Return to Manitou Bluff Available for Preorder

Return to Manitou BluffDuring the Battle of Lost Angels, a catastrophic earthquake tore Clover Mesa into four parts and revealed a motherlode of ghost rock at its center. Everyone from Kang’s triad to the Union to the Wasatch Rail Co. is after its riches, and they’ll do whatever it takes to seize them.

But Clover Mesa wasn’t always an object of desire. It used to be a dumping ground for the dregs of Maze society, and it was known by a different name back then—Manitou Bluff.

Return to Manitou Bluff is an adventure for Legendary Rank heroes, including all the people, places, and plots you need to run this epic tale. Take care, amigo! Things aren’t always what they seem, and sometimes death—or somethin’ worse—is hiding just around the bend. If your Legendary posse is looking for more excitement after completing The Flood, there’s no better place to send ’em than Manitou Bluff!

If you’ve got a ghoulish sort of curiosity, you might want to check out the Special Perdition Supplement of the Tombstone Epitaph. Read what the finest paper in the Weird West has to say about Clover Mesa without spending a nickel—plug, wooden, buffalo, or otherwise.

Get your copy of Return to Manitou Bluff in PDF today (from the Pinnacle PDF store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG), preorder a print copy, or get the best of  both worlds with the Print-PDF bundle (get the PDF immediately, the print copy as soon as it’s available, and a discount on the pair)!

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.
