About Clint Black

20130405_233536.clintblack.slide

Clint Black is Savage Worlds Core Rules Brand Manager for Pinnacle Entertainment Group. Savage Worlds is the Origins award-winning roleplaying game that is one of the most popular systems in the hobby. Clint also won a Silver ENnie at GenCon 2011 for Space 1889: Red Sands. Clint started as a freelance writer with Pinnacle over ten years ago, but his involvement grew significantly with the advent of Savage Worlds. He transitioned from a playtester on the original design team to the creator of one of the first and most popular books for the system (supervillain setting Necessary Evil, now in its third printing) to one of the designers and ultimately brand manager of the core rules. Along the way, he worked on multiple Savage Worlds projects, including the Horror, Fantasy, and Super Powers Companions, Weird War 2, Space 1889, and of course the landmark Pinnacle setting, Deadlands.  Additionally, Clint serves as the face of Pinnacle on their forums, acting as the Official Rules Answer Man and administrator for years. He counts this opportunity to hang out and chat with fans online as one of the perks of the job.

He is married to multiple award-winning RPG editor Jodi Black and is the father of two awesome gamer daughters. In 2012, Clint Black won an Gold ENnie Award for Savage Worlds Deluxe.

MACE 2019 Feature Guests: Teller & John Goff from PEG

MACE 2019 is proud to announce another gaming guests and game masters from Pinnacle Entertainment Group – the truly mysterious Teller and John Goff!  Their games will be up on OGRe soon..

John Goff

John’s been playing RPGs for over three decades. In spite of publishing dozens of works for various gaming systems, his first solo project, the dime novel Night Train for Pinnacle Entertainment’s Deadlands steampunk/western/horror RPG—also known among players as the “PC Death Train”—remains to this day probably his best-known work.

Over the years, he’s served as the line developer for the Deadlands and Conspiracy X roleplaying games, as well as the Showdown miniatures game. He’s written extensively for Pinnacle Entertainment, as well as Steve Jackson Games, White Wolf, FASA, and several other game companies. His first full-length novel, Deluge, was a finalist for the 2010 Origins Award for Best Game

Related Book. His RPG setting, Deadlands Noir, won the 2014 Silver Ennie for Best Setting.  In addition to his work in gaming, John has been an interrogator for the US Army, a firearms instructor, a bodyguard, and is currently a licensed private investigator.

John will be running the following games:

Deadlands: Dark Ages

The year is 863, but the past is not our own. The island of Britain is beset by bandits, warlords, and Danes, but there are far worse things hiding in the shadows of the deep, dark woods and ancient ruins. Take up the mantle of an ancient mystic, a cunning alchemist, or a Peacemaker-wielding paladin as you find yourself facing an evil created from the mists of legend. Deadlands Dark Ages uses Savage Worlds rules (5 players, no experience necessary, characters provided.)

Deadlands: Lost Colony Reloaded

It’s 2097, but the future is not our own. The Interspace Tunnel has collapsed, trapping hundreds of thousands of human colonists on the frontier world of Banshee. Hostile aliens, strange creatures, and things that go bump in the night all threaten the settlers as they try to survive in a world cut off from home. Join the fight as a steely-eyed gunslinger, a nanite-wielding breaker, a battle-hardened syker, or a mighty anouk warrior. Lost Colony Reloaded is set in Pinnacle Entertainment’s popular Deadlands universe and uses the Savage Worlds rules (5 players, no experience necessary, characters provided).

Teller

The mysterious Teller’s background is unknown, but sources say he’s played RPGs since the late 1970s. He has written a plethora of products for Pinnacle since 1997, including major setting books,  modules, sourcebooks, and convention adventures. As the Brand Manager for both the Hell on Earth and Weird Wars lines, he is able to indulge his love of all things post-apocalyptic and military history-related.

Teller will be running the following games:

A Blast from the Past (Weird Wars Now)

War…war never changes, especially in a place like Afghanistan, where only the technology distinguishes the combatants from one century to the next. Now you and your platoon mates are about to embark on a tour of duty at a remote outpost the likes of which you’ve never dreamed of before– maybe we should call them nightmares.

Something’s Fishy (Weird War Two)

It’s the fall of 1942, and the Battle of the Atlantic is taking a deadly toll of Allied shipping. The British High Command is desperate for some way to stop the U-boats from reaping their deadly harvest before England is strangled by the grey wolves of the sea. Several commando teams who were infiltrated into France to find and destroy hidden U-Boat pens have gone missing, and now it’s your turn to try and stop this menace to the war effort. Good luck.

MACE West 2018: Clint Black & Flash Gordon RPG!

Clint Black will be running the new Savage Worlds Flash Gordon at MACE West 2018.

“He’ll save every one of us!”

On the rogue planet of Mongo, a brutal and sadistic tyrant named Ming the Merciless rules from his royal palace at the heart of Mingo City.

Secretly defying the emperor’s reign of terror are the Freemen, revolutionaries banded together from a number of kingdoms around the globe. From the winged hawkmen of Sky City to the ice giants of Naquk, from the water-breathing Coralians to the tree-dwelling Arborians, and from the nomadic lion men to the dwarfs of the Magnetic Mountains, many who have suffered under the drogiron fist of emperor Ming have united under their own standard to see that the despot is deposed and freedom for all becomes the law of the land.

Inspiring this growing rebellion are three aliens from Earth: Dr. Hans Zarkov, Dale Arden, and Flash Gordon, the man whose face emboldens all who wish to live on a world free of Ming!

The Flash Gordon Roleplaying Game core rulebook contains detailed rules for hero creation, new races, Edges and Hindrances, gear, rocket ships, unique Setting Rules, gazetteer of the fantastic world of Mongo, a Plot Point campaign, Savage Tales, and a host of heroes, villains, and horrific beasts for the Game Master’s eyes only!

Do you have what it takes to join the Freemen, defy the rule of Ming the Merciless, and become the savior of the universe?
