Re: Stealth Modifiers are kinda funny...

So, by RAW, creatures and players with Low Light vision or some other ability to notice stealthers in the dark is at the same disadvantage as a normal human vs darkness for noticing stealth? I didn't realize that. I also think its kind of strange that characters with the same abilities can't see nor...

Re: List of only core Novice Rank edges?

It should be fairly simple to do yourself.... Open up word or google docs, go to the edges section (or that summary), hit Ctrl + F, type novice and record everything that shows a highlighted word.

It shouldn't take long to get your guys a list of things they can take.

Re: Savage Worlds Web Tools Update

In addition to not giving extra skill points, when you take elder and it drops your str/vigor by a die, it confuses the calculator by refunding your attribute point. For example if I had d8 vigor and 5/5 points spent on the bottom, Elder would drop that d8 to d6 correctly, but it would refund 1 attr...

Re: New AB: Overdrive

Sorry, it was late and I was tired when I threw that post up. I removed the bit about 0 pp automatically giving them a fatigue. It was confusing and especially unecessary because the way PP works covers it automatically anyhow. I added a note explaining that golems are constructs and so have the dep...

New AB: Overdrive

I'm working on a custom fantasy setting, and I am looking for feedback on my new AB. Every Race can use Miracles, but with the exception of Humans, each race has a selection of AB's available to them. Dwarves, for example, aren't innately magical, so they can only use Alchemy because they're working...

Re: Born a Hero and Powers

Born a Hero (SWD p 94) During character creation, heroes may ignore the Rank qualifications for Edges. They must still have any other requirements as usual. The usual rules for Rank requirements apply after the character is created. The rule states that they may ignore the Rank for "Edges.&quo...

Born a Hero and Powers

The core Born a Hero setting rule (at creation, a character can ignore rank qualification for edges) doesn't allow characters to take powers above novice at creation. Is there a good reason for this? Are Seasoned/Veteran powers too powerful for a novice level character?

Re: Savage Worlds Web Tools Update

How do you select edges which don't recognize requirements? (Such as familiar)

Re: Collected: Clint's insights & options (update:11/27/10)

That's strange...I went through basically every link and they all worked for me. Try again and see if they work for you now? I literally went through them (to read) the last two days and I believe every link worked. And it'd be great if there were more Clint WoW's (Words of Wisdom) around to be read...

Declaring Action (Again)

I was wondering, where exactly in the book does it describe declaring action? I have checked out chapters 3 and 4 and didn't find what I was looking for. I don't know how I missed it. So, when declaring action the player (or gm) describes in detail his entire turn before any moving, rolling or actio...

Declaring Action for Groups

What is the process for declaring action for groups? If you had a group of 6 extras and three are shooting and 3 are fighting, do you declare each individual one at a time? Or would you say these 3 will move to and attack your characters and then these 3 will move to cover and shoot your characters ...

Re: Savage Worlds Web Tools Update

Elder doesn't give you extra skill points.
You can't take Familiar, and I assume other similar edges, because it requires a knowledge but it doesn't recognize that you have it.

I don't think that particular document exists any more. Just out of curiosity, I perused the promising links and a couple less promising ones, but I did not find the conversion you mentioned.

Re: LF Fantasy Adventures / Question about Ranks

Yes, I knew about that. Thank you :-). I was reading from an older Adventure that I assume was designed with a previous edition. The dagger, for example, was listed as damage Str+1 instead of Str+d4. The Katana is currently listed as Str+d6+2. I assume in that older adventure the Katana would have h...

Re: LF Fantasy Adventures / Question about Ranks

Thank you for the replies. I'm still interested if anyone else has some goodies to share with me! I did have one question though...

I assume some of these adventures are relatively old, as I saw some gear with dmg like Str+1 or Str+2. How does that translate to SWD? Str+D4?

Interesting story I have an idea for my own adventure, so in that case I'd also be open to finding adventures which span a session or two as well. --- What...
