Savage Worlds Handbook: Perilous Places & Serious Situations


This sourcebook contains ways to liven up your games by looking at different locales and the varying dangers they present.

Inside you’ll find rules for expanded arctic and desert survival, the dangers of collapsing tunnels and stampedes, fighting atop rooftops, crumbling cliffs, tall columns, rope bridges, underwater, and on vertical surfaces, the hazards of stormy nights and swamps, and expanded traps.

Perilous Places doesn’t contain definitive, “must-use” rules. Instead, it’s a toolbox, giving GMs plentiful options to suit any style of game, and allowing them to use the same backdrop at varying power levels.

Players be warned—combat just got a whole lot more perilous!

This PDF was created with some sort of Assistive Reading features that do not work in most 3rd party viewers. I had to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader to see the content but I was not able to disable the incompatible features in any way.

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.
