Deadlands The Weird West

Return to Savage Worlds

It's not an understatement to say that "Western Horror" wouldn't exist as a major RPG genre if not for Deadlands. It manages to blend "kitchen-sink fun" with genuine gruesome horror, supporting anything from realistic grizzled gunslingers to over-the-top hex-casters. If you've never played it, you're missing out.

This page is devoted to the SWADE-compatible Deadlands: The Weird West edition, released in 2020. Right now, it comprises house rules and official clarifications.

House Rules


Supernatural Attribute: This Edge raises the attribute (and its limit) by one die type, not two. It's still a great deal, as (A) it can be taken alongside the usual once-per-Rank attribute Advance and (B) it raises the maximum (generally to d12+1).
