Play characters who are becoming something less human and more like the beings found in stories; the Fae, monsters, gods, and everything in between.

Fae Nightmares is a Modern Urban Fantasy setting for the Savage Worlds system. Fae Nightmares combines the Urban Fantasy genre’s roots in detective and horror stories, and the wonder and fear found in Fairy Tales. Players and GMs alike can draw from a wide range of legends and myths: from Celtic Fae to Native American stories; from urban myths to lumberjack tall tales. There are so many stories and inspirations that are ridiculously cool and just don’t get enough recognition!

In the midst of a shadow war between two Fae Courts in your own city, you are thrown into a world of extremes and contradiction where you must to adapt to a new reality, or perish.

The setting, Arden, was build in modular pieces so that you can play in Arden or your own home. Each sub-location has its own flavor and personality (and encounters), making a rich tapestry of locations. While set in a big city, the courts have more of a small community feel - the number of Fae and Nightmares measure in the hundreds. This, and the shape-shifting nature of many characters, have contributed to the setting being particularly gender neutral, queer & LGBT friendly.

Fae Nightmares contains:

  • 211 full-color pages
  • 4 flexible character "races"
  • 5 new arcane backgrounds
  • 14 new Hindrances
  • 32 new Edges, focusing on the progression of your character into something supernatural
  • over 150 magic and enchant-able items, along with tables for creating your own
  • 53 locations, each with their own unique flavor and encounters.
  • 2 Plot Point Campaigns and 27 Savage Tales
  • 250 encounters - 80 of which are unique Fae types
  • d100 table of random Fae Food effects
  • Fae personality generators

Once combined with the Savage Worlds Deluxe rules, this book contains everything a GM needs to run a campaign, and all the information for players. The Player's Guide is not necessary to play the game. It is a shortened book, to keep Arden’s precious secrets away from nosy players.

PDFs includes the full-color version.

When is it expected that the price drops? I'm interested in this book all of this year.

If this proof works out, within the next two months. If there are still print issues then it will have to be longer unfortunately. If you would like to keep an eye out, we are keeping both our facebook group and Kickstarter updated.

Sorry to everyone who has been looking to grab this setting. We'd hit some unexpected delays.

We intended to keep Fae Nightmares hidden until ready for release, but a bug caused Kickstarter backers to be unable to download updated files. The reason we moved to DriveThru as soon as we did.

The PDF was not released as we noticed some editing and layout issues in the print version that were also affecting the PDF. I'm working on sorting out issues with the print proof currently. My goal is to open this up in the next few months at the latest.

Can anyone verify if the developer is even still alive?

Yup. Me too. Waiting for a good urban fantasy setting for Savage Worlds. This is ridiculous.

Yep. Sure would like to buy this. For a reasonable price of course.

At this point since it has been months I feel that people who are interested in this need to report it to either be taken down or finally repriced.

"**Currently overpriced until Kickstarter Backers have had an opportunity to download** The price will drop soon."

"Soon"? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Four and a half months later, still waiting for the price to drop. Just how long does it take for your backers to download anyway?

I'm starting to worry that I won't be able to buy this. Some things in my life are about to change, and if the price doesn't revert to normal by the end of the week, I will lose my chance to buy this :(

Why does this cost $10,000?

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.
