Deadlands: Memoirs of a Madman

Summary

Based on the table-top game Deadlands, this is the journal of Mr. Ebon Ie as he chronicles his journey to defeat Jasper Stone and his personal mission to hunt down the Reckoners. Back in 2011, my friends and I played a game called Deadlands, a table-top RPG based in the "Weird West," an alternate 1877. Supernatural phenomena has caused the Civil War to drag on longer than it should, dead men returning to life, and the discovery of the new mineral Ghost Rock. We were a posse of six that set out to defeat Stone, and by the end of it all, two of us lived to tell the tales. Five years later, Deadlands was picked up again with some new players who's goal is to track down Ebon's journal and continue his work of defeating the Reckoners.

Forward, December 9, 1878

It is a common thing for a man of stature to carry around written accounts of his exploits, especially one that has seen such things as I have. I do not pretend to have the penmanship of a writer, but the experiences I have had in this queer world is enough to make most storytellers green with envy. Here, in the bindings of leather and snakeskin, I have collected all of my journal entries. They won’t amount to much more than a penny dreadful or dime-store bauble, but what I have to say must be said before I die—if I die.

These entries are the accounts of my family, my posse, and the many acquaintances along the way that made it possible to find and defeat Stone. I learned many dark secrets about our world. I learned about the Manitou, the Maze, and the truth behind Ghost Rock; all of this keeps taking me closer to learning the true identity of the Reckoners. I was a fool to take this mission, but I’ve come too far to give up now. With any luck, this journal will end up in the dime store. If I don’t come back from the Edge, perhaps someone will be able to take my findings in these pages and finish the job.

--Ebon Ie
