Halloween is the Season for Rippers

Savage Worlds Great Deals For A Great CauseWhen it comes to combating vampires, werewolves, mummies, demons, and other things that go bump in the night on the gaslit streets of Victorian London (and beyond), nothing quite compares to Rippers Resurrected!

With the latest Bundle of Holding, you can dive right into this rich setting where rival members of secret societies do battle with one another across the globe. Enhanced through the mad science of rippertech, your heroes can graft aspects of their enemies onto themselves raising the stakes in this secret war for the planet. Think Penny Dreadful meets The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen meets the 2004 film, Van Helsing (yes, the one with Hugh Jackman) and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what awaits you in the world of Rippers Resurrected!

For just $7.95 you get all five titles in our Player’s Collection (retail value $37) as PDF ebooks, including the Rippers Resurrected Player’s Guide, Archetypes, and the Deluxe Character and Campaign Journal, plus the complete Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition rulebook and the Horror Companion. And if you pay more than the threshold price of $18.06, you’ll also get the entire Game Master’s Collection with nine more Rippers Resurrected supplements worth an additional $56, including the Game Master’s Handbook and the Frightful Expeditions worldbook; the adventure Lord of the Underworld; five Combat Maps of tombs, castles, and other spooky battlegrounds; and The Lost Library, a massive archive of the entire First Edition Rippers line (2005-2008), with adventures, characters, Figure Flats, and even the Horror Wars Showdown miniatures game.

Please note that 10% of your payment (after gateway fees) for this bundle goes straight to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Deadlands: Boneyard a New Novel by Seanan McGuire

Deadlands: Boneyard, the new novel from New York Times bestselling author, Seanan McGuire (October Daye, InCryptid) is now available, just in time for Halloween!

Step right up to see the oddities and marvels of The Blackstone Family Circus and Travelling Wonder Show! Gasp at pit wasps the size of a man’s forearm. Beware the pumpkin-headed corn stalker, lest it plant its roots in you!

Annie Pearl is the keeper of oddities, the mistress of monsters. Her unique collection of creatures is one of the circus’s star attractions, drawing wide-eyed crowds at every small frontier town they visit. But Annie is also a woman running from her past… and the mother of a young daughter, Adeline, whom she will do anything to protect.

Hoping to fill its coffers before winter sets in, the circus steers its wagons to The Clearing, a remote community deep in the Oregon wilderness, surrounded by an ominous dark wood. Word is that a travelling show can turn a tidy profit at The Clearing, but there are whispers, too, of unexplained disappearances that afflict one out of every four shows that pass through the town.

The Clearing has it secrets, and so does Annie. And it may take everything she has to save her daughter—and the circus—from both.

Deadlands: Boneyard is published by Tor and is available wherever books are sold. If you’re a fan of our Deadlands setting, find yourself a copy and lose yourself in The Clearing now!


Licensee Spotlight: SPQR Games

Guild of Shadows Kickstarter CampaignIf you’re a fan of thief-based fantasy such as the Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks, Michael J. Sullivan’s Riyria Revelations, or Scott Lynch’s Locke Lamora novels, or if you simply yearn for the good ol’ days of The Complete Thief’s Handbook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Guild of Shadows from our friends with SPQR Games is for you!

In Guild of Shadows, players take on the roles of guild members, planning and executing high-end robberies, confidence schemes, smash ‘n’ grab jobs, information gathering assignments, and even the occasional assassination. The Guild of Shadows campaign setting brings a variety of new thief specialties to the Savage Worlds core rules including smuggler, pickpocket, burglar, swindler, enforcer, spy, and assassin. More than 30 custom Edges and Hindrances also bring these rogues to life.

Since successfully Kickstarting the setting, SPQR Games has expanded Guild of Shadows with multiple adventures, detailed city maps, battlemaps, and much more all available via DriveThruRPG. More recently, SPQR Games released an all-new adventure titled Zeppelin Falls that takes characters into the air in a heist set aboard Kurstwahl’s very first airship.
