Pinnacle... why do I not love you more?

Hmm...tonight I made one of my infrequent visits to Pinnacle's websites. I was reminded that Pinnacle probably wins, hands down, for free downloadable goodies. (Especially fold-up paper minis.)
I was particularly delighted to find an adventure for the Hell on Earth setting using Savage Worlds. I'm not sure how long it has been up, since I don't get around to Pinnacle very often, but it makes me hopeful that Hell on Earth will get an update like Deadlands did.

....of course, the adventure also shows me that it is possible to emulate probably 90% of the stuff in Hell on Earth using just Savage Worlds and a little common sense. One of the things I love most about Savage Worlds is the ease of customization.

I also hope they do some kind of update for Lost Colony, though I realize I am probably one of like three people who actually liked Lost Colony... but hey, if I want it bad enough, I should apply some DIY skills, right?
Ah, but if I had that kind of motivation, I'd probably be running a campaign right now instead of leafing through gamebook after gamebook like an ADHD kid hopped up on energy drinks.


Seriously, though...Pinnacle, your website is a thing of beauty. Free, ready-to-go adventures (with free paper minis), cut and paste errata, printable burst/blast templates, test drive rules... I have always found them to be an exceedingly customer-friendly company, and I would do well to show 'em a little more love on this blog, methinks.

  1. A link to the website or the full address written out in your post would have been a good start.

    I assume this is the website? http://www.peginc.com/

  2. I figured that anyone interested enough could probably find it with the magic of google.

    You assume correctly...that's Pinnacle's lovely website.
