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).
Other recent additions to the R&W expansion;
- New weapons; bull whip, boomerang, Bowie knife, slingshot, military saber, bayonet
- New combat options; one-shot kill, showdown, using two firearms simultaneously, firearms versus undead
- New creatures; assassin bird, carnivorous cattle, desert raider (inspired by the sand people in Star Wars™), gummersaurus (a three-stage creature inspired by the Tremors movies and TV series), frontier hag, hyenawere, nameless stranger (undead creature inspired by Clint Eastwood’s High Plains Drifter character), prairie lobster (inspired by the lobstrocities from Stephen King’s Dark Tower books), titanic rattlesnake, titanic tarantula, gargantuan tarantula hawk
- New magic; grasses to provide healing, summoning, poisoning, ESP, and hallucinogenic spell-like effects (still in-progress)
