    Sorry, missed this. We're using 5th. I bought the Players - gotta say, I'm liking 5th so far.

    I've started constructing a real campaign world. Kind of a post-Medieval world where civilization is beginning to look civilized and adventuring for fun and profit is on the wane.

    5e, eh? I really don't LOVE IT or HATE IT like some folks do, but I won't turn down a game someone's running just because it's 5th Edition.

    Cool!

    ... Meanwhile, I'm statting up tonnes of NPCs for my Doomsdays & Death Races game and finishing up some homebrew before the campaign starts in two weeks. I'm glad Savage Worlds is so easy to work with, otherwise I wouldn't be making this as Sandboxy as I am.

    It's not awesome - still has some of the stuff I don't really like like challenge rankings but there aren't any really nasty spots so far. I thought I'd hate the spell section but it is actually an improvement on the old organization by class.

    Yeah, I'd forgotten how much of a pain prepping NPCs can be. Right now I'm more focused on having encounters prepped - 1st level needs xp more than anything but they also need a good learning environment both to master the system, and role playing. We have three relative novices... And it sounds like you need more cannon fodder than I do.

    Did get the new Monster Manual - DMG is gonna have to wait another month.

    I've yet to play a Spellcaster in 5e. I think the last character I played was a Dragonborn Monk whose fighting style resembled dancing.

    Savage Worlds does, "Level-Ups" differently in the form of "Advances" and "Rank". In the newest Edition, the GM awards Advances based on adventures completed (or about 2-3 Sessions on average), and every four Advances means you go up a Rank (Novice -> Seasoned -> Veteran -> Heroic -> Legendary), which opens up more options for Edges (their term for Feats) and- if Arcane Backgrounds are allowed- new Powers the PCs can take.

    ... and I don't want to put TOO much cannon fodder in the way. As they say, "Savage Worlds Happens"... All it takes is a lucky villager with a pitchfork and a very unlucky player to require someone to Roll up a new Character. Besides, it's more fun to watch players dig their own graves with dumb in-character decisions.

    So, I may or may not have been roped into running Deadlands Noir on Saturday evenings. The Sunday GM vanished for almost a month after Session 0, so I was asked if I'd be interested in running on a day I was able to.
