Hello World, During my conversion of John Sinclair to Savage Worlds I had to think about a way to simulate a special Class feature. John Sinclair contains a Bodyguard Player class which has the special feature that they can take a hit for another Character by spending the equivalent of a Bennie. Since one of the players has that class I could not convert without it. So here is my take. A new Edge: Bodyguard (Professional) Spirit D6 Vigor D8 The Character can leap in front of an attack that would otherwise have hit another character by spending a Bennie. … Continue reading New Edge: Bodyguard
Hello World! I am steadily working on my John Sinclair conversion and looked at the way Bennies work and thought about more uses which might fit the John Sinclair Universe. The Benny mechanic is great and any way I can get my players to use them is a good one! Additionally it is one of the easiest things to add as you can test it immediately at the table and just as easily remove it again. On to the rules I say! Look what I found : Your character suddenly remembers an Item he had stuffed in his pockets or … Continue reading Savage Sinclair: 2 New uses for Bennies
Hello World, first content Post for my John Sinclair conversion. The characters in the John Sinclair stories are never giving up. No matter how bad they may fail, they simply go at it again. Now even more determined than before. Determined (Background) Spirit D8 The Character is absolutely determined in everything he does. Not one to give up easily he will always try his very best.

Vampires, Werewolfs and Demons alike fear him for the cross of Ezekiel he is wearing.

He is the son of light, a bastion of good and time and time again he and his friends have thrown the dark hordes back into hell. They fight Vampires in London, destroy super Demons in the dark forests of the Spessart, cross nefarious plans all over the world and are pulled into unknown worlds and strange times. And now you can join them in their mission.
I am in the process of converting the world of the German pulp series John Sinclair to a Savage World setting. In essence it is a modern pulp horror setting in which all the characters are employed by a subgroup of new Scotland Yard simply called “The Department”. It is based on a weekly pulp series running since 1973 created by author Helmut Rellergerd alias Jason Dark. There are already more than 1750 stories published with a new one every week, so no shortage on source material!
