An abandoned house...

The entrance to the Warrens...

The entrance to the Doonmorr Mines...

The Black Market...

A couple of players fishing...

Well i couldn't resist not showing these off. I just got these in...how is this for being dedicated to the game? LOL

That's right, Deadlands 3000 business cards! Heck ya! \m/

I am going to put them in my local game stores and what not, plus where I work I get a lot of people asking about the game, so these should come in handy.

What do you guys think?
