Now on Kickstarter, Era: Balam from Shades of Vengeance, is a science fiction roleplaying game celebrating the 40th anniversary of the launch of Voyager 1:
When our space probe arrived on an alien world, it crash-landed on one of their power stations and the resulting disaster rendered their world uninhabitable. Seeking revenge, and a new world to live on, the aliens escaped from their world on a massive ship and set a course along the path of the probe…
They encountered humanity at a remote outpost many years later, in a system known as HX-7371. More recently, it has come to be known as the “Killing Fields,” as the war between the aliens’ superior forces and the fighters the humans have been able to cobble together has now lasted two years.
The main colony in the system, Balam, is well-hidden, but if the aliens were ever to find it, they would be able to find their way to Earth… and that might mean extinction.
You’ll have the chance to explore various planets and the space around them: Fly over icy plains to track down an important salvage opportunity, brave the depths of space for scouting missions and land on the moons of a spectacular Gas Giant as you explore and attempt to stop the aliens from completing their mission…
Shades of Vengeance recently became an officially-approved Savage Worlds licensee and they are working with veteran designer Dave Blewer (Achtung! Cthulhu, Sundered Skies) on the Savage Worlds edition of the game.

Modiphius Entertainment and Pinnacle Entertainment Group are excited to announce the upcoming Achtung! Cthulhu: Showdown! game. Launching in spring 2014 with the awesome Achtung! Cthulhu miniatures, Achtung! Cthulhu: Showdown! is a stand-alone miniatures rulebook and full campaign setting—now skirmish players can dive right in to the world of Achtung! Cthulhu.
Think you’re excited? Check out what our own Shane Hensley has to say:
“We’ve been dying to see one of our Savage Worlds licensees do a big, full-blown Showdown miniatures game for some time. Modiphius has truly impressed us with Achtung! Cthulhu, and when we saw the incredible miniatures and terrain for the game Mark Margraf created for it at GenCon 2013, we knew this was something truly special. We can’t wait to get some lead painted and play it ourselves!”
