Mythic: Ennam & Saduri for Savage Worlds
Mythic is a setting for the Savage Worlds RPG system based on the myths and legends of ancient Earth.
Mythic: Ennam & Saduri is an expansion book for the Mythic campaign setting for the Savage Worlds roleplaying game, which takes several cultures and mythologies from real world Earth and places them all together in a new and unique world. The Mythic setting book includes three cultures and mythologies: Pridith, based on the Celts; Illosia, based on the Greeks; and Niserri, based on the Egyptians. Mythic: Ennam & Saduri adds two new cultures and mythologies: Ennam, based on Mesopotamia; and Siduri, based on Vedic India.
This supplemental book includes new character creation information for creating characters from the new Saduri and Ennam cultures, as well as rules for summoning and binding the numerous demonic entities that plague both of these civilizations. Each culture is described in detail, including descriptions of some of the major deities from each culture's pantheon. Finally, Mythic: Ennam and Saduri contains a bestiary that includes stats and descriptions for 25 creatures pulled from Mesopotamian and Vedic Indian mythology.
A character sheet, one-sheet adventures, pantheon family trees, and other goodies, are all currently available as free downloads on the Chimera Press website: www.chimerapress.com

Risks and challenges
The updated version of the Mythic setting book is already 100% complete. The writing for the Mythic: Ennam & Saduri expansion, and the Poisoned Wedding adventure, is complete. All that's needed is to add the artwork and do final layout tweaks for both books to be fully complete. Writing for the second adventure is already well under way, but will take several additional months to complete.
The only foreseeable risk is a delay in the completion of the artwork. If the artwork is delayed, or a new artist has to be found part way through, all it'll mean is that the release of the books gets pushed back.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
