In the US, the Old West is like our Camelot. It’s achieved mythical status. Cowboys, outlaws, gun slingers, rancher’s daughters, shootouts. It was quite a time and place to be. Dead in the West looks to bring that mythical world to your tabletop. It’s a new RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
My name’s Will Donelson. I’m a writer by trade and an avid Tabletop gamer, and I’d like to talk to you about my new project Dead in the West.
Dead in the West is a tabletop roleplaying game set in a Mythologised Old West setting. Think old Cowboy Movies and Pulp Novels – the kinds of tall tales of daring feats and larger-than-life figures that could only exist in that particular blend of history and fantasy. In Dead in the West, setting out on an adventure should feel like you’re modern-day scribes, stitching out part of the tapestry that is the Great American Mythology.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 26 days.
