What would life be like after a cataclysm destroyed life as we know it? What if the life you once knew, or your parents knew, was a distant memory of times of plenty as you yourself just scrape by with few pleasures. That in a nutshell describes the environment of "The Deadlands," a roleplay sim of life after the apocalypse. I recently had a tour of the place from the owner. But not everything was bleak. While there, a party was thrown.
