A Short Overview of the Game & Everything You Need to Play
Hollow Land is a tale of mystery and adventure, set in an alternate steampunk version of our history, where you will travel the continents trying to find the artifacts that could change the course of history – and time itself. Think books, movies and comics like Adèle Blanc-Sec, Penny Dreadful, The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and the tales of Jules Verne.
While the game is inspired by stories about rebels and dreamers who dared to go off the beaten track, and by weird and wonderful historical facts, you don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy Hollow Land (though we’ve hidden a lot of our favorite Victorian heroes and villains in the story for everyone who does enjoy that sort of thing).
The Quickstart Guide will take you to The Hague, the Netherlands in 1869 where you will find yourself in the middle of mystery, murder and mayhem. If you choose to continue the adventure with the Hollow Land main campaign, you will explore the world by zeppelin, carriage or steamship. You may even find yourself in places that aren’t on any maps known to humankind. Be careful though, because there are powerful organisations that will do everything they can to keep pulling the strings of power they’ve pulled for so very, very long.
Hollow Land is powered by Savage Worlds Adventure Edition!
