The Last Parsec Kickstarter Rockets out of the Gates!

The Last Parsec Kickstarter Project The Last Parsec Kickstarter project is off to a stellar start!* Thanks to you, we funded in an hour and are currently a little over 500% funded.

With such a strong start, you’ve already unlocked a number of our Stretch Goals, including the original soundtrack The Jump by fan favorite Harry Mack, the customized Last Parsec Wild Die, and a cargoload of PDF files—custom GM Screen Inserts, the Enigma Equation adventure, digital ship maps, a dozen full-color full-page Last Parsec Character Archetypes, and the full-length adventure Pranec Pursuit!

With so many goals achieved and so many other good ones on the endless horizon, there’s never been a better time to join as a backer or to bring your friends to the party! Futile Position, Tales from the Savage Troll, and Halfway Station are all spreading the word through their blogs. We’re curious to see what sorts of different ways you can come up to spread the work on the The Last Parsec Kickstarter project. If you do something particularly creative, clever, or interesting, please be sure to drop Jodi Black a note and let us know!

If you’re still thinking about it, check out the latest The Last Parsec Wendigo Tale or the totally-free Last Parsec Primer. We know you’ll be back for more.

* You probably deserve an apology for that cheap wordplay. Unfortunately, my apolo-jet printer is out of ink right now. Check back next week.

The Last Parsec Kickstarter is Now Live!

The Last Parsec Kickstarter ProjectJoin us on a journey of exploration to the stars! As of 9:23 Pacific,* The Last Parsec Kickstarter project is live, and you can help us bring the brilliant future of man in space to your tabletop.

Faster-than-light travel has finally allowed humanity to spread beyond its lonely corner of the Milky Way. Explorers found millions of star systems, strange planets, and exotic alien races in the cold depths of space. Centuries later, trade, technology, and business thrive in the Known Worlds.

Live in an unparalleled age of cutting edge science, limitless frontiers, and hints of the mysteries of the universe itself. Travel beyond the familiar and find The Last Parsec.

For more details on The Last Parsec, the various reward levels, and the awesome product lineup—including three books, custom Bennies and minis, maps, and the double Adventure Deck—be sure to visit The Last Parsec Kickstarter project today!

For more about the behind-the-scenes action, check out the first Last Parsec Designer’s Diary. For a better feel for the setting, be sure to check out Wendigo Tales Season 3 (or read the news item below…).

* Shane has a special place in his heart for 9:23 and 9/23. It’s his birthday. Have a piece of cake in his honor. If you have space cake, so much the better!

More for ETU: Jack’s Back One Sheet and Spanish Character Sheets

Jack's Back One Sheet for ETURemember when we promised that we’d be releasing some more One-Sheets for East Texas University? We don’t kid around with Kickstarter commitments like that, and it’s time for the latest installment—Jack’s Back! Jack Brown returns to ETU after a few decades off. This time is going to be different, though—and different it is! But something strange is going on in his dorm, and it’s up to you to set things right.

What with East Texas University being so close to the border and all, it only seems fair to offer a Spanish ETU Character Sheet! It’s always great to see our friends in gaming using the Free Fan License to not only make wonderful things for your Savage Worlds games, but to share them with others. You folks really are the best!

Kronocalypse Kickstarter Begins

Kronocalypse KickstarterIf you’re a fan of dinosaurs, cyborgs, or cyborg dinosaurs, then you need to check out the Kronocalypse Kickstarter today. You even get knights and wizards dueling pirates on airships—seriously, what’s not to like?

Sneak Attack Press‘ newest setting includes all the races, Edges, Hindrances, and details you need to create a hero from the prehistoric, medieval, steampunk, or cyberpunk era. And you’re going to need these heroes to survive the Plot Point Campaign and set time aright before it all goes “awrong.” Don’t forget, these are the people who brought you this year’s ENnie Award-winning Broken Earth!

For full details on what’s included and the various backer levels, be sure to visit the Kronocalypse Kickstarter project today. After all, time waits for no man…or does it?

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).

Kickstart the Superheroic World of Daring Comics!

Daring Comics Kickstarter ProjectHelp start a whole new world of superheroics with the Daring Comics Kickstarter project! This four-color comic books setting for Savage Worlds comes from the creative team at Daring Entertainment and fully utilizes the Super Powers Companion (Second Edition).

The Kickstarter also includes the plans for multiple Mega-Event books. Think of them as a cross between a Plot Point Campaign and a comics cross-over story arc. Add one of those and—BAM!—you’re ready to start the high-flyin’ action.

The Daring Comics universe and Hellbrood (the first planned Mega-Event book) are definitely worth a look, so be sure to check out the Daring Comics Kickstarter project for full details on the books, the stretch goals, and some amazing make-me-a-part-of-it backer levels. It’ll be gone in a flash!*

*And that’s definitely with a lower-case f. We don’t need to be starting any super-trouble…

John Goff Wants You—At Gen Con!

Pinnacle at GenConTo be more accurate, he may be after your signature while he’s at Gen Con.

John Goff, author of Deadlands Noir, has been collecting the John Hancocks of as many Deadlands Noir Kickstarter backers as he can, using his own copy as an autograph book. If you’re going to be at Gen Con, be sure to drop by the Pinnacle booth (we’re with the Studio 2 Publishing booth) and catch him.

He doesn’t often get this far east, so your other opportunities to get your name in his book are slim. As a bonus, you’ll be one of the few people to see the face behind his anonymous profile picture.

So be sure to drop by the Pinnacle booth at Gen Con. [Cue the spooky music.] John will be waiting for you!

More for ETU/DOH Backers and Fans!

ETU ArchetypesIt’s a big day for East Texas University and Degrees of Horror backers! Both the ETU Adventure Generator and Off Radio (ETU fiction) are now freely available to you. If you didn’t have the chance to back the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter, these will both be coming your way later.

The ETU Archetypes are also available today. With twelve different characters (from jock to journalist and geek to rodeo queen) ready to go, including stats and figure flats, you’re ready to fill your ETU game with friendly freshman faces from the first! If you’re more of a three-dimensional purist, don’t worry—ten of the archetypes are the base models for the first batch of ETU Miniatures.

Are you still somehow on the fence? You should consider a career as a rodeo clown and be sure to catch the recording of Jerrod Gunning’s Savage Worlds GM Hangout tonight, July 15, for Beelzebubba, a live play demo of ETU!
