I understand how free-form character creation works and I like it but I also like classes too. It’s a setting that embraces genre staples, and it already divides characters by their various blessings, undeadenings, hoyles magicks or whathaveyou. You can have high powered games that cors rely on people being able to jump off mountains and take repeated punches in the face from creatures ten times their size.

When you can solve any mystery by summoning the murder victim’s ghost, figure out cire the culprit was by Linking History and an illusion spell and then sending a demon to haunt the killer’s dreams until he confesses, things get boring. You might not be give any encounters for the journey.

How many versions are there and are they that varied? But yes I also enjoyed it.

The only skills we shared were shooting, spellcasting and guts, and even then we had them at different levels. We went for 3 sessions without any combat, and many more without any major encounters. I highly doubt that I’ll be looking too much into classic though, a brief description of a round of it’s combat brings back the nightmares of Mech Warrior and spending an entire night getting through two rounds of combat. Is there no class system or is it just based off the edges and stuff you pick for your character?


Hey guys, I’m the DM for this Deadlands game.

However, there are a lot on adventures tied to specific places. All of them just limit the choices you can make, prune out the unique things about the way the game handles things, and give nothing in return except a familiar ruleset for people too lazy to learn a new system, even though that ruleset is completely unfitting to the setting.

I dunno, I guess it’s a matter of knowing that non-classed systems work just fine that I don’t often have to think about why I wouldn’t want to use a D20 variant. Or maybe he means as long as it doesn’t resemble 4th? Sort of a square peg in a round hole situation.

Alternatively, rather than picking the lesser of three evils, perhaps another system might work better for your group? If there are any that are actually decent, tell me.

My very first experience with the D20 System was in fact Deadlands D Hey guys, my group is planning on starting up a deadlands game. First, let me say that my only rulehook with Deadlands is the d20 variety. Just about all of the books had an adventure in the back, although there are a few specific major storyline books. I took that and changed the question to, how many ways to find something out can you think of?


Deadlands d20

Yeah, if Reloaded doesn’t work out we can go to D20 and see how it is. Deadlands rules are built in the theme of the Deadlands game. Deadlande it’s my innate love for the Dark Tower Series talking here but that Devil’s Tower trilogy sounds particularly interesting. Knowledge is power, after all. Why are Classes bad for Deadlands? Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Prime example being Monk levels beyond deadlanda or 3.

Why is D20 Deadlands terrible? [Archive] – Giant in the Playground Forums

Judging by the other threads on this forum though, D20 Deadlands gets beat up a lot because it’s so bad. I wasn’t saying anything about Savage Worlds. A good enough compromise, I think, though I’m not too familiar with it. I think a gunfight should be a lethal experience no matter what your level.

I brought it up to my DM and this is what he replied with: Give it your best shot and I’ll do my best to understand. Best game I ever played.
