Aegis Studios debuts their first release for Savage Worlds—Contagion.
The world of Contagion is a dark and terrifying place, but no different on the surface than the world you and I live in. Despite humanity’s vast ignorance, horrors are everywhere. Angels, demons, gods, and Hellspawn war in the shadows. Clergy and Slayers rise from the human flock to protect their brethren and work God’s will. Magi and Witches wield powerful magics in their pursuit of enlightenment.
There’s a war in the shadows. Choose a side. Get Contagion.
That’s right, friends and neighbors, the walls between the Weird West as it was and the Weird West as it has become are tumbling down. The Deadlands Conversion Guide is now available as a free PDF download to help you bring your critters and characters from Classic into Reloaded or even vice versa.*
While you’re at it, you might want to grab a freshly updated version of the Good Intentions PDF and the totally free Good Intentions Player’s Guide PDF (with all of the good player stuff from the front of the book, and none of the spoilers from the back).
I reckon that’s enough to get you on down the trail for the week, so head on out to whichever Weird West floats your Maze Runner!
* Watch out, though. Most of the Blessed aren’t fond of vice in either system, and I doubt they’re like to put up with much versa, either.
Rifts® for Savage Worlds opens up a whole new world of possibilities—actually, several of them! Let us help you get started with the A Fine Solution series.
The A Fine Solution series is a collection of five One Sheet™ adventures that you can use like a Plot Point Campaign. Just weave these adventures into your ongoing game or let them serve as the backbone for your campaign, and you’re good to go.
But a campaign skeleton without structure is simply a pile of bones. Be sure to introduce them in the right order and enjoy as your players discover the ongoing machinations:
We did mention that these, like all our One Sheet™ adventures, are totally free, right? I thought you’d like that. Now go play!
Are you wondering what’s really in the Deadlands Classic 20th Anniversary Edition or want to see if your opinions line up with someone elses? Go check out Hours Without Sleep’s review.
What lies beneath the baked and dusty surface of the Weird West? Sometimes, with just a little scratching, you get a gusher that blackens the sky—and that’s what’s happenin’ today, partner!
- Deadlands Classic 20th Anniversary Edition is now available on DTRPG as well as direct from Pinnacle’s Web Store. If you like to keep all your online PDF purchases in one place or you’ve got a gift certificate or credit, you can still get the awesome revival of Deadlands Classic that you really want.
- Good Intentions, the Plot Point Campaign that rounds out the stories of the Servitors and focuses on the main mad man, Doctor Darius Hellstromme, has a big week! We’ve updated the files for the Good Intentions PDF with some minor tweaks, released the totally free Good Intentions Player’s Guide PDF, and added Good Intentions to DriveThru RPG as well as the Pinnacle Web Store!
- Get ready for more excitement than you might be able to handle with three brand new adventures for Deadlands! Sawed ‘Em in Gomorra mixes your characters into the conspiracies surrounding Hellstromme’s entry into the augmentation trade and their desire for Professor Perriwinkle’s secrets from the Collegium. Land Beyond the Busted Doorframe pits your posse against time and a Wasatch Rail team to master the enigma of the Huntington Ruins. The Twilight Protocol puts your cowpokes in the cooperative crossfire of the Rangers and the Pinkertons as almost everyone tries to foil one of Hellstromme’s plots in a now-darker Weird West.
- And here’s one for your ears—a new soundtrack for Deadlands’ City o’ Gloom! Blood, Sweat, and Gears brings fan favorite composer Harry Mack back to the studios to set your mood for Mad Science Central!
Whew. When’s that day of rest, again, amigo?
Palladium’s magazine, the Rifter, takes a look at the new Rifts® for Savage Worlds.
Get a perspective on the project from the people who were there when the Rifts first opened!
Deadlands and MACE are both celebrating 20 years! Our own Shane, Jodi, Clint, and Teller will be there, as well as licensees Fabled Environments and Pirate Press. Don’t miss the big Savage Saturday Night gaming event, with GMs sponsored by Beautiful Brains and Carolina Game Tables! If you can make it to Charlotte this weekend, you should make it to MACE!
For those of you in a more northerly/midwest sort of mood, go to Con on the Cob! It’s also this weekend, just in Richfield, Ohio, instead of down in North Carolina! You’ll have the chance to see a one-of-a-kind gaming convention, meet our own Sean Patrick Fannon and witness his premiere of three Savage Worlds of Rifts® games (Fire on the Mountain, Collateral Damage, and From Beyond), and even attend the Savage Saturday Bar (think Savage Saturday Night as a party instead of gaming).
Wherever you are, have a good time, stay safe, and get some gaming in!
War is never pretty. What it stirs up is never pretty. When the blood, evil, and madness are stoked by a jungle that’s always been happy to swallow humanity as a snack, it gets even worse. Check out this great Tour of Darkness Game Play Report to see just how it goes.
Go further back in time and deeper in the trenches with Weird War I. Check out this teaser trailer for an upcoming actual play recording!
But war isn’t a game for just professionals. Listen to this two-hour actual play of a homebrew robotic post-apocalypse Savage Worlds game for a taste of what madness can be cooked up in an innocent home.
