Last Chance for the Last Parsec Kickstarter!

JumpCorp Asimov Circuits PosterSpace may be infinite, but Kickstarters aren’t. The Last Parsec Kickstarter project closes this Thursday, October 23, at 12:23 pm EDT (9:23 am PDT).

Don’t despair! You still have time to join up and grab a few more of our Stretch Goals. Just this week, Last Parsec Figure Flats II: Terrors of Deep Space were unlocked. That’s our ninth Stretch Goal so far, and the next ones mean more Last Parsec Miniatures for everyone getting any minis at all—at no additional cost! You can also get your hands on new add-ons, like Savage Worlds Deluxe, the Savage Worlds Science Fiction Companion, and the new custom Last Parsec Dice Set.

You’ll also have lots of things to remember us by! Just this week, we’ve put out John Goff’s latest Last Parsec One-Sheet, Catch of the Day. You can also get the Design Diary Volume 4 for more insights into the creation of The Last Parsec material. Remember, you can get all the Design Diaries, One Sheets, and other free resources (like the Last Parsec Character Sheet) from the Downloads section at the right of the Last Parsec page. And there’s always the entire Wendigo Tales Season 3 for you—six different tales of life in The Last Parsec, ready for your reading pleasure.

More Hell on Earth Coming Next Week

The Worms' Turn for Hell on EarthHell on Earth CompanionIs your Wasted West gettin’ too small? Are you hankerin’ for more? Your time is comin’, partner, and this time it’s in a good way. Like we said earlier this month, you’ll be seeing the Hell on Earth Reloaded Companion and The Worms’ Turn both come available for preorders (or immediate PDF purchases) this month, but when would be a surprise. It’s not happened yet, and it’s not happening today. Since there’s only one week of October left, you might not be as surprised as possible when they’re both available next week!

The Hell on Earth Companion gives your scav what she needs to be an honest-to-Oppenheimer cyborg and also adds two new Arcane Backgrounds—Librarian and Witch! If you’re not lookin’ for more weird, just more BOOM, there’s plenty of guns and gear, details of more dangers of the irradiated future and vehicle combat, and a chance to talk to a lonely AI in the sky…

Hell on Earth: The Worms’ Turn is set in the aftermath of the massive battle called The Harvest. Sure you banished the Reckoners, but what about those other, older terrors you didn’t realize they were keeping in check? The Worms’ Turn updates the events of the Wasted West, contains several Savage Tales ready to weave into your story, and has a full-length Plot-Point Campaign all set to go!

So be sure to tune in here next week for the biggest expansion Hell on Earth: Reloaded’s seen since all those ghost rock bombs went off! You’ll also get a shot at discounted bundle options, but their half-life will probably be way less than most of what you’re used to in the Wasted West.

Pinnacle Supports LORTNation and Girls in STEM

Ladies of the Round Table LORTCrate Charity RaffleLORTNation.com (for Ladies of the Round Table) is a self-styled group of “Geeks for Equality.” What makes them a little different is their focus on encouraging girls into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) studies.

Even if you’re not particularly keen on equality, you should still care. Current projections suggest that we’ll run out of qualified folks who can finish the development of your favorite video games if we don’t expand the role of women in STEM studies! (Sure, that technical gap also applies to people who can build bridges and develop vaccines, but we all know what really matters, right?)

Oh, and you can win a lot of cool stuff, too. Their LORTCrate Raffle will give a box of over $250 worth of gaming goodness—including materials from Pinnacle—to one lucky fan on November 14. You can enter for as little as $5, and all proceeds go directly to the Ladies of the Round Table STEM Education Scholarship Fund. It’s a great deal for a great cause, and we’re happy to support it.

And speaking of women in gaming, they’ve also got an interview with our own Jodi Black about her role in gaming and The Last Parsec Kickstarter project available right now. I never realized we had a role model right here on staff, so be sure to check it out today!

Hop Aboard DramaScape’s Valkyrie Smuggling Ship

DramaScape's Valkyrie Smuggling ShipThe Valkyrie Smuggling Ship was trying to sneak past your view, but your finely-tuned sensors have detected DramaScape’s latest space ship map!

Fabricated Dreams Finishes Wendigo Tales Season 3

In Fabricated Dreams, the crew discovers a wonder both ancient and new at the same time. Is the dusty planet as empty as it seems? And if it is, who—or what—keeps building the strange structures on its surface?

Fabricated Dreams by Timothy Brian Brown is the sixth and final installment of Wendigo Tales: Season 3The Last Parsec and is now available. Fabricated Dreams joins Michael Conn’s How the Life Goes On, Christine Thompson’s Echoes, John Wick’s A Clear Understanding of Honor, Shane Hensley’s  The Searchers, and Cameron Dayton’s Scrapped.

Space is big and inviting. Roll around in it with your own Last Parsec Wendigo Tales!

Last Week of the Last Parsec Kickstarter

The Last Parsec Kickstarter ProjectThere’s about a week left on The Last Parsec Kickstarter project, but we’re not going quietly into that good, long, cold night!

Happy Homecoming with More ETU Freebies!

Brewhaha One Sheet for East Texas UniversitySomething’s off about campus-favorite beer Brazen Hussy. Is there something wrong with the equipment? Is the owner’s new ex-wife angry enough over a divorce more bitter than a handful of hops to commit sabotage? Is the health department right about their concerns of drugged dregs? Or is there something more sinister at work on these spirited suds?

You and your classmates can get to the root of the problem, save a business, and maybe score some free six-packs in Brewhaha, our newest One-Sheet for East Texas University! And don’t forget our other great ETU One-Sheets, Shock Jock and Jack’s Back, which can easily be threaded with Brewhaha.

But to celebrate this festive time on college campuses everywhere, we’re also giving you a whole campus of your very own. Heck, we’ll even throw in a town! Download your free poster-sized ETU Campus Map and Map of Pinebox, Texas now. Be sure to check out all the free downloads for ETU (available at the right of the East Texas University page).
