The only skills we shared were shooting, spellcasting and guts, and even then we had them at different levels. It gives the world a much stronger and diffrent feel. Here’s some things called “One-sheet adventures” from the publishers.

The rules reflect that. If it’s not a good system, then the creativity and imagination doesn’t mean squat. What does that even mean? Mine was a combat-focused blaster who took mainly spell and weapon focused edges. You spend points to gain your attributes, skills, and edges.

You want the Explorer’s Edition Front cover: The original has a bit of a learning curve to it but it plays well. In fact, I’m gearing up to start a new D20 Deadlands campaign next week.

And then took as many of those spells as I could. But no, there doesn’t seem to be a class system. Honestly, I wouldn’t say that Deadlands is deadlanxs game that gains anything by avoiding classes. 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.


By dividing characters by their “various blessings” as you say, you can bundle what you might consider hucksters to want every discrete level, but that implies that every huckster would want to improve in similar ways. My very first experience with the Deadlansd System was in fact Deadlands D This is partially fixed in the new pathfinder system.

They make things simpler, I guess, but that’s not necessary. Not to get too off topic but I agree with the fighter dip remark.

deaslands This is my understanding of what’s been posted so far. Savage Worlds On a side note, a lot of the anti Deadlands D20 hatred is stemming from the false assumption that it killed classic Deadlands, when in reality it was terrible publishing platform and non-vocal fan base. Yeah, if Reloaded doesn’t work out we can go to D20 and see how it is.

Another problem I have with level-based systems is the ability to “dip” into skills that aren’t part of your core archetype’s layout. So remember to be careful and have some back up character ideas in the wings. D20 is clunky at times, yes, but it does offer a broad versatility and if you’re creative, can repurpose to any sort of game.

Are there any good adventure paths out there for Deadlands or am I gonna have to make it up myself? Not sure, but I can guess.

They’re fast, fitting and deliberate.

This based off what I’ve read about in the Savage worlds book, I still don’t have much of a clue how classic works. Well, those are fantasy games, If I’m going for realism like in a western or something modern, I like it to be gritty and fatal. I guess rulbook I have to do is wait to see which system we use. Places like Troll And Toad or your friendly neighborhood game store might have old copies in stock too.


I’ve even heard multiple people ruleobok to never play it or “it doesn’t exist” so really it can’t be that good at all. I think a gunfight should be a lethal experience no matter what your level.

Deadlands d20

Just dont attack the game with a DnD mindset. I’m just trying to make sure we have a fun game with a fun system that doesn’t get old and really feels like a fun game. Cord interested to see what savage worlds did with it. You get what you want without the extra fluff.

I’ve never seen such a harsh response to a D20 adaptation.

The Deadlands rules were so elegant and perfect for the theme. Or maybe he means as long as it doesn’t resemble 4th?

I think reloaded is going to work fine though. Not sure what they are but what the hell.

Also, I’d like to know a little more about classic. And there’s tons of Deadlands systems, I’m just working to find the best one. Deadlands rules are built in the theme of the Deadlands game. Please correct me if I’m wrong. But yes I also enjoyed it. Class systems bundle abilities into archetypal packages.

I may indeed like it. I’ve seen books made for other editions, but have never had the opportunity to play. Please elaborate, my understanding of it is this:
