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.

She will be running Shadow of the Demon Lord by Schwalb Entertainment, LLC.

Shadow of the Demon Lord – The End Is Just the Beginning

Friday 8 pm – midnight & Saturday 2 pm – 6pm

Sometimes the world needs heroes. But in the desperation of these last days, the world will take all those it can get: heroes, blackguards, madmen, and whoever else is willing to stand against the coming darkness. Will you fight the demons or will you burn it all down and dance among the ashes? Who will you become when the world dies? Shadow of the Demon Lord opens a door to an imaginary world held in the grip of a cosmic destroyer. Enter a 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. A complete tabletop roleplaying game in one book, Shadow of the Demon Lord provides everything you need to create and play characters, form groups in pursuit of adventure, and tell exciting stories with your friends. As well, the book gives Game Masters all the tools they need to create adventures, over one hundred foul creatures, a detailed region of the campaign world, and extensive advice to help run the game. As the Demon Lord s shadow creeps across the world, it creates the chance for heroes to seize their destinies and villains to accomplish their despicable goals. As you play the game, you and your friends tell stories about thwarting the plots of twisted cultists, hunting down and destroying bizarre demons, exploring lost lands, investigating weird mysteries, and so much more.
