Heroes of Terra Player's Guide (Rough Cut)

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to Terra, a parallel world where magic lives and the dinosaurs never died out. Humans never evolved on Terra--instead, the world is dominated by floral life and saurians. Humans exist on Terra, however, drawn from the legendary world of Earth.

Heroes of Terra is a pulp-fantasy setting in the vein of classic sword-and-sorcery literature, with a world that pays homage to classic video games of the early 1980s. Think of it as "Conan the Barbarian," but the main character is a mustachioed Italian plumber instead of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Influences on the setting include Super Mario Brothers, The Legend of Zelda, Elric of Melniboné, Conan the Barbarian, John Carter of Mars, the Lankhmar novels, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Donkey Kong Country, and more, all thrown into a blender on high speed.

Jump higher, grow huge, and break open chests filled with gold coins and flowers that give you magic powers. Summon up your power, gather your wisdom, and find your courage. Terra needs heroes!


This player's guide is intended to serve as an introduction to the world of Heroes of Terra, an exciting new campaign setting for Savage Worlds. The art and layout in this guide are considered to be in "rough cut" format, a preview stage before the game goes to Kickstarter in late 2016. The final version of the Player's Guide will be made available for free to all customers who purchased the rough cut after it is finished.

And keep an eye out for the full setting book when it goes to Kickstarter, Heroes of Terra: The Mushroom War!

Is this still happening? Savage Worlds isn't my cup of tea, but I'm obsessed with shroompunk.

It's still happening, albeit greatly delayed. =)

Just purchased the book and am very impressed so far with what I have read.

Is there any news on the Kickstarter or if the Kickstarter never happens will the rest of the text be offered to purchasers in an art-free version?

I, like my name semi-doppelganger there, am also interested in news of the Kickstarter. I recall that you said you were shooting for Autumn of 2016. Obviously that's already behind us.

What's the word, Blackwing?

There were some major delays, partly because of scheduling conflicts and partly because of my day job. I'm currently aiming for summer/autumn of this year.

Due to circumstances beyond publisher control, the KS has been delayed until late 2016. Hopefully, we'll have more news in the near future for our loyal customers. =)

Can't wait for the Kickstarter! I love the call outs to the games I played and loved as a kid. I will definitely be playtesting this with my local group!

I'm glad you like it! There will be tons more stuff in the main setting book too, including a load of magic flowers, rules for scavenging (including weapons you can pull right out of the ground), and a huge bestiary! If the stretch goals for the KS are met, we'll also wind up doing a Plot Point Campaign, tentatively titled "Our Princess is in Another Castle." =)

File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
