I have been running role playing games now for about 4 or 5 years, and my system of choice by far is Savage Worlds. I've played in and run games using a number of others, but none I have used so far clicks quite so well. I enjoy running games far more than I do playing in them, and my greatest experience so far has been a long running zombie apocalypse game that recently concluded.

I currently run several games - A Deadlands Reloaded campaign, a Hellfrost campaign, and I am just gearing up to start something using Unknown Armies, a completely new system to me.

as an aside, this question might be a better fit for the World Building stack exchange site, but I'm not certain as I've never used it.

Welcome to the site. Unfortunately this question is not a good fit as it stands, as it seems to be encouraging discussion and would be more suited to a forum based website.

comment Can Deadlands Mad Scientists re-use Alchemy Formulas?
this question specifically relates to Deadlands Classic, which uses a completely different set of rules unrelated to Savage Worlds. So I'm afraid your answer is not valid

An additional comment - another thing to be aware of is that this type of play tends to favour players who are naturally good with words. You need to be careful in these situations that players are roleplaying the (lack of) social skills of their characters appropriately.

comment How do I deal with Messiah Complex Players?
'if the PCs find the right leverage' is really important here. It is very easy to let this kind of play dominate a story, turning every problem faced into one with a solution where the PCs manage to talk then NPCs around, no matter what the situation. You have to keep in mind at all times that the PCs must have appropriate leverage in order to persuade/intimidate/taunt the NPCs into changing their mind about whatever. Without that leverage though, it is simply not possible
