The Last Parsec Kickstarter Rockets out of the Gates!

The Last Parsec Kickstarter Project The Last Parsec Kickstarter project is off to a stellar start!* Thanks to you, we funded in an hour and are currently a little over 500% funded.

With such a strong start, you’ve already unlocked a number of our Stretch Goals, including the original soundtrack The Jump by fan favorite Harry Mack, the customized Last Parsec Wild Die, and a cargoload of PDF files—custom GM Screen Inserts, the Enigma Equation adventure, digital ship maps, a dozen full-color full-page Last Parsec Character Archetypes, and the full-length adventure Pranac Pursuit!

With so many goals achieved and so many other good ones on the endless horizon, there’s never been a better time to join as a backer or to bring your friends to the party! Futile Position, Tales from the Savage Troll, and Halfway Station are all spreading the word through their blogs. We’re curious to see what sorts of different ways you can come up to spread the word on the The Last Parsec Kickstarter project. If you do something particularly creative, clever, or interesting, please be sure to drop Jodi Black a note and let us know!

If you’re still thinking about it, check out the latest The Last Parsec Wendigo Tale or the totally-free Last Parsec Primer. We know you’ll be back for more.

* You probably deserve an apology for that cheap wordplay. Unfortunately, my apolo-jet printer is out of ink right now. Check back next week.

A local late-night radio show is dishing out some bad advice, and people are eating it up as a midnight snack! Is this a case of a college student drunk on local fame, radio listeners with a total lack of common sense and restraint, or (as is almost always an option here at ETU) something more sinister?

Shock Jock is now available with last week’s Jack’s Back! and all of our other free adventures on our One-Sheets page. Drop on by today for quick and easy prep for most all of our Savage Worlds settings.
