This animated tabletop story comes from when I ran a game of Deadlands using the Savage World system. My trio of players had to fight their way out into the Weird West, contend with Brother Dalton's Reverends, monsters of the wilds and a reanimated fossil. Enjoy!
End Music and Sting during the fight is from:

Man that is a..._very_ uncomfortable roleplay setting, gotta be honest! The way it kind of paints the natives as, er...demonic? The bad guys for not wanting to be, you know...colonized. Big oof.

I find it hilarious that he used crosses and reverends, when members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints use niether of those.

"Prospector Jenkins" is someone who wanted to roleplay the version of Easy Pete from Fallout: New Vegas who was bad with dynamite.

At 6:34 I was convinced the Gambler said "you people are Democrats".. I suppose these days it is a synonym to "hypocrites".

Wouldn't have exactly fit in this universe, the Democratic party didn't start until after the Civil War Im pretty sure...and quite obviously in Deadlands its still going. And may not ever end...

This one (the original version too) has got to be one off my favorites of yours. A big part is probably the reverend-cultists since I am practically obsessed with crazy fictional cults. "And to flee from such a voice, one must be... OF THE DEVIL!!"

i'm just wondering why anyone would take Grimm Servant of Death. Was there some bonus upside perk he got from it? because otherwise, why would you go at character creation and see an ability that says you hit your allies 16.66% of the time and say, "yeah, i totally need that"? and then specialize in weapons of mass destruction? It's as if he saw that synergy there and took that combo specifically because he wanted that to happen. and really, i dunno why everyone was so shocked when it did happen. . .

Step 1) Wear at all time an explosive vest Step 2) Make the trigger of the vest a dead man's switch. Literally, as in he dies, the vest explode Step 3) Immortal Jenkins since a new reality where he didn't die is created !

I created a new item based of this. This would be an item to use an act of desperation or a last resort Coin of Fate "Test your luck" Roll a d4. If the result was even, you live and you get what you want (probably kill an enemy), if the result was odd, you die

After playing in a deadlands campaign myself I can confirm that even without grim servant of death, any nearby characters or party members having explosives is practically an omen of bad luck. I mean in the very first session I did for deadlands, one of my party members thought it was a good idea to use dynamite on a train, near the fuel cart. Which derailed not only the train but the entire campaign up to that point, because we crashed it in the middle of nowhere, with no way to resume the originally planned story, and having the closest town being in the center of a massive deadlands. Which if we went to would basically be like walking into our graves as new players.
