Book sizes

#1 Postby Phasma Felis » Tue Feb 28, 2017 11:17 pm

I've read that Pinnacle recently changed to a different standard size for current and future books. Most of the books in the PEG store don't have sizes listed either way, though. Is there a list somewhere of which books come in which size(s)?

Everything since the Sci-Fi & Super Powers Companions (inclusive) is in the Trade Paperback size. About 7x10.
Before that, the hardbacks are full size and most of the softcovers are the 6.5x9 "explorer" size.

Thanks! What's "full size" exactly? I'd guess 8.5"x11"?

Have they reprinted the Savage Worlds Deluxe in the new 7 x 10 size yet? Call me weird (many do! lol) but I like it when my book sizes match. For example, my current "core" rulebook is not the same size as my Lankhmar stuff and it's... bleh.

They have not. My understanding is that they won't be printing any new books until they run out of the current format, which could take awhile.

I agree, as someone newer to Savage Worlds (only about 2 years), this aesthetic element was a big "what the?" for me. I have a couple hard backs that are full size, several other books closer to the Deluxe book size and then the newer books are all the same size.

In the end though, it is all still workable. Every new book is the same size and they all fit nicely together.
