New SWADE VTT Accessories PLUS a Template Pack PDF

If you’re looking to upgrade your tabletops (both virtual and real world) with some bold new accessories, we’re now offering a number of new VTT accessories as well as a revised Template Pack PDF.

First up, we know many Game Masters use virtual tabletops to interact with gaming friends across the globe. While we always recommend the fantastic and fully-integrated Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop (available through Steam or any of the other available platforms), for those who use other services, we’re now offering several new bundles including the Savage Worlds Virtual Tabletop (VTT) Bennies and Templates, Status Cards and Tokens, Action, Adventure, and Power Cards, and Archetypes and Monsters, all for use with your virtual tabletop platform of choice.

Second, for face-to-face gamers, our new Template Pack (PDF) gives you arcane, fire, electric, radiation, darkness, and ice patterns. Print out as many as you need to wow your fellow heroes at the table, or make that next encounter just a little more exciting!


Can You Survive Protomen of the Black Bog?

Almost a century after the old world ended…

They came from the depths of the Black Bog, faceless, unstoppable, killing and kidnapping for some sinister purpose—the Protomen! No one can help Bogsburg’s people besides your heroes.

What terrors await within the Black Bog?

Penned by the incomparable Matthew Cutter, Protomen of the Black Bog is a post-apocalyptic Savage Tale for the Savage Worlds roleplaying game system. A copy of Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is optimal.

SWADE Conversion Docs for Rippers & ETU

Since the launch of Savage Worlds Adventure Edition, many of you have been wondering how to adapt your favorite Savage Worlds Settings to #SWADE. To that end, we are offering FREE PDF conversion docs through our online store!

This week, we uploaded new multi-page conversion documents for East Texas University and Rippers. We’ve also got documents available for The Last ParsecThe Goon™Lankhmar, and Fear Agent™. And while most of the rules as written in those original products can be used as-is, those that require a little more work are detailed in these free downloads.

With these documents in hand (along with the SWD to SWADE Conversion Notes we posted a couple weeks ago), you should be able to update certain elements quickly and with little effort so that you can keep your campaigns rolling along with as little interruption as possible.

Note: These are all “living” documents, so if you spot something we missed in any of them, please tell us on the Pinnacle forums!
