Exclusive One-Sheets at Savage Retailers!

Savage Retailer Exclusive One SheetsWould 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!

Deadlands Novels in the Tor Pipeline!

DeadlandsWatch for Deadlands coming to the shelves of your favorite book store! Pinnacle Entertainment and Visionary Comics have reached an agreement with Tor Books to publish original novels set in the world of Deadlands! The initial deal is for three novels, with authors including best-selling Jonathan Maberry and Jeff Mariotte.

Jeff Mariotte, author of Season of the Wolf and writer/creator of the horror western comic book Desperadoes, said, “Deadlands is a terrific universe, rich with story possibilities and right up my alley. Getting to write short fiction and comics based on Deadlands was a treat; getting to be part of the process of bringing that world to life in novels for the first time—as a writer, and behind the scenes—is an honor and a fantastic pleasure.”

Shane Hensley added, “It’s been such a joy watching Visionary play in our sandbox. We truly consider them partners in growing and expanding the Deadlands universe. Now Jonathan Maberry and Jeff Mariotte get to really dig deep and explore the world in the kind of depth you only get with full-length novels, and we’re as excited as anyone else to see what they do.”

Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker award-winning author said, “I’m really excited about writing Deadlands: Ghostwalkers, a balls-to-the-walls alt-history steampunk supernatural shoot-‘em-up action western. With zombies. I think I was genetically designed to write this kind of book.”

Pinnacle Celebrates Labor Day Weekend with Gaming!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouLabor Day weekend is a time of celebration here in the states, and—for some of us, at least—that means game conventions!

Our own Shane HensleyEd Wetterman (one of the main ETU: Degrees of Horror developers at 12 to Midnight), and Tim Brown (of Dark Sun and Dragon Kings fame) will be at TactiCon in Denver. See what may now be the largest Savage Saturday Night in the world!

If, for some weird reason, you don’t come see us, then enjoy the long holiday weekends with friends, family, and festivities on your own! If you can’t have fun with us, just be sure you’re having fun!

India MikeAnd if you weren’t able to come to Gen Con, Roo Sack Gamers has posted the audio of the Pinnacle Seminar. But if you get only one thing from the Pinnacle Seminar, it probably needs to be this picture* of Evil Mike.
