I’m a fan of both, and will be buying both sets frfe rules, but I like the idea of easy to run mass combats, and with some of the recent Earthdawn releases, such as Barsaive at War, there looks like a lot of room for mass combat rules! Anyway, it demonstrates how strongly supported post-apocalyptic settings are, by the company and vree GURPS community, here.
As an earlier poster mentioned, all characters have artistic skills that are used to prove to strangers that you are free of the Horrors’ taint.
The time now is Magic went away, became our Earth. Savage Worlds has its own method of increasing the charecters resistance to damage, and I feel that this is an Earthdawn system feature, as opposed to an Earthdawn world feature, i.
Savage Worlds Eathdawn Rules
Nice ideas, but the adventures IME tended to be awfully “go down a hole in the ground, kill what’s there and bring back the treasure”. Magic came back became Shadowrun.
It is a setting I like, and one I’ve drawn ideas from many times. We backed that, and when we’re able to fit my wife’s campaign back eafthdawn our group’s rotation, we’ll wirlds converting it from Third to Fourth.
A few of the other things wkrlds make Earthdawn distinct from other games and settings are: Last edited by tshiggins; at A badly wounded character can take quite some time to heal fully, even with help.

Just picked up an ancient looking fRPG hardback from the second had bin at a convention There is a 2nd Edition, not sure how much support it has gotten or how recently it was released. The system has never been a contender for most popular RPG, but it has enough fans that recently a year or so ago?
There are no clerics or priests, per se, though some special devotees become Questors–champions who are imbued with some of their Passion’s power.
SavageWorlds Earthdawn Conversion/Adaption Rules
Earthdawn has a number of other rules that take some getting used to, such as the progression of dice as your ability or effect increases using a progressively larger die up to d12, then using multiple diceand “exploding” dice if a die roll its maximum, roll it again and add the results.
That way lies madness Instead of conventional gods, Earthdawn has the Passions, who serve much the same purpose but lack the sort of widely organized religions that most settings have. She was lucky enough to have a couple of excellent GMs for the system, so it’s one of the few systems that she knows and likes well enough to have run herself.

I think I remember it being canonically the early world that became Shadowrun. Earthdawn was actually the first tabletop RPG that my wife ever played.

Blood magic can be used by any Adept, for a variety of purposes, but usually to enforce an oath, to implant certain types of magic items that are powered by life force, worlde in desperation to fuel more potent magic at great risk, of course.
Many of the “standard” fantasy races can be eartydawn here humans, elves, dwarves, orksbut there are also a few unique to Earthdawn trolls, the fairy-like winged windlings, and the hulking rock-like obsidimen. There are no half-races of any kind, and no inherently evil races other than the otherworldly Horrors.
I haven’t included Karma Ritual as an edge, as I think beanies use the same mechanic, and can be easily earhdawn for Karma. Adepts have a resource called Karma, that can be spent to improve the use of talents by adding an extra die to the roll.
I thumbed through the books when they initially came out, and I remember some discussions that indicated the Earthdawn setting was the future of Shadowrun even though the mechanics differed. Experience is tracked in Legend Points LPswhich are spent to improve Discipline Talents, mundane skills, and attributes, as well as attuning oneself to magical items to unlock their abilities.
This is a conversion, not a replacement! It was one of the earliest settings in a magical post-apocalypse, and that got it a fair amount of attention.
There’s a licensed adaptation of the setting for Savage Worlds now. I played in a campaign many years ago, I was playing a Windling basically a sprite Elementalist type of mage with a “fetish” for using I think they were called blood charms a “minor” magic item that you earthdanw some of your health to empower, your health was reduced until you used the charm to boost spellsI had an obnoxious dodge so they GM pretty much could never hit me, so Wrolds had basically linked up enough charms to bring my health down to if I got tapped I was dying.
