Deadlands: The Weird West


Welcome to the Weird, Wild West!

The year is 1884. Folks from all over the world journey to the American frontier in search of opportunity, freedom, and wide-open spaces. But danger awaits. Some say there are more than just wild creatures on those lonely trails. Some say there are monsters, creatures born of the darkest fears given life by some insidious and overwhelming evil. Out here night seems a little darker, the distance between towns a little farther, and something changes the very landscape itself.

Such tough times also create great heroes, rising across the West to fight Evil’s cold grip with a trusty six-gun, sacred tomahawk, holy miracle, or arcane hex.

Think you’ve got what it takes to join them, amigo?

Deadlands is the premier Weird West roleplaying game of action-packed horror. It includes all the Edges, gear, infernal devices, and powers players need to blast the tarnation out of those creepy crawlies. For the Marshal there’s a comprehensive overview of the Weird West, an adventure generator, and enough rascals, varmints, and critters to keep a posse busy ’til doomsday!

Deadlands: The Weird West is a 192-page hardcover book, in our usual “graphic novel” size, and glorious, bloody, full-color throughout. This book requires the Savage Worlds core rules to play.


This version of Deadlands: The Weird West has been rewritten from the ground up and updated for the new Savage Worlds Adventure Edition.

Is this the newest book or is reloaded the newer ruleset?
I'm confused.

Is this the book for the players or the game master? Or both?
Also, where can I get the savage world core rulebook? Is it 100% needed?

Anyone know if the physical version of this has been released yet? Kinda debating buying this, or just waiting till the somewhat more appealing box set that comes with pdf's anyway is available. It's a little unclear to me on the pinnacle website. If it's about to be released I'll just wait for the physical box set to be available, but if it's still several months out I'll settle for pdf for now instead.

It's available on our site now, and in stores sometime in April. Thanks :)

You certainly can. :) I'd let the players use the new rules for their characters, use the new stats for monsters if they're in the core book, and run everything else the same. Should be SUPER easy. Happy New Year. :)

Is there/will there be a new Game Marshal's Guide in conjunction with the updated Deadlands for SWADE?

No, this book is for both players and GMs. Cheers!

The kickstarter is scheduled to be fulfilled in November. So is this the final version?
Customer avatar

We've moved that date, I'm afraid, but yes, this is the final version.

I think this was fixed quite a while back. We've given a preview of the first 32 pages. If you don't see them, please contact dtrpg Support. Thanks :)

I wonder if there will be a hard copy?

Yes, once it is completely finished. As Shane implies with the kickstarter link, DriveThruRPG will be updated with all the changes throughout the kickstarter. When complete, it'll be ready for store, shelves, and "deadTree edition" AKA finished hand holdable book.

Yes, it's back! And Deadlander than ever!

It's been a while, but Deadlands is now Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (SWADE) ready, and still getting better.
I can't wait for the final release!

Afraid we missed that date due to the size of the KS and a few pandemic-related reasons on our printer's end. Check the KS for updates. Thanks :)

Original electronic
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.
