Savage Worlds Essentials Boxed Set and Collectors Edition

So on Monday, I got my kickstarter award containing the new Essentials Boxed set, the new collector’s edition, and the normal edition of the core book. I am not going to go into details on the books other than to say that both editions of the book look and feel great, and that I wish I had ordered an extra of the collector’s edition.

Deadlands Savage Worlds Adventure Edition Session 10

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.

We started off the session with the posse noticing John Hoover leaving his saloon through a side exit as they exited the Marshal’s office. Lefty also noticed that he was moving without his normal limp. Between this fact, and the suspicion that Marshal Cornell threw upon him, the posse decides that Lefty and Greyeyes will follow him while Mongo and Reverend Graves will get the horses.

We start the session with the posse at the mine shaft that terminates with the strange checkered wall. Reverend Graves remembers seeing something like that in Reverend Browne’s book Monas Hieroglyphica. So he and Lefty go to look at the book and see if it has any clues as to what the wall is and what to do about it, while Greyeyes and Mongo stay to guard the strange wall.

Deadlands Work Game Session 0

This was the start of a game that I am running at work. I am re-using the town that I created and have used for my non-work group, though I have been thinking about changes based on how I think this went with them. This is the first of what is going to be an ongoing game, and I expect at least one or two more players who couldn’t make the first game.

We started this with a brief introduction to the world of Deadlands, followed by the creation of characters. The posse we end up with are as follows:

So we pick up with the group clearing up the bodies of those that they had killed and who had not had their canker escape yet. Afterwards they traveled up the wash to where the canker possessed bodies were digging.

We start this session in the evening after speaking with Gugenheim. The posse then decides to let Dr. Banks know about what is going on with Cankers. After filling him in and convincing him of what is going on, then they move on to purchase rifles to go after the Cankers in the morning.
