Introduction

The spaghetti western... with meat!

The year is 1876, but the history is not our own. The American Civil War rages on, neither side able to establish a clear advantage. Most of California has fallen into the sea. The Sioux Nations have reclaimed the Dakotas. And the dead walk among us.

In Deadlands: The Weird West Roleplaying Game, players take on the roles of hexslinging hucksters, mad scientists armed with weird, steampunk gizmos, deadly gunfighters, fearless Indian braves, and wizened shamans.

In 1863, a vengeful warband called the Last Sons unleashed the manitous upon humanity, and nothing has been the same since.

The world's gone to Hell, and sometimes you're better off dead. A few relentless heroes have returned from the grave to battle the abominations of these new myths and twisted legends, and their mysterious masters, the Reckoners.

Come take a walk in the Deadlands.

If you dare.
