Free RPG Day Pick #10 - Westwater RPG (OSR Western PWYW)
So, you say that Westerns are under represented in the OSR, and you would be right.
Therefore, let us present (for free / PWYW) Westwater, a full (no art) western RPG that should be real comfortable to those that enjoy playing the classic fantasy game and it's clones.
Heck, I'm sure you could even find a way to make a workable version of Far West if one desired - probably a more playable version than the still unreleased Kickstarter too.
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!
