Do yourself a favor – take a look through the many, many products that link off of this page. Is there any real wonder why we’re finishing off Cut It to the Core Week with the single most popular and widespread multi-genre core rules engine in the gaming world?
(And, yes, I will argue to the mat that OGL/d20 – despite many interesting efforts to work it into various genres – is and always will be, first and foremost, the World’s Most Popular Fantasy Game engine well before it can be said to be a universal core set of rules).
Savage Worlds is played at just about every single convention in the U.S. and all over the world, and you’ll find every sort of setting and genre experience. It would be very difficult, I believe, to find a system more widely used across more styles of games.
And the core rulebooks is still only $10! Actually, as of this writing, it’s $7.49 for Christmas in July.
Savage Worlds is a Fast! Furious! and Fun! rules system for any genre of roleplaying game. Create your own setting, convert an existing one, or pick up one of our amazing worlds like Deadlands, Slipstream, or Weird War II.The rules give players plenty of depth to create their characters and keep bookkeeping to a minimum for the game master. If you’re looking for a game that’s fast and easy to set up, run, and play, Savage Worlds is for you!
Savage Worlds Deluxe is the newest edition, providing an update to the third printing of Savage Worlds Explorer’s Edition. It includes rules updates, new rules material, new art, more examples, an expanded Setting Rules section, Designer Notes to give you an insight into the development, and much more. It does not, however, invalidate prior printings of the rules, which you can continue enjoy.
