A new age has dawned.
Winter is coming and it’s going to be a cold one!
After 10 years (yes it’s been that long!), TAG is totally overhauling Hellfrost. This won’t be just a Savage Worlds Adventure Edition update, but a brand new edition of the highly regarded Savage Worlds fantasy setting.
Here’s what we’ve gleaned from the writing pit at this time:
* A single book. The current estimate is for 400 pages.
* Full color. As with the old core books, HF2 will be in glorious full color. You see some of the new cover in the image above.
* Contains the players’ guide, gazetteer, and bestiary.
* New material will added (including a new human culture), some existing material will be cut, other existing material will be included in the core book, and there will changes to most chapters.
* It will be a Kickstarter project.
* We’ll be discussing things in the new Facebook group.

I don’t use Facebook or social media in general. While the discussion may be happening on Facebook, could you put a copy of the major Facebook postings on Hellfrost in this forum?October 9, 2019 at 2:03 pm #10784dpmcalisterAdministrator

I second this as I don’t use Facebook.October 9, 2019 at 3:08 pm #10785TAG WiggyAdministrator
Simply because Facebook gives a better reach than the forum and multiple conversations need monitoring, which takes time. 90% of what we say is fixed, in that we’re telling you what will be in HF2, not asking. That will form part of the campaign page. A small amount is advisory discussion in that we’ll ask opinions before we make a final decision on certain things. That part we will discuss here as well, but in chunks rather than every day.

I don’t use Facebook either. Guess I’ll just wait for the Kickstarter!October 23, 2019 at 9:54 am #10793alfaroblMinion
I don’t have Facebook either. Hope someone is able to post some more information here or on the Webpage/newsletter for us.
But don’t expect the Kickstarter soon, a friend with FB told me that Wiggy has lots of work ahead of him and they expect it more likely during 2021. So it will be still a long wait.
From info posted there it seems like there will be new lore and a new canon like the addition of a new human race that will make the current Atlas require an update to 2ed, like the Core Book.
Hope we will be able to keep the current adventures compatible. It should be just updating the bestiary?October 5, 2021 at 5:37 pm #11291wmarshalMinion
Any news on this front?October 6, 2021 at 8:51 am #11292TAG RobinAdministrator
Currently the project is on indefinite hold.
It is not being worked on and we have no plans for working on it at the moment.
Wiggy is not in a position to take on this size of project currently and so we are focussing on other things that he can work on.
Hellfrost is still an important brand for us and hope to return to it again in the future.

Patience is a virtue I guess……so I’ll be patiently waiting!
