Hell on Earth Miniature Kickstarter Goes Live!

Hell On Earth Reloaded Miniatures KickstarterNo, smartypants, the Kickstarter isn’t miniature—it’s a Kickstarter for Hell on Earth Miniatures!

Our friends at Studio 2 Publishing came up with a new idea for the Hell On Earth miniature set. With a blowout Kickstarter, the whole line of Hell on Earth minis could be released at the same time as the Hell on Earth printed rulebook instead of dribbling out a few a month afterwards! That’s right, at the same time you get your print copy of Hell on Earth Reloaded, you could also populate your gaming table with potentially dozens of denizens of the Wasted West in small scale!

If you’re one of those people who doesn’t play Hell On Earth (not that there’s anything wrong with that), check out the Kickstarter anyway. The minis are suitable for all sorts of genres, including modern, post-apocalypse, post-modern, and sci-fi! Even if that doesn’t get you, the illustrated audio drama should!

Everyone in the Wasted West needs a little bit of lead on their side to help keep off a bad case of the Glows. Support the Hell on Earth Minis Kickstarter today!


RKDN Studios Kickstarts The Reliquary

RKDN StudiosRKDN Studios is Kickstarting their second Savage Worlds book, The Reliquary. Starting with 60 new magic items for Savage Worlds games (and Pathfinder and 13th Age), the content is rapidly expanding as they hit their stretch goals! Right now, they’ve hit their first four content-generating stretch goals, and there’s still nearly a month to go!

Much like their first Kickstarter project, The Bestiary of the Curiously Odd, some of the contribution levels let you submit your own ideas to be worked into The Reliquary. Those slots are going fast, though, so don’t delay!


Put a Little Back East in Your Weird West with the New Muckraker Mini!

Muckraker Deadlands MiniIs the pen mightier than the sword even when most folks don’t believe a word of the truth you’re sendin’ back? Welcome to the thankless life of a muckraker in the Weird West, amigo.

It ain’t an easy path, findin’ the strangest, most dangerous things the West has to offer and reporting to the unconvinced masses and ragtag few crazy believers. Committing nameless horrors to print can be an unhealthy profession, especially when those horrors prefer to remain nameless!

At least now you can stand tall—well, as tall as any other miniature—with the release of Reaper’s muckraker mini! Be sure to check out the full Savage Worlds miniature line while you’re at it—after all, a muckraker’s life expectancy goes up quite a bit if he travels with a few friends. Nobody said the pen was mightier than a few six-guns, partner!


Third Eye Games Brings API to Savage Worlds!

API for Savage WorldsThird Eye Games is proud to release Apocalypse Prevention, Inc. – Savage Worlds Edition! In one handy book you’ll get everything you need to know about API as a company, the demons it works with and against, and rules for using Magic, Cybernetics and Martial Arts in your Savage Worlds games. The PDF is available now, and the book has been sent to printer for future physical distribution!

Monsters and demons have existed on earth from the beginning, terrorizing humanity throughout history. But some of them decided to fight back, creating a company of like-minded beings to defend the earth from supernatural threats. Today, that company is Apocalypse Prevention, Inc.—API—a shadowy entity with its hands in every facet of life around the globe and policing supernatural activity.

Each API agent walks their own path. Some become adepts, learning magic. Others enhance their bodies with cybernetic implants, chipping away their own humanity for the greater good. Intense combat training appeals to the exceptionally self-sufficient. There are even demons that rely on their natural abilities, such as the aquatic lochs, shape-shifting changelings, or pyrotechnic burners!

Whether you specialize in one field or dabble in many, take up arms against the darkness in the fight for earth and mankind! Join API today so there will be a tomorrow for us all!


Savage Mojo’s Dungeonland Kickstarter Coming to a Close

Dungeonlands Tomb of the Lich Queen KickstarterYour chance to get in on the ground floor of Savage Mojo’s Dungeonlands: Tomb of the Lich Queen—or maybe even below it—is coming to a close! The Kickstarter is over 250% funded now, with a number of stretch goals achieved. You’ve still got a few days left to join in, and some more cool stretch goals are well within striking distance!

Dungeonlands: Tomb of the Lich Queen is an old-school fantasy killer dungeon. It takes your band of heroes deep into a labyrinth designed to keep them from their goal—freeing the angel trapped inside it! This introduction to Savage Mojo’s fantasy realm, First Age of Relic, is a combination of the epic adventure from Savage Suzerain with classics from the foundations of gaming.

With an all-star production cast and a variety of accessories and pledge rewards, the Tomb of the Lich Queen Kickstarter campaign is definitely one to check out soon!


Deadlands Noir Begins with “Tenement Men”!

Tenement Men: Deadlands Noir Dime Novel 1 Deadlands Noir kicks off with the release of Tenement Men, the first Dime Novel of the series. Currently, Tenement Men is available exclusively to the backers of the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter!* When the game is available for general sale (sometime in November), the Dime Novels will be made available to everyone. If you didn’t back the Kickstarter and can’t stand the wait, I’m afraid you’ll just have to rage in flesh-muffled anger like our friend on the cover…

This tale of hardboiled horror takes place immediately after the events of our four-part illustrated audiodrama Hardboiled in the Big Easy.  If you haven’t enjoyed that yet, catch Hardboiled in the Big Easy on YouTube!

If you were a Kickstarter backer and didn’t receive a link to Tenement Men, please contact webmaster@peginc.com to remedy that.

A Little Taste of Hell

Our good friends at Studio 2 Publishing had an idea for Hell On Earth semi-niggling at the back of their brains, gnawing around like the worm you shouldn’t drink from the glowing, green tequila.

Don’t worry your pretty little parasite-filled head about it, though, for all will be revealed next week. Well, all of the plans—hopefully not all of your brains.

But until then let’s kick off the conjecture and start the speculation with a hint of what’s to come.


Deadlands Blood Drive Continues with High Plains Drovers

Blood Drive Two: High Plains DroversThe trail is long and hard, amigo, and with beeves to move before you sleep. Your posse’s long-haul cattle drive continues with Blood Drive 2: High Plains Drovers! Starting just outside of Denver to a promised land in Wyoming, this adventure ups the ante with your cowpokes getting a share of the expanding herd. Between your new ownership and the high plains, the stakes (and steaks) have never been higher! High Plains Drovers is the second installment in the Blood Drive series.

The Blood Drive series is a complete campaign. Each adventure starts and ends in such a fashion that if you want to use it by itself without the others in the series, you can easily do so. In fact, they’re perfect for getting a posse from one part of the Weird West to another if that’s what you’re looking for, Marshal. Used together, the three combine to take the heroes from greenhorn cowpunchers to hardened trail hands fighting for their cattle, their land, and even their lives!

If you think the first book’s four words of fear (“written by John Goff”) were bad, wait’ll you get a load of “longhorns burstin’ like popcorn!” And don’t stop worryin’—it’s still written by John Goff.
