Seven Worlds Setting Guide


In the year 2217 Humanity's greatest achievement is the colonization of the nearby star systems now known as the Seven Worlds. Here Humanity lives, thrives, and prepares the next great wave of space exploration.

The Seven Worlds. This is the story of how we lost them, and of the heroes who tried to avert their fall.

An Epic realistic Science-Fiction Setting and Campaign for Savage Worlds!

  • Take the role of heroes in an epic campaign reminiscent of the classic arcs of the greatest space opera TV shows and novels!
  • Edge-of-your-seat realistic space battles combining the latest insights of science and
    weaponry with the easy and quick rules of Savage Worlds.
  • Create heroes worthy of the challenge, with dozens of new Edges, Hindrances and
    Powers, as well as new types of gear, software and weaponry!
  • Navigate the known universe in a 3-D map available at the SevenWorldsRPG web site for most popular tablets, smartphones and computers!

Some comments from early reviewers:

  •  “This isn’t the usual Firefly-meets-Star Wars space opera, it’s more like The Expanse… Overall rating: 5 out of 5.”  – Halfway Station
  • "A wealth of sci-fi that seems much more plausible than most sci-fi" -- Roleplayer's Chronicle 
  • "[The Seven Worlds Campaign] would make a pretty good TV series" -- Halfway Station
  • "The Space combat system is diamond-hard… top-notch work!" - Atomic Rockets [also awarded Seven Worlds with the Atomic Rockets Seal of Approval for Scientific Accuracy]

The Seven Worlds Setting Guide includes:

  • A detailed overview of the Seven Worlds setting.
  • Complete setting rules, including dozens of edges and hindrances, new skills and powers, and full rules for realistic space combat!
  • The official campaign's introductory adventure, A Mysterious Encounter.
  • Dozens of science sidebars that support the technology and science of the setting.

This product requires the Savage Worlds rulebook to play.

Is this game setting still supported or actively developed? I own most of the PDFs and it's too good to be forgotten or abandoned. Sadly the last comment here is from 2019, the publisher website has not been updated since 2018, and the link to Amazon to buy a print copy is broken. I would at least love to get a SWADE conversion PDF. Thanks.

Will the guide and adventures need time updated for the new edition of Savage worlds?

Just wondering, does this setting require a copy of Savage Worlds (a core rulebook of some sort) to play?it? If so, which one?

Phillip, this setting requires a copy of the Savage Worlds core rulebook. It is listed as "Savage Worlds Deluxe" here at RPGNow/DriveThruRPG. It's also available in print at Amazon, the Pinnacle site and most hobby stores.

By the way, Pinnacle has a free test drive PDF of Savage Worlds at their web site, and Seven Worlds has a Free Test Drive PDF as well. So you can try out Seven Worlds for free! :)

Any chance that the print version will also become available in Europe? If I order it from Studo2Publishing, the shipping costs considerably more than the book itself!

John M, I'm sorry the shipping impacts costs to Europe so much. I'm not sure if there's a way to change S2P shipping options. However, both the Setting Guide and Campaign Book are now listed on Amazon US. As of today (6/26) they are listed as "out of stock" because the stock is on its way to Amazon warehouses, but you should see the books there in a few days. I can't guarantee it but I understand there are cheaper shipping options available when ordering there.

Loving the look of this. Do we have any updates on availability of a print product?

LUIS ENRIQUE T June 12, 2018 5:31 pm UTC
Sorry for the late response :( the product is already available in print, only not as POD. You can find links to purchase it on Studio2Publishing and at the Seven Worlds RPG web site. This week it's being updated on Amazon so in a few days you should able to purchase the print books there as well.

Is this setting related to the Living Steel setting from many years ago? The blurb sounds very much like the background for the Seven Worlds characters...

From looking through the Free guide they've produced I can say that no this is nothing to do with the Living Steel setting. Which is a pity as I did love that setting.

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.
