Here is a summary of the pledge levels to make choosing your pledge level a bit easier.  If you'd like to grab a copy of Olympus Inc in .PDF or print or even the entire Fabled Environments catalog, check out the "Add-Ons" below! To learn even more about the book, keep scrolling! 

To add onto your pledge to grab these items, simply use the "Manage your pledge " button once you've pledged or add the amount of the "Add-On" to your initial pledge. :-)

Welcome to the Kickstarter for The Pelion Report. Thanks for checking us out! This is the Kickstarter for the second setting book for Olympus Inc. Just to be clear you need both the original Olympus Inc book(Need a copy? Look above for "Add-Ons")  and the Savage Worlds core rulebook to play. For a test drive of the Savage Worlds rules, click here 

So what is the world of Olympus Inc like? I’m glad you asked! Unlike most settings that have tackled the concept of demigods in the modern world, we are a bit different. Olympus, Inc answers the question of what would happen if the Olympians were kicked out of the heavens by Gaia and the Titans ruled instead. 

After she ejected them from the heavens, Gaia was also kind enough to use the Lethe River to cause all humans to forget that the Olympians existed. This nearly killed the Olympians, who began to fade away. However, the Olympians realized that they could draw from our obsession with the almighty dollar and gain power. Therefore, the Olympians traded their stone temples for towers of glass and steel. They formed the world's largest corporations. Now the Titans and Olympians fight a battle for control of the Heavens and Earth with each wielding incredible power. In the midst of all of this are normal humans who are asleep to everything that is around them.

Gaia has put a few rules in place to ensure that the Titans and Olympians don't tear each other apart as well as the rest of the inhabitants on Earth. This safeguard is known as the Nemesis Effect. The Nemesis Effect prohibits the use of visible supernatural abilities in front of sleepers (normal mortals). It also prohibits mythical creatures from appearing in front of a sleeper in their true form. If anyone breaks the rules, the Goddess Nemesis punishes them. It can be anything from being wracked with intense pain to death. It really depends on the severity of the infraction. 

Therefore, the Titans and Olympians fight a secret proxy war in a world identical to our own. However, most humans don't know that the gods exist and they certainly don't know that monsters and demigods with superhuman abilities roam the earth.

The Pelion Report is slated to be roughly 120 pages and adds to the already rich Olympus Inc setting by presenting five new Paragon bloodlines (Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Hephaestus and Hera) and two new Demihuman bloodlines (Cyclospawn and Centaur). Like the Minospawn presented in our first book, Cyclospawn are human size versions of their mythical cousins. In the case of Cyclospawn, each member of this bloodline is a human size Cyclops. 

Each of the new bloodlines has its own set of powers. In the case of the Paragon bloodlines, the book presents new corporations and subsidiaries that reflect the parent Olympian's spheres of influence. Not to be forgotten, The Pelion Report also presents new powers for existing bloodlines as well.  On the Titan side, we do present new corporations that GMs can utilize to make life more interesting for their players.

Along with new bloodlines and powers, the book contains a plethora of new edges and hindrances as well as new NPCs, IMBs Slosi and more! In addition to new equipment and weapons, The Pelion Report has rules for working with Orichalcum. Skilled PCs can infuse Orichalcum with properties that allow them to craft better weapons, equipment, ammunition and more!

As far as artwork is concerned, we plan to use a combination of top-notch color and B&W artwork. To get a taste for the feel and some of the crunch and the artwork in The Pelion Report, check out the sneak peek available through DrivethruRPG.com. Click here to take a look! 

In our stretch goals, you may notice some minor Greek deities listed. Minor deities do not have Paragon bloodlines. Instead, they have powers that Protean bloodlines can draw from. We wanted to do something to make the Protean bloodline more appealing to players and this is one way that we have envisioned to do this. Minor deities have a much shorter list of associated bloodline powers than their Paragon counterparts, but these powers are still quite interesting and effective. In addition, minor deities don't have their own corporate conglomerates. Instead, many spearhead subsidiaries under the control of one of the major Greek deities.

Risks and challenges

Things can always happen and projects can get delayed. However, we have most of the writing completed on the project and we have also playtested most of the material. We have some incredible artists on board and one of the best graphic designers in the industry on our team doing our layout.

Fabled Environments has delivered three previous kickstarters and we are confident that we can make this the fourth. We pledge to be fully transparent throughout this process!
