So those of whom who have played or know what Deadlands is, go ahead and skip to the .
Deadlands is a Tabletop RPG which takes place in the United State's Wild West era. There's a catch, though. An evil force has created strange creatures running about and frightening everyone, causing misery and strife across the frontier. This has changed the United State's history in the following ways, other then the obvious fact that werewolves, zombies and other things exist:
California is torn to shards from a massive Earthquake (The Great Quake of 68), causing it to be left to nothing but fractured islands. The ocean that flows along it is called The Maze. This earthquake has revealed a new ore, which burns much brighter and more efficent then coal. It is called Ghost Rock because the smoke from it looks like spirits, but this has been the cause of many mad scientist gizmos.
Rail Barons have been promised a vast reward by the USA/CSA (more on that in a moment) if they can make a rail that stretches across the entire state. This isn't a race among the various barons: it's out right war! Several tracks are along the West, all of them competing with each other.
The strife and misery is not just from the supernatural. The Civil War has been prolonged for a good 18 years! Plenty of battlefields, in the East and in the West.
There are more subtle hints, but this is the grand scale of it all.
I want to build the entire Weird West United States. to scale. This means lots of cities, locations, deserts, mountains, rails, canyons...the works. I need help, though. That's where you come in.
I do have maps and PDFs for the place, so if you need them, I can send them to you. If someone has already made the United States, sans buildings, then that would be awesome of you to link me to it! Any other help is appreciated! :smile.gif:
