Creature Feature: La Bruja Available for ETU

Creature Feature: La Bruja for ETUOur latest Creature Feature for East Texas University/Degrees of Horror brings you the bruja, the terrifying witch of Mexican folklore. Because, you know, studying for that Macroeconomics midterm wasn’t hard enough.

Creature Feature: La Bruja gives you everything you need to bring these twisted mistresses of the black arts to your ETU game. You get stats for both the most common and the more exotic varieties of bruja. You also get five full Savage Tales, ready to drop right into your game or play as stand-alone one-shot adventures!

Be bewitched (in a good way) with Creature Feature: La Bruja before you’re bewitched (in a very bad way) by the bruja themselves!

Wendigo Tales Infiltrates DriveThru Fiction

Wendigo Tales on DriveThru FictionThe full line of Wendigo Tales is now available from DriveThru Fiction as well as our own Pinnacle web store!

Did somebody give you a much-appreciated Pinnacle Web Store Gift Certificate for your birthday? We’ve still got you covered.

Either way you go, you can still get both full seasons of Wendigo Tales—Season One’s Weird Wars line-up or Season Two’s dive into the world of Necessary Evil. Both outlets carry the multi-format files you’ve come to love, with pdf, epub, and mobi (for Kindle) files included.

What are you waiting for? Get reading today!

Gen Con Wrap-Up

Pinnacle at GenConIt’s hard to believe Gen Con is a week behind us. Just because it’s past doesn’t mean you have to let it go, though! Smiling Jack’s Bar & Grill has a recording of the Pinnacle Seminar posted for you, and there’s an interview with Shane Hensley at Gen Con out there as well. Whether you couldn’t make it or just can’t let go, these are for you.

And speaking of stuff you really wanted to buy in the Gen Con Dealers’ Hall,* here’s your chance. The new die-cut Savage Worlds Token Sheet is available on the Pinnacle Web Store. These double-sided counters will help you mark all the status effects you could want in Savage Worlds, from Aim to Wound and everything in-between! As an added bonus, you can even get it free (with a $100 or more order, otherwise it’s a ridiculously reasonable $9.99). I don’t know how long this deal (or the supplies) will hold out, though, so buy your Token Sheet now before it’s too late.

* Yes, that segue really was just as smooth as you thought it wasn’t.

Several New Settings on the Horizons!

Savage Worlds: Coming AttractionsThere are several new campaign settings in the works for Savage Worlds. We’re not promising you’ll see all these in a week or two—in fact, I’d probably lose a finger if I typed any dates at all! But these are a taste of what’s in the works.

East Texas University lets you enroll in 12 to Midnight’s campy campus college horror setting. Degrees of Horror gives you a full-length Plot Point Campaign to go from freshmen all the way through graduation and discover the secrets of Pinebox and Golan County—if you survive. And just because the monsters don’t kill you doesn’t mean the exams won’t—passing finals can be a real killer!

The Last Parsec is our next Kickstarter, and it will take you into the depths of known space and beyond! Exploring new planets for JumpCorp, each new mission will make wildly different demands. Powered by the Savage Worlds Science Fiction Companion, each Plot Point Campaign focuses on a different planet. Scientorium will take you to an immense artifact containing unimaginable knowledge, undreamed technologies, and untold danger. Eris Beta-V is a magnificent ringed gas giant with numerous moons, each a world of its own, and a dense field of asteroids and debris. When a threat to the system arises, will it be something your team can handle? Leviathan introduces you to the most dangerous game in the Known Worlds, with mammoth lacerauns more massive and cunning than most would ever imagine. But a world untouched by civilization is a draw to more than just hunters, and the other may be far more threatening!

The Sixth Gun series comes to RPGs! The First of the Six strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads Perdition’s flames. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. And the Sixth is the key to rewriting the world. Are you ready to saddle up and ride into the savage world of The Sixth Gun? Based on the Eisner and Harvey Award nominated comic series from Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurt, and OniPress. Watch for more details to come, as well as more accessories, including custom miniatures of the characters from the comics!

The Savage World of Lankhmar brings Fritz Leiber’s gritty world of urban fantasy into Savage Worlds, shepherded by Tim Brown (of Dark Sun and Dragon King fame) and our own Shane Hensley (who wrote the Lankhmar boxed set for TSR back in 1997)! Watch for Lankhmar: City of Thieves, detailing the city itself and its most important players—including Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. Savage Foes of Nehwon brings you the most insidious threats—powerful sorcerers, terrible creatures, and ruthless villains—with adventure seeds and Savage Tales to really fill out a campaign. Savage Tales of the Thieves’ Guild is a thematically linked series of adventures that can be run individually or knitted into a Plot Point Campaign of their own, all churning around Cheap Street’s activities. And watch for accessories like premium metal miniatures and the Lankhmar Game Master’s Screen, too.

If you want some more details, check the Pinnacle preview flyer from the Gen Con booth or keep following the Pinnacle news here every Tuesday.

 

 

More Deadlands in More Places in More Formats!

Deadlands Weird West, Noir, and Hell on EarthWe teased some of what’s coming up with the Pinnacle preview flyer at the Gen Con booth, but here’s some highlights of what’s coming for Deadlands settings if you missed it.

Deadlands: The Weird West gets even more dangerous. Stone and a Hard Place is the third Plot Point Campaign for Deadlands, and it stars everyone’s favorite hard-nosed hero-killer—Stone. Enjoy a visit to the Weird West’s spaghetti Western roots with blazing six-guns and all the Tombstone (and tombstone) action you could want! Relics will bring you several objects that have become imbued with the powers and personalities of their users or the great events they’re part of. This collection will bring you the most potent, but beware—power always comes at a price.

Hell on Earth expands! The Hell on Earth Reloaded Companion has new Edges and Hindrances, more gear, expanded vehicles, and additional Arcane Backgrounds like bibliopaths, cyborgs, and witches! It’s not all good news, though, since it also includes an expanded Adventure Generator and more new horrors of the Wasted West. The Worm Turns brings you a full-fledged Plot Point Campaign with the shenanigans of the Iron Alliance and the Combine in the post-Reckoners Wasted West.
Lost Colony returns, with a relaunch from the team of John Goff and Cheyenne Wright. This all-new edition of the game is written from the ground up with everything you need to continue the story of Deadlands on the fantastic planet of Banshee and in space itself! The Lost Colony Companion will deliver a complete Plot Point Campaign and include more character options, Savage Tales, and creatures of Banshee.

The Big Easy card game brings the fast-paced world of the hardboiled detective in Deadlands Noir to a new format. For two to four players with a 30-60 minute play time, this new game from Deadlands Noir creators John Goff and Cheyenne Wright makes visiting the mean streets way more convenient, but no less deadly!

Watch here for more information as we have it, and check the Pinnacle preview flyer for more details.

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).
