We’re down to the wire with the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter campaign, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. A large part of our Kickstarter plan was to gauge fan interest in the new setting. You fully funded the project in about three hours and have chewed through every stretch goal we’ve put out there, so I think it’s safe to say that you’re interested!
Speaking of stretch goals, we’re not done yet. You’ve already exceeded our content goals for the setting, but we thought there was still a little more we could give you. Check out the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter Updates for details on stretch goals for the last 48 hours. If you’re new to the Kickstarter, you can also find a recap of all the updates so far as well as all four parts of the illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy. [Update: You can also get the illustrated audio drama from Shane’s YouTube channel!]
If you want to really get into the setting, and I mean really get into it, we’ve added eight more Hardboiled backer slots to the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter campaign. At that level, you can become a real name in an unreal world. Beat feet if you’re interested buddy—those things go faster than a get-away driver on the lam!
And be sure to listen to Episode 64 of the Atomic Array podcast with special guest John Goff, lead author for Deadlands Noir. It’s their first show dedicated to Savage Worlds, and they get John to talk about the system, its origins, Deadlands Noir and the Kickstarter campaign, and even his days as a professional interrogator.
By any gauge, this project has been a wild success. We’re humbled by your outpouring of support, excited and energized by your enthusiasm, and really looking forward to turning our attention to development. You have our sincerest thanks.
With just over a week left in our first Kickstarter campaign, Deadlands Noir, you’ve nearly met all our stretch goals, including expanding the setting with the Deadlands Noir Companion to Chicago, Lost Angels, and Shan Fan!
Visit the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter page for today’s updates and hear the fourth and final installment of the illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy.

We’re right into the half-way mark on our first Kickstarter campaign, Deadlands Noir, and the enthusiasm remains overwhelming. This morning, our stretch goals were like shell casings in a highway gunfight—all used up and behind us!
Unlike some of the back-bayou judges, we wouldn’t just leave you hangin’. Check out the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter page for today’s updates, including the third installment of our illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy and our new stretch goals. If you need a hint, just remember that the world might not turn out to be as small as you thought, but that probably means there’s more trouble out there with your name on it.
For anyone that missed it, be sure to read John Goff’s Update #6: Mystery and Investigation from last Friday for a little insight into Deadlands Noir and his own murky PI past.
Last week we launched our first Kickstarter campaign with Deadlands Noir, and you were more supportive and excited than we’d imagined. After a touch more than three hours, we shot through our original goal like a wet paper range target!
We added a series of stretch goals last Friday, and as of today we’re past all but one—including the Deadlands Noir custom dice set previewed here—with 22 days left to go! There’s a new stretch goal in today’s Kickstarter update, and it’s based on number of supporters, not cash. You, too, can make a difference!
The second installment of our illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy goes live (or something very similar) on the Kickstarter page today. We left Harvey Jenkins in a precarious position on the worst side of the Bloody Ol’ Muddy’s delta. Find out how ol’ Harv’s doing—it might be the only mystery New Orleans ever gives up.
If you missed it last week and want more details on Deadlands Noir, check out last week’s new article Deadlands Noir—The Secret Setting Revealed! or the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter page.
GRAmel’s Indiegogo campaign for Beasts of the Dominions has already exceeded their funding goals! Players of their Beasts & Barbarians sword-and-sorcery Savage Worlds setting can rejoice—or quake in fear, as appropriate.
But they’re not done with you yet. If you help them meet their stretch goal, an additional chapter, Disciples of the Black Temple, will be added to the book. Tall, gaunt men with dark staves, shapers of flesh, masters of shadow, and friends with death…just what every game needs, no?
Why not kill two birds with one sling stone. All contribution levels are still open, so you can help bring the Disciples of the Black Temple to print as well as becoming one yourself if you act soon!
