Apocalypse Prevention, Inc. - Savage Worlds Edition

A clever pastiche of Angel, Blade, HP Lovecraft, and above all else, Men In Black, it's eldritch horror done with tongue in cheek. Demons walk among us but you can't notice the weird fish-man demon if he's wearing a trenchcoat and a floppy hat. Occult shops sell real actual items of power, to those in the know. Back alley doctors install cybernetic parts on human and demon alike. And regulating all of them is a shadowy mega-corporation and its agents in black suits, responsible for stopping a dozen apocalypses so far.


The book is largely black text on white, with a few comic art pieces here and there - definetly printer-friendly.


While the concept is wonderful, and the chapters on cybernetics and magic are really good, but the last couple of chapters, describing API's operations, it tends to drag a bit. There's no adventure generator, custom Savage Tales, or sample antagonists to give GMs a boost when it comes to prep time. This is a conversion from their own in-house game system to Savage Worlds, and there's a few places where the editor failed to notice a mechanic from the previous system slipped through (what's a Passion Roll?).


Stellar product otherwise. Glad I picked it up during Savage September!

A fine addition to the Savage Worlds family. I was lucky enough to play a API Savage at Gencon 2012. Admittedly I was a little hesitant with how some of the special powers and different races would translate to Savage Worlds. After playing through API Savage I was pleasantly surprised with how smoothly Eloy Lasanta was able to transition API from his own system to Savage Worlds. Cool new races, racial edges, edges and hindrances. Congrats to Third Eye Games.
