Deadlands Reloaded: The Weird West
It’s one of the hottest places on earth. It might even be the hottest. A few local prospectors who somehow survive in the region call it “Hell on Earth.” The volcanic mountains, particularly the Funeral range, are bare and colored in brilliant reds and yellows dotted only by an occasional stunted mesquite or lone cactus. The lower portions of the valley are covered in salt flats, left there from the occasional wash from the Amargosa River, which might actually contains a few inches of water about three times a year.
A handful of prospectors scour the scorching desert of Death Valley in search of borax. A few claim to have seen strange black-clad phantoms there, though most dismiss these visions as mirages caused by the incredible heat.
