Savage Worlds Mini Settings SWADE

(1/2) > >>

GeekyBugle:
This is my review of the book Savage Worlds Mini Settings from Pinnacle.

Some interesting bits, the settings are a bit sparse (to be expected when you cram 4 settings in 48 pages).

Way too much attention is spent on the art and not enough on the formatting of the product.

I'll explain myself: They used text boxes to formatt it (either in LaTex or some other software), and they overlap constantly leaving you to guess (or cheat by copying the text into a word processor document) as to what is written.

For 48 pages you pay $7.00 US, not cheap and to get that kind of issues? I would expect them from a noob small publisher not from one of the big boys.

Well, never buying ANYTHING from Pinnacle ever again.

Ocule:
Yeah that book should’ve been free. It’s basically an advertisement for future projects

Page number reference? I'm not seeing that.

If it's a pdf, it could be an issue of what reader GB is using.

Corolinth:
It's possible. However, a different poster raised a similar complaint about the SWADE fantasy companion. It's possible they're using the same viewer. It's also possible that both individuals are more particular about book formatting and layout than I am.
