Ring Side Report-RPG Review of Colonel Bull's Body

Originally posted at www.throatpunchgames.com, a new idea every day!

Product- Colonel Bull's Body System- Savage Worlds/Deadlands Producer- Dragonlaird Gaming Price- $7.99 here https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/376305/Colonel-Bulls-Body?affiliate_id=658618 TL; DR-A great intro to Deadlands. 98%

Basics- THE DEAD WALK! A friend of yours has died, but now some see horrors off in the distance. You don’t care either way as getting his body back for burial nets you a massive pay day. Can you find his body and get your money?

Mechanics or Crunch- Solid work here for DeadLands. There is investigation, combat, and roleplaying in equal measure here so all three pillars of a good session are on display. This is just good, well done crunch. 5/5

Theme or Fluff- More solid work here by Dragonlaird for their story. My one, very slightly negative point is that it's predictably Deadlands. There is always some evil sorcerer guy off-screen doing a bad. That makes this Deadlands, but it could be a bit too predictable for your hardcore Deadlands fan as not much comes out of left field. 4.75/5

Execution- Dragonlaird excels again with their making of a nearly flawless book. Hyperlinks, layout, text size, scannability, art-everything is just on point. My one issue is cost. It's 8 bucks. Not horrible, but it's that much for about one solid or two shorter four hour sessions. But, you are getting what you pay for with this one. 4.9/5

Summary- I’ve always wanted to get deeper into Deadlands. It's an interesting world, and Savage Worlds is a fantastic RPG system. Colonel Bull's Body is an excellent intro adventure for both. It’s got classic Deadlands themes and solid Savage World mechanics. Your older Deadlands fans might not get as much out of it, but for those looking for a good intro or a solid session, this would be a great one to pull out for game night. The price is a bit high, but you are getting what you pay for with this product in terms of art, design, and layout. Another great product by Dragonlaird. 98%
