I went into reading this without any idea of what I would find, and for the most part I was quite happy and then I read the last town profiled, but lets start at the beginning.
This book starts off with published description of the four towns from the point of view of one of the residents or visitors. All of this is packed with hooks that can be used to start and drive a number of sessions of play as a posse explores the location and its surrounding area.
The last thing that the book contains are templates for various buildings that you could find in a boomtown. All boojtown which could be useful printed and used as default location maps if done on some type of card stock.
Impressions of Boomtowns
We also get a sheet of furniture to put in these locations that could also be printed and used. I thought all of the maps and the collection of room furnishings was definitely a nice touch in this book. This is a fairly standard cattle town, with the local cattle barons attempting to run roughshod over everyone who boomtowm in their way.
We also find that there are a couple of different abominations that are active in the region that will cause supernatural trouble. All in all, I think this is a pretty good starting location since most of the trouble setup is of the mortal variety.
The other thing that I liked about this is that this town was not documented in Last Sons. This town is set up with having to deal with the arrival of the Bayou Vermillion railroad and all that it brings deadands it.
Unlike the first town, this one has a fairly extensive write-up in the plot point campaign Bopmtown and a Hard Place. I liked this one though because it gives deadoands a bit of history on how the place ended up the way it was described in that book.
So again there will be plenty to do here as deadands. This town has a number of strange happenings, but they are not all as dangerous as they might seem. We have some internal struggles with the rail line, and a problem with bad luck.
We also have a church on cursed ground to deal with. This town does make an appearance in Last Sons dealands what is going on with the church is at least known, but there is still no solution.
I will not go into the details, but suffice it to say I loved this town and its secret. This final town is not covered in Stone and a Hard Placeso everything I read deadlanss was something new.
Just a note this town can and will probably eat any posse who is not paranoid enough, and yes this is my favorite of the boomtowns. I am a professional software tester, who has an interest in programming, computers, role-playing games, history, and reading in general.
This is my third attempt at keeping a blog, and I am going to try putting all of my thoughts in one place, and see how it rkles. View all posts by Hours without Sleep.
I am starting to boomttown an old school pre-Savage Worlds Deadlands classic game and I also recently picked up Boomtowns on pdf. The one thing that sorta bugs me: It mentions that Liberty has a stagecoach that arrives from Cheyenne once a week, and from Miles City twice a week.
But, any insight from a different perspective would be helpful! You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
