More for ETU/DOH Backers and Fans!

ETU ArchetypesIt’s a big day for East Texas University and Degrees of Horror backers! Both the ETU Adventure Generator and Off Radio (ETU fiction) are now freely available to you. If you didn’t have the chance to back the ETU/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter, these will both be coming your way later.

The ETU Archetypes are also available today. With twelve different characters (from jock to journalist and geek to rodeo queen) ready to go, including stats and figure flats, you’re ready to fill your ETU game with friendly freshman faces from the first! If you’re more of a three-dimensional purist, don’t worry—ten of the archetypes are the base models for the first batch of ETU Miniatures.

Are you still somehow on the fence? You should consider a career as a rodeo clown and be sure to catch the recording of Jerrod Gunning’s Savage Worlds GM Hangout tonight, July 15, for Beelzebubba, a live play demo of ETU!
