Announcement: Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition

Pinnacle Entertainment Group recently announced the printing of Savage Worlds Deluxe, a full-size, hard-bound edition of its award winning rule set. Available this August, the 160 page book expands, clarifies, and corrects the original Savage Worlds: Explorers Edition.

Priced at $29.99, the Deluxe Edition includes:
  • Design notes from the creators
  • All new One Sheet adventures
  • Expanded Setting Rules and designer notes on how to apply them in your game
  • New Situation Rules such as Interludes and Dramatic Tasks ( i.e. bomb defusing )
  • A complete rework of the Chase Rules
  • New Spells and changes to existing Spells
  • New Social 'combat' rules for things like debates and trials
  • Errata and rule updates
The Savage Worlds Deluxe edition is completely compatible with SW:EX (see note from Shane for details). All new rules will be made available free on the Pinnacle web site within a few weeks.

Pinnacle Entertainment Group could have come out with a new edition, changed more for the rules, and slapped a 2e on the cover forcing everyone to either continue playing SW:EX or switch over to the new edition. Instead, (and this one of the reasons I love Savage Worlds and the Pinnacle Entertainment Group) they produced the hard-cover rule book many of their fans requested AND released the new rules to the web free of charge. That's one of the many reasons its our go-to system for time-crunched gaming here at The Savage Troll.
