Ok. So I got a job in house. It’s a step down but I am being purposely overpaid for it. The nice thing about that is as soon as a position opens up at the level I am at currently I am in the front of the line to take it. At least that’s according to my boss and him and I have this incredibly blunt and good relationship.
Long story short, I agreed to GM a game in the made in abyss universe without any knowledge about how to make a savage setting, or run a savage campaign... They're really excited and I want to make it a reality, but I have no idea where to begin...
Any advice on setting books to use as a base or general savage worlds building would be greatly appreciated!
Can you tell me more of this universe you plan to run it in?

Still listening but some comments
Soon after The Crystal Shard was published they had a forgotten realms book for the rpg that included stats for various characters from books. It included phonetic pronunciation next to their names. The pronunciation in the book was “Drist” with the i sounding like it does in the word “in”.
For getting into character I will admit to liking MASKS and their rather simple Drives. Every character has a drive which is “To _________” which defines every other aspect of the character. I was doing this for years but in a more longhand way and this just works so well. Damn you PbtA people.
