High Space Core Rules (v1.2)

Watermarked PDF

Fast, Furious Fun… in the Far Future!

“The final ruleset is here! If you are looking for a game that delivers epic, galaxy-spanning space opera, with rules that keep the action coming at light-speed, then look no further. High Space blends the very best sci-fi tropes with Savage Worlds, giving you freedom to play humans, robots, aliens… even starships!  And the transonic vehicle and space battle rules are simply brilliant.”


Yes, you can still grab High-Space right here and start exploring the Galaxy. But you can also back the uplifted High-Space edition, which packs more of all the things you love: fun starship building rules, tactics and combat, new gear, and exotic alien races!  Check it out here.

“Scout ship Xenobius, you have entered Restricted Space. This is the Tor warship five-thousand kilometres off to your aft quarter. Stand down and prepare to be boarded…”

The THREE core rule books for High Space, the ultimate Space Opera for Savage Worlds, are here at last!

Book 1: Character Analects, lets you create fantastical science fiction heroes and equip them with the latest gadgetry and transonic vehicles. 

Book 2: Fleet Manual, shows you how to build wondrous starships using our unique, quick-and-easy, “character-based” construction system... and then pit them against each other for epic battles across the vast reaches of the cosmos, or play one as your character!

Book 3: The Lantern, thrusts your players into an epic space opera. A rich world setting and story-line that will have the players uncover remarkable secrets. 

High Space, from famed author Patrick Taylor (Hael Core Rules, Blind Threat and more), provides you with everything you need to play epic science fiction, from new rules for Savage Worlds to a galaxy-spanning setting.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
