Children of the Apocalypse

Selected Option:

In the ruins of an ancient city, a band of treasure hunters seeks ancient artifacts to fuel the creations of a powerful Tinker Mage.  Armies trade musket fire across rolling hills as pikemen brace to receive a charge of monstrous shock troops.  An assassin in the service of the Goddess of Death and Disease sets a gunpowder charge beneath the foundations of a rival church.  A wizard faces down a psion in an arcane duel for possession of a trove of ancient texts.  All these adventures and more are daily occurrences in the world of Children of the Apocalypse, a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting for Savage Worlds.

Legend tells of how the ancient, technologically advanced civilization of Earth fell in the devastating War of the Gods.  The final blow in that war was a devastating plague that wiped out almost every living humanoid, with only a tiny fraction left to rebuild civilization.  Much has been achieved under the auspices of the Four benign deities, Iset (Justice and Learning), Edward (Magic and Psionics), Jonas (Tinkers and Scientists), and Rahel (Law and War).  New cities have risen, far from the haunted ruins of the old.  Lost technologies have been rediscovered, including the recent addition of gunpowder as a tool for construction and warfare.  Alongside these cities have also risen dominions of beastmen and other twisted creatures, some building cities and civilizations of their own.  There, and also in the shadows of the humanoid cities, the dark gods plot and plan, always seeking advantage but never pressing to the point of triggering another war of the gods.   But such a war is coming, and it will forever change the shape of the world.

Yes, SWEX or SWD is needed to run Children of the Apocalypse. An update to the setting book to cover Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is also forthcoming.

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.
