bircher, with two scenarios which only require the core rules!
Savage Worlds: Two Birds, One Stone by Camdon Wright
Someone gunned down Sarah and Hunter Williams in cold blood. Sarah was an aspiring sculptor but paid the bills with her job as a bank teller. Hunter was a painter who spent his
days building websites for other artists. It’s the cops’ job to figure out whodunit—and they might not have to look very far.
Deadlands the Weird West: The Cowboy Killer by Kyle Carty
There’s a saying about desert-dwelling life: It’ll either stick you, prick you, or kick you. The ”cowboy killer” became infamous as the absolute last thing a rider wanted to fall onto in the event that his horse threw him from the saddle.
Savage Worlds: A Familiar Problem by John Goff
A modern investigative horror scenario intended for Novice characters, in “A Familiar Problem” the investigators are retained by Alice and George Dotson to find their 26-year-old son. Lonny’s been missing for more than two days now, and it’s only a matter of time before the court finds out he’s jumped bail. If the investigators can’t find that little rat, the Dotsons will lose their home!
Rippers Resurrected: Foxed! by Sean Tait Bircher
Passing through Tokyo, the Rippers stop to assist the Tokyo Lodge and unwittingly become drawn into a horrifying scheme of revenge. A kitsune—a fox demon— stalks the Tokyo Rippers for an affront from years ago.
The Savage Worlds Explorer requires a copy of Savage Worlds core rules and may require the core books for the setting, such as Deadlands Player’s Guide and Deadlands Marshal’s Handbook. Add dice, a deck of cards, and explorers, and let the fun begin!
