By a Thread (SWADE)


Welcome to By a Thread, a setting for Savage Worlds. Prepare yourself for stories of adventure, mystery, and intrigue as you and the rest of your outfit struggle to make your way through the cities and wilderness of the Northern Provinces of the former Aerodom on the continent of Chevas. Prepare to defend yourself not only against common criminals and possibly the odd assassin hired by a nobleman or titan of industry, but also against goblins, orcs, and trolls. Even the undead can sometimes be found laying plans for the ruination of the Noble Races. Play as a dwarf, elf, faerie, human, or ogre, and equip yourself with the best the land has to offer: revolvers, pistols, submachine guns, rifles, and even machine rifles and grenades. Prepare yourself for adventure in a fantasy realm featuring 1920’s technology and culture. Travel overland at your peril or simply buy a ticket for a dirigible to take you from city to city. The sky is the limit to what you can accomplish, but can you save your city or the region and put the myriad threats to rest?

Yo, long time DnD player here. I had has a chance to test out this campaign and this is very well written. Even for my first time playing Savage World, this campaign absolutely amazed me. It has very well balanced mix of combat, mystery, and role-playing. I would highly recommended for any group of friends who want a well-balanced campaign.

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.
