Post 'em up! What covers get you excited?

message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Ok, this is the one that started it all for me. And I am more than happy to discuss the book/game with anyone interested !

I'm sad I've never gotten to play a real game of Deadlands. Some friends and I tried online years ago. Unfortunately, our DM was...less than stellar. At everything.

But yes, the Deadlands books all have great covers and the player's guide with Stone is still awesome. I think Brom did that cover too. It tends to stand out from the rest in just how good it is.

Brom did do the cover. I believe the story of how Shane Hensley came up with the game was that he went to DragonCon in the early 90s and Brom had work on display. Shane saw a piece of Brom's, a vampire in a Confederate uniform, that he just couldn't get out of his mind and it inspired him to come up with what has become the archetype Weird Western roleplaying game. I think at that point it was just good manners to ask him to do the first cover! I love the setting, even updated to their new Savage Worlds rules; fun system, real easy to learn, especially for new players. And I'm a GM of many years experience (yes, I'm a nerd). I hope some day to revive my skills.

Brom's good.

Here's a couple of my favorite covers.

Dead Man's Hand: Five Tales of the Weird West

I would certainly hope an author liked their own covers.

I've been wanting to read this and the cover to me is just so well done and so badass looking.

Those are both cool covers. Skin Medicine is pretty awesome and chilling.

That was such a weird comic. Boobs and vampires and "gunslinger bikini armor."

Also, I'm pretty sure than 99% of the time, that page NEVER sources the art. Always source the art.
