Set a reminder for next Tuesday, November 20th for the launch of the Crystal Heart Kickstarter from Aviv Or and Eran Aviram.
“In a world where people’s hearts are made of stone, special Agents of the mysterious organisation Syn can replace their hearts with ancient Crystals, which grant them superpowers – but also affect their personality and moods in unpredictable ways.
Inspired by anime and superhero comics, the Crystal Heart setting was developed in the webcomic Up to Four Players as the characters were playing it. Now you too can become a Syn Agent, explore ancient locations and hunt down powerful Crystals!”
Grab the free, 21-page, fully-illustrated Crystal Heart Starter Set today to get the rules for using Crystals, six ready-to-play Agents, a one-shot adventure, a summary sheet with all the necessary Crystal rules, and a two-page comic explaining how to play Savage Worlds!

We hope you all have been enjoying the stream (some of us here at Pinnacle, including Jodi, Shane, and Clint, have been watching live and interacting with everyone in the chat room) and next Monday, November 12th, the series wraps up with the chilling finale of Last Rites of the Black Guard.
Con Plus is an annual, online, 24-hour game convention which raises funds for charity. This year’s convention, known as Con+1, took place on Saturday, November 3rd, and Doomtown players donated over $550 to Child’s Play, a charity that provides games and other happy-inducing things to terminally ill children.
“Grab a Death Certificate…um, character sheet and jump into the meat grinder!
The Savage Worlds Brand Manager and Black Judge himself, Clint Black, is previewing the newest edition of the game in the most Savage way possible. For four straight hours he will kill characters in the most gruesome ways imaginable (and possibly a few never imagined before). Six players enter and when one dies, a new player can jump in their place up to the last 15 minutes of the game. Playing only requires a $1 donation…for a character with no Bennies! For a $5 donation, the character enters with one Benny or, only when first entering the game, they can start with the maximum of 5 Bennies for just $20! During the game, players can purchase up to the five maximum Bennies but each costs $5. On top of that, spectators can `Grease the Grinder!` Every $5 donated adds +1d6 to the damage one character takes up to a maximum of +4d6 for $20.”
First of all, our sincere thanks once again to everyone who has already pledged their support and helped spread the word about our current Kickstarter for the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. We’re funded at $320, ooo and climbing!
This week we shared additional Stretch Goals (up to $350K) including:
$305K – Music to Game With 2 – Terror in Texas by fan-favorite composer, Harry Mack
$310K – Mini-Setting 3: Tesla Rangers (PDF) by Pinnacle/Arcane Times/Girl Genius artist and three-time Hugo Award winning artist Cheyenne Wright
$345K – Virtual Table Top Bundle – a core package of the most important accessories you can adapt and customize for your chosen virtual platform
$350K – Red in the Rain Poster by artist Konrad Korgull (Print included in the Savage Worlds Essentials Boxed Set only)
Second, we have added dozens of JumpStarts from a number of our Aces (our vetted licensees). These JumpStarts are completely playable introductions to licensed worlds and adventures featuring samples of backgrounds along with setting material, Edges, Hindrances, gear, Setting Rules, creatures, and anything else one might need to play. And best of all, these playable settings are bundled together for all backers at Digital and above!
First up, Matthew Cutter takes the posse into the Weird West with House at the Edge o’ Nowhere. This challenging adventure for Deadlands is intended for a posse composed of Veteran or higher Rank heroes. You have been warned!
Second, Ben Meginnis presents the Triton Industries Catalog for Rifts® for Savage Worlds featuring new underwater weapons, armor, vehicles, and more.
And last, but certainly not least, Matt Cutter continues the Savage Tales of the Red Band series for The Last Parsec with Escape from Kalran, the third part in this ongoing, intergalatic series.
