Savage Characters, Volume 1 - SWADE

Selected Option:

Grab a Character and Get Savage!

The Savage Characters series utilizes the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition game engine to present TWENTY ORIGINAL CHARACTERS.  Each character is defined with a rich background, full body portrait, full stats as a Legendary figure, the complete build path to play them at whatever experience level you choose, and five adventure ideas (one suggested for each rank).  Used together, these friends and foes, PCs and NPCs present entwined histories and related adventures.

In addition to the characters, the book provides original, new Edges, Hindrances, an Arcane Background, Skills, Gear, Monsters, Monstrous Abilities, Soul rules, and Races from the different settings.

The characters are grouped into four Dragonlaird Gaming settings with five characters in each setting.  The settings are original but the characters could be easily used in other games of the haunted west, fantasy, modern horror, or space opera genres.

Dark Ages & Dragon Gods: A beautiful traveling noblewoman hides a secret life as the larcenous Lady of Red Silk.  Out of love, a grizzled mercenary from Moorish Iberia keeps the noblewoman safe  A priest of the Dragon God with a secret carries out the will of the Roman Draconic Church.

Demon Streets & Made Men: A nightmare from another dimension controls one of the Five Families and plots to consume New York City into a soulless Hell. A hideous creature skulks in shadows, influencing minds and enacting the schemes of its master.  A Catholic made man for the Romanos learns of the growing darkness and vows to protect his city from Satan.

Ghost Lands & Sixguns: A mad scientist performs twisted experiments in a hidden lair in the Sierra Mountains.  An American Black Bear is made intelligent by science and takes up a gun and crime.  A heartless thug parlays violence and schemes into rule of the town of Miasma Springs.

Theta Ships & Iron Men: A disgraced captain of the Royal Stellar Navy hunts the creature who stole his flagship from him.  An alien bounty hunter burdened with a rigid moral code travels the Galaxy after criminals.  A spy for the ancient Spironetti Empire seeks to rock the foundations of her own people.

Whether you are a Gamemaster using these characters and adventures to enrich your campaign world or a player looking for a different sort of character, Savage Characters is sure to Fire Up Your Game!

Is this for Deluxe edition or Adventure edition?

Just out of curiosity, why aren't you allowing copy & paste of the errata? It ends up pasting nothing but gibberish. For example, copying the word "Errata" ends up pasting as "Fssbub". It obviously shifts everything by 1 letter, making it impossible to read, but why? The main product fortunately isn't like that.

Where are the Racial Traits that the Half blooded get to choose from? I've been through everything and still haven't found them. Are they in another book (if so which book), or just accidentally left out of this one (if so when will this be addressed)?

Thanks for the comment. While the full racial abilities are not required to run these characters as written, I've added the racial abilities as well as the full "Raised as a..." Edge into our Errata document which I'll be sending to all purchasers this evening.

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.
