Rifts® Tomorrow Legion Player’s Guide Playtest Version – Now Available!

Thanks to YOU and the overwhelming support of our American Armageddon backers, the Revised Playtest Version of the Rifts® Tomorrow Legion Player’s Guide* is now ready for download!

The Rifts® Tomorrow Legion Player’s Guide contains everything you need to make and equip mega-powered characters for the Rifts® Earth setting. Iconic Frameworks load you up with options for well-known concepts (Glitter Boys, Juicers, Ley Line Walkers, Mind Melters), as well as the capacity to craft your own custom ideas. Setting Rules bring home the gonzo, cranked-to-eleven nature of Rifts®, and the gear lists include everything from incredibly powerful weapons and armor to cybernetics to arcana-fueled Techno-Wizard items. Mega Powers bring magic and psionics to super-powered levels, and Hero’s Journey tables flesh out your characters in exciting and fun ways.

Grab the book, play with it, and post your questions, corrections, and suggestions in the Rifts® Feedback Forum. We’ll gather your feedback over the next couple of weeks. We will also release playtest versions of the other revised and updated core books, as well as the new Worldbooks, once we feel we’ve ironed out most of the issues in the Player’s Guide.

This file will be updated periodically as we gather feedback from the community, so we don’t advise printing at this time.

For those wanting to wait for a more final version of the Player’s Guide, please wait to download. Also, if you want to continue to use the Savage Worlds Deluxe version, you will need to contact site.admin@peginc.com. And be aware that this playtest version has the same file name as previous versions, so if you want to hold onto that old Deluxe version, be sure to tweak the file name or it may be overwritten.

*This book requires the Savage Worlds core rules to play.


Doomtown’s Dirty Deeds is Back from the Grave

In the Weird West, you can’t keep a good man (or woman) down, and at long last, Pine Box Entertainment is proud to bring Doomtown’s Dirty Deeds expansion back from the dead!

Out of print for over a year, you can once again relive the struggles in Gomorra with the First Peoples’ Beyond the Veil, Entrepreneurs’ Morgan Stables, and Anarchists’ 108 Worldly Desires outfits.

And since 108 Worldly Desires has been banned from official round-ups, we’ve decided to throw in an extra surprise instead of the usual card back on that outfit: an exclusive alternate art full-bleed for the Anarchists’ 108 Gracious Gifts (originally in the Too Tough to Die expansion)!

Dirty Deeds also features these fan-favorite cards:

Doris Powell
Rico Rodegain
Maza Gang Hideout
Jael’s Guile
Disingenuine Currency Press
Tlaloc’s Furies
Personal Ornithopter
A Slight Modification
…and more!

And for the first time ever, we’ve included a long-requested addition to this reprint bundle: official hand rank cards for quick and easy reference!

Please note that Dirty Deeds is Print on Demand and PDF-only through DriveThruCards, so strike now while the (shootin’) iron is hot!

The Doomtown Tombstone Trilogy Concludes with Hell’s Comin’ With Me

Following the Doomtown Reloaded expansions Too Tough to Die and Out for Blood, the Doomtown Tombstone Trilogy comes to its epic conclusion in Hell’s Comin’ With Me!

Following the latest fiction piece in The Gomorra Dispatch, the story will be influenced by you, the players, on October 26, in Tombstone at the Doomtown Destination Event! Players attending the Jonah’s Alliance Event in Edinburgh on June 30 will decide which major Deadlands Weird West City (City O’Gloom, Shan Fan, Dodge, Lost Angels, or Deadwood) will be the next focus for Pine Box Entertainment as they continue to expand the universe and tell tales through future Doomtown cards and fiction.

As we’ve followed Wendy and Lucy from Gomorra and Tombstone, the next character focus is the outlaw Jonah Essex. In addition, the exciting Twilight Protocol Series will come to a climax in Tombstone as we learn the fate of Valeria Batten and her posse seeking to end the Fourth Ring once and for all.

To learn more about the current story and these upcoming round-ups, visit the Pine Box Entertainment forums, where guides are posted for the Tombstone Event, Edinburgh, Origins Game Fair, and Gen Con. We will conclude the year at PAX Unplugged with the Doomtown: Somethin’ About Some Bullets for a Tombstone epilogue round-up.
