As soon as I discovered the Savage Worlds role-playing system, I immediately fell in love with it. It was everything that other "most popular FRP game" wasn't.

This is strictly rules-as-written, with clarifying information from one of the system developers.

It's only 10 pages long, with 2 more pages of examples.
