Pack your bags, folks, because it’s time to head off to college in lovely Pinebox, Texas! East Texas University is definitely a place where you can find your place in the world—sharing a dorm room with someone who died from a cursed towel in the locker room.
The eagerly-awaited college horror setting and Plot-Point Campaign born of 12 to Midnight’s Pinebox, Texas comes to life as a full-fledged Pinnacle product through the new ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter campaign. East Texas University is the main setting book with everything players and GMs alike need to start telling their own ETU stories. Degrees of Horror brings you a full Plot Point Campaign with booster Savage Tales to take your cohort through a full four years college, presuming you (literally) survive being a freshman.
But just as with college, the books aren’t the whole story of the Kickstarter. There’s the GM’s screen, custom miniatures, several sets of figure flats, custom dice, and a bonanza of digital stretch goals and add-ons! Be sure to check out the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter campaign for the full details and reserve a spot today.
Speaking of stretch goals, don’t forget that the college experience is also about making new friends (sometimes literally, in the basement of the biology building), and the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter is no different. All of our stretch goals are based on backers, not on cash. The bigger the crew you bring to campus, the bigger the campus is for your crew!
What are you waiting for? Take a gander at the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter and put your eyes on the ETU campus. Be careful, though, because campus may have its eye on you…
Yukon Terror is the newly released addition to the Deadlands Tall Tales stable. Your group of strangers is braving the elements in an Alaskan cabin at the edge of civilization—a place where the cold and snow have hidden abominations from the eyes of men, a place where the abominations may walk as men themselves! As the storm outside rages on, you have to decide which is easier—surviving the elements or surviving the shelter.
Deadlands Tall Tales is a series of zero-prep, GM-less narrative games set in the Deadlands universe, powered by the Protocol Games Series. Yukon Terror joins Doctor Tregan’s Mechanical Wonders and Broken Hearts (the free introductory adventure).

As high school comes to a close across the U.S., college excitement builds. This is the time when young men and women find out what they’re really made of as they pursue their dreams. And try to forget about watching their classmate get sucked into a library book. And avoid the angry ghost in the stairwell. And evade the creature prowling around the campus shadows.
East Texas University, in the heart of Pinebox, Texas, offers several fully-accredited degrees, as well as lurking dread, creeping horror, and the constant need to save the world from what lies beneath. Will you cut class, or will class cut you? Go Ravens!
