A mighty barbarian leads a horde of savages against his blood-sworn foes. A crazy rebel pilots his fighter against a galactic empire. A party of adventurers raids the tomb of an ancient lich. If you like the sound of that, then start exploring the never ending of Savage Worlds.

Savage Worlds is a role-playing game and miniatures wargame. Like Dungeons and Dragons, it allows the player to create their very own fantasy characters. This also means that players starts literally nothing but just a short story given by the dungeon master. From there on, let your imagination take you where it leads. The theme maybe also varies depending on the dungeon master. Savage World focus on speed of play and does not require much preparation as this game is solely based on imagination.

An example for Dungeons and Dragons is that it uses the D20 system for skills. For Savage Worlds, the dice used are varies depending on how good is that character’s skill level. In the deluxe version, there are more new powers, setting rules, situational rules. If you’re ready, then get savage!
