Licensee Spotlight: Gun Metal Games

Gun Metal GamesWe talk a lot about Savage Worlds products that are coming out and appearances, but we don’t actually talk about the folks who make them that much. Well, we’re going to start fixing that with an new series introducing you to some of the Savage Worlds licensees, starting with Gun Metal Games.

Gun Metal Games is a small press RPG publisher since 2005. In that time, they’ve put out over 100 titles in PDF, print, and print on demand. And all their Savage Worlds games are 40% off right now to celebrate being the first in our Licensee Spotlight—and there’s that little GM’s Day sale going on…

They’ve been a Savage Worlds licensee for the last seven years, and we’ve been happy they are! They’ve brought you Totems of the Dead, Codex Infernus: The Savage Guide to Hell, Interface Zero, and the critically acclaimed Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk. They’re also busy making products for OGL, True20, Fate, and Pathfinder.

Their support for their game lines has been impressive, and they plan on continuing to support their Savage Worlds game lines as well as producing new settings and supplements for your enjoyment!

If you’ve never really looked at them before, now’s a great time to say hello to our little friend, Gun Metal Games.


PEG and PAX East Hit Boston March 10-12

PAX EastIt’s that time of year again—the time when people flock to Boston for PAX East! Joining the migration are our COO and Managing Editor Jodi Black and Savage Worlds Brand Manager Clint Black.

PAX started in 2004 with the folks at Penny Arcade who decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. After all, games are just as cool as comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies, right? Bursting out of their old venue from doubling each year, they expanded into Boston for PAX East in 2010 with tens of thousands of attendees in the inaugural year.

PAX East has tabletop boardgames (with games for all ages), console freeplay, a PC area, a handheld lounge, panels, an exhibit hall with all the con goodies, concerts and Ommegathon where the lone survivor of six games wins a trip to Japan.

Come see Clint and Jodi Black at their booth for Carolina Game Tables, booth #10109. Not only will you get to talk to two Savage Worlds luminaries that happen to be genuinely nice and interesting, but you can also get a gaming table that converts to a beautiful dining room table!

Come out to experience the fun!

PEG’s Gen Con Plans

GenCon 50

We’re preparing for Gen Con‘s 50th anniversary. We hope you can join us, and we’d absolutely LOVE to hear if you’re running a Savage Worlds game!

Forward Production Assistant Jeannine Acevedo (PEGJeannine@gmail.com) the email you received from Gen Con registering your Savage Worlds games. She’ll make a note of it and we’ll have some goodies ready for you at the Studio 2 Publishing booth:

  • Coupons for your players. Who doesn’t love swag? These $5 coupons can be used at the Studio 2 Publishing booth on Pinnacle products or used online for physical or digital purchases. Each coupon is redeemed separately.
  • A coupon for YOU, as thanks! Even one short “demo” game will get you something from us. GMs running 2 4-hour games for 6 people get a $20 coupon. But you may want to consider running 4 games. This usually grants you a free badge to Gen Con (see their website for details–you must submit for the free badge) and we’ll give you one of our new Savage Worlds Red Twill Shirts, embroidered with your name on it! That’s a $60 value or more!

You have until May 28th to request a free GM’s Badge, but don’t delay! The best time slots for running are filling up, and event (game) submission closes March 26th!

Thank you to all the Game Masters who take the time to run fantastic games for others at Gen Con. This year’s Gen Con will be epic, and we can’t wait to see you there!

Doomtown is an expandable card game set in the Deadlands™ universe. Based on the classic collectible game, Doomtown: Reloaded is a fast-paced game of gun slingin’, spell slingin’ and mud-slingin’! Use poker hands and card pulls for everything from gunfights to summoning abominations.

Doomtown: Reloaded puts you in charge of one of the four main outfits vying for control of the town called Gomorra: The Law Dogs, the Sloane Gang, the Morgan Cattle Company, and the Fourth Ring.

Up to Four Players has a new Savage Worlds campaign starting!

Upto4playersUp to Four Players is “a webcomic within a webcomic” just beginning a Savage Worlds campaign for their GM and three players. So far they’ve introduced the characters and some of the basics of character creation, including which elements of their setting are using Setting Rules.

They also have a podcast where they talk about the previous comic strip and sing their patrons’ names. Yes, they really do.

We think this is one of the many cool ways folks have used our official license. Check out Up to Four Players and subscribe—it all begins here.
