This is what I submitted to the Pinnacle planning committee:

Last Updated 04/01/2021

Proposed schedule for Doomtown games (very flexible, just my initial thoughts)

Thursday: Day: Tourism, Night: Dinner/Games/Welcome party
Friday: Focus on Greenhorns! Additional Side Event (DMH) if Interest
Saturday: Morning: Old Time Photos, Day: Doomtown Main Event, Buffet on Site for Dinner, Night: Savage Saturday Night and O’s Call Out
Sunday: Day: Traitor Event during/after Main Event Top 4 at original site of No. 10 Saloon, Night: Goodbye Party (no scheduled Doomtown)

Additional Side Events such as Team Event, Dead Man’s Hand variant event, Traitor variant event, subject to attendance/interest as we await further scheduling.

Saturday will be the Badge event, one both in person and one Online


Note this thread will be followed with a detailed schedule and included swag as the information comes in.

Good morning cowpokes! Thank you to everyone who participated in our survey!

We welcome everyone attending in 2021 as well for a celebration of Deadlands and Savage Worlds as we join our pardners hosting this round-up.

We will have a Badge Storyline event on site this year and online Badge event that Saturday so everyone can join in the celebration and each have a chance to influence two different stories!

The 2022 event will follow the same outline as we did for Tombstone in a weekend of all things Doomtown, so if you can’t make it this year, rest assured we’ll be there again


Swag update!

In addition to all the awesome stuff PEG Is providing, all participants will receive:

-Welcome to Deadwood Extended Mat (variant of this will be a prize)
-Deadlands themed Exclusive Promo Bicycle Deck
-Control/Influence ivory Doomtown dial
-Deadwood Bandana
-Hero Legend Promos

As we find more details on PEG swag and the schedule we’ll post it here pardners!


Would it be feasible to participate in both Doomtown and Savage Worlds events? Or would one realistically have to focus on one or the other?

Absolutely feasible! Right now the goal is to avoid overlap for the big events, but still offer either option at times. For instance, Savage Saturday Night: for anyone that really doesn’t want to roleplay and just play Doomtown, Orange will host his call out style round-up.


From our friends at PEG:

Hotel Room Reservations Are Now Open for Expedition Deadwood 2021

If you’re making plans to meet up with us in Deadwood, South Dakota this August to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Deadlands and the Welcome to Deadwood expansion for Doomtown, hotel room reservations are NOW OPEN!

While you are certainly welcome to select any hotel or lodging option you like, if you want to get closest to the action for our extended weekend of Savage Worlds gaming and adventure, the Holiday Inn Express & Suites is hosting our main ballroom, while the Gold Dust Casino & Hotel is located directly across the street. Either way, we suggest giving them a jingle using the numbers on the attached graphic, and be sure to tell ’em Savage Worlds Expeditions sent ya’!

Additionally, if you still need to register for this amazing event, secure your Expedition Deadwood Badge today! Please note that badges are free to kids and teens under 18, however some games and events will be adults-only, at GM discretion.

We look forward to seeing y’all in the “No Rules. No Regrets.” town of Deadwood, SD!


Reminder on sign-up Badge link with further details from PEG incoming:


As we get closer to the event we’ll be coordinating on Discord regarding helping folks taxi in from the airport in groups. This appears to be a better option than car rentals as prices have soared.

From PEG Site:
Your badge includes admission to: The Adams Museum, The Days of ’76 Museum, The Historic Adams House, and the Mount Moriah Cemetery where you can pay respects at the graves of Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and Seth Bullock.

Pine Box is directly contributing to the swag bag with Doomtown specific items such as an extended Welcome to Deadwood (Land Purchase art) mat, Control/Influence dials, Doomtown Bicycle Deck promos specific to this event (much like we did in Tombstone), and additional promos for those participating in the Doomtown Deadwood Marshal Event and side-events.


Update from the PEG Newsletter:

Bringing history back to life in Deadlands usually involves a blood pact with a Manitou, but in the Wild West town of Deadwood, the dead rise and are gunned down again and again in the streets several times a day (except Sundays)!

We’ll be kicking off our spectacular weekend in style by boarding the 1880 Steam Train on Thursday Night for a round trip journey through the scenic Black Hills featuring an Old West shootout!

Back in town, the Deadwood Alive gunslingers gather on the street to re-enact three infamous shootouts from Deadwood’s past beginning at 2pm with the Strange Case of David Lunt. At 4pm, don’t miss a Showdown on Gold Street, while the Boone May and Prescott Webb shootout, that was broken up by none other than Sheriff Seth Bullock, takes place at 6pm sharp!

Expedition adventurers can head inside Saloon No. 10 at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, and 7pm to see Wild Bill Hickok get dealt Aces and Eights before that Coward Jack McCall shoots him down. All of the above are free, historically accurate, gunfight re-enactments.

The 7pm shooting spills out on to Main Street for the capture of Jack McCall at 7:35pm and then heads into the Wild Bill Theatre at 8pm for a ticketed event: the Trial of Jack McCall.

Tour Deadwood by stagecoach every half hour from Noon until 4:30pm by stopping at the Luck Horse Stage Shop next to the Celebrity Hotel for tickets.

If hoofing it is more your speed, book your Lawman’s Patrol a day in advance to enjoy an hour-long history lesson in and around Deadwood’s key historical attractions.

With all the shootouts happening away from the table, we’d be remiss if we didn’t remind you that there will be plenty of black powder and ghost rock going up in smoke at the gaming tables in the afternoons and evenings in celebration of Deadlands‘ 25th Anniversary!


Schedule is incoming soon!

Friday and Sunday will focus on gaming, Thursday and Sunday on tourism.

Wednesday evening we’ll be in town to kick things off!


Full Schedule is posted!

O will be detailing the Call Out on site.

For the Traitor Event, you will be allowed one out of faction dude to join your Starting Posse!


Live Q&A tonight 9pm est on the PEG Twitch channel for Expedition Deadwood 2021 and Savage Cruise 2022
