I have been running role playing games now for about 4 or 5 years, and my system of choice by far is Savage Worlds. I've played in and run games using a number of others, but none I have used so far clicks quite so well. I enjoy running games far more than I do playing in them, and my greatest experience so far has been a long running zombie apocalypse game that recently concluded.

I currently run several games - A Deadlands Reloaded campaign, a Hellfrost campaign, and I am just gearing up to start something using Unknown Armies, a completely new system to me.

Great idea, but just a note - if you're going to be continuing with Savage Worlds then you'll need to think very carefully about an appropriate bonus if it is going to come up regularly. +1 in Savage Worlds is a really, really big deal.

@DanceSC Comments are not meant to be permanent, and answers in comments are very likely to get deleted. What you've written would make a really good answer. I'd strongly encourage you to turn it into one

@Julia that comment is probably worth editing into your question, as it gives more detail as to what you've tried so far.

@Jason_c_o I don't think this one can be solved by the Same-Page tool, as it isn't to do with a clash of gaming styles. As such, although there are a number of related and useful questions, I wouldn't say it is a duplicate

No, I believe they're looking for a tool that will make it easier to organise/view a large amount of content in an existing forums RP threads

comment Advice on balancing a “Super Powers” Savage Worlds Game?
You should probably edit your question to make it clear that you want to focus on that specific issue so that it can be reopened

comment Is this a balanced power + trapping?
I also think that the fact the trapping is combat focused is something of a red herring. Depending on the setting and character, this means that they become less effective out of combat, which balances itself out. This only becomes too powerful in a setting where there is significantly more combat than anything else

comment Is this a balanced power + trapping?
I would suggest that allowing it to affect 1 trait as normal, 2 with a raise, limiting it to self and effectively taking away the ability to raise a single trait by two die types with a raise might be more balanced?

comment Advice on balancing a “Super Powers” Savage Worlds Game?
For me, this question is really, really broad. There are a ton of posts on the official forums that talk about balance with the SPC, and it is a wide ranging subject. What is the actual problem you're trying to solve? Is it specifically the high damage issue?

comment How can I handle conflicts between my disdainful druid and characters who might provoke them?
This, and thousand times this. You have control over your character and what they do. You can decide how they react to the other PCs and NPCs.
