Furious MagicClick to magnify

Magic in Savage Worlds depends on Power Points. The core book provides the alternative No Power Points Setting Rule, yet that still relies on the underlying structure of Power Point cost and makes upper Rank powers highly unreliable in use.
Furious Magic is built from the ground up to provide magic use with no reliance on or reference to Power Point cost. Basic spellcasting stays fast and reliable, while Power Modifiers bring difficulty and the potential of consequences for using more powerful magic. In Furious Magic, spellcasters can choose between easy casting of basic spells or risking higher chances of failure and Backlash for additional effects. In the same spirit, duration of powers works differently and becomes a conscious choice between short use of duration powers or the benefit of long-running powers at a price. This leads to an overall increase in power (pun intended) of arcane heroes and we highly recommend setting-specific limitations like restricted power and Power Modifier lists for each Arcane Background.

This is a truly great alternate magic system. Not complicated at all, and it gives that epic yet dangerous feeling of magic. I also like that the Arcane Backgrounds actually feel distinct at last. I would use this system in any high fantasy game any ti [...]

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.
