Shapeshifting & Metamorphosis (Fantasy Add-On)


A Savage Worlds (Adventure Edition) add-on to cover more shapeshifting tropes.

  • Ability to transform into demons, elementals, angels, dinosaursgolems, automatons, trees...
  • A point-buy system to create your own metamorphoses
  • Dozens of abilities to pick from for combat, movement, and perception (seismic sense, flair, eagle eyes, leaper, pincers, tails, sticky skin, roar, predator, rage, trample, ability to wield weapons or equip armor...)
  • 80+ creature shapes designed for you, ready to use
  • New Modifiers, Limitations, and Edge to increase duration, focus to a single form, cast powers while transformed, transform allies, shred gear as your transform... 

Focused specifically for Fantasy settings but totally usable with many other settings as well.

Fully compatible with Tomes & Prayers and Wizards & Mystics, but those are not required. It does NOT use the Fantasy Companion (but will be updated to use the new Fantasy Companion  for SWADE when it comes out).

Get this title (at a discount) in the Fantasy Add-On series bundle.

LoL thank you very much.

A full Monster Manual would be awesome indeed. It's definitely something on my list. But not the most urgent. It's tough to make it generic and long to make it very good.
On my end, the plan is to update Companions & Familiars to match new abilities found here, and update all the other Fantasy Add-Ons to fix typo and take into account play test and feedback I received. Lot of work :D

Well you could just make it a monster creation system and add all the existing creatures, as well as an easy way to calculate how strong creatures are.

Hell you could even make it have some savage showdown style rules for playing as a wargame.

Also do you think you could make it so that the shape shifting options have Smarts and Spirit scores? There are plenty of examples of shapeshifting where animal instincts might kick in, you could add rules for fighting with them using contested rolls, maybe animal intelligence could add a -2 modifier to tests against the instincts

Rule System(s)
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.
