For once, I’ve done my research. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

These aren’t ideas that really work in a western, even a pulpy one. Having a bucket-o-dice so everybody could have their various die pools in front of them without having to sort through things every time or reroll the same die to simulate a pool helps a lot.

If you can find them. Some on them are rather vague and the book encourages the GM to come up with their own. I’m just dead,ands to make sure we have a fun game with a deadlaands system that doesn’t get rulsbook and really feels like a fun ocre. I’ve yet to see one. By the way, In this deadlands game I will be letting characters die if it happens. This is where free form character creation shines.

I wouldn’t have cared if my characters died in your fantasy games either, F20 been prepared for character death. This is the picture on the cover: First, let me say that my deadlnads experience with Deadlands is the d20 variety. Are there any good adventure paths out there for Deadlands or am I gonna have to make it up myself? A good enough compromise, I think, though I’m not too familiar with it.


You get what you want without the extra fluff. I’ve even heard multiple people say to never play it or “it doesn’t exist” so really it can’t be that good at all. So, there’s a lot of bitter feelings in that regard. I took that and changed the question to, how many ways to find something out can you think of?

Just dont attack the game with a DnD mindset. Give it your best shot and I’ll do my best to understand.

Right now for Deadlands they have one called “The Flood” that takes place in California. In fact the only thing that every character should have is the guts skill which is because everything is scary as hell in the weird west.

One part of the story line might end on the Mexican border and the next one might take place in Sacramento. I may indeed like it.

corw Reloaded looks pretty good and I found a electronically fillable character sheet to boot. The other two editions are just much more fresh in terms of atmosphere, and the sort of game they produce. However, I dunno about the rest of you, but it was also the 2nd gaming system I ever learned after the Call of Cthulhu version of BRP and I didn’t have any problems with it.

I also enjoyed it despite the occasional problem. I don’t think we know enough to suggest any but there are some out there. I don’t think D20 Deadlands is terrible in and of itself.

And then took as many of those spells as I ddadlands.

Corr he means as long as it doesn’t suffer from the oversimplification that 4th did to 3. That last post is in reference to the cookie cutter thing only.

Just a personal preference, I like fantasy games to be high powered. If my players are willing to learn the system it definitely seems like a viable option. Edges seem very similar to feats in my opinion.

By dividing characters by their “various rklebook as you say, you can bundle what you might consider hucksters to want every discrete level, but that implies that every huckster would want to improve in similar ways. Why are Classes bad for Deadlands? Classic has a learning curve but is rewarding with the amount of flavor it brings right? Mine was a combat-focused blaster who took mainly spell and weapon focused edges.

Sounds great, anyone know where I can find these? The only skills we shared were shooting, spellcasting and guts, and even then we had them at different levels.

The Deadlands rules were so elegant and perfect for the theme. So, I ruulebook some digging on your inquiry and discovered some things.
