East Texas University and Degrees of Horror Kickstarter Goes Live Next Week!

Degrees of Horror East Texas UniversityAs 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!

We’re bringing you the much-anticipated collegiate setting and Plot-Point Campaign born of 12 to Midnight’s Pinebox, Texas horror setting through a new Kickstarter campaign that starts next week. Look forward to full details then, but you can start dreaming about East Texas University (the setting book for players and GMs alike), Degrees of Horror (the Plot Point Campaign with booster Savage Tales), GM’s screen, custom miniatures, several sets of figure flats, custom dice, and a bonanza of digital stretch goals and add-ons for the rest of the week!

Get ready for the campus recruiting drive. All our stretch goals are going to be based on backers, not on cash. After all, ETU is something of a not-for-prophet institution, and you should bring all your buddies to college with you!

If you decide you’re up to the task, we’ll see you there next week.

Wild Card Creator Updated with More Homebrew Support

Wild Card CreatorWild Card Creator—the Savage Worlds character creation utility that supports all your PDFs—has just released a significant update. Oh, sure, it has new options for auto-downloading updates, support for optional rules in published settings, and even more program settings for you to have more control. But for me the excitement is all about the expanded homebrew support.

A big part of the Savage Worlds mindset is that each setting will have little tweaks to the core rules to really bring that genre to life. We expect you to be using your own house rules, and Wild Card Creator is there to support you. Have campaign rules that apply to everyone? They’ve got you covered. Have a new Edge or Hindrance? No problem. Did you customize the way something works for one particular character alone? Good for you—and that’s supported!

Don’t just listen to me ramble on, check out Wild Card Creator and the latest update today!

[So, I misread something and claimed that Wild Card Creator now supports the recently released Science Fiction Companion and Super Powers Companion (Second Edition). I was wrong. They tell me it's coming soon, but isn't there now. I apologize for any confusion I've cause about that.—Joel]
