Savage Worlds Deluxe


Savage Worlds is a Fast! Furious! and Fun! rules system for any genre of roleplaying game. Create your own setting, convert an existing one, or pick up one of our amazing worlds like Deadlands, Slipstream, or Weird War II.The rules give players plenty of depth to create their characters and keep bookkeeping to a minimum for the game master. If you're looking for a game that's fast and easy to set up, run, and play, Savage Worlds is for you!

Savage Worlds Deluxe is the newest edition, providing an update to the third printing of Savage Worlds Explorer's Edition. It includes rules updates, new rules material, new art, more examples, an expanded Setting Rules section, Designer Notes to give you an insight into the development, and much more. It does not, however, invalidate prior printings of the rules, which you can continue enjoy.

What rules system does this use? Is it a D20 platform or its own set of rules?

Savage Worlds is its own system. Attributes and Skills are rated as dice - d6 Strength or d8 Guns. Players usually roll a Skill die and a "Hero Die" (d6) using the highest result. 4+ is a success with degrees of success for high rolls. The dice "explode" - re-roll and add if you get the highest value on a die. It has "Hero Points" (Bennies), stunts/feats, and levels, but no "classes" (you can take level ups that give you the basics of a class/prestige class but they aren't required).

One thing that is a little different about it is PCs are pretty fragile but the game is designed for characters to lead "supporters" (NPC followers/allies) into battle. There are plenty of tweaks, hacks, and setting-specific rules allowing PCs to function more like other RPGs though. Initiative is also based on playing cards.

It's a fun system that plays pretty fast. It has plenty of fans who love it and you can find settings that customize the game for just...See more

This title is listed as 'PDF', not 'Watermarked PDF'. The downloaded copy, however, is watermarked. This needs to be fixed.

Yes Right, this in US Letter format or the explorer edition in "paddigest" format (same format Savage Rifts books).

This is precisely what I came here to find out. So, does anyone have an answer?

Yep, it's been updated. (And it's free to download the updated PDF if you've ever bought this title.)

I just bought the PDF and noticed that the June 12, 2015 update has a broken ToC. For some reason the chapters are nested under other other headings. For instance, Chapter One appears under Savage Settings, Chapter Two is under Advancement, etc. Only the Introduction chapter appears top-level. This makes it kind of hard to navigate within chapters.

I second that. The table of content is correct if you look only to the paper, but if you look at the PDF navigation, it's totaly broken.

When I printed the PDF it happens that what should be on two different pages (one left and one right) is in fact on one side and on the other side of the same page. And so, the page numbers are on the inside of the book. I'm very disapointed.

I wrote to the editor and the PDF was updated. Now it's fixed.

If you're using Acrobat, for viewing in two page view, uncheck the option View»Page Display»show cover page in two page view. For printing, start with page 2... then print the cover separately.

Thank you! I was really starting to wonder what the difference was before I buy one or the other.

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.
