Subject:Dice percentages
Time:10:17 am
For those interested, I have produced a sheet of the chances of making a given TN for a 1-5 dice of d4-d12. It includes the average result and the botch rate. Please note that this is not mathematically perfect; I calculated it by rolling pseudo random dice 1,000,000 times for each combination. It should be within .01% of the real probability, on fair dice.

Just an update for anyone who is interested. I've been e-mailing Pinnacle Legal and have gotten permission to use Deadlands, the Deadlands setting, quotes from the rulebooks and setting pieces, and to use the Dime Novels as source material in the creation of the Radio Drama - as long as I give credit for everything that is used. Once I've got a few recorded, there's a good chance that they'll even put it on the Pinnacle/Deadlands website for everyone to enjoy.
I'm currently in the process of adapting Perdition's Daughter. I plan on using the Dime Novels to start with and then move on to my own created adventures, and any that y'all submit. It will be a long process, but when things are going I really think everyone involved will be happy with it.
As always, suggestions are welcome.

Subject:Deadlands Radio Drama Theater?
Time:04:54 am
Hi, I'm a Deadlands Marshal in Texas and I'm going around the internet contacting others who have been influenced by the game system in an attempt to collect intellectual material to create a Deadlands Raido Drama. I'm still in the initial stages - looking for good storylines to convert into episodes, voice actors, sfx and foley artists, appropriate open source music, etc. If you would be interested in participating or contributing, please let me know:

Thank you,

Subject:Four questions
Time:04:12 pm
First post. I've been interested in Deadlands for a good while now but have yet to pick up much more than the D20 books.

1) How much revision was there between the first two editions of Deadlands? (I know the newest one uses the Savage Worlds system and all).

2/3) How was Wasted West and do I need the original Deadlands books to use it? (I know the background fairly okay, but mostly due to the D20 version).

4) How is the Deadlands: Reloaded?

I think that covers everything I'm curious about at this point. I have pondered a Deadlands/Ravenloft crossover game. D20 Ravenloft and D20 Deadlands both seem to not be the best versions of either of those settings. Kind of pondering adapting a lot of Ravenloft stuff to the Deadlands system. (This game is far in the offing as I'm currently running Scion).

Subject:LARP Deadlands?
Time:03:13 pm
Current Mood:hopefulhopeful
Hi,

I have played Deadlands regularly as a tabletop for years (it is my FAVORITE game ever) and I also have been Larping (live action roleplaying) in another system for a few years and I got to thinking how much fun a Live Action Deadlands game would be. I thought I had seen that someone was running one who posted in this group but I can't find the post again. I am curious about what their LARP rules look like and was hoping maybe they'd share if they have a system already worked out or at least be able to offer up some suggestions on how to work up a good system.

That said I'd be interested in hearing from anyone with  ideas or suggestions on how to work up a useable system for Deadlands as a Live Action Roleplaying game and am happy to share my ideas as I work on a feasible system to run one myself.

I'd be happy discussing it here or forming a seperate group to do so or even by email depending on how many people are interested in brainstorming or sharing their ideas and experiences with it.

Thanks in advance for your time :)

Subject:Deadlands Finale
Time:10:15 pm
We arrived at the mine and found a cart of gold/rock...but also some zombies. Oh, and Delilah was there. I think we kind of hand-waved her arrival, because magicloaf was playing her (and her hubby was playing Samson). But we were sure glad to have her and her six-guns!

Zombies! Also a dude with wild hair directing them, and carrying a Gatling pistol!

We sprang into action...but unfortunately, so did a certain Manitou. You might remember waaaaay back here that Nikolai had promised a Manitou three hours of use of his body if it would save Jane's life. The evil spirit picked now to collect, so I got to do a little working at cross-purposes to the group.

Jane fired up her flamethrower and set a couple of zombies on fire. Delilah shot a couple of them. Nikolai charged into battle with his sword, striking a zombie, but also making it hard for Jane to use her weapon again. The zombie left the possessed Nikolai alone and went after Delilah, but she shot it down and went after the wild-haired guy (Bloody Bill, the guy who'd owned the gold that was being laundered).

Nikolai used Phantom Fingers to knock the zombies down the hall, but at that point a zombie crashed through the cavern wall with a digging machine. Nikolai diverted his spell to keep it away from him, and Samson smacked the driver with his hammer. Bill, at this point, was pretty riddled with holes, and Nikolai threw a Corporeal Twist at him that effectively destroy his ability to shoot straight. He vamoosed.

But Jane...oh, dear. She fired up the flamethrower again, but rolled a 20 on the "does it explode?" roll, and she was out of chips. BOOM! The flamethrower exploded, incinerating her and the zombies around her, but also blowing up the digging machine. In the firelight, Samson and Delilah saw the manitou rise up out of Nikolai and vanish. The three of us managed to get out, and the cavern collapsed.

The sheriff concurred with our plan - use dynamite to seal the place up. No one needs to get to that crazy seal that could user in the Apocalypse, least of all us. After, the Sheriff offered us jobs, but Nikolai declined, saying that he hadn't come here to watch his friends die. He was going back to Russia, and offered to buy Delilah and Samson passage. They accepted, and the three of them hopped a train to New York to catch a steamship.

Subject:New Character Sheet (( Uses Microsoft Excel ))
Time:12:26 pm
Hello again! I wish ti inform everyone of my friend, Death Sheep. He has created a character sheet for Excel which is amazing. It just makes everything so much easier!

So, on his behalf, I proudly release version 1.0

http://files.filefront.com/Deadlandsv10xls/;123014


It is much better than the original sheets in my opinion, and I hope everyone else enjoys it!

A quick note: There are no Faerie Doctors. Not sure why he took them out.

Subject:I am looking for a Posse and a Marshal.
Time:03:31 am
Hello. First and foremost, I want to introduce myself to the community. I am Jordan, but you are to call me Mezrin. I've been looking for people to play Deadlands with, but I have no such luck in Chicago. So, I stumbled upon this community, and just had to join in hopes of finding people to play with.

I am not exactly a new player. I must have SOME sort of skill, seeing as my first character has 5 grit and is still alive, thank you very much! He has lost and regrown an arm, he has been working on becoming a Blessed, and is all around a badass Chinese guy.

So, I need a posse. I want to play with a new character of mine, who has already been created. I had a friend create some parts for me, just in case I






MARSHALS ONLY




ended up pulling the Harrowed joker card.




Players Read.





I'd also like a Marshal. Because, you see, I'm sick of not being able to play because my friends don't know how to be a Marshal! I'd like to get to playin', shootin' up some baddies and what not.

If you are interested, leave a reply with good times for you (Central Time, please) to play and let me know if you wish to be a player or Marshal. Thanks!
