Spotted on Kickstarter: Plugged Nickel Playing Cards

Plugged Nickel Playing Cards Kickstarter ProjectWe ran across the Plugged Nicked Playing Cards Kickstarter. It’s not affiliated with Pinnacle or any of the licensees, but it just screams Deadlands with its tag line—”Playing cards based on the Old West. And dead people. But mostly the Old West.”

Oh, sure, you could probably use these cards for virtually any Old West game if you wanted. But you know you’re thinking Deadlands, too. And don’t be a slowpoke—the Plugged Nicked Playing Cards Kickstarter ends this Friday!

While you’re out there (and only if your wallet can take it), you might want to poke around for other great themed decks for your various Savage Worlds games.

Happy Fourth of July!

Fourth of July FireworksAs we take to our back yards, pools, and parks to celebrate American Independence Day [or Good Riddance Day for at least some of our British cousins], we want to wish all of you a very happy summer season.* It’s time for watermelons, barbecues, and family vacations. There’s probably even a good dose of game convention time for some of you, too.

Whatever it is you’re getting up to this year, please take a minute and do it safely. Wear some sunscreen. Keep your picnic foods at proper temperatures. Obey pool rules. Don’t hold lit fireworks in your mouth.** Watch for ticks.

None of these things are particularly challenging, and many of them can make a great deal of difference in preventing something unfortunate from happening. As much as I wish you all the care-free fun that summer can bring, I truly hope to see you at the end of it, none the worse for wear.

Now, go. Have some fun. Make some memories.

*Yes, I am aware that some of you are south of the equator and aren’t so much having summer right now as winter. I hope you’re having a lovely time of it wherever you are, whatever season you’re having. Truly.
**Seriously, this is a problem every single year in my family.

Find the Queen of the Lost Valley

The Queen of the Lost ValleyGRAmel brings you The Queen of the Lost Valley, the sixth adventure for the Beasts & Barbarians fantasy settings for Savage Worlds.

The way through the Iron Mountains has been impassable for months. Surely you can help the enterprising merchant Jannah the Red evade or overcome the bandits of Justaios the Rebel. Perhaps you can use the long-forgotten pass Jannah has discovered on an ancient map and be the first to step into a valley left alone by civilization for centuries. Surely.

The Queen of the Lost Valley also includes a Book of Lore discussing the Iron Mountains, their savage people and a host of strange forgotten places.
