Pinnacle is obviously a big fan of the Plot Point campaigns, but with Deadlands Reloaded they opted to do multiple PPCs, focusing on The Big Bads that had been looming around since Deadlands Classic.giving the PCs the chance to stuff it in the faces of the guys once deemed 'unkillable' in the original Deadlands run. The Flood is the first of those.and the image on the cover gives away the primary antagonist: The Reverend Grimme. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW: This review is based off of the and not the PDF, though the book is available in both formats. The cover price is $36.99, while the is $19.99. Like all of the Reloaded books, The Flood is gorgeous, and nearly 200 pages of information. The inside of the book includes a map of The Maze (the remnants of California), complete with notable spots in the PPC. Like many Deadlands books (and Savage Worlds books, especially by Pinnacle), the book is split into Player's and Marshal's sections.
Free download program aspekte mittelstufe deutsch b2 pdf creator. Deadlands: Reloaded! (2006; Hardcover); Deadlands: Coffin Rock (2008; Softcover); Deadlands: The Flood, Plot Point Campaign (2009; PDF, Hardcover). Hey guys from the Internet, I'll be running a Deadlands Reloaded campaign in Savage Worlds, and I bought a few books, including the pdf for the 3 published plot point campaigns for the setting: The Flood, The Lost Sons, and Stone and a Hard Place (I also got some of the adventure pdf, including Coffin Rock, Guess who's coming to Donner, Ghost.
The Player's Section begins with a Tombstone Epitah, moving the Deadlands timeline up to September 1879, noting the Great Rail Wars are picking up steam, that Santa Anna is moving agressive moves towards The Great Maze, and that The Maze is starving out. It's a great primer for the events of the PPC.
This is followed up with about four pages worth of new Edges and Hindrances, starting with new Martial Arts Edges. Many of these already existed in Deadlands Classic but were not carried over to Reloaded until now (like The Cup Runneth Over, which makes your chi VERY noticeable). There is also a sidebar geared at explaining how to use Trappings to fill out some of the 'missing' powers (with some advice that I found useful, as one of my players loves playing a Martial Artist).
There are a few non Martial Arts Edges (like Captains, for those who operate Maze Runners) and Nose for the Rock (allowing you to 'sniff out' Ghost Rock), but the bulk is definitely focused on fleshing out Martial Artists. The equipment section also adds new martial arts weapons (like the Flying Claw, which the PC mentioned above likes using), as well as a selection of boats and a few oddities like Diving Suits (which can have bursting helmets). The best part about the Player's Section?
It's available as a separate. You JUST want the new Edges? Go download them. You want everyone to read the Tombstone Epitaph? Go download the Player's section. Next.the Marshal's Section. This start's with a look at Famine's Domain: What used to be California.
There is some flavor here, including a page full of some of Grimme's favorite 'teachings' from the Bible.many of which are Bible verses, many of which are brutal subversions and twisted additions by Grimme. This section also recounts the tale of Reverend Ezekiah Grimme and the horrible monstrosity that now wears his face. Next are the Setting Rules: First off, stuff is a lot more expensive here. Second of all, no matter what, Famine will be gnawing at their bellies. Some diseases are provided, as well as Ghost Rock Fever. The Maze has hazards like riptides and whirlpools, and rules are included for rockslides, earthquakes, thunderstorms and even blizzards(!). Strange Locales provides more indepth detail of the regions of The Great Maze, providing Fear Levels and price modifiers for the regions, as well as sidebars pointing out the page numbers for Savage Tales specific to given regions.
Random encounter tables are provided to supplement the ones found in the Reloaded book (or Marshal's book, if you have the separate versions), as well a page long sidebar detailing just what happens to the region after the titular Flood wipes out a chunk of the region. Adventures in the Maze includes modifiers and charts for actually traversing The Maze, including a table featuring the distances from port to port, and also including an Adventure Generator!
