Revolvers & Wizardry Update

RnW_bugAs with most Usherwood products, my ideas seed other ideas, which in turn seed yet more ideas. This simple expansion is starting(?) to take on a life of its own.

Here’s some new artwork you can expect to find in the Usherwood Weird West OSRIC expansion;

Assblaster

    Sounds cool.

    Wild west is one of those genres where the GM can move the slider back and forth across the gritty-to-fantasy spectrum to suit the interests of the players (if the mechanics are well balanced, that is).

    If your players want to chase down cattle rustlers or bank robbers, or just keep the town of Tombstone safe for decent folk, you could run a “low fantasy” gunslinger vs. gunslinger campaign and that would be lots of fun.

    If your players want a dose of the weird, you could have Tombstone beleaguered by the ghosts of a nearby ancient Indian burial ground, or plagued by werewolves, or some other supernatural horror.

    If your players want to go all the way out, you could have Tombstone be a world where spellslingers and gunslingers battle mythical creatures.

    Heck, you could even do a wild west / sci-fi campaign, like that movie “Cowboys vs. Aliens.”

    Hopefully your upcoming sourcebook will accommodate all of the above. :)
