Deadlands was one of my favorite systems. Only one campaign each in weird and wasted west. First character in wasted west was a Doubting Thomas who didn't find out until he died the first time that he was a harrowed android. He slowly evolved from annoying redneck to terminator.
My character from weird west was the only religious character I ever enjoyed playing. He was basically friar tuck in a potato sack and rope belt. He was obese and carried around a sack of food to share and eat constantly. Being obese, with big spirit(or whatever it is called) let him use martyrdom to tank for his fellow sinners

Had this idea for a campaign tell me what you think. All heroes are Harrowed but don't know it yet, literally wake up in their graves and dig their way out. They don't know they're harrowed and slowly start to piece together their backstories. Probably around level 5 they gain the harrowed specific abilities. I just can't think of what could've raised them and what would make them care.

Question for the Deadlands vets out there:
What is a good antagonist for a southwest campaign?

I've been thinking of fluffing up a mad scientist type to be the bad guy but after two of my players went in that direction I've been having doubts.

Is there an appropriate antagonistic force in the southwest that might work instead?

The southwest is probably well suited for the classic "western" themes, it doesn't have a lot of unique elements like the Maze or Disputed territories. Maybe a megalomaniac cattle baron looking to muscle out his competition, bandits starving a poor farming village of its water, ruffians in black hats riding around shooting up the place.

Hey, new thread, how exciting!

So remember how I was bitching last thread that I never get to run Deadlands? Well gather around anon and let uncle Willie spin you a tale.

Been running an OSR off and on the past few months with some friends that think I'm God's gift to gamers (Dunno how I fooled 'em into this, but I'm never one to look gift players in the mouth) but this week the half ogre had to bail for family stuff. He's sort of a lynchpin for the party so I was reluctant to proceed with that game and so proposed alternatives.

Chance had my hapless choose Deadlands and once I explained parts of the setting, they bought in hard. (One player "you had me at GambleWizards")

The party composition ended up as follows

Moira - Lutheran priestess. Peaceable, but not afraid to call upon the Almighty for protection.

Doc - A chemist of the New Science, looking to make money selling his "blasting juice" to mining companies and "anxiety tincture" to people as defensive supplies.

Zhong "Bad Luck John" Wu - A monk of the Drunken Fist who was sworn to poverty and fighting the evils of the West.

Since I didn't have anything really prepped, I decided to take them through the Flood campaign. Good a start as any for a bunch of saddletramps on their first ride out.

Bound together by mutual bonds of not wanting to be stuck in the desert on stalled train, the posse delved into the tunnel of the Hellbore, wary of things lurking in the dark. Their bickering along the way lead to some Wasatch rail warriors on guard to get the drop on 'em, and lead them to the heart of a secret underground mining camp.

There, they were introduced to the head of the enterprise, the gracious and charming Dr. Darius Hellstromme. After telling the story of the tunnel collapse, Dr. Hellstromme had to inform the posse due to the secret nature of his project, they would not be able to leave this camp. (1/?)

However, in exchange, because he was a gracious host, they would be witness to his grand project's completion. Plus, if they were willing to pull their weight in the camp, he would pay them the princely sum of $2 a day. Doc had dollar signs in his eyes, Moira was happy with a chance to minister to those in need, and Zhong was doubly happy. First that Dr. Hellstromme conversed with him in Cantonese, but also he would be able to tell his family in Shan Fan he'd found success as a rail worker. They all went to work, Moira to the medical tent, Doc producing more blasting juice than he'd ever made before, and Zhong shifting the refuse left behind by the wailing Hellbore.

Work proceeded along for a couple days, when the tunneling opened a side fissure. Strange creature poured from the side fissure and attacked the rail crew (Doc, ever the skeptic, was fascinated by the large insectoids) liberal applications of fire and Kung fu dispatched most of the beasts, leaving behind injured to tend to.

The Hellbore's operator had been taken, so Doc volunteered to run the device. Why, it was so simple a child could it! He was able to decipher the controls, and piloted the tunneler for the remainder of the day.

Mid-way through the next day, the bore broke through to light, the Great Maze of California beckoned! Hellstromme had his skilled guests board the Good Intentions, which was revealed to be some manner of floating locomotive, and they sped for the Wasatch railhead just outside Lost Angels.

The good Doctor's enemies got word of his impanding arrival though, and set out to stop him. Over a dozen rail warriors of the Iron Dragon, including ronin samurai and Chinese ogres ("They're just freakishly big men!" Protested Doc) beset the train.

The posse tried to fight off the boarders, but were out gunned and were forced to abandon ship after Zhong was beaten and run through, making leaps off the train as Wasatch steam wagons roared in to defend Hellstromme (2/3)

While his companions bounced along the ground, Zhong Wu waited for his named be called as he waited in line at the Celestial Bureaucracy. Then, he felt a blazing hot hand on his shoulder. A demon grinned at him and advised he was not quite done and lead him to a black flaming door that had not been there before. Zhong found himself wandering the dark forest alone, catching glimpses of the dead deer beast stalking him.....

That reminds me of a story.

My GM loves to quote history nerd facts, for example, Union soldiers made $13 a month. As part of the plot we needed $10,000 I forget what for. I go into a saloon and find the bartender "Hey Hoss, what time of the month do all the soldiers come in and get drunk?". GM looks at me weird but answers. I look at the rest of the party, "The 1,000 soldiers in the fort are owed $13 on the 3, I say we stake out the only rail line into town on the second. We'll even have $3,000 extra for gear"

And thus we robbed the Union payroll train.

Cultists are always the most fun. A traveling revival comes to the area and everyone gets REAL excited about it. You can be subtle at first with just passing references to it during other goings on, but eventually you get to bring out the crazy eyed, human sacrificers. Plenty of different motivations for cult activity be it demon summoning, ancient magics, achieving godhood, and so on. Best of all, cults have a lot of manpower so you can reuse the same cult again and again no matter how dead killy your posse gets.

Wild Wild West is honestly Deadlands focused on dealing with a mad scientist. Tremors 4, well, I have a sneaking suspicious mojave rattlers and desert things were based off the Tremors movies. That they made an old west one, even better.

And League, yeah. That could be a Deadlands group, especially once they go through some of the weirder shit.

In Reoaded/Noir, the Harrowed Edge seems like it's something of a waste, since there's a small chance of coming back as a Harrowed anyway.

Tiny ass chance of coming back upon character death of a long played character, or 100% chance.

I know which I'd choose every time, and it isn't "tiny ass chance". It exists pretty much as insurance for a character you've invested a lot of time into.

>> No.54908528

>>54908350
Actually, in that case I'd rather a rule where instead of drawing, the player can take the next advance and use it on the Harrowed edge, given that being forced to spend an edge before the game even starts (and before you've invested a lot of time and energy in that character) seems rather shitty.

Honestly, that's probably one of my biggest problems with Savage Worlds in general. All the fun stuff is gated behind Advances and Edges, and you really only have 2 free Advances a Rank (Since you spend 1 on your Attribute increase, and 1 to increase your Combat/Something Else), 1 if you take spellcasting.

Some folks want to play deaders off the bat. I'm actually glad they changed it so people could take it off the bat rather than hoping to jackpot it on death.

As to Edges, they're well and good, but I wouldn't say they're the end all be all. You want your players to have extra edges to specialize, do it to it. As me for me, I like my players getting to improve their style every session or so, gives them progression without feeling too much like Santa Claus.

If a player lights dynamite and throws it at someone, when does it go off? At the end of the current round? Do you let people pick it up and try to throw it back, or put it out by stamping the fuse? I was thinking of secretly drawing a card and having it go off when the card comes up. Classic if it matters.

There's a rule built into "throwin' thangs" that tells me about off target throws, but nothing mentions when the dynamite actually goes off.

There was an example in the book about it being really bad to roll and go bust when trying to put out a dynamite fuse, so I assumed it must be a thing that it doesn't auto go off.

Yes, so the default assumption appears to be that it automatically goes off.
If you want to make it harder/suckier for your players, that's probably what you should go with. If they fail or fumble, you can say that they misjudged the timer or something, it is within your power as a Marshal.

Thanks for answering fellas. Had a couple other questions if you don't mind.

Do you actually roll for stun for PCs and every enemy whenever they take a wound or do you ignore it? I read this was often ignored as a house rule.

What penalty do you give for being wounded in different areas, or as a result of successful called shots? If I take a called shot at someone's knee, do they fall prone and then move at a limp, or just mark wounded in the knee section of the character sheet. How about an eyeball shot at -10? I just follow common sense "realism" here, right? Get shot in the eye and you're probably dead, and blinded permanently in that eye if not.

>>54912884
>Do you actually roll for stun for PCs and every enemy whenever they take a wound or do you ignore it?

Roll unless you feel it's really going to break the game or something. The game does hinge quite a bit on stuff getting stunned.

Howdy y'all. Nice to see Deadlands gettin' some love. GMed a full campaign of it last year and it was a blast. 'Twas the Flood an' it ended with Grimme brought to his knees by the best Persuasion roll I've ever seen an 'annoying' NPC gettin' the love of the posse - so much so that he ended up drinkin' himself to death because he managed to get more than a few fist fulls of dollars from 'em. Good times, good times.

Still got the majority of the Made, Saw, Played memes I got the players to made of the characters on my uni workspace, heh.

Though, one thing I gotta say, Hellstromme's Touched special ability is a bit of bullshit.

I like the idea of combining them. Flamethrower shoots out a flammable adhesive substance, but it could fire the glue separately.
How about this mechanically, If the target is hit with the glue gun their pace is 0. If they are hit with a flammable object after that they take damage as if they were hit with a raise on the original attack. Fire is a small burst template, where the glue can only hit 1 person. Damage is 2 D12 of damage.
