Modern Traps and Obstacles


A common problem in modern games is a group of players deciding to break into a facility when there was absolutely no reason for the GM to prepare a facility in the first place. Luckily, Savage Worlds provides a great mechanic to improvise such a break-in at short notice, the Dramatic Task. Modern Traps and Obstacles provides an easy-to-use addition to the Dramatic Task system, supporting the GM with a simple way to generate traps, obstacles, and opposition, and thus making the narrative more sophisticated and fun! It also includes fast optional rules for a Legwork Phase, allowing the heroes to prepare for the break-in if time permits.

This product requires a copy of Savage Worlds Adventure Edition to use.

So if we don't have a deck with suited Jokers and don't want to mark up our deck, should we just play the Black & White Joker as Spades/Clubs and the Coloured Joker as Hearts/Diamonds?

Whatever works for the decks you use and is easiest to remember at your table, really. :)

Could you upload a printer/toner friendly version, or (better yet) enable layers so the background can be disabled.

Also, I have a question regarding the Jokers. On the back page you have suites associated with what to do, but Jokes don't have suites, so how does that work?

Sadly my layout process does not support layers. PF version added. :)
Some decks have four suited jokers! :) For example, the official Sprawlrunners Deck! But also all the Countdown Decks by Zadmar do. :)

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.
