Board Description


by Viper

I reckon it's 1877 here in the mining town of Deadwood in the Dakota Territory. We got ourselves a problem here. Ya see we ain't got no sheriff and the lawless types have dernt near taken over the town. The people are tired of gettin shot to pieces just walkin down the street. We need a sheriff to stand up to em and bring some civility back to our town. Are you man enough to take the job?

Welcome to f***ing Deadwood! - Al Swearengen

*This map is based off the HBO TV series of the same name. Set in Deadwood, South Dakota in the 1870's during the gold rush. Known for it's scintillating uses of profanity. In 3 seasons it's reported that the word f**k was used 2980 times. Here's a few random quotes that aren't too profane:

Jack McCall: Should we shake hands or something, relieve the atmosphere? I mean how stupid do you think I am?

Bill Hickock: I don't know, I just met you.


Seth Bullock: We got chamber pots to sell ya. And if you don't know what one of those is, the man livin' next to you will appreciate your findin' out.


Al Swearengen: Her husband came here with childish ideas. Bought himself a gold claim with me an honest broker. Claim pinches out, which will happen. But he can't take that like a man, has to blame somebody. Seller's left camp, so he picks on me. Says he'll bring in the Pinkertons if I don't offer restitution. I got a healthy operation and I didn?t build it brooding on the right, and wrong of things. I do not need the Pinkertons descending like locusts. So I bend over for the tenderfoot c***sucker. Reconnoiter your claim fully, I say. And then, if you're still unhappy, I will give you your f***ing money back. And the tenderfoot agrees. Just as he's finishing his reconnoiter, c***sucker falls to his death, pure f***ing accident. But up jumps the widow in righteous f***ing indignation. Wants the doctor to examine him for murder wounds. My visions of locusts return. I see Pinkertons coming in swarms.


Doc Cochran: I take it you've been out on a hoot?

Calamity Jane: I've been drunk awhile; correct. What the f*** is that to you?

Doc Cochran: The question was well meant. Like if you was a farmer, I'd ask ya how the farming was going.


E.B. Farnum: It is no disloyalty to be a realist, Richardson. We are mortal. One hopes for the best. One perseveres. One re-evaluates constantly. One is an a**hole if one doesn't. Loyalty expanded is not loyalty betrayed. I contemplate no disloyalty to Al Swearengen. I feel exposed. I don't like being weak, and I know that I am. I yearn to rely on a stronger will. I fear what I'm capable of in it's absence. Whereas you, Richardson, know nothing of yourself. Are you sh**ting or going blind? Or on foot or horseback? You vile f***ing lump!


Al Swearengen: [after waking up from his "coma"] Did you f*** me when I was out?

Dan: Hell, no.

AlSwearengen: Then quit looking at me like that.


Al Swearengen: Do they understand how most of what happens is people being drunk and stupid and trying to find something else to blame besides that that makes their lives totally f***ed? No. They don't.


Commissioner Jarry: And you, Mr. Wolcott, I find you the most severe disappointment of all. Wolcott: Often to myself as well.


Mose Manuel: That easy, to forget a f***ing brother!?

Francis Wolcott: Money has properties in this regard! ..Though no remedy is discovered yet sovereign against sentimental remorse.


Al Swearengen: You see me empty, Sir, do not pause and inquire, simply assume and refill.


Calamity Jane: I drink what I?m able. If that comes to much, that?s the day?s affair and the liquor?s.


Hearst: To labor without pleasure makes us our destiny?s slaves.

Al Swearengen: To work for crumbs or to keep from the lash says maybe a slave?s what you are.


George Hearst: Elections cannot inconvenience me. They ratify my will or I neuter them.


Adams: When he ain't lyin', Al's the most honourable man you'll ever meet.
