Licensee Spotlight: Children of the Apocalypse on Kickstarter

Licensee Happy Monster Press is ringing in the New Year with a month-long Kickstarter to fund Children of the Apocalypse for Savage Worlds. Children of the Apocalypse is a post-apocalyptic epic fantasy setting in which bold adventurers explore the ruins of our world, while the Nine Gods exert their influence on society, scheming for the advantage of their followers and the downfall of their enemies.

The Children of the Apocalypse setting book contains:

  • Descriptions of the Nine Gods, their followers, and their motives.
  • Eight new races created by the Nine Gods.
  • A complete description of post-apocalyptic Boston and the surrounding communities.
  • Setting rules to represent a high-magic/high-theology world.
  • A complete Plot Point campaign leading to a confrontation with the Gods themselves.
  • Guidelines for converting your own hometown into a campaign setting.

Children of the Apocalypse requires the Savage Worlds core rules and the Savage Worlds Fantasy Companion. Check out their Kickstarter and pledge your support today!

Happy Holidays from Pinnacle!

2017 was an exciting year for Pinnacle with three successful Savage Worlds Kickstarters including The Goon™ RPG, Fear Agent™ RPG, and, of course, The Savage World of Flash Gordon™. We also took our first triumphant foray into the card/board game Kickstarter market with Doomtown Reloaded (with the help of our good friends at Pine Box Entertainment).

As for Flash Gordon™, we’ll have preorders open soon for those who missed out on the Kickstarter, but right now, we’re working to get the first PDFs into the hands of our generous backers.

We also want to take a moment to thank all those awesome streamers out there who really embraced Savage Worlds on their Twitch channels in 2017 including the regular Friday night forays into the Weird West with the WildCards gang on Saving Throw, and the Happy Jack’s RPG Podcast group who have been playing Rifts® for Savage Worlds as well as Pirates of the Spanish Main.

So what do we have planned for 2018? Well, the Savage Worlds machine is currently chugging away behind the scenes (that means all of us banging on our keyboards) in hopes of bringing you the next version of Savage Worlds (codenamed “Savage Worlds Black”), followed by updated versions of both the Fantasy and Horror Companions, as well as updates and re-releases of the Deadlands Player’s Guide and Marshal’s Handbook. Note that no dates are set in stone yet, so watch this space for all the deets!

From all of us here at Pinnacle Entertainment, Happy Holidays and may all your Wild Dice Ace in the New Year!
