David Orange has spent the last half dozen years walking the streets of Gomorra and riding the trails out of town. He first chronicled the exploits of the town and its dudes as part of the Harrowed Entertainment Group’s fan project. As part of Alderac Entertainment Group’s Doomtown: Reloaded story team, David wrote and edited fiction, created flavor text, and named cards.

Like any word slinger worth his ink, David knows the value of a strong posse. He has assembled a stellar team of writers who will bring these tales to life.

“I like the stories of Deadlands and Doomtown because they’re equal parts familiar and fantastic. The spells, monsters, and gadgets are cool to see and dream about. But the decisions of the heroes and villains derive from the same moral compasses that guide us every day. We may not face the trials that Gomorra’s denizens face, but the dramatic stakes highlight how each of us shapes our own lives and the lives of others through choosing between what to do and not do.”
