Pinnacle Entertainment Group Announces Rippers Kickstarter for Savage Worlds
News from Pinnacle Entertainment Group
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chandler, AZ October 15, 2015 – Pinnacle Entertainment Group, award-winning makers of Savage Worlds, Deadlands, and many other games, announced a two-week-long Kickstarter for their Victorian-era monster hunter setting, Rippers Resurrected. The Kickstarter is over 1000% funded and ends in one week.
Pinnacle first released Rippers in 2005, a setting book for the relatively new Savage Worlds game system. A Ripper character uses everything at their disposal to fight the creatures of darkness like vampires, werewolves, and other horrors that prey upon humanity. Some invest in the latest technology—incredible devices of iron and steel powered either by steam or, more recently, by electricity. Others practice ancient magic or perform holy miracles. A rare few bravely (or foolishly) wield arcane biotechnology “ripped” from the very creatures they hunt.
The Kickstarter for Rippers Resurrected includes PDF and print options for a Player’s Guide, Game Master’s Handbook, Game Master’s Screen with Lord of the Underworld adventure, and three map sets. Also available are specialty dice, Bennies (poker chips), and a Double Action deck of playing cards. Backers also have the opportunity to bundle Rippers with the entire Savage Tales of Horror line from Pinnacle, featuring adventures in a variety of horror genres from fantasy to science fiction.
Supporters recently unlocked a stretch goal giving all backers the complete Lost Library of Rippers. This includes the original Rippers Plot Point Campaign and the full length adventures Death on Dartmoor, The Night of Thoth, The Templar Legacy, and the long-lost Third Hand, Laughter of Death and The Black Ankh! It also includes a simple conversion sheet for those few mechanical differences since the original release.
The last stretch goal presents a new book for the Rippers line: Frightful Expeditions. If unlocked, this book will present Savage Tales around the world of Rippers featuring all seven continents.
