Deadlands Reloaded: The Righteous, The Rough, and The Clever
The Explorer’s Society is an international “gentleman’s club” with private rooms in a few of the larger cities of the world. Being “explorers,” there are also a fair number of “outposts” on the American frontier as well.
The Explorer’s Society is seen as a club of rich and eccentric kooks by most, for it is (rightly) rumored that their favorite past time is hunting creatures most don’t even believe exist, such as jackalopes and hoop snakes. This is the stuff of the Tombstone Epitaph, which it is said “everyone reads but no one believes.”
Membership in the Explorer’s Society comes in one of two ways. A person can buy their way in with their family’s credit or cash, or they can be inducted because they have skills useful to the Society.
