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. 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. earthhdawn

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 worlde 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.

There are no clerics or priests, per se, though some special swvage become Questors–champions who are imbued with some of their Passion’s power. The time now is 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. 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 civil defence shelter.

Any edges that can be taken twice such as fleet footed, are only noted one, but you can take them twice as normal. So, if you wanted to try to run an Earthdawn game with better mechanics, I think you could do it really easily.

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.

All times are GMT Fgee magic can be used by any Adept, for a variety 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.

There are no half-races of any kind, and no inherently evil races other than the otherworldly Horrors. I also haven’t included Durability as an edge.

Its purely a gut feeling, I’ll have to see how it goes with playtesting and all. It managed to please neither Earthdawn nor Savage Worlds fans. There’s a licensed adaptation of the setting for Savage Worlds now. 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!

The system has never been a contender for most popular RPG, but it has enough fans that recently a year or so ago? Find More Posts by mehrkat.

Let me know what you think, especially if you’ve played it both ED and SW. 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. Find More Posts by thastygliax.

I’ve mined it for ideas for locations and such for a while. Savage Worlds is a brand new generic role playing game created by Pinnacle Entertainment Group; http: 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. Healing magic is rare, and precious. Adepts have a resource called Karma, that can be spent to improve the use of talents by adding an extra die to the roll.


Earthdawn’s core conceit is that each PC is an Adept, someone who can wield magic. Originally Posted by RogerBW. 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. 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.

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.

Anyway, it demonstrates how strongly supported post-apocalyptic settings are, by the company and the GURPS community, here. It was one of the earliest settings in frde magical post-apocalypse, and that got it a fair amount of attention. The worst threats are those posed by the Horrors, which are attracted to magic and seek to corrupt those they come in contact with.

It is a setting I like, and one I’ve drawn ideas from many times.

Earthdawn was actually the first tabletop RPG that my wife ever played. 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. Magic went away, became our Earth.
