A special kind of Pick for the last day of All Hallows’ Eve Week, this time pointing out the entire suite of horror-and-spooky product lines that Pinnacle Entertainment publishes. Any one of these settings would make for a perfect Halloween night of gaming! Also, they’re pretty much all on sale right now for the Halloween celebration!

Of course, everyone knows all about the “Weird West” that is Deadlands.

Of course, there’s also the very interesting variant, tooling around the 30s and 40s – Deadlands Noir.

What most folks don’t know is that Pinnacle goes even further back with horror, as their Weird Wars series was some of Shane’s first forays into mixing the terror of myth and legend with heroes ready to fight whatever comes.

And then there’s Rippers, where the heroes use the powers of the monsters… to fight the monsters!

Heading back into modern times, there’s the strange town of Pine Box, Texas, and the even stranger extracurricular activities of the students of East Texas University.

Finally, there’s the strange terror and odd comedic vibes of the world of the Goon.

Make your Halloween gaming savagely fun, and keep the spirit of the season – terrifying as it is – all year long!

Naturally, it’s All Hallows’ Eve Week here at the SPOD as we run up to Halloween weekend and the impending celebration of Samhain for many. Figured opening up with this extraordinary holiday bundle of horror from the platinum-selling Shadow of the Demon Lord line was a good start. Seriously, over $30.00 of stuff for $9.95 makes this a great opportunity to see why everyone’s been talking about Robert Schwalb’s magnum opus of dark fantasy horror.

Enter a dark horror-fantasy land steeped in the chaos and madness unleashed by the end times, with whole realms overrun by howling herds of beastmen, warped spirits freed from the Underworld, and unspeakable horrors stirred awaken by the Demon Lord’s imminent arrival.

Now, at nearly 70% off, you can get the core book plus six bestselling supplements.

The folks at DriveThruComics (sister site to my usual feed of awesome, DriveThruRPG) would really like you to consider them as a one-stop shop for digital comics from pretty much everyone that isn’t Marvel, DC, or Dark Horse. To that end, they’ve put together a bundle of 49 comics (and a kind donation to the Hero Initiative) – nearly $100.00 of comics – for $20.00.

This is where you stop reading, go buy, and dig in.

Cheers!

Before I get into the specifics of today’s Pick, a couple of important notes. First off, apologies for the page being down over the last couple of days for many of you; there was some of that Magic Internet Stuff happening in the background that occurs when a site host makes huge internal changes and those of us ignoramuses on the user end have no idea what to do. That’s clearly been resolved, but it took a bit. Thanks for your patience.

The other thing, which is much bigger, is the change I am launching next week. Starting on Monday (Halloween), I am inverting how I do things with the Pick of the Day and the Picks of the Week. The Pick of the Day will now appear first on E.N. World, specifically on the ENN News Network. I will then share it here on the Pick of the Day web site, and I will also collect the week’s Picks and share them as a unified roundup article on Fridays.

This will make things a lot better for me overall, friends, so I hope you can support this decision and enjoy the content as always.

Now then, speaking of content, there’s a huge amount of it on sale over at DriveThruRPG and all of the sister sites. As well, the annual Trick-or-Treat Jack-O-Lantern search is going on right now, where you can get some great additional deals, free stuff, and some funny “tricks” as you search all the sites and find them.

It’s the biggest GM’s Day Sale event ever – hundreds of publishers, many thousands of products, all 30% off. One of those publishers, Monte Cook Games, is really going all out.

In celebration of GM’s Day (and just in time for the incredible Worlds of the Cypher System Kickstarter campaign), you can get the Cypher System Rulebook—and dozens of other Monte Cook Games titles—at a great discount!

What will your Cypher System campaign be?

A Cypher System campaign of Victorian horror? High fantasy? Espionage? Galaxy-spanning space opera? With the Cypher System Rulebook, running any of those is as easy as running or playing The Strange or Numenera . Take the Cypher System to the limits of your imagination with this hefty rulebook that extends the system to fantasy, science-fiction, horror, modern-day, and superhero settings—or any setting you can imagine!

The Cypher System Rulebook adapts the Cypher System—the critically acclaimed, award-winning rules set that drives Numenera and The Strange—to an unlimited range of campaigns and genres, giving you the complete rules set (along with dozens of optional and genre-specific rules) and hundreds of character options, creatures, cyphers, and other resources. It’s everything you need to play virtually any game using the Cypher System rules.

If you’re already a fan of Numenera and/or The Strange, you’ll find new descriptors, foci, types, creatures, cyphers, and artifacts you can use in your campaign the minute you crack open the book. Many of the optional genre rules will benefit your campaign as well. There are pages and pages of content you can make use of in your existing game, even if you never take the Cypher System into another genre!

The Cypher System Rulebook gives you 416 pages of character options, equipment, game rules, special coverage of key genres, creatures, NPCs, and cyphers.

  • Complete game rules
  • Genre-specific rules and advice for fantasy games, modern games, science-fiction games, horror, and superheroes
  • Systems for issues such as vehicle combat, crafting, and insight, among others
  • Four new character types, each customizable to the needs of your setting
  • Over 50 descriptors and 70 foci
  • Loads of equipment and hundreds of cyphers and artifacts
  • Nearly 70 creatures and NPCs
  • Great GM advice on adapting the Cypher System to a variety of settings, and on running a fun, engaging, fast-paced, easy-to-GM game sessions

Start a new campaign set in a fantasy land of elves and fae creatures, a science fiction setting spanning the galaxy, or a modern slasher horror game—or add scads of new options to your Numenera or The Strange campaign. The Cypher System Rulebook gives you everything you need to run the game you want to play using the critically acclaimed, award-winning, and just plain fun to play Cypher System!
