Savage Bones Brings Savage Worlds Stats to Reaper Bones Minis

Savage BonesSometimes, you guys take the Savage Worlds Fan License and do things that just make us go, “Hey, that’s awesome!” Savage Bones is one of those things.

Since the middle of last year, Savage Bones has been creating Savage Worlds stat blocks for all the minis from the Reaper Bones miniature line. We might not be quick on the draw, but we certainly recognize a good idea when we finally see it. Now you can drop any of the Reapers Bones minis straight into your Savage Worlds games with virtually no effort at all!

For all you minis fans, be sure to check out the Savage Worlds Minis from Reaper as well as Reaper’s full line of minis.

If you weren’t able to meet up with Shane Hensley during his recent trip to GameStorm 2014 or just couldn’t follow him around as closely as you might’ve liked (which is starting to sound creepy), here’s the trip he remembers in photos!

06: Shane, Zev Shlasinger of Z-Man Games, and Mike Selinker (lately of the Pathfinder card game) were the Guests of Honor.
07: One of the nicest guys we know… Zev of Z-Man Games!
08: Jim Pinto was there running Postworld Games’ Protocol series, featuring Deadlands.
09: Mike Kelley ran a GREAT Deadlands Noir game for Jim Pinto, Noir editor Scott Alan Woodard, and our web team…Brendan and Sara Quinn.
10: Shane ran a game of Savage Marvel, featuring the Midnight Sons!
11: These gators may have taken a bit of zombie Deadpool…
12: Gaming Coordinator Ron “Batman” Steinhauser played a mean Blade, the Vampire Hunter!

Malcontents Added to Wendigo Tales: Season Two

MalcontentsMalcontents by Jon Leitheusser is this week’s new release for Wendigo Tales Season Two. 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!

Stretch is a super villain down on his luck. His occasional work for the resistance might help the war effort against the aliens, but it’s not doing all that much for his meager bank account and overdue alimony and child support.  His new assignment is to break into the terrible drone factory—where humans are turned into super-enhanced, zombie-like slaves for the v’sori. But what he finds inside is a little more—and a little more personal—than just the next score.

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

We’re Coming to the Northwest, the Southeast, and France!

Zed or Alive Kickstarter Begins—With Initial Funding!

Zed or Alive KickstarterZed or Alive: The Zombie Miniatures Game launched on Kickstarter just a few days ago, and has already met its initial funding goal! This campaign-based miniatures skirmish game is set in the years following a zombie apocalypse and is powered, at its core, by the Savage Worlds: Showdown! miniatures combat system.

This is Rust Devil Games’ first release, and is already ready to be distributed by digital download—no waiting around on this one! Not only are the pledge levels cheap, but the Savage Worlds: Showdown! rules are free from the Savage Worlds downloads links.

If you want to hear all about it, including interviews with the creators, be sure to listen to The Nerd’s Domain: Episode 66. The whole podcast is about the Zed or Alive Kickstarter[Say, if you're a journalist, blogger, podcaster, webmaster, news agency, or other creator of content that might feature well here, you should talk to Jodi Black. Nerd's Domain did...]

Be sure to check out the Zed or Alive Kickstarter for details about backing and about the game itself. Did we mention that you can play as several different kinds of zombies, as humans, or even as a virus strain? That you can play with any minis you’ve got, including different scales? That there are several stretch goals that appear to be in easy reach and come at a remarkably affordable backer level?

Huh. Sounds like you really ought to visit the Zed or Alive Kickstarter instead of counting on this far-too-brief article to cover everything! Heck, they even tackle the “what do you mean another zombie game” question right on the front page, and they’ve even got a good answer!
