Expand your web-based fight against the evils in the mists of the Victorian era with the newly released Rippers Companion module for Fantasy Grounds II.
New tools await both the player and the GM. Discover the curse magic of the gypsies and the angelic abilities of the Rosicrucians. For the less arcane-minded, there’s a whole section for vehicles, gear, and trained animals!
Expansions also include the Gazetteer, more allies, more heroes, more Rippertech, and more Savage Tales!
If you’ve not tried out Fantasy Grounds‘ online gaming tools, now is a good time. There is, after all, a night to be saved!
Take 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’!

Maybe we’ve just seen too many Fourth of July sales commercials, but we’re having a massive Hell on Earth celebration here at Pinnacle, and you’re not going to want to miss a thing!
First off, the Hell on Earth Reloaded Player’s Guide PDF is now available. That’s right—if you don’t want the GM section, you don’t have to pay for it! This handy little PDF comes with everything the players need to know, nothing they don’t, and a site license so you can print a copy for each player in your game! Get it from the Pinnacle PDF Store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG—your choice.
For those of you who miss the Hell on Earth Classic books or PDFs or who might want to see where everything for Hell on Earth got its start, this is your lucky, lucky day. All Hell on Earth Classic PDFs are half off! That’s right, whether you’re getting them at the Pinnacle PDF Store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG, the prices have been slashed like a wormling at a Templar reunion!
Wait! There’s more! All the Hell on Earth Classic print books are on sale at Studio 2 Publishing, too. Everything has been marked down to $5. If it was $5 already, we’ve cut the price in half! You’ll never see a blowout this big again—especially since all the ghost rock bombs are used up!
Don’t just stand there. Not only is that a good way to get your head bitten off by some mutated monstrosity, this sale doesn’t last near as long as fallout. You only get until August 31 to take advantage of us. After that, this case of radiation madness will pass and we’ll come back to our senses!
If that’s still not enough for you, the PDF for Hell on Earth Reloaded has received a host of little updates. Go get a new one today. We’ve even upped any existing download limits so it won’t cause you any heartache!
The 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!
Our good friends at Fabled Environments—best known for their excellent modern-era floor plans for gaming—have organized the Michael Rohan Memorial Fund Charity Bundle of PDFs. The bundle includes over $240 of PDFs (and keeps growing) for only $12 and is available until August 1. All net proceeds from the bundle go directly to The Michael Rohan Memorial Fund.
We at Pinnacle are proud to participate, and we’ve included two wildly popular adventures of our own—Chickens in the Mists produced by 12 to Midnight and the aggressively immersive television adventure Through the Cathode Ray Tube.
Other contributors include Arion Games, Aaron Acevedo, Britannia Game Designs, Ltd., Fabled Environments, Fat Goblin Games, GRAmel Games, Misfit Studios, Mystical Throne Entertainment, ProFantasy Software Ltd for Encompass, Reality Blurs, Savage Mojo, Scaldcrow Games, Silver Gryphon Games, Sword’s Edge Publishing, and Triple Ace Games. If you have products you publish that you’d like to add to the bundle, contact Fabled Environments.
It makes us proud to see so many members of the Savage Worlds family come together to support one of our own in such a time, when our thoughts and prayers are with the Rohan family. All the participating sponsors help remind us of the kindness and generosity in the gaming community, and we’re sure you’ll do so as well.
About the Michael Rohan Memorial Fund:
Kevin Rohan of Silver Gryphon Games lost his 6-year-old son on June 10 in the aftermath of an accident at a local water park. Seeking to turn this tragedy into community outreach, the Rohan family started the Michael Rohan Memorial Fund to help pay for swimming lessons for local families, assistance for CPR and lifeguard training, and help with grief counseling. They hope to extend their assistance beyond their local communities. One hundred percent of the money raised through the Michael Rohan Memorial Fund Charity Bundle will go to the fund and will allow them to assist other families almost immediately. If you have questions concerning the tragedy or the Michael Rohan Memorial Fund, feel free to contact Kevin Rohan directly.
The end isn’t nigh—it’s past! Welcome to Hell on Earth Reloaded, the dark future of the strange past of Deadlands.
The year is 2097, but the future is not our own. The long Cold War between the United and Confederate States of America finally came to an end—in world-wide hellfire. The rain of ghost rock bombs shattered most anything man could call civilization, cracked the space between this world and the next wide open, and birthed a true Hell on Earth.
But that was 16 years ago, and we’ve done the one thing we’re pretty good at—survive in spite of ourselves. Sure, some folks have some extra limbs, you’re likely to get killed for the scraps in your pocket, and everything east of the Mississippi is overrun with a crazed army of undead, but what other option do you have?
Join us in this dark future, where what remains cries out for new heroes while hiding from old—even ancient—villains. Has your body been wracked by the constant radiation exposure, or have you learned to channel the lingering power of the atom to your will? Remake the world as you wish. Hell, you can’t make it any worse…
Hell on Earth Reloaded is now available in PDF format (from us directly, from Studio 2 Publishing, or at DriveThruRPG). Our fulfillment partners at Studio 2 Publishing are also taking preorders for the printed book and have the Print-PDF Preorder Bundle available. The bundle is the best of both worlds—you get the PDF immediately, the printed book as soon as it’s available, and a price break!
The Weird West is a tough place to be alone, and sometimes you need a hand. Good news, amigo! We’ve got you covered!
The new Deadlands Weapons and Accessories pack brings you a set of replacement hands and bits to help you customize your Deadlands minis—heck, any minis, really—exactly the way you want ’em.
Need a gun? How about eight? From pistols to rifles to mad science, you got it. Melee weapons? Books? Cards? All there, partner. All there.
If you don’t want to make your posse face the best-armed bunch of animated hands ever, be sure to check out Reaper’s full Savage Worlds miniature line for things to customize. You make the world what you want, why not do the same to your minis?
