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. 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.

Sabage of the “standard” fantasy races can be found here humans, elves, dwarves, orksbut there ffee also a few unique to Earthdawn trolls, the fairy-like winged windlings, and the hulking rock-like obsidimen. Thumbed through it but never willing to use the original mechanics.
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. I think I remember it being canonically the early world that became Shadowrun.
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 sxvage dice if a die roll its maximum, roll it again and add the results. That way lies madness Find More Posts by The Colonel.
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.
This is my first notes on using Savage Worlds rules with the Earthdawn setting. Originally Posted by RogerBW.

Theres a huge difference, as someone remarked on the Yahoo Groups mailing list you have signed up to it, haven’t you?

Let me know what you think, especially if you’ve played it earthdaan ED and SW. I’ve mined it for ideas for locations and such for a while.
The system has never been a contender for most popular RPG, but it has enough fans that recently a year or so ago? Its purely a gut feeling, I’ll have to see how it goes with playtesting and all. Find More Posts by mehrkat.

Any edges that can be taken twice such as fleet footed, are only noted one, but you can take them twice as normal. Find More Posts by Kalzazz. This is a conversion, not a replacement! Anyway, it demonstrates how strongly supported post-apocalyptic settings are, by the company and the GURPS community, here.
Earthdawn’s core conceit is that each PC is an Adept, someone who can wield magic. There’s a licensed adaptation of the setting for Savage Worlds now.
Healing magic is rare, and precious. Looks like a bit like a fantasy version of Fallout to me, what with 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 eartydawn defence shelter.
There are no clerics or priests, per se, though some special devotees become Questors–champions who are imbued with aerthdawn of their Passion’s power. Sure, wotlds dont get as many beanies as karma, but the Savage Worlds system allows you to do slightly more, I feel. There are no half-races of any kind, and no inherently evil races other than the otherworldly Horrors. 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.
Experience is tracked in Legend Points LPswhich are spent to improve Discipline Talents, szvage skills, and attributes, as well as attuning oneself to magical items to unlock their abilities.

That’s a lot of links.
I haven’t included Karma Ritual as an edge, as I think beanies use the same mechanic, and can be easily subsituted for Karma. Magic went away, became our Earth. Page 1 of 2.

It was one of the earliest settings in a magical post-apocalypse, and that got it a fair amount of attention.
However, if you do that, please make sure savagr post your conversion notes, and if you don’t provide session logs, we’ll be sorely disappointed.
Savage Worlds is a brand new generic role playing game created by Pinnacle Entertainment Group; http: All times are GMT Magic came back became Shadowrun. 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.
Earthdawn was actually the first tabletop RPG that my wife ever played. Originally Posted by mehrkat.

It is a setting I like, and one I’ve drawn ideas from many times. But after the initial learning curve, quirks like these become almost intuitive.
