The Coolest Doghouse on the Web!
Evil Beagle Games is running ahead of the pack!
Greetings to all and welcome to our new website! Evil Beagle Games has had a busy first half of 2016, with lots more great stuff coming soon. We have a ton of awesome products lined up and our engine is running strong.
First, the big announcement is that Evil Beagle Games has partnered with Pinnacle Entertainment Group and Palladium Books to help bring you Savage Rifts! The amazing Rifts setting now featuring the Savage Worlds ruleset had a fantastic kickstarter that just wrapped up. For Savage Rifts, we have the Tomorrow Legion Player’s Guide, the Game Master’s Handbook, Savage Foes of North America, a GM Screen, and an introductory adventure (Garnet Town Gambit). The kickstarter also opened up some additional adventures and an expanded player’s guide as part of the stretch goals!
In other news, Evil Beagle Games is pleased to say we’re working with Michael Surbrook, a veteran game designer and writer, to bring some of his unique visions to the RPG market. The Grand Melee is the first of these projects, already out for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. We’re working on bringing you the Grand Melee for D&D 5e, Savage Worlds, and Champions Complete! Michael’s got a lot of great material for us, so stay tuned for more Michael Surbrook Presents.
Also, we teamed up with the Sasquatch Game Studio and translated the award-winning fantasy setting Primeval Thule to the Savage Worlds Ruleset. This setting is an intriguing mash-up of Conan and Cthulhu, where barbarian warriors clash with decadent civilization in the shadow of darker threats. Be sure to check Primeval Thule and adventure in the doomed age, a time of great deeds and primordial terror!
We've also got more new stuff for Savage Worlds, including a line of utility products called Savagely Useful! The first of these, a random magical item generator, is available on DrivethruRPG right now.

I am extremely pleased and excited to announce that Ross Watson (Accursed, Warhammer 40K Roleplay, Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, etc.) is now a partner in and the Managing Director of Evil Beagle Games. He’s been a dear friend and colleague for a decade and a half, and now he’s in charge of getting my ducks in a row and making us a real and productive publishing house.
Carinn Seabolt (already a Founder) steps up as our Editor-in-Chief, making sure all said ducks are correct and on target. As well, she’s making sure we stay on the right side of inclusivity and history as a company dedicated to quality and fun for everyone.
I am, of course, a Founder and now the newly-named CVO (Chief Visionary Officer). This is a perfect title for me, since the dream and vision of Evil Beagle Games is my dream and vision, and keeps me in a high-level role to help steer the company. At the same time, it takes me out of the day-to-day management stuff that – let’s be real, here – I am utterly terrible doing.
Ross has been at the head of some of the most important projects in gaming, and he’s also consulted with companies across the entertainment spectrum. He knows his stuff, loves Shaintar, and has some exceptionally cool ideas to add to the mix. We’ve already gotten off to a great start, and the long-awaited Kickstarter materials are now in full-development mode toward release (we’ve got some great announcement coming about those soon). We’re already able to see a future where other great talents in the industry can look at the Beagle as a house for their ideas.
Thanks to everyone for your continued belief in and support of Evil Beagle Games. The next few days, weeks, and months are going to be a very exciting time for us all.
