The Heroes of Terra Player's Guide (Rough Cut Edition) is now available on DriveThruRPG!
Welcome to Terra, a parallel world where magic lives and the dinosaurs never died out. Humans never evolved on Terra--instead, the world is dominated by floral life and saurians. Humans exist on Terra, however, drawn from the legendary world of Earth.
Heroes of Terra is a pulp-fantasy setting in the vein of classic sword-and-sorcery literature, with a world that pays homage to classic video games of the early 1980s. Think of it as "Conan the Barbarian," but the main character is a mustachioed Italian plumber instead of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Influences on the setting include Super Mario Brothers, The Legend of Zelda, Elric of Melniboné, Conan the Barbarian, John Carter of Mars, the Lankhmar novels, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Donkey Kong Country, and more, all thrown into a blender on high speed.
Jump higher, grow huge, and break open chests filled with gold coins and flowers that give you magic powers. Summon up your power, gather your wisdom, and find your courage. Terra needs heroes!
This player's guide is intended to serve as an introduction to the world of Heroes of Terra, an exciting new campaign setting for Savage Worlds. The art and layout in this guide are considered to be in "rough cut" format, a preview stage before the game goes to Kickstarter in winter 2015/2016. The final version of the Player's Guide will be made available for free to all customers who purchased the rough cut after it is finished.
And keep an eye out for the full setting book when it goes to Kickstarter, Heroes of Terra: The Mushroom War!
