[Deadlands] Original vs. Savage Worlds edition?

Post by Havard » Thu Jul 16, 2015 8:15 pm

From this Deadlands thread I learned that there are a few fans of this Weird West setting here on The Piazza.

There are two versions of Deadlands out there, one with the original system and one called Deadlands: Reloaded which uses the Savage Worlds system.

Which one do you prefer and why?

I own the Savage Worlds version and I generally like that system, but I'd be interested in hearing merits about the original Deadlands RPG. :)

Sorry, we only have the Classic version -- it is a very flavorful design, with its use of poker cards and chips.
