12, Blood in the Water
House rules—the chance to personalize a game and call it our own—are the lifeblood of any RPG. In this issue, you get a look at the rules your Editor likes to use.
14, We’re Going to Need a Bigger Boat
You can never have enough equipment. At least that’s what my players seem to think, and so do the guys that submitted the items for this issue.
15, What to do with a drunken sailor…
Carousing can be a major part of any 50 Fathoms campaign. In this issue, David Goecke details a system that allows you to determine what happens when you botch that Drinking roll!
17, OK, how bad is my character hurt?
In this article, Matthew Mather, the Chief Savage Yahoo and Maintainer of the Savage FAQ, discusses the Savage Worlds damage system—so you can understand it.

33, Professional Edges
Some words of wisdom from Shane and Clint Black on the creation and implementation of Professional Edges. This article has some great advice—pay attention!
34, It’s a paranormal world after all…
Ed Wetterman, of 12 to Midnight, Inc., and the Savage Rules Meister, Clint Black, submitted this system for handling psychic powers in a Savage horror setting. When Ed talks horror, you’d better listen, and anything Clint’s involved with is worth a look! This is the first in a two-part series. Look for more stuff from these guys in future issues!
38, The Cradle Campaign
The Cradle Campaign is an officially authorized savaging of the setting for Innana’s Kiss, from 12 to Midnight.
