New Orleans, 1935. Whoever called this `The Big Easy` sure got that one wrong. From shady thugs to crooked cops to Mafia soldiers, there`s plenty of characters out there looking to give an honest Joe a hard time. And that`s not the worst of it. Still, there are a few heroes left in the concrete jungle. Steely-eyed private dicks, fast-talking grifters, wild-eyed inventors, and shadowy houngans still struggle against the encroaching darkness. Set in the world of the Deadlands universe, Deadlands Noir includes new Edges, Hindrances, and powers, as well as new rules for handling detective work, the state of the Union and the CSA in the Depression-era, a complete Plot Point campaign, and of course, more monsters and ghouls than you can shake a smoking .45 automatic at.
