The Last Parsec and Sci-Fi Companion

Savage Worlds Poster by JamesDenton
Back in August, Pinnacle Entertainment announced a new sci-fi setting for Savage Worlds. The Last Parsec is to be a four book series with a Star Frontiers spirit or feel to it (note- not necessarily a conversion). This will be launching in a big Kickstarter next year, with a lot more information, naturally.

Each of the four books will feature a separate planet... with it's own plot point campaign!

It also sounds like much of this will be coming out at the same time. Which is interesting.

This image is not confirmed to be any official artwork from the game. It is simply a poster created by James Denton that was used at GenCon and Origins in the Pinnacle Entertainment booth. But I wouldn't be surprised and that would be cool.

Also announced with The Last Parsec was the next genre supplement, Savage Worlds Sci-Fi Companion. It sounds like this is to come out before the Last Parsec series.

And Deadlands: Lost Colony is coming down the Pinnacle pipeline, possibly around the above projects, making Savage Worlds a sci-fi focused game in the near future.

Which is a good thing, in my opinion.
