About

 A HUGE announcement today! Wendigo Tales Book ZERO AND an incredible and unique Stretch Goal! 

Wendigo Tales Volume 0 Now Added to the Rewards!

Long ago we promised we'd print the original three "Seasons" of Wendigo Tales, originally released only in electronic format. These anthologies covered...

  •  Necessary Evil: Villains must rise when the super heroes of the world are defeated by a tricky alien invasion! The fate of the world lies with the scum of the earth!
  •  The Last Parsec: The beings of JumpCorp explore, protect, and colonize new worlds across a thousand galaxies.
  •  Weird Wars: Dark things rise in the fear and terror of warfare throughout the ages. (This volume contains the first tale of Magnus Bos the gladiator, continued in Volume 1!) 

Given several requests and knowing now that the ALL NEW Wendigo Tales BOOK ONE is moving ahead, we've decided to print the original three seasons as BOOK ZERO!

You can order them in print as an Add On or increase your Reward Level to All In, AND if we hit the $10,000 Stretch Goal, ALL backers will receive PDF copies of all three Book Zero anthologies.

These incredible stories feature incredible authors such as John Wick (7th Sea, Legend of the Five Rings), Ed Stark (D&D, Elder Scrolls Online), Clint Black (Necessary Evil), Tim Brown (Dark Sun), Cameron Dayton (Blizzard, Activision), Christine Thompson (Star Trek Online), Kevin Andrew Murphy (MAGE, Wild Cards), Steven Long (Champions, Hero System), Ed Wetterman (ETU), Jon Leitheusser (WizKids), and of course our own Shane Lacy Hensley.

If you'd like a complete list of the stories included in these books, check out the Weird Wars, Last Parsec, and Necessary Evil ebooks listed in the Wendigo Tales section of our website!

Now back to the main project, the launch of our NEW Wendigo Tales line with ONGOING characters!

STORIES TO THRILL AND TERRIFY

From the haunted deserts of the Weird West to the Big Easy’s desolate cemeteries... across the Poisoned Plains of Hell on Earth with psycho bikers in hot pursuit... through the doldrums and damnation of a semester at East Texas University... and into the heart of a monstrous conflagration as Rome burns... daring heroes emerge to explore unique and varied times and places!

Wendigo Tales: Book One. Cover by Aaron J. Riley!

 If we exceed our goal, the Wendigo will add a few additional physical or digital surprises to your collection! Let's start with these!

 Help us unlock more stretch goals by sharing the project! Here's where you can find us on social media: 

Wendigo Tales: Book One is already in final proofing. Your support helps us print the book and make the extras. This means delivery of the main PDFs about a month after funding and the physical products about 5 months later depending on the printer and shipping.

Digital Rewards

We deliver PDF materials through the Pinnacle website and through DriveThruRPG. 

The final book will be delivered in ePub, mobi, and PDF formats. 

Physical Rewards

We have another Kickstarter running RIGHT NOW, for Deadlands: Lost Colony, in the Games category! 

You can bundle the rewards from both Kickstarters to save on shipping. You will pay for shipping after the Kickstarter using a pledge manager. 

We promise Kickstarter backers will not pay MORE than what is listed here:

All prices in USD and based on estimates calculated October 2019.

 What about the new Volume Zero Books?

It takes a few days to calculate shipping projections, friends! We'll update the shipping table once we've finished checking all our sources.  

Customs and Taxes for EU, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand

Our fulfillment partners handle most customs paperwork and pay the taxes for international backers living in the EU, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, so you don't have to! The above shipping rates include those taxes and fees for paperwork. 

To save on international shipping, consider having one friend pledge for your group, adding on additional books to a single package. You should also encourage your local retailer to pledge $1 so they can order directly from us (before it hits regular distribution). Then you can buy the physical product from your favorite local game store, while you pledge at a digital reward level so you don't miss out on the digital Stretch Goals.

International retailers receive a discounted rate for shipping which they may pass along to customers, but the more they buy the cheaper the shipping becomes for everyone! The store also receives product before retail release and may restock other product with their order. 

We Ship Anywhere in the World 

Email site.admin@peginc.com for an estimate to ship to your location if you don't see it above.  You can also use the handy calculator at USPS.com (Medium flat rate box for most rewards; Large box for Boxed Set rewards).

Delivery for Merchants

All retailers located in the contiguous United States receive free shipping. Retailers in Hawaii, Alaska, and outside the United States receive discounted shipping. We recommend retailers sign up for our Savage Retailer newsletter here. Customers of Savage Retailers may request complimentary PDFs of books purchased by emailing site.admin@peginc.com. 

 Any Questions? Email Pinnacle customer service at site.admin@peginc.com

Risks and challenges

Full transparency... we're printing Wendigo Tales: Volume One no matter what and have the funds to do so.
