Cor—Losing Paradise in Nemezis

Nemezis: Cor from GRAmel GamesCome to Cor, a vacation planet fashionable among the elite, lined with beautiful beaches, and being rapidly lost to the invading Horde. In only thirty years, the planet has gone from being paradise to a living nightmare.

New soldiers come to Cor with a life expectancy only shortly longer than the get-aways that were once popular here. Will you last longer? Can you turn the tide?

This new sourcebook for GRAmel’s Nemezis gives you information about fighting on Cor along with hints about cults and secrets of a jungle planet that might not be so innocent after all.

The Inheritors—A Deadlands Hand-Me-Down of Horrors!

The Inheritors PDF Adventure for Deadlands ReloadedLissen up, hombre. There’s bad news and good news. Your dear Aunt Agatha has bought that big farm in the sky, but she’s left that big farm in Kansas to you!

All you gotta’ do is head out to bloody ol’ Kansas—a peaceable place is there ever was one—and sign a few papers. In a week, the place’ll be yours. Well, it’ll be yours if it don’t haunt you to death, if old feuds don’t unearth themselves to claim a few more victims, and if Black River don’t get a hankerin’ for the family plot. Everything should go off without a hitch.

But you might want to bring a few friends, just in case. This is the Weird West, amigo, and the only earth the meek inherit comes in six-foot-deep plots, one stone to a customer.

The Inheritors is a 24-page PDF adventure for Deadlands: Reloaded written by Zach Welhouse and Deadlands Brand Manager Matthew Cutter.

Feel the Dread Gazes of Zunirei of the Thousand Eyes

Zunirei of the Thousand Eyes from Misfit StudiosNot all demons want your soul or to drag you off to the deepest pits of hell! Not at all.

Zunirei of the Thousand Eyes just wants to get to know you better, to know everything there is to know about you. And about everyone else. If she lets the best-hidden secrets of your campaign world slip, revealing them for all to see, is the resulting chaos and disorder really her fault?

Yes, yes it is. And no one—no government, no priesthood, no celestial beings, no grand heroes, and not even other demons—is safe from her desire to share their deepest, darkest secrets. What secrets do your players have, and how far will they go to keep them?

Zunirei of the Thousand Eyes is the latest installment of Misfit Studios‘ Forces of Darkness line for Savage Worlds. Each one highlights a unique opponent—with motivations, allies, and several story seeds—designed to bedevil your players’ characters and to be easy to drop into any game.
