Pinnacle Entertainment Group announced plans to develop Holler: An Appalachian Apocalypse as a new setting for Savage Worlds.

Holler: An Appalachian Apocalypse is a folk horror RPG by Tim Earley and Odd Bard Games that potrays on a hellish picture of the Appalachian mountains. The landscape is threatened by a toxic fog known called the Blight, and ravaged by demons, cryptids, haints, and evil fey.

"I was raised in Appalachia and identify greatly with the material," said Shane Hensley, President of PEG. "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."

The setting will focus on the heroes of Holler, which are everyday Appalachia residents such as miners, moonshiners, and bluegrass pickers, as they battle against environment-destroying industrialist barons. There is no release date or projected MSRP for this new setting as of the publication of this article.

Pinnacle Entertainment Group recently released Rifts For Savage Worlds Adventure Boxed Set in August (see "Pinnacle Entertainment Group Will Release 'Rifts for Savage Worlds Adventure Boxed Set' Into Trade").
