Jim—Yes, That Jim—Talks Deadlands
Jim Ryan (of Jim—Yes, That Jim and Crucible of Realms infamy) just released an episode nearly-entirely about Deadlands, with a splash of mash-up genre philosophy thrown in for flavor. Check out his Deadlands and More Deadlands episode now!
For those of you who are particularly fond of imaginary animals, Jim claims no jackalopes were harmed in the making of the podcast. Personally, I have my doubts…

Savage Bones Brings Savage Worlds Stats to Reaper Bones Minis
Sometimes, you guys take the Savage Worlds Fan License and do things that just make us go, “Hey, that’s awesome!” Savage Bones is one of those things.
Since the middle of last year, Savage Bones has been creating Savage Worlds stat blocks for all the minis from the Reaper Bones miniature line. We might not be quick on the draw, but we certainly recognize a good idea when we finally see it. Now you can drop any of the Reapers Bones minis straight into your Savage Worlds games with virtually no effort at all!
For all you minis fans, be sure to check out the Savage Worlds Minis from Reaper as well as Reaper’s full line of minis.

Super Powers Companion Transition Guide
The recently-released Savage Worlds Super Powers Companion (Second Edition) is a significant update to the original Super Powers Companion. Because of the unique and comprehensive nature of the changes between the two, we’re doing something special for our friends who’ve supported the book since the beginning.
Normally, we provide an update document for new editions so you’ll know what, in particular has changed. This time, though, we’re giving you a basic text PDF with all of the rules from Character Creation through Headquarters, including the material that didn’t change. That gives you all of the most current rules in one place without flipping back and forth between the original and the update document.
If you compare the transition guide to the Savage Worlds Super Powers Companion (Second Edition), you might notice that some of the “fluff” is gone. Don’t worry—all of the rules are in there!
This isn’t something we’ve ever done before, and it’s not something we’re likely to do again. This time, though, we wanted to thank you for all your support in the past, present, and in the future!
