Moonless Night Over Grimdell Adventure Released for Beasts & Barbarians

Moonless Night over GrimdellOne little bar brawl goes horribly wrong, and you find yourself waiting for your own execution. But there’s still a chance to save your life.

All you have to do is sneak into the castle, kill a traitor, and save the beautiful daughter of Baron Grotho. Sure, it’s going to be dangerous, but you’ll be spared and rewarded—if you manage to succeed. Refuse, and the executioner’s axe will show you no mercy.

The choice is yours in Moonless Night Over Grimdell, the newest adventure for Beasts & Barbarians, GRAmel’s sword-and-sorcery Savage Worlds setting. But beware—moonless nights are always the most dangerous!


Red Land Available from Studio 101

RedlandIt’s 1922. The World War has not ended. Apocalyptic prophecies have come true. Dozens of doctrines and ideologies promise a perfect world order with happiness for all, then coalesce into a bloody civil war that shatters the Russian Empire and, in some ways, the world itself.

Behind the open conflicts, a secret war of mystic orders is playing out. The longer you survive, the more you may learn, and the more power you might yet master. But power can be as deadly to its “masters” as it is to its “victims,” and you never truly know which you are in this broken world.

Red Land is a mystical action game in an alternate Russian Civil War in 1917–1922 where magic has become as important to politics as force and intrigue in the first Russian-language Savage Worlds setting! Red Land is brought to you by Studio 101, the fine folks producing the Russian-language Savage Worlds rules. Perhaps this is the excuse you need to add another language to your repertoire, eh?

If you’re already here checking the latest in PEG News, browsing our friendly forum, or getting the latest in free downloads, you don’t have to go anywhere else to get a quick your Savage Worlds PDF fix!

For those of you who are quick to fear, keep calm. First, we’re opening up the Pinnacle PDF Store to any of our Savage Worlds licensees, so it’s not just us.

Our PDFs will also continue to be available from Studio 2 Publishing, RPGNow, and DriveThruRPG, as well. Heck, you can go to our partner stores straight from the Shop dropdown in the top menu bar!

But, just like the new site, the new Pinnacle PDF Store is still something of a work in progress. You can expect to see more materials cropping up as we fill out the virtual shelves. So don’t worry if the selection grows while you watch—the hallucinations probably aren’t back…

StoryWeaver Welcomes you to Hael!

But strangers have arrived from beyond the stars, bringing terrible new weapons and powers of the mind. War is returning to Hael, old hatreds are writ in fresh blood, and simmering revolution comes to a violent boil!

StoryWeaver’s new dark fantasy setting for Savage Worlds is now available on RPGNow and DriveThruRPG. The opening salvo includes the Hael Core Rules, the adventure Night of the Long Fangs, and the free adventure Burning Bridges! Did I mention the free adventure contains a beautiful printable map and a background audio track to set the mood? Still not convinced? Check out the Hael introductory video.


Save Keister Island—Love Mutha Oith

Keister Island KickstarterThe Kickstarter project for The Whole Hole: A Gadabout’s Guide to Mutha Oith, Volume 01: Keister Island is dangerously close to meeting its funding goals. How could anyone not want to see Andy Hopp’s first big expansion to the most unique Savage Worlds setting ever—Low Life: Rise of the Lowly—come to fruition? You’ve still got a week or so, and your contributions could make all the difference.

The Whole Hole: A Gadabout’s Guide to Mutha Oith, Volume 01: Keister Island would be the first in an ongoing series of guidebooks and expansions for a world gazillions of years in the future where the hoomanrace is extinct and everybody evolved from the dregs that survived the various cataclysms and apocalypses—your cockroaches, your worms, your snack cakes, and definitely your what-have-yous. The book would also be filled with the truly fantastic art of Andy Hopp. As a special bonus, like many of the fine folks of Mutha Oith, it has two colons! There’s even a support level that gives you free entrance to Con on the Cob for life!

It’s the most different difference you’ll ever make!

Deadlands Minis Get a Woman’s Magic Touch!

Female Huckster Savage Worlds MiniA fine woman can be a sight for sore eyes in the dim saloons and dusty trails of the Weird West. But when that silk fan turns out to be a spread of cards and that wind blowin’ through her hair is laced with screams from the fiery pits, perhaps you best be movin’ on.

And that combination of femininity and fury is exactly what you can get with the new female huckster mini, Reaper’s latest addition to the Savage Worlds miniature line. If you’re after the most dangerous harem in Deadlands, don’t forget the mad scientist, Indian shaman, and Texas Ranger to round out the current roster of female Savage Worlds minis.
