The first playtest packet for the Legend edition of Mercenary Breed is now available. This first packet covers most of the Mercenary’s Handbook including the following:
- New skills
- Character traits
- Xeno templates (sci-fi backgrounds)
- Random Xeno Generator
- Introduction to Mercenary Breed
- Ranged weapons
- Melee weapons
- New combat maneuvers
- Mundane equipment
- Information on creating a myriad of sci-fi settings, adventures, and campaigns using Mercenary Breed.
This first packet contains no layout, artwork, or final editing. It does contain everything you need to create characters and equip them with gear. We’re looking for feedback on the character creation piece, the Random Xeno Generator, the new weapons, and the new combat maneuvers.
If you’re interested, shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org!
You can preview some of the artwork and layout for the upcoming book in the Savage Worlds previews we’ve posted here in the Blog category. The artwork and layout will be the same for both editions, but there are obviously significant mechanical changes for the Legend edition.
Those who participate in the playtest and provide valuable feedback qualify for a free PDF of ALL THREE CORE BOOKS! You will also be listed in the book as playtesters and will help lay the grounds for the first Legend-powered sci-fi setting. You’re even free to talk about the playtest in the Mongoose Publishing forum post, although we do ask that you don’t share the playtest packet with anyone other than your gaming group.
