ADD TO WISHLIST >

As game masters, our players often go off-track and leave us in the awkward situation of having to improvise some hostile terrain: a dungeon, facility, or cyberspace system. While Savage Worlds provides easy tools for these situations – Quick Encounters and Dramatic Tasks – a game master or group may wish for a bit more mechanical involvement and detail. Quick Grids fills this gap with a fast system to emulate a full run through a multi-stage area.

QUICK GRIDS

The Quick Grids supplement can be used to easily emulate a dungeon delve, breaking into a secure research facility, burning through a corporation’s cyberspace system, or infiltrating a hostile space station. It provides a fast rule framework while leaving ample room for individual hero decisions and roleplay.

Heroes or groups work their way through a grid of cards, discovering obstacles as they delve deeper into the chosen location. Depending on their goals they may have to succeed a specific number of rolls, cross the grid, or find a specific card.

I am pretty new to GMing in general and while I like the concept of the Quick Grids, there's one point I'm not sure if I understand. How do you narratively work with suits limiting abilities that can be used?

When I think about card resolution I picture a quick encounter. While I can present obstacle in a way that would suggest usage of skill under particular attribute, I don't see how/why narratively should I limit usage of other skills if they explain and narrate it accordingly.
Or I misinterpret the idea here and the narrative choice of the obstacle lies with the players, not the GM here? So they can narrate the obstacle they face as long as they use one of the skills limited by the suite?

Could you upload a printer/toner friendly version, or (better yet) enable layers so the background can be disabled.

Sadly my layout process does not support layers. PF version added. :)

This is really good. Usefully narrative, quick in resolution & concept, and more fun than just rolling some dice to accumulate successes.

Hi there, I'd just like to ask for clarification on something:
When you fail a roll, you suffer the consequences of that failure. If the card you failed on is NOT a Club face card, do you move onto the next column anyway?

That depends on the goal you are using to run the grid. :) What you are describing sounds like the Navigation goal, in which case you only move on on a success. Clubs cards are impassable irregardless of failure or success.

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.
