State of the Company

-April 18th, 2018

Even though Ed and I (Preston) watch the Pinnacle forums regularly, I realize we post here on our own site only once in a blue moon. I figure we owe you an update on what we’ve been up to. For starters, the 12 to Midnight writers have continued writing for Savage Worlds titles over the last few years.

Also, the first weekend in May several of us will be at ChupacabraCon (again) this year.

So… we’ve kept busy. But you’re probably wondering about more ETU stuff, right? A year ago we announced we were working on a new ETU book we’re calling Study Abroad for now. This book showcases four different countries with student exchange programs where ETU students can spend a semester researching ancient libraries, exploring esoteric museums, and encountering new ghosts, demons, and creatures from folklore. The book is written, we’ve hit our target word count, and I’m proofing it. The bad news is that with my work/family schedule I’ve only been putting in a few hours a week, which just isn’t enough. Recently I’ve made a stronger effort to dedicate more time and I’m 50% of the way through the book. I thought I’d be done by the end of March and here we are, so at this point I don’t want to predict when I’ll be really, really done.

Once the book is in Pinnacle’s hands, it’ll join the production queue. As you know, Pinnacle always has cool projects lined up so I can’t predict when Study Abroad will be released. I do know it’s up to me to get it into the queue though.

If you have any questions just post in the Pinnacle Forums.

Bundle of Holding

-April 27th, 2017

We’re pretty sure if you’re a regular to this website then you probably already own East Texas University. Maybe you have some friends who haven’t gotten in on our RPG of modern, collegiate horror set in Pinebox, Texas. Do your friends a favor and tell them about the Bundle of Holding running now through May 15.

You’ll never find a better deal than this. Get PDFs of East Texas University,  the Savage Worlds rulebook, and several other goodies for only $10. Normally they would run you $43.

What’s more, for less than $22 you can tack on Degrees of Horror, Class Ring, a set of ETU maps, and more. These other PDFs alone would run you another $66.

Best of all, 10% of the profits from these sales go to charity. Click the link and check it out for yourself, then share this with your friends before the deal runs out on May 15.

ETU Horror for the Holidays cover

With semester exams looming, what will your ETU students do over the holiday break? We have the answer, with a brand new ETU adventure. Horror for the Holidays is inspired by the true story of the last man to be lynched in Texas, a bank robber who disguised himself as Santa Claus during the robbery. This adventure by Owen Lean is ideally suited for Freshman or Sophomore ranks but the action can be easily ramped up for higher levels. They’d better watch out and better not cry, or your students will be wishing for a bit less of this Christmas spirit.
