  • Wanted a few savage bugs

    I'm gearing up for a savage rifts game using giant mutant bugs from the mutants in orbit setting. Anyone know a good savage setting I can make mutant humanoid bugs in or rip some off from?

    You can star with the Core Rules. The Bestiary has a Spider, Giant that is about the size of a golden retriever.
    Upscale that, modify with whatever you want for style and tone, and have fun.
    Make sure to give them Mega Damage weapons as needed to be a legit threat. Maybe that's "none" because no one normally has M.D.C., or maybe it's "all" because everyone normally has M.D.C. Either way, that's probably where I would start.
    I hope you find the above post useful. And not insulting, because I was trying to be helpful, not insulting; being a pedantic jerk, that isn't always clear.

      I would suggest starting with the Xiticix and modifying them as needed.

      they have some of the highest offensive damage per round of NPCs and can be scary.

      You could also take a look at Husk: Wrath of the Swarm by Tricky Troll Games.

        Savage Worlds is all about trappings. And responds well to re-skinnning as well. You can add an ability or two to any creature from the bestiary of any SW game and call it a Giant Bug.

        Why, that's not a shark! (Scribble, scribble as you add Armor to account for the exoskeleton) it's a giant waterbug!
