To celebrate another wonderful game system, Savage Worlds, we’ve gotten together with the fine folks at Pinnacle Entertainment Group to give away a few Savage Worlds books.  Since the PEG folks graciously provided the Savage Worlds Explorer’s Edition and the Deadlands Player’s Guide, I’ll be happy to ship them off to one lucky winner anywhere I can via the USPS.

Savage Worlds is a Fast! Furious! and Fun! rules system for any genre of roleplaying game. Create your own setting, convert an existing one, or pick up one of our amazing worlds like Deadlands, Slipstream, or Weird War II.

The rules give players plenty of depth to create their characters and keep bookkeeping to a minimum for the game master.

If you’re looking for a game that’s fast and easy to set up, run, and play, Savage Worlds is for you!

This is a full-color Explorer’s Edition-sized book (6.5″x9″). This is a copy of the third printing. 160 pages.

The Tombstone Epitaph has always been filled with lurid tales of daring desperadoes and deadly drifters, but lately the West’s most-read tabloid claims there’s something more sinister stalking the fronteir’s lonely plains: monsters! Fortunately, where there are monsters, there are heroes. Squinte-eyed gunfighters, card-chucking hexsligners, savage braves, and righteous padres have all answered the call. And if they fight hard enough, they might just discover the identity of the mysterious Reckoners some say are behind it all.

The Player’s Guide is the core rules book for player of Deadlands Reloaded. It includes new rules for shootouts at high noon, new Edges, Hindrances, and powers, and everything thing a cowpoke needs to begin his journey into the Weird West.

NOTE: This is for the print copy only, a PDF will not be won in this contest.

So how do you qualify to win these two books?  Easily done!  Go to Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s website and tell us what year PEG started out and what they first published.  (Hint – both answers are right next to each other and a cut/paste is fine).  Once you’ve got this info, email it to us at savageworlds AT trollitc D0T com.  Be sure to use a valid email address as that’s how I’ll be contacting the winner.

Since I’m also celebrating my survival of (not really all that) life threatening surgery, I’m also going to put in one of my own, unopened Savage Worlds official Oversized Action Deck!  That’s a lot of capital letters but also a neat extra prize.

Rules:

This contest will start at approximately 9am on Friday, August 27th and will end at 11:59pm EST on Friday, September 3rd.

  • This contest is open to anyone I can ship to via the United States Postal Service.  You are responsible for verifying the books and cards can be shipped to your address.
  • The winner will be chosen by either a random number generator at random.org or a rhesus monkey dressed as a zombie hurling D&D 4e miniatures at a chart of entrants – whichever is easier for me to arrange.
  • All decisions are final, even decisions arrived on by a monkey.
  • Folks who write for TC or work at PEG shouldn’t enter.  That’s just not fair.

That’s all there is to it!  Good luck and get to entering!

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
