Earthdawn’s core conceit wavage that each PC is an Adept, someone who can wield magic. 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.

IIRC, ssvage 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.
I think I remember it being canonically the early world that became Shadowrun.
SavageWorlds Earthdawn Conversion/Adaption Rules
Its purely a gut feeling, I’ll have to see how it goes with playtesting and all. So, if you wanted to try to run an Earthdawn game with better mechanics, I think you could do it really easily.
Blood magic can be used by any Adept, for a savzge 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. Did anyone ever play this, and how was it? Magic went away, became our Earth. But after the initial learning curve, quirks like these become almost intuitive.
Theres a huge difference, as someone remarked on the Yahoo Groups mailing list you have signed up to it, haven’t you?
All times are GMT That way lies madness This is a conversion, not a replacement! It managed to please neither Earthdawn nor Savage Worlds fans. Just picked up an ancient looking fRPG hardback from the second had bin at a convention The time now is I thumbed through the books when they fdee came out, and I remember some discussions that indicated the Earthdawn setting was the future of Shadowrun even though the mechanics differed.

The worst threats are those posed by the Horrors, which are attracted to magic and seek to corrupt those they come in contact with. Earthdawn has a number of other rules that take some getting used to, such as the progression of dice as your ability frew 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.
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.
There’s a licensed adaptation of the setting for Savage Worlds now. Let me know what you think, especially if you’ve played it both ED and SW. 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. Earthdawn was actually the first tabletop RPG that my wife ever played. As an earlier poster sabage, all characters have artistic skills that savag used to prove to strangers that you are free of the Horrors’ taint.
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.

Looks like a bit like a fantasy version of Fallout to me, what earthdawm the shtick about everyone hiding in underground vaults for a while – and chimes nicely with some ideas I had in the past about the dungeon as civil defence shelter.
Anyway, it demonstrates how strongly supported post-apocalyptic settings are, by the company and the GURPS community, here. Sure, you saavage get as many beanies as karma, but the Savage Worlds system allows you to do slightly more, I feel.
I’ve mined it for ideas for locations and such for a sagage. That’s a lot of links. Find More Posts by tshiggins. There is a 2nd Edition, not sure how much support it has gotten or how recently it was released.
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. 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. I’m a fan of both, and will be buying both sets 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 lot of room for mass combat rules!
