      I'm in the same boat as Gary and would love to give my PDF copy to a friend. Any chance that can happen?

      What if we already have a copy? Can we give this new copy to a friend?

      The "give it a try!" from Shane can not be stressed enough. It's so easy too! First time I ran savage worlds was a short dungeon crawl I completely made up on the fly. During fights I used the monsters right out of the book, only with a piece of scrap paper for minimal bookkeeping. My players created their characters from the ground up, which was also very fast, and easy to comprehend. And with the archetypes in the new Deluxe rulebook it will be even faster and easier to jump in right away. After the game, I was completely sold on Savage Worlds, and two of my players were converted as well. Haven't run anything else since.
      Great system!
      And I hope those of you new to Savage Worlds will have similar experiences! :D
