You can also get the Design Diary Volume 4 for more insights into the creation of The Last Parsec material. Remember, you can get all the Design Diaries, One Sheets, and other free resources (like the Last Parsec Character Sheet) from the Downloads section at the right of the Last Parsec page.

Last Week of the Last Parsec Kickstarter

The Last Parsec Kickstarter ProjectThere’s about a week left on The Last Parsec Kickstarter project, but we’re not going quietly into that good, long, cold night! Well, how could we “go quietly”—you’ve pushed us way past our goal (over 700% funded) and unlocked eight separate Stretch Goals already. Tell your friends, and we’ll see just how far we can push the boundaries of outer space!

Be sure to keep an eye out for more Last Parsec news and freebies (like the JumpCorp poster). Remember, in space, no one can hear you scream “I can’t believe I missed it!”—be sure to visit The Last Parsec Kickstarter while you still can.


Pinnacle Coming to Aethercon, RinCon, Great Falls, and MACE!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouLooking for the convention-sized fun of meeting the Pinnacle crowd without the travel? Join us this weekend for a roundtable discussion with the creators from Pinnacle Entertainment Group* Saturday, October 11, 2:00 pm ET. This event is being sponsored by Aethercon (coming in November) and will be available later as a podcast episode if you miss it live.

Not quite willing to forgo the fun of meeting us face-to-face? You can catch John Goff at the Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous in Great Falls, Montana. This is your chance to talk to John away from the rest of us, where he might be more willing to spill secrets and dish the juicy gossip! Don’t miss it.

If you’re a little more southerly this weekend, drop by RinCon in Tucson, Arizona. You can catch Pinnacle founder, president, and jefe-muy-mucho** Shane Hensley. In fact, he’s a featured RinCon Guest of Honor! If you’re in the area, drop by and say “Hi.”

And in the not-as-far-as-it-once-was future, you can find a bunch of us at MACE in Charlotte, North Carolina, November 7-9. But there’ll be more on that later.***

* Yes, that’s us, but who doesn’t like to talk about themselves in the third person now and again? “Not he,” says I!
** And a shout goes out to my Spanish teachers, who are probably now embarrassed to be associated with me.
*** I would like to dedicate this paragraph of two lonely sentences that both start with conjunctions to all my old English teachers who would shake their heads in disappointment if they were reading right now. To you! — Joel

Dream Dates and More from Pinnacle for Gen Con

Pinnacle at GenConThis is your chance to win a dream date with the Pinnacle crew! Pinnacle is supporting the ENnies Dream Date auctions this year by putting at least three of our cutest staffers on the block—Clint Black, Jodi Black, and John Goff. Yes, the auction just lists John, but we’ve decided to up the ante.

If you win, you’ll get to spend the evening with the Pinnacle crew, starting with the cocktail reception and continuing through the 2014 ENnies Awards ceremony at Gen Con Friday, August 15, in the Grand Ballroom of Union Station. We’ll also give you a free copy of every Pinnacle product that wins an ENnie this year—so you’re already guaranteed a copy of Weird Wars: Rome, winner of  a 2014 Judges’ Spotlight Award.

While all the Dream Date auctions support the ENnies, we wanted to do a little more. Pinnacle will make a donation to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children equal to the winning bid. Have a great night, get some free stuff, and help a truly worthy cause—bid today. The Pinnacle Dream Date auction lasts until August 9, then this once-in-a-lifetime chance will be gone forever.

If that’s not enough to get you to Gen Con, East Texas Horror Kickstarter backers will be able to pick up their Modern Minis for East Texas University and Degrees of Horror (find us in the Studio 2 Publishing booth), and everyone will have a chance to get their very own ETU Ravens t-shirt! Don’t slack, though—the Ravens t-shirt is a Gen Con exclusive! Oh, and there’ll also be the Savage Worlds Counters and Bennies for East Texas University (as we mentioned last week and has appeared in the BoardGameGeek forum).
