We’re tickled pink (if he’s good with pink) to welcome Aaron “Ace” Acevedo as the new Art Director here at Pinnacle Entertainment Group!
Aaron is a long-time friend of the company. He freelanced for Deadlands classic, Hell On Earth, Weird Wars, and a slew of Savage Worlds products over the years. We’ve not had him all to ourself, though—he’s worked on A Song of Ice & Fire, Babylon 5, Call of Cthulhu, Legend of the Five Rings, Suzerain, Warlord, and Wheel of Time properties, among others, and produces art and design for bands, comics, films, and games. He’s also art directing for Savage Mojo, one of our award-winning licensees.
As our new Art Director, Aaron is always on the lookout for new artists, cartographers, and designers. If that’s something you’re interested in, be sure to send him an e-mail if you’d like to share your portfolio.
Every crowd’s got a bad seed, but some crowds are nothin’ but bad—and two of those crowds are now comin’ your way as Savage Worlds minis!
Parts make things, and bad parts make very bad things indeed. The new Glom mini can shamble across the dusty plains of your gamin’ table as semi-livin’ proof. Buy a couple and let your posse learn a new meanin’ for “parts unknown”!
Last week, the Prairie Tick Queen crawled into town. True to form, there’s a pair of prairie tick swarms waitin’ on you now. Don’t wait on the school marm to tell you to shut your mouth, partner!
And speakin’ of crowds, that brings Reaper’s full Savage Worlds miniature line up to twenty—that’s a full score for all you Andrew Lane fans out there!
“Buy” might be a strong word—”lease” might actually be more appropriate.

Triple Ace Games continues their exploration of their frozen fantasy north with the latest Hellfrost Region Guide #50: Hrimthyr Isle.
Since the time of the Blizzard War, Hrimthyr Isle has been a bastion of evil, home to thousands of Thrym’s barbarous servants. Although the frost giants suffered a bitter defeat a century ago, their strength is building once more. Huge longships packed with giants and orcs once again plague the eastern coast, while within the walls of the mighty fortress of Jarlshof, High Ice King Nagal plans an invasion.
This supplement looks at the powers of High Ice King Nagal and the perils that await explorers to the forbidding isle of eternal winter, present four new locales, inroduces seven new prc tribes, and details four new wintry hazards.
*That’s “next-to-last” if you’re not trying to make a headline sound cool, by the way.
Everyone knows the fastest way to a man’s heart is to crawl down his gullet and burrow around in his chest. That’s what I hear from the Prairie Tick Queen, anyway, and it looks like she’s here in mini form just in time for the heartiest of holidays!
The Prairie Tick Queen is the latest—and likely the most invasive—of Reaper’s Savage Worlds minis. Whether you’re looking for love or lead in your heart, be sure to check out the full Savage Worlds miniature line today!

If you’ve been waiting for the next boot to fall for the Deadlands One-Shots, brace yourself harder. Black Water is less like a boot falling and a little more like a shotgun blast to the chest throwing you through the plate glass of the Awesome Deadlands Comics Saloon!
A rich businessman seeks the woman haunting his dreams with an obsession—one that will take him, and those unfortunate enough to tag along, on a perilous journey not all will survive in this final Deadlands One-Shot from Image Comics and Visionary Comics. It’s another Weird Western masterpiece with wordsmith Jeff Mariotte (Desperadoes) and pencil-slinger Brook Turner (GOLLY!) partnering up for a wild ride through the Great Maze! The backup series also wraps up the origin of Billy the Kid in the worlds of Deadlands!
It’s on sale now, and I don’t know what kind of Back-East tinhorn would let himself miss it!
Pinnacle Entertainment and the Savage Worlds crowd aren’t quite up to Santa standards (everywhere, all the time) yet, but we are more places more often than you might think! If we’re in your neck of the woods, come on out and see us.
Denver Gamers’ Genghis Con XXXIII will be playing host to Savage Worlds Core Rules Manager Clint Black; Reality Blurs head honcho Sean Preston; Third Eye Games founder and chief author Eloy Lasanta; and Savage podcasters Veronica Blessing, Justin Suzuki, and Ron Blessing, variously of The Game’s the Thing, Smiling Jack’s Bar and Grill, and Wombatcast.com. Don’t miss the rare west-of-the-Mississippi appearance for both Clint and Sean, February 16–19 at Red Lion Hotel in Aurora, Colorado. Besides, who knows what they’ll say in that thin mountain air!

*And guy who types these things, which is the only reason he’s first on the list.
And if you think that list of con appearances isn’t enough, you have the power to change it! If the KantCon 2012 Preregistration Kickstarter Campaign reaches its stretch goal, they’re going to import our own founder, president, luminary, and fairly-high poobah Shane Hensley, author of Savage Worlds, to KantCon 2012.
