Fast! Furious! Fun!
Savage Worlds is the core rules for all of Pinnacle’s current roleplaying games, including Deadlands, 50 Fathoms, Weird Wars: Rome, and more. It has everything you need to play narrative or miniature-based games, with quick, simple, yet comprehensive rules for everything from combat to Dramatic Tasks, Chases, and Interludes. The emphasis is on less bookeeping for the Game Master so he can quickly and easily create worlds and adventures for any setting, and focus on the players and their actions during frenetic combat.
Check out the free Test Drive rules if you’d like to try them out.
I’ll be running a game using this system tonight. Will try and post something tomorrow on how it went.
