FIGHT KLUB FRIDAY - Cards and News!!!! Really...

Finally, there is actual news about Decipher's Fight Klub. Warren Holland, the CEO of Decipher has released information about the first two sets of Fight Klub.

First of all, the characters. There are 6 characters in each set of Fight Klub and the first 2 sets of Fight Klub are being released at the same time.


* Rambo from "First Blood," "First Blood, Part II" and "Rambo III"
* Ash Williams from "Army of Darkness"
* Chev Chelios from "Crank"
* Michael Emerson from "The Lost Boys"
* Major Scott McCoy (Chuck Norris) from "The Delta Force"
* Tank Girl from "Tank Girl"


* Hannibal Lecter from "Silence of the Lambs"
* Jason Voorhees from "Friday the 13th"
* The Jigsaw Killer from "Saw II"
* Captain Spaulding from "The Devil's Rejects"
* Mr. Blonde from "Reservoir Dogs"
* Sil from "Species"

Two cards featuring the T-1000 from "Terminator 2" are featured in the bonus pack (called a "Black Beauty") for "Two." The Terminator, Sarah Connor, and the T-1000 character cards will be in future sets.

But Fight Klub is more than just the characters. They also have Allies, Gear, Conditions and a host of other modifiers and cards that go into your deck.

In about a month, the new Fight Klub website launches. As Warren Holland said in his email, "The term web "site" is a bit of a misnomer since it's really a comprehensive web application. It's designed to rival social interaction sites on the internet but it's created just for you: Fight Klub members. The website includes forums, a powerful player locator, video theater (where players can post videos and links to movie trailers and more), individual player and gang blogs (yes... you can write your own articles and post your own content about Fight Klub), local Fight Klubs, on-site message and communication tools, card presenter, voting, store, and more."

Warren Holland also said, "We will be going to press in about a week or two, so we plan to ship Fight Klub around the end of the year or the first part of 2009. Our initial print run is relatively small by our standards, but we can reprint under player control with a new production model. The store will indicate when a product is "sold out." Players will then have an opportunity to pre-order the reprint." Any time enough players want to order a set it will be reprinted.

Future sets of Fight Klub will have characters from Platoon, Fargo, Cyborg, Gremlins, Jeepers Creepers II, Killer Klowns From Outer Space, The Thing with Two Heads, Ghoulies II, and the Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai. Decipher has Troy, Goodfellas, The Exorcist, Natural Born Killers, Lethal Weapon, Double Impact, Blue Velvet, and Rocky licensed. The players will have the opportunity to vote on the characters they want to see in Fight Klub.

Decipher is really letting the players have a big say in this game, so don't miss the boat. Stay tuned to Savage Tales for all your Fight Klub news.

Tannhäuser Tuesday - Good News, Bad News

Savage Tales Presents


a tale of thrills and chills in The U-CHRONIC Universe


Fantasy Flight Games has finally got some new Tannhäuser stuff up on their site. The site is also undergoing a transformation. This is good news.

Act 2 - BAD NEWS - This is tempered by the fact that it has taken a year to translate a couple of thin booklets... This stuff is still not actually for sale!!!

Act 3 - GOOD NEWS - Take On You is releasing 2 new Tannhauser items this year! Those in the non-English make take this news otherwise.

DAEDALUS is scaled back a bit from the original plan. There is no minotaur figure included. It will be released later.

Then there is FIELD OPS. Think of this as "Battleground" meets Tannhauser.

Act 4 - BAD NEWS - We won't get Daedalus or Field Ops for at least a year...

And here is yet another item we can't get...

How hard would it be to offer those for sale? No translation needed, just sell them...

Only the future will tell if GOOD NEWS or BAD NEWS will come to Savage Tales... Stay tuned...
