This is a great time to be a Savage Worlds fan on social media. Our Google+ group has over 4,000 members and is a great place to connect with other Savage Worlds players . Our Facebook group has over 1,800 members, and our own website’s forum is incredibly active and the place to get official answers.
If you’ve not had the chance to reach out across the web and meet your fellow Savage Worlds gamer, take the time to do so soon. You’ll be happy you did, because you’re all a pretty amazing bunch of folks.
Do you remember when we announced the exciting change to the Shaken rules? In addition to updating that wording in the Savage Worlds Deluxe PDF and the Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition PDF, we’ve also updated the Extended Combat example in both books (page 79 and pages 90-91, respectively).
To get the newest, most up-to-date file, just redownload from the Pinnacle Web Store or DriveThruRPG.*
* Depending on where you actually purchased it. I know, that probably is pretty obvious, but sometimes you just have to say these things.
Atomic fire and arcane Armageddon destroyed all that once was, bringing on a world of magic and monsters, cybernetic post-humanism, and infinite potential for both greatness and disaster. This is the terrifying, wonderful world of Rifts®, and it’s gone completely Savage!
Join us as we bring the over-the-top heroes of Rifts® to the popular Savage Worlds system! With everything from Juicers to Ley Line Walkers, Glitter Boys to Mind Melters, demons to war machines, the gonzo, big-guns-and-super-magic world comes to a new generation.
Be sure to check the Savage Rifts® Kickstarter project for full details on the different backer levels, Stretch Goals, and available add-ons. Between the three core books—all scheduled for PDF release a month or so after the Kickstarter—the maps, the GM Screen, and all the extras, there’s a backer level package for everyone!
For more information and input, just check the Internet! Catch the interviews on MythWits, Interrogation Droid, Through Gamer Goggles, The Wild Die, and The SavageCast to hear more about the Savage Rifts® Kickstarter. Or you can see what other people are saying now in the reviews from Tommy Brownell on The Most Unread Blog on the Internet and Christopher Helton on ENWorld.
Join us as we enter a new world—or several—of high adventure with the Savage Rifts® Kickstarter project!
Hey, you. Yes, you, the one that ordered some of the lovely printed products from the Rippers Resurrected Kickstarter but never responded to the BackerKit survey e-mail. We can’t send your stuff to you without an address!
There’s about 30 people that we’ve not heard from yet, and those folks can expect their shipments to be delayed until we know where to ship it. Don’t make yourself sad—check your e-mail and let us know where you are!
Remember, any time you join one of our Kickstarters—like, say, the Savage Rifts® Kickstarter—you’ve got to respond the distribution survey so we know what your current address is for shipping. We want you to get your stuff as soon as possible, but we need your help!
If you’ve gone all “web native,” digital reward backers already have their products (And therefore will not be bothered with a survey).
When you see “limited edition,” we’re not kidding. The Science Fiction Companion Limited Edition is now completely sold out.
Once our Limited Editions are sold out, they’re gone. We don’t reprint those—that’s why we call them “limited,” you know. But you don’t have to panic. We’ll keep the current softcover books in stock, reprinting as we need to.
If you’re a fan of the hardcover Limited Editions, you might want to double-check your library. We’re running low on Limited Edition hardcover versions of the Super Powers Companion (Second Edition), East Texas University, Degrees of Horror, and the Sixth Gun RPG. Don’t let them slip away!
This is the last chance to support the Olympus Inc campaign on IndieGoGo. Their funding campaign closes tonight* at midnight Eastern Time. Be sure to get your piece of the Titan-Olympian power struggle today!
The Olympus Inc campaign hasn’t quite reached its goals yet, but it’s well within the power of the Savage Worlds community to push it over the top today! Before the first campaign was pulled because of a technical issue, you funded it handily—you know you can do it again!
Olympus Inc is a modern setting where the age-old struggle between Titan and Olympian continues as a battle for money as power. It’s published by one of our fan-favorite licensees for their amazing maps, Fabled Environments. For more details, be sure to visit the Olympus Inc campaign on IndieGoGo!
If you’re not familiar with IndieGoGo, it’s remarkably similar to Kickstarter. Many of our European licensees have used it for years because Kickstarter projects had to be based in the US.
* That’s Tuesday, April 26 if you didn’t read this on news release day or happen to be viewing the archives of older news.
The RIFTS® for Savage Worlds Kickstarter project launches next week at noon Eastern! Save the date to catch all the details for the backer levels, rewards, and stretch goals.
Here’s a sneak peek for the budget conscious: digital-only reward levels will be $15 for Players (Player’s Guide only) and $45 for Game Masters (three books, an adventure, and the GM Screen inserts in PDF!). Experience shows many of you like the dead-tree format and all sorts of cool Add-Ons and Stretch Goals…you’ll be the first to see them at noon Eastern next Tuesday, the 26th of April!
If you’re looking for some status updates before the launch of the RIFTS® for Savage Worlds Kickstarter project, this is your lucky day! Read Jodi Black’s progress update on the Pinnacle Forum for more information. TL;DR? Looks like those PDFs will deliver in June.
War touches us all, and the fight is not limited to the trenches. The home front is just as much a part of the Great War as No Man’s Land, and folks not in uniform frequently cross paths with the soldiers.
Weird War I Archetypes: Civilians brings you a cast of characters who aren’t your typical soldier. From resistance fighters to priests, spies, and correspondents, each is presented with full-color art, stat blocks for Novice and Seasoned, and ready-to-use Figure Flats!
Blur the lines of the war and expand the reach of its horror with your own copy of Weird War I Archetypes: Civilians today!
Deadlands is a great setting for gaming, and it’s also a rich world full of fiction possibilities. It’s a big place to explore, and we love to see its territory celebrated and expanded.
Deadlands: Ghost Walkers by Jonathan Maberry is the first Deadlands novel from TOR. It’s such a good start to the line that it’s up for a Scribe Award for Best Original Novel – Speculative! Grab a copy at your local bookstore and join in the fun.
Audio Avatar released Tombstone Tales: The Taxidermist’s Tale. This free audio drama is an adaptation of The Taxidermist’s Tale One Sheet, one of our free short adventures.
So come ’round the fire and listen to some tales of a Weird West and its fanciful, frightening frontiers.
Our own Jodi Black and Clint Black are going to be at PAX East in Boston this weekend displaying their line of Carolina Game Tables. If you’ve not seen these tables for everyday dining and game night, you need to!
Even though they’re not going to be formally representing us at the show, Pinnacle gets into their blood. Drop by their Carolina Game Tables booth (#1232), and you can get a sneak peek at RIFTS® for Savage Worlds!
Do it. Both the tables and the sneak peek are worth a visit!
