RKDN Studios Kickstarts into Savage Worlds

RKDN StudiosJoin us in welcoming RKDN Studios as our newest licensee! Their first Savage Worlds project will likely be The Bestiary of the Curiously Odd.

Why “will likely be”? Because Savage Worlds is currently their next stretch goal for the Bestiary of the Curiously Odd’s Kickstarter! As I type, they’re less than $500 from their goal of bringing their project to our system.

Did I mention that some of the Kickstarter levels include the ability to contribute to the book? No? This is your chance to be published with Ed Greenwood, Monte Cook, Wolfgang Baur, and a whole slew of industry professionals! There’s only 13 days left, so don’t delay.

Deadlands Trail Guides, Volume 1 Available for Preorder!

Deadlands Reloaded Trail Guides, Volume 1Take a tour of the less-traveled Weird West with your Epitaph correspondent Phineas P. Gage for the first three Deadlands Trail Guides now compiled into one volume for ease of reference.

In Trail Guide: South o’ the Border, visit beautiful Mexico. Bask in the sun as centuries-old hatred festers in the midst of a three-sided civil war.

In Trail Guide: Great Northwest, you’ll see the snow has its own beauty. But in this land gripped by Famine, you might give your left arm for some jerky, and that might be what it’s used for! When a war between the unnatural beasts in the woods threatens to wipe humanity from the region, will your posse be up to the challenge?

Finally, the Trail Guide: Weird White North takes you to the tundra of Alaska and British Columbia, a land locked in ice north of the amazing Winterline, a fence made by Hellstromme Industries to hold back the cold itself! But something more sinister, more malevolent than mere winter is being held in check…for now!

Each Trail Guide offers you a closer look at the people, places, and—perhaps most important—things you’ll see in each region. And don’t forget the mini-Plot Point Campaigns and Savage Tales in each, as well. You’re bound to have fun or die tryin’!

Deadlands Trail Guides, Volume 1 is now available for preorder. Preorder the printed book or get the PDF (from the Pinnacle PDF store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG). For the best value, get the Print-PDF Preorder Bundle through Studio 2—you’ll get the PDF immediately, the print book shipped to you as soon as it’s available, and a discount!

Terrifying Terrantula Two-Pack for Deadlands!

Terrantula Two-PackThe Weird West is a big place filled with big men, big ideas, and big…things…

The new terrantula two-pack brings that home in a horribly skitterific way. There’s not much “mini” about spiders the size of ponies—tarantulas so big they’re named after fear itself—other than being made of metal and ready to use for your gamin’ tabletop.

If you’ve got a hankerin’ to investigate more of what Mother Unnatural has to offer, be sure to check out Reaper’s full Savage Worlds miniature line. If you don’t, you’ll never know what’s out there…until it’s too late!
