Deadlands Reloaded: The Weird West
The Wiki is broken into three parts like most any Deadlands book. The first part, Posse Territory is unregulated free access of the players. Anything in this section is completely unrestricted. Additionally, anything dealing with locations, characters, items outside what is found in either No Man’s Land or Marshal Only sections is free game for the players if they are willing to put in the time to read it. The knowledge of these subjects can even extend to character knowledge as much of it is common knowledge out west or doesn’t take a whole out of research and asking questions off camera or between sessions. More to the point, the Marshal should encourage use of this information by the characters to give the game a better feel that the Weird West is a living, breathing place.
