As 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.
