Anybody else hankering to play a ? I love a bit of weird west, or a space western, but sometimes I wish strait up historical westerns were more popular.

@Plusorminus I guess that the problem with historical westerns is that, without magical healing, once you receive a bullet in your gut, you're pretty much dead.

Of course, playing with #Fate-style consequences instead of wounds probably makes it more manageable.

@Yoric Actually I was thinking of a Fudge Build. Getting shot is something the players should be avoiding :) Let's be honest though, what's more western than trying to settle up before your gut wound takes you?

@Plusorminus As long as you don't get too attached to you character :)

@Plusorminus Seems like Undeadwood (from the Critical Role folks) may boost popularity. They’re putting on a hell of a good show and the d6s and deck of card mechanics are perfect for the setting.

@metagrrrl its Deadlands, which I love (both classic & reloaded) but it's a fantasy/steampunk/western mashup so it's not gonna scratch the itch... although I have s separate itch for the railwars mini game they made a while back.

@Plusorminus Hmm, yeah, it may just bring people in for the spooky and not for the history.

Seems like there are amazing stories to be played of the real west, especially as we hear more about the people that were in the background before.
