The Last Parsec Kickstarter is Now Live!

The Last Parsec Kickstarter ProjectJoin us on a journey of exploration to the stars! As of 9:23 Pacific,* The Last Parsec Kickstarter project is live, and you can help us bring the brilliant future of man in space to your tabletop.

Faster-than-light travel has finally allowed humanity to spread beyond its lonely corner of the Milky Way. Explorers found millions of star systems, strange planets, and exotic alien races in the cold depths of space. Centuries later, trade, technology, and business thrive in the Known Worlds.

Live in an unparalleled age of cutting edge science, limitless frontiers, and hints of the mysteries of the universe itself. Travel beyond the familiar and find The Last Parsec.

For more details on The Last Parsec, the various reward levels, and the awesome product lineup—including three books, custom Bennies and minis, maps, and the double Adventure Deck—be sure to visit The Last Parsec Kickstarter project today!

For more about the behind-the-scenes action, check out the first Last Parsec Designer’s Diary. For a better feel for the setting, be sure to check out Wendigo Tales Season 3 (or read the news item below…).

* Shane has a special place in his heart for 9:23 and 9/23. It’s his birthday. Have a piece of cake in his honor. If you have space cake, so much the better!

The Last Parsec: ScrappedThe Last Parsec: The SearchersThe Last Parsec: A Clear Understanding of HonorCaptain Morham is on a disabled starship, many of his crew dead. He has no power, no weapons, and no shields. He is in trouble deeper than the space he’s stranded in. The strange alien species that has attacked him has all the cards, except one. Can his clear understanding of alien honor save his otherwise doomed JumpCorp team?

Get the third Wendigo Tales story for The Last Parsec, fresh from the pixel printers today! John Wick’s story joins Shane Hensley’s  The Searchers. and Cameron Dayton’s Scrapped in Wendigo Tales Season 3. Some even say it’s the best of the Wendigo Tale ever, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Why are you still hanging out here on earth? Take to the stars today!

The Hits Keep Comin’ with Shock Jock for ETU!

Did you think we were done with our Kickstarter-promised One-Sheets for East Texas University? Hardly!

A local late-night radio show is dishing out some bad advice, and people are eating it up as a midnight snack! Is this a case of a college student drunk on local fame, radio listeners with a total lack of common sense and restraint, or (as is almost always an option here at ETU) something more sinister?

Shock Jock is now available with last week’s Jack’s Back! and all of our other free adventures on our One-Sheets page. Drop on by today for quick and easy prep for most all of our Savage Worlds settings.

Wendigo Tales: Season 3—The Last Parsec

The Last Parsec: ScrappedThe Last Parsec: The SearchersWant to learn about The Last Parsec before the Kickstarter begins? Our own Shane Hensley brings you The Searchers. Nick Garron got his crew off the Niccolo before it cracked apart, but there was a cost to having only one escape pod. The searchers are trapped on a hot jungle planet with a terrible secret and no way home. Will they be torn apart, brought together, or something else that even the team’s psychic didn’t see coming?

Cameron Dayton (writer and story developer, including Blizzard Entertainment and Chair Entertainment) shines a light on space salvage operations in Scrapped. Captain Cherokee Meier has hit the mother lode, an entire fleet of derelict ships. As the first buzzards to the kill, his crew is sitting pretty, but there are other problems at hand. Can the crew keep it together even as they tear the fleet apart?

More for ETU: Jack’s Back One Sheet and Spanish Character Sheets

Jack's Back One Sheet for ETURemember when we promised that we’d be releasing some more One-Sheets for East Texas University? We don’t kid around with Kickstarter commitments like that, and it’s time for the latest installment—Jack’s Back! Jack Brown returns to ETU after a few decades off. This time is going to be different, though—and different it is! But something strange is going on in his dorm, and it’s up to you to set things right.

What with East Texas University being so close to the border and all, it only seems fair to offer a Spanish ETU Character Sheet! It’s always great to see our friends in gaming using the Free Fan License to not only make wonderful things for your Savage Worlds games, but to share them with others. You folks really are the best!

Deadlands Gets Bigger at Visionary Comics!

Deadlands in Visionary ComicsThe wide open plains of Deadlands’ Weird West are gettin’ even wider over at Visionary Comics. The folks at Visionary are nearly twice as many as they once were, with a near-doubling of their staff, and they’ve also added Jeff Mariotte (comic writer and author) and our own Shane Hensley (creator of Deadlands) to the team, expanding Deadlands in comics and prose alike!

Visionary will be working with IDW Publishing to publish their first trade, Dead Man’s Hand, collecting the Deadlands one-shots published by Visionary and Image Comics. These collect all of the “All-Star Westerns” into one volume.

There will also be a new line of novels published by Tor Books coming later next year. The first three books will be by New York Times best-selling authors Jonathan Maberry, Seanan McGuire, and Jeff Mariotte. Release dates are not available yet, but production is hummin’ right along!

And even with all that going on, Deadlands is still in active development for a live-action TV series—more details to come as we have them available.

It’s high time you join us on the High Plains!
