Jim—Yes, That Jim—Talks Deadlands

Savage Worlds on the WebJim Ryan (of Jim—Yes, That Jim and Crucible of Realms infamy) just released an episode nearly-entirely about Deadlands, with a splash of mash-up genre philosophy thrown in for flavor. Check out his Deadlands and More Deadlands episode now!

For those of you who are particularly fond of imaginary animals, Jim claims no jackalopes were harmed in the making of the podcast. Personally, I have my doubts…

Pinnacle Announces Scooby-Doo Unleashed

Scooby-Doo UnleashedWe have a confession to make: Clint Black’s super-secret Scooby-Doo Unleashed game at MACE West was really the final test run for our newest setting! Now that licensing arrangements have been confirmed, we can proudly announce our new vision of the Mystery Machine Team serving as the last stand between mankind and the coming zombie apocalypse!

And this is a release for all you impatient folks out there. There’s no Kickstarter. There’s no lag time. We’re incorporating the final pieces of playtesting feedback now, and we anticipate releasing the Scooby-Doo Unleashed PDF for immediate download and the Scooby-Doo Unleashed print version for preorder on the thirty-first of the month! Join the crew and get your Scooby Snacks ready!

But wait—it gets even better! With our new licensing arrangement with the Cartoon Network, we have access to all the classic Hanna-Barbera properties. Coming releases (which probably won’t be as quick, sadly) will include

  • Johnny Quest: Rippers Modern
  • Necessary Evil 3: Dyno-Mutt’s Revenge
  • 50 Fathoms 2: Jabberjaw’s Feeding Frenzy
  • Deadlands: Quick Draw McGraw with Stone from 41 Minutes in the Future

To keep on top of all the latest developments in this and other breaking Pinnacle Entertainment news, be sure to subscribe to our e-mail list today!

 

As I’m sure many of you already suspect, I’m afraid this is only our little April Fool’s joke. There’s no Hanna-Barbera properties coming, we don’t have an agreement with Cartoon Network, and Scooby-Doo remains, I presume, leashed. But you really can sign up for weekly e-mails and news from Pinnacle, and there really is some excellent Scooby-Doo versus the zombie apocalypse art available from joke participant Jeff Zoet.

Maps to the Stars Now from Wendigo Tales

Necessary Evil: Maps to the Stars in Wendigo TalesThis is your first chance to get Chris Lites’ Maps to the Stars—the newest release for Wendigo Tales. Season Two continues in the world of Necessary Evil, where the super villains of earth have to fight an occupying alien force and their own baser natures to save the planet!

Jenner Tavern rode out the alien invasion doing what he does best: looking out for himself. Now, as the super villain host of the popular death match show Arena!, Jenner thinks he has it made. But a visit from an old accomplice is about to remind him that the past never stays dead and all supers, even a pampered celebrity like Jenner, are expendable in the eyes of Earth’s new alien overlords.

Be sure to check out the previous tales from Season Two—Faces of Destruction (insanely, still free), Thicker Than Water, Fallen, and Purgatory—or any of the stories of the Weird Wars from Wendigo Tales: Season One.
