Savage Worlds Deluxe Map Pack Joins Free Downloads!

Savage Worlds Deluxe Map PackAll the maps from the One Sheet Adventures in the Savage Worlds Deluxe books have been compiled into one free download for you—the Savage Worlds Deluxe Map Pack!

Want to print the maps as handouts for your players? Not a problem! Add or remove the backgrounds and the map titles as you like—the PDF is fully layered for your customization.

Be sure to check out the rest of our free downloads while you’re at it. You never know what wonders you’ll find.

We’ve kept the maps at a large size with a high resolution, so the file’s a little larger than you might think a six-page freebie would be. You may be better served to right-click and Save Link As (or comparable command in your browser) to save the file before trying to open it.


Shedding Some Light on Deadlands Noir

Deadlands NoirIn all the hustle and bustle of the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter, it may not be perfectly clear what would be available for the Deadlands Noir line.

Deadlands Noir (the core rule book for the line) and the Deadlands Noir Companion (adding martial artists, Sykers, the Blessed, Chicago, Shan Fan, Lost Angels, and the incredible City of Gloom) are currently available as PDFs and both will be widely available in print format. The current target release date for those is late July to early August for Kickstarter backers with general retail release two weeks later. Both books are available for preorder and in Print-PDF Bundles (get the PDF now, the book as soon as it’s available, and all at a discount)!

The Deadlands Noir miniatures and printed versions of the Deadlands Noir Figure Flats, Metaire Cemetery Map, Old Absinthe House Map, Streets of the Big Easy Map, and Bayou Map will also be available on the same schedule as the books. The PDFs are available now to the appropriate Kickstarter backers, and will be available to everyone when the printed copies go on sale.

The Deadlands Noir Dice and the Deadlands Noir Bennies will be shipped to Kickstarter backers with the books, and the remaining stock will be released for purchase with the rest of the Deadlands Noir line. These products will remain web exclusives and will not be available in normal retail channels.

The Deadlands Noir badges remain exclusive to Kickstarter backers.

Kickstarter backers can get existing PDF products from the Noir Backers Downloads page and should expect their final survey (to pin down shipping details and their orders) in early July. The rest of you can watch this space for updates or sign up for our Pinnacle E-Mail Updates to get the news straight to your inbox.

Templates for Templates for Savage Worlds

Savage Worlds Template SpecificationsThe basic dimensions of the burst and cone templates are described in the Savage World Deluxe rulebooks, and the Savage Worlds Templates are available from the free downloads page. But some of you have been asking for a little bit more…and here it is.

The Savage Worlds Template Specification document details the dimensions of the templates and their construction (mostly handy for the cone template). You can also isolate the template outlines to print blanks or place into your own graphics programs.

Now you can completely customize the templates for your home and con games. You can even have a different template for every trapping if you like. Heck, there’s just no stopping you now!

While you’re at it, be sure to check out the other free stuff from our Downloads page. There’s no telling what else you might find out there!
