Pinnacle and Savage Worlds at Gen Con

Savage Worlds at Gen ConOrigins is now behind us, and Gen Con is coming up fast. Be sure to mark your con-calendars with a few important seminar times!

  • PEG Seminar3:00 pm Saturday, Crowne Plaza Grand Central Ballroom A/B
    Come on in and sit a spell with the fine folks here at Pinnacle in the swankified new space con organizers gave us! Catch up with what we’ve been up to, find out secrets of what’s coming next, and see how everything is going. History suggests that Shane will let at least a few things slip that he shouldn’t, so be sure to get a front row seat!
  • Savage Worlds Licensee Seminar4:00 pm Saturday, Crowne Plaza Victoria Station A/B
    That’s right, the licensees get their own time this year. Just head over to Victoria Station (where the PEG seminar has been in recent years) to stick around and see what all Savage Worlds goodness is coming your way from all our gaming friends and allies.

Oh, and there’s all that Savage Worlds gaming. Be sure to check the program for the games you want, and be sure to let our own Jodi Black know what games you’re running. And, of course, don’t forget the amazing Sixth Gun RPG game run by Cullen himself on Thursday evening at 4+ Star Rock Bottom Brewery—check the Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter for full details.

See you in Indy!


Gen Con Game Changer!

Gen ConThe priority event deadline has come and gone, but you can still catch the train to fun town—register your games for Gen Con today! To all you hardy souls who’ve already submitted, our thanks. I bet your games fill up faster than a water balloon on a fire hydrant!

Unfortunately, we might’ve sold you a bit of a bum steer—not full-out Los Diablos hell-herd, but the fine folks from Gen Con registration had some clarifications for us.

  • Don’t start your Savage Worlds scenario titles with “[SVG]” after all. They have to strip that out on their end. Just be sure to select “Savage Worlds” as the game system, and you’ll be listed correctly.
  • Leave the company name field blank. Pinnacle isn’t sponsoring these as official events according to Gen Con’s criteria. If a blank field is going to keep you up nights with terror-filled flashbacks to standardized testing, consider working with a few other GMs to come up with a group name and primary contact person to manage your games. Gen Con will try to keep those fan-run events together in the listings.

Something that didn’t change, though, is that you need to e-mail Jodi Black, our Marketing Manager, with your game title and code to get details on goodies for you and your players. That includes the elusive invitation to hang with the Pinnacle crew on Thursday night.

If you’ve already registered, don’t worry. You just might see an edit or two to your registration, and now you’ll know why.


Get Priority Registration for Your Gen Con Games

Gen ConIf you want priority registration for your Gen Con games, you have to register your games by this Friday, February 6. You’ll get better slots* for your games before that. If you don’t make that cut-off, you can still register until March 13, but why wait?

Remember to start your Savage Worlds scenario titles with “[SVG]” so you’re easier to find, keep the titles under 30 characters for the best chance of making the printed program, and be sure to e-mail Jodi Black, our Marketing Manager, with your game title and code to get details on goodies for you and your players. That includes the elusive invitation to hang with the Pinnacle crew on Thursday night.

Register now, and watch for us there!

* Not only do the more popular slots go faster, but you have a better shot at getting your requested slots as a priority game registrant. Plus, you can call yourself a Gen Con PGR. Nobody will know what you mean, but, hey, it sounds cool.


Savage Worlds GM Round-Up for Gen Con 2015!

Gen ConIt’s that time again—time to get your games submitted for Gen Con 2015! Submissions are already being accepted, and placement priority goes to those with events in by February 6.

For those of you who are running Savage Worlds games at Gen Con or are interested in it, thanks! You’re the folks who will keep the Gen Con program full of Savage Worlds options and bring the game to new and old friends alike.

To sign up to run a Savage Worlds game, create your Gen Con account and submit your games via their web system. Be sure to start your scenario title with “[SVG]” so you’re easier to find. You’re more likely to make the cut into the printed program guide with a Scenario Title under 30 characters and a Scenario Description of 50 characters or less. This is where all that Twitter practice finally pays off!

If you’re running a Savage Worlds game, be sure to e-mail Jodi Black, our Marketing Manager, with your game title and code. She’ll set you up with details on goodies for your players and our thanks to you for running two or more games!* That thanks is definitely going to include at least coupons/gift certificates and an invitation to hang with the Pinnacle crew on Thursday night. Don’t forget that Gen Con also offers a free badge for GMs who meet their criteria.

We’ll have more details on all the Savage Worlds Gen Con doin’s as it gets closer. For now, be sure to get in your games and plan on seeing us there!

 

* Okay, what you’ve really got to do is run 48 player-hours of Savage Worlds games. If you run two four-hour games for six people (the most common set-up), that takes care of that (2 games times 4 hours times 6 players equals 48 player-hours). Sounds pretty easy when you put it that way, doesn’t it?
