New Orleans, 1935. The Depression makes each day uncertain, like a moral compass in hard times, and times have never been harder. The constant rain beats folks down like a fixed fight, and every schmuck with an ounce of authority, from your local beat cop to his honor the mayor himself, is as rotten as an old bag of apples sunk in the bayou.
Worst of all, things lurk in the shadows, and when life gets as dark as the waters of the Mississipi, some mooks get stupid enough to think conjuring them out of the shadows might just make things better.
And that’s when some sharp shamus, grizzled grifter, prizefighting palooka, or dangerous dame has to step in and let them know that no matter how bad things get, there are still a few hardboiled heroes ready to face monsters in the night.
Deadlands Noir—a pen-and-paper roleplaying game set in the world of Pinnacle Entertainment’s award-winning Deadlands universe—is now available to everyone, not just our Kickstarter backers. It includes new Edges, Hindrances, and powers, as well as new rules for handling detective work, the state of the Union and the CSA in the Depression era, a complete Plot Point campaign, and of course, more monsters and ghouls than you can shake a smoking .45 automatic at.
You can get the Deadlands Noir PDF format from us directly, from Studio 2 Publishing, or at DriveThruRPG. Our fulfillment partners at Studio 2 Publishing are also taking preorders for the printed book and have the Print-PDF Preorder Bundle available. The bundle gets you the PDF immediately, the printed book as soon as it’s available, and a price break—and with the world today, what palooka don’t need a price break!
