Ed Wetterman and Jerry Blakemore at Texicon This Weekend

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouIf you’re in or can find your way to Grapevine, Texas, this weekend, I’ve got a weekend plan for you!

Seriously, how much more Savage Worlds Texas can you get?


Deadlands Noir Anniversary Sale!

Deadlands Noir Anniversary BundleIt’s been three years since Deadlands Noir came walking in the door. Thirty-six months. One hundred fifty-six weeks. That’s how long the gritty streets of a darker past have haunted the office. If that’s not a good enough reason to celebrate, what is?

And celebrate we will, friend. For the anniversary of the end of the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter, we’ve created a Deadlands Noir Bundle including the full line at 20% off with free domestic shipping! If you’re just after the missing piece or two to fill out your collection, everything from Deadlands Noir is available at 20% off (though normal shipping rates apply).

Take the alleyways of a mean city today, and be the closest thing to hero you can be. Maybe you’re as good as this age can get, or maybe you’re all it deserves. Either way, you’re all it has.

Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter Starts Last Week with a Bang!

The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter: Kickstarter Staff Pick!Well, almost the last week. There are only nine days left for The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter! If you’ve been hesitating, now’s the time to pull that trigger before it’s too dang late, partner! And we’re so close to catching the last stretch goal of all-new content written by Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, and Scott Woodard exclusively for the Sixth Gun RPG—be sure to get all your friends on the bandwagon so you get the most for your backer dollar.

We ain’t just here for your money, though—we ain’t no hold-’em-up gang on the digital stagecoach routes. Nope, we’re bringing stuff to you!

First off, be sure to watch the the latest episode of the Savage Bloggers Network podcast, The Sixth Gun Interview. Kristian Serrano and Ron Blessing talk with Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, Scott Woodard, and our own Clint Black about The Sixth Gun comic and setting as well as The Sixth Gun RPG. Clint even claims sharp-eyed viewers will spot a clue in the video behind him as to what’s coming out next from Pinnacle—unless it’s Savage Fireplace Mantle, I might’ve missed it.

Second, we’ve got another free adventure for you! Circle the Wagon brings you to the possible aid of an ailin’ fella on the trail, but all is not as it seems. Circle the Wagon even includes game stats for one of the namesake Six Guns! And, just like the first adventure, The One-Hand Gang, it’s free from the Sixth Gun RPG section of the Pinnacle Web Store.

So quit bein’ so pokey, cowpoke! Go back The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter, or at least start playing the free Sixth Gun RPG adventures, today.

The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter Hitting Its Targets!

The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter: Kickstarter Staff Pick!Just last week, The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter met several stretch goals—a print showcasing the cast image, Cards of the Six, and Creature Features for The Great Wyrms and Griselda the Grey Witch. This week, we’ve hit [cue the suspenseful music] The Sixth Goal*—that’s right, we’ve added a set of Sixth Gun Archetypes and Sixth Gun Figure Flats: Villains + Heroes! There’s only one left right now…that we’re admitting to, anyway! Be sure to drop by the The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter to get a full list of the goals, backer options, and details.

There are also adventures available right now. That’s right folks, no waiting. You can get your own free copy of The Sixth Gun: The One-Hand Gang from DriveThruRPG or from the Pinnacle Web Store (right by the free and informative Triptych o’ Trouble on the Sixth Gun RPG page).

Maybe all that is why the The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter is now a Kickstarter Staff Pick! Or maybe it’s just because it’s sooo darned cool—I’m torn.

And if you’re thinking about joining in the game that Cullen himself is running at Gen Con, you might want to check out his game promise video. It sounds like a good time destined to end in tears, gunfire, and blood!

Don’t go into the world of the Sixth Gun RPG alone—be sure to bring your friends with you. Be sure to tell ’em about it today!

* I fully understand the Sixth Goal is not as impressive as the Sixth Gun, but it still sounds kind of cool, right? C’mon—humor me on this one.
