DramaScape Releases To Preserve Our Vows
DramaScape brings you their latest map-and-adventure pack, To Preserve Our Vows.
This full-color 16″ x 10″ tri-level battlemap of an Arabian tower includes overlays for hex grids, square grids, and gridless use. The PDF also contains the VTT (Virtual Table Top) images for online play! Whether you use it for To Preserve Our Vows, the included adventure, or for other Arabian-style games, you’ll get endless hours of enjoyment.
The One-Sheet style adventure includes all the maps, additions, and NPC cards you need to help save the wives of Earl Geoffrey Corwin and Confrere Henri Blanche from the harem of Mesud, the Sultan of Rûm. Are you and your Templars enough to recapture these lost wives from the Sultan’s clutches?
Rifts is Coming for Savage Worlds!
We’re pleased to announce that we will be developing Rifts for Savage Worlds! We’re early in the process now, but Shane* says we anticipate a core setting book in time for Christmas.
Rifts is a classic muti-genre post-apocalypse game with elements of everything from fantasy and mythology on through cyberpunk and mecha, the realization of Kevin Siembieda’s vision of a game with everything for everyone.
“I’m really excited to see what Rifts will look like in the Savage Worlds system,” said Siembieda. “The Savage fans are great folks, and I think Rifts is going to be an amazing amount of fun for them, letting them explore all the possibilities of both the system and the setting.”
Be sure to keep up with the Pinnacle news for more information as it becomes available!
* You know, leaky ol’ Shane who likes to pass out target dates, which just gives me hives. If it weren’t for him, I might never admit to anything! — Joel

Welcome to Lankhmar: City of Thieves!
Danger lurks in every dark alley of the City of Sevenscore Thousand Smokes. Can your merry* band of misfits survive sinister sorcerers, treacherous rogues, mysterious assasins, and—most questionably—each other in your pursuit of money, happiness, and power? Are they really even three different things?
Your wait is ended, and Lankhmar: City of Thieves is now available for immediate PDF purchase and print preorder from the Pinnacle Web Store. Come to Fritz Leiber’s world of swords and sorcery, action and bravado! This all-new book contains details on the world of Nehwon and the City of Lankhmar, including Setting Rules, Savage Tales, monsters and foes, and persons of wide renown—including Fafhrd, the Gray Mouser, and their sorcerous sponsors.
You shouldn’t be caught dead in the Smokes without this book. Then again, you should probably avoid being caught dead anywhere. Knowing where you are and what’s around would probably go a long way to that end—consider grabbing the Lankhmar/Nehwon Poster Maps. One side details Lankhmar itself, center of the world of Nehwon, from the Plaza of Dark Delights to the dankest of docks. The other side brings you the whole world, from the lands of the East to the Steppes of the Mingols, from the Inner Sea to the Parched Mountains, and far more! Not only is the map ready to handle your adventures, but it’s wet, dry, and permanent marker erasable—”leave no trace behind” would be my motto if you could remember I was here…
* Merry is definitely optional. “Surly” and “lethal” are perfectly acceptable choices, among many others.
Deadlands Arcana Unleashed!
Howdy, amigos! Some wranglin’ jobs keep you busy as a herd of homesick heifers, and we’re bringin’ a little of that to you. As part of our ongoing effort to bring all the Deadlands setting rules in line with each other—and better align them with Savage Worlds—we’re rolling out a barrel filled with a few changes* to the Weird West. Namely, the blessed and voodooist Arcane Backgrounds, and Harrowed as they appear in Stone and a Hard Place. You’ll also find about a half dozen bits o’ errata for Stone that didn’t quite make it to the printer.
It’s tough to predict all the ways the Weird West will change “after the Cackler,” but you can incorporate these three new Arcane Backgrounds into your campaign right away. Ain’t no point in waitin’ none, compadre.
The full slate of Harrowed Edges from Stone and a Hard Place, along with some rules to help keep the Harrowed’s players on their toes, is also waiting for you. Being undead just got a whole lot more evil.
* You got me, partner. It is sort of small barrel when you really look at it. But trust me, it’s chock-full of fun…
Shane’s Tour of Italy Continues!
Our fearless founder Shane Hensley continues his travels through the shockingly large community of Italian gaming. Not only is Savage Worlds huge there, it’s even Italian award-winning! Check out Umberto Pignatelli (of Beasts & Barbarians fame) with the RPG of the Year 2014 trophy that Shane finally got to visit.
If you’re in Italy now, you can follow in Shane’s footsteps. Actually, why not meet him face-to-face—that’ll be way less creepy. He’ll be at Torino Comics convention this weekend, so drop on by!
