Savage Rifts Hits It Big!

We released the Rifts®: The Tomorrow Legion Player’s Guide to backers last week. Holy cow, what a response! We’ve received lots of great feedback. One of our favorites was what Jeffrey Rees had to say about it on the Official Savage Worlds Facebook Group.

There isn’t a projected release date for preorders and PDFs yet. We’ll tell you as soon as there is one, but we’ve got a few things to work on first. Keep reading for more information on that front, and—if you’re a backer—keep reading your copy of the Rifts®: The Tomorrow Legion Player’s Guide.

Pinnacle Site Upgrades Coming Soon!

Pinnacle Web Site UpdatesOur web site, www.peginc.com, will go offline this Wednesday, June 29th 2016, starting at 9:00 A.M. Eastern. Don’t worry, we’re not leaving.

We knew last week’s release of Rifts®: The Tomorrow Legion Player’s Guide to Kickstarter backers might cause some traffic issues, but we were not prepared for the ensuing traffic jam. We’re going to do some tidying up on the infrastructure of the web site and streamline a few things to make everything work better and smoother in the future.

Don’t panic, though. The Pinnacle Web Forums are hosted separately and remain available throughout our maintenance window!


Doomtown Reloaded Rides Into the Sunset

Doomtown ReloadedThe current run of Doomtown Reloaded from Alderac Entertainment Group will come to a close with the release of Blood Moon Rising. It’s not going to simply vanish. Organized play will be supported until at least the end of the year, and there is still stock available.

Both Pinnacle and Alderac have been very happy with this run of Doomtown. We appreciate AEG bringing Deadlands to a whole new contingent of gamers that might not otherwise have visited the Weird West.

What does the future have in store? Straight from Shane: “AEG still has product on the release schedule and plenty of material for people to enjoy. We’ll take a look when all that wraps up and figure out what’s best for this amazing game.”


Savage Worlds Kudos on the Web

Savage Worlds on the WebIt looks like people are talking about us again. Since they’re saying nice things, that’s just fine and dandy with us!

Necessary Evil made the RPG cut for best superhero without a comic. Be sure to read the article for the novel, card game, and other category winners.

And while we always love to see what you are doing with Savage Worlds, it’s also really nice to hear how you work with it. Wyrde Words posted Writing With Savage Worlds, including “From a writing experience, Savage Worlds is a great system to look at for creating basic, believable, characters.”


Rippers Resurrected Available for Everyone!

Rippers Resurrected is free from preorder purgatory. Direct orders are available to everyone, Kickstarter backer or no! Retailers can watch for newsletters from our fulfillment partners Studio 2 Publishing for information on a release date.

Heck, you can even order the Limited Edition Rippers Resurrected hardcover books. For now, anyway. We only make so many. When they’re gone, they’re gone—just like with the Science Fiction Companion!


The Cackler Graphic Novel Preorders Continue

The Cackler Graphic Novel Cover PreviewWait not, want not.* Preorder your copy of the limited edition hardcover of the Cackler Graphic Novel today, and unravel one of Deadlands‘ oldest mysteries.

We’ve been very happy with our experiment taking the Cackler Graphic Novel preorders through Backerkit. There has been one little issue, though. Backerkit had a problem with their automated e-mail updates and many of you received multiple copies. They’re currently working on the issue, and we hope to hear it’s fixed any time now.

* Yes, I know that’s not the actual saying. It’s creative license, and I don’t think mine has expired yet. My creative insurance may have lapsed a little, though.
