The Sixth Gun Comes to Kickstarter!
The Sixth Gun RPG is now available on Kickstarter. Join the story of six pistols of otherworldly power that surfaced in the darkest days of the Civil War. Can you guide their destiny? Can you control the Sixth Gun?
From the comic series by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt, The Sixth Gun comic series comes to Savage Worlds, bringing mysterious weapons with powers that should not be in the hands of man. Fire, disease, and eternal life ride tonight on someone’s shootin’ hip, and there’s only worse to come.
Be sure to check out The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter project for complete details on backer levels and rewards. Don’t be dawdlin’, neither! The True Fan of the Sixth Gun backer reward is likely to vanish pretty quick—you get all the stuff plus you get to play in a game at Gen Con Indy 2015 GMed by Cullen Bunn with Scott Woodard plus Brian Hurtt will doodle something in your Sixth Gun RPG book!
There’s a place for everyone at the table, amigo, even if you come late to the party. Drop on by the Kickstarter and see what we’ve got for you.

Savage Worlds News Across the Web
It’s summer. The streets are filled with schoolchildren on vacation, the air is filled with pollen, and the internet is abuzz with Savage Worlds news. Be sure to check out these highlights:*
* Of the Savage Worlds news, not highlights of free-range schoolchildren or hateful, deadly pollen. Either of those would be weird.
** Sadly, that bundle ended yesterday. I hope you didn’t miss it. If you did, you might want to sign up for the Tuesday Update e-mail so you can get the news straight to you and not let these things get by you.
The Sixth Gun Kickstarter Launches Next Week!
Six pistols of otherworldly power surfaced in the darkest days of the Civil War. The First strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads the flames of Perdition. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. The Sixth holds the key to rewriting the world. And, until only recently, the Sixth gun was lost.
Join us next Tuesday at noon on Kickstarter as we bring the world of The Sixth Gun to Savage Worlds from the comic series by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt. Heck, if you want to literally join us, be sure to check out the True Fan of the Sixth Gun backer reward—all the stuff plus you get to play in a game at Gen Con Indy 2015 GMed by Cullen Bunn with Scott Woodard at the table–and Brian Hurtt will doodle something in your Sixth Gun RPG book! There’s even more than that, but we gotta’ have some surprises for next week.
Well, be sure to check it out when the Sixth Gun Kickstarter is up next Tuesday, anyway. They’ll go fast, amigo…
PDF Combat Maps: More Places to Fight in the Weird and Wasted Wests
Even if you’re not lookin’ for a fight, you might have one. And even if you’re just standin’ there talking among the tumblebleeds and the junkers, you still gotta be standing somewhere! With our newest map PDFs, we’ve got you covered, partner.
The Stone and a Hard Place PDF Combat Map Set I brings you a whole new town for your Western games. You get your own church, a jail, the sheriff’s office, a hotel, and a nice little house with a barn. You can scale and print what you want, create a town, or churn out a whole string of ’em! It’s your call.
The Hell on Earth Wasteland PDF Combat Map Set gives you two new desert wasteland terrains with rocky spires. Fill in the desolation of that gaming table with the proper desolation of the Wasted West! While you’re at that particular radioactive itch, remember the Hell on Earth book bundles and minis bundles to scratch it with a little less scratch…
That might be all for now, but it ain’t all, my friends. Keep watching for more maps, maybe even Hell on Earth: Wasteland Highway Combat Map Sets with a full set of car figure flats. You know, just maybe.
Save a Bundle on the Lankhmar Bundle
Do you want everything that Savage Lankhmar has to offer? You know you do, and we’re just the sort to make that easier on you. Check out our newest Savage Lankhmar Preorder Bundle.
You’ll get the entire line in one convenient order with as reduced shipping costs as we can muster. How can we do that?

You might want to take advantage of that soon. There’s no tellin’ how often you’ll find an honest deal like that in a world of thieves like Lankhmar.

Last Call for Last Parsec Backers
The backer rewards from the Last Parsec Kickstarter are nearly ready to ship. If you backed at the $35 Crew level or below, your pledge will be marked as complete in BackerKit, and we’ll start shipping to everyone else who has entered their address.
Did you catch that “who has entered their address” part? That means if you’ve not put your address in the system, we can’t ship you your stuff. You want it, we want you to have it, so help us out and get your address in there if you haven’t—just follow the direction in your e-mail from BackerKit. Be a buddy and remind your friends while you’re at it, too!
Savage Thunderscape Kickstarter to Bring Aden to Savage Worlds
The World of Aden is struggling for survival against a seemingly invincible foe. The golden age of magic and technology has been darkened by an unexplained eclipse and the horrors that crawled out of it across the Known Lands. The Darkfall has changed the face of the world forever. Can you turn the tide of shadow and save Aden from the Nocturnal horde?
Savage Thunderscape is the realization of a long roleplaying journey. Kyoudai Games brought Thunderscape back to desktop gaming for Pathfinder and is now happy to bring it, fully-formed to Savage Worlds. And that seems fitting, since the world was originally developed by Shane Hensley back in the 1990s!
Be sure to check out the Savage Thunderscape Kickstarter project today for full details on backer rewards and available products, and help bring a rich new setting to Savage Worlds!
