Despite its quirks, Savage Worlds may be the best universal system when it comes to balancing groups of wildly disparate abilities and power levels. And they have some incredibly, fun settings to play in, including those below. As of 2019, Savage Worlds upgraded to the new Savage Worlds ADventure Edition (SWADE), so the information here will gradually shift to focus on that new edition.
Game Mechanic Note: In Savage Worlds, a flat +1 bonus is roughly equivalent to a +1 die type increase. (The flat bonus is a teeny bit better because it doesn't reduce the chance of Acing.) The same applies to flat penalties; e.g., a -1 penalty is a teeny bit worse than a -1 die type reduction.
