I have the previous edition and like it don't love it. Though it is my first choice when I want to throw minis down on a mat. I am very curious as to what is different in this edition.

I have heard that some of the edges are different, I sort of hope that they got rid of static bonuses, which I felt were way too common in the addition I have.

Hi Alan. If you didn't love the last edition you might not love this edition either. The changes are pervasive but mostly in the details. The core rules all remain the same. There's a comprehensive list somewhere on our website and summary threads on forums and stuff, but there are far too many changes for me to list here. All the best no matter what you decide. :)

Just wanted to say...What a fantastic book! I am really coming to love Savage Worlds, and this is coming from a 40+years D&D player. Savage Worlds has become my go-to system for any new campaign or RPG I want to play or design. Thanks Shane H for such a great product!

Now I just want to get a print version! LOL!

Hi Shane, I was wondering if you plan to create an "explorer" edition of the adventure edition: something in a smaller format, easier to carry around. I've bought the Signed Leather Adventure Edition and I'm enjoying it (I'm reading it at the moment, not playing), but I believe it's not a book to carry around. I would love something like the Deluxe Explorer edition updated to the new rules.

Thanks

Hi Daniele, afraid not. The economics of it just don't work anymore. Thanks for asking though. :)

Will SWADE work with settings that were written for the previous edition of Savage Worlds like Hellfrost or High Space?

With a little work. Most of the changes were under the hood, so to speak: An Edge now acts differently, a rule now acts differently, but all the key interface points like character stats and so on are the same, most of the Edges have the same names, etc.

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is a GREAT improvement above previous version. I like how it is steamlined, more precise, and has more options. I love the Support rules. I already greatly appreciate the new Social Edges, new Powers, Power Modifiers. Tricks and Tests of Wills merged into that flexible Tests that can make you Vulnerable or Distracted, the great interactions with Assassin or Counterattacks, and the fact the GM can decide a raise on those Tests doesn't Shake but do something special instead.

SWADE is very good. Take it, eat it :)

Tell me. Can this handle the following and how well?

- mlp based rpg. I have a few kids into it.

- post apocalyptic.

- one shot modern setting

- secret of NIMH.

We'd say easily yes, but since that's subjective I suggest you ask around on the Savage Worlds forums or Facebook page. Cheers :)

SWADE is the latest edition of the RPG System that brought me back to gaming. The system is truly fun, fast, & furious. The broad range of settings, quick set up, and easy to use rules make it indispensable for the time crunched gamer.

Savage Worlds became our main gaming system and SWADE is the best edition. Really like the core mechanics, Social Conflict, Dramatic Tasks rules

One of the most flexible game systems available in that it works for about any genre you could want. It's also one of the most affordable and easy to learn. I highly recommend it to new and old role-players.

Is this updated to the final release version? (Saw the print version on the shelf in my FLGS this week and wondering if this matches it)

There is not a store near where I live. Not necessarily a deal-breaker but it would have been nice to order POD from here, as I do with other RPGs.

Does this edition of Savage Worlds have everything from the previous edition of the Super Powers Companion in it?
Customer avatar
Cyril R August 22, 2019 10:40 am UTC
PURCHASER
Nope. The Super Powers Companion will remain a separate book (no idea when it will be updated to SWADE).

However, this new version of Savage Worlds provide lots of very good improvements and flexibility. You shall defintively buy it !

The size issue of your pdf file has little to do with the dpi of your images. Run preflight and analyze to see the issues you are having. your structure is a mess.

If you don't see them in your gold copy, it's very possible that the pre-download changes made by PDFlib (from OBS) are causing the issues. Given how useless the "secured" watermark is, I'm shocked they bother given all the issues it creates.

The new update today is supposedly about 50 megabytes, but it's actually only 26.33. Did the high res version get compressed when uploading to One Bookshelf?

The book here is still 5.2, while there is 5.3 available on Pinnacle. Why the file is not updated here as well?

I hope you guys got the right copy to the printers, cause none of the changes to powers that are mentionned in the update notes are in the 5.2 pdf.

My mistake! I've checked again (After getting some sleep after 5 am.. ) I've found the changes to be there. Sleep deprivation messes with your ability to take in information. Sorry.

Very happy to have supported the kickstarter. Enjoying the products as they come out.

Without getting into a spaces vs. tabs argument, please for the love of all that is unholy stop sending the product links to us with RPGNow urls. I'm too new here to care about the history, but what I do know is that OBS has not cracked the code on "Secure Single Sign-on".

Last message from OBS was that RPGNow would be put to bed. It is curiously irritating to be forced to re-login to RPGNow to make the link stick to the user library.

Please help me, at least, be nothing but happy when I see the publisher messages! Thanks again for a great kickstarter!

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.
