Deadlands Noir Player’s Guides Now Available
Sometimes, the whole picture is just more than you need. On the desperate, dreary streets of Noir New Orleans, sometimes it’s more than you can take.
The Deadlands Noir Player’s Guide is the perfect thing for those times. It’s got all the stuff your players need out of the Deadlands Noir book without any of those pesky GM secrets from the back. Even better, it’s only $4.99 for the PDF, and you get a site license to share it with the rest of the crew at your gaming table. Times is tough, buddy, but we’ll help you stretch that greenback all the way across the Mighty Mississip.
If you’re thinkin’ that “free” is an even better deal, you’re right. Go get a copy of the Deadlands Noir Companion Player’s Guide. It covers the new Blessed and Syker Arcane Backgrounds, some of the history of Deadlands Noir, and puts a handy Hexaco map in the palm of your hand—all for the mighty cost of zero dollars and zero cents!
Still want more Deadlands Noir? Keep your eyes wide open, and watch close for more come June.

Clint Black on the New Shaken Rule on Savage Bloggers Network
Clint Black joined Kristian Serrano of Savage Bloggers Network to answer questions about our recent change to the Shaken rules. Not only did Clint offer insight into the thought process of the change as well as the mechanics of updating the rules, he also fielded questions from additional guest Ron Blessing and proved that anyone can have a comically long run of technical difficulties. Both the discussion and Clint’s ability to mime in a muted video window are worth your time!

Shocking Shaken Shake-Up!
We’re changing a rule, and it’s a change we think you’ll be happy with. As Clint explains in his post on the Pinnacle Forum, you no longer need a raise on your Spirit roll to recover fully from being Shaken.
“At the beginning of their action, a Shaken character makes a Spirit roll to recover. On a failure, he remains Shaken. On a success, the character removes their Shaken condition and may take their action normally.”
Join in at the Pinnacle Forum for on-going discussions of this rules change and virtually everything else Savage Worlds.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Spanish Savage Worlds
We’re mucho happio* to announce HT Publishers as our official translators for Savage Worlds products into Spanish. We’re pretty sure they’re happy about it in their announcement, too, but we don’t really speak Spanish—that’s why we need the translators, you see.
For all of our Spanish-speaking amigos out there, keep your eyes open for more Spanish Savage Worlds products in the future!
* I think now you can see why we didn’t hire me to do our Spanish translation. I would’ve been muy embarassado…**
** Yes, I actually do know what I just said. That’s the joke. My humor is complex.
