As an older gamer, I have come to really like the ease of the Savage Worlds system. It's not too tough to play and I've found that as game master, I hardly have to look at the rules books (which is a huge plus). One of the settings I really like the concept of is Weird Wars 2. Although to be fair, I never really played it yet. They also have Tour of Darkness, which is Weird Wars during the Vietnam Conflict (or war depending on you point of view). Now comes the lastest Weird War funded via Kickstarter : Weird Wars Rome!

After doing my part to fund this Kickstarter, I told my friend Tony about it. The first words he sent were "OOOOOHHH" (or something like it). Something about the idea of Rome Legions really hit a chord with us. We spent the sometime talking about a bunch of ideas for a game. Mind you neither of us have really seen the game (after all it is a Kickstarter). This I think is important. While I like the Wierd Wars 2 idea, I was really having a hard time trying to come up with ideas for adventures. It was a setting that I wanted to play in, I really wasn't up to running it. Part of that we think was the time frame of the war, which is sort about 6 years. For some reason both of felt tied to the history. With Rome, there many more years to deal with and we actually feel less obligated to history for some reason. The only thing I can think of is that Rome really fired our imagination.

So if the idea of Roman Legions, Gladiators, Celts, and Eyptian Pharohs has your attention, then I sugguest you back this Kickstarter. For $20, you will get a PDF of the Rulebook. For $30, you will get the PDF and a Softcover copy of the rulebook. Personally, I think that's an outstanding price. I personally pledged for a hardcover (I like hardcovers).

So Go to the Kickstarter and pledge for your copy today.
