Sorry for the repeat topic, but I could not edit the previous posts topic. I went ahead and made this topic a bit more general so I can use it for my SW one shots.

I am looking to learn the SW system (with the hope of running DLR: The Flood or maybe Stone in a Hard Place after my current 5E campaign wraps up in a few months). I figure the best way to learn is to do. So I will be running a short DLR one shot next Sunday (1/14/2017), at 5 PM Pacific n Time (using one of the premade adventures).

I have the Ultimate License; so you can use the free demo. The voice software will be Team Speak 3.

I made some Novice premades (mostly to learn the system) that are available to ensure we hit the ground running. I have the adventure deck active along with a basic implementation of the more recent DLR arcane backgrounds. I will try to get the free DLR adventure deck cards implemented as well (I already have the graphics done).

Players will get 20 XP to spend on the character at the beginning (along with purchasing gear with any additional money the character has). The server will go up at 4 pm PST. We will start play promptly at 5 PM.

If you are interested, please sign up on the calendar here:

I will message the 5 folks who make it into the campaign with the server alias and the teamspeak server.

I get an error when I click on the link

We just need a couple more desperados and we'll have a full posse.

Cool. Will we get to see the pre-gens before the game or are you waiting until the game for us to see them?

Thank you for letting me create the bounty hunter character. I think the character is going to be great, though I might need to look at the weapons and make a few changes.

I plopped a couple peacemakers on her. I will make sure to have the server up an hour or so before game time in case you want to make more changes.

Ok, thank you. I am running my Streets of Bedlam game tonight and I will point my players to this thread and see if I can get a couple more players for you

I'm no stranger to savage worlds, but new to specific settings i.e. deadlands. I'll probably be able to join this sunday game. Not the biggest fan of pregen characters, but I'm totally willing to work with you on that.

p.s. hi daedalus

I posted all over my Google Plus advertising this game. I got you one player, hopefully I can get you the other two you need to fill the game.

I am looking forward to playing

Thanks for the help and the enthusiasm, Daedelus. I will ask my 5E players if they are interested as well.

I will be running one of the premade adventures since I am a bit new to the system but it looks like a fun one.

Round 2!

Alright, I ran my first SW one-shot recently. I want to further familiarize myself with the system so I can run a Deadlands Reloaded campaign in a few months (its a great setting!). Since its so hard to find a SW game, I'll just run another one shot in a couple weeks - Saturday, February 3rd 2018. The game will start at around 5pm PST and go for a few hours.

After reading through a couple of the plot points and pouring over the rules changes made in the recent Flash Gordon supplement, I have some setting rules I'll be using. Many of these won't really come into play in the one-shot but I will link them anyways. I added in arcane backgrounds that were added after the DLR core book was released (so, Metal Mages, Hexslingers, Updated Blessed/Voodooists, etc). I cut the Guts skill since it just seemed like a skill tax. I also mucked about with the skill list after reading through some of the official plot points.

We will use TeamSpeak3 for voice comms. We will be using premades (without editing them this time) but there will be a wide selection. We will also be using the Adventure Deck.

I have the Ultimate License. You can play with the free demo.

Here is a link to the game's calendar page.

Thanks for the interest but after running several one shots, I think will pass on Savage Worlds for now. I ran it to see how the system felt and its not quite the feel I am looking for (too many modifiers and the like for me).
