    Cool Going to learn and run SWADE for real this time!

    Ok, I'm ready to take the SW plunge and need some guidance on the best videos, etc that will get me up to speed on the basics for running a game. Obviously I'll learn most of the system as I go along but need an idea of what to focus on to get things off the ground the quickest.

    I presume you ask for ruleset-related information, as it needs some learning to play in the most optimal way. Because in order to learn SWADE... you have to read the rulebook, there is no shortcut there.


    The ruleset documentation is quite old (both the PDF and the Wiki, but worth reading), so the most up-to-date videos are from Dave on FG channel:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgakahrfw-k
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwUZ-I2Nc7U

    Another good source is this from Doswelk, in addition to the other good stuff there:

    Also let's not forget this: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...Grounds-Videos
    The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

    I will second Doswelk's videos. You might also try to get in some of his Savage Saturday one shots.

    And/or my Savage Friday one shots.

    Florian has put together a great series of introductory videos about SWADE and Fantasy Grounds as well.

    And if you haven't yet, join us over in the Fantasy Grounds College Discord where I try to run at least one, sometimes two, Savage Worlds one shots a month.

    Thanks. Some of those links I was aware of, checking out those I didn't know about.

    I have a Flash Gordon game today at 2pm UTC, you can watch the stream or jump on (I think I have 1 slot left).
    My players just defeated an army, had a dogfight with aliens, machine-gunned the zombies, stormed the tower, became Legendary and died heroically

    Yours are still on combat round 6

    Thanks Doswelk. That's 8AM for me and so I missed your post and the session start. I'll jump in on Twitch for a little bit have some errands to run later this morning so might have to bail out at some point.
    BTW, I've also been watching the other sessions you already posted. Good stuff and definitely helpful!

    Unfortunately, his games are 8AM for me and that's a bad time. Right now, about the best I can do is try and watch the twitch stream on my phone with no access to FG. That might change after the 1st of the year though so here's hoping.
