Wherever u-go, mi-go 18 Mar. 2006
By Alexander Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a CTHULHU player, I was interested in DEADLANDS as a sort-of Cthulhu-out-West game. Not that one is a subset of the other, but you can imagine the 2 games interfacing well in that time and place. As I read more of the Deadlands universe, the more impressed I was with the setting by itself. It has its own flavor of gritty cosmic horror which I find quite amenable.

So what do you do with 2 complementary flavors? You smoosh 'em together!

I find the Deadlands dime-novel format to be quite, er, novel. The adventure is in a small paperback the size of a cheap novel. The first half is a story set in the Weird West; in this case (ADIOS, A-MI-GO), the protagonists are familiar faces from the Deadlnads series, along with an interloper from CALL OF CTHULHU. Plus a scientific expedition from the Fungi from Yuggoth. The story does a nice job of adding flavor to the mechanical presentation of the adventure in the second half of the book. There is also a "third-half" of the book that gives conversion rules between Deadlands and Cthulhu.

The adventure looks as if it would be pretty tough for Deadlands characters. Cthulhu PCs would be lucky to just survive the encounter while the novel seems to assume that the characters will actually do some fightin'. I'm just glad that the interloper wasn't carrying the Necronomicon.

Anyway, it was a cute little adventure and got my attention better than a standard module would have.
