Deadlands Classic: Hucksters & Hexes


For hucksters, poker is a way of life. It's not just a means of making a living (although it can be mighty useful that way, too). No, it's their gateway to the Hunting Grounds,a nightmare realm of arcane power and their means of manipulating the demonic manitous that call that place home. That's the true font of their sorcerous powers.

Hucksters & Hexes is packed with all sorts of vital information to make the life of a huckster a whole lot more interesting. There's the tale of Hoyle's Book of Games, the tome that launches every cardslinger down a slippery slope toward enlightenment or damnation plus new edges and relics to broaden any huckster's horizons, and a whole new way to help them cast their deadly spells. It's also got rules for tempests (a new kind of hexslinger), tricks (a new kind of hex), and descriptions of over 100 hexes! There's top-secret stuff for the Marshal, too, revealing the darkest secrets of the hucksters, their friends, and their foes, plus a full-scale adventure suitable for any posse. So go ahead. Pick a card. Just hope you don't pick wrong.

This book is a must if any of your PC's are playing hucksters. It offers back ground information on how Hoyle wrote his book of spells, and explains how a huckster would go about learning new spells. The expanded backlash table gives the Marshel more [...]

This is a very useful and I would say essential addition to the Deadlands roleplaying game. It expands the rules for spellcasters, including extra hexes and a deeper look in to the history behind the archetype. It also contains a rather good looking [...]

A must have for any serious huckster. The tricks mechanism is great, and the metaplot and potential storylines introduced are invaluable. The only downside is the adventure: though wonderfully named, the tale's a little flat. [...]

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.
