Monster Hunter International,  the New York Times Bestselling action series is coming to the Savage Worlds roleplaying system! 

Written by Larry Correia, Monster Hunter International is an urban fantasy series about professional monster hunters who battle against the things that go bump in the night!

As the slogan goes..."Cowboy up, and get paid."

Larry is a big fan of Savage Worlds and when we approached him about doing an updated MHI roleplaying game, he immediately wanted to use one of his favorite rulesets, so that's what we did!

Gallant Knight Games has experience working in Savage Worlds, and we've enlisted the help of the lead writer on the previous MHI roleplaying game Steve S. Long!

Using the rules in the book, you'll be able to play a variety of teams in the MHI Universe, including the titular team: Monster Hunter International

The book will also include: 

  • Full details on MHI and it's history, it's organization, missions and tactics.
  • World information on PUFF, how the various governments handle monsters and more. 
  • NPC stats for a variety of characters from the books, including Owen Z. Pitt, Julie Shackleford, Agent Franks, Susan Shackleford and more, written up by the creator himself!
  • Rules for playing over two dozen teams in the MHI Universe!
  • New monsters for your hunters to face down!
  • New MHI details and fictions right from Larry!
  • AND A LOT MORE!

We're keeping this simple. What you see on the pledge levels is what you get!

Our goal is to fund a 200ish page softcover roleplaying game book for Savage Worlds. Like all Savage Worlds licensees, you'll need Savage Worlds core rulebook to play the game.

Our funding goal is $15,000, which will help cover art, printing costs and writing costs! Creating a beautiful game like this doesn't come easy.

The book will be a 7x10 graphic novel style format! We're aiming for 200 full-color pages with tons of art!

Roughly 30 to 40 pages will be the rules required to play the game, and the rest will be NPCs, art, monsters, and tons of setting information.

  • If you want to add an extra softcover of Monster Hunter International: Savage Worlds edition, you can increase your pledge by $25 USD. (No extra cost for shipping if you have a physical pledge)

The custom dice are pictured below. They'll be manufactured at the same time as the book. The icon will replace the "6" face on all dice.

  • If you want to add a single die, simply increase your pledge by $1 per dice you want (no extra shipping cost.) You must have a physical pledge already. 

The Action Deck is a custom deck of playing cards suited for Savage Worlds and themed around Monster Hunter International!

  • If you want to add an extra Action Deck, simply increase your pledge by $10 (no extra shipping cost if you have a physical pledge.)

Images of the action deck are forth coming!

As we unlock more Add-ons through stretch goals, we'll preview them here!

NOTE

This project will be using BackerKit, and all shipping will be handled in BackerKit after the campaign closes. We do our best to keep shipping costs down, but this far out, they're very hard to predict. 

Risks and challenges

Q: Can Gallant Knight Games handle this project?
This is Gallant Knight Games sixth Kickstarter, and we learned a lot from the first five. We've been early or on time every time. We have two projects that's are not out to backers yet, but one is currently printing and preparing for fulfillment, and the other is exactly on track and this project will not impact that one. This is a straightforward project with few nuances, but we're prepared to handle them, and we're shooting for the same exceptional success we've already had!

Q: What if the text or art isn't finished?
A: The draft text of all the rules is 100% done. All the art that isn't tied to stretch goals is in and done. The only text we're waiting on is the stretch goals and some of the newer adaptation of the latest books into the text, and as we depend on the backers to determine what needs to be written, those will come throughout and after the Kickstarter.

Q: What if the complexity of the project overwhelms GKG?
A: We have straight forward pledge levels to make it easy to manage, and we've budgeted our stretch goals up to our cap. In order to keep the project manageable for our small team, we've elected to minimize our stretch goals to text increases, and we've set a finite limit of page count.

Q: What about delays in art?
A: We've already began to contract out the art, and some of the art is already here. Isn't it great? We're really happy with our artists. If there's a delay on the art, we have back-up artists we've already done test runs and are ready to work with.

Q: Increase in shipping costs?
A: Shipping costs constantly rise, and while we've projected them to the best of our abilities, there's not a lot we can do if they change. However, due to the limitations on the size of our product, we're confident this won't be an issue.

Q: What if something happens to the principals?
A: If something were to happen to Alan, or another writer on the project, we've identified our backups, and our team is spread all over the world. It'd take a really big asteroid, zombie apocalypse or alien invasion to wipe us all out. The files and plans have been communicated to the whole team, and a new project lead (who has been identified) will step up.
