Pinnacle Staffers Secretly Infiltrate Dragon Con and TactiCon!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouShhh…don’t tell anyone. Several of the crew from Pinnacle Entertainment are going to be smuggled into conventions this weekend, but not necessarily as Pinnacle people.*

Our own Jodi Black and Clint Black will be at Dragon Con this weekend. Look for them at their Carolina Game Tables booth on the 3rd floor of AmericasMart Building 2.**

Our own Sean Patrick Fannon will be embedded at Tacticon this weekend, but you’ll have to check for him with the Evil Beagle*** crowd. Heck, you can probably just listen for him, actually.

 

* Yes, I know that sounds like some creepy low-budget horror movie set in the mountains where innocent RPG writers slowly become cannibals from a weird altitude-initiated disease and start hunting down hikers and skiers like winter-sport bacon-on-the-hoof. But, no, that’s not what we’re talking about. I promise. But if you happen to be out hiking or skiing this weekend, feel free to go slower so I have a chance at lunch, eh?

** There are actually four entire floors of Exhibit Hall down there this year. Take a map and a friend.

*** Yes, there’s a “who let the dogs out” joke to be made here. No, I’m not going to do it. Honest. See.


Enascentia Released!

Enascentia Game Masters Guide Enascentia Players GuideCome to a world where heroes are made, not born—just like everyone else! It’s a fantasy world like no other, with several unique races and factions—and characters that just might live forever.

Brought to you by GG Studio, who translate several of our Savage Worlds settings into Italian, the Enascentia Player’s Guide and the Enascentia Game Master’s Guide are the result of their successful Kickstarter to bring their original fantasy world to English.

Should you buy this because it makes it more likelier that other great non-English settings will come to English in the future? Probably. Should you buy this to help support the globalization of our intellectual community? Probably. Should you buy this because the world is amazing, the art is beautiful, and it looks overall awesome? Most definitely!


New Low Life Kickstarter—Holy Crap: The Great Sects Change Operation!

Holy Crap Kickstarter ProjectThe world has been brought low—incredibly low. But there are still those, uh, things that look to a higher power, and this book is for all those faithful evolved snack cakes, walking garbage piles, and croaches out there that still believe.

Holy Crap: The Great Sects Change Operation is a hardcover, full-color, lavishly-illustrated sourcebook for Andy Hopp’s endearingly bizarre Low Life setting for Savage Worlds. If you’re not familiar with this peculiarly post-apocalyptic (many times over) world, check out his 113-page free preview! Seriously, the man’s a giver.

Like all Low Life books, Holy Crap is written from the point of view of an actual denizen of Oith. Unlike all the other Low Life books, it explores over sixty religions, cults, sects, and creeds as well as dozens of new monsters, Edges, Hindrances, and other exciting jazz. All the rules and game info are in the appendices at the end so you don’t even have to play the game to enjoy the book.

All of Andy’s work is truly something you have to see to believe. And you definitely want to see the available rewards for the Holy Crap Kickstarter! Believe it!
