Blessed get hit the hardest by the metaphysical dusk. The player characters are survivors with new loyalties, to their own ideas of justice, to a militant God, to the possible future for humanity embodied in the Mutants created by the war or to the crazed technologies which some wanderers invent with demonic assistance and fuel with unnatural energies.
While the mechanics of Hell on Earth are almost identical to those of its predecessor, its tone is more science-fictional, a rich stew of radiation priests and road warriors, ghost rock rays and automata controlled by undead human brains see Robots. It is at this point, perhaps, that the series first departs from the path laid down by Lansdale and King, moving into the territory of an unfamiliar genre. The final part of the original trilogy is Deadlands: Lost Colony PEG , designed by John R Hopler and set on the extrasolar planet of Banshee — the world beyond the wormhole, cut off from Earth during the final war.

All of this sophisticated hardware is, however, powered by the supernatural ghost rock, while the Faster Than Light drive that one group secretly possesses runs on human sacrifice.
Ultimately, many things can be revealed in a game of Lost Colony.
Banshee is alive, a conscious planet with a supernatural soul which fuels the magic of the native shamans. In Doomtown game terms, all Blessed who fail a Miracle pull are then booted.
