Pinnacle is Proud to Support “Olympic” GMing

Olympic GMing Event in IsraelWe’re always happy to see people approach gaming with enthusiasm, and it doesn’t get much more enthusiastic than the recent Olympic GMing event in Israel. We know it happened, because there are pictures!

This competitive GMing expands on the Iron GM concept, with varying formats and events. In the standard event, GMs get one hour to prepare a short adventure according to the event’s theme (known in advance) and incorporating three surprise elements (not known in advance at all).

We were happy to be able to provide prize support, even if we weren’t able to hop on over in person. What’s that saying about next year…

More Hell on Earth Coming Next Week

The Worms' Turn for Hell on EarthHell on Earth CompanionIs your Wasted West gettin’ too small? Are you hankerin’ for more? Your time is comin’, partner, and this time it’s in a good way. Like we said earlier this month, you’ll be seeing the Hell on Earth Reloaded Companion and The Worms’ Turn both come available for preorders (or immediate PDF purchases) this month, but when would be a surprise. It’s not happened yet, and it’s not happening today. Since there’s only one week of October left, you might not be as surprised as possible when they’re both available next week!

The Hell on Earth Companion gives your scav what she needs to be an honest-to-Oppenheimer cyborg and also adds two new Arcane Backgrounds—Librarian and Witch! If you’re not lookin’ for more weird, just more BOOM, there’s plenty of guns and gear, details of more dangers of the irradiated future and vehicle combat, and a chance to talk to a lonely AI in the sky…

Hell on Earth: The Worms’ Turn is set in the aftermath of the massive battle called The Harvest. Sure you banished the Reckoners, but what about those other, older terrors you didn’t realize they were keeping in check? The Worms’ Turn updates the events of the Wasted West, contains several Savage Tales ready to weave into your story, and has a full-length Plot-Point Campaign all set to go!

So be sure to tune in here next week for the biggest expansion Hell on Earth: Reloaded’s seen since all those ghost rock bombs went off! You’ll also get a shot at discounted bundle options, but their half-life will probably be way less than most of what you’re used to in the Wasted West.

Pinnacle Supports LORTNation and Girls in STEM

Ladies of the Round Table LORTCrate Charity RaffleLORTNation.com (for Ladies of the Round Table) is a self-styled group of “Geeks for Equality.” What makes them a little different is their focus on encouraging girls into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) studies.

Even if you’re not particularly keen on equality, you should still care. Current projections suggest that we’ll run out of qualified folks who can finish the development of your favorite video games if we don’t expand the role of women in STEM studies! (Sure, that technical gap also applies to people who can build bridges and develop vaccines, but we all know what really matters, right?)

Oh, and you can win a lot of cool stuff, too. Their LORTCrate Raffle will give a box of over $250 worth of gaming goodness—including materials from Pinnacle—to one lucky fan on November 14. You can enter for as little as $5, and all proceeds go directly to the Ladies of the Round Table STEM Education Scholarship Fund. It’s a great deal for a great cause, and we’re happy to support it.

And speaking of women in gaming, they’ve also got an interview with our own Jodi Black about her role in gaming and The Last Parsec Kickstarter project available right now. I never realized we had a role model right here on staff, so be sure to check it out today!
