Pinnacle Celebrates Labor Day Weekend with Gaming!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouLabor Day weekend is a time of celebration here in the states, and—for some of us, at least—that means game conventions!

Our own Shane HensleyEd Wetterman (one of the main ETU: Degrees of Horror developers at 12 to Midnight), and Tim Brown (of Dark Sun and Dragon Kings fame) will be at TactiCon in Denver. See what may now be the largest Savage Saturday Night in the world!

The infamous Clint Black, the lovely Jodi Black, and the undefinite Joel Kinstle will all be at Dragon Con in Atlanta. Be sure to check out Savage Sunday Night while you’re there! Licensees in attendance include Blackwyrm Publishing, Eloy Lasanta of Third Eye Games, and Ken Hite of Atomic Overmind Press.

Whichever convention you find yourself at, be sure to find us, too! We’re always happy to talk to a Savage Worlds fan.

If, for some weird reason, you don’t come see us, then enjoy the long holiday weekends with friends, family, and festivities on your own! If you can’t have fun with us, just be sure you’re having fun!

TactiCon 2013—Now with Shane Hensley!

TactiCon 2013TactiCon will be on us soon, August 29–September 2. The Denver Gamers Association invites you to come to their yearly Labor Day Weekend convention!

They’ve also invited our own Shane Hensley, and he’s going to be there! Ed Wetterman, one of the main ETU: Degrees of Horror developers at 12 to Midnight, will also be there! If you’re interested in catching Shane or Ed, meeting thousands of new and veteran gamers, starting a new hobby, or just gaming for a full long weekend, be sure to check out the Tacticon program booklet today.

These are the same folks who’ve been hosting convention in the Rocky Mountains for over three decades, including Genghis Con. I hear they know what they’re doing, and that the Savage Worlds presence is a mile above most conventions!

If you’re interested in a wide-ranging conversation, some summary of the awesome games from TactiCon, or just hearing from their surprise celebrity gaming guest, you should listen now!

This show is also a milestone for the Savage Mommy (Chris “Beldar1215″ Fuchs) of the Rocky Mountain Savages, as it’s the first show in which he’s introduced as a new part of the permanent cast, joining Veronica Blessing, Justin Suzuki, and Ron Blessing for—one presumes—all time. [Cue the thunder!—Ed.]

*Well, as “live” as a podcast can really get, I suppose.
