What rulebook is needed for Rifts SaWo ?

#1 Postby ciryon » Tue May 03, 2016 4:43 pm

Hello

after coping with the idea of not having the printed edition, I have just backed the Digital GM level and I try to see the good side of it :D .

I have not the Deluxe Edition rulebook but only the Explorer Edition, does it suffice to GM Rifts or will the Deluxe book will be needed ?

Do you have the Explorer's edition or the Deluxe Explorer's Edition? The Deluxe Explorer's Edition & Deluxe Edition are the current edition (Deluxe Explorer's Edition is a more compact format of the same material). The plain Explorer's Edition is a previous edition though it is probably around 90% compatible and you could probably make due.

That's going back a little bit now. It's definitely possible to run with the pre-Deluxe rules, but you'll need to download the updates from the website, on this page...

http://www.peginc.com/product-category/savage-worlds/

And there may be references to some of the added material from Deluxe, but nothing necessary which isn't explained as far as I can recall. For example, some of the Setting Rules used from Deluxe have a short explanation on how they work.

Hope that helps.
