Join Us at Dragon Con for Savage Sunday Night

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouIf you’re going to be in the greater Atlanta area this weekend (August 29–September 2), you know you’re going to want to come to Dragon Con—it’s huge, it’s famous, it’s infamous, and we’re going to be there!

Who’s “we” this time? Jodi Black will be there all weekend manning the Beautiful Brains Books and Games booth and sitting on a few panels, Clint Black will be helping his wife with the booth [if he knows what's good for him, anyway] and sitting on several panels, and Joel Kinstle will even pop out of the woodwork to run a game and visit. There might even be a few of the Savage Worlds Tokens from Gen Con that make it down to be sold.

And, yes, that means there will be Savage Worlds gaming. check the Dragon Con game schedule for all opportunities, but be sure to mark your calendar for Savage Sunday Night. That’s right, Sunday at 6:00, we’ll have a big collection of Savage Worlds games to choose from (in addition to the ones running all weekend). Not only will we have Dawson Kriska running a Savage Worlds version of his Pathfinder adventure Plagued Seas, but you could also join a Scooby Doo game, Silence on Theegon 6, Arctigator vs. Sharkosaurus, The Hunt Begins, and Little Lamb Lost. See you there!

New Releases Available at Gen Con

Pinnacle at GenConIt’s not long before we’ll see you at Gen Con, but we’re not coming empty-handed! In addition to all our recent releases, we’ll have some materials making their world-wide debut at the booth.

  • Savage Worlds Counters—Help keep your games Fast! Furious! and Fun! with these die-cut tokens. There’s no easier way to track combat effects and options like Shaken, Wounds, Cover, Tricks, and Wild Attacks. Gaming is already fun, why not make it easy too?
  • Modern Minis for East Texas University and Degrees of HorrorWhether you’re fighting things that go bump in the small-scale night or you need to bring your Big Man on Campus down to 28mm, these minis really bring today to the tabletop. These figures are cast specifically for Pinnacle Entertainment Group from gorgeous sculpts by David Soderquist of Bronze Age Miniatures. Female sculpts include Cheerleader, Rodeo Queen, Activist, Geek, and Wild Child. Male sculpts include Jock, Local, Student, Gamer, and Journalist.
  • Bennies for East Texas UniversityThese custom poker chips could be used as counters or tokens for nearly any game, but we think they’re perfect for modern collegiate horror Bennies. It’s almost like we designed them just for that purpose! One set contains 20 chips in 4 styles, made from 11.5 gram ABS composite casino-style poker chips.

If you’re not going to be able to join us at Gen Con, don’t despair. You can preorder the ETU Miniatures and Bennies right now!

Join Clint and Jodi This Saturday in Raleigh and at Dragon Con

Savage Worlds Coming to a Town Near You!Our own Clint Black and Jodi Black will be at Event Horizon Games this Saturday, August 2. If you’re anywhere near Raleigh, North Carolina, looking for a Savage Saturday event, your dreams have come true!

Did I forget to mention you’ll also be getting Charles White of Fabled Environments, David Hardee and Dan Smith of Pirate Press running their Battle for Oz setting, and Paul Coulter of Event Horizon Games? And that there are rumored to be door prizes? I should remember to mention that.

If you’re planning a little farther out, watch for Clint and Jodi at Dragon Con, August 29-September 1, in Atlanta. While you’ll likely find Jodi at the Beautiful Brains Books and Games booth most of the time, you can find them both at the Savage Sunday Night event, August 31.

More Free Stuff for Savage Worlds at Gen Con

Pinnacle at GenConThe Gen Con Savage Worlds GM Swag Bag is expanding—Warning Label is adding decks of promo cards from their Cast of Cards line to the existing $20 coupon for Pinnacle products! All you’ve got to do is run 48 player-hours of Savage Worlds games, which you can do with two four-hour games for six people. Sounds pretty easy when you put it that way, doesn’t it?

Be sure to e-mail Jodi Black with your game title and code so you can have that sweet coupon waitin’ for you at the Pinnacle booth. Be sure to drop on by to see if there are any extras for the promo cards, too. You never know how long those will hold out…

Don’t forget to come by the annual Pinnacle Seminar, either. We’re scheduled for Saturday, August 16 at 3:00 pm in Victoria Station C/D. Be sure to check the program or the Studio 2 Publishing booth in case we get moved, though. Things happen, and we don’t want to miss you!

See you there!

Join Clint and Jodi Black at Storm-Con This Weekend

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouIf you’re still looking for weekend plans, this is your chance to catch Clint and Jodi Black at Storm-Con in Charleston. You can also catch Charles White of Fabled Enviroments, Pirate Press (the folks behind the upcoming Battle for Oz), several Savage Worlds games (including a Savage Saturday Night), and Clint’s ETU game.

That’s right, Clint’s running a preview game of East Texas University called Early Attrition. It’s the beginning of your freshman year at ETU, and you had to check in early because of a scheduling issue. There aren’t many other students on campus yet, and they’re showing a horror movie in the courtyard of the student center. You and your new friends have all decided to go since there’s not much else to do and the guy from student services guaranteed you’d be scared before the night was over!

Origins: Good News, Bad News

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouAs much as we all love Origins, unfortunately none of the Pinnacle staff is going to be able to join you in Columbus this weekend. Trust me, we’re probably sadder about it than you are.

On the bright side, though, our stuff will be there! Be sure to drop by the Studio 2 Publishing booth. They’re our publishing and fulfillment partners, and they’ve brought all the good stuff from the warehouse out for some fresh air. We’re willing to let it go to good homes for small, reasonable adoption fees. A more crass person might call that “retail sales,” but not me.

Another thing to look forward to is all the Savage Worlds gaming. It doesn’t sound like our absence has cut into the Savage Worlds offerings, and we’re all looking forward to hearing about your exciting experience on the Pinnacle web forums when you make it safely back home [with all those recently "adopted" books from the Studio 2 booth].

Don’t Forget Shane This Week at Phoenix Comicon

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouRemember to catch our own Shane Hensley at Phoenix Comicon. [I don't suggest the "salt his tail feathers" method of catching him—it doesn't work.] Come on out June 5-8 to catch his Deadlands panel. He’s happy to talk all about Deadlands RPG projects, the upcoming Xbox Originals Deadlands series, and anything else we’re up to. He’s also happy to sign anything [within reason] that you want to bring on by. Don’t miss out!

Catch Shane, Jodi, and Clint at a Con Near You!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouThe cycle of life is eternalApril showers bring May flowers, Mayflowers bring pilgrims, and summer brings Pinnacle out to conventions. You might have learned something else in middle school science class, but that’s what I got, and it’s true!

Shane Hensley will be at Phoenix Comicon. Come on out June 5-8 in lovely Upper Des Moines [Okay, it really is in Phoenix...you got me...] and say hi. Among other things, he’ll be hosting a panel with all the Deadlands news. Come on by and catch up on the RPG projects, the upcoming Xbox Originals Deadlands series, and anything else he lets slip.

Clint and Jodi Black will be at Storm-Con in Charleston, June 20-22. You can sign up for their gaming on Warhorn—that’s all the gaming, including the Savage Worlds games and even Clint’s game.

Savage Worlds: Deep in the Heart of Texas and On To France!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouAttention all you Lone Star Savages or folks who are otherwise planning on being in the Great State of Texas this weekend: you should plan on coming to Aggiecon 45, April  4-6, in College Station, Texas (home of Texas A&M University). Frequent Savage Worlds author and self-professed Texan Ed Wetterman is a guest of the convention. Other gaming luminaries such as Preston Dubose, Craig Largent, and Jerry Blakemore are also heavily rumored to be making appearances as well. Even if you don’t go for the gaming or guests, there’s always the chance there’ll be an eight-ton doughnut—I mean, it is Texas after all…

For those of you with a more continental bent, plan on catching up with Shane Hensley at BBE Con in Lyon, France on April 19. If you’re a French speaker or can operate a web translator, check out BBE Con web site for more information. While I suspect the odds of an eight-ton croissant are pretty slim, can you really take the chance that you’d miss one?
