<t>Well, you know me - I'm a Savage Worlds guy. I've integrated a lot of Savage things into my C&C game. I think it works great for fantasy (although I think the magic system needs some tweaking).<br/> <br/> If you want to make a HP-based system (or any system, really) it a lot more deadly, just...

Another good resource is the Wilderlands boxed set. Yeah, its a bit big just to get for wilderness encounters, but its chock full of ideas, not to mention random ruins and other goodness.

<t>I'm pretty sure the Deadlands books are in the pipeline. It is their flagship product, even more than SW itself. <br/> <br/> I get the impression from the SW folks that the PDF products aren't print substitutes - that is, if they didn't produce them as PDFs, they wouldn't produce them at all.

<t>We haven't used the Way of the Brave yet, and probably won't switch in our current Savage Midnight game, but I will probably use it in whatever my next Savage campaign is.

<t>I love Savage Worlds. Have I said that before? I returned to gaming after an almost decade long hiatus, and played 3x. Took me 2 years to realize how much I hated it.

They looked like the walking wounded last night, too. Lots of injuries to the D. That isn't a good thing for a team whose success is predicated on their D.

I track XP, mainly based off monsters and story awards. A friend of mine has an ingeniously simple system for GP based XP - you get XP for each GP you spend on training. I'm going to use that in my next campaign.
