Ethan J.: Can you do a zombie rpg style game with savage worlds?
Walter Whitman: Took your advice and watched Event Horizon. It was awesome!!
Chozo Tull: I think SW is more adaptable than Legend, but also SW would give you a more cinematic feel, so if you want something more down to earth and "problematic" Legend might feel better. I just feel SW is an overall better and smoother system. As for spellcasting, SW allows you to play it as you want !
Biopunked: Since I ve never run SW I have a quick question for you guys:
Which system would you prefer for a high fantasy world, SW or Legend?
Do you think Savage World does spellcasting etc better?
MMODoubter: The thing I see that impresses right off the bat is the binding, which allows the book to lay flat. That is a big deal for me.
MMODoubter: Yep. It is a guilty pleasure of mine.
MMODoubter: Wizards versus tanks? HELL YEAH!
I played a mage in WoW, and really enjoyed the battlegrounds where I could fight against the siege vehicles. Pretty damned cool.
Wolf Dog Moon: I just picked the Deluxe Explorers guide. The store only had one copy. Its really neat. I have a lot of cool ideas to try out with my kids.
pspboy7: I looked over the Deluxe version of Savage Worlds and it's much easier to grasp than the explorers version. It's only worth the price if you really need it or don't already have the explorers book.
Nathan Reed: With the errata already out, I would say wait for the Smaller (explorer) Sized version (where the errata should hopefully be included) - hopefully out in the next 6 months. That or get only the PDF version as some of the Errata is already there, but there is still enough to make question paying $30 (vs. a cheaper PDF or waiting for the cheaper Explorer size).
HumanityInsaity: i got this book a few days ago, and it really helped me understand the rules better, it can also help my gaming group start the game with the archetypes to work with.
(They've generally played with d20 systems.) Also, something that seems stupid but i nice touch anyway, they added pictures to the bestiary section. and more one sheet adventures make this an awesome game.
Avatarofhendrix: Wow, I'm currently running a 50 Fathoms, Necessary Evil and probably going to start a Deadlands game pretty soon. I'm glad to see that a lot of the rules I made up to be fair (Spirit roll on Fear effects unless it's a strictly horror setting and Shaken characters may act if they roll a raise) were implemented into the deluxe edition.
Pedro Barrenechea: have you picked up the new Arcanis Role Playing Game? Looks real good.. you would review it...
