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. Page 1 of 2.

I also haven’t included Durability as an edge. Thumbed through it but never willing to use the original mechanics. A badly wounded character can take quite some time to heal fully, even with help.

Did anyone ever play this, and how was it? The time now is 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. Blood magic can 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.
Instead of conventional gods, Earthdawn has the Passions, who serve much the same purpose but lack the sort of widely organized religions that most settings have. Find More Posts by Fred Brackin.
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.
Let me know what you think, especially if you’ve played it both ED and SW. We backed that, and when we’re able savwge fit my wife’s campaign back into our group’s rotation, we’ll be converting it from Third to Fourth.
All times are GMT Last edited by tshiggins; at I’m a fan of both, and will be buying both savzge of rules, but I like the idea of easy to run mass combats, and with some of the recent Earthdawn releases, such as Barsaive at War, there looks like a aerthdawn of room for mass combat rules!

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.

There are no half-races of any kind, and no inherently evil races other than the otherworldly Horrors. Find More Posts by patchwork. Adepts have a resource called Karma, that can be spent to improve the use of talents by adding an extra die to the roll. I’ve mined it for ideas for locations and such for a while.
I played in a campaign many years ago, I was playing a Windling basically a sprite Elementalist type of mage with a “fetish” for using I think they were called 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.
The worst threats are those posed by the Horrors, which are attracted to magic and seek to corrupt those they come in contact with.
Many of the “standard” fantasy races can be found here humans, elves, dwarves, orksbut there are also a few unique to Earthdawn trolls, the fairy-like winged windlings, and the hulking rock-like obsidimen. Earthdawn has a number of other rules that take frse 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 farthdawn, roll it again and add the results.
She was lucky enough to have a couple of excellent GMs for the system, so it’s one of the few systems that she knows and likes well enough to have run herself.
SavageWorlds Earthdawn Conversion/Adaption Rules
Earthdawn was actually the first tabletop RPG that my wife ever played. The setting is 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. 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.
Any edges that can be taken twice such as fleet footed, are only noted one, but you can take them twice as normal. It is a setting I like, and one I’ve drawn ideas from many times. 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. Magic went away, became our Earth.
