It’s been a big year here at Pinnacle, and we’ve been very happy to have you be such a big part of that!
Old friends returned to us in 2012. 50 Fathoms: Explorer’s Edition brought one our earliest settings to a new generation of Savage Worlds fans, rules, and format! The ghost rock bombs rained again with the release of Hell on Earth: Reloaded, updating the dark future of Deadlands with a new hardback core rule book. Prerelease copies sold out almost immediately, but we’re expecting the full supply for an early 2013 treat!
We also had our first Kickstarter campaign—Deadlands Noir—which was wildly successful! We weren’t sure you’d want a non-Western Deadlands, but now we know! Some of the PDFs are available now, others are coming soon, and the whole initial line will be delivered in 2013.
The Savage Worlds miniatures line continued to expand. Our publishing services partner, Studio 2 Printing, even ran a Hell on Earth minis Kickstarter campaign to help speed up 2013’s minis for the Wasted West!
Speaking of minis, even our core rules shrank! Savage Worlds Deluxe was rereleased as Savage Worlds Deluxe: Explorer’s Edition. Not only was it a great day for fans of the smaller paperback format, but it was a great day for fans of the core rules being $9.99! That’s right, we were able to roll our prices back to 2003!
The Deadlands line kept coming on strong in 2012 with several adventures, a Plot Point Campaign, minis, and custom maps. Be sure to check out Deadlands products on the Pinnacle PDF Store and at Studio 2 Publishing for the full low-down, but here’s the quick list:
- The Blood Drive Series (Bad Times on the Goodnight, High Plains Drovers, and Range War!)
- Ghost Towns
- Temple of the Sun Tile Map
- Return to Manitou Bluff
- Trail Guides, Volume 1 (includes South o’ the Border, The Great Northwest, and Weird White North)
- Guess Who’s Coming to Donner
- The Last Sons
- Seventeen new 2012 minis!
And, perhaps most importantly of all, 2012 gave us more of you! Getting to see our fans and supporters at conventions and to talk with you on the Pinnacle Forum (which may be one of the most pleasant places the internet has to offer) continues to be one of the very best parts of our jobs!
Last year was great, and we expect 2013 to be even better! Get ready, and get gaming!
