Gotta love free stuff, especially of this quality. Might be time to dust off some Deadlands, just as an excuse to use the characters.

Cool stuff. High Quality.
I only detected the old guy<s saber should do damage of d4+d5, because the weapons die is limited to the strenght die.

I was somewhat confused by the thoughness stats (especially the big guy, with brawny), maybe you should somewhere note down the FINAL toughness stat. for example 6(1) like in most official books. Somewhat quicker in game.


Awesome. My gang of six will get together for Blood Drive and we will use your characters to jump right into the action.
Kudos, sir!

The links appears to have broken. Any chance of getting this file reuploaded?

Ah! Clicking on the image gets me the file, but clicking on “click here” does not. I’m guessing you uploaded a replacement version and missed updating one of the links.

I’ve had a quick glance at them and they look good, now to read them properly.


    Thanks for letting me know! I have fixed the “click here” link and everything should be working properly now. Enjoy!
