Savage Worlds is a Fast! Furious! and Fun! rules system for any genre of roleplaying game.

Create your own setting, convert an existing one, or pick up one of our amazing settings like DeadlandsRippers, or 50 Fathoms. The rules give players plenty of depth to create their characters and keep bookkeeping to a minimum for the Game Master. If you’re looking for a game that’s fast and easy to set up, run, and play, Savage Worlds is for you!

Savage Worlds handles pulp action, gritty noir, supers, hard scifi, space opera, horror,and anything you can imagine!

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is the latest version of Savage Worlds. It does not, however, invalidate prior printings of the rules, which you can continue to enjoy.

#SWADE is used on most social media. Search for “#SWADE” and see what people are saying about our game!

NOTE: The current version is 5.7. On Feb 14th, 2021, we updated the Stunned entry on the State Summaries table on page 203. For all changes since release, please see the latest update on the PEG website.

Can anyone tell me what size this print out please? I would be very keen if it prints at that smaller size the older versions of Savage Worlds were made available in, but understand if it has been changed to full-size (like most source books). Thanks for your time.

As-is it's 6.625 by 10.125 (graphic novel size), but if you're printing at home you can change those parameters as you see fit (print to fit, for example).

Hey, I'm just curious what the major changes are between this edition and Savage World Deluxe, other than not having an explorer's edition?

Hey there!
I saw that document was updated today. I was expected the 6.0 version, but it turns out the file was the 5.7 version. I'm guessing this is an error?

Nevermind, disregard! Turns out I had somehow downloaded the wrong file (the previous version). Which is strange, because that was the file that was reported to be updated. Maybe a system error. In any case, I have the 6.0 version. Thank you very much!!!

Pretty stupid not to have a POD available for an OOP book you can't find now, or they need to do another massive print run or start putting the rules in all the core book sets they release.

No need to be rude. POD doesn't give the quality we want or the price you want. We did another massive print run nearly eight months ago but you may have heard there's been a container shortage for the better part of the last year, delaying most every manufacturer's books who print overseas.

I'd like to know if anyone tried printing this book, and if so, if they had problems doing so.
I've tried a few times, and after p.3 I keep geting error messages.

I had the UPS store print it out for me because I had the same issues. I believe they had an issue as well but it worked out somehow.

Is there a Print On Demand copy in the future? -- if not, can Shane Hensley offer a copyright approval via this thread, so that those of us who want a printed copy may do so at our own expense? -- Print On Demand coming or Copyright Authorization now: may we know what we can do to get a printed copy? Thanks and let us know. -- I will look on Am**zon or W**lmart.com for details, but it would be nice to have the option here.

I read below - Pinnacle doesn't offer POD. --- Does that mean they might offer Copyright Authorization should efforts to locate a print copy turn unfruitful? We will see.

We don't do POD...you can order a hardback directly from our site for the same or less cost and much higher quality.

The sticky note on the front allows you to print it for yourself...just show your copy representative. Cheers!

The print-cost may comparable; but, the Shipping to Canada is Prohibitive: $33USD (shipping) for SWADE to Canada makes the book almost DOUBLE (net $72.99USD)! I can't justify spending that. Unless something can be done about the exorbitant shipping costs, I presume POD would not matter.

If you're in the USA, that is. It is considerably more expensive when you need to have it shipped to continental europe.

I've used Savage Worlds a few years back and liked it for what it was - a miniature game with basic RPG rules for social encounters. I always felt some things were missing.
This edition addresses all my issues I had - I like the social conflict rules, the new skills, adjusted edges and removal of a lot of situational modifiers.

Also, it is nice to see the card decks are finally made available - everything is so convincing that I bought the big box with all the content available.

I'll find out soon, if I love this edition or will like it as I did the older ones. But all stars are aligning towards a new found love.

If you have a setting in mind these are the rules to play it.
"But can it do..."
"Yes. it can."
"But you didn't let me finish."
"I didn't need to. Horror, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Western, Spy, Military, Comedy, Romance, Zombies, Mysteries, Whatever it can do it."
And it will do it fast, furious, and fun, so that your story is well underway 2 hours in, and not just starting round 3 of the first encounter.

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. :)

Personally, I'd like to say, I prefer the "Explorer" size of books. They are great to carry and I think they look better on a book shelf than the standard size. Like a Graphic Novel or something. If the economics of it doesn't work anymore, maybe it would work better without the larger books :)

Although, so many of my book purchases these days are digital, like this one right now, that maybe neither of the sizes make sense.

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 :)

- secret of NIMH.

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.

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.

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.
