Is this really a SWADE conversion? The Amphibious Racial Attribute for hybrids refers to having a starting Swimming die of d8 or d10 [depending on which hybrid] as well as Swimming at full Pace, but Athletics is used for Swimming in SWADE and the Aquatic Racial Ability only refers to Swimming at full makes it look like the author was still in SWD mode.

Also the Thick Skin Edge refers to Force d6+ as a requirement; what is Force supposed to be? Where is it from? It's not in SWADE.

And as the reviews mention, there are no Creature Conversions, and also hardly any of the Mutations are included, thus making this "conversion" fairly pointless as it stands.

Such a shame as I wanted to use this for SWADE, but haven't enough time to make up the shortcomings.

As a backer of the Polaris kickstarter campaign, I should not have had to pay for this SWADE conversion - especially since Savage Worlds was part of the kickstarter campaign.

Plus. $5 is a bit overpriced for 13 pages

I love the Polaris setting, but never thought highly of the rules. I do like SWADE though, so this looks promising, but it also seems relatively pricey at $5 for only 13 pages (especially since you need four other books to make use of it). Temping, but not yet sold on it.

Yeah that seems a BIT steep to say the least. You'd think this would be free for just 13 pages.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
