Maybe you've heard this point Savage Rifts® is over 3000% funded, with 28 stretch goals unlocked! Physical stretch goals include a set of bookmarks and a Character Folio in print (it'll be a lot like the Deluxe Character Journals we did for Rippers Resurrected). 

Please check it out today here: 

Juicers and Crazies with chainswords and plasma rifles dance, slash, and blast their way through giant war machines.

Ley Line Walkers and Mystics float among the filaments of power, driving back hordes of demons and monsters from worlds beyond. 

Glitter Boys and Cyber-Knights defend the innocent and downtrodden against countless tyrants and raiders. 

Bursters and Mind Melters wield superhuman powers of the mind to change the world.  

This is Rifts® Earth...and it's gone completely Savage!

The gonzo Megaversal adventure of Rifts® teams up with the genre-spanning easy-prep award-winning Savage Worlds system!

Deadlands Update and Weird War I!

1 like

Howdy, pardners! We've launched a new Kickstarter and figured it was a good time to touch base.

This is the year of Deadlands' 20th anniversary and we have some cool stuff lined up. That's all we can say for now...keep up to date on the most recent information from Pinnacle about Deadlands, Savage Worlds, and other newsworthy information from our licensees by subscribing to the weekly e-newsletter.

The World is at War! 

We’re posting this message on all our previous Kickstarters (so our apologies to those loyal folks who are getting multiple notifications) to let you know Weird War I is on Kickstarter now! 

The Twilight Legion has so far marched across the battlefields of Rome, Vietnam, and World War II. Now our intrepid soldiers, sailors, airmen, and even civilians must endure the mud and trenches of the Great War. 

Weird War I funded quickly and just unlocked a fourth stretch goal: In Vito Veritas, a full Plot Point Campaign! Try a mission from the other side and deal with an ancient power aroused by the carnage of the Great War. (Remember, this is World War I...the Germans are the aggressors, but they are not the Nazis.) 

Weird War I also features a new Narrative Mission system to simulate relatively mundane patrols, air raids, and coastal runs, giving you some story-based memories for your character and allowing the War Master to focus on the more intriguing encounters with the dark things that rise in the horror and violence of war! 

You'll also find new Edges and Hindrances, rules for Ceremonial Magic, Battlefield Hazards, an Adventure Generator, full Plot Point Campaign, and of course the Weird history of World War I and fresh horrors for the War Master to create her own adventures.

Rippers Resurrected Kickstarter!


We figure there are plenty of you who have already heard about (and backed) our newest Kickstarter for Rippers Resurrected. But just in case you haven't...

Welcome to Rippers, a roleplaying game of gothic supernatural horror, where Victorian era monster hunters—the Rippers—fight the fearsome creatures of the night. 

Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you. 

 --Friedrich Nietzsche 

 Kickstarter link (ALREADY FUNDED!) 

Rippers fight the terrors of the night: werewolves, vampires, and other horrors that stalk the earth preying on humanity. 

These foul monsters boast superhuman strength and supernatural powers. The Rippers must use everything at their disposal to resist them. Some invest in the latest technology—incredible devices of iron and steel powered either by steam or, more recently, by electricity. Others practice ancient magic or perform holy miracles. A rare few bravely (or foolishly) wield arcane biotechnology “ripped” from the very creatures they hunt. 

Whatever the methods, all are united in their dedication to protect mankind from the monsters that stalk the night. The Rippers’ struggle against evil rages on largely unknown to the wider world. 

Rippers Resurrected Products in this Kickstarter

The Rippers Resurrected Kickstarter project funds an unholy host of new products, starting with two core books: the Player's Guide and the Game Master's Handbook. The Kickstarter also offers: 

  • a GM Screen with Lord of the Underworld adventure, 
  • two Combat Maps (Castle Dracula! Jack the Ripper's alleys!), 
  • specialty Dice, 
  • Bennies
  • a Dual Action Deck featuring art by multiple Hugo award-winning artist Cheyenne Wright (he made the Kickstarter video for Rippers too!), 
  • and bundle options with the Savage Tales of Horror line (Volumes 1–3)

Thank You

Thank you, again, for supporting Pinnacle so strongly in the past. We couldn't make cool games like these without you. :)

A Quick Aside...for CONAN!

Hello my friends! We're very careful about cross-posting other projects on these updates to respect your time and energy, so we'll keep this short and sweet.  

These Priests of Set show off the level of detail on these premium PREPAINTED minis. :)

One of the other Kickstarters we're involved in is called Conan: Rise of Monsters. It's an amazing, PREMIUM prepainted miniatures game set in Robert E Howard's Hyboria. The gameplay is fast, furious, fun just like Savage Worlds, and the paint jobs on the miniatures are the absolute best you can get in this category. Take a look for yourself at the link above, and check out the gameplay videos here: Conan Update.

I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd check the game out, but most importantly, help us reach those more casual gamers who don't follow these kinds of projects like some of us do. Those of us who don't want to cut thousands of pieces of plastic off sprues, glue them together, prime them, and paint them, are our target audience, and are also the hardest people to reach--so I'm asking for your help.

Now we'll get back to YOUR project here--apologies for the diversion and THANKS in advance for your help. :) 


Latest from PEG: The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter (Already Funded!)


It's been awhile since we first stepped into the realm of Kickstarter with Deadlands Noir. Through the past few years many of you have supported our other Kickstarter projects—thank you! 

Now we invite you to check out The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter, our latest setting. We think you Deadlands fans will LOVE this. The Sixth Gun RPG, based on the award-nominated comic series from Oni Press, offers a different taste of the Weird West. Imagine the perils of a Hangin' Judge armed with the Fourth Gun, or a Thunderbird rampage straight out of Hell's Half Acre! Pit your posse against General and Missy Hume, or see how the Six Guns match up against the hundreds of critters from books like Grim Prairie Trails.

And if you have a hankerin' to play in a game at Gen Con this summer Game Mastered by The Sixth Gun writer CULLEN BUNN...with The Sixth Gun RPG author SCOTT WOODARD at the table...and artist BRIAN HURTT sitting nearby doodling a piece of original art in your copy of the book...then better head on over quick! The True Fan of The Sixth Gun reward level will go fast!

Best of all, The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter just hit goal and is now funded! Thanks, amigos y amigas, for helping us spread the word. :)
