Pinnacle and Savage Worlds at Gen Con
Origins is now behind us, and Gen Con is coming up fast. Be sure to mark your con-calendars with a few important seminar times!
- PEG Seminar—3:00 pm Saturday, Crowne Plaza Grand Central Ballroom A/B
Come on in and sit a spell with the fine folks here at Pinnacle in the swankified new space con organizers gave us! Catch up with what we’ve been up to, find out secrets of what’s coming next, and see how everything is going. History suggests that Shane will let at least a few things slip that he shouldn’t, so be sure to get a front row seat!
- Savage Worlds Licensee Seminar—4:00 pm Saturday, Crowne Plaza Victoria Station A/B
That’s right, the licensees get their own time this year. Just head over to Victoria Station (where the PEG seminar has been in recent years) to stick around and see what all Savage Worlds goodness is coming your way from all our gaming friends and allies.
Oh, and there’s all that Savage Worlds gaming. Be sure to check the program for the games you want, and be sure to let our own Jodi Black know what games you’re running. And, of course, don’t forget the amazing Sixth Gun RPG game run by Cullen himself on Thursday evening at 4+ Star Rock Bottom Brewery—check the Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter for full details.
See you in Indy!
Packs! Kickstarter Launches
The Builders created the Ratlair for a purpose unknown to the nine hordes. The labyrinthine mystery holds countless secrets and mortal dangers—especially for a rat like you! Devilish traps and wild creatures threaten your life at every turn, with only your pack between you and certain death.
The nine hordes—extensive rat family lines—populate the Ratlair, each with its own specialties, values, and quirks. Each knows the songs of its heroes as well as the stories of heroes known to all. While there is disagreement and fighting about nearly every aspect of rat culture, each horde knows that, in the end, they are social creatures, and society alone ensures their survival.
Join Prometheus Games‘ Packs! Kickstarter project to bring their German fan-favorite game to a new language and a new system. With your help, the world of Packs! will be brought to English for the first time as well as given full support for play in Savage Worlds! Be sure to check out the Packs! Kickstarter today.
Clockwork Dreams Comes to Savage Suzerain
Enter Mechadia, a realm of Suzerain where idyllic sylvan glades merge with mechanical wonders. Airship pirates hide on floating islands. Begoggled goblins run amok in steam-powered brass and steel. Brownie alchemists seek new ways to harness the pulse beyond the clouds. But the trolls toil restlessly to keep the great gears turning smoothly. Fey lords and ladies vie for rulership over the fledgling realm, and lines are being drawn in the copper dust. The fey are gearing up for mischief—do you have the brass to join the game?
Clockwork Dreams brings you a new realm for Savage Suzerain, with everything you need to craft a character unique to this setting—a wealth of background information, a Plot Point Campaign for Novice characters, heaps of Savage Tales, and stats for all manner of new NPCs and critters. Be sure to pick it up today in PDF, print-on-demand, or a combo! If you’re just clockwork-curious, don’t miss the completely free Clockwork Dreams Primer to whet your steam whistle.
