Another "Pay What You Want" RPG - Westwater (OSR B/X Fantasy Western)
Looking to have a dwarven gunslinger? Look no further. Westwater is a Fantasy Western wuth roots in the OSR. So, you can play it with spells, magic and fantasy races OR you can play it as a straight up western RPG.
I'm thinking the first option might be a way to get some mileage out of the various Deadlands sourcebooks for those of us that don't play Savage Worlds.
As always, with Pay What You Want, the price is always right.
Westwater is going to my iPad later today.
From the blurb:
Back in the early 80s, B/X was one of my groups favorite RPGs. While there were Wild West RPGs that existed, we really wanted to play in that genre using Tom Moldvay's system. Thanks to the OGL, we can now share that with you!
Westwater uses the OGL to be completely compatible with any other B/X rules system. While the core of the game mixes traditional 19th Century history with fantasy, there are guidelines that allow you to play the game modeled after realistic 19th century themes, or with a fully magical and fantastical theme.
So choose your gunslinger, holy man, monster hunter, mountain man, outlaw, and more classes, and earn your name in the Wild West!
This version is the no art version, and is designed to be a free/pay what you want model.
