What could be more patriotic than a Western stagecoach? Just in time for Independence Day, a new Travel section has been added to Deadlands 1876, inaugurated by a piece on the Deadwood Stage. Offering the history of the Cheyenne and Black Hills Stage and Express line, this document may be used for any Western stage line. It details Concord coaches and their teams, outlines the role of drivers and shotgun messengers, and discusses the perils of robbery. New game mechanics are suggested for conducting combat on a racing stagecoach, and NPC profiles are supplied for NPC drivers, shotgun messengers, and road agents.

Legendary gunslinger Wild Bill Hickok has been added to the roster of Deadlands characters! This extensive profile offers a detailed biography of Hickok, provides notes on his favorite guns, and offers two new Unique Edges.

2019 May 13
In possibly the most anal-retentive, arcane, surely-never-to-be-read post I’ve ever made for a role-playing game, a page about Faro Rules now graces Deadlands 1876! Yes, all the history and mechanics of the Wild West’s most popular card game explained, with detailed notes on cheating, and guidelines for running an in-game version of faro during a campaign! Just what you wanted, right?

2019 March 22
Known as the “Queen of Deadwood,” Belle Siddons has been added to the roster of Deadlands characters. A former Confederate spy turned outlaw, the brilliant and beautiful Belle Siddons now goes by the name Lurline Monteverde, where she charms audiences upon the stage and robs them when off.

2019 March 5
Currently dealing faro in Cheyenne, Doc Holliday has been added to the roster of Deadlands characters. A dangerous outlaw, this former dentist has an acid wit, a lethal temper, and a nasty cough. Depicted before his fateful meeting with Wyatt Earp, the Doc Holliday of Deadlands 1876 is a nasty piece of work, a fatalistic gambler who’s left a trail of dead bodies along his drive towards self-destruction.

2019 March 2
The Lösesegen talisman has been added to the Deadlands Reliquary. This relic from medieval Germany has the power to release its possessor from bondage; and in extreme circumstances, may even summon the ancient “idisi” themselves.

2019 March 1
The Deadlands Reliquary’s Wínyan Núpa’s Book of Faces has been expanded with new Powers and spells.

2019 February 26
Known to the Arapahoe as the “hecesiiteihii” and to the Cheyenne as the “vo’estanehesano,” the Cannibal Dwarves of Native American legend invade the Deadlands Bestiary. Also included are notes for recasting these monstrous little bastards as the Abominable Tcho-Tcho People from Call of Cthulhu, or reducing them to a degenerate bloodline of Gangrel in Vampire: The Masquerade.

2019 February 23
How does the Black Ghost Nation win all those skirmishes against the U.S. Cavalry? Well, it helps if they can neutralize the enemies’ gunpowder! The Shaman-only Power of Bad Powder Medicine has been added to the Deadlands Grimoire.

2019 February 23

2018 December 22
The core members of the Byzantium Coven are now complete with the addition of their oracle, Kaúxuma Núpika. A transgendered Kootenai prophet from 1790, this unusual Cainite interprets the future using erotomancy and diablerie. A brand-new character for New York By Night, “Xuma” is the most detailed character profile on the site so far, and was inspired by an actual historical figure.

2018 October 6
The Byzantium Coven’s “Lupanaria” section is now complete with the addition of Viriconium, an erotic carnival built in the remains of an abandoned subway station.

2018 October 5
Three more additions to the Byzantium Coven’s Lupanaria—The Hellfire Club, a BDSM dungeon in the Meatpacking District; the Empusa Theatre, an avant-garde opera house known for outré productions, and the Satrina, a literal pleasure yacht that hosts the Sabbat’s floating bacchanalias.

2018 September 29
Two large additions have been made to the Lupanaria of Byzantium. The “exclusive” gentleman’s club Zoara Bela is the most public face of the Daeva’s coven, while Siddim is the most wicked den of depravity operated by the Sabbat, offering everything from suicide-by-vampire to a a vozhd bordello. Both of these links—and presumably, the places themselves—are NSFW.

2018 September 14
The Hippodrome and Cabaret Tannhäuser have been added to the Lupanaria of Byzantium. The former is a gay sex club; the latter is a burlesque cabaret where the Masquerade is pushed to its breaking point.

2018 September 4
The Lupanaria of Byzantium have been moved to their own section. This page details the many dens of iniquity operated by the Sabbat’s Byzantium Coven, and starts with Club Byzantium itself, the coven’s haven. Being links to Daeva establishments, they are NSFW; and possibly NS2W.

2018 September 3
The Byzantium Coven page has been expanded, with the profiles reorganized into coteries.

2018 September 2
Shipwreck Library has joined Patreon! So if you really enjoy my materials, consider becoming a patron and supporting Shipwreck Library. You can also read more on the revised Support page. Thanks!

2018 September 1
The Byzantium Coven gains its penultimate vampiric profile with Harry Clarke. Once a famous Irish illustrator and stained glass artist, Harry Clarke is now cursed to wander Byzantium in a daze, trapped in a perpetual Celtic twilight. After all, I’ve been stealing his artwork left and right, it’s the least I can do!

2018 September 1
The Byzantium Coven gains another member—Loviatar, an edgy burlesque dancer who adopts the personae of space babes, dark goddesses, and misunderstood monsters. But what started as a Star Trek fetish may be rapidly evolving into a supernatural case of multiple personality disorder. Plus—Blibdoolpoolp!

2018 August 22
The Byzantium Coven continues to expand with another NSFW post—Sister Elsie Toshiro, a Malkavian dominatrix who can absorb the memories, personality traits, and physical characteristics of her lovers and victims.

2018 August 21

You like vampires and sex, right? Of course you do! The revision of New York By Night continues with the Byzantium Coven, the pack in charge of the Sabbat’s vast network of sex clubs, brothels, opium dens, and meat markets.

2018 July 25
The Sabbat’s sprawling nightclub is built in the remains of an old church, and features everything from a disassembled helicopter to an underground café designed by H.R. Giger! Come visit Sarnath, the Church of Starry Wisdom for its Lovecraftian décor, but stay for the Saturnalia! (Or because you found yourself hanging upside-down in the Catacombs.)

2018 July 24
Feeling the need to “flavor” a blood doll with some illicit substances cheerfully served up as Lovecraftian concoctions? Then Sarnath’s Black Light Coffee Menu is for you!

2018 July 20
Former singer of the seminal rock band Baphomet, Rose Mary Lynch has been added to the Crow Magnum MC. Serving the coven as oracle, “The Widow Lynch” believes she is destined to be the mother of the Cainite antichrist.

2018 July 12
The Crow Magnum MC and the N.O.X. Coven been added to the Gotham Sabbat section of New York By Night. Because what’s cooler than undead Satanists terrorizing the Bronx astride their Harley-Davidsons?

2018 July 11
The Sarnath Coven has been added to the Gotham Sabbat section of New York By Night. The most important coven in New York, Sarnath is a Sabbat nightclub that occupies an abandoned church, and carries a distinct “decadent Lovecraft” theme.

2018 July 09
The Gotham Sabbat section has been divided into covens, each with its own page. The Sabbat Leadership, Green-Wood Coven, Smugglers Pack, and Coven of the Alabaster Madonna sections have been completed, each expanded and revised for your fin-de-siècle gaming pleasure.

2018 June 29

Just a note—I took two months off to get some “actual job” work done over the holidays, but I plan to add a significant amount of material to Shipwreck Library in 2018! Old stuff will be restored to “New York by Night” in time for the Vampire: Masquerade reboot, new stuff will be added to Deadlands 1876, and my Call of Cthulhu pages will be expanded. Happy New Year!
