The apocalypse has happened. In a flash, the world changed. The dead walked the streets looking for people to devour. Water stopped running. Power went out. Soon, the whole world was turned upside down.

Where were you, survivor? More importantly...what do you do now?

Welcome to the world of Dead End, a zombie themed survival apocalypse setting for Savage Worlds. In the world of Dead End survival is the key factor that you, as a player or as a Game Master, will be focused on. A Survivor will be forced to scavenge for all of their basic necessities. Food, water, shelter, medicine. Everything we take for granted in our daily lives is no longer a guarantee. Formerly open communities are now locked behind makeshift barricades, armed guards making sure that no undesirables can enter. Bands of raiders seek to take a Survivor's supplies for themselves. Hunger and thirst are always on the edge of one's thought, dwindling stocks of ammo and parts are a constant concern. And of course, there's the ever present threat of the relentless shambling dead, their hungry moans drifting through the silence...

With over 150 pages, Dead End will test the Survivor in you. With features like:

  • New Edges and Hindrances: These will help you mold your Survivor as you see fit.
  • New Gritty Damage Rules: These will keep you on your toes as you do your best to survive.
  • Humanity System: This will see just how human you are, or care to be.
  • Infestation Deck: This brand-new card mechanic will not only flavor your experience with its themed stylized suits and numbers, but also bring more of the unique Dead End feel to your table as the deck reveals new situational modifiers and events that promise to complicate life for any unwary Survivors that force another draw. The Infestation Deck also doubles as a Dead End Action Deck!

Requires Savage Worlds Adventure Edition!

will we be getting a POD

POD is coming but there is a much longer process. We are currently waiting on proofs to be sure it meets quality standards.

Will the POD be discounted for those who purchase the PDF prior to the POD being available?

As the POD is not ready yet, we're unable to answer this one currently. We're looking into it right now and when we get answers we'll share them.

Is this SWADE? I already bought it but I was curious if I need to think about conversion while I am reading it.

I’ve only had the chance to page through it, but the character archetypes given in chapter 2 all feature the “core skills” from SWADE, including Common Knowledge, so it appears to be SWADE compatible.

It's SWADE, you're good to go if you pick it up.

What is the difference between the two files? Only quality differences, not content?
Customer avatar
David S November 01, 2020 2:28 pm UTC
I apologize what different files are you asking about? Currently the only option available is a watermarked PDF. A POD option will become available later and the pdf will be updated with errata as necessary but there aren't multiple files for the PDF.

I see two downloadable files:

dead_end.pdf
dead_end_digital.pdf

672 bytes difference in file size

We're looking into why there are two files for download, as there should only be one. Thanks for the heads up on it.

Our apologies for the confusion. The listing has been updated with the correct pdf file:

So what makes this setting distinct from, say, War of the Dead?
Customer avatar
Scott W October 31, 2020 3:25 pm UTC
WotD was more of a DieHard meets Z Nation. This is more true to classic zombie apocalypse tropes.
Customer avatar
Dustin S October 31, 2020 5:06 pm UTC
Scott called it. Dead End focuses more on difficulties related to survival. The zombies are present and deadly, but the world is the real antagonist.

Format
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.
