I backed the Crystal Hearts setting for Savage Worlds. It's terrible how the usual toxic masculine "gamer" crowd is currently rabidly foaming at the mouths over it. This remains why we can't have nice things.

@max I'm glad I've not seen the negatives, we have been waiting for this to come out for months now (we followed the comic before they started Crystal Hearts)

@JoeTortuga I'm glad I've seen it mostly only indirectly in my FB notifications, mostly good friends fighting the fires in the official Savage Worlds group.

It did bring the game to my attention, at least. I'm planning to dive into the comic soon.

@max What is Crystal Hearts? What is Savage Worlds?

@doolbneerg Savage Worlds is an RPG system like D&D/Pathfinder/GURPS/what have you.

Crystal Hearts is a setting book for Savage Worlds on Kickstarter right now that spun out of a web comic. The setting and art resemble something like Steven Universe or the new She-Ra.

Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
