What is Savage Worlds?

Savage Worlds is a generic role-playing game system published by Pinnacle Entertainment Group.  It emphasizes speed of play and reduced preparation to support a Fast! Furious! Fun! playstyle.  The rules are streamlined to the point of simple elegance and function with a clockwork-like precision.

A nominal investment of $9.99 for the core rulebook is all you need for game play in any genre you can imagine.  In addition to the core rules, Pinnacle and its licensees published genre supplements referred to as Settings.  Savage Worlds Settings are complete campaign worlds featuring a familiar genre with an added twist of supernatural horror.
