The Deadlands rules were so elegant and perfect for the theme. This based off what I’ve read about in the Savage worlds book, I still don’t have much of a clue how classic works. For once, I’ve done my research.

I’ve seen books made for other editions, but have never had the opportunity to play.

Also the rules are unfitting to the setting. Ok, so far, I’m seeing that D20 isn’t a viable option because it takes the flavor out of the game and gets boring correct?

Quick question, which version of Savage worlds does Reloaded work off of? Please correct me d220 I’m wrong. I’ve never personally played a game with no classes but it definitely sounds interesting.

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. The only skills we shared were shooting, spellcasting and rulebooo, and even then we had them at different levels.

Sure, it kinda works, but it’s boring and not made for games like this. However, I believe it’s the d20 version.

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. There are Archetypes but no defined class deadlamds.


It gives the world a much stronger and diffrent feel. Mainly I want to avoid a cookie cutter character situation. That said, I know there are disadvantages to the 3E rules.

I wasn’t saying anything about Savage Worlds. Please elaborate, my understanding of it is this: I’m still curious what’s so bad about D20 though. In fact, I’m gearing up to start a new D20 Deadlands campaign next week. How many versions are there and are they that varied?

The game is built around big heroes and villains and the atmosphere of poker chips and playing cards. I think a gunfight should be a lethal experience no matter what your level.

Savage Worlds On a rulebopk note, a lot of the anti Deadlands D20 hatred is stemming from the false assumption dwadlands it killed classic Deadlands, when in reality it was terrible publishing platform and non-vocal fan base. Mine was a combat-focused blaster who took mainly spell and weapon focused edges. I don’t know how rylebook shrink the quote.

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. A huge pool of skills, spells, and edges to choose from mean that no two characters will probably be alike yes they’ll share some similarities.

Basically all the same capabilities within all the classes save for the flavor text accompanying it. It also looks like DriveThruRPG has them as well, if you can’t find ckre versions cheaper somewhere. Yeah, if Reloaded doesn’t work out we can go to D20 and see how it is. Why are Classes bad for Deadlands? Maybe it’s my innate love for the Dark Tower Series talking here but that Devil’s Tower trilogy sounds particularly interesting.

I don’t think we know enough to suggest any but there are some out there. Maybe he means as long as it doesn’t suffer from the oversimplification that 4th did to 3.

I enjoy both of them and the players code both games have fun and that’s really why we play isn’t it? That last post is in reference to the cookie cutter thing only. Everybody with an arcane background has to learn their own sub-system, but not knowing how the other guys’ mojo works is part of the charm, in my opinion. I’m just trying to catch up on what I missed out on, I’ve been a long time reader of these forums, but this is my first time being a contributor, so please be patient with me.

I guess all I have to do is wait to see which system we use. That’s weird to hear from you seeing as how you love running extremely high power games.

I dont know how to sum it up really There is some making things up for the GM[2]. Funny how you got on here before Steven did, Phil. I’m gonna learn a little about the system and then ask my players what they would prefer. What does that even mean? It also uses a different core book.

Because the orignal rule system is so much better.
