Re: Western Hero Resources

 

They do have some cool previews on the website. I Liked "Firearms, Flaws and More" very much. I wasn't sure I would burn the coin to buy the tome, but that item has almost convinced me.

Thanks a lot for posting this link. Just purchased this puppy via the link you shared.

 

Can't believe I'd never heard of this (old) HERO supplement before :eek:

 

Thanks Again :thumbup:

Got the book & absolutely love it :) Crazy, that I'm getting so much out of a 16yr old HERO resource!

 

I didn't get into HERO until 2003, so now I'm totally interested in what other gems might be out there from decades past.

 

Thanks Again for the link. I would've bought Western Hero on day one if it'd been at my local gaming store.

Not only did your link gift me w/ the Western Hero hookup but it also introduced me to the wonder that is Noble Knight Games :thumbup:

Re: Western Hero Resources

 

Snagged a used copy of Western Hero from my FLGS for $3.

 

Sweet... maybe I should flip it on eBay, 'cause I already have one. But I figured we might never see a 5th Ed version, so I should at least stick it in the collection.

I don't know what your tastes are, but there are a couple of 1st edition adventures you can still find floating around called Deathstroke and the Great Supervillain Contest that I think are very cool.

 

Also, there's a nifty 4th Edition Horror Hero book that you don't see around too often, but might be worth having based on your taste.

Not an RPG supplement, but I stumbled upon this collection of of Western stuff through Amazon Dry Goods (whilst looking for costume patterns). I've only perused the Cariboo journal online stuff (great stuff there), but peeking around it seems that it's covers a pretty broad selection of stuff.

Thanks a lot for making me feel old, I remember making a wild drive to buy Western Hero when it first came out during my lunch break from work. It was usually a 40 minute drive to my FLGS but I made the round trip and purchase under an hour. Looking back that drive could have left a nasty mark on my driving record (not only broke a few traffic laws, I think I might have broken a few laws of physics :eg: )

Not old. Uh... seasoned.

 

Yes, think of it that way.

Re: Western Hero Resources

 

Has Steve and Co dropped any hints on doing Western Hero for 5ER? As someone who has no interest in looking on ebay, I'm rather interested in such a book, being a L'Amour, Duke, and Leoni fan and all.

Hmmm... you can look at the planned release list, I'm blanking on where it is, but it's somewhere around here.

 

However, I don't think there's any serious discussion of doing a 5th Ed version. There is, as it seems you know, a 4th ed version.

 

A few weeks ago I ended up with an extra copy . If it's something you might be interested in having, just drop me a PM.

I seem to recall that during a recent Wednesday night chat Steve

mentioned that it would be way down the list, if on it at all...Tho'

a few of us in the chat did push for a combined title which would

cover both western and swashbuckling genres. One title that someone

tossed out was (if I'm remembering correctly): 'Swords And Six Guns

Hero'. :D

 

Just think: The Three Musketeers team up with The Man With No

Name... :ugly::thumbup:

 

Of course, since there is no current method of logging the chats

others who were there might have a better recollection than I of

the discussion....Anyone else recall that ?

Slightly off topic:

 

That reminds me (belatedly) - anyone else here ever seen "The Master

Gunfighter" with Tom 'call me Billy Jack' Laughlin ? Or "Red Sun" with

Toshiro Mifune and Charles Bronson ? Cross genre goodness !!

Re: Western Hero Resources

I would flat-out love to write an all-new Western Hero. Unfortunately, the book just wouldn't sell well enough to be worth the effort. In the time it would take me to research and write WH -- and it's a subject that I love, so I would want to do a very thorough job -- I could write three or four other books for, say, Champions or FH that would each sell twice as well as WH would.

 

So, I'm sad to say it's not likely we'll ever get to do a new WH, unless something changes.
