Things start out small—and simple—enough. Soon, your missing person’s case involves murder, magic, and mayhem. Soon, it becomes a diabolical tale of corrupt politicians, the Black Hand, and deep secrets as old as the Big Easy itself!

Weird Wars Rome stretches beyond the confines of recent electronic PDF releases and breaks into the world of physical products! With a shipping date of mid-December, everyone can now literally put their hands on several Weird Wars Rome products.
First and foremost, the Weird Wars Rome core book is available in both softcover and limited-edition hardcover, as well as several bundle options to get print and PDF copies together at a significant discount! Become a part of a history darker than you know in an Empire more hard-fought than you ever imagined.
Every good leader has things he must know—and secrets he must keep! The Weird Wars Rome GM Screen will help you do exactly that. As battle rages across the three-sided landscape facing your players, all the most important charts, tables, and references will be quickly at hand. The 32-page Nox Germanica adventure—a desperate tale of blood and battle with rebellious barbarians and their sinister allies—is also included.
Sturdy, double-sided, erasable poster maps will also be shipping. Choose from either a Frontier Fortress/Village or the Druid Circle/Village to bring your Weird Wars Rome—or any other—game to life on the table!
And how can you seek the blessing of Fortuna without paying her homage? Our customized Weird Wars Rome Dice would be most pleasing to both of you! Five Roman red dice with Imperial gold numbering comes with a custom Weird Wars Rome Wild Die to complete the set.
With a shipping date of mid-December, they’re the perfect gift for Saturnalia (or any other holiday you might celebrate around that time)!
Weird Wars Rome continues to expand with new places to visit and more things you may never want to run into!
The Weird Wars Rome map series brings you four new 24 x 30 full-color PDFs, ready to be printed with or without grids, scaled to fit your 28 mm miniatures. For even more versatility, the buildings all have versions with and without roofs to help you bring the action inside or maintain the mystery as you choose!
The Roman Fort brings you a stronghold of the Legions that could be anywhere within the Empire. Village 1 and Village 2 could be any rural settlement from Italia to distant Britannia, and they can be combined to provide a larger settlement. Finally, go deep into the Celtic or Germanic wilds for the Standing Stones, a representation of the mysterious menhirs of superstitious barbarians!
Weird Wars Rome Creature Feature: The Hydra takes you straight to monsters that have rivaled Hercules himself—the dread hydras that lurk in unlucky swamps, rivers, and lakes. You’ll find statistics for several varieties of the multi-headed beasts—including the fearsome gargantuan Lernaen hydra—Figure Flats to represent the terror on your tabletop, and five Savage Tales to bring the legends to hungry, horrifying life!
In one week alone, you have something to run from as well as somewhere to hide. Perhaps with the blessings of Fortuna, that will work out well for your Legionaries…
It’s that time of year here in the U.S. That time when we celebrate Thanksgiving and say thanks for so many things—our health, our families, our friends, and the patience of an increasingly-connected world that may not celebrate Thanksgiving now (or even at all) as we wax on about it.
And while we at Pinnacle are thankful for the full run of things that everyone else is, we have one special thing to be thankful for that nobody else really has—you. You, our fans, are something we’re always truly thankful for and strive to never take for granted. It’s your enthusiasm that keeps us writing, editing, and laying out books on those days when it actually feels like work. It’s your support that lets us keep writing, editing, and laying out books on those days when it’s unfettered joy.
For everything you do, we offer our simple and truly sincere thanks. May your holidays be as happy as the year you’ve given us.
Weird Wars Rome continues to expand with more support materials to flesh out an empire to the last man and the furthest corners!
Meet those who would stand with and against the glory of the Rome! Weird Wars Rome: Heroes of Rome is a set of Figure Flats that brings you dozens of legionaries, auxilia, and characters who live to defend the honor of an empire. Weird Wars Rome: Enemies of Rome supplies a wretched lot who would watch true civilization burn—Britons, druids, Germans, Dacians, Greeks, Nubians, and the like. Both sets of Figure Flats include a mix of flat figures, such as cavalry or vehicles designed to allow other figures to go on top, and stand-up figures that can be assembled in several ways.
After meeting both friend and foe, let Weird Wars Rome: The Half-Set Sun take you to the far-flung corners of Aegyptus, a land of mystery and antiquity, ancient gods and goddesses, mysterious temples and tombs, and extreme environments. Can you and the century under your command retake lost territory from the Nubians that have flooded in as the Nile has finally receded? Will you find the cause behind such an inconceivable violation of Rome’s sovereign border?
The rise of the Empire has not yet ended. Watch here for further news of the growth of its glory!
Your happy day is here, new subjects! Your desperate dreams that the glory of the Empire might find you in the uncivilized wilderness* are coming true! On this day, many great things are made available to you—four new releases in the Weird Wars Rome section of the Pinnacle Web Store—with more to come soon!
Weird Wars Rome: Archetypes is a twin set of Legionary Archetypes for your Weird Wars Rome game. One set is heroic, while the other simply isn’t! Not only does this give you a wider range of choices, but it also highlights very different characters from a small pool of statistics.
Weird Wars Rome: Res Romana gives you a quick immersion in the class and religion of ancient Roman society, as well as optional Auguries rules (and their effects on Mass Battles).
The Weird Wars Rome Creature Feature: The Cyclops brings you eye to massive eye with these monocular giants of the ancient world. Get statistics for both the savage cyclops and cyclopean titan, their magical artifacts, figure flats, and five Savage Tales!
Weird Wars Rome: Wellspring brings you to Britannia in 166 AD, where the painted barbarians attack by day only to blend into the underbrush, while something far less natural attacks by night, blending into the darkness. Make a stand at Hadrian’s Wall and defend the Empire from the foul sight, smell, and possibly magic of the Picts.

If you were paying close attention, you might’ve noticed when we turned our own part-time editor Jodi Black into our Marketing Manager. While we still let her flex her editing muscles and stop us from confusing “you’re,” “your,” and “rhinoceros,” she’s also been busy spreading us across the blog-o-web-o-sphere-o-tubes.*
You want to follow us on Facebook? Not a problem. You want to join us on Google+? You can do that, too. Could only be happier following Pinnacle on Twitter? Wait no more! You can find and follow us more places than ever now!
Are you more of a web traditionalist? You can always find us here at the home page or sign up to have the Tuesday updates sent directly to your e-mail. We’re here for you.
* That’s a thing, right? Maybe this is why I’m not the Marketing Manager…
All you gotta’ do is head out to bloody ol’ Kansas—a peaceable place is there ever was one—and sign a few papers. In a week, the place’ll be yours. Well, it’ll be yours if it don’t haunt you to death, if old feuds don’t unearth themselves to claim a few more victims, and if Black River don’t get a hankerin’ for the family plot. Everything should go off without a hitch.
But you might want to bring a few friends, just in case. This is the Weird West, amigo, and the only earth the meek inherit comes in six-foot-deep plots, one stone to a customer.
The custom Deadlands Noir Dice Set is now available to everyone—not just the privileged few that know the special handshakes of the swankiest speak-easies!*
These little jewels are tailor-made for Deadlands Noir. The main polyhedral set hearkens back to days of frosted glass windows and white glove service—and to the murky nature of truth and justice in a dirty city’s smoky shadows. The custom Wild Die is all about the business—the business end of a pistol embossed into a stark black-and-white die that don’t take guff off nobody!
This is finally your chance for a set of rocks any dame would want to get her hands on. Don’t miss it!
* By which, of course, I mean the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter backers.
Would you like to see the Savage One-Sheet Crypt of the Scaled Ones? How about Death Worm, Old Todd Passage, or even Sinister Sorority Secret? They all come with characters, figure flats, and maps, and they’re all free!
The only way to get your paws on these goodies is to find them at an official Savage Retailer. Check the Savage Retailer page for the store nearest you.
If you don’t spot one, don’t lose heart. The Savage Retailer program is still very new, you can help spread the word by sending your local stores to the Savage Retailer Registration page, and you’ll probably need that heart for something important later!
If you’ve got any questions about the Savage Retailer program, shoot a note to our new Marketing Manager Jodi Black for more details!
