Geek Watch One Interview with Shane Hensley

Savage Worlds Interviews on the WebKylan and Ken of Geek Watch One interviewed our own Shane Hensley at Get Con. Rather than seal the interview deep in a vault, they bundled it with several other pieces from Gen Con into one massive convention episode: Straight Outta GenCon!

If you want to go straight to Shane, he’s at the 111:30 mark. No, that’s really three ones—there’s a lot of Gen Con, you know! But don’t just listen to Shane, catch the whole thing. After all, you wouldn’t eat just the peanuts from your Peanut M&Ms, would you?

Necessary Evil 2 Coming in Two Weeks!

Black hand compoundIt’s the superhero prequel of the summer, the one that you demanded be made—Necessary Evil 2: Break Out! And you can get your hands on it in just two weeks!

When the evil v’sori destroyed earth’s superheroes, the resistance fell on the shoulders of its supervillains—including you! The nefarious resistance of New York City was one of the last to hold out against the new alien overlords, and the v’sori responded by “quarantining” Manhattan in an unbreakable energy field. Can you survive the ongoing battles for food, weapons, and dominance? Deal with the powerful gangs and the Black Hand’s black market? Handle the strange creature swarms in the sewers and subways? Can you even, possibly, Break Out?

In just two weeks, you can get your hands on the exciting prequel to Necessary Evil. It details the New York City Prison setting, complete with Plot Point Campaign for Street Level super villains trapped inside. You’ll need Savage Worlds and the Super Powers Companion, but the original Necessary Evil is purely optional—fantastic, but optional.

Gen Con Podcast Follow-Ups

Carolina Game Tables Launches Kickstarter!

Kickstarter Video Static ImageTwo of our own, Jodi Black and Clint Black, have announced Carolina Game Tables and their Kickstarter launch. We’re excited to see what their experience in the furniture industry will bring to our game rooms everywhere! In their own words:

“When we announced the Kickstarter for Carolina Game Tables in the PEG Seminar at Gen Con, we were stunned and humbled by the cheers from the Savages. What a show of support! Thank you! Even though this is not a Pinnacle product, it certainly reflects our Fast! Furious! Fun! philosophy for Savage Worlds. We think gamers In Real Life want the least prep time and the most rewarding games—and they want a table they can dine on all week long but have ready for gaming anytime they want to play.”

Be sure to visit Carolina Game Tables on the web, on Facebook, on Google Plus, on Twitter (@game_tables), and on Kickstarter!

Kickstarter News for Conan: Rise of Monsters

ReaperThe Conan: Rise of Monsters Kickstarter crested $100,000, and they couldn’t have been happier with the support and enthusiasm of their backers. So, you might be wondering why it was closed down.

Fear not! In the latest CROM Kickstarter Update, they explain it all. With the strength of the Kickstarter and the possible interest of Reaper Miniatures, they are “going to cancel our current Kickstarter, readjust some things given the advantages this new alliance gives all of us, and come back stronger sometime later this year.”

Watch for Conan again later this year, even stronger…
