Doomtown Tombstone Worlds Event

Aug 20 2019

Howdy pardners!

As the summer convention season wraps up, it’s time to focus on the big shindig this year for Doomtown, the featured Destination Event in the town too tough to die: Tombstone, Arizona!

October 26th is the 138th anniversary of the legendary street fight between the Earps and the Cowboys, and to coincide with that event, Doomtown players will descend on Tombstone to badge a new Marshal champion!

This year, the focus is on both of the current ongoing stories that will come to a conclusion as a result of player choices in this event. One can be found in the Gomorra Dispatch detailing the story thus far told through the eyes of Wendy and Lucy as they came over to Tombstone from Gomorra in October 1881. The other is from the perspective of a posse in May 1882, on track to hunt down the Fourth Ring once and for all. This story can be seen live through Deadlands sessions hosted by the Saving Throw WildCards crew that occurred at Twilight Protocol Parts I & II this year at GenghisCon  and ChupacabraCon

In Tombstone, between October 23rd and 28th, we present, Act III: The Twilight Legion, as the WildCards once again will be present to tell the final tale of this series!

Players will make choices regarding characters involved in the Showdown at the Clanton Ranch. Meanwhile, the new Marshal impacts the Twilight Protocol story itself based on whether their deck represents the side of the heroes or the Reckoners. If our new Marshal is playing Fearmongers, a Servitor, or an abundance of Abominations, it will have a terrifying impact in Tombstone for the Deadlands universe!

For more information, as well as several links to help make your trip to Tombstone a reality, visit the Tombstone Worlds Event Schedule page today!

Licensee Spotlight: Crown & Dragon

Aug 13 2019

For those of you who like flintlocks with your fantasy, licensee Arion Games is currently Kickstarting the Crown & Dragon Roleplaying Game for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition based on the novel, For the Crown and the Dragon by author Stephen Hunt.

“The year is 1797 and regiments of soldiers march and fight with muskets and bayonets as well as culverins and cavalry.  Arcane magic is wielded by Weirdsmen and Mummers, enchanted forest known as the Tumble cloaks much of the land and strange creatures pose a threat to the great warships and merchantmen that ply the seas.”

The Crown & Dragon Roleplaying Game will allow you to run a campaign set in the Triple Realm with the characters enlisted into a Regiment of “Dragon-Browns,” those cutthroats, murderers, thieves, and killers too base even for the regular regiments. These ne’er-do-wells may be rough around the edges, but they are effective (and expendable) and can be used for all of those dangerous but critical missions and assignments that could not be trusted to regular troops or mercenaries:

The rules section within contains:

  • New Edges and Hindrances
  • New Skills
  • Setting-Specific Rules
  • Steam Powered Vehicles
  • New Arcane Backgrounds and Spells
  • New Creatures
  • Information on running a Dragon-Brown campaign

Unsheathe your saber, load up that flintlock, and pledge your support for the Crown & Dragon RPG on Kickstarter today!
