Update #50

High Rez Figure Flats

Hi Gumshoes!

We heard from some of you that the Figure Flats printed a little poorly, so we increased the resolution. You can find the file at the usual download site HERE.

In case you didn't see it, we also released a brand spankin' new adventure by Jason Mical and John Goff called "The Case of the Jumbo Shrimp."

This will likely be our final post on this project. Thanks *so* much for your fantastic support and feedback. Backers like *you* mean everything to creators like us, and we thank you from the bottom of our twisted little hearts.

Or as we might say in Deadlands Noir...

They were a bunch of hardcases. Tough but fair. They could look at you like you were an octopus in a hat one minute, then like you were their best Joe or Sally the next. They wanted a lot, but they were willing to take care of you if you did good work. They knew how to tell you where you screwed up and when you did just fine.

They could dish out the hits like a prize fighter proving something to all the playground bullies who whupped him when he was little. And they could pat you on the back and make you feel like a million clams like that lunch lady with the cold hands and the big heart who always gave you an extra scoop o' gravy on your biscuits.

They were the best. They were better than the best. They were kings and queens. They were the kinda royalty that grew up on Gygax and Traveller and still had a hankerin' for that old familiar feeling. They wanted to roll dice and fight bad guys and walk away heroes.

And that's what we delivered. We gave 'em the tools and maybe a little inspiration and some twisted freaks to battle and they took 'em. They fought the good fight and laughed while they did it. They told the tale and spit in Death's face, guns blazing, knives slashing, or mumbo-jumboing.

They stalked the dark streets of New Orleans, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Shan Fan, and even poor, damned Lost Angels. And their tale ain't over yet. In fact, it's just beginning...

Getting the Last Orders Shipped (Important)

Hi all! Since we didn't use Kickstarter's Final Survey tool, we still haven't heard from everyone to get their address and addons. If that's you, look at all this cool stuff you don't have in your hands just yet:

We're now going to use the Final Survey tool to point everyone who hasn't yet responded to our addon page. If you have, simply click through to the survey without doing anything further. The rest of you need to follow the instructions sent in the survey.

We hope you're enjoying Deadlands Noir, and we'll see some of you at GenCon next week!

***

Here's the message you'll see in the Final Survey--remember, ignore it if you've already given us your info: 

Hi! We're almost finished shipping to everyone who gave us their name, address, and addons after Update #45. If you didn't, please go to: *** http://noir.peginc.com/ *** and log in using your Kickstarter email, just like you did to download all the digital files. Once logged in, follow the link on that page (http://noir.peginc.com/addon) to give us your address (mandatory), and add on any additional products you want included in your shipment. If there's a problem, email sales@peginc.com and we'll help you out.


Update #48

Shipping, Black Hand, and Rome!

Hi all!

Just wanted to let you know that Studio2 says they're about halfway through the Deadlands Noir orders. We'll let you know when everything is out the door so you can email us if you haven't seen yours.

Tales of the Black Hand

Our next offering for Deadlands Noir is a multi-part adventure called Tales of the Black Hand--featuring four connected tales of the New Orleans' mafia and their strange bid to gather corpses for some of the city's oldest...and strangest...families.

Weird Wars Rome!

We also wanted to let you know about our next Kickstarter for Weird Wars Rome! Please check it out, and if you're so inclined, spread the word. :)

    Mayor: We'll work with you to make you or a character of your design the Mayor of one of the four cities in our Deadlands Noir Companion! Each section is smaller than the treatment we're giving Mayor McKendrew of the Big Easy (see that reward), so the price of graft and corruption is less as well. For your campaign contribution, you'll get the Shamus reward (that's every product we're making for Deadlands Noir in PDF and print) as well as an 8.5 x 11 portrait of your character against his city's backdrop or a local landmark of your choice. And if you make it to GenCon 2012 with a valid badge, you'll be in one of our exclusive premiere playtests as well! Finally, we're reserving a Savage Worlds Deluxe Hardback--which are just about sold out and won't be reprinted in that form--and adding them to ALL Mayor and Night Stalker rewards to go along with your new books and other swag!
