This is a short piece that covers my thoughts about Over the Edge. It took me longer than I would have liked to read this, in part because I was spending extra time painting and preparing for a Deadlands Adventure Edition game. The short and to the point statement is that while it has some interesting ideas that I fully intend to lift for other things, it is not a system or setting for me.
This is a book of short essays related to the Savage Worlds in general and the new Adventure Edition in particular. Some of these were more interesting to me than others, but all have value.
This book was part of the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition kickstarter and includes four mini or sample settings for use with the new rules. Each being radically different from the others and each displaying some aspect of the new rules.
I got this book as part of the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition kickstarter. It was an interesting read especially since this is one of the wars that I know the least about. It was not very well covered when I went to school, maybe that has changed in the twenty years or so since I was last in a history class. I found what I read in this book interesting, and that combined with what I learned in the PBS Vietnam War series that I have not had a chance to finish yet, made this something that I would like to learn more about.

It was an interesting and quick read being one of the older Savage Worlds settings. In fact it is one of the oldest two setting books, and in some ways it shows.

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”
So yesterday I finished reading the Freedom Squadrons Plans & Operations Manual and I thought I would write-up some of my thoughts on it. Continue reading “Impressions of Freedom Squadron Plans & Operations Manual”
