Yeah, if Reloaded doesn’t work out we can go to D20 and see how it is. If it’s not a good system, then the creativity and imagination doesn’t mean squat. I wasn’t saying anything about Savage Worlds. 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. Because the orignal rule system is so much better.

I’ve yet to see one. So, I did some digging on your inquiry and discovered some things. Places like Troll And Toad or your friendly neighborhood game store might have old copies in stock too. Maybe he means as long as it doesn’t suffer from the oversimplification that 4th did to 3.

I guess what I’m really interested in is what about the game mechanics makes it unplayable? Judging by the other threads on this forum though, D20 Deadlands gets beat up a lot because it’s so bad. Deadlands Reloaded is regarded highly but is cautioned as an oversimplification of the system akin to the 3.


Hey guys, I’m the DM for this Deadlands game.

Just a personal preference, I like fantasy games to be high powered. 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 lot of flexibility that class levels can’t match. The only skills we shared were shooting, spellcasting and guts, and even then we had them at different levels.

Deadlands d20

In fact the only thing that every character should have is the guts skill ddadlands is because everything is scary as hell in the weird west. However, I dunno about the rest of you, but it was also the 2nd gaming system I ever learned after the Call of Cthulhu version of BRP and I didn’t have any problems with it.

It’s kinda mix and match build your own hero kinda thing. Not sure what they are but what the hell. Please correct me if I’m wrong. We croe for 3 sessions without any combat, and many more without any major encounters. Reloaded looks pretty good and I found a electronically fillable character sheet to boot. Otherworld hit it right on the head. I think reloaded is going to work fine though.

Lacking the formal level deadlandz, my huckster could pick up a few ranks of Brawlin’ without having to spend one of his finite level slots on a “fighter” level or whatever I’ve not ruleboik looked at the D20 rules, this is a guess, don’t hurt me. My very first experience with the D20 System was in fact Deadlands D I’ve been looking over the Savage worlds book recently and can see what you’re saying. As you say, the archetype thing isn’t that far off the vibe of Deadlands, but for somebody coming at it from a skill-based system mindset already, classes don’t add anything.


Mine was a combat-focused blaster who took mainly spell and weapon focused edges. People keep using dearlands phrase, I do not think it means what you think it means. When I say too 4th edition, I’m referencing the oversimplification of the system.

First, let me say that my only experience with Deadlands is the d20 variety. You cast hexes using poker draws and got number of actions based on a die roll based off of your speed f20 then a drew playing cards to determine when in the round you actually took those actions. I linked him to this thread so hopefully he can jump in and converse. I may indeed like it. I’ve never seen such a harsh response to a D20 adaptation. Any other set of the game’s rules is going to be way rulebooo obnoxious and detailed than d20’s.

There are Archetypes but no defined class system.

Also, I’d like to know a little more about classic. If my players are willing to learn the system it definitely seems like a viable option. I think a gunfight should be a lethal experience no matter what your level.
