  It'd be cool to have a Boot Hill game going here, although I'm pretty well booked up right now. I'd love to get into one sometime though...

  That's cool!

  Let me read through your current game here and see if SBRPG would lend itself to that (we do things a little differently than most RPGs). Currently I'm indexing our game (a 500 page book), and finishing up the write-ups for our own playtest previews, so I'm a bit pressed for free time atm laugh.gif

I never touched the revised edition, but I didn't realize it was based off AD&D 2nd Ed. That sounds horrid for a fast-and-fun Old West game. Why? Why! blink.gif

All this talk about cowboys and gunfighters is inspiring me to write something about them for my game (even though we already have a complete cowboy weapons list in SBRPG). We shall see...

Hey, idea here! Why don't you set up a game of yours here on the PBP forum? I'd like to see what it's like! smile.gif

  TSR put out a revised version of the game sometime in the early 90s. It was based on AD&D 2nd Edition rules, so it was nothing like the original. I really wanted to get the original, but since I couldn't find a copy I went with this revised one...it never got played.

  Well, I used to have a BALL playing that game! Yeah, the book WAS thin, but that was one of the best parts about it- it wasn't that complicated! ANYONE could understand and play it.

My friend and I had a couple characters rolled up who were crack shots... It always seemed that we'd go into a town to rob a bank, end up spittin' lead with some gang or other, and when we took 'em down, we got pressed into service as local lawmen. We'd stay awhile, break a couple young ladies' hearts, and set up a robbery that faked our deaths (usually ending up with the destruction of the bank) and headed off to another town.

Man, those were the days!

I did enjoy having stats for the Daltons, the Earps, the James Brothers, and a host of other historical figures. I think that's what was THE best part- having the chance to go up against the best.

  Since it came up in another thread, I thought I would start a Boot Hill thread here. Yes, I played it, and it was a fun romp with sixguns and shootouts. The game was ultra thin, like with 30 or so pages, but cool (especially with cowboy figures).

It was almost closer to a tabletop miniatures battle game than a full RPG though. One fun part of the game was the recreations of the 'historical' cowboy shootouts, like the OK Corral and others. Another plus were character stats for famous gunfighters and outlaws of the Old West.

So saddle up pardner, anyone else have some cool BH stories to tell?
