Deadlands or: Weird Stuff in the Old West

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.

    Just going over some last minute stuff and I figured I'd put this out there. If you've already made your character, or even just have a general idea of what you'd like them to be, shoot me an email so I can better tailor the opening to something that makes sense and doesn't force the clich├ęd "so you're all in a tavern" beginning.

      Yes you'll all be starting at level 1. As for riding that's totally up to you guys as the story and what happens is totally based on you guys. I have about 5 hooks in mind and will bring up whatever fits the play style you establish.

    Fun setting! I'm still working on my calendar, but do players need to have characters ready to go before hand?

      Not at all. Character creation in savage worlds is pretty easy just try to think up a character type you want and give them a few flaws. The crazier the better.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
