Deadlands Savage Worlds Adventure Edition Session 2

This is a short campaign that I am running trying out the new Adventure Edition rules set in the Deadlands world. You can find my player facing notes here which I will keep updated. This campaign is only expected to last about ten sessions. I am looking forward to the release of the updated Deadlands rules for the new system, but until then, I will muddle through with my own conversion. Though some of these conversions would not be used in a longer term campaign.

Deadlands Session 0 Recap For Savage Worlds Adventure Edition

This is a short campaign that I am running trying out the new Adventure Edition rules set in the Deadlands world. You can find my player facing notes here which I will keep updated. This campaign is only expected to last about ten sessions. I am looking forward to the release of the updated Deadlands rules for the new system, but until then, I will muddle through with my own conversion. Though some of these conversions would not be used in a longer term campaign.

This first session was all about character building and while we had two physical copies of the Deadlands Reloaded Players Guide at the table and three tablets with the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition Rules this took most of the night. The issue was more not knowing the rules of Savage Worlds in general and less the specific changes for the new Editions. We did have to make several changes to most of the characters because of the rules knowledge, and even then I didn’t catch them all until I added the characters to the campaign site.

Deadeye Slim and another Male and Female Ranger

So today I finished a batch of Deadeye Slim bones miniatures as well as another Male Texas Ranger and Female Texas Ranger as part of building up enough miniatures for a Deadlands game that I am working on. One thing I tried to do with these is to make them of more varied ethnicity than I normally think to do. I hope I did them justice based on the choices of reaper paints I used.

The Cackler

This is The Cackler from the Dead Men Walking set. When I painted Stone, I was not as happy with how he turned out, so I waited for quite some time to paint The Cackler. You can find the set here. This and the other seven miniatures that I started today and will hopefully finish next weekend will be part of what I hope is a Deadlands campaign that I started planing out.

Impressions from Deadlands Grim Prairie Tales

I just finished reading this book today. This is a book of new abominations and savage tales that feature them. Each of these abominations are interesting in their own way, but I have a particular interest in Agatha Leeds, Minikin, Swarm Man, and Wilton’s Head. Most of those that I particularly liked are the ones that are hardest to kill or have some way of surviving an encounter with the posse and becoming a reoccurring enemy. This is because I think reoccupying enemies that your group can take on and stop, but who can still survive the encounter in some way are great for driving stories.

Impressions of Deadlands Reloaded: Trail Guides Vol. 1

I finished reading Deadlands Reloaded: Trail Guides Vol. 1 today. This is a combination of three books that were put out individually earlier. I had previously read South o’ the Border and when I got the collection as part of the Deadlands Reloaded Bundle of Holding, I was looking forward to reading the entire set.
