Lankhmar: Well-Met in RPG.net
Lankhmar is getting good reviews, at least from Cedric Chin of RPG.net. Both his review of Lankhmar: City of Thieves and his review of Lankhmar: Savage Tales of the Thieves’ Guild rate the products a 4 out of 5 stars. We presume the missing star was stolen in a dimly-lit alley—it is, after all, Lanhkmar…
Swing by Lankhmar yourself sometime. Let’s see how you like it!
Join John Goff at PAX Prime This Weekend
Our own John Goff will be at PAX Prime in Seattle on Sunday, August 30. He’ll be signing at the Uncle’s Games booth from 4:00-5:00 pm. He’ll even be surrounded by copies of some of his (and our) really cool stuff, including Deadlands Noir, Leviathan, Grim Prairie Trails, and the Hell on Earth Companion.
If nothing else, please drop by so he doesn’t have too much time on his hands. That is, after all, how we got the Night Train adventures. For all your characters’ sakes, keep him occupied!
LiveSheet: Bring Characters to Life on Your iPad

Did we mention that Alexander is apparently a very nice man? That’s right, he’s released it for free. I suspect you still have to provide your own iPad, though. There are limits.

Lankhmar #SavageHaiku Contest Winner Announced!
From several fabulous entries, we’ve selected the winner of our #SavageHaiku contest for Lankhmar. After much debate, the victory goes to world-renowned alpaca breeder* Jeff Prather of Louisville, Kentucky, the Haiku Capital of the World.**
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for future contests, because everyone wins. Jeff gets his $50 credit to the Pinnacle Web Store, and you get to enjoy the following haiku!
I thought we were friends,
Now, your blade protrudes from me.
Black toga hides blood.
* To the best of my knowledge, this is totally untrue. In fact, I made it up as I was typing.
** Also totally untrue, as far as I know. I may have an issue.
Last Week to Back Enascentia!
Don’t miss your chance to back the Enascentia Kickstarter that closes in just a few days!
They’ve met their funding goals, so we can already look forward to this exciting new fantasy setting coming to Savage Worlds from the Italian-language gaming scene. With your support and a last-minute rally, who knows how many late-game stretch goals they can achieve? Backers have already “unveiled” an adventure by Enascentia author Edoardo Dalla Via, and the next stretch goal adventures are penned by Umberto Pignatelli (Beasts & Barbarians), Sean Fannon (Savage Rifts, Shaintar), and Darren Pearce (Doctor Who RPG, Savage Suzerain).
Be sure to check out the Enascentia Kickstarter for full details on backer rewards and stretch goals, and be sure to tell all your friends, too!
Geek Watch One Interview with Shane Hensley
Kylan and Ken of Geek Watch One interviewed our own Shane Hensley at Get Con. Rather than seal the interview deep in a vault, they bundled it with several other pieces from Gen Con into one massive convention episode: Straight Outta GenCon!
If you want to go straight to Shane, he’s at the 111:30 mark. No, that’s really three ones—there’s a lot of Gen Con, you know! But don’t just listen to Shane, catch the whole thing. After all, you wouldn’t eat just the peanuts from your Peanut M&Ms, would you?
