The world is a more dangerous place than most people know, and it’s constantly on the brink of destruction. Someone has to save it, and there may as well be a little profit involved.
This is the world of Apocalypse Prevention, Incorporated (API). It’s filled with monsters and demons from other worlds, as well as this one—and some of them are your coworkers and partners. You and your fellow API agents apply your various talents—inborn abilities, magical arts, cybernetics, and old-fashioned fists—to keeping the world the way you like it.
The API Second Edition Kickstarter brings you an updated version of Third Eye Games‘ action-horror-humor-espionage setting, with both revised rules for the original system and full support for Savage Worlds! Be sure to check out the API2E Kickstarter for full details on backer levels, stretch goals, and rewards.

Summer has past, and the Savage September Sale is sure to follow. Act now before you’re left in the cold.
* In case the question comes up, yes, we do prefer that to any real stalking, except for maybe—just maybe—celery or silk…

The wide open plains of Deadlands’ Weird West are gettin’ even wider over at Visionary Comics. The folks at Visionary are nearly twice as many as they once were, with a near-doubling of their staff, and they’ve also added Jeff Mariotte (comic writer and author) and our own Shane Hensley (creator of Deadlands) to the team, expanding Deadlands in comics and prose alike!
Visionary will be working with IDW Publishing to publish their first trade, Dead Man’s Hand, collecting the Deadlands one-shots published by Visionary and Image Comics. These collect all of the “All-Star Westerns” into one volume.
There will also be a new line of novels published by Tor Books coming later next year. The first three books will be by New York Times best-selling authors Jonathan Maberry, Seanan McGuire, and Jeff Mariotte. Release dates are not available yet, but production is hummin’ right along!
And even with all that going on, Deadlands is still in active development for a live-action TV series—more details to come as we have them available.
It’s high time you join us on the High Plains!
Gun Metal Games has released Seeds of Discontent, a new adventure for Interface Zero 2.0.
The family farms of the King County Cooperative are trying to get by, but big agricorps and biker gangs alike are out to make it harder. Of course you’re good for a simple job of protecting the little guy, but are you up for where the inevitable complications lead you?
Be sure to check out the full line of Gun Metal Games products. An entire Savage Worlds cyberpunk future is waiting for you.
Wellstone City, 1937. A name you can’t quite place is throwing around a lot of money to get a job done. It’s a job you can do, and it’s money you’d like. All you’ve got to do is get some crusty antique thing away from some crusty antique guy, then catch a zeppelin to Greece.
But nothing stays simple. Pretty soon, you’re in the middle of multiple secret societies, G-men, and double agents. Everyone is selling some sort of truth about what’s going on. The question is, can you pay the price when you choose?
A Thule and His Money comes with two full maps from Fabled Environments (including the massive zeppelin that may well be the scene of an equally massive fight over a ridiculously massive ocean) and an exciting beginning that doesn’t involve a bar. Seriously, aside from brass knuckles, how can you beat that?

17 Witches helps you fill all those empty spots around the cauldrons in your countryside! With seventeen different kinds of witches to pick from, you’re set for friends and foes, helpers and harridans, and Extras and Wild Cards.
