Revolvers & Wizardry update

RnW_bugWork progresses, albiet slowly, on the OSRIC Weird-West expansion that is in preparation for the Door of Infinite Portals update.

The most recently completed development milestone, is the line art for the firearms that will be featured within the expansion; a selection of pistols, rifles, and shotguns (which I have termed ‘scattershot’). Also, in the development of rules descriptions for these weapons, I have gone into some small amount of history to explain where these items originated. In this, the expansion will feature four specific historic groups of warriors; Union Knights (gunslingers), Confederate Marauders (frontiersmen), Myrlunds (doctors), and Minotaurs (as PCs).

    Hey mate. Long time no speak. Nice to see some of the development work on R&W. Drop me an e-mail and we’ll have a natter.

      Heya Collin, yes, it’s been quiet, but work on the Rovolvers & Wizardry supplement for OSRIC that will be included in the second edition of The Door of Infinite Portals does continue. In fact, I have included here a couple images of new creatures that we will be seeing within that supplement.
