Re: Savage Worlds Web Tools Update

Really nice!

I am using explorer (I know - work machine) - I am not getting anything when I hit the PDF button. But I made a simple 1/2-orc warrior and it turned out nice!

(Now I need you to put in all the Hellfrost material :P)

Re: New to SW, and thinking of running a new game, a few questions?

On longevity: At 100 sessions, you are talking 200-250xp characters at the end. We generally run our campaigns up to about 100xp and then sometimes come back to the characters (we rotate GMs). Anytime I build a new PC I routinely run my idea up to 300-400xp and I am still "wanting more" fr...

Re: FC vs Core

If you're curious which FC you have, look at the copyright page. If the copyright is "2009" then it's a first printing; if it's "2009, 2012" then it's a second printing. If you have original printed FC, there is a notable difference in the Adept Edge. The original FC and Hardbac...

Re: Con on the Cob 2016

I had the pleasure of playing in a bunch of games as well. I was able to exercise my bureaucracy and planning skills in amerigoV's Woes of Wudusmoca trilogy, which saw more party angst over the name of the town than the damn dragon mini that kept coming back. (All hail King Oh-Hey!!!) For those int...

Re: Anyone ever had luck with the chase rules?

I will admit, the few chases we've run, I think a combination of me screwing the rules up, combined with the oddness of the distance abstraction, and just crappy card pulls, have doomed most of our attempts. We'll see, I have an optional chase in a group this Saturday, and I have prepared everythin...

Re: Con on the Cob 2016

I am running 3 loosely linked games - seats available! The Woes of Wudusmoca (Hellfrost) - 3 parts. While the PCs are in the town of Wudusmoca, an itinerant cleric of the Norns is ritually murdered during Festival of Ragnar! All know that the town will be cursed unless it overcomes three trials: on...

[quote="Zadmar"

However Kristian Serrano has created a rather extensive Savage Worlds Eberron Conversion Companion which might be of more direct use to you.[/quote]

Kristian also blogs about it as well (and he is on Google+ as well)

Re: [Melior Via] The Thin Blue Line - A Detroit Police Story

I finally cashed in my hardback print chit from the Kickstarter - loved the dead tree version. Great layout.

Re: Fantasy Questions

TAG's Hellfrost is the Fantasy Companion put in action (not surprising given the overlap in authors. That said, we have run D&D campaign settings (Eberron, Ptolus, Greyhawk) using just the Core plus FC. The races, race generator, and some of the powers are now in the Deluxe, and someone made a g...

Re: [50 Fathons] Edge of the world

This is may be a stupid question, but what happens when a ship sails off the map edge? do they appear on the opposite edge of the map? They end up in Hellfrost (as a Hellfrostinian, I noticed all the races are in Hellfrost as well - ergo, they are linked) I'm not that familiar with the setting, but...

There is a Savage Greyhawk out there - you might try to find that and see if works for you.

Re: So when does NPC get to be Wild Card?

She may or many not be a WC - but some of the resources she has may be (perhaps she recruited a professional killer along the way). Also, that last encounter may not be a fight. It feels like it should be an emotional conflict. Something like she captures someone important to the PCs - gives them a ...

If you are going to give extra armor, you have to account for added bulkiness.

Re: Shaken Rule Change

I hope in future editions the original Shaken remains at least as a setting rule; not only does it assist the non-damaging powers, but adds value to Combat Reflexes. For the normal flow of combat, I really like the new rule. As GM, one less headache. When you have a ton of opponents on the table, i...

1) In their early exploration, they came upon a car. I am not sure if its in the adventure with basically no gas, but I allowed them to have it with a small amount of gas. It allowed me to have a couple of classic moments. One is the "suddenly you see someone in the road!". If they roll p...
