Savage Worlds on the WebThe fine folks over at Geek & Sundry have been swept up in HBO’s Westworld excitement—just like many of you!* Now that the season is over, what can you do to get your fix of Western thrill and danger?

Read their 5 Western Themed Game Delights article for suggestions on how to scratch that itch with some games. Here’s a hint—Deadlands: Reloaded is on the list. There are also card, board, and dice games on the list, too. Be amazed at the variety, but you can’t marvel if you don’t go read.

* Okay, many of us as well. You caught us.


Join the Pinnacle Crew*

Career Opportunities with PinnacleHere’s proof that 2017 is a shining new year, filled with hope and opportunity unimagined in 2016—you have the chance to join the Pinnacle Entertainment Staff! If you’ve dreamed of having your thumbnail and brief bio included on the Pinnacle Staff page, this might be your lucky day!**

We want to add a part-time Production Assistant to our mix. Check our new Careers page for the link (or download the job description PDF directly).

Even if this isn’t the opportunity for you, feel free to forward it on to anyone you think would be a good fit, even if they aren’t Savage Worlds players. We’re shockingly accepting that way.

* If you actually read that in a pirate voice or added “matey” at the end, then this might be for you.

** You may also want to look into some bigger dreams. I’d offer you some of mine, but I suspect the rest of the crew would advise you against it very, very quickly.

*** I know, there isn’t a three-asterisk reference in the text above. I just wanted to say that your chances of finding a better bunch of folks to work with and get to know is, in my experience, slimmer than the Slender Man after a juice cleanse. If you’re interested and qualified, don’t hesitate. — Joel

Level One Wonk Reviews Savage Rifts®

Rifts for Savage Worlds on the WebThe fine* folks at Cannibal Halfling Games have added Level One Wonk: Savage Rifts® to their series of game reviews. Not only can you see more opinions and application, but this review covers a lot more history of Rifts® than most do.

Go read it today. After all, it’s best to know everything you can before a Rift opens in your neighborhood.

* I actually assume they’re short, angry, and hungry, but that just doesn’t flow as well, nor is it as friendly as “fine.”

Could there be free cookies? Will there be free cars for all attendees? The only* way to find out for sure is to join us there!

* Okay, you can probably just apply some common sense and guess that there won’t be free cars, at least not the full-size kind that actually operate.
