Pinnacle at Con on the Cob – This Weekend!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouThis weekend, Con on the Cob returns to Richfield, Ohio, once again promising four fantastic days of games, art, freaks, and fun!

The brainchild of artist and game designer, Andy Hopp (Low Life for Savage Worlds), Con on the Cob is a truly unique convention experience that brings together artists, musicians, gamers, and so much more! Joining Andy and the gang this weekend as Special Gaming Guest is “Big Irish” himself, our very own Sean Patrick Fannon (Savage Rifts®).

To learn more visit the Con on the Cob website. And be sure to check out all the Savage Worlds games already on the schedule (everything from East Texas University to Solomon Kane).

Be sure to ask Andy to sign your book. Sometimes he draws a cute critter. Sometimes it’ll look like he’s sneezed in it, but that’s just one of the many strange playable races from Low Life…we think. 😉

Saturday night, don’t miss Clint’s Savage Worlds game, The Prophecy of the Omen of Hell`s Cheerleaders running from 8pm to Midnight:

“The Brotherhood of the Celestial Torch fights the forces of Hell wherever they appear, but are better known in the supernatural community as…Demon Hunters!

But all Demon Hunters have to start somewhere, and that place is Omega level for newbies (and has-beens). As a member of Chapter Omega Twelve, it’s time for your first mission. You know the other members of the Brotherhood believe in you as they are already taking bets on when you kill your first monster…at least that’s what you think the “Time Till Death” pool is about.

Welcome to the last job you’ll ever have. Welcome to the Demon Hunters!”
