Savage Rifts® X Fairy Tail: Erza Scarlet




Sorry, folks. Robin already called Erza for the Chupacabracon game.

This isn't really a street legal Savage Rifts® version of Erza, but it's close. The big (BIG) deviation is that she hasn't bought the New Power Edge a dozen times; I'm assuming that Fairy Tail is set in a fantasy world with similar rules to the Savage Worlds Fantasy Companion, which allows spellcasters to learn spells from scrolls rather than buying the New Power Edge every time. If I didn't do that, she'd have to have something like 200 experience points to have anywhere near the number of powers she has in the manga and anime. Aside from the powers, though, everything else is paid for with experience or character creation points, accounting for why she's not quite as badass as she should be. I have to impose some limits somewhere.

(We'll have to assume she gets a situational bonus when intimidating Gray, Natsu, and the ghosts of her dead enemies.)

  1. If one were to have a straight out Fairy Tail Savage setting, I personally believe that the Super Powers Companion would be a better fit overall. In the case of Erza, I'd say she would have Armor, Attack (Melee), and some levels in Super Sorcery to reflect her requips.

    1. Consider this an experiment in coming up with an approach that requires tracking Magic Power/ethernano/ki/mana/Power Points the way is so ubiquitous in anime and manga. :)

Review: Anno Dracula—One Thousand Monsters

Well, that was weird. I jest, but Anno Dracula—One Thousand Monsters is not the book I was expecting, presenting strange and twist...
