Pinnacle Steps into 2014!

Savage Worlds' Brave New YearAs one year turns into the next, it’s human nature to reflect on the past and look to the future. As all of us here at Pinnacle are only human,* how could we do any differently?

Last year was filled with excitement, both big and small. It was our first full year with Shane back at the helm full-time, and we “upgraded” Jodi Black from Editor to Licensing and Social Media Manager (and Editor**). Our first Kickstarted products (Deadlands Noir) made it into the real world, and our second Kickstarter (Weird Wars Rome) was wildly successful! We released a slew of new products, attended a lot of conventions, started the new line of fiction with Wendigo Tales, expanded the Pinnacle Web Store, and had a great year thanks to all of you!

Ours wasn’t the only good year, either! The Savage Worlds licensees released a wide variety of well-received materials, both with new settings and expansions to old favorites, by traditional means and by several successful Kickstarters. It’s exciting to see what other people do with the Savage Worlds system and to see you give them your enthusiastic support as well.

What does 2014 hold for us? You already know about the Science Fiction Companion and Super Powers Companion (2nd Ed.) releasing for preorder in January. Some of you have already heard of our sci-fi setting Last Parsec. You can also expect more for Deadlands: Reloaded (including the next of the big four Plot Point Campaigns) and Deadlands: Hell On Earth (including the Hell on Earth Companion)! And if you don’t think we’re keeping a few more surprises up our sleeve—including ETU: Degrees of Horror—than you just don’t know us very well…

Thanks again for the great 2013, and stick with us for the even better 2014 coming next!

* No, really. It’s absolutely true. I don’t understand why I have to keep defending this claim. Have you ever seen a more human-looking bunch?

** It’s sort of like the mafia or Hotel California. You can’t ever really get out of editing. Ever.

Accursed Released—Have a Very Monstrous Holiday!

Accursed from Melior ViaYou are the Accursed, monsters made from ordinary men and women by the cruel magic of the Witches of the Grand Coven. The world rejoices with the end of their reign, with the downfall of the Grand Coven, and that light may once again prevail.

But not for you. You remain a monster, unwelcome, unwanted, unable to return to your home, and haunted by what you have done in service to evil.

The light, however, is not as strong as all have hoped, and darkness is ascendant again. Only forms as horrible, twisted, and powerful as your own can stand against it. Can you save a world that spurns you, a world you once struggled to enslave or destroy?

Find redemption, and perhaps a cure, in Melior Via’s Accursed. Both the full setting and the Player’s Guide are available now in PDF.

TAG’s Land of Fire Expands into the Southern Oceans!

Land of Fire Realm Guide to the Southern OceansBroaden your travel horizons in Triple Ace GamesLand of Fire setting with the newest Realm Guide—The Southern Oceans!

The turbulent coastal seas are a vital part of Al-Shirkuh’s trading and travel routes, linking all coastal cities in one vast maritime web. Ferry men, cargo, or anything you can dream of along the briny highways.

If you’re brave enough, take to the open ocean. While it’s generally avoided—with the fearsome giants, sea serpents, pirates, renegade djinn, and immense likelihood of death—the storyteller’s lures of islands littered with gems, ancient ruins stacked with golds, and lost magic undreamed of by modern man have sent more than one adventuresome sort into the glittering blue-green unknown!

Weigh anchor, hoist the sails, and follow in the Sinbad’s “sailsteps” with

  • Over a dozen locations on and beneath the waves,
  • More information on Upuaut, the god of travel, and other minor sea deities,
  • Setting rules for nautical travel, new ships, and underwater combat,
  • Eleven new monsters, and
  • The Brotherhood of Sinbad!

Weird Wars Rome Gets Physical!

Weird Wars Rome DiceWeird Wars Rome stretches beyond the confines of recent electronic PDF releases and breaks into the world of physical products! With a shipping date of mid-December, everyone can now literally put their hands on several Weird Wars Rome products.

First and foremost, the Weird Wars Rome core book is available in both softcover and limited-edition hardcover, as well as several bundle options to get print and PDF copies together at a significant discount! Become a part of a history darker than you know in an Empire more hard-fought than you ever imagined.

Every good leader has things he must know—and secrets he must keep! The Weird Wars Rome GM Screen will help you do exactly that. As battle rages across the three-sided landscape facing your players, all the most important charts, tables, and references will be quickly at hand. The 32-page Nox Germanica adventure—a desperate tale of blood and battle with rebellious barbarians and their sinister allies—is also included.

Sturdy, double-sided, erasable poster maps will also be shipping. Choose from either a Frontier Fortress/Village or the Druid Circle/Village to bring your Weird Wars Rome—or any other—game to life on the table!

And how can you seek the blessing of Fortuna without paying her homage? Our customized Weird Wars Rome Dice would be most pleasing to both of you! Five Roman red dice with Imperial gold numbering comes with a custom Weird Wars Rome Wild Die to complete the set.

With a shipping date of mid-December, they’re the perfect gift for Saturnalia (or any other holiday you might celebrate around that time)!

The Many Places—and Monstrous Heads—of Weird Wars Rome

Weird Wars Rome in the Pinnacle Web StoreWeird Wars Rome continues to expand with new places to visit and more things you may never want to run into!

The Weird Wars Rome map series brings you four new 24 x 30 full-color PDFs, ready to be printed with or without grids, scaled to fit your 28 mm miniatures. For even more versatility, the buildings all have versions with and without roofs to help you bring the action inside or maintain the mystery as you choose!

The Roman Fort brings you a stronghold of the Legions that could be anywhere within the Empire. Village 1 and Village 2 could be any rural settlement from Italia to distant Britannia, and they can be combined to provide a larger settlement. Finally, go deep into the Celtic or Germanic wilds for the Standing Stones, a representation of the mysterious menhirs of superstitious barbarians!

Weird Wars Rome Creature Feature: The Hydra takes you straight to monsters that have rivaled Hercules himself—the dread hydras that lurk in unlucky swamps, rivers, and lakes. You’ll find statistics for several varieties of the multi-headed beasts—including the fearsome gargantuan Lernaen hydra—Figure Flats to represent the terror on your tabletop, and five Savage Tales to bring the legends to hungry, horrifying life!

In one week alone, you have something to run from as well as somewhere to hide. Perhaps with the blessings of Fortuna, that will work out well for your Legionaries…

Travel to the Boundaries of Weird Wars Rome and Meet Her Many People!

Weird Wars Rome in the Pinnacle Web StoreWeird Wars Rome continues to expand with more support materials to flesh out an empire to the last man and the furthest corners!

Meet those who would stand with and against the glory of the Rome! Weird Wars Rome: Heroes of Rome is a set of Figure Flats that brings you dozens of legionaries, auxilia, and characters who live to defend the honor of an empire. Weird Wars Rome: Enemies of Rome supplies a wretched lot who would watch true civilization burn—Britons, druids, Germans, Dacians, Greeks, Nubians, and the like. Both sets of Figure Flats include a mix of flat figures, such as cavalry or vehicles designed to allow other figures to go on top, and stand-up figures that can be assembled in several ways.

After meeting both friend and foe, let Weird Wars Rome: The Half-Set Sun take you to the far-flung corners of Aegyptus, a land of mystery and antiquity, ancient gods and goddesses, mysterious temples and tombs, and extreme environments. Can you and the century under your command retake lost territory from the Nubians that have flooded in as the Nile has finally receded? Will you find the cause behind such an inconceivable violation of Rome’s sovereign border?

The rise of the Empire has not yet ended. Watch here for further news of the growth of its glory!
