Savage Worlds Licensee Kickstarter Round-Up

New from the Savage Worlds LicenseesIt really warms our hearts to see so many amazing Savage Worlds Licensee Kickstarters up and running right now. For those looking to spend a little extra pocket money, here are a few current standouts:

Devil’s Run Roleplaying Game

In a maelstrom of carnage and destruction worthy of a Mad Max movie, the Devil’s Run setting exploded onto the scene with the high-octane fun of the Devil’s Run: Route 666 board game and subsequent Hell’s Highway expansion, but the thrill of the ride is far from over!

Red Scar Publishing and Marc Langworthy are now set to blow the doors off the events that laid waste to continents, reshaped the global arena, and gave rise to new powers and factions through the engaging medium of a tabletop roleplaying game.

Their current Kickstarter will fund the production of the Devil’s Run Roleplaying Game core book: a lavish, softcover rulebook that will empower both GMs and players alike with the ability to explore the setting in more detail than ever before. Put the pedal to the metal and drive over to their Kickstarter page today to check out all the amazing pledge levels and add-ons.

What if a popular series of stories about a young wizard had been written by H.P. Lovecraft?

As a student at the prestigious H.P. Lovecraft Preparatory Academy, you’ll uncover conspiracies, deal with bullies and uncaring professors, explore dangerous steam tunnels, study for exams, escape from horrible monstrosities that humanity was never meant to see, and try to avoid an extended stay at Arkham Sanitarium. And that’s just orientation week!

Click here to visit the H.P. Lovecraft Preparatory Academy Kickstarter page and help Third Eye Games reach $10,000 to unlock the Savage Worlds version of what’s sure to be a very fun and freaky setting!

Kung Fu Animals (Save the World)

From Jason L. Blair (Streets of Bedlam) and FunSizedGames, Kung Fu Animals (Save the World) is a fast, furious, and fun setting for Savage Worlds that gives players the tools to create their own wild universes where semi-human characters become the world’s greatest heroes. If you’re a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesThunderCats, and Kung Fu Panda, Kung Fu Animals (Save the World) is for you!

As with all Savage Settings, Kung Fu Animals (Save the World) is all about getting you to the table and Kung Fu fightin’ as quickly as possible. To read more about the setting and to see what else Jason and company have in store for it, check out the Kung Fu Animals (Save the World) Kickstarter page.

Melting Point Publishing

Melting Point Publishing is a Savage Worlds licensee that is currently looking for a little financial support to get some new projects off the ground. Pledge now to help them release adventures like The Krell EffectCarjackedHammer of Fate, and much more. Visit their Kickstarter page today where you can watch their video presentation and check out all their pledge levels and stretch goals.

Terror from the Black Isles

Every goblin knows to be careful sailing on Basin Bottom’s Sea, especially around the Black Isles. Of course, no one knows what’s actually on the Black Isles as no matter how far you sail you can never seem to reach them—until now. What strange creatures and unearthly terrors await you on the Black Isles?

Terror from the Black Isles is the third book in Rebel Minis’ Dark Hold Goblin Adventures series. The book is fully compatible with the Savage Worlds game system and contains a full adventure, locations, new equipment, creatures, and a brand-new racial template (not saying it’s Duckmen but…)


Licensee Spotlight: Feral Gamers

If Lovecraftian horror is your oozing, slime-filled bag, be sure to take a peek at the Kickstarter for The League of Seekers from Savage Worlds licensee, Feral Gamers.

The League of Seekers is a horror RPG set in an alternate, 18th century Europe. The Age of Enlightenment has begun. Science and religion jostle for control over the masses. A mad king sits upon the throne of England. Monsters terrorize the peasants in France. The forests of Eastern Europe harbor beasts from folktales and legends. The Ottoman Empire has begun to lose its grip, and to the south, a sleeping god stirs, his dreams scratching at the thin veil that separates reality from the nightmare.

The player characters are part of a secret society called The League of Seekers, invited because of their skills and knowledge. The characters are sent to vanquish the horrors, thwart cults, and banish the cosmic terrors that wish to control the world. The League of Seekers is part Lovecraftian horror and part European folklore and draws influence from movies like Brotherhood of the Wolf and The Libertine, as well as computer games like Bloodborne.”

Visit The League of Seekers Kickstarter page and pledge your support (and your unwavering, eternal allegiance) today!


Happy Holidays from Pinnacle!

2017 was an exciting year for Pinnacle with three successful Savage Worlds Kickstarters including The Goon™ RPG, Fear Agent™ RPG, and, of course, The Savage World of Flash Gordon™. We also took our first triumphant foray into the card/board game Kickstarter market with Doomtown Reloaded (with the help of our good friends at Pine Box Entertainment).

As for Flash Gordon™, we’ll have preorders open soon for those who missed out on the Kickstarter, but right now, we’re working to get the first PDFs into the hands of our generous backers.

We also want to take a moment to thank all those awesome streamers out there who really embraced Savage Worlds on their Twitch channels in 2017 including the regular Friday night forays into the Weird West with the WildCards gang on Saving Throw, and the Happy Jack’s RPG Podcast group who have been playing Rifts® for Savage Worlds as well as Pirates of the Spanish Main.

So what do we have planned for 2018? Well, the Savage Worlds machine is currently chugging away behind the scenes (that means all of us banging on our keyboards) in hopes of bringing you the next version of Savage Worlds (codenamed “Savage Worlds Black”), followed by updated versions of both the Fantasy and Horror Companions, as well as updates and re-releases of the Deadlands Player’s Guide and Marshal’s Handbook. Note that no dates are set in stone yet, so watch this space for all the deets!

From all of us here at Pinnacle Entertainment, Happy Holidays and may all your Wild Dice Ace in the New Year!

A Whole Lotta’ Kickstartin’ Goin’ On!

Savage Worlds KickstartersOur many amazing licensees never cease to amaze us with their incredible products, whether custom settings for Savage Worlds, useful apps, or even non-specific accessories to augment the gaming experience. With so many items currently on (or heading to) Kickstarter, we thought we’d share a bunch of ’em with you in case you’re looking for some worthwhile ways to spend that hard-earned moola.

With just a couple days left in its Kickstarter campaign, The Cold Cash War (Battlefield Press, Inc.), based on the novel by Robert Asprin, is looking for your support! In this unique setting, you play a government agent, mercenary hired by a corporation, an information broker, or a corporate executive. Get involved in corporate espionage, assassination, or even just stomping the enemy. Be sure to check out all the generous add-ons including several other Savage Worlds products produced by Battlefield Press, Inc.

From Loxley, Inc. and legendary designer, Frank Mentzer (Dungeons & Dragons), Empyrea is a classic fantasy RPG setting with roots going all the way back to the 1970s! Loxley, Inc. has launched a Kickstarter to fund the publication of this setting for a number of tabletop RPG systems including, of course, Savage Worlds! Empyrea is designed and illustrated by some of the biggest names in roleplaying game history and it promises to be something very special, indeed!

Fans of dieselpunk (think 1920s-1950s) will want to check out Frozen Skies from Utherwald Press. Frozen Skies is set on the continent of Alyeska, an icy frontier plagued by savage beasts, cut-throat sky pirates, harsh weather, and eons old dark secrets. Despite these many dangers, Alyeska is worth exploring, chiefly for the ruins and artifacts of the Ancient Terrans buried beneath the ice and for a valuable mineral that is the fuel for a new Industrial Revolution that the world finds itself on the cusp of… but only if the new technology can be made viable.

Titan Effect (Knight Errant Media) is set in a contemporary world where psychic spies clash with genetically-enhanced soldiers in a secret war in which the future of human evolution is at stake. Take on the role of a trained operative gifted with psychic abilities. Perform dangerous missions all over the world for the international clandestine organization known as the SPEAR, and fight against dangerous creatures and organizations. Survive long enough, and maybe you will be able to make a difference.

Finally, while not a Savage Worlds product per se (though fans of Rippers may want to take a look), Sigil Entertainment Group will soon be launching a Kickstarter for their much-anticipated Classic Horror Playing Card Deck at noon on Friday the 13th (can you think of a better date?) This 54-card deck features custom faces that bring Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, and other horror icons to life with lush illustrations and intricate design. The award winning creative team behind this deck includes: Aaron Acevedo, Arnold T. Blumberg, Chris Bivins, James Denton, Jason Engle, Bien Flores, and Cheyenne Wright. Be sure to Like the Sigil Entertainment Group Facebook page so you don’t miss out on your chance to own this phenomenal card deck.
