Lost Colony Next Week?

#1 Postby beholdsa » Wed May 09, 2012 10:11 am

So, think we'll get the "skinny" on the new setting next week and it will turn out to be Deadlands: Lost Colony? I mean, "something old, something new" after all.

There was a hint someplace saying a very young Elvis Presley could be there.

Looks about 12, putting the year at 1947. Weird Cold War? Roswell Blues?

Skinny could also refer to Starship Troopers (the book)

Though it's possible, I can't imagine Lost Colony comming out before HoE.

Given the thread Cutter started musing about Lost Colony, I don't see it coming out before 2020.

Don't get me wrong, I love me some Banshee and would be giddy to see the Way Out West show up. I just do not expect it.

The Pinnacle Facebook posts have confirmed that the upcoming Kickstarter is neither Hell on Earth (which is due this summer) nor Lost Colony (for which plans are in the works).

It's also neither Weird Wars Rome, Weird War One, nor is it a companion.

Lost Colony needs to come out in time for Avatar 2. Then they can get some synergy sales...

If it's something that's been announced in the past and the "young Elvis" clue isn't a red herring, it could be Dragon Kings (King Arthur comes back sometime in the future and trades his horse for a Harley!) if it's set in the 50s.

At this point though, I'm inclined to think it's something completely new, thus any speculation is pointless (but certainly amusing to the Pinnacle staffers).

Yeah, I'm thinking it's a wild guess based on stuff we know Pinnacle is capable of.

So everyone knows, it's not a clue unless it's on the Pinnacle Facebook account and noted as a clue by Shane.

My Elvis comment was a joke, as a few of you picked up on.
