Pinnacle Convention Bits Round-Up

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouAre you ready for a really big convention announcement? Oh, that’s unfortunate—but I do have a few medium-sized convention-related bits for you, and I hope that satisfies your cravings.

Dragon Con was a blast. Savage Worlds products were flying out of the Beautiful Brains Books and Games booth. Clint and Jodi Black were on several well-received panels, and gaming in general and Savage Worlds in particular continue to grow every year. We had eight full tables at Savage Sunday Night, and a very good time was had. It’s always nice to catch up with folks you only see at the conventions, but this time I* got to meet Kristian Serrano (who I’ve only known electronically) in the flesh. Join us all there next year!

The legacy of Gen Con continues. The Misdirected Mark’s Gen Con Interviews, Part Two is now available. If you weren’t there, it’ll be like you were. If you were there, it’ll be like you still are (which is probably kind of creepy, really).

Plans are afoot for the annual Savage Worlds invasion at MACE. Their event submission is open now, and lots of talk at Dragon Con was about what we were all planning on running at MACE. Watch this space for more details as they come, and watch MACE November 7-9 in Charlotte, North Carolina, to catch at least Jodi and Clint Black and Joel Kinstle.**

There’s going to be some Savage Worlds gaming at Chupacabracon—at least two! While I’m sure there will be much more than that, both Shane Hensley and Clint Black are planning on attending. Shane will be running an East Texas University adventure called The Thing at Wilson’s Quarry which may finally dissuade college students from swimming in quarries for good. Clint will be treating people to his Sci-Fi original homage, Arctigator vs Crocosharkasaurus, with survival and better acting gigs both unlikely. Go ahead and mark your calendars for January 9-11, 2015 and catch them in Austin, Texas. You’ll be happier (and more likely to have some barbecue) if you do.

* Remember, if you see “I” in the updates, it’s me, Joel Kinstle. Pinnacle does not speak in some weird anti-royal non-we singular pronoun.

** Yes, that’s me again, but in the third person this time. All of you who have been victims of my editorial wrath may now feel smug for my lack of consistency.

Find Us at Game Storm, MACE West, and BBE Con!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouIt may be early, but we’re moving into that grand time of year we all know and love—convention season!

Game Storm in Portland (Oregon, not Maine or cement) will be hosting a one-two punch of Pinnacle excitement on March 20-23. You’ll get to see our own head honcho Shane Lacy Hensley and the marginally-elusive, always-interesting John Goff! Don’t let this chance pass you by. If you’ve got the chance to turn out, be sure to stop by!

If you’re on the other side of the country, be sure to catch Clint Black, Jodi Black, and Joel Kinstle at MACE West in Asheville, North Carolina, March 21-23. We’re always excited to attend the highly gaming-focused MACE family of conventions, and I’m sure you will be, too! Catch us there and let me know if I’m wrong [which, really, never happens…].

If those options aren’t European enough for you, you’re in luck! You can also catch Shane at BBE Con in Lyon, France on April 19. If you’re a French speaker or can operate a web translator, check out BBE Con web site for more information.

MACE a Smashing Success for Pinnacle!

Savage Worlds Tenth Anniversary PartyWe can’t really say enough good things about MACE 2013 this last weekend!

Savage Saturday Night was a blast, and the special Savage Worlds Tenth Anniversary Party hosted by MACE and Beautiful Brains Books & Games was a cupcake-filled spectacular! The range of games—the variety of applications you, our fans, find for Savage Worlds—continues to amaze us.

But don’t just listen to me yammer on about it. Check out the photos of “Chaos” Steve Todd’s highly-acclaimed Weird Wars Rome game. Or watch our Facebook or Google+ pages for more photos. Or visit the Pinnacle Forums for a general MACE follow-up discussion!

We all had a great time, and we look forward to seeing you at more conventions in the coming year!

Join Pinnacle at MACE This Weekend!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouWill we be seeing you at MACE 2013 this weekend? You’re not going to want to miss it!

Help us celebrate Savage World’s tenth anniversary with a Savage Saturday Night featuring a special “post-party” at midnight hosted by MACE and Beautiful Brains Books & Games. With this many Pinnacle staffers, it’s a sight to be seen! Watch for:

We’ll see you there! [With so many of us working on a cooperative Notice check, we almost can't help it!]

Celebrate 10 Years of Savage Worlds at MACE!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouNow’s the time to plan ahead for what may be the highest concentration of Pinnacle staffers in a very long time—MACE 2013! Don’t believe me? Here’s a list:

We’ll be all over the place, but especially at Savage Saturday Night! In honor of Savage Worlds’ tenth anniversary, MACE and Beautiful Brains Books & Games will be hosting a special “post-party” at midnight. I hear there’ll be cake, soda, laughter, reminiscing, and the ritual watching-Steve-fall-asleep—all things not to miss!

See you there!

* I have no doubt she’ll tell me that should be “Force With Which to Be Reckoned”!

See Shane, Clint, Goff, Cheyenne, and Rock City!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouAs exciting as it might be, you won’t be seeing them all in the same place any time soon.

You still have time to catch Shane Hensley and Clint Black at MACE 2012, November 2-4, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both Shane and Clint will be running games, and Beautiful Brains Books & Games will give away the last two slots in Shane’s special charity Deadlands Noir games during their Thursday Night Chat this week. There’s also more Savage Worlds games than you can shake a stick at, a big ol’ Savage Saturday Night, and even some Savage Worlds panels. They even have other games at the convention, if you can believe that!

Need a little more time to get your schedule in order? Live on the west coast instead of the east? Maybe you should try your luck at ZOECon, November 9-11, in Tukwila, Washington. John Goff (most recently of Deadlands Noir fame) and the Hugo-award-winning Cheyenne Wright will be there and be happy to meet you, and the con’s being run by Dead Gentleman/Zombie Orpheus, the same folks who brought you The Gamers and Journeyquest! How can you pass that up?

Wish you had a handy reference for dates for our convention appearances? Pine no more! You can always check out our Conventions page for our upcoming and most recent convention appearances.

Of course, if you still want to see Rock City, it remains on Lookout Mountain in Tennessee.

Beware! We’re Coming for You!

Pinnacle Convention AppearancesThis fall is going to bring a bumper crop of appearances by Pinnacle folks at conventions. You can look for us at MACE in North Carolina, Con on the Cob in Ohio, and all sorts of other places.

Be sure to check our Conventions page (that’s under the News tab, by the way) for full details of who’s going to be where.

And just because we’re not listed to be somewhere, don’t count us out. With all of us cooperating on our Stealth rolls, we could be standing behind you right now. Go ahead. Look. If you dare…

 

Shane Hensley Coming to MACE 2012!

Shane and Clint at MACE 2012Have you ever wanted to meet our very own Shane Hensley, founder and illustrious leader? How about Clint Black, Core Rules Brand Manager? Plan ahead, and you’ll get that chance. They’ll both be at MACE 2012, November 2-4 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

MACE has always been one of our favorite cons, chock full of gaming, gaming, and more gaming—and always with a big ol’ Savage Saturday Night! Mark your calendars now, and we’ll see you there!
