The Gates Have Closed on the Kickstarter for Pathfinder® for Savage Worlds

Our hearty thanks to all you brave and extremely generous adventurers for helping to make our Kickstarter for Pathfinder for Savage Worlds a HUGE success, especially in these somewhat strange times!

Over 2,800 of you pledged your hard-earned gold pieces to unlock the last few Stretch Goals adding more Adversary Cards to the Rise of the Runelords Boxed Set, custom Bookmarks, the Fang Monastery to the Savage Pathfinder Companion, and beautiful, stitched ribbon dividers to the core rulebook!

We’re humbled by your enthusiastic support and plan to work hard to deliver products worthy of your attention. We also want to thank Paizo for forging Pathfinder in the first place and deciding to honor us with their vision.

Now, things are going to go a bit quiet for the next few weeks as Kickstarter takes about a month to collect pledges. During that time, we’ll keep working away on all the goodies you unlocked, and once funding is complete, we’ll start releasing PDFs and gathering any last minute proofing before we send everything off to our printer.

Until then, take a look at the FREE Sandpoint Devil Creature Feature available from DriveThruRPG, check out the detailed article From Pathfinder Spells to Savage Powers over on the Paizo Blog, and be sure to visit the official Pinnacle Entertainment Group YouTube and Twitch video archives to view the many recent developer interviews and in-depth discussions about Pathfinder for Savage Worlds as well as the complete Hollow’s Last Hope Premiere Playtest!

We might be finished with the Kickstarter, but there’s still plenty to see on the PEGinc Twitch channel. Design Corner with Donald Schepis is live Thursday Feb. 18th starting at 4pm EST (1pm PST). And tune in Monday Feb. 22nd at 7pm EST (4pm PST) for a special “Episode Zero” of the Hollow’s Last Hope Premiere Playtest, where you get to learn a lot more about the characters, their backgrounds, and how the group comes together to save Falcon’s Hollow!

Lastly, if you missed out on the Kickstarter, be sure to sign up for the PledgeManager “Bridge” to be notified the moment the pledge manager goes live! (And note that late backers will only be able to pledge for the physical reward tiers.)

But for now… the world of Golarion is vast, beautiful, and thrilling.

We cannot wait to play Pathfinder® for Savage Worlds with you all!

Savage Worlds Necessary Evil Audiobooks from Soundbooth Theater

If you’re looking for something exciting to put in your ears, head on over to the Soundbooth Theater website to download two new Savage Worlds audiobooks adapted from published short stories by authors Clint Black (Savage Worlds Core Rules Brand Manager and Community Manager) and Chris Lites.

First up, there’s Faces of Destruction, a Tale of Necessary Evil by Clint Black. This short and FREE, seven-minute story, ripped from the pages of Wendigo Tales Volume Zero, takes place in the world of Necessary Evil, a setting for Savage Worlds in which an alien invasion has wiped out most of the world’s super heroes, leaving only the super villains to save the Earth!

Second, for just $2.00 USD, Maps to the Stars continues with another adventure set in the universe of Necessary Evil, this time penned by Chris Lites:

“Jenner Tavern rode out the alien invasion doing what he does best: looking out for himself. Now, as the super villain host of the popular death match show Arena!, Jenner thinks he has it made. But a visit from an old accomplice is about to remind him that the past never stays dead and all supers, even a pampered celebrity like Jenner, are expendable in the eyes of Earth’s new alien overlords.”

And while snow is currently blanketing much of the country, perhaps making you think back a couple months to the holidays, be sure to check out Kringle Down by our own Shane Hensley, a thrilling tale of snowbound adventure set in Southwest Virginia!
