Gun Metal Games now has the exclusive license to continue Daring Entertainment’s “Of the Dead” line of games.
David Jarvis, principal of Gun Metal Games, leapt at the chance to continue Daring Entertainment’s massive zombie apocalypse thriller setting when he heard Lee Szczepanik was stepping away from RPGs to focus on fiction writing. Lee, a fan of Gun Metal Games‘ Interface Zero, is happy to have the line in such capable hands, and will maintain a consulting and approval role to keep the flavor and direction of the series consistent.
We’re looking forward to seeing what comes from such a creative pair. Keep your eyes peeled. You don’t want the walking dead sneaking up on—or by—you!
Help start a whole new world of superheroics with the Daring Comics Kickstarter project! This four-color comic books setting for Savage Worlds comes from the creative team at Daring Entertainment and fully utilizes the Super Powers Companion (Second Edition).
The Kickstarter also includes the plans for multiple Mega-Event books. Think of them as a cross between a Plot Point Campaign and a comics cross-over story arc. Add one of those and—BAM!—you’re ready to start the high-flyin’ action.
The Daring Comics universe and Hellbrood (the first planned Mega-Event book) are definitely worth a look, so be sure to check out the Daring Comics Kickstarter project for full details on the books, the stretch goals, and some amazing make-me-a-part-of-it backer levels. It’ll be gone in a flash!*
*And that’s definitely with a lower-case f. We don’t need to be starting any super-trouble…
Rebuilding commerce in a post-apocalyptic Northern Midwest is a good way to make money. Boat trade should be an easy way to connect Wright Town to Geneva and Scrap City on Lake Michigan. Once on the lake, they may even be able to reach the open sea if the pre-War maps are right at all.
But first there’s the Haunted Straits. Is it really filled with vengeful spirits driving away outsiders? Can it be allowed to blocked progress? Can you stop it if it tries?
The Haunted Straits describes an isolated community, the history of the area, and the important NPCs. The Haunted Straits is filled with plot points specifically for the ENnie nominated Broken Earth setting from Sneak Attack Press, but could be used with any post-apocalyptic campaign.
Our own Clint Black and Jodi Black will be at Event Horizon Games this Saturday, August 2. If you’re anywhere near Raleigh, North Carolina, looking for a Savage Saturday event, your dreams have come true!
Did I forget to mention you’ll also be getting Charles White of Fabled Environments, David Hardee and Dan Smith of Pirate Press running their Battle for Oz setting, and Paul Coulter of Event Horizon Games? And that there are rumored to be door prizes? I should remember to mention that.

If you’re planning a little farther out, watch for Clint and Jodi at Dragon Con, August 29-September 1, in Atlanta. While you’ll likely find Jodi at the Beautiful Brains Books and Games booth most of the time, you can find them both at the Savage Sunday Night event, August 31. To sign up to play or run a game at Dragon Con, visit the Dragon Con Gaming Page today.
