A page for Doomtown: Reloaded was added to the AEG website this morning. No real information yet, but this may be what I have been hoping for!

There's not much there, but I thought this was interesting:

"Doomtown: Reloaded will feature exciting events at your local store for you and your posse! Will your Law Dogs maintain order in Gomorra, or will the Sloane Gang terrorize the citizens? Can the Morgan Cattle Company continue to expand, or will the machinations of the Fourth Ring throw everyone into chaos?"

I'm reading into this a lot, but I think we're getting a different setting than Gomorra. One possibly based on Dodge City (since there's a cattle company). The Law Dogs are obviously going to be the same faction they were in Doomtown (ie, the law), with the Sloane Gang taking the place of the Blackjacks, the Morgan Cattle Company standing in for Sweetrock, and The Fourth Ring... maybe The Whateleys?

Hard for me to not read "machinations" as the Collegium, but this is said, of course, as a Collegium player. But you might be right about magic-users.

Not sure, but notice nothing has anything Deadlands related on it? Wonder if that means it will be connected with some other property. Sad thought. I'd survive, but that'd be weird.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I also thing the Morgan Cattle Company was a faction in the Range Wars version of the game, right?

Of the four faction symbols at the top of the main page, the symbol for the Fourth Ring appears to be a skull. Looks more Whateley-like to me....

The badge pictured on the Events page says

MCC was part of "Deadlands: Doomtown - Rangewars". And had a major part in the "Black Circle: Unholy Alliance" book for Deadlands RPG.

So, that would seem another Tie to Gomorra and Deadlands.

Also, "Deadlands: Reloaded" is the current incarnation of the RPG, so one might connect that "Doomtown: Reloaded" is to honor that.

Obviously were all living in speculation-vile at the moment. AEG is supposed to announce "something big" at GAMA this weekend, I'd suspect this is it.

I just noticed no copyright notices which credit the Deadlands property. I'm only guessing. It could be said that certain elements were owned by Doomtown (such as Gamorroa, or references to Law Dogs and Morgan Cattle) while other things weren't. Again, speculation-ville. Monday-ish will probably bring many answers. I definately caught the "Reloaded" aspect and would much prefer the weirdness of the Weird West. Just trying to make sense of the differences (Sloane's Gang, Fourth Circle, etc.).

I couldn't sleep last night I was so excited about this.

The GAMA trade show is next week, with AEG presenting on Tuesday.

Maybe we will hear something more official after that. *fingers crossed*

Am I the only one that gets a log-in screen when attempting to view this info?
I guess I can wait a few more days, if it is indeed a GAMA unveil and not just a ghost.

It got taken down. I'm guessing it was a mistake, having it up so soon.

Very interested in this, this is EXACTLY what I've been hoping that AEG would do.

Four factions screams "LCG type" to me. That's what they are using for their R9E game too. Normally AEG likes a *lot* of factions in their CCGs, L5R has nine of them and that's fairly typical. 7th Sea had ten factions, and the old Doomtown had ten as well.

So what I'm predicting is four factions in the base set and an expansion that adds 2 more factions not long after.

Anyway, we'll see what they announce on Tuesday...

The website claims an August release, so this should be at Gencon too!

Really hope they have a better tutorial than the old one.

From the GAMA Trade Show Book. Looks to be an LCG.
