''Savage Worlds'' is a universal, award-winning role-playing game and miniatures wargame, written by Shane Lacy Hensley, and published by Great White Games doing business as Pinnacle Entertainment Group. The game emphasizes speed of play and reduced preparation over realism or detail.

Although Savage Worlds is a generic rules system, Pinnacle has released "Savage Settings" - campaign settings or modules designed specifically for the Savage Worlds rules. These have included ''Evernight'', ''50 Fathoms'', ''Necessary Evil'', Rippers, and Low Life. Pinnacle has also published setting books based on the company's earlier lines, including ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}: Reloaded'' as well as the ''Tour of Darkness'' and ''Necropolis'' settings based on the Weird Wars line.

Beginning with 50 Fathoms, the majority of settings released by Pinnacle feature a concept known as a "Plot Point Campaign". In such campaigns, a series of loosely defined adventure scenarios are presented. A main storyline is presented as a series of "Plot Points" and additional side-quests (or "Savage Tales") expand the scope of the campaign. This format allows a group of characters to explore the game universe while playing through (or disregarding) the main storyline in a manner similar to that of computer {{RPG}}s (such as[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]).
