Deadlands Double Shot Kickstarters Begin Shipping April 17th!

SLIPSTREAM FINAL PPC.inddWe’ve got a lot going on for Easter Monday. Not only are we ending the Double Feature Kickstarters based on two of our favorite Dark Horse Comics™ properties—The Goon™ RPG for Savage Worlds and Fear Agent™ RPG for Savage Worlds—but we start shipping the rewards for our last Double Shot of Kickstarters: Deadlands Classic 20th Anniversary Edition and Deadlands: Good Intentions!

Did you pledge support for either or both of the Deadlands Kickstarters? You may want to check your PledgeManager survey now. If it shows anything other than “Order Complete” at the top left hand corner, your order is not ready to ship! If you have any trouble completing your PledgeManager survey, email site.admin@peginc.com and Jeannine Acevedo, our popular Production Assistant, will help you.

If you placed a pre-order for either book on our website at www.peginc.com, good news! Your order will be shipping soon! We make sure all Kickstarter backers’ orders are in the mail before we begin on the pre-orders. You should receive an email with the tracking number when it ships.

Soon after that, we release for retail sale and distribution. Look for it in your Friendly Local Game Store soon–and ask them if they are a Savage Retailer!

 


Savage Mojo Kickstarting a Full Shaintar Campaign Book!

ShaintarThunderingSkiesOne of the biggest Savage Worlds Licensee settings, Shaintar is rich, detailed, and proud of its tagline “Epic High Fantasy.” Sean Patrick Fannon’s world has always delivered classic fantasy for Savages, but there hasn’t been a “Plot Point, Savage Tales, and all the trimmings” campaign book.

That’s changing—right now, in fact!

Savage Mojo, the publishers of Shaintar, are running the Shaintar: Thundering Skies Kickstarter, and it’s crackling with high voltage energy. The team is funding the production of the campaign book, but also offering reward tiers for participating in the campaign creation, by working with the developers on creating your own villains, allies, or entire plot twists for the main story arc.

Whether you want to have your name on the credits for a premium Savage Worlds campaign book, or whether you just want to secure yourself a copy at a good price (maybe snagging some shiny stretch goals along the way), check out the Shaintar: Thundering Skies Kickstarter today!

Fear Agent™ RPG for Savage Worlds Kickstarter: Now With Un-Stretch Goal PDFs!

FearAgent_cards“I’m not a big sci-fi or military guy, but I do like scrappy fighters on the fringes of society who roll up their sleeves and punch more powerful adversaries in the face, and Fear Agent™ has that in spades.” —Tommy Brownell in his review on The Most Unread Blog on the Internet. Ever. 

Fear Agent™ RPG is a pulp science fiction setting, but one seasoned with a touch of horror, a little bit of military action, and a splash of a good, old-fashioned Western. There’s a strong element of exploration, not only of unknown worlds, but also the strange alien races that make up the United Systems. We got scrappy fighters…in space!

FREE Fear Agent™ RPG One Sheet Adventure: Routine Extermination!

One_SheetSo you want to fight nasty aliens with the Fear Agents, but not sure you’re up to the task? Look no further, friend!

One Sheets for Savage Worlds give a Game Master a short adventure she can read and run that night! The name comes from being able to print the adventure on one sheet of paper (front and back). It includes the setup, backstory, bad guy stats, and some tips on running it.

Routine Extermination gives a glimpse into the world of the Fear Agent™ RPG: gainful employment for your scrappy heroes and a twist worthy of the comics themselves!

The Henrovians’ orbital mining array has been overrun by malfunctioning worker bots, and it’s led to a costly operational shutdown. The aliens are willing to pay nicely to have the heroes eliminate the corrupted equipment.

Of course, the owners might not be telling the team everything …

Q & As: Fear Agent™ RPG and The Goon™ RPG!

KS_Cover_DoubleWe’ve had a lot of love from RPG.net* and #RPGnet chat lately!

Matthew Cutter, Deadlands Brand Manager and author of Eris Beta-V for The Last Parsec talked about working on The Goon™ RPG with Hardboiled GMshoe Dan Davenport. You can read the #RPGnet chat transcript here.

John “Night Train” Goff, author of fan favorites like Deadlands Noir and Deadlands Hell on Earth, talks about his latest project—Fear Agent™ RPG—in the #RPG.net chat on April 12th. Mark your calendars now, faithful Fear Agents!

Our friends at RPG.net also had some questions for the PEG team about the latest Kickstarter Double Feature for Fear Agent™ RPG and The Goon™ RPG.

RPG.net editor Rich Beaulieu grilled the PEG staff about the impact of running two Kickstarters at once, where the art comes from, and how to balance characters like Heath Huston from Fear Agent™ and Goon from The Goon™. Read the RPG.net Q & A here!

*You know they’re not associated, RPG.net and #rpgnet chat, right? Good. 

 

 


A Deadlands Podcast (With Professional Improv Comedians!)

Change and Stone 2The Weird West is a gritty, unforgiving place with horror around every corner and dark shadows creeping over—wait, why are you laughing?

Could it be because you’re listening to the Terrible Warriors podcast of Deadlands: the Adventures of Change and Stone? The Terrible Warriors take on four-part story arcs in a variety of settings using different RPGs.  Deadlands was so much fun they took their hombres to the Wasted West of Hell on Earth, too!

From the GM, Derek Burrow: “Our Deadlands campaign follows the adventures of a pair of Pinkertons tasked with taking down a mysterious crime boss named Harlan Bliss, first in the Weird West, and then 220 years later in the Wasted West after an accident at a Ghost Rock mine sends the boys far into the future.  Played in the style of a TV series, we rely heavily on player-controlled narrative flashbacks and world building…which is great, given that the players are also professional improv comedians.”

Download the Deadlands: the Adventures of Change and Stone series for your listening pleasure, and maybe to brush up on your GM skills. Derek’s had his hands full with a character whose player insisted it be a Stone.
