Old grognards out there might recognize the name Battlelords. It's been around for some time now... quite some time. And now, it's getting an official book in the Savage Worlds game system. The project is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Battlelords is a game set in a dangerous future. An Alliance of Humans and aliens is fighting for survival. The techno-organic hordes of the Arachnids have destroyed worlds and decimated populations as they advance into Alliance territory. Against the backdrop of war, players can take the fight to the 'Nids. Play as a corporate mercenary, soldiers in the Galactic Armed Forces, or as bounty hunters. Feel like something a little more underhanded? Corporate spies and pirates make money the old fashion way... by stealing it.
Curious about what it is like to play over-equipped, under-trained, corporate mercs whose employer views them as expendable resources in a galaxy being invaded by a horde of techno-organic monstrosities? Check out our free "Savage Battlelords" quick start rules, which is also filled with awesome artwork!
The campaign's up and over its funding goal with 31 days left to go.
