Deadlands Noir


New Orleans, 1935. Whoever called this “the Big Easy” sure got that one wrong. Things are tough all over. Honest work is hard to find, and even dishonest jobs are getting scarce. The one thing that’s not in short supply is trouble. From shady thugs to crooked cops to Mafia soldiers, there’s plenty of characters out there looking to give an honest Joe a hard time.

And that’s not the worst of it.

There are stories going round about things that go bump in the night. Things you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley on a darker night. And those stories aren’t just coming from rummies or saps who read that Epitaph rag.

Still, there are a few heroes left in the concrete jungle. Steely-eyed private dicks, fast-talking grifters, wild-eyed inventors, and shadowy houngans still struggle against the encroaching darkness. With enough moxie—and more than a little luck—they might just be enough to turn the tide.

Deadlands Noir is a pen-and-paper roleplaying game set in the world of Pinnacle Entertainment’s award-winning Deadlands universe. 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.

Deadlands Noir is not a complete game. It requires the Savage Worlds core rules to play. The PDF is fully bookmarked with a hyperlinked table of contents and index. The PDF is also layered to serve as its own printer-friendly version. Full color, full-size (8.5″ x 11″ pages), 144 pages.

Please make this available as PoD. The quality is perfectly fine and much MUCH better than not having it at all, or trying to read on a 3x5 phone screen!

Yo, Pinnacle! Could you possibly make this available to buy as a POD being that the original run of the hardcover is now OOP?

Hi Esmeralda! We don't think the quality for POD is quite there yet based on the complaints we've had before when we've tried it, but there are quite a few hardbacks out there still in the wild. Golems Gate in Texas, for example, has some for sale, and would love to them to you. Thanks :)

Golem's Gate only allows in-store shopping and since I live in Arizona and do not have the means to travel out of state at this time, which means I have a snowballs chance in The Abyss of nabbing a copy. I also have no friends in that area to help me out, which is why I need a better option to add this to my collection in print.

Noble Knight Games has it, but I would like to avoid shelling out $160+ to add this to my collection in print.

Yikes! I'm surprised Golem's Gate won't ship it. I do see one on Amazon right now for $34 though. And hello, fellow Arizonan! Hope we get to play together sometime :)

Is there a preferred order to run the modules, or are they all stand alone?
Also, are there any plans to sell the entire set at a discount?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
