    Savage Worlds updates in Test channel

    I'll let Ikael post more details when he's online; but the latest major revision of the Savage Worlds system is now in the Test channel.

    Please note that these changes will impact your existing campaigns. Ikael has added a pop-up dialog to let you choose to migrate to SWADE or not. It is not suggested to change between versions on the same campaign, as you may run into issues.

    It is suggested as always to save off your existing campaigns, just in case.

    Regards,

    Welcome to SWADE beta-testing

    Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (SWADE) ruleset is now available in Test channel! If you already own Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition ruleset you can join in beta-testing SWADE ruleset by switching Fantasy Grounds to Test channel and running the updater. After the update you can find two rulesets: SavageWorlds and SWD. SWD ruleset is your familiar Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition rules with lots of new features and improvements (see more below). If you use the SavageWorlds ruleset, you are playing with new and awesome SWADE rules!

    When launching existing campaign with this update you are given dialogue option to switch using SWADE ruleset or keep using SWD. The dialogue option is given only once, but if you skipped it you can switch to SWADE by using slash command /swade in your campaign.

    Report any bugs and other issues to this thread!

    Good to know
    • SWADE modules are not available yet. If you are Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition ruleset owner you have access to the new SWADE ruleset but will need to purchase SWADE modules when they are ready. Meanwhile you can still use the new ruleset, load up Deluxe Edition and any other existing Savage Worlds modules and have fun. Reference to SWADE PDF for rule changes!
    • SWADE theme is not available yet.

    I got it to update, but am struggling to figure out how to edit the character traits in the character sheet.

    (nvm) right click, ASSIGN.

    Question about Hindrances

    I add two major hindrances, yet it only shows minor?

  7. #7
    Awesome work, as usual!

    Few things I got when trying it out:
    Encumbered is written "Encumbrered" on Effect list
    [SavageWorlds] Hesitant Hindrance Action Card rule implemented <- Sometimes won't work when drawing Jokers. It will pick the lowest card instead of joker making it possible for the CT to run out of cards because the joker was discarded.
    [SWADE] Hard to Kill Edge rule implemented <- Didn't work for me (it used to, on SWD. Maybe the Hindrance on the official SWADE module will?). Also Bleeding Out auto-rolls on the turns after don't seem to be working anymore.
    [SavageWorlds] CT Effect Tab-autocomplete support added <- Some anomalies when having [#stunned]. When auto-rolls for stun recovery, it will add another stun effect instead of removing it. Otherwise, works great.

    Now a few things I couldn't test because I wasn't sure about:
    [SavageWorlds] Dropping Edges, Hindrances and Abilities to PC sheet add modifiers to stats -> How does that work? I've seen your videos on this working, but how do I create a custom Edge that will add to Parry, for example?
    Brave Edge rule implemented and [SavageWorlds] Yellow Hindrance rule implemented <- Not sure how to do Fear checks, or how that's implemented.
    [SavageWorlds] Anemic Hindrance rule implemented <- Not sure how to do Fatigue Rolls, or how that's implemented.

    Few other things I noticed:
    - Character summary won't count a second Major hindrance points (I know, nobody cares)
    - Completely not sure about this, but Powers have no Damage field. Powers from the SWD module will have the damage added correctly, but if I am to create a new power there is no field to add Damage and I have to change it manually later on.
    - I only noticed this now, never tested beforehand so it possibly isn't just a new SWADE thing: When handing a parcel directly to a player, not using the party sheet but by holding Alt and dropping it to his portrait, every item will be added to it's inventory but weapons and armors will be added to Mundane Items.

    So far so great, had it tested in about an hour but still have to put it to test through some games with real players. Keep rocking, Ikael!

    According to SWADE rules Hard to Kill removed Wound penalties from Bleeding Out, not from Incapacitation roll. Also Bleeding Out is rolled on character's turn, not in start of round like in SWD. I tested these and they worked as expected.

    I will add data to SWD modules to allow testing these out.

    I will add add slash command to allow you rolling these.

    Right click on Power and select "Attack info". There you can input the data.

    Other topics, are mostly fixed and will be part of next update. Thanks for the excellent testing!

    Seems like this has been around for a while and it is because CoreRPG has only single item list while SavageWorlds has multiple. I will ignore this for now, and check later if SavageWorlds can override CoreRPG's ItemManager.sendItemTransfer to support target list item by item instead. Initial thoughts, John?
