The year is 1876. Thirteen years earlier, an Indian shaman seeking vengeance released the manitous, evil demons who have spread supernatural energy throughout the West. California no longer exists-but a devastating earthquake has left in its place the Great Maze, where small-time prospectors and big-time mining outfits alike seek ghost rock, a mysterious fuel more valuable than gold.
Deadlands Weird West is the original setting of the Deadlands universe and the Doomtown CCG. It is set in the late 1800's, where supernatural creatures roam the wild west.
