It’s Thanksgiving here in the United States. For our international friends, that’s a time when we come together as friends and family and tell everyone what we’re thankful for.
Today, Pinnacle Entertainment Group is INCREDIBLY thankful to our good friends at Paizo for letting us play in their amazing world of Golarion, setting of the phenomenally successful Pathfinder Roleplaying Game!
Following the incredible reception we had with Kevin Siembieda’s phenomenal world of Rifts®, we’re bringing Pathfinder’s fantastic Adventure Paths to the Savage Worlds™ system, starting with the best-selling Rise of the Runelords™!
The Kickstarter begins mid-January, 2021, and will feature the Savage Pathfinder core rules, a boxed set with all the usual Savage Worlds accessories, AND the Rise of the Runelords boxed set with all six books of the Adventure Path and other deluxe accessories!
Tune in to Pinnacle’s social media for more information between now and the Kickstarter! #SavagePathfinder #WorldsCollide

This week in the United States, families and friends will gather (virtually or otherwise) to celebrate Thanksgiving.
While 2020 has truly been one for the record books, it has also been a big year for Pinnacle with a very successful Kickstarter campaign for Deadlands: the Weird West (plus our brand new Booster Kickstarter for Blood Drive that launched today), a number of new releases, and some fantastic developments on the virtual tabletop front.
This Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) keep your eyes on our site and our social media accounts for a VERY exciting announcement for Savage Worlds players and Game Masters from us here at PEG HQ!
“Head ’em up and move ’em out! Your cowpokes are joining one of the longest, most dangerous cattle drives in the Weird West!“
Blood Drive, written by John “Night Train” Goff, originally appeared as three linked adventures for Deadlands Reloaded, and was sold only in PDF.
Now we’re printing Blood Drive in a gorgeous, full-color, 96-page hardback with expanded material, updates to the new version of Deadlands: the Weird West and the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition, and supplemented with new art and additional maps (great for VTT play!).
Additional special Booster Rewards include 12 new character Archetype Cards, six Infernal Device cards, three sheets of full-color, front-and back, individually die-cut cardboard Deadlands Pawns, and two new map packs—a train station (End of the Line) and Ambush Pass!
Visit the Blood Drive Kickstarter Booster page today to check out all the rewards and to pledge your support.
And if you’re not familiar with Deadlands, our premier Weird Western setting, download the FREE Test Drive rules here to see what it’s all about!
Now available for your virtual tabletop of choice, this FREE, full-color Weird West Map reflects the state of the union in the most recent history presented in Deadlands: the Weird West.
Don’t get lost out in the Western States, download this new map today! Backers of the Deadlands Kickstarter received a comp copy of this product via DriveThruRPG.com.
And be sure to check out our growing selection of Virtual Tabletop Assets including custom Bennies, maps, pawns, Action Decks, and much more.
Better Off UN-Dead, a sequel (of sorts) to the classic ’80s teen comedy Better Off Dead, livestreamed for charity this past Saturday, November 21st on the GamersTable Twitch channel.
The stream, Game Mastered by Chris Hussey and using the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition rules, told the story of what (might have) happened to Lane, Monique, Ricky, Charles, Roy, and Beth after the original movie.
This special event included two celebrity guests: actress Diane Franklin, reprising her role as Monique, and Better Off Dead Writer/Director “Savage” Steve Holland, both of whom were playing their very first tabletop RPG!
This stream was run to raise money for Toys for Tots (because… CHRIS-MASS) and you can check it out for yourself (a fun alternative to Thanksgiving football) through December 3rd right here!

One of the most exciting events that took place during Hollerween (Pinnacle’s first, official Savage Worlds online convention) was the PEG Q&A Panel.
This hour-long seminar, moderated by Christopher Landauer, featured Shane Hensley, Jodi Black, Simon Lucas, and Jessica Rogers all offering up news and exclusive sneak peeks of upcoming Savage Worlds products.
A few highlights from this panel include:
- The Blood Drive trilogy (originally published for Deadlands Reloaded) is being updated and expanded for a new hardcover release.
- All four Savage Worlds Companions (Fantasy, Horror, Science Fiction, and Supers) are being completely reworked, and the Fantasy Companion may be released as early as Q1 2021.
- East Texas University: Study Abroad will focus on four different countries and their unique horrors.
- All existing Rippers Resurrected: Expeditions supplements will be compiled into a boxed set.
- Necessary Evil 3 is a cosmic-level campaign a la Guardians of the Galaxy that will be unleashed after the release of the Supers Companion.
- The next Savage Rifts® book takes the fight to… Atlantis!
If you missed out on Hollerween, the best place to watch all the other archived content is either on our YouTube channel or over on our Twitch channel (and be sure to “follow” us—and turn those notifications on— so you’ll know when we stream again).
