While we finalize all the details behind this here curtain, we wanted to share with you all exactly what we mean when we say “bigger and better.”
First off, Doomtown has always been a part of the Deadlands universe, but generally it has kept to its own sandbox. Now, with this next expansion, the game is directly, unequivocally, and officially tied to the entire Weird West!
Our previous title, “Tales From the Epitaph,“ didn’t really convey this significant change, so we’ve renamed it There Comes a Reckoning. You’ll see all the major Deadlands adversaries in the game including the four servitors: Reverend Grimme, Darius Hellstromme, Stone, and of course the one who started it all… Raven.*
We’ve also done more than just offer another Saddle Bag or Pine Box… We’ve created the TRUNK to help you house and organize your ENTIRE collection! This sturdy, heavy duty box not only contains There Comes a Reckoning, it also holds all your other cards, plus it comes with dividers to help you keep all six factions from quarreling with each other while you’re away. We’ll be sure to post some pics (inside and outside) of this bad boy soon!
When it comes time to support the Kickstarter, you’ll be able to pledge for just the cards, or for the deluxe Trunk, as you see fit, pardner!
Not only will you get a phenomenal new expansion and a heavy duty box to store everything in, to better integrate with the setting of the Deadlands roleplaying game, we’re including a gorgeous, full-color sourcebook for Doomtown: Reloaded with background and stats for the most interesting rascals, varmints, and critters found in the game… as well as featuring Ivor’s final stand on the cover, gloriously rendered by artist David Hammond.
And finally, we’re also including a complete copy of the rules, updated to the latest edition, featuring the most recent FAQ, and lavishly illustrated with some of the best art Doomtown has to offer!
We’ll let you all know the launch date just as soon as we nail down a few final details, but trust us… It won’t be much longer!
*For Deadlands RPG fans, this set comes before the events described in the Servitor Plot Point Campaigns. We’ll reflect those events as our timeline catches up in future updates.
