Recently, fellow gamer, GM, and designer Christopher J. N. Banks lost his only child, Persephonee, age 5½. Our hearts go out to him and his family during this time of grieving.
While there are no magic words we in the publishing community can offer up, we do have games—several publishers are supporting a charity effort with the Game Master Memorial Fund Charity Drive. Proceeds will be donated to help cover medical expenses and a proper tribute to a little girl whose smile has left us far too early. At only $20 with over a dozen Savage Worlds titles and several maps and tokens for any game you play, it’s a good bargain for a good cause.
Whether you choose to support the Game Master Memorial Fund Charity Drive or not, please be sure to spend some time with the special people in your lives while you still have them. It’s all too easy for an opportunity missed to become an opportunity lost.
Whether you like Pinnacle products, DriveThruRPG, anniversary celebrations, or savings in general, you’re going to love these bundles!

The DTRPG 10th Anniversary RPG Bundle 2 includes the full version of Necessary Evil: Explorer’s Edition.

Expand (or start) your Deadlands Classic library and support two worthy causes at Bundle of Holding!
For a limited time, you can get the core collection of Deadlands Classic rulebook PDFs for only $10.95. That’s over a $20 savings, and ten percent of your payment (not the profits, mind you) is split between the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. If you beat the threshold, you’ll get seven more great Deadlands Classic titles—that’s an $82 value with the possibility of more PDFs being added later!
Whether you’re a die-hard Deadlands Classic player, want to support some fine charities, or want to catch up on your Deadlands history before the upcoming Xbox Originals Deadlands series, this is your chance to do just that. Heck, you can do all three things at once, amigo!
What you can’t do, though, is wait. This is a limited time offer, and it won’t survive a week on the internet. Get it while you can, partner!
In case you haven’t heard, we’ve just announced a dramatic series in development with XBox Originals! You can read more about it here!
We’re incredibly excited about this opportunity and can’t wait to tell you more about it. In the meantime, whether you’re new to the Deadlands roleplaying game or are one of our original Deadlands Classic fans looking to catch up, we’ve put together a pair of special bundles of the current and latest version of the game. Act fast—these two Deadlands bundles will only be available for 2 weeks (or one fortnight, or until May 13).
The Little Deadlands Celebration Bundle – $150: You get the Deadlands Player’s Guide and Marshal’s Handbook, the Marshal’s Screen with Murder on the Hellstromme Express, Smith & Robards 1880 Catalog, and the two Plot Point Campaigns, The Flood and The Last Sons, in both print and PDF. Alone, those are worth over $280. Heck, we’ll even throw in the domestic shipping, so that’s half off!
The Big Deadlands Celebration Bundle – $299: You get everything in the Little Bundle plus most every print and PDF product we’ve made for Deadlands Reloaded! That’s over $550 worth of Weird Western wonder and adventure, amigos! Just like the Little Bundle, domestic shipping is on us!

New Orleans, 1935. The Depression makes each day uncertain, like a moral compass in hard times, and times have never been harder. The constant rain beats folks down like a fixed fight, and every schmuck with an ounce of authority, from your local beat cop to his honor the mayor himself, is as rotten as an old bag of apples sunk in the bayou.
Worst of all, things lurk in the shadows, and when life gets as dark as the waters of the Mississipi, some mooks get stupid enough to think conjuring them out of the shadows might just make things better.
And that’s when some sharp shamus, grizzled grifter, prizefighting palooka, or dangerous dame has to step in and let them know that no matter how bad things get, there are still a few hardboiled heroes ready to face monsters in the night.
Deadlands Noir—a pen-and-paper roleplaying game set in the world of Pinnacle Entertainment’s award-winning Deadlands universe—is now available to everyone, not just our Kickstarter backers. It includes new Edges, Hindrances, and powers, as well as new rules for handling detective work, the state of the Union and the CSA in the Depression era, a complete Plot Point campaign, and of course, more monsters and ghouls than you can shake a smoking .45 automatic at.
You can get the Deadlands Noir PDF format from us directly, from Studio 2 Publishing, or at DriveThruRPG. Our fulfillment partners at Studio 2 Publishing are also taking preorders for the printed book and have the Print-PDF Preorder Bundle available. The bundle gets you the PDF immediately, the printed book as soon as it’s available, and a price break—and with the world today, what palooka don’t need a price break!
If good things come in small packages and come to those who wait, then you can be doubly happy—Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition is now shipping! Most of the pre-order books have been sent out, and many of you who pre-ordered may have your copy in your hands right now. Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition is being shipped to distributors this week, and you can expect to see it in retail stores as early as Monday, August 13.
As always, we’re giving you one last chance at the Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition Preorder Bundle—get the PDF and the printed book together for only $14.99! Don’t dawdle, as this offer will vanish from the web by next Tuesday.
If you missed it before, the Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition is absolutely everything from the lavish, full-size, hardcover Savage Worlds Deluxe core rulebook packed into the wildly popular Explorer’s Edition softcover 6.5″ x 9″ form factor. Not only did we make the book smaller, we compacted the price down to $9.99, too!
We’re big fans of giving you options here at Pinnacle, too. So you can get the Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition as a PDF (from the Pinnacle PDF Store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG) or in print, and you can also still get the full-size, hardback Savage Worlds Deluxe as long as stocks remain or the full-size 8.5″ x 11″ PDF (also from the Pinnacle PDF Store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG).
50 Fathoms: Explorer’s Edition began shipping to pre-orders and distributors last week. If you’re one of those lucky folks, you may already be dripping in sea-faring adventure by now! Keep an eye out at your local retailer—I’m sure they’ll be awash in 50 Fathoms soon!
If you missed your chance to preorder the fully-updated 6.5″ x 9″ softcover of our classic fantasy pirate setting, don’t go adding your salty tears to the rising waters! Just like we always do, you’ll get one last seven-day shot at grabbing the Print-PDF Bundle. We also have the Megabundle, with the printed book, the PDF, and the custom 50 Fathoms Bennies. Act fast, because both of those bundles will be sailing off into the sunset before the next Tuesday comes.
You can also check out the 50 Fathoms PDFs in our own Pinnacle PDF Store.
I think we can all agree that it’s the little things that make life better, and now Savage World Deluxe is one of them!
Just like we promised, we packed everything from the lavish, full-size, hardcover Savage Worlds Deluxe core rulebook into the widly popular Explorer’s Edition softcover 6.5″ x 9″ form factor to bring you Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition!
You can buy the PDF right now, preorder the printed book, or get the best of both worlds with the Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition Preorder Bundle (with the PDF available immediately, the book shipped as soon as it’s available, and a discount).
Don’t fear, though. We’re all about the choice here at Pinnacle, and that choice is still yours. You can get the full-size, hardback Savage Worlds Deluxe as long as stocks remain, and the full-size, 8.5″ x 11″ PDF is also still available.
