Sweet!
 
Here's the first update from our Savage Rifts Kickstarter, as crafted and posted by +Shane Hensley -

Well...THAT Escalated Quickly...

It's the tag line of the T shirt you can get with the Kickstarter, and nothing seemed more appropriate. We knew people loved Rifts®...what we didn't know was how interested the Savage Worlds community would be, nor how interested the Palladium system fans would be in trying out not only different rules, but a different rule paradigm.

Turns out, quite a bit. ;)

So... thanks. Not just for backing our Kickstarter, but for getting the word out.

But especially for all the great feedback in Sean Fannon and Ross Watson's playtests over the last year or more at various conventions--from the incredible Savage-heavy shows in Denver (thanks Rocky Mountain Savages!) to GenCon, Chupacabracon (where we'll be running games in just two weeks, maybe even with live-streaming), and around the Denver area with local groups where they live.

Because of that, dozens of people, if not hundreds, have played the game, tested the various iterations of Mega Damage, M.D.C., and of course all the awesome Iconic Frameworks (OCCs to original Rifts fans). Personally, I've played a Ley-Line Walker, Juicer, and Glitter Boy. I was about to be a Crazy too...wait, no....that's real life.

Thanks also to our buddies John Wick (of record-setting 7th Sea fame), Mike Conn, Jimmy Macias, and the folks who played with us here at Pinnacle central in Chandler, Arizona. Some GREAT stuff came out of that game--like the Burn rules for the Juicer I think most folks will love. :)

Because of our amazing staff and ALL YOU AWESOME PEOPLE, this game has undergone more playtesting than anything we've ever done. Sean and Ross did a fantastic job running the games and incorporating your feedback, and it shows in the work.

We'll show you some samples of that work in the coming days, starting with the Glitter Boy!

Stretch Goals

Now...you're really here for new Stretch Goals, aren't you?

We came up with the rest of the goals but not the amounts since we didn't know what kind of response we were going to get. We're also very conscious about only listing stuff we know we can handle and won't interfere with getting all the print books we're working on done in the time we said we would.

So please give us until early afternoon tomorrow and we'll show you what we've got coming. I will tell you this though...

Woof!

Roar!

Ka-THUNK! Ka-THUNK! Ka-THUNK!

I absolutely loved Rifts and related Palladium games. I'm glad to see this awesome setting get revitalization.

I had a blast working on this.
 
Do you like Fantasy? We've got that. Science Fiction? Try Set Rising. Steampunk? The mysterious fae from Clockwork Dreams has you covered. There are many ways to travel between worlds and we use Telesma (a special token with its own intelligence) to help you in many ways both subtle and overt.

Whether you want to play in a single world or are interested in a universe spanning adventure, our Telesma can move you through time or across the universe to a different world. The Suzerain Continuum is only the first step in exploring a vast and exciting universe.

Loving this. Nothing like waking up to a 4.5 star review!
 
Massively pleased to get another 4.5 star review from +Endzeitgeist Sigurðr !

"Miles M. Kantir, Zach Wellhouse, Alan Bundock, Clyde Clark, Richard Mendenhall, Aaron Rosenberg, George “Loki” Williams, Pastor Allan Hoffmann, Richard Moore and Matt Medeiros have done an impressive job in this huge book. Suzerain endeavors to be basically a campaign-template for high-level gaming and themes – and it succeeds in several interesting regards: The decision to emphasize the narrative component without drifting off into the, pardon my French, competitive bullshitting of FATE, works surprisingly well in the Pathfinder-context. The demigod-rules are sufficiently different from mythic rules to fit a different playstyle and themes, which is a BIG plus in my book – I love mythic rules (provided I can use all those Legendary Games-supplements; I hate vanilla mythic with a fiery passion…)…and I can see myself growing to love these rules as well, perhaps even combining them for some particularly brutal foes.



Theme-wise, Suzerain is basically the planewalker’s toolkit as opposed to mythic’s superhero-flair. Toolkit…that’s what describes this book best. There are crunchier books out there, sure – but the ideas and observations regarding often problematic themes, setting-switching etc. make this a handy tome to have. The crunchy statblocks and adventure/campaign-sketches also illustrate rather well how to utilize these rules….or rather, concepts. The true treasure herein lies in the concepts and yes, this book makes it significantly easier to come up with a justification for the jumping between worlds.

I put mine through the wringer festivals and such. I think the NOLA humidity did them in. Haven't been working for a few months, and as you know there are no replacements forthcoming.

Yeah, bring it. You'll get a ton of amazingly cool pics/vids.

So. The new bio. I've been staring at it too long. Opinions?
________________________________________________________

A French Creole native son of New Orleans, George "Loki" Williams' has worked for local icons such as WWOZ, Tipitinas, House of Blues, and Commanders Palace. Combining these "front line" experiences with his Garden District upbringing allows him bring an extra depth to his tours of the city. His online work in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina (including HumidCity.com and the Rising Tide Conference) has been covered in MetroPolitics EU and other scholarly publications.

George is also the lead freelance designer for Savage Mojo, where he has helmed the company's new Pathfinder RPG product line, including the critically acclaimed Dungeonlands: Palace of The Lich Queen. Co-manager of Planewalker.com since 2004 and first published by Kobold Press in 2012, he has been gleefully freelancing for Jon Brazer Enterprises and other publishers ever since.

He is proud to have been part of teams that have earned the following awards: Silver ENnies in 2005 and 2007 for Planewalker, Bulldog Reporter Award in 2008 for the ”Blog Buddy” campaign for AMACOM Books, Webby Award in 2008 for OSI's Katrina: an UnNatural Disaster, and an ENnie nomination in 2013 for Dark Roads and Golden Hells from Open Design/Kobold Press.

He resides in his native city of New Orleans with his lovely wife Alexis and three insubordinate felines - Eris, Rose and Puck.

Neither, there were Blancs on the boat with Bienville when he got here. Blanc is the Creole line that goes all the way back. The Denegres and Martins came later. The Monroes and Williamses even later than that.

Yay! More deckplans!
 
Here's 2 alternate decks - I only changed the sleeping chambers and observation/galley deck furnishings for the differences (I've yet to do the autumn version). One alternate is for human pirates who are more comfortable with hammocks and require cooked food, so has a stove. The second alternate are for larger races (Giff, maybe?) who can only fit one bed per room and prefer actual beds. Also the captain of the ship has taken over the aft chamber making it a proper captain's quarters. Also more security conscious they place lockable doors for each chamber, instead of leaves, even having a door at the cargo ladder to prevent unauthorized access to the cargo deck.

As a smoker with a 30+ year, two pack a day habit, the vape is my last resort where all other smoking cessation techniques have failed miserably. The guys at Crescent City Vape are indispensible! After I found the starter kit to be insufficient they took the better part of the afternoon working with me to find the exact device and juices that I need to try to put down the cigarettes. Covering everything from how much vapor the device produces to the finer points of priming it properly they patiently and expertly worked with me to make sure I had *exactly* what I needed! Now I have an IPV Mini, and it is making all the difference. For the first time I feel like I really have a good chance of putting down this horrible habit before it kills me. Expert, friendly, and smiling service across the board! Highly advised!

I genuinely hate giving a restaurant a bad review, but sometimes it is well called for. I spent over twenty years working in restaurants in the front of the house, most of the time as head waiter. This means not only that I know good service, but also that I am more inclined than many to turn a blind eye to errors if the server is obviously “in the weeds,” or otherwise having a crappy night. I’ve been there, it sucks. I have to speak out concerning my first visit to Pomodori’s this evening. The food was quite tasty, but the service was nothing short of abysmal. A spontaneous dinner out with some friends became a comedy of errors in extremely short order. Sitting around for fifteen minutes waiting for a drink order is a bit excessive, but I’ve dealt with worse and still left a solid 20% as long as the rest of service went well. Such was not to be the case. One reason that a good waiter repeats your order back to you is in order to ensure its accuracy. This is especially true if the table is asking for changes to the dish, or “mods,” as most places call them. Our table had several mods, all of the simplest kind- add chicken, add prosciutto, etc. Nothing subtracted, no drastic rewrites of menu items. One would think that your average college student could get that, right? No. Well over twenty minutes after placing our order the first entree arrived, accompanied by a pizza that turns out to be for a different table. Lonely it was as it sat, unaccompanied, on the broad and empty expanse of our table of six. Another twelve minutes go by. Then four more entrees arrive. One of them is a salad, not the pasta we ordered. It goes back and our party begins to dig in, sharing what is there. If you’re having trouble keeping up that is now four out of the six entrees that are on the table. Additionally, my Alfredo was suspiciously lacking in the chicken I had requested. Absolutely famished at this point I wrote it off and began to dig in. Another fifteen or so minutes go by and the replacement for the salad, the Gorgonzola pizza we originally ordered, arrives. That still leaves us one down, a pizza that had still not arrived. I really should have called a manager over, but morbid curiosity had gotten the better of me I have to admit. I wanted to see just how far the quality of service would actually sink. You see, among the other annoyances the server only came by to refill our drinks once during our entire two hours there, when one of our party motioned to her after prolonged neglect. The entire visit was filled with this sort of thing. The check had to be redone three different times, and it would have been more if I had not decided that my time was worth more than waiting another twenty minutes while a $2.00 addition of chicken got removed. It was the first time in over a decade I left without tipping. (I tip 20% for average service so you can imagine what this took.) I want to close with a comment, so that it is fresh in your mind after reading this: The food, was wonderful. I really enjoyed the items that hit our table. All compliments to the chef, still it would have been nice if there were more resemblance to the items we ordered, but it was great eating nonetheless. Since I’m the new guy, only been in Cincy a year and a half, I’m still trying out restaurants. I have a feeling that despite the great food it will be a long time before I go to Pomodori’s rather than trying something new. Service like that is something you remember.

Cafe Luna was recently purchased by a new owner and the results are a joy to all of us who live in the neighborhood. The menu has improved and all the pastries are made in house (best croissants I've had since I was in Paris). the quality of the coffee has likewise improved drastically. Luna has gone from a place I would not frequent, even though it was a mere few blocks away, to someplace I spend time in every day. That is the best recommendation I can give. Go check it out!

Discovered this spot while staying around the corner recently. Great ambiance for afternoon cocktails and conversation. Even though I am a non smoker I found the atmosphere to be inviting. They must have some serious ventilation. I wish I could recall the bartender's name. A young, vivacious blonde who provided excellent service. I will be going there for drinks again next time I visit from New Orleans.

Food: Horrible and never, ever prepared properly Service: A great example of "Service with a Sneer" The most sullen staff I have seen in any establishment and the worst food of any Wendy's I've ever been in. This is not a snap judgement, I've now given them over ten opportunities to get an order right and they never have. On one visit my burger was uncooked, I was given the wrong drink (in the wrong size no less), and the fries were burned. Every experience since then has been like that. Another time I ordered a large frosty and nothing else, surmising that they could not mess that up. I was given a small one. When I brought it to the woman's attention she threw it out and made me another small one. When I interrupted her cellphone conversation to ask once more for my large frosty she finally made it, muttering profanity she did not think I could hear the entire time. I honestly cannot understand why this place is still open other than the fact that it is on a main thoroughfare. I think that the company seriously needs to hold this franchisee's toes to the fire because this is not the level of quality or service that their brand is built on.
