Bulldogs! boldly grows with the Heart of the Fury supplemental campaign book
January 5, 2017 - 5:27pm
Fans of science fiction and the role-playing system Fate may be familiar with Bulldogs!, the fast and furious space-faring campaign setting. Where Fate is a more in-your-face style of tabletop role-playing, so too does Bulldogs! skip much of the math and buggery to produce instead more action-packed sequences of heroics and daring-do. Yet like space exploration, even in a pulp-style narrative, it becomes necessary to broaden horizons and Heart of the Fury seeks to do just that. The recently released supplement book adds a lot more to see, fight, and deal with in Bulldogs! adventures, as explained via the press release: "This 260-page adventure campaign includes a dozen different adventures and new rules for Bulldogs! campaigns. Heart of the Fury adds a new Psychic skill and stunts to add mental powers to the game, three new playable alien species, and an excellent example of how to craft a full arc campaign to players’ own Bulldogs! game." Developed with the help of Gareth Hanrahan, Heart of the Fury is thicker than the core book and runs on the latest version of the Fate Core System to deliver long-lasting stories for those that seek them. As said by Hanrahan himself, "The Bulldogs! setting has a number of guns built into it, and I took great and unbridled glee in running around pulling as many triggers as I could. Now, it's up to the player characters to start dodging.” For those interested, check out publisher Galileo Games' own website to find all the appropriate avenues of procuring a copy and expanding your Bulldogs! adventures.
