Savage Worlds Science Fiction Companion

Savage Worlds Science Fiction Companion


(This book is for the Savage World's Explorer Edition, not the newer Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. It's largely compatible, but a new edition of the Science Fiction Companion will appear later in 2021.)

There are places far beyond the familiar bounds of Earth. Some lie twinkling in the distant starfields, waiting to be discovered by intrepid explorers or conquered by legions of space marines. Others are just around the corner in time, a near future where hovertanks race across blasted battlefields, cyberware replaces organic limbs, and robots serve humanity—or attempt to annihilate it.

The Savage Worlds Science Fiction Companion contains new races, Edges and Hindrances, Setting Rules, gear, cyberware, and numerous strange creatures from across the galaxy. It also includes detailed but simple rules for players and Game Masters to create their own robots, power armor, vehicles, starships, walkers and more to travel to the stars…and beyond!

The Science Fiction Companion requires the Savage Worlds core rules to play.

is this a companion for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition? Or is this for the older rule book?

This is for the Explorer's Edition, not the newest "Adventure Edition." I'll edit the product description to make that more clear. Thanks!

I was looking for a system to use to run a table top mecha battle ( with hex terrain and such) with players making / customizing their own mechs. wanted something different than battletech type things (which is much to "crunchy" and takes hours for just a handful of mechs). did not know how much of this content would be good for that purpose.

In case you still need an answer... There is a section for building power armor & mechs. And Savage Worlds would do exactly what you need it to. Easy to learn rules & fast paced, satisfying combat.
You would also need the core Savage Worlds book. Which you can get here:

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.
