Our Flash Gordon™ Kickstarter Has Saved the Universe!

Last night, all eyes were on Mongo as the Kickstarter for The Savage World of Flash Gordon™ rocketed into history! With 1,027 individual backers, our initial $15,000 goal (which was met in the first hour of the campaign) was crushed by the final total of nearly $110,000! All of our Stretch Goals were met (from form fillable character sheets to miniatures to propaganda prints for your secret rebel hideout) and we really appreciate all your generous support and enthusiasm!

We also want to thank the many blogs, podcasts, and pop culture news sites that helped promote the Kickstarter. Here are just a handful of links in case you want to watch, read, or listen to some of this amazing coverage:

Right now, we’re going to settle in for a bit and finish off the editing and development. Kickstarter will begin processing payments and deliver funds in about two to three weeks and then we can export the data and start delivering the various PDFs to backers. Some will come right away, others will take a little longer as we work through any issues that crop up.

We’ll then send everything to the printer as soon as it’s ready and then if all goes according to plan (assuming Ming and his minions don’t interfere with the process) everything will come back in about four months and we’ll start shipping. And while you wait, be sure to adorn your various electronic devices with our FREE Flash Gordon wallpapers (featuring FLASH-tastic art by Aaron Riley) now available over at DriveThruRPG.

A Doomtown: Reloaded Double-Shot

If you’re ever toe-to-toe with a gang of ornery undead hombres, we recommend reachin’ for the always reliable double-barrel shotty! Guaranteed to get the job done, pardner. (Our apologies ahead of time for the mess!)

This week we’ve unleashed our own double-shot of Doomtown delights certain to up the ante in both your Doomtown: Reloaded and Deadlands games.

First up, there’s the complete (and totally FREE) Doomtown: Reloaded RulebookThis highly-detailed book expands and explains all the game’s rules, including card types, actions, and how to gently convince your rivals into doing things your way. The disagreeable sorts can take a long dirt nap in Boot Hill instead. Doomtown: Reloaded is the follow-up game to the best-selling and award-winning Doomtown card game. This book requires the Doomtown: Reloaded base set to play.

For our Deadlands players out there, we present the Doomtown: Reloaded Deadlands RPG Conversion Book for just $5.99. Want to add some of Doomtown: Reloaded’s most notorious scoundrels to your Deadlands roleplaying game? This pint-sized pamphlet of paranoia contains some of the good, the bad, and the incredibly ugly. You’ll also find game information for several relics as well, all statted up and ready to cause plenty of mischief and mayhem.

The Deadlands RPG Conversion Book contains over 20 character, creature, and relic descriptions from the Doomtown: Reloaded card game for the Deadlands RPG. It requires that game to play, and the Savage Worlds core rules.
