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.

So far what I’ve heard is that it limits choices and is devoid of the flavor of the original. How it basically works is it starts out with a players section of background information[1], then a GMs section with extra rules and the truth behind what was said in the players section.

Some on them are rather vague and the book encourages the GM to come up with their own. Well spoken Jude, You’ve definitely made a strong case for reloaded.

But to get back on topic, I can see how it’s an advantage to build your characters from the ground up It gives a rulebiok of flexibility that class levels can’t match. Deadlands Reloaded being a later installment into this franchise and utilizing a different core system escapes the brunt of this attrition on the merit that it is not D20It’s also Savage Worlds, which was originally designed as a spinoff from Deadlands, so it’s considerably closer to the original feel.


It all depends on how its run. Like the D20 version has the Gunslinger class for instance, but reloaded has no such thing. Also, I’d like to know a little more about classic.

SW still works dice and poker chips where it can.

Excluding the profession based edges which are more like prestige classes. Deadlands Reloaded is regarded highly but is cautioned as an oversimplification of the system akin to the 3. It’s kinda mix and match build your own hero kinda thing. This is the picture on the cover: Just dont attack the game with a DnD mindset.

This is my understanding of what’s been posted so far. Yeah, if Reloaded doesn’t work out we can go to D20 and see how it is. The were a mix of dice and playing cards. Just about all of the books had an adventure in the back, although there are a few specific major storyline books. I was looking through the site though and no one here gives d20 deadlands a good review. Judging by the other threads on this forum though, D20 Deadlands gets beat up a lot because it’s so bad.

There are Archetypes but no defined class system. For once, I’ve done my research. I think the original Deadlands rules, while stylish, were a cluttered and clunky mess of conflicting subsystems. Why are Classes bad for Deadlands? I wouldn’t have cared if my characters died in your fantasy games either, I’ve been prepared for character death.

The original has a bit of a learning curve to it but it plays well. I highly doubt that I’ll be looking too much into classic though, a brief description of a round of it’s combat brings back the nightmares of Mech Warrior and spending an entire night getting through two rounds of combat. I don’t think we know enough to suggest any but there are some out there.


I may indeed like it. I can’t think of any adaptation of an already existing system into the D20 ruleset that didn’t turn out to be terrible. You can have high powered games ruleboik don’t rely on people being able to jump off mountains and take repeated punches in the face from creatures ten times their size. That said, I know there are disadvantages to the 3E rules.

Mainly I want to avoid a cookie cutter character situation. If you can find them. So, I did deadlwnds digging on your inquiry and discovered some things. Have you played any other non class games? I took that and changed the question to, how many ways to find something out can you think of? Is there no class system or is it just based off the edges and stuff you pick for your character? Hey guys, my group is planning on starting up a deadlands game.

Deadlans weird to hear from you seeing as how you love running extremely high power games. I’m happy to jump in on this conversation and am open to all suggestions.

You cast hexes using poker draws and got number of actions based on a die roll based off of your speed and then a drew playing cards to determine when in the round you actually took those actions.

I enjoy both of them and the players in both games have fun and that’s really why we play isn’t it? You spend points to gain your attributes, skills, and edges. One part of the story line might end on the Mexican border and the next one might take place in Sacramento.
