Blackwood: Setting Primer

Watermarked PDF

The Blackwood tugs at the borders of the Elder Kingdom. Too many men and women flood the cities, refugees from collapsed frontier villages. In these dark times, some answer the Call of Errantry to take up a wanderer's life on behalf of those in need. Sometimes that means looking out for oneself. Sometimes it means giving all for others.

The Blackwood is Grimm's Tales meets Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It's The Witcher series meets Kung Fu Hustle. It's Iron Monkey meets Brotherhood of the Wolf. You are errants, a class of wandering adventurers, who search a landscape of deadly beauty for a way to save the settled folk of the Elder Kingdom from ruin.

The Setting Primer is loaded with content:

  • A preview of art from The Blackwood Errantry Codex
  • A short history of life in The Blackwood
  • 3 new Arcane Backgrounds
  • 6 New Edges
  • 4 styles from the brand-new Fighting Schools Setting Rule
  • 8 new pieces of Gear and Equipment
And keep in mind... there will be more of all these things in the full setting book, The Blackwood Errantry Codex, coming to Kickstarter in May 2017!

It's a perfect companion to our other products:

Blackwood: Archetypes

Blackwood One Shot: Leafstone and Silk

Blackwood One Sheet: Tourist Season

Blackwood One Sheet: The Seven Quillcrows

Blackwood One Sheet: The King of Knuckle Peak

A copy of the Savage Worlds core rules is required to make full use of this product.

This is a nice package to introduce a campaign concept. I'm surprised they didn't reference Robin Hood in their inspirations (even more so now with the new film comin out). But this is quality presentation and quality material. The concept is original and could spark renewed interest in a fantasy campaign for groups which have become weary of the genre. Glad it uses the Savage Worlds setting. My home group and I run nothing else.

Thanks so much for the kind words, James! Funny you should mention Robin Hood: there was a *ton* of folklore inspiration we could have drawn from (and Robin Hood would have been perfect from a social standpoint, given the setting's vast inequality) but we tried to stick solely with Germanic and Chinese sources for our worldbuilding. English folklore is rich with great examples but we were trying to find under-used material.

Anyway, we're so glad you're enjoying the setting! Thanks again for the review.

I was looking forward to a primer, but this is nothing of the sort, its a bunde of previous products? Like, XXX? Is there a primer for the Blackwood setting or not? If so, where is it? If I'm missing the obvious, my apologies and please point me in the right direction....

Hi Gary! Sorry for any confusion. I just downloaded the Primer from the site to make sure nothing is amiss. You should be seeing a 10-page document with a couple pages of history and setting information, followed by a collection of new Arcane Backgrounds, Edges, Hindrances, and gear. Are you seeing something different?

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.
