The new world is the last refuge of humanity, though it is one of untamed wilderness that has been changed by some supernatural force. Both the north and south continents, the Auroras, have grown over the bones of an ancient civilization that now lies in ruin, but this was not always so. They were once home to the Architects, masters of construction, and of the machinery and magic of the old world. At least, they were before The Bleed. According to the natives, the Pale — the place where all magic originates, and where people’s spirits once journeyed after death — bled into the mortal realm thousands of years ago, changing both forever.

Now is a time of antiheroes: bounty hunters, tomb robbers, vigilante drifters, and soldiers of fortune all trying to survive on a dangerous frontier that has yet to be charted, tamed, or even understood. To follow the path of adventure is to accept a life of desperation, never knowing what the next job will be, or where the next meal will come from.

Vermilium is a western-inspired, dark fantasy RPG setting for the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. Explore a world of humans, elves, dwarves, halflings, sasquatch, clockworks, and monsters, built over the ruins of a long-forgotten industrial revolution, all scarred by magic. Delve into crumbling factory complexes; hunt dangerous bounties, terrifying monsters, and ancient artifacts; and harvest supernatural components to craft and concoct weird and wonderful remedies, weapons, and even new items of power to aid you in your adventures. You’re going to need them. All this and more awaits you in Vermilium as you take on the roles of antiheroes in a gilded, morally gray world of magic, machines, and manifest destiny.

Vermilium comes from humble beginnings at the gaming tables of my friends and I, where it organically grew as we played in it for many years. Since the campaign came to its epic conclusion in 2021, I released a number of award-winning adventures and character archetypes through the Savage Worlds Adventurer’s Guild, based on the stories we told. Now, the world of Vermilium has been given life beyond our tables as we pass you the torch and invite you to answer the call to adventure!


  • Gazetteers for players and game masters detailing Vermilium’s many regions, factions, myths, and legends.
  • 7 Bloodlines to play as, as well as rules for antiheroes with multiple bloodlines for creating truly unique characters.
  • 60 Edges and Hindrances.
  • New Setting Rules for hunting and gathering creature components and magical ingredients; crafting items and artifacts; and playing antiheroes.
  • Rules for crafting adventures and encounters, as well as plenty of adventure hooks and inspiration.
  • Rules for magical contraband and artifacts, and guidelines for navigating the treacherous black markets.
  • A formidable bestiary with nearly 100 profiles.

If you would like to get a feel for the setting before you pay for the book, try out the free Jumpstart! It gives you a taste of the lore, some options for character creation, and a full adventure complete with four pregenerated characters taken from the Rogues Gallery.

I was part of the KS and did not regret it a bit. One of the best SW Settings out there. Gorgeous art and sparkling with imagination.
The only sour thing is that this screams for more. This world is so vast and deep, but just one book alone can't handle this richness.
I really hope for more.

A very unique, fairly dark, non-Tolkienesque spin on Fantasy with layers of Steampunk and horror. I love it!

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.
