A Doomtown: Reloaded Double-Shot

If you’re ever toe-to-toe with a gang of ornery undead hombres, we recommend reachin’ for the always reliable double-barrel shotty! Guaranteed to get the job done, pardner. (Our apologies ahead of time for the mess!)

This week we’ve unleashed our own double-shot of Doomtown delights certain to up the ante in both your Doomtown: Reloaded and Deadlands games.

First up, there’s the complete (and totally FREE) Doomtown: Reloaded RulebookThis highly-detailed book expands and explains all the game’s rules, including card types, actions, and how to gently convince your rivals into doing things your way. The disagreeable sorts can take a long dirt nap in Boot Hill instead. Doomtown: Reloaded is the follow-up game to the best-selling and award-winning Doomtown card game. This book requires the Doomtown: Reloaded base set to play.

For our Deadlands players out there, we present the Doomtown: Reloaded Deadlands RPG Conversion Book for just $5.99. Want to add some of Doomtown: Reloaded’s most notorious scoundrels to your Deadlands roleplaying game? This pint-sized pamphlet of paranoia contains some of the good, the bad, and the incredibly ugly. You’ll also find game information for several relics as well, all statted up and ready to cause plenty of mischief and mayhem.

The Deadlands RPG Conversion Book contains over 20 character, creature, and relic descriptions from the Doomtown: Reloaded card game for the Deadlands RPG. It requires that game to play, and the Savage Worlds core rules.

Happy Halloween from Pinnacle Entertainment

The Best of Horror Gaming Bundle for Savage WorldsWhether you’re spending tonight at your game tables staring down the horrors of the Weird West in Deadlands: Reloaded, crossing sabers with the Cabal in Rippers Resurrected, or taking your studies to a whole new level of terror at East Texas University, we hope you all have a very safe and Happy Halloween!

We know that real life can be pretty scary sometimes, but there’s nothing quite so cathartic as unloading your patented Hellstromme Industries Hellfire on a horde of the undead in Deadlands Noir or kicking in the rotted teeth of a gaggle of ghouls in The Goon™ Roleplaying Game! We love us some horror here at Pinnacle (in case you didn’t notice) and you can always count on us for a wickedly good time.

Have fun tonight, don’t eat too much candy (dibs on the peanut butter cups), and may all your Wild Dice Ace.

Happy “Savage” Halloween!
