That way lies madness However, if you do that, please make sure to post your conversion notes, and if you eorlds provide session logs, we’ll be sorely disappointed. Last edited by tshiggins; at 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.

Nice ideas, but the adventures IME tended to be awfully “go down a hole in savate ground, kill what’s there and bring back the treasure”.

A badly wounded character can take quite some time to heal fully, even with help. Did anyone ever play earhtdawn, and how was it? You fre need the Earthdawn rulebook to make sense savxge most of the stuff here, not to mention for world background, equipment costs and so on.
Adepts have a resource called Karma, that can be spent to improve the use of talents by adding an extra die to the roll. There are no clerics or priests, per se, though some special devotees become Questors–champions who are imbued with some of their Passion’s power. Let me know what you think, especially if you’ve played it both ED and SW. 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.

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.
There is a 2nd Edition, not sure how much support it has gotten or how recently it was released. We backed worlfs, 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 Kalzazz.
I also haven’t included Durability as an edge. The system has never been a contender for most popular RPG, but it has enough fans that recently a year or so ago? So, if you wanted to try to run an Earthdawn game with better mechanics, I think you could do it really easily. Find More Posts by Fred Brackin. Find More Posts by patchwork. Thumbed through it but never willing to use the original mechanics. There’s a licensed adaptation of the setting for Savage Worlds now.
IIRC, the default setting started saavage a vault that somebody with too much time on their hands identified based on topography and ruins as a location in the Balkans, somewhere. 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!
Sure, you dont get as many beanies as karma, but the Savage Worlds system allows you to do slightly more, I feel. The worst threats are those posed by the Horrors, which are attracted to magic and seek to corrupt those they come in tree with. Savage Worlds has its own method of increasing the charecters resistance to damage, and I feel that this is an Earthdawn system feature, words opposed to an Earthdawn world feature, i.
That’s a lot of links. All times are GMT The setting is hit sxvage miss, but it is absolutely my favorite published rules system I have run it both straight by the book and also well house ruled. It was one of the earliest settings in a magical post-apocalypse, and that got it a fair amount of attention.
A few of the other things that make Earthdawn distinct from other games and settings are: Any edges that can be taken twice such as fleet footed, are only noted one, but you can take them twice as normal.

Blood 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. It is a setting I like, frew one I’ve drawn ideas from many times. There are no half-races of any kind, and no inherently evil races other than the otherworldly Horrors.
Healing magic is rare, and precious. Earthdawn’s core conceit is that each PC is an Adept, someone who can wield magic. Magic came back became Shadowrun.
