Day in the Life: Gaming the Downtime in Shaintar and Other Savage Worlds Settings

A Savage Worlds Rules Hack by Sean Patrick Fannon

From the first page -

“Day in the Life” sessions allow a lot of different non-combat things to happen in a gameplay style that satisfies the desire to utilize character abilities and gifts while still focusing on deep story development and roleplay. To do a Day in the Life session, just get everyone at the table as usual, and ask them to think about what they want to accomplish on the day or period of time in question...

The Day in the Life rules hack makes resolving all of those between-the-adventures activities gamable and a lot more fun, with very tangible rewards and benefits as well as excellent narrative and roleplay consequences. Every player at the table will be able to choose from the following Activities for their Day in the Life session: 

  • Acquire
  • Assist
  • Carouse
  • Court
  • Craft
  • Explore
  • Gamble
  • Interrogate
  • Investigate
  • Manage
  • Negotiate
  • Patrol
  • Reminisce
  • Research
  • Rest
  • Socialize
  • Train

With rewards like Adventure Cards, Bennies, Information, Contacts, and more, players will enjoy getting to play out Day in the Life sessions as much as regular adventures. GMs will greatly appreciate the added opportunities to leverage Hindrances and instigate new Plot Hooks.

Though designed initially for the Shaintar product line, GMs of any Savage Worlds setting (or, really, any game) will find this system extremely useful for their campaigns.

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.
