This is the picture on the cover: Best game I ever played.
And Savage Worlds was originally intended as a spin off of Deadlands so it retains a lot of the flavor but in a new system. I understand how free-form character creation works and I like it but I also like classes too. A good enough compromise, I think, though I’m not too familiar with it.
I enjoy both of them and the players in both games have fun and that’s really why we play isn’t it? Just say away from the d20 version if you can, as said. There’s a bit of a learning dezdlands, but it quickly became second nature.
Deadlands rules are built in the theme of the Deadlands game. It also looks like DriveThruRPG has deadlahds as well, if you can’t find print versions cheaper somewhere. I guess what I’m really interested in is what about the game mechanics makes it unplayable? I also enjoyed it despite the occasional problem. However, I dunno about the rest of you, but it was also the 2nd gaming system I ever learned after the Call of Cthulhu version of BRP and I didn’t have any problems with it.
However, there are a lot on adventures tied to specific places. You spend points to gain your attributes, skills, and edges. Funny how you got on here before Steven did, Phil. Otherworld hit it right on the head.

Not to get too off topic but I agree with the fighter dip remark. Basically all the same capabilities within all the classes save for the flavor text accompanying it. But to get back on topic, I can see how it’s an advantage to build your characters from the ground up It gives a lot of flexibility that class levels can’t match.
Ok, so far, I’m seeing that D20 isn’t a viable option because it takes the flavor out of the game and deadlanvs boring correct? The Deadlands rules were so elegant and perfect for the theme.

We went for 3 sessions without any combat, and many more without any major encounters. It all depends on how its run. Sort of a square peg in a round hole situation. And I disagree that the game isn’t really dependent on the system because the system is the game.
Maybe it’s my innate love for the Dark Tower Series talking here but that Devil’s Tower trilogy deadlamds particularly interesting. You get what you want without the extra fluff. It’s kinda mix and match build your own hero kinda thing.
I’ve even heard multiple people say to never play it or “it doesn’t exist” so really it can’t be that good at all.
I dont know how to sum it up really As you say, the archetype thing isn’t that far off the vibe of Deadlands, but for somebody coming at it from a skill-based system mindset already, classes don’t add anything. Lacking the formal level system, my huckster could pick up a few ranks of Brawlin’ without having to spend one of his cor level slots on a “fighter” level or whatever I’ve not actually looked at the D20 rules, this is a guess, don’t hurt me.
It’s rulebook setting that embraces genre staples, and it already divides characters by their various blessings, undeadenings, hoyles magicks or whathaveyou. The were a mix of dice and playing cards. Classes basically do the same thing. Sometimes slow guys just get the drop on fast cors.
I guess all I have to do is wait to see which system we use. When I say too 4th edition, I’m referencing the oversimplification of the system.
