...the Ravenloft thing, not the Poe thing.
I just noticed last night that Shane Hensley wrote much of the boxed set for MotRD. If you didn't know, Hensley created the Deadlands setting. I can totally see the parallels between the Gothic Earth setting and the Red Death and Deadlands with its Reckoners/Manitou.
There's a even a picture in A Guide to Gothic Earth that features a posse of undead cowboys that looks like it could've been pulled straight out of the original edition of Deadlands.
This means that my Ravenloft boxed set can also double as a sourcebook for Deadlands detailing the rest of the world. Sweet jesus.
This also brings to mind the time I set out to convert the entire Ravenloft Monstrous Compendium Index to original Deadlands... I'm all about that Red Widow.
