The Sixth Gun Kickstarter Launches Next Week!

The Sixth Gun KickstarterSix pistols of otherworldly power surfaced in the darkest days of the Civil War. The First strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads the flames of Perdition. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. The Sixth holds the key to rewriting the world. And, until only recently, the Sixth gun was lost.

Join us next Tuesday at noon on Kickstarter as we bring the world of The Sixth Gun to Savage Worlds from the comic series by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt. Heck, if you want to literally join us, be sure to check out the True Fan of the Sixth Gun backer reward—all the stuff plus you get to play in a game at Gen Con Indy 2015 GMed by Cullen Bunn with Scott Woodard at the table–and Brian Hurtt will doodle something in your Sixth Gun RPG book! There’s even more than that, but we gotta’ have some surprises for next week.

Well, be sure to check it out when the Sixth Gun Kickstarter is up next Tuesday, anyway. They’ll go fast, amigo…

The Stone and a Hard Place PDF Combat Map Set I brings you a whole new town for your Western games. You get your own church, a jail, the sheriff’s office, a hotel, and a nice little house with a barn. You can scale and print what you want, create a town, or churn out a whole string of ’em! It’s your call.

Hell on Earth Wasteland Combat MapsThe Hell on Earth Wasteland PDF Combat Map Set gives you two new desert wasteland terrains with rocky spires. Fill in the desolation of that gaming table with the proper desolation of the Wasted West! While you’re at that particular radioactive itch, remember the Hell on Earth book bundles and minis bundles to scratch it with a little less scratch…

That might be all for now, but it ain’t all, my friends. Keep watching for more maps, maybe even Hell on Earth: Wasteland Highway Combat Map Sets with a full set of car figure flats. You know, just maybe.

Savage Thunderscape Kickstarter to Bring Aden to Savage Worlds

Savage Thunderscape Kickstarter ProjectThe World of Aden is struggling for survival against a seemingly invincible foe. The golden age of magic and technology has been darkened by an unexplained eclipse and the horrors that crawled out of it across the Known Lands. The Darkfall has changed the face of the world forever. Can you turn the tide of shadow and save Aden from the Nocturnal horde?

Savage Thunderscape is the realization of a long roleplaying journey. Kyoudai Games brought Thunderscape back to desktop gaming for Pathfinder and is now happy to bring it, fully-formed to Savage Worlds. And that seems fitting, since the world was originally developed by Shane Hensley back in the 1990s!

Be sure to check out the Savage Thunderscape Kickstarter project today for full details on backer rewards and available products, and help bring a rich new setting to Savage Worlds!

Clint Black on the New Shaken Rule on Savage Bloggers Network

Savage Bloggers NetworkClint Black joined Kristian Serrano of Savage Bloggers Network to answer questions about our recent change to the Shaken rules. Not only did Clint offer insight into the thought process of the change as well as the mechanics of updating the rules, he also fielded questions from additional guest Ron Blessing and proved that anyone can have a comically long run of technical difficulties. Both the discussion and Clint’s ability to mime in a muted video window are worth your time!
