Deep in the heart of an orcish homeland, torn apart by roving adventurers and power-hungry imperialists, a drow slave and a lone orc trek across hostile territory to exact revenge on an adventuring party for a a history of violences committed against them and their people...
Savage Blood is a story-game for 1-5 players about revenge and colonial ultraviolence - a revisionist fantasy story that flips the script and humanizes the plight and homogenization of the drow and orc civilizations by the dominant "races", especially in lieu of the real-world allusions to real-life colonization and racism present in traditional fantasy genre.
This game is best played with the intention to explore the darker side of adventuring parties in a culture that rewards treasure-hunting loners trespassing into the homelands of other civilizations and killing whoever they deem hostile.
It can also be used as a light worldbuilding exercise to add complexity to your existing fantasy world or campaign.
Savage Blood uses an intuitive technique of discovering/divining a story through the usage of art/tarot/oracle decks developed by @temporalhiccup in Stories Of Love in Manila.This game also takes heavy design inspiration from Archangel Dating Simulator by @mariamison.
This game is directly inspired by recent Orcs discourse on Twitter and The Nightingale (2018), a revenge movie directed by Jennifer Kent which deals with the exact same themes.
