I haven't purchased this setting yet, but I seriously consider it. So the question is: Is the content of Resurrected edition converted to SWADE as it was done with B&B (I hope I remember correctly, still haven't had a change to run proper campaign there)?

Rippers resurrected has SWADE and SWD modules.

Have these not been posted to the store yet? Everything I see is rules/books released a few years ago that say they require SWD to run. I know many things will 'upconvert', but past experience with War of the Dead and Deadlands left quite a bit to be desired.

The store is never updated when SWADE versions are added :(

The new Rippers Products are SWADE so the ruleset needs to be as well :)

Good idea to keep things in one place. :)

I don't want to add more work to FG developers/converters... However, I find the only way that the store description will change is if the converter/developer of the product writes to the SmiteWorks production manager and asks for changes to the store page.

Stupid question, but what has been updated? I can't see anything different :)

Has anyone else ever noticed that in The Rippers GM Handbook that the 5th chapter of the plot point campaign "An Old Acquaintance", just ends abruptly before you get to enter Dracula's castle??? Maybe mine is messed up somehow or I'm doing something wrong. But it deffo is incomplete for me

It is missing the end :s

That said the whole SWADE conversion I did seems to have gone (from my hard drive), so looks like I'm doing that again :(

I can check my paperback version of the Rippers Resurrected GM Handbook later on and give report regarding the correct ending of chapter 5.

Another bidding, today I read, that some of the SW Settings were splitted into Setting and Theme. Is it also possible to split the Rippers Setting and Theme, to use the Rippers Setting with other Desktop Themes?

Oh I know how it ends as I have the books (which I hurriedly dug out)... I thought I should report it though as it was a bit of a pain for me to deal with (I was worried I had a buggy download from Steam or something). Luckily I found Castle Dracula Castle map in the images section. So that helped.

I have found a couple of problems with the lodges in Rippers resurrected.
I'm running FGU with SWADE and the Rippers Resurrected ruleset - no other extensions.

First of all, the "Lodge Table" from page 35 in the RR players' handbook is missing in FG. This makes the modifiers rule really confusing, even though the lodge record updates the modifier field as the lodge gains levels.

Also, adding a facility or edge to a lodge causes the following error:

Script execution error: [string "charsheet/scripts/charsheet_ability.lua"]:32: attempt to call field 'getActorShortcut' (a nil value)

The facilities and edges are added, and automation (e.g. for "purpose built") works, but the error message is annoying.

Hi, I have to ask again, because my first request came to nothing:

Is it maybe possible to use the Gothic Desktop Theme (or any other SW compatible Theme) with the Rippers Resurrected Setting without loading the Rippers Resurrected Desktop Theme as well? (strictly speaking split the original theme and setting).
At the first look all is perfect and the Gothic Theme seems to fit, but on closer inspection there are some small issues with the Theme, like missing the chat input field.

Thanks in advance :)

The Theme and Setting will be split when I redo the SWADE update. (this will work for both SWADE and SWD)

Ok, thank you for the reply. The Theme works to some extend, so it's not that bad. :)
