Learn About Our Project:

Brian McClellan brings you epic fantasy action based on his wildly successful Powder Mage series! 

Cover! (Subject to potential change)
Cover! (Subject to potential change)

This tabletop role-playing game will immerse players in a world of muskets, intrigue, sorcery, and revolution set against the backdrop of an industrializing fantasy world that is fully realized through three (soon to be four) full novels, multiple novellas and now, this role-playing game/world-book!

The book will contain world information about The Nine, and the lands beyond, sorcery and more, while having rules for playing your very own Powder Mage, Magebreaker, Privileged, Knacked and all the wonderful characters you can imagine! 

There will be rules, new canon information, art of popular characters in the series, and pregenerated adventures and more!

The book is projected to be around 180 pages.

Brian hired Alan Bahr and Gallant Knight Games to consult and help build this roleplaying game. At first, Alan and the team worked to create a new system, much like they have for other games they've developed. However, after a year of playtesting and building, they couldn't land the flavor right. Alan built a Savage Worlds ruleset for a one-off, to see how it'd work for a stretch goal, but lo and behold, it quickly became the most popular ruleset of choice among the playtesters!

Savage World's focus on fast, furious, fun, really aligns with Brian's writing and storytelling, and the ruleset was a natural fit! So we became an official Savage Worlds licensee!

We're doing something a little unusual here. There are no stretch goals and nothing defined. We've looked into options, and we certainly have some ideas of what we're going to be doing, but we have no hard and fast stretch goals. Instead, every dollar over our funding goal we raise will be going to improving the book with things like

  • More art
  • More adventures
  • More pages dedicated to the world of Powder Mage
  • Possible accessories to the game (alternate decks of cards, GM screens, and more, are items the team has looked into). 

We want to make the best game possible, and instead of shackling ourselves to a particular goal or target, we want to be able to put our money into the game how the game needs it!
