Savage Worlds Stopovers on the Information Superhighway

Savage Worlds on the Web: An Interview with Shane HensleyThe internet isn’t filled with just cat pictures and, uh, let’s say “baseball statistics,” you know. Sometimes, there’s Savage Worlds stuff, too!

Cheyenne Wright made an interesting little Google Story of Cheyenne’s trip to ConQuest Sacramento with John Goff. It’s a really nifty annotated picture album of the trip, including preferred candies, that time they got surprised by a mountain range, and photos of John Goff himself worthy of framing.*

If you want your pictures moving, check out this 50 Fathoms fan-made game trailer. Now that’s quite the impressive combination of recruiting, invitation, and save-the-date card!

And if you want your Savage Worlds reference wrapped in a big ol’ sci-fi magazine, see if you can spot the full-page Savage Worlds ad in the latest Sci Fi Max magazine!

* Admittedly, I’m not really sure what decor calls for framed pictures of John Goff. Come to think of it, I suspect that applies to most anyone in gaming.


Stone is Coming Your Way!

Stone and a Hard Place for Deadlands ReloadedYou know, when we said that that Stone and a Hard Place would be shipping almost immediately after the Dead Men Walking Kickstarter duo concluded, we meant that! The Stone and a Hard Place PDF has already released to Kickstarter backers, and it will be available for preorders starting next week.

Heck, if your draw is half as speedy as our fulfillment, you might just stand a chance when the right hand of Death comes a-callin’. Oh, who are we kiddin’…you probably don’t…

Dead Men Walking Now at Rest!

Dead Men Walking Kickstarters Fundified!That’s it, amigos—our Dead Men Walking Kickstarter duo has reached the end of the line. Actually, they both went way past the end of the line with wild success! Both the Cackler Graphic Novel Kickstarter and the Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter closed last Thursday.

The Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter raised just over $50,000 of our $6,000 target, meeting every stretch goal we put out for it!

The Cackler Graphic Novel Kickstarter raised just over $35,000 of the higher $20,000 target, likewise meeting every single stretch goal we set for it. With over 500 backers, it even met the stretch goals laid out in the Cackler’s Challenge to wildly expand the Stone and a Hard Place rewards!

The Dead Men Walking campaign was a new challenge for us in many ways. We’d never considered running two Kickstarters at the same time, and some people told us we were mad for even thinking it! I guess we know who’s crazy now, eh? The Cackler Graphic Novel was also a bit of unknown territory for us, too, as we walked with Visionary a little way off from our normal RPG hunting grounds. But with friends and fans like you, we can do anything! We want to sincerely thank you for all your help and support, and we hope you’re looking forward to these two great products that will reshape the story of the Weird West for years to come!

Pranac Pursuit Adventure Released for The Last Parsec!

Pranac Pursuit, a Last Parsec Adventure for Savage WorldsThe scout ship Distant Light was last heard from going into the Pranac System. When a whole ship goes missing people get touchy—whether it’s the loss of investment, the loss of the crew, or simple fear of the unknown, everyone has their own reasons.

It’s best if someone finds her, and finds her fast. It’s time for your group of heroes to negotiate with strange aliens, explore a primeval planet, and solve the mystery of the so-called “sages” to find the ship and her missing crew, before it’s too late.

Pranac Pursuit is a 23-page adventure for the Last Parsec written by Sterling Hershey. Don’t leave those poor souls lost in hostile space—play Pranac Pursuit today and be the hero we know you can be!
