The year is 1879, and the history is not our own.
After almost two decades of bitter fighting, the American Civil War has ground to a standstill. The Confederate States are still free. California has fallen into the Pacific Ocean. Rail Barons fight bloody battles to decide whom the victor will be in the race for a transcontinental railroad, while a superfuel called ghost rock advances technology by unpredictable leaps and sometimes dangerous bounds. The Sioux have retaken the Dakotas and the Coyote Confederation dances the Ghost Dance on the High Plains. Some even say the dead walk among us.
What we need these days are a brave band of hex-slinging Hucksters, deadly Gunslingers, fast thinking Mad Scientists, intrepid Muckrakers, and everything in-between to fight the near endless onslaught of... things.
Deadlands Reloaded is a game of magic and mayhem, shootouts and shut-ins, and general craziness. It's based on Savage Worlds, so if you're familiar with that system you're already pretty much good to go. If you're not though I've tossed the SW players handbook in the Meetup's files.
