Recently, Nerdarchist Dave (of Nerdarchy) sat down (virtually, anyway) with our own Clint Black for a casual chat about Savage Worlds, live-streaming RPGs (from Geek & Sundry to Saving Throw), and Carolina Game Tables. Find out exactly how Clint balances our Savage Worlds game system for Pinnacle Entertainment Group, learn about some of our many Savage Worlds lines (including Lankhmar and Necessary Evil), and get a little inside scoop about the Flash Gordon Roleplaying Game coming soon to Kickstarter. “Gordon’s ALIVE?!”
Clint even gets a chance to talk a bit about his legendary Savage Worlds convention games, Arcti-Gator vs. Croco-Sharkasaurus as well as it’s out-of-control sequel, Arcti-Gator Rex vs. Robo-Croco-Sharkasaurus (neither of which is coming soon to Syfy).

Savage Foes of Nehwon is now available for immediate PDF purchase and print preorder! They say there’s someone for everyone—with over 100 characters from the Fritz Lieber’s classic Lankhmar stories and fifty creature entries, that’s definitely true in Lankhmar!
You also get three complete Savage Tales ready to go with the materials in Savage Foes of Nehwon as well as a complete Adventure Generator for the world of Nehwon. Never be without an adventure again!
The summer of sword-and-sorcery isn’t finished yet, though! Keep watching for the Lankhmar GM’s Screen and a full-fledged adventure, The Eyes of Goro’mosh, coming in July.
If you’ve already preordered Savage Foes of Nehwon, it should already be in your downloads section on the Pinnacle Web Store, ready for you to grab at your leisure.
You can still get a Lankhmar Bundle for reduced shipping costs or update a prior bundle order with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org! The mean streets of Lankhmar aren’t likely to let you keep your money, so let us help you while we can.
There are several new campaign settings in the works for Savage Worlds. We’re not promising you’ll see all these in a week or two—in fact, I’d probably lose a finger if I typed any dates at all! But these are a taste of what’s in the works.
East Texas University lets you enroll in 12 to Midnight’s campy campus college horror setting. Degrees of Horror gives you a full-length Plot Point Campaign to go from freshmen all the way through graduation and discover the secrets of Pinebox and Golan County—if you survive. And just because the monsters don’t kill you doesn’t mean the exams won’t—passing finals can be a real killer!
The Last Parsec is our next Kickstarter, and it will take you into the depths of known space and beyond! Exploring new planets for JumpCorp, each new mission will make wildly different demands. Powered by the Savage Worlds Science Fiction Companion, each Plot Point Campaign focuses on a different planet. Scientorium will take you to an immense artifact containing unimaginable knowledge, undreamed technologies, and untold danger. Eris Beta-V is a magnificent ringed gas giant with numerous moons, each a world of its own, and a dense field of asteroids and debris. When a threat to the system arises, will it be something your team can handle? Leviathan introduces you to the most dangerous game in the Known Worlds, with mammoth lacerauns more massive and cunning than most would ever imagine. But a world untouched by civilization is a draw to more than just hunters, and the other may be far more threatening!
The Sixth Gun series comes to RPGs! The First of the Six strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads Perdition’s flames. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. And the Sixth is the key to rewriting the world. Are you ready to saddle up and ride into the savage world of The Sixth Gun? Based on the Eisner and Harvey Award nominated comic series from Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurt, and OniPress. Watch for more details to come, as well as more accessories, including custom miniatures of the characters from the comics!
The Savage World of Lankhmar brings Fritz Leiber’s gritty world of urban fantasy into Savage Worlds, shepherded by Tim Brown (of Dark Sun and Dragon King fame) and our own Shane Hensley (who wrote the Lankhmar boxed set for TSR back in 1997)! Watch for Lankhmar: City of Thieves, detailing the city itself and its most important players—including Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. Savage Foes of Nehwon brings you the most insidious threats—powerful sorcerers, terrible creatures, and ruthless villains—with adventure seeds and Savage Tales to really fill out a campaign. Savage Tales of the Thieves’ Guild is a thematically linked series of adventures that can be run individually or knitted into a Plot Point Campaign of their own, all churning around Cheap Street’s activities. And watch for accessories like premium metal miniatures and the Lankhmar Game Master’s Screen, too.
