Deal of the Day - We Deal in Lead (Weird West)

I'm a huge fan of Spaghetti Westerns, as well as more recent classics like The Unforgiven, 3:10 to Yuma, and similar movies. It's purely American folklore and fantasy. I'm also a fan of post-apocalyptic settings and rulesets. Mix the two together and it seems like you got your chocolate in my peanut butter! ;)

We Deal in Lead is today's Deal of the Day at DTRPG. Normally 12.67 in PDF, but until tomorrow morning it is on sale for 6.33.

Edit - For what it's worth, I just bought and downloaded We Deal in Lead at the sale price and it looks very interesting.

We Deal in Lead is a weird west wanders TTRPG by Colin Le Sueur for 1 or more players. Streamlined rules, fast character creation, and gameplay built on exploration and player choice. Based on Cairn by Yochai Gal.


  • Set in a strange post-apocalyptic world eerily close to ours, where the borders of time and space wear thin
  • You are Gunslingers, mythic champions holding off the forces of chaos with lead and grit
  • Combat and exploration gameplay designed for 1 or more players, including solo or group play
  • Streamlined d20 roll-under rules based on Cairn, Into the Odd, and Knave
  • Hard-hitting gunslinger combat with new gun mechanics
  • Compatible with other Cairn adventures and settings; journey with your gunslingers into other genres and times
  • Recruit heroes from other worlds to join your quest, even those fallen to death; death is just another door, after all
  • Keep the bonds of fellowship strong within your Gunslinger Order and your aim will remain true
  • Wilderness survival and exploration through a world that has moved on — the known and unknown lands are dangerously unpredictable
  • Friend and train beast companions to act as your eyes, ears, or fangs, including hawks, wolves, and bumblers

  1. I guess Gareth's Far West RPG can do all that and more - if you live in Europe you just need to pony up 60 more bucks and he *definitely* will ship the book you paid in full generations ago.

    1. also, fun fact : adjusted for inflation, a 2011 $50 hardcover would cost 69 bucks today.
