Western Hero: Rough and Ready Roleplaying


Recommended Posts

I did think it was a little strange that it's been out since the 18th but not mentioned, so I thought I'd better announce it.

 

I've finished skimming through the book, and it's pretty good. The added Talents and modified combat rules are interesting.

 

It's a genre book with a modified form of the core rules included, a bit like how Lucha Libre Hero was done. At 276 pages for the PDF, it's a good deal at $15.

I'm liking what I've seen skimming through it, although I think some of the reference info is a little suspect.  The floorplan for a farmhouse includes a kitchen island and two interior bathrooms, which I'm not sure is 100% period

Weird. Still no mention of this book on the main page, but the Celtic Hero Bestiary is now announced.

 

It makes me wonder what other new things might be getting added to the store but not announced.

I picked up several fantasy hero for 6th PDFs last week and don't recall them being mentioned unless it was quite awhile ago. One was a list if Paladin spells.

I learned about it (and bought it) due to Hero Games announcing it on Facebook Wednesday, March 24.

 

I heard about it via a post in the Western Hero 6th edition thread back on Tuesday.

On topic. I rate it 5 starts. Has everything I'd want in a Western rpg plus some. I may go back and see if I still have my old Boot Hill stuff for extras. I'm happy with it though :)

 

And how many stops? :sneaky:

 

:whistle:

 

On a serious note, it is definitely on target and a great book.

 

In addition to Boothill, Chaosium's Down Darker Trails and Shadows Over Stillwater are also great resources.  While CoC is a horror RPG, DDT can easily be played non-horror and Chaosium does good background work.

I was guessing while away from my work computer, so its under 300 :)  Shouldn't have needed padding, though, that's frustrating.  I had it perfectly divisible by 4 when I sent it to Hero; they must have added a page somewhere.  Hope it didn't throw off the table of contents.

 

I got the POD from DriveThruRPG, so if Hero did a print run, then that's not the one i got.  The extra pages were all at the end, so they couldn't have thrown off the TOC.
