A Little Update on Sara

saraFor those who may not have been following along, one of our own, Pinnacle webmaster Sara Quinn, was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. After Sara and her husband Brendan (collectively known as Squid & Crow) worked out all the deets with their insurance company (and raised additional funds thanks to the generosity of so many of you in the Savage community), Sara underwent surgery over the weekend.

So far it looks like everything went extremely well (Sara has actually posted a few updates online) and we couldn’t be happier for her!

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone for your support and we all look forward to Sara making a quick and full recovery!

Handing Over the Keys to Motobushido

motobushidoA couple years back, Pinnacle Entertainment Group‘s Prez, Shane Hensley, discovered a unique tabletop RPG from designer Nathanael Cole. Titled Motobushido: The Motorcycle-Samurai Roleplaying Game and described as Seven Samurai meets Sons of Anarchy, this game of cycle-riding samurais lets players fight for justice and honor against the new Dominion that lords over the Crimson Isles with a chrome gauntlet.

While a deal was originally struck with Pinnacle to turn Motobushido into an official, fully-realized Savage Setting, the development of various lines and other products in-house had Motobushido waiting patiently on the sidelines for an available production slot.

With so many other projects on the horizon for Pinnacle, Shane has decided that the best thing to do is to release this incredible game back into the creator’s hands with the full support of Pinnacle‘s staff to get it all done right and out into the world. To quote Shane in discussing the future of Motobushido, “I just want to play it!”

We wish Nathanael all the best, and if you want to keep up with its development, visit Motobushido‘s website where you can download content and even sign up to playtest the all-new Motobushido: Crimson Blossoms, a complete Savage reimagining of the original game!
