Black Hat Games Launches Mud, Blood, & Glory Wild West RPG Kickstarter

First off, kudos on the Oxford comma, Black Hat Games. I genuine do appreciate that.
Anyway, actually moving on to the game, Mud, Blood, & Glory is a wild west RPG that puts players in the rootin', tootin', shootin' Western Territories in the 1880s. Grab your Colt Peacemaker, duster, and saddle up for adventure.

From the campaign:

 Mud, Blood, & Glory is a tabletop role playing game set in the American west in the 1880s. It is designed from the ground up to be accessible and inviting to players of all experience levels. With Mud, Blood, & Glory, anyone can sit down and get started in minutes — no experience required. Form a posse, saddle up, and hit the trail! 

Mud, Blood, & Glory is designed for 3 - 8 people to play. Most players will take on the role of outlaws, brigands, and bandits of the old west. One person will be the game master who will create the world and curate the narrative experience for the players. 

We want to make games that everyone can enjoy, no matter their experience level or play style. We want people to feel like they can sit down and play a tabletop role playing game without having to ask someone else or look up a guide online for explanation.

This philosophy guided our design of Mud, Blood, & Glory. Every rule and aspect of the game was designed so that someone brand new to the world of tabletop gaming would find it approachable. This means we wrote the rules in simple language, without using terms that are specific to tabletop gaming culture — even then, we included a glossary to define any terms we thought could be confusing. If you forget a rule or choose to leave one out, Mud, Blood, & Glory will still be fun and playable.

The campaign is up and running now. It's set to go for another 29 days.
