Take a tour of the less-traveled Weird West with your Epitaph correspondent Phineas P. Gage for the first three Deadlands Trail Guides now compiled into one volume for ease of reference.
In Trail Guide: South o’ the Border, visit beautiful Mexico. Bask in the sun as centuries-old hatred festers in the midst of a three-sided civil war.
In Trail Guide: Great Northwest, you’ll see the snow has its own beauty. But in this land gripped by Famine, you might give your left arm for some jerky, and that might be what it’s used for! When a war between the unnatural beasts in the woods threatens to wipe humanity from the region, will your posse be up to the challenge?
Finally, the Trail Guide: Weird White North takes you to the tundra of Alaska and British Columbia, a land locked in ice north of the amazing Winterline, a fence made by Hellstromme Industries to hold back the cold itself! But something more sinister, more malevolent than mere winter is being held in check…for now!
Each Trail Guide offers you a closer look at the people, places, and—perhaps most important—things you’ll see in each region. And don’t forget the mini-Plot Point Campaigns and Savage Tales in each, as well. You’re bound to have fun or die tryin’!
Deadlands Trail Guides, Volume 1 is now available for preorder. Preorder the printed book or get the PDF (from the Pinnacle PDF store, Studio 2 Publishing, or DriveThruRPG).

The Weird West is a big place filled with big men, big ideas, and big…things…
The new terrantula two-pack brings that home in a horribly skitterific way. There’s not much “mini” about spiders the size of ponies—tarantulas so big they’re named after fear itself—other than being made of metal and ready to use for your gamin’ tabletop.
If you’ve got a hankerin’ to investigate more of what Mother Unnatural has to offer, be sure to check out Reaper’s full Savage Worlds miniature line. If you don’t, you’ll never know what’s out there…until it’s too late!
The Weird West is a tough place to be alone, and sometimes you need a hand. Good news, amigo! We’ve got you covered!
The new Deadlands Weapons and Accessories pack brings you a set of replacement hands and bits to help you customize your Deadlands minis—heck, any minis, really—exactly the way you want ’em.
Need a gun? How about eight? From pistols to rifles to mad science, you got it. Melee weapons? Books? Cards? All there, partner. All there.
If you don’t want to make your posse face the best-armed bunch of animated hands ever, be sure to check out Reaper’s full Savage Worlds miniature line for things to customize. You make the world what you want, why not do the same to your minis?
Hero Lab—the award-winning character creation software—has added support for Deadlands: Reloaded—the award-winning RPG of the Weird West. This is the second setting for Savage Worlds that Hero Lab has made available, joining The Savage World of Solomon Kane.
Did we mention that both of those setting files are free downloads? That’s right, absolutely free.
So see what everyone’s talking about and make some spiffy characters of your own: check out Hero Lab for Savage Worlds today!
We’re down to the wire with the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter campaign, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. A large part of our Kickstarter plan was to gauge fan interest in the new setting. You fully funded the project in about three hours and have chewed through every stretch goal we’ve put out there, so I think it’s safe to say that you’re interested!
Speaking of stretch goals, we’re not done yet. You’ve already exceeded our content goals for the setting, but we thought there was still a little more we could give you. Check out the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter Updates for details on stretch goals for the last 48 hours. If you’re new to the Kickstarter, you can also find a recap of all the updates so far as well as all four parts of the illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy. [Update: You can also get the illustrated audio drama from Shane’s YouTube channel!]
If you want to really get into the setting, and I mean really get into it, we’ve added eight more Hardboiled backer slots to the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter campaign. At that level, you can become a real name in an unreal world. Beat feet if you’re interested buddy—those things go faster than a get-away driver on the lam!
And be sure to listen to Episode 64 of the Atomic Array podcast with special guest John Goff, lead author for Deadlands Noir. It’s their first show dedicated to Savage Worlds, and they get John to talk about the system, its origins, Deadlands Noir and the Kickstarter campaign, and even his days as a professional interrogator.
By any gauge, this project has been a wild success. We’re humbled by your outpouring of support, excited and energized by your enthusiasm, and really looking forward to turning our attention to development. You have our sincerest thanks.
Last week, we gave you downloadable wallpapers of the cover art for the upcoming Hell on Earth: Reloaded. While that setting might be full of heartache and misery, our web site isn’t.
By popular request, we’ve made more wallpapers available on the Hell on Earth: Reloaded Downloads page for all those wide-screen monitors out there. Enjoy your fancy technology while it lasts, partner. The day of reckonin’ is a-comin’, and maybe—just maybe—sooner than you think…
With just over a week left in our first Kickstarter campaign, Deadlands Noir, you’ve nearly met all our stretch goals, including expanding the setting with the Deadlands Noir Companion to Chicago, Lost Angels, and Shan Fan!
Visit the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter page for today’s updates and hear the fourth and final installment of the illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy.
If you missed Friday’s update, be sure to read Update #8 to hear about Deadlands Noir at Origins and see Cheyenne’s illustration of the technical evolution of the lightning gun!
You might think it cruel to whet your appetite like this, but you don’t know cruel…not yet, leastways. When a man can’t cross the desert without worrying about gettin’ his ride—and hisself—cut for parts, when the world is so irradiated that spirits are mutatin’, when there’s no hope on the burnin’ horizon, that’s a cruel place to be. Hell on Earth is coming, and this is just the beginning.
No, literally. Hell on Earth: Reloaded is coming. Not today, not tomorrow, and not any time we’re going to name right now, but watch here for more details in the months ahead.
And this really is just the beginning. Specifically, we’re giving you the cover art from the new book as downloadable wallpapers. Visit the Hell on Earth: Reloaded Downloads page to pick a size suited to you.
You best start gettin’ ready now, though. When things fall from the sky, worlds change forever…
We’re right into the half-way mark on our first Kickstarter campaign, Deadlands Noir, and the enthusiasm remains overwhelming. This morning, our stretch goals were like shell casings in a highway gunfight—all used up and behind us!
Unlike some of the back-bayou judges, we wouldn’t just leave you hangin’. Check out the Deadlands Noir Kickstarter page for today’s updates, including the third installment of our illustrated audio drama Hardboiled in the Big Easy and our new stretch goals. If you need a hint, just remember that the world might not turn out to be as small as you thought, but that probably means there’s more trouble out there with your name on it.
For anyone that missed it, be sure to read John Goff’s Update #6: Mystery and Investigation from last Friday for a little insight into Deadlands Noir and his own murky PI past.
