LAS VEGAS, NV – July 17, 2013 – The Dragon Kings design team announced today a plan to release an official PDF rules supplement for Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s Savage Worlds game system.
“Savage Worlds is a terrific game system,” says lead Dragon Kings creator Timothy Brown. “It’s great for the sort of fast, heroic combat and non-stop action I envision for Khitus (the Dragon Kings world). Shane Hensley and everyone at Pinnacle are great to work with, too. It’s an excellent relationship.”
“I’ve been a fan of Tim Brown and Dark Sun since my earliest days as a freelancer,” adds Shane Hensley, President of Pinnacle Entertainment and designer of the Savage Worlds game system. “Pinnacle is THRILLED to be part of his next creation, and I’m personally looking forward to doing a little work on it as well.”
The Dragon Kings game book will be rules agnostic. Savage Worlds is the first announced free PDF rules supplement that will be available upon the game’s release, giving all that game system’s rules and stats to play Dragon Kings as a Savage Worlds game. Other rules systems will be announced soon.
Savage Worlds is an award-winning, universal, generic role-playing game and miniatures wargame, written by Shane Lacy Hensley, and published by Pinnacle Entertainment Group. The game emphasizes speed of play and reduced preparation. Other Savage Settings include Evernight, 50 Fathoms, Necessary Evil, Rippers, and Low Life, as well as Deadlands: Reloaded, Tour of Darkness, Necropolis, and Weird War II.
Dragon Kings has already announced the participation of artists Gerald Brom and Thomas Baxa, as well as cartographer Alyssa Faden for its game book. Former Queensrÿche guitarist Mike Stone and computer industry producer Frank Klepacki are contributing to the game world’s music, a key component of the game universe’s presentation.
About Dragon Kings
Dragon Kings is Timothy Brown’s ‘spiritual successor’ to his award-winning Dark Sun role-playing universe, co-designed with author Troy Denning and artist Gerald Brom for the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game. Dragon Kings is a new fantasy game world conceived and presented in fiction, art, and music simultaneously. The project will be crowd sourced and eventually expand beyond role-playing and music into comics, video, and computer games. The product launch envisions a hardbound game book, an art-intensive album-sized world gazetteer and lyrics booklet, and a full-length progressive rock CD.
