Play / Learn Savage Worlds

If you're new to the world of role-playing games, or Savage Worlds in particular, I'd love to show you how its done! Come to learn, come to play.  I have dice and pencils and everything a new player needs; all you need to bring is yourself and your imagination.

I (Brian) will be hosting this session, as James has a work obligation that falls on that evening. 

This month players will have the opportunity to play actual Legendary characters (100 xp). In the world of Tian Xia, a fantastic version of medieval China, none are more esteemed than the Wulin, heroes (and sometimes villains) of martial arts who have mastered the Way -- an advanced art that taps into their inner Chi to allow them to seemingly defy the laws of physics. When a prominent Wulin elder is assassinated and his holy weapon stolen, the characters are called upon by the local police captain to seek out his murderer, bring them to justice, and recover the relic. 

This will be a superheroic adventure with a high body count. Six player limit. 

Take a look at the pregens!

Master Wu

Cloud Shu-Feng

Iron Eye Li

Broken Cup

Lethal Dragon Xiang

Fragrant Jasmine

Bright Snow

Mountain Ox Bao

...and a handy Reference Guide with setting rules and a guide to the custom character sheets.


A guest GM, Aaron, will be running a Deadlands scenario. Yay Aaron!

NOTE: This event will be held at Guardian Games.  We will be at Guardian Games for the foreseeable future.

    Aaron ran an awesome Deadlands Scenario. I was really sweating at the end but the party did prevail and the "Mean one" was defeated! Thanks Aaron!

    Thanks to everyone who came by tonight! And thanks especially to Jena, Jay, Sarah, and Jim for helping me playtest Legendary characters with high-flying Wuxia Kung-Fu. The dice were against you but you managed to hold your own against a ton of enemies. If I run another Wuxia scenario I'll take some of the things I learned tonight and make it faster, simpler, and better. Thanks again everyone and I hope you all have a great holiday season and happy New Year. See you in January!

    I see that Cameron, Sarah and Jena are back for more savage goodness! Oh, Jim is here, too! Good to see folks returning from previous games.

      The good folks of Hooverville sure love Christmas a lot. But Gerald Goodman, who lived just north of Hooverville, did not. Come find out what happens in this Deadlands tale of Christmas Horror!

    View the board discussion for the short Space campaign (firefly universe using High Space rules). Starting in January.

    If we need a backup GM, I could prepare a one-shot of some sort.

    2 · November 22, 2013

    • Aaron S.

      Yeah, sure. I'll bring a Deadlands one shot in case we have enough players for two games.

      2 · November 22, 2013

    • Brian R.

      Aaron, I'm all for it! Having two tables, even if one of them is just a "backup" table, helps absorb some of the unpredictability of attendance.

      November 22, 2013

  • Kevin S.

    I am all for 6pm start time.

    November 22, 2013

  • James S.

    I think for 2014, we may start earlier at 6pm. Since we have a harder stop at Guardian, if we start earlier, that may mitigate some time issues. Comments?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
