Welcome to Sherwood Forest, a place of mystery and excitement. Band together to oppose the forces of the Sheriff and Prince John in England during the Third Crusade. Create your characters to do what is best for England and King Richard by protecting his interests at home.
This setting book allows you to play in the Medieval England of the period of the Third Crusades. The book is designed to not only emulate the historical period, but also the mythical one as well. Play in any level you would like from historical to mythical, emulating various novels, stories and tv shows about Robin Hood.
This setting can be played in either historic or mythical mode. Historic is more realistic, leaving out magic, but in mythical mode, magic has been added to the setting allowing you to play in the fantastic.
This book is the second edition and is written by Jonathan M. Thompson and Wil Upchurch and will be available for the Savage Worlds Role Playing Game. The manuscript is complete, and an alpha draft will be made available to all confirmed backers at least one month after the Kickstarter has been funded.
What is different in this edition?
This edition has a few things different from previous editions, among them are:
- Revision of skills
- Revision of Edges and Hindrances, including new ones that are more in line with the period we are representing.
- NewInclusion of novice archetypes for quick play.
- All the material has had some revision to it, including some clean up of rules or background material.
Shipping is always the elephant in the room, and since we cannot control the rise in shipping costs we will instead offer you a different way to have your book shipped to you. You, the backer, will get to chose your own level of shipping. For a single pledge of $15 you will get a coupon code to purchase the book at cost from DTRPG.com. The books will retail for $20, plus shipping. This gives you control over how fast you want the books shipped to you as well, plus the code will be good forever, so you dont have to have it printed right away.This cost still ends up less than the full costs of the book, plus shipping.
DTRPG codes will be provided for any additional add-on. Print copies you order at cost and pay shipping from DTRPG after buying the code from us.

Why fulfillment through DriveThruRPG?
OneBookShelf, the company behind DrivethruRPG, has been at the forefront of print-on-demand for years. The quality of their books is very good with strong paper and great binding.
By working with DriveThruRPG, we don't get surprises with shipping or production costs. We eliminate risks of finding ourselves without the funds to finish the project because they provide a reliable and affordable platform to deliver everything to high-quality standards.
Furthermore, because the stretch goals available mean the size of the book could end up being massive, this way we can concentrate on creating the best possible rulebook.
As we see it, this is a win-win way of working for everyone!
Risks and challenges
Like other projects of this type, this project is not without risks. Delays can happen, as we are only human. We will keep in contact with you concerning potential delays and such. The biggest possible delay will come from any stretch goals that we may include. The risk of delay happens anytime you put control in the hands of another person, who has their own issues they must deal with as well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
