Savage Worlds: Super Powers Companion (Pinnacle Entertainment Group)This week will see the release of the Super Powers Companion book, for Savage Worlds, from Pinnacle Entertainment Group. Take your SWADE roleplaying into the world of comic book adventures with this new supplement. The 200 page hardcover will carry an MSRP of $39.99 or grab the PDF alone right now at DriveThruRPG for $19.99.

About the book:

Few mediums inspire today’s gamers like comic books, graphic novels, and the movies and television shows based on them. The Savage Worlds Super Powers Companion lets you recreate everything from classic Marvel and DC tales to modern takes like The Boys, Kick-Ass, or Invincible… all in the award-winning Savage Worlds rules system!

This 200-page hardcover book updates the original Super Powers Companion to be completely compatible with Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. Here’s what you’ll find inside:

  • A gorgeous new layout by fan-favorite Karl Keesler; a beautiful cover by Aaron J. Riley; all-new art by the phenomenal Bien Flores, Unique Soparie, Wayne Miller, and more!
  • New CHARACTER options, Edges, and Hindrances.
  • New and updated GEAR, like absorption shields, capes!, a host of weapons for your heroes and villains to bash each other with, and vehicles to get your super team where they need to go in style!
  • All new narrative HEADQUARTERS rules! Build a unique base for your super team, upgrade it, and deal with the adventurous complications that come with it!
  • New SETTING RULES emphasize the nature of super-powered combat, including new Power Stunts, using the terrain as a weapon, and suggested Setting Rules to mimic different styles including Four Color, Cosmic, Gritty, Fantasy, Horror, and even Ultra Violent takes on supers!
  • Every single POWER has been evaluated, updated, and streamlined. Power Types have been redefined, universal modifiers cleaned up and made simpler, and new powers like Deadeye added! All within the standard Savage Worlds point cost system!
  • The ROGUE’S GALLERY has been completely overhauled, both in story and powers, to better fit today’s comics. Every single one has new art and many connect to each other, creating a default setting for those who want it and easily ignored for those who don’t. From street-level threats to cosmic annihilators and rampaging kaiju, there’s a bit of badness here to challenge any super team!
  • ITEMS OF POWER! Over a dozen super powered items give the Game Master rewards for her super team or plot devices for their mad tyrants. Drop a time bomb to rewrite history. Rally beneath the tattered symbol. Beware the devastation seeds! And battle for cosmic supremacy with the crown of the new god!

  1. We do? I already have this book. Is this a second printing?

    • It’s the SWADE edition, which has been out in PDF since January but hadn’t received a print edition until now. That’s according to Pinnacle’s Shane Hemsley as of late October.

      • I own it in SWADE edition but figured it out. I got it through the Kickstarter. This must be the public release.

        • You got it! Unlike some companies out there, I know Pinnacle always looks to get their crowdfunded releases into the hands of all the backers long before anyone else gets their hands on them.
