Ship Together! Deadlands: Lost Colony & Wendigo Tales Kickstarters

We are now in the home stretch for our Kickstarters for Deadlands: Lost Colony and Wendigo Tales: Book One!

As of this writing, Wendigo Tales (a Kickstarter “Project We Love”) is less than $1,500 from unlocking our next exciting Stretch Goal — Wendigo Tales: Book Zero in PDF! These three collections feature original stories of Necessary Evil, The Last Parsec, and Weird Wars by incredible authors such as John Wick (7th Sea, Legend of the Five Rings), Ed Stark (D&D, Elder Scrolls Online), Clint Black (Necessary Evil), Tim Brown (Dark Sun, The Last Parsec), Cameron Dayton (Blizzard, Activision), Christine Thompson (Star Trek Online), Kevin Andrew Murphy (MAGE, Wild Cards), Steven Long (Champions, Hero System), Ed Wetterman (East Texas University), Jon Leitheusser (WizKids), and of course our own Shane Lacy Hensley.

Should we raise at least $20,000 for Wendigo Tales, we’ll unlock an all-new Deadlands audio drama written by Scott Woodard ( Flash Gordon™ ) and featuring the voices of Hugo-award-winning artist and writer, Cheyenne Wright, as well as Pinnacle Community Manager Ron Blessing.

Meanwhile, over on the planet Banshee, our Kickstarter for Deadlands: Lost Colony recently unlocked three new ready-to-play character Archetype Cards to add to already-unlocked Harrowed Cards, Powers Cards, Figure Flats, and fiction and adventure material in PDF. And we’re now less than $1,000 from unlocking our next stretch goal — a new set of print-and-play Lost Colony-specific Power Templates!

Best of all, running both projects concurrently means supporters of both can combine their physical rewards to ship in one package! We know shipping costs can be tricky, so there’s a shipping table on the main page showing the maximum amount you’ll pay.

Help us unlock these and even more stretch goals by pledging your support and sharing these projects on social media!

Bundle of Holding to Help Our Friend Paul “Wiggy” Wade-Williams

Savage Worlds Great Deals For A Great Cause

The sheer number of Savage Worlds products out there bearing Paul “Wiggy” Wade-Williams’ name is almost without number!

Back in the early days, Wiggy was Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s Creative Director, frequent contributor, and creator of such popular Savage Settings as Slipstream, Pirates of the Spanish Main, and Necropolis (later Necropolis 2350).

Recently, Wiggy suffered a stroke that has affected his ability to communicate. It is hoped that over time and with therapy, Wiggy will be able to get back his typing and writing skills, both of which are crucial to his work.

To help him along the road to recovery, the amazing folks with Bundle of Holding are currently offering a fantastic Necropolis 2350 bundle:

Necropolis 2350 is a sci-fi horror setting set in the 24th century. In these dark days, mankind, divided into two main camps, stands on the brink of extinction. The focus of the game is on Knights of the fictional Third Reformation Church, who are locked in desperate battle against “undead” invaders known as the Rephaim. While the heroes of humanity use advanced weapons and vehicles and can call upon the power of faith, the twisted Rephaim are masters of necromancy and wield vile technology created from living tissue.

For just $7.95 USD you get all four titles in the Starter Collection (retail value $49.50 USD) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Necropolis 2350 Player’s Guide and Setting Book, six sets of full-color print-and-fold Necropolis Figure Flats, and the Necropolis 2350 GM Screen.

And if you pay more than the threshold price of $20.75 USD, you’ll level up and also get the entire Bonus Collection with six more supplements worth an additional $64 USD, including four character guides, the 200-page Necropolis Adventure Compendium, and the Necropolis 2351-55 Update, a major expansion that pushes the timeline to still more hellish depths.

Ordinarily ten percent of each Bundle of Holding purchase goes to a charity, but this benefit offer assigns that charity portion to Wiggy’s company and Savage Worlds licensee, Triple Ace Games, to help in this difficult time.

From all of us here at Pinnacle Entertainment Group, we hope you get well soon, Wiggy!

Escape from Carnage Island – An All-New Horror Savage Tale

Now available in our store!

“Carthage Island lies five miles off the northern California coast. Only a handful of top-secret maps acknowledge its existence. For those who visit its dark, primeval forests and shudder in the face of pure terror, it has another name—Carnage Island!

Escape from Carnage Island is a horror adventure for four to six heroes of Novice Rank. It’s an homage to the exploitation and grindhouse horror films of the mid-to-late ’70s (think Hell of the Living Dead, Shock Waves, or Lucio Fulci’s Zombi 2). Players can create Savage Worlds characters from virtually any walk of life, and the Game Master can set the adventure anytime from the 1950s to the present day.

Escape from Carnage Island is an all-new horror genre Savage Tale PDF for the Savage Worlds roleplaying game system written by Matthew Cutter. A copy of Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is optimal.


Get Your Hands on the Savage Worlds Collector’s Edition

Originally offered as a Kickstarter Exclusive, this gorgeous, collector’s edition of the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition core rulebook features a black leatherette cover with golden metal grommets, embroidery around the embossed logo, matching brass corner protectors on each outside edge, three bookmark ribbons, and an interior plate signed by Shane Lacy Hensley and Clint & Jodi Black (our Rules Guru and COO, respectively).

This limited, collector’s edition is full color, graphic novel size (6-5/8″ wide by 10-1/4″ high), and 208 pages, and comes with a complimentary PDF with each purchase from our website.

This is not available for retail sale, and we only have a few copies left, so order your copy today!
