Hop Aboard DramaScape’s Valkyrie Smuggling Ship

DramaScape's Valkyrie Smuggling ShipThe Valkyrie Smuggling Ship was trying to sneak past your view, but your finely-tuned sensors have detected DramaScape’s latest space ship map!

The Valkyrie includes four 360-degree panoramic views of the bridge, living quarters, mess hall, and cargo areas. You’ll also get descriptions and stats for the crew members, antagonists for the ship, and a handful of plot hooks to spice up your lives in space.

Fabricated Dreams, a Wendigo Tale of The Last ParsecCaptain Nick Garron has a new ship, new kalian, and a few new other things to worry about since we last saw him in the Wendigo Tale: The Searchers. In Fabricated Dreams, the crew discovers a wonder both ancient and new at the same time. Is the dusty planet as empty as it seems? And if it is, who—or what—keeps building the strange structures on its surface?

Fabricated Dreams joins Michael Conn’s How the Life Goes On, Christine Thompson’s Echoes, John Wick’s A Clear Understanding of Honor, Shane Hensley’s  The Searchers, and Cameron Dayton’s Scrapped.

Space is big and inviting. Roll around in it with your own Last Parsec Wendigo Tales!

Last Week of the Last Parsec Kickstarter

The Last Parsec Kickstarter ProjectThere’s about a week left on The Last Parsec Kickstarter project, but we’re not going quietly into that good, long, cold night!

Tell your friends, and we’ll see just how far we can push the boundaries of outer space!

Be sure to keep an eye out for more Last Parsec news and freebies (like the JumpCorp poster). Remember, in space, no one can hear you scream “I can’t believe I missed it!”—be sure to visit The Last Parsec Kickstarter while you still can.

Happy Homecoming with More ETU Freebies!

Brewhaha One Sheet for East Texas UniversitySomething’s off about campus-favorite beer Brazen Hussy. Is there something wrong with the equipment? Is the owner’s new ex-wife angry enough over a divorce more bitter than a handful of hops to commit sabotage? Is the health department right about their concerns of drugged dregs? Or is there something more sinister at work on these spirited suds?

You and your classmates can get to the root of the problem, save a business, and maybe score some free six-packs in Brewhaha, our newest One-Sheet for East Texas University! And don’t forget our other great ETU One-Sheets, Shock Jock and Jack’s Back, which can easily be threaded with Brewhaha.

But to celebrate this festive time on college campuses everywhere, we’re also giving you a whole campus of your very own. Heck, we’ll even throw in a town! Download your free poster-sized ETU Campus Map and Map of Pinebox, Texas now. Be sure to check out all the free downloads for ETU (available at the right of the East Texas University page).

Pinnacle Coming to Aethercon, RinCon, Great Falls, and MACE!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouLooking for the convention-sized fun of meeting the Pinnacle crowd without the travel? Join us this weekend for a roundtable discussion with the creators from Pinnacle Entertainment Group* Saturday, October 11, 2:00 pm ET. This event is being sponsored by Aethercon (coming in November) and will be available later as a podcast episode if you miss it live.

Not quite willing to forgo the fun of meeting us face-to-face? You can catch John Goff at the Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous in Great Falls, Montana. This is your chance to talk to John away from the rest of us, where he might be more willing to spill secrets and dish the juicy gossip! Don’t miss it.

If you’re a little more southerly this weekend, drop by RinCon in Tucson, Arizona. You can catch Pinnacle founder, president, and jefe-muy-mucho** Shane Hensley. In fact, he’s a featured RinCon Guest of Honor! If you’re in the area, drop by and say “Hi.”

And in the not-as-far-as-it-once-was future, you can find a bunch of us at MACE in Charlotte, North Carolina, November 7-9. But there’ll be more on that later.***

* Yes, that’s us, but who doesn’t like to talk about themselves in the third person now and again? “Not he,” says I!
** And a shout goes out to my Spanish teachers, who are probably now embarrassed to be associated with me.
*** I would like to dedicate this paragraph of two lonely sentences that both start with conjunctions to all my old English teachers who would shake their heads in disappointment if they were reading right now. To you! — Joel
