This weekend (February 23rd-25th), catch up with Jodi Black (Chief Operations Officer and Managing Editor for Pinnacle Entertainment Group) and Clint Black (Savage Worlds Core Rules Brand Manager) at Con Nooga, Chattanooga’s largest multi-fandom convention held at the 160,000 square foot Chattanooga Convention Center.
While they will be in the exhibit hall promoting their incredible line of tables available through their company, Carolina Game Tables, both will also be happy to answer your Savage Worlds questions and maybe even share a few tidbits about the upcoming Savage Worlds Black!
It really warms our hearts to see so many amazing Savage Worlds Licensee Kickstarters up and running right now. For those looking to spend a little extra pocket money, here are a few current standouts:
In a maelstrom of carnage and destruction worthy of a Mad Max movie, the Devil’s Run setting exploded onto the scene with the high-octane fun of the Devil’s Run: Route 666 board game and subsequent Hell’s Highway expansion, but the thrill of the ride is far from over!
Red Scar Publishing and Marc Langworthy are now set to blow the doors off the events that laid waste to continents, reshaped the global arena, and gave rise to new powers and factions through the engaging medium of a tabletop roleplaying game.
Their current Kickstarter will fund the production of the Devil’s Run Roleplaying Game core book: a lavish, softcover rulebook that will empower both GMs and players alike with the ability to explore the setting in more detail than ever before. Put the pedal to the metal and drive over to their Kickstarter page today to check out all the amazing pledge levels and add-ons.
What if a popular series of stories about a young wizard had been written by H.P. Lovecraft?
As a student at the prestigious H.P. Lovecraft Preparatory Academy, you’ll uncover conspiracies, deal with bullies and uncaring professors, explore dangerous steam tunnels, study for exams, escape from horrible monstrosities that humanity was never meant to see, and try to avoid an extended stay at Arkham Sanitarium. And that’s just orientation week!
Click here to visit the H.P. Lovecraft Preparatory Academy Kickstarter page and help Third Eye Games reach $10,000 to unlock the Savage Worlds version of what’s sure to be a very fun and freaky setting!
From Jason L. Blair (Streets of Bedlam) and FunSizedGames, Kung Fu Animals (Save the World) is a fast, furious, and fun setting for Savage Worlds that gives players the tools to create their own wild universes where semi-human characters become the world’s greatest heroes. If you’re a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, ThunderCats, and Kung Fu Panda, Kung Fu Animals (Save the World) is for you!
As with all Savage Settings, Kung Fu Animals (Save the World) is all about getting you to the table and Kung Fu fightin’ as quickly as possible. To read more about the setting and to see what else Jason and company have in store for it, check out the Kung Fu Animals (Save the World) Kickstarter page.

Every goblin knows to be careful sailing on Basin Bottom’s Sea, especially around the Black Isles. Of course, no one knows what’s actually on the Black Isles as no matter how far you sail you can never seem to reach them—until now. What strange creatures and unearthly terrors await you on the Black Isles?
Terror from the Black Isles is the third book in Rebel Minis’ Dark Hold Goblin Adventures series. The book is fully compatible with the Savage Worlds game system and contains a full adventure, locations, new equipment, creatures, and a brand-new racial template (not saying it’s Duckmen but…)
If you’re looking for an exciting and brand new post-apocalyptic, dystopian, cyberpunk setting for Savage Worlds, then step into the shadowy universe of Citizens Divided, now available from licensee Aegis Studios.
Fifty years from now, the climate has changed and corporate greed has led to economic collapse, class warfare, and widespread unrest. Explore the grungy streets of the crumbling prole villages as a Gutter Punk, fight for the rights and welfare of the weak as an ExoPilot, or bend the internet to your will as a Hacker!
Citizens Divided contains new Professional Edges, as well as rules for Bioware and Cyberware.

Recently, the charming and talented Matt Mercer, resident Dungeon Master on Project Alpha’s wildly popular Critical Role show, joined Big Rick of Game Trade Media for a fun and informative chat about gaming and so much more.
While much of the interview is focused on Critical Role and Dungeons & Dragons, at around the 16-minute mark, Matt reveals that one of his other RPG loves is none other than… Deadlands!
Check out the entire interview for yourself and imagine, if you will, Mr. Mercer pinning on the Marshal’s badge to run a few sessions of Deadlands… Hey, stranger things have happened in the Weird West, pardner!

Calling All Explorers!
From a contemporary case of cold-blooded murder, to desert-dwelling, carnivorous terrors of the Weird West. And from a mystifying modern day investigation to Victorian-era horror in the Far East, the fifth, jam-packed issue of Savage Worlds Explorer has it all, this time featuring all-new material penned by Camdon Wright, Kyle Carty, Sean Tait Bircher, and our very own John Goff:
Two Birds, One Stone by Camdon Wright is a contemporary whodunit using the core rules. The Cowboy Killer is a new Creature Feature for Deadlands: Reloaded by Kyle Carty that introduces a nasty new threat to almost everyone out on the trail. Sean Tait Bircher delivers us a unique adventure for Rippers Resurrected titled Foxed, with the heroes finding themselves assisting the Toyko Lodge in a mission against a truly diabolical threat. And finally, veteran Savage Worlds writer, John Goff (of Deadlands: Noir fame) unleashes A Familiar Problem that casts the players as modern-day investigators working a rather unusual missing persons case.
Click here for more information and to order Issue 5 of Savage Worlds Explorer!
The Savage Worlds Explorer requires a copy of the Savage Worlds core rules and may also require the core books for each setting. Add a few dice, a deck or two of playing cards, a few eager explorers, and let the fun begin!
For the past several weeks, Jeff Regner and his posse have been playing a little Deadlands: Reloaded and then uploading well-produced, dramatic audio summaries of their adventures for everyone to enjoy. We really love what folks do with our Fan License!
While many of the episodes focus on their progress through The Flood (spoilers!), they also include an occasional One-Sheet adventure, as well.
Check out Sunday Nights in the Old West today!
