" the dawn of the Age of Gorgons, the great continent was torn asunder and in place of its once earthy heart was naught but the endless sea. There arose Men, the grand-children of the gods, and Fate would set there hands to many grreat and terrible things..."

Step into a world of heroic sword-and-sorcery, a realm that never was but always should have been. Here there are barbarous warriors, grim knights, remorseless mercenaries, daring thieves, mysterious priests, power-hungry sorcerers, and corrupt nobles. Darker things, too, tread the world, gorgons and demons and the last of the great dragons.

Savage Kingdoms: Reforged is an updated and full-color edition of the original indie SK game system published in August of 2014. With streamlined rules and clearer layout, one can easily create virtually any kind of hero within the context of the inspired and detailed setting. A single-die mechanic allows for swifter and more visceral game-play, enabling players and game-masters to focus more on narrative storytelling. Build your hero today and start exploring the Savage Kingdoms!

Played for the first time 2 days ago... totally hooked. Bought the book yesterday (hard copy is so sexy and in color), and twitching like a crazed smack-head itchin for a another dose. gotta have more. If you would rather truly RP instead of crunch numbers, this game is for you. huzzah to Mike Yow for developing this amazing story driven RP adventure.

Thanks so much, Eric! Glad you're enjoying one of the primary goals of the game's design - more immersive, story-driven roleplaying. Onward! =)

Hi all! We're currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign for the Savage Bestiary: Reforged, in an attempt to bring to life a full-color version of it with original art. So, if you all get the chance, check it out here and, if at all possible, chip in a bit. Many thanks!

Big fan of the original , one of the few Indy games I was willing to buy a hardcore book for. So looking forward to getting this when I can afford it as well.

Thanks Brian R., glad you've enjoyed! Please snag it if you can - I don't think you'll be disappointed. Also, we're currently doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough funds for a full-color version of the Savage Bestiary: Reforged, so check it out if you get the chance. Thanks again!

Picked this up as the deal of the day for $4.97. This book is a beast; I've not made it through much of the 476 DENSE pages yet. That said, the modern design and typesetting is one of the best I've seen offered at DTRPG (in over 1,200 purchases). This is a monster file at 161MB and seems to be worth every byte.

Any alternate sites I can get a copy of this from? I've ordered from this site before and have yet to receive an undamaged book...

Hi William!

As for now, this is the only site through which the book can be purchased. However, after, so far, around two dozen orders, there have been no complaints regarding damages, including five or six that I've personally investigated in detail. One book, however (one of the first proofs), did have a loose page, but apart from that, no damages or disfigurements thus far.

It should be available via Amazon in, say, the next month or so if I can get things reasonably worked out/set-up through them. Thanks for your interest and hope you get the book and play along with us! =)

OK, from what I gather, this includes the core rulebook and the East, but not the bestiary. Is that being updated too, or should folks go ahead and buy it?

Per discussions on the Kickstarter, the bestiary will be updated.

Hi Curt! Aye, the new Savage Kingdoms: Reforged core rulebook, not only sees the rules system a bit more streamlined, but yes, includes both the core book and The Savage East campaign setting expansion from the original line. The 'Reforged' version of the Savage Bestiary will be its own product. Thanks!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
