About this project
Bring the pulp scifi of Remender, Moore, and Opeña's Fear Agent™ to your Savage Worlds game!
The Fear Agent™ roleplaying game is already written, approved, and in final edits. Your support for this Kickstarter helps us make all the extra goodies like the kick-ass Miniatures, Bennies, Game Master's screen, new adventures, and more!
Read on and we'll tell you all about the game we've made from this amazing series!

Based on the amazing comic series by Rick Remender, Tony Moore, and Jerome Opeña, the Fear Agent™ Roleplaying Game is a pulp scifi setting for Savage Worlds with more twists than an episode of the Twilight Zone!
After Earth is devastated by an interstellar war between two alien races, the few surviving members of humanity are dragged kicking and screaming into a complex galaxy of terror and adventure they didn't even know existed.
Fortunately—or maybe unfortunately, we told you there are some twists—Texan Heath Huston bands together with others of his ilk to form the Fear Agents, a ragtag collection of survivors intent on revenge.
What happens next? Well, that's up to you, the newest recruits in what is almost certainly a suicide mission. But it will be one hell of a ride!
Inside the whopping 192 pages of the Fear Agent™ RPG, you'll find:
- Heath, Mara, Charlotte, and all the other main characters from the comics statted out for Savage Worlds
- New Edges and Hindrances to flesh out your post-apocalyptic booze hounds, space jockeys, and alien exterminators.
- Rules for spaceships, warp travel, alien worlds, time travel, alternate dimensions, and more
- A gazetteer of the planets Heath Huston visited during his adventures
- More alien races and creatures than you can shake a feeder's tentacles at
- A Plot Point Campaign that builds on the events of the comics, taking the heroes to the ends of the Commonwealth and beyond
- Enough Savage Tales to fill a smuggler's hold
- A series of flashback scenarios to let your players fight in the Anubis Conflict itself
- An adventure generator to create a terror-filled universe of encounters
Printed in our graphic novel format and available in Limited Edition hardcover, this game will take you to the terrifying edges of space and time!
The Game Master Screen for Fear Agent™ RPG comes with a complete adventure, Feeding Time! You don't really want to know what's getting fed, do you?
Please note a copy of the Savage Worlds core rules is necessary to play and is not included in any reward level. Buy it now at www.peginc.com for $9.99!
The extra-large 192 page Fear Agent™ RPG is $29.99 for softcover and $39.99 for Limited Edition hardcover. See Add-Ons below. (The price on the softcover should be $34.99, but we thought we'd keep the math simpler this way). The PDF release price will be $19.99 after the Kickstarer. The jumbo sized Fear Agent RPG™ book has enough material to keep you Fear Agents in business for a while!
Sculpted out of pewter at 28mm size by our friends at Bronze Age Miniatures, these seven exclusive miniatures for the Fear Agent™ RPG are the finishing touches to every game!
Get the whole set for $60 (your best deal!), or pick what you want at $10 each ($15 for the larger Tetaldian). See Add-Ons, below, for more details. Additional shipping charges will apply.
(We're also offering the set as a stand-alone reward level for $60 if you're a Fear Agent™ fan and just want the minis.)
One set of Fear Agent™ Miniatures is already included in the Fear Agent™ Best Deal reward level!
Savage Worlds lets players control their fate via Bennies...tokens that can be used to reroll dice or soak wounds. These custom Bennies feature art straight from the series. We can't tell you that the official Fear Agent™ Bennies will increase your odds of surviving a direct hit from a Zerin Raider's laser rifle, but at least you'll go down in style!
Each set of twenty custom, high-quality, ceramic poker chips features five iconic designs from the series. The reverse of each chip shows the setting logo.
Made from 11.5 gram ABS composite casino-style poker chips.
Increase your pledge by $15 to add on a set of Bennies. See Add-Ons, below, for more details. Additional shipping charges will apply.
One set of Fear Agent™ Bennies is already included in the Fear Agent™ GM and Best Deal reward levels!
A set of high quality dice for the Fear Agent™ RPG comes with a custom Wild Die, as well as the usual d20, d12, d10, d8, d6, and d4.
Like with the Bennies, there's no scientific proof these dice will save your booze-soaked bacon in the depths of space, but we wouldn't want to face a jellybrain without 'em!
Increase your pledge by $10 to add one set of dice and $2 to add one Wild Die to your rewards. See Add-Ons, below, for more details. Additional shipping charges will apply.
Price on the Dice set increases after the Kickstarter.
One set of Fear Agent™ Dice is already included in the Fear Agent™ GM and Best Deal reward levels!
Rick Remender (Black Science, Seven to Eternity, Captain America), Tony Moore (The Walking Dead, Deadpool, Exterminators), and Jerome Opeña (The Avengers, Moon Knight, Uncanny X-Force) created the high-energy action and adventure series, Fear Agent™ in 2005. In Rick's own words, it all starts with "an alcoholic alien exterminator...", "dealing with the damage of what was left in his wake." (Paste, 2016)
The series features countless creepy aliens, desperate tales of action and adventure, and best of all, some really incredible twists you just won't see coming.
Here's what Savage Worlds creator Shane Hensley says about Fear Agent™. "We've created more than a game engine with Savage Worlds. We've created a sort of movement to discover all the cool things you can do with it. When I read Fear Agent™, I was personally hooked from about this image on..."
"When I got to the chase scene with Heath and Mara soon after, I knew it was a natural match for our game. Then I read the story, uncovered the big twists, and got obsessed. I wanted to write the roleplaying game myself, but due to other projects I couldn't. Fortunately, we have a secret weapon named John "Night Train" Goff in our back pocket. I sent him the graphic novels and he was as hooked as I was. What happened after that, in my humble opinion, is pure magic. Space magic, maybe, but magic!"
Awesome! So Where Can I Read These Amazing Tales?
We're glad you asked!

New To RPGs? or Just New to Savage Worlds?
Perhaps you love Fear Agent™ but haven't tried a tabletop roleplaying game (RPG) before. Or maybe you're an avid gamer but new to Savage Worlds. No matter whether you're an RPG veteran or starting from scratch, the end result is fun!
A Brief Company Backstory
Shane Hensley is the name on this Kickstarter because we predate Kickstarter company profiles (and because he created Savage Worlds way back in 2003). Shane is President of Pinnacle Entertainment Group, who publishes the Savage Worlds core rules and more than 20 unique settings—or worlds in RPG lingo—to play in. Other companies make additional material as Official Licensees for the Savage Worlds rule system, and there are great fan-made products out there to enjoy as well.
The Idea Behind Savage Worlds
Savage Worlds is a core rule set that can be used to play a tabletop RPG in any genre: fantasy, space, pirates, super heroes, historical horror, supernatural western...whatever you imagine, you can play!
Don't just take our word for it! Watch this 5 minute review of our core rule system.
You will need the Savage Worlds core rule book, the setting book from this Kickstarter (The Fear Agent™ RPG in either softcover or Limited Edition hardcover graphic novel format, or just PDF), a set of polyhedral dice (see Dice above) a standard deck of playing cards, gaming tokens like our Bennies, and friends! Games are played in person on a table or online using a virtual tabletop.
Download our free Test Drive rules here to learn more about our Fast! Furious! Fun! tabletop roleplaying game system. You'll get a feel for the ease of our core mechanics, see and play with pregenerated "archetype" characters, and use an introductory adventure for our Lankhmar setting, Triple Cross, so you can try it before you buy it.
You want it ALL? Then you want the Fear Agent™ Best Deal reward level! It has the book in Limited Edition hardcover, GM Screen with Feeding Time adventure, the complete set of Fear Agent™ Miniatures, plus Bennies and Dice! You're also getting all the PDFs and all the unlocked stretch goals from this Kickstarter. You're saving at least $15 on the miniatures alone, plus you get one of everything!
Or, you may be looking for just the book and GM Screen in PDF and/or print (because you think you have enough dice, Bennies, and miniatures). We think you might be underestimatin' the appeal of this game, but here you go; you want the Fear Agent™ Physical reward level. You'll get all the unlocked stretch goals and can always buy what you're missing later. You'll just pay more.
We also have the Fear Agent™ GM reward level with the book in regular softcover edition, GM Screen with Feeding Time adventure, Dice, and Bennies. And like all of our Kickstarter projects, you'll get the PDFs for these and all stretch goals.
You want Just the Book between your tentacles? We got just that in the Fear Agent™ Just the Book reward level—or for those embracing the digital age PDF version in the Fear Agent™ Digital reward level. Just the Book backers get all unlocked stretch goals; Digital folks get only the digital ones.
Finally, for those who are just looking for some cool new miniatures, we have the Fear Agent™ Miniatures reward level.
But trust us. The Fear Agent™ Best Deal is the best deal out there, and it'll only get better once we unlock stretch goals!
Get the best of both worlds! Pledge for The Goon™ RPG and the Fear Agent™ RPG and save on shipping!
We'll combine your Kickstarter orders for shipping, and you won't miss out on the fun in the other campaign!
By combining both pledges into one package for shipping it'll cost less to ship. We pass the savings along as a credit in your PledgeManager account which you can use toward your Add-ons. We won't know how much credit you'll have until we've tallied up everything in your package.

Now Australian Friendly! And Still EU Friendly!
We have sister warehouses in Germany and Australia who help us ship EU products so we pay the VAT and most other customs taxes.
How does our Aus- and EU-Friendly shipping work?
Our U.S. warehouse partner, Studio 2 Publishing, prepares each package stateside, then puts them on a pallet. A freight forwarding agent receives the pallet in the U.S. and facilitates the pallet's delivery to Germany and Australia. Once the pallet is received locally it goes pretty quickly! Your tracking number will not be issued until it ships from our sister warehouse.
First, coupons are issued through the Pinnacle website tied to your Kickstarter backer email and the "product" reward level. Once you complete check out for this "product" all your rewards will automatically show up in your PEG account! You only need to complete this process once.
If you have any trouble with the Pinnacle website, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each PDF reward is also delivered through our friends at OneBookShelf (who run both DriveThruRPG and RPGNow). A link is sent to your Kickstarter email address to give you a complementary copy of the PDF. If you do not see the email, check your Notifications Inbox after logging into DriveThruRPG.
Each download will be delivered individually a few weeks after delivery through PEGinc.com.
If you have any trouble with your rewards at OneBookShelf, file a ticket here.
The survey is sent at the conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign (Target: May 2017). You may either pledge for Add-On items now or during the survey.
To add on items now, click on the pledge level you want. It should show you the current total you've pledged. Add funds equal to the Add-On item price to your total pledge. There is no special button or function for this--Add-Ons are something of a Kickstarter tradition, not part of the Kickstarter website software. You have to do the math.
Please note you may be charged additional shipping for those Add-On items during the survey anyway (it's the same shipping price whether you Add-On now or later).
To Add-On items during the survey, do nothing now. When you receive your survey, you can choose which Add-Ons you want. The survey does the extra math and you will pay for the Add-Ons via credit card.
If you have any questions, email Jodi at PEGJodi@gmail.com.
