SW Deluxe Explorer's Edition

Hi

Just wanted to scream from the rooftops how freakin' beautiful the new Explorer's Edition book is. Seriously, this little gem is amazing. Picked it up in London today and I am VERY happy with my purchase. Great work by all involved.

Agreed! It's a gorgeous book, I picked up 5 copies of it today from my FLGS.

Is it the same type of book (in terms of paper, binding etc) as the original SWEX? Would like to hear how it stands up to use as for some reason my SWEX fell apart within weeks of me getting it.

Presumably you got the second printing, which reported an unusually high number of defective copies. IIRC they changed the binding method that was being used after that.

They also had a good replacement policy for customers that got in touch with them.

I suspect that the SWD:EE is of similar quality to the Horror Companion - which is amazing.

Excellent, thanks all. Even though my SWEX is in bits, it's still probably the single best product I've bought in 30 years of gaming. And all because of a chance encounter in a FLGS which I visited on a whim and sadly doesn't even exist any more.

If possible, take your old copy to your local Kinko's and have them spiral bind it (since it's already messed up). This way, it statys together and it will lay flat if needed (I did that with my EE copy as soon as I got it, best +$8 bucks I ever spent on Savage Worlds, and I intend to do that with my Deluxe EE copy as soon as my FLGS get some more in...

Well, it's early days so i can't speak as to the longevity of the binding. If anything, i would say the book is of even better quality than the previous Explorers Edition.
