About Deadlands

Deadlands is an interesting blend of genres. Start with the American wild west: cowboys, Indian's, Chinese railroad workers, gold strikes, claim jumping, cattle drives, and stagecoach robberies. Add a healthy dash of steampunk: airships, steam powered guns and cars, steam powered automatons, and barely plausible science. Season with some magic and spiritualism: pacts with daemons to cast spells, dark magic, Indian rituals, and religious miracles. Finish off with healthy does of horror: nightmares that come to life, undead PCs, zombies, and otherworldly horrors with plans for humanity.
