Hero Lab—the award-winning character creation software—has added support for Deadlands: Reloaded—the award-winning RPG of the Weird West. This is the second setting for Savage Worlds that Hero Lab has made available, joining The Savage World of Solomon Kane.
Did we mention that both of those setting files are free downloads? That’s right, absolutely free.
So see what everyone’s talking about and make some spiffy characters of your own: check out Hero Lab for Savage Worlds today!
We’re down to the wire with the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter campaign, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. A large part of our Kickstarter plan was to gauge fan interest in the new setting. You fully funded the project in about three hours and have chewed through every stretch goal we’ve put out there, so I think it’s safe to say that you’re interested!
Speaking of stretch goals, we’re not done yet. You’ve already exceeded our content goals for the setting, but we thought there was still a little more we could give you. Check out the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter Updates for details on stretch goals for the last 48 hours. If you’re new to the Kickstarter, you can also find a recap of all the updates so far as well as all four parts of the illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy. [Update: You can also get the illustrated audio drama from Shane’s YouTube channel!]
If you want to really get into the setting, and I mean really get into it, we’ve added eight more Hardboiled backer slots to the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter campaign. At that level, you can become a real name in an unreal world. Beat feet if you’re interested buddy—those things go faster than a get-away driver on the lam!
And be sure to listen to Episode 64 of the Atomic Array podcast with special guest John Goff, lead author for Deadlands Noir. It’s their first show dedicated to Savage Worlds, and they get John to talk about the system, its origins, Deadlands Noir and the Kickstarter campaign, and even his days as a professional interrogator.
By any gauge, this project has been a wild success. We’re humbled by your outpouring of support, excited and energized by your enthusiasm, and really looking forward to turning our attention to development. You have our sincerest thanks.
Last week, we gave you downloadable wallpapers of the cover art for the upcoming Hell on Earth: Reloaded. While that setting might be full of heartache and misery, our web site isn’t.
By popular request, we’ve made more wallpapers available on the Hell on Earth: Reloaded Downloads page for all those wide-screen monitors out there. Enjoy your fancy technology while it lasts, partner. The day of reckonin’ is a-comin’, and maybe—just maybe—sooner than you think…
With just over a week left in our first Kickstarter campaign, Deadlands Noir, you’ve nearly met all our stretch goals, including expanding the setting with the Deadlands Noir Companion to Chicago, Lost Angels, and Shan Fan!
Visit the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter page for today’s updates and hear the fourth and final installment of the illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy.
If you missed Friday’s update, be sure to read Update #8 to hear about Deadlands Noir at Origins and see Cheyenne’s illustration of the technical evolution of the lightning gun!
You might think it cruel to whet your appetite like this, but you don’t know cruel…not yet, leastways. When a man can’t cross the desert without worrying about gettin’ his ride—and hisself—cut for parts, when the world is so irradiated that spirits are mutatin’, when there’s no hope on the burnin’ horizon, that’s a cruel place to be. Hell on Earth is coming, and this is just the beginning.
No, literally. Hell on Earth: Reloaded is coming. Not today, not tomorrow, and not any time we’re going to name right now, but watch here for more details in the months ahead.
And this really is just the beginning. Specifically, we’re giving you the cover art from the new book as downloadable wallpapers. Visit the Hell on Earth: Reloaded Downloads page to pick a size suited to you.
You best start gettin’ ready now, though. When things fall from the sky, worlds change forever…
We’re right into the half-way mark on our first Kickstarter campaign, Deadlands Noir, and the enthusiasm remains overwhelming. This morning, our stretch goals were like shell casings in a highway gunfight—all used up and behind us!
Unlike some of the back-bayou judges, we wouldn’t just leave you hangin’. Check out the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter page for today’s updates, including the third installment of our illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy and our new stretch goals. If you need a hint, just remember that the world might not turn out to be as small as you thought, but that probably means there’s more trouble out there with your name on it.
For anyone that missed it, be sure to read John Goff’s Update #6: Mystery and Investigation from last Friday for a little insight into Deadlands Noir and his own murky PI past.
Last week we launched our first Kickstarter campaign with Deadlands Noir, and you were more supportive and excited than we’d imagined. After a touch more than three hours, we shot through our original goal like a wet paper range target!
We added a series of stretch goals last Friday, and as of today we’re past all but one—including the Deadlands Noir custom dice set previewed here—with 22 days left to go! There’s a new stretch goal in today’s Kickstarter update, and it’s based on number of supporters, not cash. You, too, can make a difference!
The second installment of our illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy goes live (or something very similar) on the Kickstarter page today. We left Harvey Jenkins in a precarious position on the worst side of the Bloody Ol’ Muddy’s delta. Find out how ol’ Harv’s doing—it might be the only mystery New Orleans ever gives up.
If you missed it last week and want more details on Deadlands Noir, check out last week’s new article Deadlands Noir—The Secret Setting Revealed! or the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter page.
Guess Who’s Coming to Donner is an adventure for Deadlands that takes you into the unseasonably wintry Truckee Pass. If that doesn’t sound familiar, that may be ’cause it’s best known for the last lost group, the Donner party.
Guess Who’s Coming to Donner includes a short adventure as well as a full set of map tiles ready to print and use. Now you can have your posse right where you want ’em!
Pull up a chair, loosen your belt, and tuck into terror!
Rabbits may be cute, furry, and good luck unless you’re a garden crop, but jackalopes come armed with the horns of a dilemma. Can your posse survive the cloud of bad luck they bring across the Weird West?
The prairie tick swarms proved danger ain’t gotta’ be big, partner. These adorable li’l jackalopes prove it ain’t gotta’ be ugly, neither.
So as you go hoppin’ down the Chisholm Trail, don’t forget that Reaper’s full Savage Worlds miniature line may be comin’ with you. Best you see the whole range today in the light than tomorrow in the darkness, eh?
The year is 1935. New Orleans is one tough lady of a town. Some say her blood-red lipstick hides a heart of gold, others say it’s black as a killin’ bruise. Colorful, but a smart man don’t say nothin’ if he can avoid it—best to let the deadly secrets of the streets roll down the gutters like dirty rainwater.
This hard-boiled new setting brings the gritty history of the Deadlands world into the 1930s, giving you the shades of gray only a world of noir can deliver. Study the dangerous art of private detection in the city of New Orleans, solve whodunnits where both suspects and victims shoot back, venture into the gator-filled sludge of Louisiana’s deadly bayous, and learn just what the killer known only as “Stone” is doing in the Big Easy.
Deadlands Noir is also our first foray into Kickstarter. Even if you’re somehow not interested in the dizzying array of fabulous perks available, be sure to check out the first installment of the illustrated audio drama Hard Boiled in the Big Easy.
Since we first leaked a teaser about the new setting last Tuesday, we’ve been running a contest on our Facebook page to guess the name of the new setting. Give it a look-see for an explanation of the various clues and whether anyone guessed it correctly.
