Our Kickstarter campaign for The Blackwood Errantry Codex goes live on Tuesday, May 2nd, at 11:00am CDT!

The Blackwood is a fantasy setting inspired by folklore and high-flying martial arts action. It's Grimm's Tales meets Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It's The Witcher series meets Kung Fu Hustle. It's Iron Monkey meets Brotherhood of the Wolf. You are errants, a class of wandering adventurers, who search a landscape of deadly beauty for a way to save the settled folk of the Elder Kingdom from ruin.

The Blackwood Errantry Codex is an officially-licensed campaign setting for the award-winning Savage Worlds RPG from Pinnacle Entertainment Group. We're producing a complete guide to gameplay in the Blackwood, including a full-length Plot Point Campaign, The Way of the Elder King.

The finished book will include:
- 18 new Edges and 9 new Hindrances
- 5 new Races and 5 new Arcane Backgrounds
- 4 new Setting Rules full of folkloric whimsy and wuxia action
- 40+ new creatures and foes
- A Plot Point Campaign, The Way of the Elder King, complete with Savage Tales

In the Blackwood, you won't run into Paul Bunyan, Hansel and Gretel, or Wong Fei-Hung, but you'll encounter characters very much like them. This is not your typical fantasy world of dwarves and halflings. Elves aren't crafting mighty rings of power, they're turning your friend inside out and cooking you into a stew. You'll journey through a forest full of slippery magic, where the terrain changes with the winds, and the right song might guide you better than the finest compass.

In keeping with the Savage Worlds design philosophy, we've created a few Setting Rules and character options to invoke the spirit of both folklore and wuxia. In the Blackwood, you'll be able to master a variety of fighting schools and use almost any object as a weapon. Spend all your time around pots and pans? In your hands, they're as deadly as any cudgel. We've also expanded the Dramatic Task rules to simulate navigating the changing paths and slippery magic of a forest right out of Grimm's Tales. And this is just a taste of what's in store!
