Savage Foes of Nehwon Ready for Orders!
Savage Foes of Nehwon is now available for immediate PDF purchase and print preorder! They say there’s someone for everyone—with over 100 characters from the Fritz Lieber’s classic Lankhmar stories and fifty creature entries, that’s definitely true in Lankhmar!
You also get three complete Savage Tales ready to go with the materials in Savage Foes of Nehwon as well as a complete Adventure Generator for the world of Nehwon. Never be without an adventure again!
The summer of sword-and-sorcery isn’t finished yet, though! Keep watching for the Lankhmar GM’s Screen and a full-fledged adventure, The Eyes of Goro’mosh, coming in July.
If you’ve already preordered Savage Foes of Nehwon, it should already be in your downloads section on the Pinnacle Web Store, ready for you to grab at your leisure.
You can still get a Lankhmar Bundle for reduced shipping costs or update a prior bundle order with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org! The mean streets of Lankhmar aren’t likely to let you keep your money, so let us help you while we can.
The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter Hitting Its Targets!
Just last week, The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter met several stretch goals—a print showcasing the cast image, Cards of the Six, and Creature Features for The Great Wyrms and Griselda the Grey Witch. This week, we’ve hit [cue the suspenseful music] The Sixth Goal*—that’s right, we’ve added a set of Sixth Gun Archetypes and Sixth Gun Figure Flats: Villains + Heroes! There’s only one left right now…that we’re admitting to, anyway! Be sure to drop by the The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter to get a full list of the goals, backer options, and details.
There are also adventures available right now. That’s right folks, no waiting. You can get your own free copy of The Sixth Gun: The One-Hand Gang from DriveThruRPG or from the Pinnacle Web Store (right by the free and informative Triptych o’ Trouble on the Sixth Gun RPG page).
Maybe all that is why the The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter is now a Kickstarter Staff Pick! Or maybe it’s just because it’s sooo darned cool—I’m torn.
And if you’re thinking about joining in the game that Cullen himself is running at Gen Con, you might want to check out his game promise video. It sounds like a good time destined to end in tears, gunfire, and blood!
Don’t go into the world of the Sixth Gun RPG alone—be sure to bring your friends with you. Be sure to tell ’em about it today!
* I fully understand the Sixth Goal is not as impressive as the Sixth Gun, but it still sounds kind of cool, right? C’mon—humor me on this one.
Rifts is Coming for Savage Worlds!
We’re pleased to announce that we will be developing Rifts for Savage Worlds! We’re early in the process now, but Shane* says we anticipate a core setting book in time for Christmas.
Rifts is a classic muti-genre post-apocalypse game with elements of everything from fantasy and mythology on through cyberpunk and mecha, the realization of Kevin Siembieda’s vision of a game with everything for everyone.
“I’m really excited to see what Rifts will look like in the Savage Worlds system,” said Siembieda. “The Savage fans are great folks, and I think Rifts is going to be an amazing amount of fun for them, letting them explore all the possibilities of both the system and the setting.”
Be sure to keep up with the Pinnacle news for more information as it becomes available!
* You know, leaky ol’ Shane who likes to pass out target dates, which just gives me hives. If it weren’t for him, I might never admit to anything! — Joel
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.

Explore Scientorium’s Wonders in The Last Parsec
Find lost technological treasures and knowledge beyond Known Space’s understanding in the library of Scientorium. This mammoth artifact lies hidden by sheer distance and forever shrouded from the minds of the curious. It’s strange experience chambers offer passage to millions of histories on millions of worlds, secrets and technologies undreamed of. Mysteriously abandoned except for its automated security systems and enigmatic caretakers, its workings are strangely twisted and jealous, meting out reward and punishment in equal measure.
Scientorium is a setting book for The Last Parsec. It contains new locations and characters for the epic journey to find Scientorium, new Setting Rules for the library’s many wonders, a Plot Point Campaign, Savage Tales, and detailed insight into the world of the reclusive Librarians.
The Scientorium PDF is available immediately, but the printed versions of the book are still on the Last Parsec Preorder Page! You can still preorder the whole Last Parsec line-up, including adventures, the GM Screen, tokens, all three system books (Eris Beta-V, Leviathan, and Scientorum, each with its own Plot Point Campaign), and custom dice, Bennies, and miniatures! Check it out today.
Leviathan Now Unleashed for The Last Parsec
The jungle planet Leviathan teems with mammoth lacerauns—savage beasts of enormous size and cunning, potential trophies unmatched in other star systems. Left intentionally undeveloped beyond a few tourist-oriented settlements, Leviathan still draws more than just adventure-seeking hunters. Researchers and those who would see the world left completely untouched are both willing to turn the tables on any would-be hunters.
Leviathan is a setting book for The Last Parsec. It contains new locations and characters for the planetary system, new Setting Rules for Leviathan’s natural dangers, a Plot Point Campaign, Savage Tales, and a host of new creatures–especially the lacerauns.
The Leviathan PDF is available immediately, but the printed versions of the book are still on the Last Parsec Preorder Page! You can still preorder the whole Last Parsec line-up, including adventures, the GM Screen, tokens, the two other system books (Eris Beta-V and Scientorum, each with its own Plot Point Campaign), and custom dice, Bennies, and miniatures! Check it out today.
Big Deadlands News Brewin’
The Pony Express was a fantastic advance in getting news into and out of the Weird West. Then things noticed a steady supply of food traveling overland, and they even started eating the ponies! It’s probably easiest and safest to keep your eyes on this space for all the upcoming Deadlands news—and there’s a few ponies’ worth a-comin’, partner.
You’ll be getting more details about the upcoming release for Stone and a Hard Place, the third Plot Point Campaign that puts you face-first into the spaghetti Western roots of Deadlands and up close and personal with the hardest of hard-nose killers—Stone.
For all you literary types, keep a lookout for news about the upcoming Ghostwalkers, the Tor novel by Jonathan Maberry! That’s right, the bonafide New York Times Bestselling author has taken a walk on the Weird side, and we’ll be giving you some sneak peeks soon.
And, possibly most satisfyingly, you’ll hear something next week that’ll scratch a most peculiar itch that some of you have, and might have had for decades now. Just remember, scratching isn’t always advised…
