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’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!
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. Originally Posted by mehrkat I think I remember it being canonically the early world that became Shadowrun.
SavageWorlds Earthdawn Conversion/Adaption Rules
The szvage is hit or savgae, but it is absolutely my favorite published rules system I have run it both straight by the book and also well house ruled. However, wprlds you do that, please make sure to 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: The worst threats are those posed by the Horrors, which are attracted to magic and seek to corrupt those they come in contact with.
But after the initial learning curve, quirks like these become almost intuitive. There are no half-races of rarthdawn kind, and no inherently evil races other than the otherworldly Horrors.
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.

Many of the eadthdawn 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. Its purely a gut feeling, I’ll have to see how it goes with playtesting and all.
Savage Worlds has its own method savagr increasing the charecters resistance to damage, and I feel that this is an Earthdawn system feature, as opposed to an Earthdawn world feature, i.

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. Blood magic can be used by any Adept, for a workds 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. All times are GMT It is a setting I like, and one I’ve drawn ideas from many times.
There are no clerics or priests, per se, though some special devotees become Questors–champions who are imbued dree some of their Passion’s power.

Adepts have a resource called Karma, that can be spent to improve the use of talents by adding an extra die to the roll. Healing magic is rare, and precious.

You will need the Earthdawn rulebook to make sense of most of the stuff here, not to mention for world background, equipment costs and so on. 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.
Magic went away, became our Earth. 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 “exploding” dice if a die roll its maximum, roll it again and add the results. Did anyone ever play this, and how was it? Looks like a bit like a fantasy version of Fallout to me, what with the shtick about everyone hiding in underground frse for a while – and chimes nicely with some ideas I had in the past about the dungeon as civil defence shelter.
Nice ideas, but the earrthdawn IME tended to be awfully “go down a hole in the ground, kill what’s there and bring back the treasure”. Let me know what you think, especially if you’ve played it both ED and SW. Anyway, it demonstrates how strongly supported post-apocalyptic settings are, by the company and the GURPS community, here.
