Superheroes in the American Revolution for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition!

Legion of Liberty: Superheroes of 1776 follows the adventures of a group of young superhuman heroes fighting for independence in the American colonies. As the war progresses, the heroes will develop new powers and find new enemies - and their actions can change the course of history.

In the Americas, a tiny percentage of people develop superpowers around the age of 12. All of the European powers are competing for colonization in part to acquire these superhumans and use them in their ongoing power struggles in Europe. The British conscript their superhumans into the Royal Superhuman Regiment - the notorious Greycoats; the Sons of Liberty, however, have hidden some young superhumans, waiting for the right time to rebel against the tyranny of King George.

The Legion of Liberty Setting Book will have:
  • 22 new Edges and Hindrances for building superhuman heroes
  • 18 new Powers ranging from shifting your body into solid rock to controlling the weather
  • Rules for superpowered skirmishes on black powder battlefields
  • A complete Plot Point Campaign where the results of one battle determine where the heroes will fight next
  • An adventure generator for raids, battles, reconnaissance and skullduggery in the revolution

Legion of Liberty requires the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition Core Rules to play.

Now on Kickstarter!

Is there an option in this to play the good guys, rather than the insurgents?

I'm looking to run this setting, but I'm trying to understand something:
Paul Revere has skills for both Speed and Quickness. Does this mean to get a modifier for an ability, you have to take the ability again and use it as a separate skill? I just don't quite "get" why he needs both Speed and Quickness.

I see the confusion. In the wave of changes made to the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition, the Quickness power was dropped. We need to update the Jumpstart to describe the power that Revere actually has. Quickness, when activated, allows Revere to take an extra turn each round. Basically, he takes his turn, and then immediately takes another one. We're in the middle of launching the Legion of Liberty Kickstarter, but we should be able to update the Jumpstart in a week or two.

Hope that helps! Thanks for playing Legion of Liberty!

SWADE allows PCs to take up to 3 actions per turn. Each action after the first applies a Multi-Action Penalty (MAP) of -2 per extra action for each action taken in a turn. That means 3 actions by a PC in a turn results in -4 for each action. Sloth/Speed power with Quickness power modifier applied allows a PC to take two actions per turn without taking a -2 MAP for each action. Or take 3 actions with a -2 MAP for each action. This is not the same as Savage Worlds Deluxe that give characters two turns. You get just one turn but you are allowed to have that extra action without penalties applying for two of the three allowed actions.

All correct with respect to the Speed/Sloth power - we'll be updating the Jumpstart in parallel with the release of the setting book, which is on track for September.

I played in an scenario run by the creator, Scott , at the Arisia 2019 Con this past weekend and it was a blast. A very cool setting for those interested in a different take on supers! I am definitely backing this Kickstarter.

File Size:

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.
