I didn’t back a lot of stuff from the Bones 4 kickstarter, I mostly just got the Core Set and the Wraiths set. While I would prefer less putting together of miniatures, especially you armored goblins (which were a bit of a pain). I do like a lot of the dynamic poses that having miniatures come in multiple pieces gives you.
With the new adventure edition, and the new Interface Zero 3.0 Edition being Kickstarted for it, I am seeing some ideas that I was first introduced to in various versions of Fate making their way into Savage Worlds, and I think that this is a good thing.
So today I just finished reading the new Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. In short, I think it is a great update to the system. The rules are much easier to find including such rules as firing through cover to attack someone. While I don’t see all of the rules changes as being needed, none of them seem like they will cause problems1, and many of them improve the balance of the game or are just good changes in general. So in brief I would recommend anyone who likes the Savage Worlds system to get it as soon as it becomes available, and for a more detailed reasons why, continue reading.Continue reading “Impressions from Savage Worlds Adventure Edition”

I have been reading The Yellow King RPG preview that is currently being kickstarted here. It uses the GUMSHOE1 system as its task resolution engine, and because of that I decided to back it. I have long been interested in getting a game that uses the GUMSHOE system because I wanted to see how it handled investigations seeing as how that was what the system was designed from the ground up to do. So far I have read two of the four previewed books and started the third, and I want to get some thoughts down on the game as I see it now as well as on the system as I understand it based on what I have read.
