I’m Kickstarting a brand new tabletop RPG setting for fans of Ninja Turtles and Thundercats and everything where groups of weirdos have to protect humanity from some masked menace. Introducing KUNG FU ANIMALS (SAVE THE WORLD)!

What’s the Goal?
I want to create the ultimate roleplaying game for fans of comics and shows like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, ThunderCats, Kung Fu Panda, Street Sharks, Captain Planet, and lesser-known classics like Silver Hawks and Tiger Sharks! I grew up loving those shows–where a cast of not-quite-human outcasts protect the world from nefarious threats and costumed maniacs. But outside of some long out of print books, no RPG has managed to capture the fun, excitement, and sheer oddity of those stories.

I want to change that.

So I’m creating KUNG FU ANIMALS (SAVE THE WORLD) using the fast, fun, and furious Savage Worlds roleplaying system.

I’m a huge fan of Savage Worlds, having played it for years and even using it for my own neo-noir crime setting, Streets of Bedlam.

What is KFA(STW)?
KUNG FU ANIMALS (SAVE THE WORLD) is a setting for the hugely-popular and immensely-fun Savage Worlds roleplaying system. It’s a book that gives players the tools to create their own wild universes where semi-human characters become the world’s greatest heroes. We start with your character’s Origin–did they come to being by accident? Experiment? Are they an alien? A machine?–and then build from there. Each step, you get Edges, Hindrances, and Skills that help shape your unique character.

Player groups are encouraged to build groups together as the best source material revolves around groups of diverse personalities who work together. Pick the size of your group, from lone wolf to dynamic duo to a sprawling troupe of heroes. The size of the group determines the dynamic–and the roles within the group. Is your character the jokester? The leader? The rebel? Or maybe they’re the mascot? Or master? You have tons of options, each granting specific bonuses that help your character stand out for their unique qualities.

As with all Savage Settings, KUNG FU ANIMALS (SAVE THE WORLD) is all about getting you to the table and playing as soon as possible. Character creation is quick–and you can shortcut the process even further by selecting a pre-made archetype, adding a few points, and being ready to roll in minutes.
