How To: Skill Specialization

Excellent writing! I didn't exactly know what to expect, as I wasn't particularly convinced myself by the Specialization Rule. But Donovan's work enlightened me, I am now ready to use Specialization where it matters. It also clarified a few points about Familiarization. Very well thought out, very good examples. A must have for Worlds/Settings Builders.

Heroic Maps - Prison Cells

Very good quality as usual with HeroicMaps. I used them in Roll20, they look fantastic. I had to manually resize (divided by 5) and I have to use ALT to place them because the walls around are not a full grid square (and Roll20 snaps to grid by default). Happy with my purchase :)

The Warrior Adept

Excellent Arcane Background to play characters summoning magic weapons. Very good for Fantasy, Wuxia, Psionics, even for Cyberpunk/Shadowrun, and Sci-Fi. The document is easy to understand, weapon design is very flexible yet pretty simply and quick to go. Sure you can create classic weapons like spear, hammer, dual blades, sword and shield, but also exotic choices like returning boomerangs, Zeus bolt, bear paws, electric whip... I had a lot of fun using that Arcane Background.

An interesting Arcane Background for fantasy, that can also be easily adapted and used to handle Magic Schools, Animal Totems, or even Runic Magic, and similar approaches where magic is driven through a objects of power. Document is well laid out, well written, easy to find, and contains seeds for adventures. Good work!

Expanded Professions: The Druid

For 2$, the document didn't go far enough. Some edges are lackluster. e.g. Friend of the wild improves attitude by one level, while Beast Master totally prevent you from being attacked AND gives a companion. Druidic Companion is simple reskin of Fantasy Companion Familiar, with tons of requirements. (The Companion being a WC is pretty strong, but that's also how Fantasy Companion Familiar did). Some "extra pick" options are weak (e.g. master spend an Edge to give +1 toughness to the companion, i.e. weaker than Brawny, weaker than raising Vigor). I don't get why Desert and Frozen tundra are penalized for Pulse of the Land, they ARE natural regions! It's wrath of nature more than overgrowth, it's raw elements, raw wind, pure earth/ice. Also Pulse of the Land is simple straigth weaker than Power Points (so it's only worth when you already picked Power Points Edge this Rank), and it's an Edge which can turn Hindrance (in civilized lands), bad design in my opinion.

I was expecting discussions around the powers, ideas for trappings, or minor adaptations to feel more Druidic. Nothing. There could also have been Pregen Druidic characters from various terrain types. Too bad.

Distant Journeys

Good nugget to add to your setting to give more life to your long travels. And not, it is NOT full of crap random encounter tables, it leaves the GM to introduce what would most fit the setting. Instead it proposes very simple rules that engage players and their characters' skills, to pick the right directions, find shortcuts, avoid dangers, and keep foraging on the way. Great work. Short and efficient. Rules are clear. Keep up the good work.

A great improvement to an already good system. More streamlined, more generic, more and better player interaction. Rules are easier to understand, and grouped better. Also I love Powers Modifiers. Excellent and flexible.

Date Added: 02/20/2020 14:49:34

Well designed, easy to understand, directly usable. A very good take on low-power Hedge magic. Well streamlined, very in line with Savage Worlds philosophy. Oh sure I would have wished to discuss buying off ingredients on the market, but it's already great as it. Just one page but well worth 1$! Thanks for the product.

Nicely built Arcane Background. Can be easily included in any fantasy or harry potter like setting. Yet, it is also a great inspiration for use for Priests using a divine symbol, or Mages with Staves. It is detailed yet focused, easy to read and understand. Great edges like the reactive Diviner Defense which can be adapted to other Arcane Backgrounds as well. Go get it!

Expanded Wealth
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
by Cyril R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/11/2019 17:34:44

As a GM I never liked the D&D feel of counting up every bit of treasure coin. Savage Worlds Wealth System is a great rule to still keep the interesting of fighting for money, without the numbers. However the rules are a bit short and are very abstract to put in place.

Expanded Wealth is a great addition to SWADE. Helps GMs and players to understand what can be bought, what can't, what is a good reward and what is a great one. Also the Lifestyle proposed here is a very nice addition to most settings. Your players can decide to use their treasure to raise their every day comfort.

The document is clear and well presented. Easy to read. Tables are clear. Good stuff!

The template just works. The instructions are easy to follow. The styles are enough to start with.

Affinity Publisher is a very good alternative to InDesign with a very modest price (oneshot instead of subscription). Very good way to start publishing SWAG content.

Also, the author is available on Unofficial Savage Worlds Discord and provide help/advice when we need to.

Summoner's Circle
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
by Cyril R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/21/2019 16:26:39

Excellent article. Expands around the Summon Ally power and provide LOTS of nice and creative idea around it, for all kind of settings : Cultist summoning tentacles ? Druid summoning animals ? Fire wizard summoning Fire elementals ? Scientist teleporting dinosaurs out of his personnal zoo ? Psionic give forms to your ennemy fears ? You can do it.

Only point where I would differ is that Summon Ally is fixed to a single ally choice per rank, while I thik the "With the GM’s approval, the player may swap abilities." and "power modifiers like fly, light, and such" are crying for multiple possible summons within the same trapping (Animal summoner ? Novice could be a cat, a badger, a snake or a crow, and you couldn't use "light" modifier. Elemental summoner ? Could have earth, ice, water, ... elements, your "light" modifier would have to be fire, and "fly" would have to be Air. and so on). But that's personnal taste.

Article is easy to read, nice layout, gives many examples, sparks many ideas. near 40 pages that deserve their price !

Artificer's Codex
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
by Cyril R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/07/2019 12:02:13

SWADE Core Book has not much to offer for Magic Item creation (Arcane Devices is somewhat ok for Wands and Alchemy but that's it). This Artificier Codex expands SWADE base in a simple and logical way, and make it clearly interesting route to design an Artificier character. The permanent loss of powerpoint prevent players or NPC into turning into an Ever-running Magic Item Factory, and the proposal to use Setting-specific power point sources (e.g. crystals) makes it a nicely balanced Magic Item creation for our players.

The document is short, clear and easy enough to read. Grab it !
