ETU and WW:Rome Take Dungeon Crawlers Radio Honors

Dungeon Crawlers RadioDungeon Crawlers Radio just released their Best Games of 2014 list, and East Texas University continues its string of critical acclaim!* That’s right, East Texas University made their top ten list at number four. Who says college isn’t for everyone, even when it’s actively trying to kill you?

That Savage Worlds love didn’t end there, either. They broke their own one-product-per-company rules with their five honorable mentions, including Weird Wars Rome. Clearly, these are some right-thinking people of taste and discernment. Or maybe they’ve just got a thing for settings where it’s okay to wear sandals all the time.

Either way, be sure to check out the full list of Dungeon Crawlers Radio Best Games of 2014 and take a look at both East Texas University and Weird Wars Rome. You won’t never regret it. There’s even something extra for the Deadlands and Doomtown fans, too.

* For instance, remember just last week when I told you about East Texas University and  Melior Via’s Accursed both doing so well in the Most Unread Blog’s Top Six Birthday Blog Giveaway to rankings?

ETU Hits Finals with Kelley’s Bane One-Sheet

Kelley's Bane One-Sheet Adventure for East Texas UniversityWhat a long strange trip it’s been. I can’t believe we started out at East Texas University together earlier this summer, and now we’re finished.

That’s right, folks. With Kelley’s Bane—the new One-Sheet Adventure for ETU—we finish up all the stretch goals from the East Texas University/Degrees of Horror Kickstarter. But that doesn’t mean it’s the end. We’ll always be Best Fiends Forever! Keep watching for more things from Pinebox and its local university…or it might sneak up on you!

Speaking of Kelley’s Bane, what do you do when people start turning up headless around campus? Well, the heads aren’t missing so much as they just aren’t attached any more. But, still, that doesn’t seem like something you’ll want in the next recruiting brochure, does it? Get the latest totally free One-Sheet Adventure for ETU for a low-prep round of campus adventure. Just watch out, because some things actually go “bite” in the dark!
