The Subterranean Monarch - Thrilling Tales 2e: Pulp Villains PDF for Savage Worlds RPG

Adamant Entertainment is pleased to present the latest in our new line of Thrilling Tales products: Pulp Villains!

Each Pulp Villains release will detail a nefarious non-player-character, ready to be dropped into your pulp-genre Savage Worlds game, fully statted, with details on their methods, motives, special gear, henchmen, allies and more -- along with a collection of adventure hooks for their use.

In this installment:

AN UNDERGROUND EMPIRE!
A MERCENARY ARMY!
A TERRIFYING DESPOT!

WHAT LURKS BELOW...

“Oh, yes, my children! Like you, I have been hunted. Like you, my birthright was lost to misadventure and folly. While you toiled in darkness, deep beneath the surface, you lost your way. You forgot your illustrious history! And above you, weak-minded simpletons have forged kingdoms that are but pale imitations of your forebears. They have grown fat and decadent, and are unworthy of their purloined place in the sun.

“But no more! I will restore your kingdom. I will rule. And I will nally reap the rewards owed to me...and elevate you back to your rightful glory!

“Woe betide any who stand against the Subterranean Monarch! Forward, my Mantle Men! Forward to victory, in the name of your god-king!”

Pulp Villains: The Subterranean Monarch, by Keith A. Garrett and Eric Trautmann, uses the Savage Worlds rules system, as featured in THRILLING TALES 2nd Edition.

#RPGaDay2016, Day 16 - Historical person you'd like in your group. What game?

For my answer, I'm creating a fantasy that Edgar Rice Burroughs is proficient in GMing RPGs. He runs a campaign in which we all discover Pellucidar for the very first time. Using the Hollow Earth Expedition RPG.

There. That's my answer.

Sagoths by Spearhafoc



Hollow Earth Cultures: Sagoths from the Pelludidar series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. They're the apish servants of the Mahars.

Warning, some racism ahead.

"Behind them, streaming through the pass which leads into the valley, came a swarm of hairy men—gorilla-like creatures armed with spears and hatchets, and bearing long, oval shields. Like demons they set upon the ape-things, and before them the hyaenodon, which had now regained its senses and its feet, fled howling with fright. Past us swept the pursued and the pursuers, nor did the hairy ones accord us more than a passing glance until the arena had been emptied of its former occupants. Then they returned to us, and one who seemed to have authority among them directed that we be brought with them."
"Our guards, whom I already have described as gorilla-like men, were rather lighter in build than a gorilla, but even so they were indeed mighty creatures. Their arms and legs were proportioned more in conformity with human standards, but their entire bodies were covered with shaggy, brown hair, and their faces were quite as brutal as those of the few stuffed specimens of the gorilla which I had seen in the museums at home.
Their only redeeming feature lay in the development of the head above and back of the ears. In this respect they were not one whit less human than we. They were clothed in a sort of tunic of light cloth which reached to the knees. Beneath this they wore only a loin cloth of the same material, while their feet were shod with thick hide of some mammoth creature of this inner world.
Their arms and necks were encircled by many ornaments of metal—silver predominating—and on their tunics were sewn the heads of tiny reptiles in odd and rather artistic designs. They talked among themselves as they marched along on either side of us, but in a language which I perceived differed from that employed by our fellow prisoners. When they addressed the latter they used what appeared to be a third language, and which I later learned is a mongrel tongue rather analogous to the Pidgin-English of the Chinese coolie."
