Sagas & Six-Guns is a Savage Worlds Adventure Edition setting and rulebook about a mythical and uninhabited frontier settled by Scandinavian cultures. A mash-up of the Old West and the Old Norse, Sagas & Six-Guns is what happens when Beowulf takes on Grendel with a pair of six-shooters and his trusty axe. 

The setting and rule-book is written by Robert Buckey, who has teamed up with GALLANT KNIGHT GAMES. The game utilizes the Savage World: Adventure Edition ruleset. 

You do need the Savage World: Adventure Edition rulebook to play this game.

We aim to give you the tools you need to tell fantastic stories of shootists wielding pistols while shouting oaths to the Aesir in Valhalla.  Your heroes will battle everything from cattle rustlers and train robbers, to trolls and maybe even a dragon.  You can be anything from a mundane pistolero or gunmaiden, to a runecasting seer, to a Valkyrie cut off from Asgard. 

Sagas and Six Guns makes use of the highly adaptable Savage Worlds rules to play out the adventures of your heroes in Western Midgard.  It also introduces some exciting setting specific rules to enhance the experience, to represent both the gritty Western and Viking tropes.  Pistol dueling, or Holmgang, will be represented, allowing your characters to face down other steely eyed gunslingers. 

In keeping with the Norse traditions of Saga telling, and to represent the renown your character will accrue over the course of their adventures, rules are included to represent the spread of your personal Saga, and the benefits that affords you.

Lastly, social rules are included for Ring Giving, to represent your characters gathering a large posse of warriors to their cause.

We have just finished our 4th session. We mostly used the pre-gens and short included adventures as well as a Deadlands one-sheet. It has been the great the mash-up works with plenty of jokey crossovers. As GM I really like that there is no native people as most such encounters are a little obvious following very well worn tropes.

Maybe an expansion to include Skraelings (what's a Western setting without some interaction with the local natives)? Some Chimera based Wild West Critters?

Thanks for the response.

Just got the hardcover and am enjoying the quirky setting. Glad you Savage World. Well done. Any plans for expansions, such as maps of the kingdoms? Maybe some more beasties and Wild West tech?

Hey Jon, author here. We are working on more material setting-wise, including a map and expanded info on the kingdoms and other political entities. There may very well be some more beasties and whatnot in there as well. Glad you're enjoying it!

About Improved Holmganger - Normally any "Improved" edge bonus replaces the bonus in the base edge (similar to how it is written in Improved Pistol Whip), but for this one there's also the word "additional" in the edge description.
Does that mean it is meant to stack with its base edge bonus?

Hi Nir M, author here. I see where you're coming from, and apologize that wasn't clear. The bonus for Improved Holmganger should replace the bonus for the basic version of the Edge. Hope that clears it up, and thanks for the support!

The website is showing the physical book options as PWYW for me.

A fun take on a different kind of ‘weird west’ game.
My group is having a blast playing with all the Viking tropes within a moderately familiar western setting.

My only gripe with this setting book is it’s lack of a map. It describes the world well, just doesn’t have a map to reference.

Gallant Knight Games has created a great game that fits right next to The Sixth Gun and Deadlands on your Weird West shelf; fits very well into the Savage Worlds mindset, and takes good advantage of the new SWADE rules. The Plot Point Campaign is flexible, and quite useful in both fantasy and Western games. If I have a complaint, it's that the primer of worlds isn't as fleshed out as I would like. It's not the producer's fault, but with the many SW settings, I've become accustomed to the single setting book being the whole maybe some onesheets or expansions in the future?

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.
