So, I’ve decided to run a Savage Worlds game (finally convinced my regular D&D group to give it a shot) though I’ve never even played the system before. Fantasy Grounds is our VTT of choice however, the setting that caught my attention, “All for One: Régime Diabolique”, doesn’t have a Fantasy Grounds module available for the 2nd Edition. Soooo, I decided to create one, for my personal use. Actually 2, a GM and Player module and even though they are far from complete, I’m certainly making progress.Read More
So I have decided to get back into designing some RPG content, in this case for Savage Worlds. Actually, it’s just creating a Fantasy Grounds module for use with their Savage Worlds ruleset of an already existing setting. I recently came across the “All for One: Régime Diabolique” setting from Triple Ace Games and thought it might be nice to GM a few sessions for my current D&D 5E group to mix things up and get them interested in the Savage Worlds RPG system.
To give an idea of the setting, it’s sort of like The Three Musketeers but with a supernatural element. An overview is posted below;
“The year is 1636 and France is a troubled nation. A great and terrible evil gnaws at its core, and darkness stalks the land. All that stands between chaos and order are the King’s Musketeers...
Samples of my ‘Savage Hârn’ weapons, armor and mundane items lists. I’m using HârnMaster 3 as the foundation and trying to stick to the items available in the HârnWorld Module. Still have lots to do, this is only a small portion of my work so far.Read More
Wow, who knew there was something like this already out there! This may save me a lot of time tweaking my Savage Harn.

I have been having this urge to really try out Savage Worlds using Fantasy Grounds but for the setting I keep gravitating back to Hârn. There is an older conversion out there that was started but I am seriously thinking of building out my own Savage Worlds pHârn.
Basically, what I am contemplating is running a Savage Worlds game set on the island of Hârn where that island and setting are basically transplanted to the planet of Krynn. The rest of Krynn has fallen to the Evil forces and now the Dragonlance events are finally encroaching on that remote and small part of the world.
Stay posted.Read More
Here are the Strike Location tables for each of the Aiming Zones. If you hit, you choose the table where you’re aiming and click the Roll Icon. The tables do the rest to determine the exact location and output it to the chat window.Read More
Ok, so I made some crude tables for Strike Locations. What this does is allow the player or GM to choose the appropriate Aiming Zone table and roll 1d100. You only need to click the Die Icon (under Roll on the AIMING ZONE MID Table) once, so one roll as opposed to multiple rolls and looking up of each result, then relaying the player or GM. That starts the sequence to determine the full hit location. The Strike Location is determined and then, if there is a related subtable, such as a hit to the Face or something needing to determine if it was the Left or Right side, the system rolls on the next appropriate subtable. If the result shows a Grey Circle with Red Star, it moves to the appropriate subtable and continues to roll for more details as needed...Read More
Fantasy Grounds has a revised ‘MoreCore Ruleset’ that has been redesigned enough that it looks like it can be tweaked and used for HarnMaster now. Here is ‘Peri the Lame’ from Friends, Foes & Followers – Part 12 rolling some Stealth skill checks.
As I put some things together for testing I’ll try to post other screenshots and more information.
The Peoni Church manages almost all orphanages on Harn. At some point you were all taken in by the local Peoni Church as orphans at a very young age (most between 3-5 years old) and cared for by the Irreproachable Order (Male Clerical Order of Peoni). During that time and at a very young age (most between 3-5 years old) you were identified by representatives of a small militant sect of the Peoni Church based in western Kanday as being “special”. Having been singled out, members of this group arranged for you to be transferred to and “adopted” to be raised/trained as priests at their temple located in Ryce with the local church headquartered in Dunir. However the priest at the local temple in Ryce had other intentions. This small Peoni sect are not adherents to all of the peaceful teachings of Peoni. Instead they have taken a more militant position and interpret the position of Belsirasin “known as the Weeping Warrior” to be more aggressive. They are not so fond of the Peoni Church having to rely on the protection of the Church of Larani and feel they should have their own soldiers. However they also know that these actions and attitude would likely get them all reprimanded if not excommunicated even with the Peoni penchant of forgiveness. For that reason the real training has been kept out of sight and well secreted. Although you have been well trained in the teachings of Peoni (as part of your cover) and are very knowledgeable acolytes you have also had other militaristic training. Only a few of the priests at Ryce and your other trainers know the true story.Read More
For this pHârn I plan to redo most of the D&D 5e classes to better match Hârn. For example, the Paladin will only be available to followers of Larani and will be associated with the Order of the Checkered Shield or The Lady of the Paladins Fighting Orders. However, there will be an ‘Anti-Paladin’ type subclass known as ‘Blackguard’ that will be available to the followers of Agrik and associated with his Fighting Orders. At this point I am envisioning the following classes;Read More
