Nova Praxis: Savage Worlds Edition [Augmented PDF]

ZIP File

This is a special PDF version of Nova Praxis: Savage Worlds Edition. It is not just a fully bookmarked and linked PDF version of the book. The Augmented PDF has gone through an entirely separate layout process, developed from the ground up to run on widescreen laptop screens and tablets. 

The Augmented PDF also features a built in form-fillable character sheet, and a number of navigational aids that allow you to reference the PDF far faster than using bookmarks or text searches.

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 PDF is 273 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 Game Master's Companion (Fate), and the rules for playing Nova Praxis with the Savage Worlds game system.

And don't forget to pick up the Nova Praxis Action Deck!

so do you not need the savage worlds core book to play this setting?

Let me preface this by saying I don’t [yet] own the Savage edition of this. There’s plenty of cool to be had in the original Fate Core version, but honestly this system feels like a better fit. There’s just a bit too much crunch and not enough Fate feel here for it to jibe well with that system, in my opinion.

I thank Mike for all the work he put into that edition, and presumably this one.

I will definitely be picking it up at some point, because the alternative is home brewing a potentially very time- consuming and almost certainly sub par setting/mechanical extensions on your own.

Let me say that while the original does a great job of capturing flavor of the cyber/post human/ post singularity setting, to me Eclipse Phase does the best with setting (I’ve never used its rules) and for Fate Mindjammer is king (or queen, or whatever)

Any chance for a reverse discount for the standard PDF? I've read through some of the augmented one and can see using it at the table to quickly reference something, but I would prefer reading its standard layout for a first time through.

Great setting by the way. I really like what you've done with creating a "World of Gray" where you can play for any corporation or an outcast without painting any of them as Good or Evil.

I'm a little disappointed that there are so many non-linked "pg. (<?>)" references in the document.

I think there are about 10 of them that somehow got broken when Adobe pushed out the new version of InDesign. We'll be getting those fixed, and an update out, very soon. Thanks!

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.
