I'm relatively new to role playing, and am a Savage Worlds nut. I currently GM two games, one using the War of the Dead published campaign, the other set in the Deadlands Reloaded world.

This doesn't really answer the question though does it...

It might also be worth mentioning that depending on what exactly the players decide to do, you might end up planning a whole lot of stuff that never gets used

comment How can I convert the Necromorphs from Dead Space to Savage Worlds?
@SevenSidedDie I think my confusion actually comes from the difference between the question title and body. The title is very general "monsters", but the body focuses on one specific example. I think in retrospect all it needs is the title to be edited to reflect the content of the question

comment How can I convert the Necromorphs from Dead Space to Savage Worlds?
I would personally edit this to narrow the question as suggested by @JonathanHobbs. Giving broad guidelines on converting monsters to Savage Worlds is a wide topic that is probably too broad for one question on this site

Which system does this relate to, Pathfinder?

comment Are there limitations on devilbound creatures?
Probably not a good idea to use comments as a way of adding bits of questions you aren't sure you want to ask, as the chances are it will get deleted, and it kind of goes against how the system is supposed to work

I've made quite an extensive edit to your question to make it easier to read, but am aware that you might not agree with what I've changed. If you don't agree, then it is possible to roll back the edit, so have a look and see what you think

comment What guides and resources exist for creating custom classes in Dungeon World?
If you are going to attempt to sell anything even tangentially related to copyright material then you should pay a lawyer who specialises in that area to check it out, even if you have no doubts at all

comment Delaying your action in combat
The specific type of situation I was thinking of was waiting to see who a greater threat was, or who the shooter was targeting etc

comment Delaying your action in combat
No, but given the importance of initiative order in a system where combat is so deadly, I consider it a valid tactical decision to make, and if its not in the rules I am interested in whether others have house-ruled it in

Not really, no :o) You'd be amazed at the ingenuity of some people, and they might have come up with an even better answer that BESW that you hadn't thought of

comment Removing hindrances in Savage Worlds
Indeed. I tend to allow it if there is a good in story reason for doing so. For example, one of my PCs picked up a phobia of people in uniform due to a failed Fear roll. Part of the story saw them spending a significant period of time in the company of such people, and the player and I figured that it would have been enough to desensitise the character, removing the hindrance

I think part of the issue is that you seem to be asking two, only semi-related questions?

This is an absolutely fantastic answer, and gets right to the bottom of why we as GMs should be making decisions and interpreting rules. If I could give it +10 I would

Does it not depend on the abilities and composition of the PC group as to what 'tough' means?

So you're looking for a list of brick and mortar dice shops, or a site that has that list?
