[Pinnacle] 50 Fathoms Returns – Sail the Savage Seas of Caribdus!

By on 23 November 2011

Return to one of Savage World’s earliest settings—50 Fathoms! The new 50 Fathoms: Explorer’s Edition includes the fully updated text of the original 50 Fathoms and the 50 Fathoms Companion, all compatible with Savage Worlds Deluxe and beautifully colored by three-time Hugo Award-winning artist Cheyenne Wright! It’s everything you’ve ever loved brought to the high standards we all now demand!

You can buy the 50 Fathoms PDF immediately, preorder the printed 50 Fathoms book, or get the Print-PDF Preorder Bundle. The custom-printed 50 Fathoms Bennies are available now, too. These Cheyenne Wright-illustrated poker chips are truly a lost treasure ready to shine as you enter the drowned world of Caribdus. There’s also a 50 Fathoms MegaBundle available that includes the PDF, the printed book preorder, and a set of the custom bennies. Stock your treasure chest and set sail for adventure now!

The world is drowning. The natives say three witches in Ograpog were sentenced to death by King Amemnus and drowned by the rising tide. With their dying breath, they cursed Caribdus to drown as they were, to drown in fifty fathoms of cold dark sea.

Crab-like scurillians, massive grael, lonely doreen, mysterious kraken, cruel kehana, and the nigh-human masaquani now sail the seas beside the new visitors—humans from the age of piracy, dashing corsairs, bloodthirsty bucaneers, and savage sea dogs drawn from earth. Many believe these visitors to be destined to defeat the Sea Hags and save Caribdus from a watery grave, but most seem interested only in the plunder of forgotten treasures in a drowning world.

Be the hero you were meant to be. Sail the seas. Buckle your swashes. Fight the good fight. Save the world. Come to Caribdus.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
