EPIC! The RPG Blog: Review – Earthdawn Player’s Guide (Savage Worlds edition)
Savage Worlds has its own method of increasing the charecters resistance to damage, and I feel that this is an Earthdawn system feature, as opposed to an Earthdawn world feature, i. I haven’t included Karma Ritual as an edge, as I think beanies use the same mechanic, and can be easily subsituted for Karma.

Background, Wild Card and Legendary edges listed in the Test Drive rules are available to all Charecters, other edges are restricted to those available from the profession s the charecter belongs to. Did anyone ever play this, and how was it?
I thumbed through the books when they initially came out, and I remember some discussions that indicated the Earthdawn setting was the future of Shadowrun even though the mechanics differed. Earthdawn was actually the first tabletop RPG that my wife ever played. Find More Posts by Kalzazz. But after the initial learning curve, quirks like these become almost intuitive.
There is a 2nd Edition, not sure how much support it has gotten or how recently it was released.
I’ve mined it for ideas for locations and such for a while. Originally Posted by RogerBW Nice ideas, but the adventures IME tended to be awfully “go down a hole in the ground, kill what’s there and bring back the treasure”.
As an earlier poster mentioned, all characters have artistic skills that are used to prove to strangers that you are free of the Horrors’ taint. IIRC, the default setting started in a vault that somebody with too much time on their hands identified based on topography and ruins as a location in the Balkans, somewhere.
There are no clerics or priests, per se, though some special devotees become Questors–champions who are imbued with some of their Passion’s power. All times are GMT The worst threats are those posed by the Horrors, which are attracted to magic and seek to corrupt those they come in contact with.

Just picked up an ancient looking fRPG hardback from the second had bin at a convention Its purely a gut feeling, I’ll have to see how it goes with playtesting and all. There earthdawwn no half-races of any kind, and no inherently evil races other than the otherworldly Horrors. A badly wounded character can take quite some time to heal fully, even with help.
Anyway, it demonstrates how strongly supported post-apocalyptic settings are, by the company and the GURPS community, here. That way lies madness Theres a huge difference, as someone remarked on the Yahoo Groups mailing list you have signed up to it, haven’t you? fdee
Only a few Disciplines are actually magicians spellcasters ; other Adepts manifest their magic by being uncannily good at fighting, or thieving, or performing, or some other calling. We backed that, and when we’re able to fit my wife’s campaign back into our group’s rotation, we’ll be converting it from Third to Fourth. Find More Posts by The Colonel.
I played in a campaign many years ago, I sqvage playing a Windling basically a sprite Elementalist type of mage with a “fetish” for using I think they were ffree blood charms a “minor” magic item that you sacrificed some of your health to empower, your health was reduced until you used the charm to boost spellsI had an obnoxious dodge so they GM pretty much could never hit me, so I had basically linked up enough charms to bring my health down to if I got tapped I was dying.

However, if you do that, please make sure to post your conversion notes, and if you don’t provide session logs, we’ll be sorely disappointed. Sure, you dont get as many beanies as karma, but the Savage Worlds system allows you to do slightly more, I feel. Instead of conventional gods, Earthdawn has the Passions, who serve much the same purpose but lack the sort of widely earfhdawn religions that most settings have.
So, if you wanted to try to run an Earthdawn game with better mechanics, I think you could do it really easily. Healing magic worods rare, and precious.
The setting svaage hit or miss, but it is absolutely my favorite published rules system I have run it both straight by the book and also well house ruled. Earthdawn has a number of other rules that take some getting used to, such as the progression of dice as your ability or effect increases using a progressively larger die up to d12, then using multiple diceand “exploding” dice if a die roll its maximum, roll it again and add the results.
It is a setting I like, and one I’ve drawn ideas from many times. Find More Posts by Fred Brackin. Blood magic savwge be used by any Adept, for a variety of purposes, but usually to enforce an oath, to implant certain types of magic items that are powered by life force, or in desperation to fuel more potent magic at great risk, of course.
Adepts have a resource called Karma, that can be spent to improve the use of talents by adding an extra die to the roll.
