Things have changed. We have changed.

Earth is lost to us, but even in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy, we grow, evolve, and even prosper. We have witnessed the death of our mother and the birth of a new era.

In what might have been the end, salvation was found in the synthesis of biology and technology. Augmentation, ranging from basic genetic manipulation to Apotheosis, set us on the path of prosperity. And more, these advances reinforced the importance of identity, individuality, and what it means to be human.

The loss of Earth and the resulting Exodus gave us an opportunity to start over with a clean slate. And we seized it.

The need for organization, stability, and a reliable government was clear, but the old ways came to be viewed by the survivors as archaic, clumsy, and too easily corrupted.

It was time for a new way…a Nova Praxis.

Today, social networks allow the will of the people to be measured instantly, accurately, and without the need for representation. The Coalition, guided by the collective voice of its people, has established new homes on worlds lit by new suns. Molecular assembly technology has made it possible for society to provide a quality of life never before imagined, at essentially no cost, to everyone. And we are virtually immortal.

But can this would-be utopia last?

Corruption in the Coalition government fosters decay from within. The Houses, our benefactors and patrons, run shadowy networks of intrigue, espionage, and assassination. Apostates, those who refuse citizenship in the Coalition, condemn those who would trade their privacy for the Coalition’s security. Remnants of Earth’s old governments wage a guerilla war on Coalition forces. Ideological extremists commit acts of terror using the latest horror to spring from a factory or test tube…

And the value of a human soul is weighed and measured in lines of code.

Nova Praxis is a post-singularity sci-fi setting that explores transhumanism and post-scarcity societies against a backdrop of action, adventure, conspiracy, and intrigue.

Nova Praxis is…

…a tabletop role-playing game featuring the Savage Worlds Role-Playing Game System, tailored specifically for Nova Praxis.

…compatible with, but does not require, the Savage Worlds Science Fiction Companion.

…a relatively “hard sci-fi” setting that takes place during the aftermath of a short-lived technological singularity.

…an exploration of the tropes of transhuman sci-fi: mind uploading, resleeving, artificial intelligence, and augmentation.

…an exploration of the societal impacts of a reputation-based post-scarcity economy.

…a game in which players play characters who slip between the cracks of civilization and perform jobs their patrons would rather keep off the books.

...a setting full of conflict. The Houses wage a secret Shadow War against each other, purist and transhuman ideologies clash violently, and apostates rebel against the oppression of the Coalition government.

...home to railguns, powered armor, starships, security drones, bipedal combat frames, swarms of nanomachines, kill-sats, and the horrors of accelerated evolution gone wrong.

The book is 310 gorgeous full color pages, featuring the artwork of Andrea Wallin (now working on Star Wars Episode VII!) and Marius Andrei! It combines all the content from the original Nova Praxis released for the Fate game system, as well as additional content from Machinations: The Nova Praxis GM's Companion (Fate), and the rules for playing Nova Praxis with the Savage Worlds game system.

NP for me, is the best and most playable Transhumansim RPG to date. Doesn't matter if SW (my preferred system) or Strands of FATE.
It's really a shame that Void Star doesn't support it any more.

Is there going to be an update for SWADE or has the design team decided there aren't enough changes?

I just want to second Grattan's question. Is there going to be an update for SWADE, or are the differences so minor that a conversion isn't necessary?

This is one the best products, I have met with! Can I ask if there will be expansion about extraterrestrial beings and psi-force? Because apart from these, this setting quite covers everything, so immersive and philosophical as well (but not to the point that would scare those off who dislike ph.).

Is this a standalone book, or will I need some version of Savage Worlds to go with it?
Customer avatar

What's funny is that I'm waiting on the answer for this question before buying this book (or maybe the augmented edition). I'd actually buy it either way... I'd just like to know.

Still waiting.

Hi Jason,
You will need Savage Worlds Deluxe.

Thank you. Actually, I had already gone to your website and found that information there - I am not sure why it is not stated here, as well! I ended up deciding to get the Fate version instead.

Is there a hard cover copy available for the FATE version of this book? I can't seem to find it here...

Is there an official place to post rules questions? I found nothing on the NP homepage, so I thought I'd ask here...

Am I the only one having a problem printing the character sheet? And why don't you have an up to date character sheet on your website or something? I'm running a game tomorow and it looks like we'll be forced to play rule zero, or another game because of this little slip.

Hi Jonatan,
I haven't heard any complaints about being able to print the character sheet, but you can download a form-fillable, printer friendly, version here:

So if we buy this pdf, will we have to pay an additional charge to get the augmented pdf or is that a free upgrade for buying early?
Customer avatar

We're aiming for an early November release for the print version. The Augmented PDF will follow shortly after. If you have no idea what an "Augmented PDF" is, you can learn more here:

Awesome material! Just read through it and already have mates of mine interested in a campaign. Quick question though, does anyone know when the hardcopy version of this will be released?

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.
