Accursed is a dark fantasy tabletop roleplay setting for Savage Worlds. The gist of the setting is that Hellboy meets Ravenloft. Player characters are all versions of classic monsters, from the Vargr (werewolves) to the Golems (Frankenstein's monster) struggling to free the land of Morden from the vile influence of the evil Witches.

Melior Via will be publishing Accursed, which is developed by Ross Watson (best known for the Warhammer 40K RPG line), Jason Marker (best known for his work on the Robotech RPG line) and myself. It's a real rush to work on a product like this with people as talented and professional as Jason and Ross.

Please take the time to visit the Accursed blog site for more information to come! We'll be updating several times each week. Today's posting covers the Order of the Penitent, a group devoted to cleansing the souls of the Accursed so that they might some day achieve redemption.

Today's blog update reveals information about the Betrayal. It was the turning point that ended the war against the Witches.

The Betrayal

In other news, the Accursed team has committed to working on one of the Stretch Goals for the Shaintar: Legends Unleashed Kickstarter. This project, from Evil Beagle Games, in conjunction with Savage Mojo, presents an Epic High Fantasy game setting for Savage Worlds. Sean Patrick Fannon has spent decades developing a great setting, that offers plenty of depth and action. With its broad range of expansion to the Savage Worlds game system, its a great setting to play in or to crib rules from.

I'll let slip that we're working with Alberto Bontempi for our cover and interior artwork. I can also tell you that we've released one of the Witchmark designs on our facebook page. However, we're waiting back a little bit before we start previewing the pencils and final art. We need to have a few surprises. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

A quick housekeeping item:
Another art preview on the Accursed Facebook page. The Shaintar Kickstarter bonus goal we're involved in met its "like" criteria, so we've shown off part of our world map to celebrate that.

For today's blog post, John presents information about the Djinn. As one of the Witches of the Grand Coven, she created the Mummies from the ruins of ancient Hyphrates. It was her death that also sundered the Grand Coven.
