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?
Cast of Cards takes their Savage Worlds character packs deep into the realms of fantasy with two new additions—Ancient Ruins and 17 Witches!

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.

tentacular spectacular tour of the mysterious continent in their newly released Guide to North Africa for Achtung! Cthulhu.
Discover the secret history of World War II beyond Western Europe in a land where the heat is as much an enemy as any man with a gun. New templates for military and civilian occupations, tomes of forbidden lore to expand your mystic knowledge beyond what is wise, and new vehicles and equipment all wait to be found. Beware, though—the sands hide artifacts and creatures man was not meant to encounter, and has all the rules for a GM to make the most use of them!

And, no, we’re not talking about a political prisoner swap. Judge Fool is massive Savage Worlds adventure for super heroes from Plain Brown Wrapper Games.
Can you help Judge Fool, a man from the hundred-and-first century, stop the Lords of Dust and Silence from eating all time (in reverse order, no less)?

The 143-page adventure includes tips on handling alternate solutions, several paths to victory and defeat, and—probably most importantly—at least one opportunity to punch a dinosaur in the face. How can you go wrong?
Check out Judge Fool and the rest of the Plain Brown Wrapper Games offerings today.
DramaScape has just released their newest map—a 48″ x 30″ Western Town! And it ain’t just the streets, folks, it’s all the insides of the houses and saloons, too. You can print it with squares, hexes, or no overlays at all. You also get the virtual tabletop files for online use.
The Western Town map also comes with an adventure for Savage Worlds and a description of the town of Syverfall, including locations and NPCs (with Savage Worlds stat blocks).
