CORE SETTING BOOK — Dustbunnies: Life Under the Couch (for Savage Worlds)

Welcome to the hidden realm of the Dustbunnies. Forget everything you think you know about life under the couch.

Dustbunnies: Life Under the Couch is the core book for a setting beneath our very feet, with a new band of whimsical creatures designed for use with Savage Worlds. It’s a game for heroes of all ages.

The Dustbunnies project was successfully funded on Kickstarter and fulfilled via DriveThruRPG in 2022.

This 6”x9” core book has custom Setting Rules, new or adapted skills and Edges, a special Arcane Background, and 16 custom Dustbunny powers. It features a section full of suggestions for how to Play With Your Kids, as well as ideas for Dustbunny Tactics. You see, our heroes love to create mischief, which they call "Trickses." Dustbunnies prefer to outwit and outmaneuver their adversaries. Mostly, that means Dustbunny actions in a combat situation will function like Tests instead of attacks. The core book features fast and fun adaptations—such as a custom list of Trickses Edges and a Creative Trickses table—to go along with the mischievous collection of Setting Rules.

That's not all! The core book has a three-act Quick-Start Adventure (The Horror: Spring Cleaning) and a Ready-to-Roll Dustbunny Band of seven pre-generated characters so you can start rolling (playing) right away. 

The pdf comes with ...

  • Positive and Negative Dustbunny Abilities.
  • Several new or adapted skills for Dustbunny characters.
  • 14 pages of Edges, including a full set of Dustbunny Trickses Edges, the Arcane Background: Roober and the Roobiteer Power Edge, plus a few Background and Social Edges such as Bauble Finder and Nookwise. There’s also a set of Legendary Edges customized for Dustbunny heroes.
  • 16 custom powers favored by Dustbunny heroes.
  • 3 new Hindrances for Dustbunny characters.
  • A full section of Setting Rules for the whimsical realm of Life Under the Couch.
  • A full section of tips for how to Play With Your Kids.
  • A set of seven Ready-to-Roll Dustbunnies, starting at Novice Rank with full Advancement charts.
  • A three-act Quick Start Adventure called “The Horror: Spring Cleaning,” which comes with a set of statistics for Friends and Foes. You can roll right into the fun with just this core rulebook and your trusty copy of Savage Worlds

Both print-on-demand (POD) versions have exactly the same content as the pdf, 113 pages printed with premium color to look super cool on your gaming shelf. You can choose a case-bound hardcover or perfect-bound softcover version. 

If you order one of the POD books, you can get the PDF at a 60% discount.

Such a great game. DB is fun if you live under a couch or not, rather if you're a little gamer or big one. Adults can have fun because this isn't your usual "kill 'em and take their stuff" kind of game. It's all about silly, strange and stupendous actions and attitudes. If you want an alternate setting with an alternate mindset (because you're bored with all the other grave robbing, kill first ask questions later games), Dust Bunnies provides a whimsical, fantastical world under the furniture.

Does this require Savage Worlds core rulebook to play?

Yes, Dustbunnies is a setting for Savage Worlds, and you do need the SWADE core rulebook.

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.
