Alright, I'm starting a new tradition today. Free RPG stuff that can be found on the internet for your Holiday enjoyment. I do the searching, you get the free staff to enjoy, read, play or whatever else your heart desires.
Today's stocking stuffer is Go For Yer Gun! It's an OGL based game with an Old School Feel. Did I mention the 80 page PDF is fully bookmarked. How come every publisher can't do the same? Especially when they want me to dig deep into my pockets to buy their stuff? I'm not going to mention names, but they know who they are.
It's got the six stats you know and love, hit points, classes, experience charts - it a D&D Western. No where near as simple to use as Weird West, it would still be a bargain at twice the price. Of course, twice the price is still free ;)
From the blurb:
Role-playing adventures in the Wild West. This role-game takes the OGL, shakes it up and lets only the necessary stuff back in again. What this means is that you are left with a straightforward, no nonsense role-playing game without feats and skills. It does feature a simple class-based system (Drifter, Gunslinger, Preacher and Wrangler to name just a few of the 10 character classes), so it has that 'old school' feel with a more modern slant. It is so easy to use, it can just as easily be used as a simple gunfight/skirmish game with as much or as little of the role-playing element as you like. If you like feats and/or skills, these can be taken from the SRD or any other OGL or d20 game you happen to like and slotted straight in seamlessly. Included in the game are several pages devoted to 73 real-life Wild West characters, 3 adventure ideas, a character sheet and rules for multi-classes. The word count is 33,000 words (including the WOTC OGL) and it is fully bookmarked.
