The American "Old West" as many of us know it, is, in many ways, our equivalent of European Fantasy. It builds upon history as it was, and morphs it into a history that "may have been". Larger than life. Legends.
I've yet to find an RPG that I felt had a manageable game system along with a setting that felt rooted in the fiction, mostly TV and "Spaghetti Westerns". I'm hoping the Cepheus Engine, which is built off the Mongoose Traveller OGL, will fit the bill with Rider.
Until tomorrow morning, Rider is marked down in PDF from
19.99 to 6 bucks. Clocking in at 356 pages, I have high hopes :)

I strongly recommend you look at "Wild West Cinema" from Dave Bezos. It came out in 2010 or about. It is a solid system that really gives a great western TV or movie feel. I just wrapped up a 6 month campaign for my group, and they absolutely loved it.ReplyDelete
Dave Bezios. It is on DriveThru for under $3.ReplyDelete
I was very interested in the game, until I saw who the company was. I am not sure if I can bring myself to buy another one of their games with the way they continue to treat their KS backers.Delete
