Deadlands, the Weird West

Deadlands was the system used for a short lived campaign. While great fun at times due to the very favor driven system that used poker cards and chips to bring the feel of the gambling wild west to the table. Sadly in the end the very thing that provided the fun turned out to be terribly flawed. The various probabilities behind poker hands is too steep of a curve, and is an unplayable mechanic in the long term. Sadly replacing that mechanic means that there is no real need of the rest of the system as it doesn't have anything really special to offer.

If we return to the setting, it will be after converting to HERO System or Age of Heroes.
