The world as you knew it ended. Perhaps the enemies of America detonated EMPs high over the country. Maybe a third world war erupted and nuclear missiles struck massive blows against an unprepared populace. Perhaps a force from the stars arrived and claimed Earth as its own, and took strong measures to remove humanity from the equation. It might even have been a virus, one that saw the dead rise to consume the living. Whatever the cause, the result was the same.

Society fell.

The infrastructure that kept the populace healthy, clean, hydrated, and fed, is obliterated. There’s no law enforcement. There are no firefighters. Hospitals and medical clinics are gone. The old, the sick, and the disabled, are on borrowed time. Medicines that kept them alive are dwindling, and the seconds toward their last heartbeat are ticking away.

The world is either/or. Either you find a way to make it, or you die.

Welcome to the Apocalypse Campaign Guide for Savage Worlds. Within this volume, you’re going to find a wealth of information, including:

  • Advice on creating characters for an apocalypse setting
  • Rules for Genetic Mutations and Cybernetics
  • How to craft your own gear and items
  • Complete rules and charts for scavenging items, as well as selling them and bartering for them with others
  • A system for modifying vehicles and becoming your own Warriors of the Road.
  • Build and maintain your own Survivor Community
  • Gamemaster advice for running an apocalypse, and all the tricks and tips to keep the action and drama moving
  • Tips for running an apocalypse in different sub-genres, such as a Vampire Apocalypse, Alien Invasion, Rise of the Kaiju, and others. Along with new player races for different apocalypse genre types

Check your weapons, verify your supplies, and prepare to break camp.

It’s time to enter the apocalypse.

It hasn't and not sure it will be. However the rules aren't that much different between this version and SWADE.

The big advantage savage worlds has over other systems is that even between versions alot of stuff stays compatible. If anything you might have to do 1 or 2 minor tweaks. For more information about conversions you can always read the Explorers to adventurers edition conversion guide.

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.
