Cowboy Bebop: Savage Worlds

The Mysterious Letter

Silas Ashford lays back in his bed, inside his tiny room on the Two-Step. In his hand, he holds a a single piece of paper, delivered to him with no name of sender, no return address, and no answers.

Toby R. Schmidt.


“What the hell does this even mean?” he mutters to himself. In the back of his mind, a little voice tells him that maybe he already knows.

One Constellation Down...

After Scorpio’s fighter, the Deathstalker, crashed into the deck of the large shipping vessel, a firefight ensued between the Constellation, a handful of his minions, and the bounty hunters. The cowboys won the fight, but Scorpio disappeared below decks.

Aided by Margot Tureskee, a bounty hunter that specializes in computer hacking, the cowboys searched the freighter, finding (and tear-gassing) the rest of the ships crew, but not Scorpio.

Outside, Silas and Aiden notice that the tugboat, manned by Steve Michaels and Melody Santiva, was beginning to pull away and not responding to radio summons. Deducing that Scorpio had most likely escaped onto the tugboat, the bounty hunters gave chase.

Eventually, the crew caught up with the tugboat and boarded it, only to find Scorpio holding a large knife to Melody’s throat. Realizing they were in a deadlock, Margot fired a flash-bang from her slingshot and temporarily stunned Scorpio, giving the cowboys the opportunity they needed to rescue Melody and defeat Scorpio, once and for all.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.

Sting Operation: Scorpio

The bounty hunters found themselves working on an off-the-books sting operation, in an attempt to capture a man known only as “Scorpio,” one of the lieutenants for the shadow-terrorist organization, Zodiac.

Working with Aiden’s contact, Steve, Steve’s associate, Margot, and Meiling Wu, they split off into three groups: Wu, Apollo, Aiden, and McKnight; Silas and Nate; and Steve and Margot.

McKnight, Apollo, Aiden, and Wu took a small fishing boat to confront Scorpio and retrieve his hostage, Melody Santiva. Silas and Nate waited on shore in their fighters to serve as backup. Steve and Margot remained a mile away from Scorpio’s location on a small tugboat, running surveillance.

Upon reaching the ship, Wu climbed aboard Scorpio’s large shipping freighter, and the bounty hunters found that all of their communications were scrambled between each other and the tugboat. Deciding that something was wrong, Aiden, Apollo, and McKnight climbed up the freighter’s anchor and into the ship.

Meanwhile, noting that something was wrong, Silas and Nate took off towards the tugboat to see what was wrong with the communications. They met up with Steve, who told them to head to the freighter and assist the others. Upon reaching the freighter, Silas mopped up several of Scorpio’s soldiers, and Nate rescued Meiling Wu and Melody Santiva, flying Santiva off to the tugboat and out of harm’s way.

Inside of the ship, the three bounty hunters encountered one of Scorpio’s minions and killed him, though McKnight was injured in the fighting. McKnight stayed behind to patch up his wound, while Apollo and Aiden moved on to the engine room and put it out of commission.

While McKnight bandaged himself up, Scorpio tied him up with his chain and used him as a human shield when he reached the deck of the ship, preventing Silas from opening fire.

Eventually, Apollo and Aiden reached the deck of the ship, and Scorpio managed to make his way to one of the large metal shipping containers. The bounty hunters opened fire on the container, but Scorpio still managed to fly his personal fighter out of the container.

Unfortunately for Scorpio, the plasma cannon on his fighter wasn’t accurate enough to hit Silas’s fighter, and the battle between ships was quickly decided, with Scorpio crashing into the deck of the ocean freighter.

Surrounding Scorpio’s ship, the Deathstalker, it looked like the bounty hunters were finally about to capture their bounty, when suddenly one of the shipping containers aboard the freighter exploded…
