Deadlands!

Post by Komrade Kharloth on Wed Oct 19, 2011 2:41 am

Any of you colossal non-nerd gaming faggots ever hear Deadlands, the single greatest and most ass-kicking setting in the history of all forms of video games, books and film?

No? that's what I thought.

If anyone's interested, think of it as The wild west meets fallout and the baby is delivered by the physical form of all things awesome.

I've heard of it, heard good things about it, but I don't really know what it is. S

Sell it to me, Karly!

Well, I could just copypasta the intro (which gives a fairly good picture of the world at the time) or just give my own version (less awesome, but less to read)

Fine. Story begins with a creepy indian shaman named Raven who gathers up a buncha "lost sons" who are the last surviving members of various tribes and promises them a reckoning against the white man if they help him.

He leads them to an old Injun burial ground in new england, and performs some kind of ritual that opens a door between worlds and they travel to "The Hunting Grounds" (spirit world, lotta nasty shit) now either Raven tricked the poor bastards, or was just a fool himself, he released a bunch of spirits called Manitous on the world (injun word for demon) and they started raising hell for all people, not just whites.

Raven and the lost sons pulled their trick on July 3rd, 1863, same day as the battle of Gettysburg. As the Union troops started piling up their dead, some of 'em crawled out and started doing not so nice things, meanwhile some sort of creature was slaughtering it's way through the Confederate field hospital. Turns out the manitous quite literally feed on fear, and they bring it back to The Reckoners, who are kind of their spirit masters. So now you get things like zombies, werewolves, vampires, ghosts etc and a whole host of new monsters appearing in the world.

That's it for now, I gots class to attend, post the rest when I get back.

That does sound cool as hell. Reminds me of some of the MTG storyline.

All right.

With all the weird shit appearing seemingly over night, both governments decided to set up some sort of investigation into what the hell was going on. The south gave the Texas Rangers that task, while the north hired the Pinkerton Detecive agency, both soon became CIA esque operatives throughout both Americas, shooting at each other as much as they shoot at the paranormal.

5 years after The Reckoning as it's called, another cataclysmic event happened, The Great Quake. Californa had largely been left alone by the war, but all that was about to change. An earthquake the likes of which the world has never seen completely shattered the land. It quickly became a massive maze of mesas and canyons filled with sea water and all the horrific magical creatures that came with it, all the cities were smashed to splinters and people died in droves. It looked like Californa was done for, and would cease to become even relevant. However, a few lucky souls peered into the cracked land and found a previously undiscovered mineral.

Ghost Rock.

It burns five times hotter than coal and a hundred times longer. Every scientist in the world cummed like a horse when news reached them of this new godlike fuel source. Did I mention that it glows and sounds like the wailing of the damned when burning?

They soon put it to use, ghost rock powered weapons and machines began to dominate the war back east, and there was a massive demand for it. People down on their luck are flocking to the great maze to try their luck as ghost rock miners. Meanwhile, there is also great demand for a railway system to connect either government to the great maze.

Thus begins the great rail wars. 6 major railways are all racing at breakneck speed to the great maze, the first one who makes it will be rich beyond their wildest dreams. They'd probably already be there if they didn't spend most of their time sabotaging and shooting up their compeitiors.

Both the north and south have laid claim to it, and are sending small armies and fleets of ships to secure their claim, even Mexico is looking at the maze with lust in it's eyes and getting an army together.

With all the ghost rock and monsters in the world, it was inevitable that magic soon return as well. Hucksters (wizards) have started popping up. Apparently there's this book called Hoyle's Book of Games, which contains secret messages and codes hidden in it, if one can decipher them, they can learn to turn people's innards the wrong way out. BTW, they cast spells using playing cards.

Also, the Injuns deserve a mention.

With all this butt fuck insanity and mayhem racking the continent, the injuns decided that this was their time. In the dakotas, the Sioux rose up in rebellion and formed the sioux nations, the Union decided to recognize them as a nation rather than have a herd of pissed off natives raiding their outposts and railways every other day.

In the south, the coyote confederation has sprung up, mirroring the Sioux Nations, the confederates didn't give a damn and actually managed to form an alliance with them, The Coyote Confederation raids the shit outta the north, and in return they get whiskey, guns and other such shit.

I can go into more detail, although you're gonna have to ask for specifics. My summary really doesn't do it justice, it's like fallout, you can try and describe it, but only when you play it do you see how awesome it is.

I just don't really have much of an imagination. As far as I'm concerned, I'm still sitting at my computer.

That's why I absolutely love Dawn of War, but have never bothered with the figurines. I just can't really visualize it unless it's totally spelled out for me.
