PWYW for this thing I wrote!

Well, we finished the final touches on VARGR last night, got it off to Eric Simon at Four-in-Hand Games, and it's up on DriveThruRPG! I've been writing about The King is Dead here for a couple of years, so it's a great feeling to finally share it in some professional capacity with the world at large.

VARGR is both a short adventure and a teaser for The King is Dead setting, offering a look at the secret societies of Malleus and their related mechanics, the sorcerous vampires of TKiD, and some of the setting rules. As I wrote for the DTRPG blurb:

In an 18th century that never was, revolution rocks the nation of Malleus! Secret societies of rebels strike to unseat the vampire aristocracy with pen and sword, inciting long-dormant dreams of freedom in their fellow humans while driving stakes through the hearts of their oppressors. Frontiersmen, highlanders, mad scientists, occultists, slaves, and more unite to overthrow the immortal regime!

In VARGR, the heroes join the hunt for a mad killer, only to find he holds the secrets to defeat the vampires. Can they save him from the assassins hunting him? Can they save him from himself? Can they save themselves from the wrath of the vampire overlords?

VARGR requires Savage Worlds and the Savage Worlds Horror Companion to play.

Watch for The King is Dead campaign setting in the summer of 2016!

It's pay what you want, so you can have it for free (but please consider throwing a dollar or two our way -- and if you buy it through my affiliate link, we get a kickback from that, too). Thanks!


  1. Congrats! Wish I could sit in on the session you're running at Chupacabracon, but I'm signed up for a Savage Rifts game in the same slot. (I'll be in your Friday DHAMPIR session, tho...)

    1. I look forward to seeing you there! Check out Robin's Sunday morning version of it if you have the time.
