What is Savage Borderlands?

Savage Borderlands is the adaptation of the Borderlands videogame universe to the Savage Worlds Deluxe table top roleplaying game rules.

It draws its inspiration from Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! and Tales from the Borderlands. At the moment, Savage Borderlands is more focused on playing during or just after the events of Borderlands 2, but you can play almost anything that exists in these four games.

Savage Borderlands is a technical adaptation. Although it tries to be very faithful to the videogames universe's lore, there is no real background content (I'd like to add some, but I'm trying to be as fair as possible towards Gearbox Software's IP).

Coventry is not really a Borderlands adaptation, but it's a great Borderlands inspired campaign setting. As it is not a pure adaptation, the author has worked with much more freedom regarding the Borderlands world than I have and the result is pretty inspiring. If you're playing Savage Borderlands, you can find a lot of interesting stuff in Coventry, and you can even use it as a sister planet to Pandora.

No Rest for the Wicked

Go to the website

No Rest for the Wicked is Bordelands, powered by the Apocalypse: instead of Savage Worlds, the author is using Apocalypse World's ruleset. The gameplay is very different, but it fits Borderlands perfectly. Being a fan of Apocalypse World, I guess I wouldn't have written Savage Borderlands if had found No rest for the Wicked sooner!
