Recently, the charming and talented Matt Mercer, resident Dungeon Master on Project Alpha’s wildly popular Critical Role show, joined Big Rick of Game Trade Media for a fun and informative chat about gaming and so much more.
While much of the interview is focused on Critical Role and Dungeons & Dragons, at around the 16-minute mark, Matt reveals that one of his other RPG loves is none other than… Deadlands!
Check out the entire interview for yourself and imagine, if you will, Mr. Mercer pinning on the Marshal’s badge to run a few sessions of Deadlands… Hey, stranger things have happened in the Weird West, pardner!
If you’re looking for conventions in your area featuring Savage Worlds events, just head over to the Pinnacle Conventions page. It’s positively brimming with up-to-date con information for 2018!
This weekend (Presidents’ Day weekend here in the United States), consider a trip out to GenghisCon in Aurora, Colorado, Tri-cities RadCon in Pasco, Washington, or DunDraCon in San Ramon, California.
The Rocky Mountain Savages put on one heck of a show with GenghisCon featuring over 50 Savage Worlds games and, of course, one of the best run Savage Saturday Nights around. You can also game with a few fast, furious, and fun folks, friends, and fellow fans (that’s a LOT of “Fs”) including Sean Patrick Fannon and Darrell Hayhurst, both of Savage Rifts® fame. If that’s not enough to convince you to attend, wait ’til you get a load of their latest promo video!
If you’re near Pasco, Washington this weekend, be sure to head over to the Red Lion Hotel for RadCon, this year featuring Scott Woodard (Flash Gordon™, The Sixth Gun) as this year’s Gaming Guest of Honor, plus John Goff (Deadlands, Deadlands: Hell on Earth, Deadlands Noir, and so much more), as well as Sara and Brendan Quinn of Squid & Crow.
Finally, find frequent collaborator, Randy Mosiondz at DunDraCon in sunny San Ramon, California.

Calling All Explorers!
From a contemporary case of cold-blooded murder, to desert-dwelling, carnivorous terrors of the Weird West. And from a mystifying modern day investigation to Victorian-era horror in the Far East, the fifth, jam-packed issue of Savage Worlds Explorer has it all, this time featuring all-new material penned by Camdon Wright, Kyle Carty, Sean Tait Bircher, and our very own John Goff:
Two Birds, One Stone by Camdon Wright is a contemporary whodunit using the core rules. The Cowboy Killer is a new Creature Feature for Deadlands: Reloaded by Kyle Carty that introduces a nasty new threat to almost everyone out on the trail. Sean Tait Bircher delivers us a unique adventure for Rippers Resurrected titled Foxed, with the heroes finding themselves assisting the Toyko Lodge in a mission against a truly diabolical threat. And finally, veteran Savage Worlds writer, John Goff (of Deadlands: Noir fame) unleashes A Familiar Problem that casts the players as modern-day investigators working a rather unusual missing persons case.
Click here for more information and to order Issue 5 of Savage Worlds Explorer!
The Savage Worlds Explorer requires a copy of the Savage Worlds core rules and may also require the core books for each setting. Add a few dice, a deck or two of playing cards, a few eager explorers, and let the fun begin!
For the past several weeks, Jeff Regner and his posse have been playing a little Deadlands: Reloaded and then uploading well-produced, dramatic audio summaries of their adventures for everyone to enjoy. We really love what folks do with our Fan License!
While many of the episodes focus on their progress through The Flood (spoilers!), they also include an occasional One-Sheet adventure, as well.
Check out Sunday Nights in the Old West today!

Pull up a stump, amigo and sit for a while because we’ve got loads of exciting news for all you Doomtown: Reloaded fans:
The Doomtown Trunk has Grown
We’ve increased the size of the Doomtown Trunk! It’s now 11″ x 11.5″ x 4″, adding two inches to the width and half an inch in length for superior storage capacity. This updated trunk will hold three to four sleeved decks with room to spare for the rest of your unsleeved collection. We recently reached out to our printer for an updated timeline, and as soon as we have one we’ll pass it on to you, so watch this space.
Plague Carnival – We’re editing the final draft and selecting art, and then it’s off to layout! Pine Box Entertainment’s resident story boss and editor, David Orange, has written some new text to fill in the gaps so that this collection can serve as a refresher and an entry point for the story of Doomtown: Reloaded thus far. We’re really excited to get this to all of you!
Showstopper – A few of you had the chance to play a part of this adventure at PAX Unplugged and we’ve just finished tweaking the encounters based on that experience as well as doing some additional playtesting. We’re really working on making sure you get an authentic Doomtown and Deadlands experience in one package. We’ve got a bit more writing to do on this one.
A Fight They’ll Never Forget – The outline for this adventure and all its encounters are complete. Our writing focus will shift once we’ve sent Showstopper to layout (see above), so this one won’t be too far behind. There’s a lot that happens in this part of Doomtown’s story and we’re making sure we don’t miss a thing.
Organized Play 2018
We’ve got a jam-packed year ahead of us! Kicking off with our Tombstone Series, we’ve got events scheduled year round giving players chances to affect the story, name a card, bring a character back from the dead, and even design a card to appear in a future set. Check out the breakdown here!
Lastly, please make sure you’ve completed your survey at PledgeManager.com—otherwise we won’t know where to ship your rewards!

This past Sunday, Legendary Games, makers of fine support materials for a variety of popular roleplaying games, unleashed their very first adventure for Savage Worlds titled Feasting at Lanterngeist:

If Lovecraftian horror is your oozing, slime-filled bag, be sure to take a peek at the Kickstarter for The League of Seekers from Savage Worlds licensee, Feral Gamers.
“The League of Seekers is a horror RPG set in an alternate, 18th century Europe. The Age of Enlightenment has begun. Science and religion jostle for control over the masses. A mad king sits upon the throne of England. Monsters terrorize the peasants in France. The forests of Eastern Europe harbor beasts from folktales and legends. The Ottoman Empire has begun to lose its grip, and to the south, a sleeping god stirs, his dreams scratching at the thin veil that separates reality from the nightmare.
The player characters are part of a secret society called The League of Seekers, invited because of their skills and knowledge. The characters are sent to vanquish the horrors, thwart cults, and banish the cosmic terrors that wish to control the world. The League of Seekers is part Lovecraftian horror and part European folklore and draws influence from movies like Brotherhood of the Wolf and The Libertine, as well as computer games like Bloodborne.”
Visit The League of Seekers Kickstarter page and pledge your support (and your unwavering, eternal allegiance) today!
