Buccaneer: Through Hell and High Water Released for Savage Worlds

Buccaneer

April 23, 2018

Fabled Environments has released their new book, Buccaneer: Through Hell and High Water, for the Savage Worlds system. It is filled with rules to bring the Golden Age of Piracy to your tabletop. Raid coastal settlements, engage in dangerous boarding actions, fight legendary sea creatures, all while trying to find the buried treasure.

Things differ from what you might remember in your history books. Sure, the seas over flow with iron men and wooden ships, but the Caribbean permeates a lurking darkness. The Golden Age of Piracy suffers a tarnish from a taint of a malevolent force lurking in the waters. What started out as a silent plea for help, turned into a deep cry for mercy.

This 300+ page book is a setting for the Savage Worlds system. It brings the Golden Age of Piracy to life. Contained within you can find some new rules for ship combat, swashbuckling chaos, ship customization, new archetypes, over twenty new edges and hindrances and an exciting world of Buccaneers, Vodou and Monsters to run your campaign.
