“Pestilence sends its regards.” – Ivor Hawley
As the Servitors prepare to reveal themselves during our July Kickstarter campaign to fund the Tales from the Epitaph supplement for Doomtown: Reloaded, Pine Box Entertainment will be running a number of world-wide Epitaph Series companion tournaments that you won’t want to miss.
Doomtown: Reloaded players in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Japan, the Netherlands, and the Philippines can gather ’round the tables, have a great time, and maybe walk away with some sweet, sweet prizes including the new Ivor Hawley promo card featuring incredible art by 2015 Marshal Winner, David Hammond.
Head over to the Pine Box Entertainment Epitaph Series page for a full schedule of events and up-to-the-minute information about the Tales from the Epitaph Kickstarter coming your way in July.
While the Kickstarter for our next Doomtown: Reloaded supplement, Tales from the Epitaph, is still a few weeks away, we’re already making a few plans for Gen Con 2017 that Doomtown fans won’t want to miss.
The Evil is a Choice event will be your chance to play Doomtown: Reloaded with the new Legends card type and score a limited, full bleed, Servitor promo card (just like Dr. Darius Hellstromme pictured here). You’ll swear allegiance to a Servitor of your choice and then fight for supremacy alongside them. The winner of this event will have the opportunity to choose the name of a Legend that will appear in a future release!
Follow the link to this upcoming event and get your tickets now to guarantee your spot at the tables!
Buckle your swashes (or is that swash your buckles) and get ready to head out on the open sea with Buccaneer: Through Hell and High Water, an all-new setting book for Savage Worlds from Licensee Fabled Environments and Yellow Piece Games now live on Kickstarter.
Buccaneer: Through Hell and High Water offers a gritty new set of rules for ship-to-ship combat, exciting new archetypes, unique creatures, and a host of Edges and Hindrances. All these elements combine to allow the players to immerse themselves in the ever-changing hell of the Caribbean.
Raise the black and set course for the High Water Islands, where fortune awaits the bold and giant, shark-headed, tentacled luscas hunt the depths of Davy Jones’ Locker looking for unsuspecting prey.
With just two weeks left to go in their Kickstarter, The Blackwood Errantry Codex, a fantasy setting and complete Plot Point Campaign inspired by American and German folklore, and high-flying wuxia action is currently 75% funded and looking for your help to blow past its goal.

Head over to the Kickstarter page now for podcast interviews, actual plays, and detailed blog posts, as well as a link to grab a complete (and totally free) Quick Start Bundle for The Blackwood featuring a 10-page Setting Primer, six pre-generated character archetypes, and four one-shot adventures comprising a year in the Blackwood!
Expand your adventures across the universe of Rifts® with the Rifts® Board Game from Rogue Heroes Publishing!
Now live on Kickstarter, the Rifts® Board Game lets you and your allies do battle with Coalition forces to defeat the campaign of tyranny being run by the Coalition States Mission Director.
While the game box comes packed with miniatures, character cards, tokens, dice, and a rule book, it has also been designed to be used with traditional 1″ grid maps meaning you can use any of our Savage Worlds combat maps for your own pitched battles in the ‘Burbs.
Not only that, if you help bring the Rifts® Board Game to life, you can add-on a whole variety of Savage Worlds items including the Savage Rifts® Starter Bundle for only $70 (retail value, $84.96), or a number of fully-compatible Savage Worlds map packs from settings like Deadlands Noir, Rippers, Weird Wars Rome, and Weird War I.
Five years ago, the Wild Card Creator, from Will Herrmann (published through his company, Journeyman Games), popped up on Kickstarter promising a new, easy, and intuitive program to quickly and easily generate Savage Worlds characters. The Wild Card Creator went on to become one of the most popular, must-have Savage Worlds accessories, eventually getting nominated for an ENnie Award in the category of Best Software. Today, Will continues to improve and expand the program for use with Pinnacle’s entire lineup as well as games and settings from 25 other licensees.
Plug in some basic info and output sleek-looking, form-fillable character sheets for most of your favorite games. You’ll be the envy of your game table. The Wild Card Creator is also completely modular to let you add your own races, skills, Edges, Hindrances, and more.
We’re shining our Licensee Spotlight on Journeyman Games, so take a journey over to their site now to test drive the FREE 30-day demo or pick up the complete Wild Card Creator for just 20 bucks, pardners!
Just last week, The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter met several stretch goals—a print showcasing the cast image, Cards of the Six, and Creature Features for The Great Wyrms and Griselda the Grey Witch. This week, we’ve hit [cue the suspenseful music] The Sixth Goal*—that’s right, we’ve added a set of Sixth Gun Archetypes and Sixth Gun Figure Flats: Villains + Heroes! There’s only one left right now…that we’re admitting to, anyway! Be sure to drop by the The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter to get a full list of the goals, backer options, and details.
There are also adventures available right now. That’s right folks, no waiting. You can get your own free copy of The Sixth Gun: The One-Hand Gang from DriveThruRPG or from the Pinnacle Web Store (right by the free and informative Triptych o’ Trouble on the Sixth Gun RPG page).
Maybe all that is why the The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter is now a Kickstarter Staff Pick! Or maybe it’s just because it’s sooo darned cool—I’m torn.
And if you’re thinking about joining in the game that Cullen himself is running at Gen Con, you might want to check out his game promise video. It sounds like a good time destined to end in tears, gunfire, and blood!
Don’t go into the world of the Sixth Gun RPG alone—be sure to bring your friends with you. Be sure to tell ’em about it today!
* I fully understand the Sixth Goal is not as impressive as the Sixth Gun, but it still sounds kind of cool, right? C’mon—humor me on this one.
This is your last chance to hitch your wagon to the Dead Men Walking Kickstarter duo. Both the Cackler Graphic Novel Kickstarter and the Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter close Thursday, March 5, at 7:00 pm Eastern Time.
Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter is about 900% funded and has met all the stretch goals we’ve put on it. Don’t let this fantastic Plot Point Campaign and general southwest setting book pass you by—back Stone before that dangerous varmint gets away from you, and remember the Cackler’s Challenge!
The Cackler Graphic Novel Kickstarter is about 150% funded and even met the Cackler’s Challenge! At 500 backers, we unlocked a slew of additional content for the Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter—that’s new Deadlands Reloaded Game Master Screen Inserts, The Lone Killers of the Southwest with stats and adventure seeds for notorious outlaws, and the never-before-published Deadlands Reloaded version of Dead Men Walking, the most lethal Deadlands adventure Shane runs! Don’t get left out in the cold when we start a new chapter in Deadlands history—back the Cackler while you still can!
To those of you who’ve already backed either or both of our Dead Men Walking Kickstarter pair, our sincere thanks. It’s your support and spreading the word that helps make all this possible, and we couldn’t be happier that you’ve come along with us for this ride deep into the Weird West!
There’s a little more than a week left for the Dead Men Walking Kickstarter duo, and we’re kicking it up a notch with the Cackler’s Challenge—if we get 500 or more total backers for the Cackler Graphic Novel, everyone who backed the Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter will get three special Stretch Goals! You know what they say about a rising tide floating all dead men’s boats,* right?
What’s the mysterious Cackler offering you, a backer of the Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter, for your support?
- First, you get a brand-spankin’ new set of Deadlands Reloaded Game Master Screen Inserts with gorgeous art from the main game, from the Cackler Graphic Novel, and from Stone and a Hard Place.
- Second, we’ll release a special supplement from Matt Cutter, author of Stone and a Hard Place and Deadlands Brand Manager, called The Lone Killers of the Southwest. You’ll get stats and adventure seeds for notorious outlaws Black Bart, Clay Allison, “Deacon” Jim Miller, Dave Rudabaugh, and John Wesley Hardin!
- Third, you get your hands on the rumored killer adventure that Shane runs exclusively at certain conventions where gamers have voluntarily signed up for mayhem and abuse—Dead Men Walking. Originally released for Deadlands Classic long ago, it’s been updated for Deadlands Reloaded but never published. Now Shane’s little secret—with the highest TPKs** of any adventure he’s run or published—can be yours. It’s worth the bloody price of admission!
So, help us spread the word. Pledge the Cackler Graphic Novel Kickstarter if you’ve not already, drum up your friends, recruit the neighbors, and hit the voting rolls of the dead.*** Beat the grinning goon’s challenge, and these fantastic awards join the ones you’ve already unlocked!
While we think everyone who likes Deadlands is going to want the Cackler Graphic Novel, too, here’s a few quick reasons why. You get to be in on the ground floor of something that will change the world of Deadlands for years to come in a 100+ page graphic novel written by Shane brought to life by legendary artist Bart Sears and colorist Michael Atiyeh. You get Deadlands Reloaded game statistics for the Cackler, his relics, and his goons, an original illustrated feature of the day that the Cackler and Stone met. You get the exclusive Doomtown Joker featuring the Cackler himself. Get it all, and get it today! Be sure to check out the Cackler previews available right now if you need any more encouragement.
* Okay, they don’t say that. But you get the idea. Two deaders rising together will be more dangerous and exciting than two rising separately….
** That’s Total Party Kills for those of you lucky enough not to have had one.
*** I’m not sure why, but the undead have really good polling numbers among Chicago voters….
We’re at the halfway point for the Dead Men Walking Kickstarter duo, and you’ve taken us all the way to tickled pink.*
The Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter is currently over 600% funded with every stretch goal we’ve put up accomplished with a speed that’d make Stone’s fast draw jealous. If you’re still on that barbed wire fence trying to decide, get on down. Not only does that have to hurt, but backing the Stone and a Hard Place Kickstarter is your best deal and may be the only way to get some of the special backer rewards and stretch goals. Check ’em out today!
The Cackler Graphic Novel Kickstarter funded, and we’re really close to the special Doomtown promotional card that unlocks at $25,000. And you don’t even have to wait to start reading The Cackler—Visionary is making Cackler previews available right now, with new ones posted fresh today. If you want to see the end, though, you best plan on becoming a backer!
* Sure, thematically, that ought to be “tickled blood red,” but that comes across too creepy for even me.
