Originally released in the 1990s by [[http://www.peginc.com Pinnacle Entertainment Group]], ''Deadlands: The Weird West'' was the first setting in what would become a trilogy. The brainchild of Shane Lacy Hensley, ''Deadlands'' was, at the time, praised as a breath of fresh air amidst the various ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'' clones and derivative works. The rules were very detailed (to the point of being cumbersome, at times), and the setting was more so (to the point of being awesome, most generally). Since then, Pinnacle (and its affiliate, Great White Games) has begun re-releasing the settings with the much lighter (but less detailed) ''SavageWorlds'' rules system. This began in 2006 with ''Deadlands: Reloaded.''

* ArmyOfTheDead: The Black Regiment is a rare evil example of this, though technically more an example of NightOfTheLivingMooks. They are a regiment of Walking Dead created from fallen soldiers, their uniforms stained a blackish color due to being soaked with half-dried gore (hence the name), who mysteriously appear on battlefields to turn the battle in favor of the losing side with their vicious tactics. Of course, they fight for the Union or the Confederates as they see fit, as their purpose is to basically keep the deadly stalemate between the countries going, and they're perfectly happy to turn on their "allies" of a given battle if they get in the way.
