(MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE ADD ONS BELOW FOR MINIS, ROCKETS, AND MORE!)

With a deafening roar, Dr. Zarkov’s rocket ship, with Flash and Dale aboard, shrieks into the heavens and heads straight toward the onrushing planet with a madman at the controls!

Drawing inspiration from Alex Raymond's original strips, the serials, AND the 1980 movie starring Sam J. Jones and Max von Sydow, this is far more than just a game, this is a definitive resource for all Flash Gordon's adventures!

AND it includes a foreword by none other than Sam J "Flash Gordon" Jones himself! See the link here for more details!

Foreword by actor, US Marine, and all around great guy Sam J Jones!
Foreword by actor, US Marine, and all around great guy Sam J Jones!

Author Scott Woodard dug deep into the history of this genre-defining series, bringing every corner of the setting to vibrant life. Heroes can foment rebellion in Mingo City, marvel at the tree-cities of Prince Barin's Arboria, bake in Volcano World's Land of the Dead, and shiver in Frigia or the cruel Ice Kingdom of Naquk.

Along the way they'll encounter far more than just Ming's merciless minions! Bore worms, cave dragons, sharkons, wolvrons, and over FIFTY strange and exotic creatures roam the strange world of Mongo!

Best of all, for fans of Savage Worlds, The Savage World of Flash Gordon™ features all the new powers, Edges, Hindrances, and amazing gear you've come to expect...but also an incredible new Setting Rule called...

At the beginning of each session, the players are given the Cliffhanger token. When the group decides to use it, they flip it over to the CLIFFHANGER side! Everyone gets a reward of some kind such as drawing or refilling their Bennies, or gaining Conviction (more below!). But then the situation goes from the proverbial frying pan into the fire in some way!

We'll provide a print and play Cliffhanger token online, but those of you pledging for the Kickstarter Limited Edition Collector's Box Set get this amazing, polished brass version, designed by the always amazing, spaceship lovin', three-time Hugo Award™ winning artist, Cheyenne Wright!

This is the design for the 4" long, polished brass Cliffhanger token that comes *only* in the Kickstarter Limited Edition Collector's Box Set!

Here are the production samples for the actual Cliffhanger token!

Once the Cliffhanger is in play, the GM either decides what happens based on the circumstances, or better yet, lets the players choose from a number of options...and we even have cards for them! 

The Cliffhanger cards are available as a print and play PDF or in print as an unlocked stretch goal! Check out www.peginc.com to learn more. 

Three sample Cliffhanger cards...the symbols on the upper right tell the group what they get for taking on the Cliffhanger!
Three sample Cliffhanger cards...the symbols on the upper right tell the group what they get for taking on the Cliffhanger!

Example: Flash, Dale, Hans, and Thun battle Ming's soldiers on the streets of Mingo City. Hans is out of Bennies, so another shot from the enemy's atom pistol may spell his doom! Hans' player calls for a Cliffhanger. The other players agree and they choose "Out of the Frying Pan!"

The GM tells everyone to take five while she sets up the new scene. She decides one of Ming's soldiers has thrown a grenade that cracks open the city streets. The heroes plunge into the sewers below, straight into the lair of an angry gocko and the cave men who worship it!

The GM narrates: "Flash and his companions had Ming's minions on the run! Little did they know a new terror lurked beneath their very feet!"

The group faces a new challenge, but have refilled their Bennies and are ready for action!

Conviction

So what's Conviction? In Flash Gordon™, heroes earn special Bennies that add to an existing roll rather than just rerolling it! Conviction is very rare so save it for those special moments when you really need to pull off an amazing feat Mongoians will talk about for generations to come!

You get these five chips IN ADDITION to our usual set of 20 Bennies!

Each set of Bennies includes five special Conviction chips!
Each set of Bennies includes five special Conviction chips!

Conviction is similar to Legend Chips in Deadlands or Extra Effort in Savage Rifts®, but only available by playing Cliffhangers in The Savage World of Flash Gordon!™

The Kingdoms of Mongo is a 192-page comprehensive guide to the many diverse lands that can be found upon, above, and even within the great planet of Mongo. 

This volume examines the cultures, geography, technology, and denizens of each location, presenting all the information one might need to survive beyond the safety and security of Mingo City’s thick klangstone walls and energized lightning fields.  

The Kingdoms of Mongo focuses on nine individual kingdoms: Arboria, Coralia, Frigia, Kira, Radiuma, Sky City, Skyland, Tropica, and Valkr. It includes player-friendly information as well as secret material for Game Master eyes only, including new monsters, new adversaries, and all-new Savage Tales.

Are you new to the Savage Worlds game system? Let's fix that!

Savage Worlds provides a core set of rules for our many different settings, including award-winning, best-selling worlds like Deadlands: The Weird West, Weird Wars, Rippers, The Last Parsec, East Texas University, and so many more!

We also allow other companies to use our system, so you might see other Savage Worlds-powered games out there by our many friends.

If you've played roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons, you'll be able to pick up Savage Worlds easily. We even have a Test Drive version of the game you can download and try right now, featuring Fritz Leiber's legendary Lankhmar setting!

 

You can also check out a HOST of FREE short adventures called "One Sheets" on our site by clicking here!

I Love It! What's Next?

When you decide our game is for you, take the next step by getting the Savage Worlds core rule book, a set of polyhedral dice, a standard deck of playing cards with the Jokers left in, and some gaming tokens like our custom Bennies (we make a complete line of high-quality clay poker chips for each of our game lines). You'll also need some great friends to play with, either in person or online using a virtual tabletop.

Dice, cards, and Bennies come in The Savage World of Flash Gordon™ box set. Friends don't fit in there, unless they're a strange new species of Mongoian we haven't encountered yet!

We can't guarantee your package will arrive via Hawkman Rocket Cycle, but it will come as fast as we mere humans can make it happen.

Your support helps us print the book and make the extras. This means delivery of the main PDFs about a month after funding and the physical products about 5 months later depending on the printer and shipping.

1. PDF Delivery

Shortly after the Kickstarter ends and all funds are collected, we'll begin delivering PDF rewards through DriveThruRPG.com. PDFs will also be available through PEGinc.com.

 2. Physical Delivery 

Our company is based in the United States. A third party shipping service will pack and fulfill most orders. 

The service has fulfillment centers in Australia, Canada, Germany (for EU friendly shipping), and the United States. It is our hope that this results in lower customs taxes and shipping costs for many of you. Those living in New Zealand and the European Free Trade Association (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland) should also have customs paid by us as part of our agreement with the third party shipping. 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Full transparency... we're printing Flash Gordon no matter what and have the funds to do so. The Kickstarter is to help spread awareness (we're a very small company so marketing funds are always tight) and to create all the extras like the brass Cliffhanger token, adventures, and other surprises we hope to to reach via Stretch Goals.

Pinnacle Entertainment Group has launched and delivered multiple Kickstarter projects, including:

√ Doomtown Reloaded: There Comes a Reckoning 2017
√ The Goon™ RPG for Savage Worlds 2017
√ Fear Agent™ RPG for Savage Worlds 2017
√ 20th Anniversary Edition of Deadlands Classic 2016
√ Deadlands: Good Intentions 2016
√ Rifts® for Savage Worlds 2016
√ Weird War I 2016
√ Rippers Resurrected 2015
√ The Sixth Gun for Savage Worlds 2015
√ Deadlands: Stone and a Hard Place 2015
√ Deadlands: The Cackler Graphic Novel 2015
√ The Last Parsec 2014
√ East Texas University 2014
√ Weird Wars Rome 2013
√ Deadlands Noir 2012

We feel confident our products will be delivered on time and at our usual standards, but of course any number of issues may arise and would be handled to the best of our ability.
