SWADE Conversion for The Savage World of Flash Gordon™

The Flash Gordon™ RPG setting was originally written for Savage Worlds Deluxe (incorporating a fistful of prototype rules that eventually popped up in #SWADE), but it’s easy to update and make fully-compatible with Savage Worlds Adventure Edition.

While most of the rules can be used as-is, those that require a little more work are detailed in this FREE download.

With this two-and-a-half page document in-hand (along with the SWD to SWADE Conversion Notes we posted a few months ago), you should be able to update certain elements quickly and with little effort so that you can keep your Savage World of Flash Gordon™ campaign rocketing forward with as little interruption as possible.

This is a “living” document, so if you spot something we missed in it, please tell us in the Pinnacle forums!


Wildcards Marshal’s Notes—Free PDF

A few months back, while our Kickstarter for Deadlands: the Weird West was still chugging along, our good friends with Saving Throw and WildCards presented an original, two-part actual play stream of the latest and greatest edition.

Check out BOTH epic installments of Deadlands: Lawless in the Saving Throw video archive over on YouTube.

As a terrific supplement for this exciting adventure, legendary Marshal Jordan Caves-Callarman has written a five-page PDF titled Wildcards Marshal’s Notes.

This FREE document presents a detailed outline of the adventure, some exciting post-game highlights, stats for a couple original critters, and awesome suggestions for handling Critical Failures in your Savage Worlds games.

Our thanks to Jordan and the entire cast and crew of Wildcards for putting it all together!

“FINGER GUNS! *pew!* *pew!*”


FREE Chase Examples for Savage Worlds

Chases have captivated movie audiences for decades. The Savage Worlds Chase mechanics were designed to capture that excitement and provide a means to handle fast-moving vehicles, mounted combat, and foot pursuits on the tabletop.

To help you wrap your head around how this all works, we’re including tips and illustrated examples in this new, FREE downloadable PDF.

Put the pedal to the metal and follow along with step-by-step examples of foot chases, a high-speed car chase, and even a deep space dogfight!

This product requires the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition rules to play.

FREE PDF Errata Bookmark for Deadlands: Lost Colony

Mysterious forces have interfered with the upcoming printed edition of the Deadlands: Lost Colony core rulebook resulting in a couple minor issues with the way Fear Levels are presented.

While the PDF version has already been corrected, each physical book that leaves our warehouse will be accompanied by a printed bookmark with errata. Until then, you can download a free PDF of this bookmark from our store and print out as many as you want for your players!

The error in question occurs on pages 63 and 100: The penalty to Fear checks isn’t the Fear Level itself, but -1 for each Fear Level after 2 (so -1 at Fear Level 3, -2 for Fear Level 4, and so on).

We also added this under Creatures on page 179: “Fear: Supernatural creatures are born of the Reckoning and ignore Fear Level penalties.”

Download and print this bookmark to ensure you’re all playing with FEAR correctly!


FREE Form-Fillable Deadlands: Lost Colony Character Sheet

To keep track of all those colonists wandering about the surface of Banshee (or traveling among the stars above), we present to you our FREE, form-fillable, PDF character sheet for use with Deadlands: Lost Colony!

And while you’re downloading that indispensable item, be sure to grab all our other print-and-play PDF freebies for Lost Colony including our Harrowed Cards, Power Cards, and Power Templates imbued with wild purple energy trappings!

First off, we want to tip our hats to thank all of you for your enthusiasm and support. We really couldn’t do this without you and we hope you’ll continue to spread the word about Deadlands: the Weird West.

At the launch of the Kickstarter, several of you posted photos of yourself in Western gear, brandishing past covers of Deadlands, and other cool ways to represent your love for our little game. We felt it was only right to share!

Second, we’re very excited to announce that our good buckaroos with Saving Throw and WildCards will be saddling up for a sneak peek of Deadlands: the Weird West in a special, two-episode arc beginning this Sunday, May 3rd, at 6pm Pacific. Set a reminder to watch ’em LIVE on Twitch and then catch the archived episodes on their YouTube channel.

Third, to whet your whistle while you wait (and that is a LOT of alliteration, by the way), we present a FREE sneak peek of one of the most horrifying abominations in all the Weird West… the dreaded Hangin’ Judge, all gussied up for the new edition of Deadlands: the Weird West!

Fourth, anyone who offers proof of their collected pledge for Deadlands: the Weird West can snag a Doomtown Base Set PLUS a sweet deck tin for only $20! Just email [email protected] after the Kickstarter ends to get in on this incredible deal!

And finally, speaking of abominations from the Weird West, we just had to share this pic of some bloated Prairie Tick Queen minis masterfully painted up by Cedric Chin. We got itchy just lookin’ at these creepy-crawlies. Great job, Cedric!

The Deadlands: the Weird West Kickstarter continues for another two weeks, but if you’re as much a fan of the Weird West as we are, you won’t want to miss a minute of the fun! Saddle up today!
