Holler: An Appalachian Apocalypse is a dark fantasy/folk horror version of Appalachia from author Tim Earley.
It is a land of ghostly, shrouded mountains sealed off from the rest of the world, dominated by the schemes of madcap industrialists and their strange inventions, threatened by ecological collapse in the form of a toxic fog known as the Blight, and beset by a harrowing array of demons, cryptids, haints, and roguish fey.
Heroes are everyday folks in Holler: miners, moonshiners, granny women, holy rollers, bluegrass pickers, and roustabouts. Outmanned and outgunned by robber baron industrialists, Holler’s heroes must rely on their wits, ingenuity, kinship bonds, and hardscrabble toughness to win the day!
Today, Pinnacle Entertainment Group is thrilled to announce that Holler is set to be an official Pinnacle setting for Savage Worlds!
“I first saw Holler when we were putting together the JumpStarts for the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition,” said Pinnacle President Shane Hensley.
“The evocative cover and a quick skim through the contents instantly jumped out at me as something new and different. I was raised in Appalachia and identify greatly with the material. What I love about Tim’s take is it highlights the beauty and community of the region, doesn’t shy away from the negatives, and uses magic and folklore to transform it into something exciting and illuminating people all over the world can identify with.
“After running the game on the Rocky Mountain Savage Cruise at the beginning of 2020, I knew I wanted it to be an official Pinnacle setting for Savage Worlds, just as we did with 12 to Midnight’s East Texas University. These worlds not only show off the diversity of what our game system can do, but also offer our fans something incredibly cool and new they haven’t seen before.”
