Savage World snippet!

Posted by Black Book Editions (Creator)

Hey there,

we already hit the 27k, it's going well :)

To celebrate this, lets take a closer look at the Savage Worlds conversion that we unlocked yesterday! This is something we wanted to do for quite some time already, as SW is a great and fun game system, a good alternative for those who prefer to play with a system they are already familiar with. Thanks to one of our Savage World expert Yannick Le Guédart and your incredible support, this finally becomes reality!

So, what will it roughly contain?

It will be a PDF containing some rules suggestions to bring some of that unique Polaris feel to the basic Savage World rules. You will need the Savage Worlds Core Book (Deluxe: Explorer's Edition) (French version) and the Savage Worlds Science-Fiction companion (French version) to have all the references. For those of you who are not familiar with this game system, you can find all the info here: https://www.peginc.com/product-category/savage-worlds/ (French version).

Chapters will include rules on:

  • Races

  • Traits

  • Edges & Hindrances

  • New Skills

  • Special rules

  • Underwater movement, pressure...

  • Underwater gear

  • Polaris Effect

To give you an idea of how this will look like, here is a mock up of a sample page describing the Techno-Hybrid with its Savage Worlds statblock (exact stats might still change though)!

The rules are written and will now be revised by our team and playtesters before hitting translation in a couple weeks. No final page count is determined yet, but it should be a small PDF leaflet of approximately 20 pages. The PDF will be out a couple of months after the Kickstarter ends :)

Thanks again for your support, and now lets unlock the slip case!
