Out of the studio and in the real world, our own Jodi Black was interviewed on Rage Quit Radio at Storm-Con. It’s definitely worth a listen.

ETU Goodies and News

Scavenger Hunt - A One Sheet Adventure for ETUTo celebrate the continuing success of the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter campaign, we just released Scavenger Hunt, a brand new One Sheet for the ETU setting! It’s all fun and games until you have to help your friend stop an interdimensional invasion. If you’re not up to the task, then something from somewhere is going to breach our realm in the middle of the gym, and there’s no way that’ll be good for that hardwood floor. Don’t forget, like all our One Sheets, Scavenger Hunt is totally free!

Speaking of success, you’ve rounded up enough of a crowd for the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter campaign to hit the next stretch goal, the Creature Feature: La Bruja. You’ll get all the details to bring these “lovely” señoritas to the party, including an adventure and Figure Flats!

You bring some more friends, and we’ll do the same. The next stretch goal is two pages of Figure Flats of the Heroes of ETU, including staff, faculty, students, and regular (or are they?) folks. Sign up today and bring a buddy, or just bring a buddy if you’re already on board.

Want to hear more? The ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter campaign is certainly generating a lot of talk, so I presume you do. This week, catch the ETU Edition of the Savage Worlds GM Hangout this Wednesday, June 4, 7:00 pm Pacific Time. Ed Wetterman will join the gang to discuss the finer points of horror gaming in Savage Worlds and the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter.

If you can’t catch that [or worry that Ed's dulcet tones may lead you to start scratching pentagrams in your oatmeal the next morning], check out Roleplayer’s Chronicle Q&A with the Creators of East Texas University and Degrees of Horror. See what Preston, Ed, and Shane have to say. Remember, in print, you always think you can look away in time…

Oh, and just like “real” college, the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter won’t last forever. You’ve only got until June 11, which is closer than you might think!

Beautiful Brains Last Chat This Thursday

Beautiful Brains Books and GamesBeautiful Brains Books and Games*—one of our most fervent retail supporters—will host the last of their weekly web chats this Thursday, January 30, 9:00 – 10:00 pm Eastern. After the last few years of new topics and guests every Thursday night, they’re going out with a bang—their last chat will be Shane Hensley’s first!

Don’t worry, nobody’s going away. Beautiful Brains Books and Games will continue to be on the web and at select convention venues, and we’re certainly not letting Shane wander off on an ice floe to vanish in the seaborne mists.** But this may be your last chance for a live web chat with Shane Hensley as the special guest of Clint and Jodi Black! And you never know who else might sneak into the shadows of the chat…

* For those of you big on formal disclosures, Beautiful Brains is probably such a big supporter because it’s run by Jodi Black, our Marketing and Licensee Manager, long-time Pinnacle supporter, and wife of our Savage Worlds Brand Manager Clint Black.

** Since he lives in Arizona, this is generally a pretty easy thing to keep from happening.
