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.

Earthdawn’s core conceit is that each PC is an Adept, someone who can wield magic. 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.
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, or in desperation to fuel more potent magic at great risk, of course.

That way lies madness The setting is hit or miss, but it is absolutely my favorite published rules system I have run it both straight by the book and also well house ruled. Find More Posts by Fred Brackin.
Earthdawn was actually the first tabletop RPG that my wife ever played. There are no half-races of any kind, and no inherently evil races other than the otherworldly Horrors.

Theres a huge difference, as someone remarked on the Yahoo Groups mailing list you have signed up to it, haven’t you? There’s a licensed adaptation of the setting for Savage Worlds now. I haven’t included Karma Ritual as an edge, as I think beanies use the same mechanic, and can be easily subsituted for Karma.

It is a setting I like, and one I’ve drawn ideas from many times. Many of the “standard” fantasy races can be found 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.
I think I remember it being canonically the early world that became Shadowrun. Only a few Disciplines are actually magicians spellcasters ; other Eartndawn manifest their magic by being uncannily good at fighting, or thieving, or performing, or some other calling. I’m a fan of both, and will be buying both sets of 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!
But after the initial learning curve, quirks like these become almost intuitive. Adepts have a resource called Karma, that can be spent to improve the use of talents by adding an extra die to the roll. Thumbed through it but never willing to use the original mechanics.
Magic went away, became our Earth. Its purely a gut feeling, I’ll have to see how it goes with playtesting and all. Originally Eartndawn by RogerBW Nice ideas, but the adventures IME tended to be awfully “go down savag hole in the ground, kill what’s there and bring back the treasure”.

Did anyone ever play this, and how was it? This is a conversion, not a replacement! I also haven’t included Durability as an edge. 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.
Sure, you dont get as many beanies as karma, but the Savage Worlds system allows you to do slightly more, I feel. 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. A few of the other things that make Earthdawn distinct from other games and settings are: A badly wounded character can take quite some time to heal fully, even with help.

I played in a campaign many years ago, I was playing a Windling basically a sprite Elementalist type of mage earthdaqn a “fetish” for using I think they were called blood charms a “minor” magic item that you sacrificed some of your health to empower, fre 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 I had basically linked up enough charms to bring my health down to if I got tapped I was dying.
