Title: Savage Worlds Adventure Edition on Kickstarter
Post by: Double Deuce on October 16, 2018, 04:53:05 PM
For anyone that plays or is interested in Savage Worlds, the new version was launched on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/545820095/savage-worlds-adventure-edition) today.

I like SW but sweet baby jesus raptor! 

$50 for a 192 page core book?  Too pricey for my backing.  I'll just wait until they're going for 60% of that price after retail release.   :-" 

Besides.. most of the themes they announced are the same ones they already have.  I kinda feel bad for those who pumped the big money into the Savage Worlds Rifts version a couple-three years ago, as it looks like that one is getting a rehash.  Short shelf life, there.   #:-)

Dunno.. did PEG ever really need overpriced Kickstarters to publish the current version of SW?  My *sigh* reaction is at elevated levels.  Got the feeling this is one of the bad sides of KS.

No worries. I have had the original paperback for many years now and only spent $10 for that so my investment has been really minimal so far. I'm guessing most of the 'backers' are long time supporters looking to finally get a good quality hardback as well as support Shane and the gang. I know I won't be going all in, no need for all the extras, at least for me, but the hardback is a definite want, that and the World Builder's Guide.

Maybe it'll finally entice me to put my Fantasy Grounds copy of SW to work instead of just thinking about  doing it.  :coolsmiley:
