Deadlands Night Train 25th Anniversary is LIVE (undead!) on Kickstarter

John Goff’s legendary Deadlands adventure comes to Savage Worlds Adventure Edition!

Night Train is a tabletop roleplaying game adventure for Deadlands: the Weird West using Savage Worlds Adventure Edition core rules.

The Kickstarter campaign runs from Noon Eastern October 3, 2023 to 8pm Eastern November 2, 2023. This is the 33rd Kickstarter for Pinnacle Entertainment Group.

Deadlands. The original Weird West roleplaying game. The name itself conjures scenes of drifters shooting it out with unliving horrors across the dusty plains of the American West. Twenty-five years ago, one acclaimed adventure encapsulated this promise so completely, it became legend itself: John Goff’s Night Train!

Our latest Kickstarter brings this malevolent masterpiece back into the moonlight, completely updated for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition and boasting gorgeous new art and accessories to bring the fun to (un)life!

If you’ve never played this classic and much beloved adventure, this is your chance to jump aboard! If you’ve ridden the rails before and are brave enough to return, you’ll find all-new extras that make this the definitive experience.

All aboard for the adventure of an unlifetime! 

Ask not for whom the whistle blows…

This is your chance to hop aboard the infamous “TPK” scenario–and its sequels–for the first time, or ride these wretched rails again with all new updates and extras that make this the definitive experience.

The Night Train 25th Anniversary Boxed Set contains:

A 72-page book with the original Night Train adapted for Savage Worlds, its sequel For Whom the Whistle Blows, an all-new adventure, The Bank Job from the master himself, and a special afterword featuring John Goff’s notes and memories celebrating this legendary adventure.

Full-color pawns for an army of creepy bloodsuckers, the innocent townsfolk they wish to feed on, the villains trying to capitalize on the carnage, and the hellish Night Train itself so its locomotive and cars can roll down the tracks of any Deadlands battle map… or get combined with other train cars as we add them!

Two double-sided fold-out maps, featuring the three rail towns featured in the book and a connecting spur where a posse can catch up to the train (or where the villains might camp to admire their handiwork). The maps can be placed side-to-side to make new towns or extend the rails for even bigger, bloodier action.

Six dangerous new Archetypes to send to the slaughter instead of your regular heroes.

Four Wanted Posters. The towns along the rails have plenty going on before the mythical Night Train makes its fateful stops. Law dogs have a chance to collect bounties or see that justice catches up to these outlaws, one way or another.

Channel the spirit of John Goff himself with a stack of Toe Tags to memorialize your posse members that end up in Boot Hill!

A special commemorative Wild Die, featuring a locomotive themed “6” face for Acing.

Pack your bags and prepare to face the unrelenting terror of the Night Train coming to Kickstarter on Tuesday, October 3rd.

 “Tickets please!” ⚰️
