Make Way for Issue #2 of Savage Worlds Explorer

SW_Explorer_02_Cover_900It seems like only yesterday that the premiere issue of Savage Worlds Explorer was released at the Origins Game Fair. Now, with Gen Con 50 just a few short weeks away, it’s time to make room on your shelf for Issue #2. And boy do we have a jam-packed second issue in store for you all!

This issue features adventures for Deadlands (“Shootout at the Circle-R Corral”) and Deadlands Noir (“His Brother’s Keeper”) both penned by John Goff, an episode of an ongoing serial for The Last Parsec (“Savage Tales of the Red Band”) by Matthew Cutter, and a mission for Weird War One (“Twilight of the New Dawn”) crafted by Teller. Plus there’s an exclusive sneak peek of the new Lion Man playable race from the upcoming Flash Gordon™ Roleplaying Game by Scott A. Woodard!

Click here for more information and to order order Volume 1, Issue 2 of Savage Worlds Explorer!

The Savage Worlds Explorer requires a copy of the Savage Worlds core rules and may also require the core books for each setting. Add a few dice, a deck or two of playing cards, a few eager explorers, and let the fun begin!


Doomtown Update: Bigger and Better (Just Not Yet)

Ace_in_the_Hole_-_JonathanMoore_1_There are several factors involved in the planning and launching of a successful Kickstarter. Having been on that rollercoaster more than a few times already, we speak from experience.

There may be issues regarding shipping, timing concerns, or sometimes little unforeseen things you hadn’t even considered that pop up right when you’re actually putting the campaign together (“…wait, what if we…? Oh, now THAT would be awesome!”).

One of the issues we’re working on right now involves some brand new possibilities with our shipping partners, and thus we need a little more time to look into things and consider a few options. We’ve got players all over the world, and we want to make sure they can all enjoy the many awesome things we have in store.

We also recently found out our friends over at CoolMiniOrNot are launching their new Song of Ice and Fire miniatures game right in the middle of our proposed project. Winter is coming, and we certainly don’t want to risk getting frostbite! 😉

Finally, we’re really excited about another new idea that came up while we were addressing all this other stuff and we need a little more time to develop it. We think our long-time Doomtown players will definitely appreciate it if we can pull it all together.

We’ll post more here when we can and as always, thanks for your continued support, amigas y amigos!
