Savage Worlds

Characters find fast, furious action in any kind of setting!

Jump into adventure as an explorer, soldier, thief, magician, pilot, superhero – anything you can imagine!


Savage Worlds focuses on easy character creation, combat that can scale from a bar-room brawl to a war between nations, and a fast-moving pulp-style feel. The game is well-suited to cinematic, heroic adventure.

It can be used for one-offs or campaign play, and there are many genre, setting and adventure books available.

Here’s how publisher Pinnacle Entertainment Group describes Savage Worlds:

Savage Worlds has everything you need to play narrative or miniature-based games, with quick, simple, yet comprehensive rules for everything from combat to Dramatic Tasks, Chases, and Interludes.

What Fans Love About Savage Worlds

  • A wide variety of published settings – Pinnacle has published many setting books, and third-party settings for Savage Worlds abound.
  • Proficiency advances by dice type – Rather than adding a trait or skill rating to a roll, the rating is the type of die used in the roll; a novice shooter would roll a d4, while a sharpshooter might roll a d10.
  • Fast and flexible combat – Designed for use with miniatures, but playable without them, the combat rules focus on quick resolution and easy situation tracking for even large group situations.


  • “Overall, we’re really impressed with the changes to Savage Worlds, and recommend it highly to anyone looking at getting into role-playing games, or to those of you who are looking for a fast, fun, and reliable RPG system that can fit any mold.”Leigh Kade, Bleeding Cool
  • “Savage Worlds Adventure Edition is a very comprehensive, very accessible, detailed but fast toolkit RPG suitable to run games in almost any setting/genre with just the core rulebook.”Skaye, The Tabletop Almanac
