Anyone have any suggestions for fictional gunslingers to add on my list?

Quigley from Quigley Down Under

Ethan Chandler from Penny Dreadful

Allan Quatermain from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Roland Deschain from Dark Tower

Roy Bean from The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean

Preacher from Pale Rider

Will Kane from High Noon

 

Should get you started.

From the 1969 western novel Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down

 

The Loop Garoo Kid - an African-American cowboy who is a houngan.

 

Drag Gibson - an influential landowner, a blatant racist with no regard for human life, who has a habit of killing his wives when he's tired of them.

 

Chief Showcase - last surviving member of his tribe who tries to stir up trouble between the Federal government and greedy landowners in a "last strike" effort to get his revenge. Presumably that isn't his given name but he's pointed to by the government as a tame Indian because he's literate and corresponds with politicians and newspaper editors.

Yosemite Sam? I mean, c'mon, he's the rootin'est, tootin'est, gosh-darn shootin'est . . . .

 

You should see DCs version of him with Jonah Hex and Foghorn Leghorn doing a redition of Rooster Cogburn.

John Byrne did an issue of Alpha Flight [#19] where they go back to the old west. A bit of magic and such - maybe more pulp then anything else possibly.

 

 

I remember Alpha Flight from back before Marvel stopped producing comics.  I really enjoyed the series.

 

IIRC they shuttered their doors in the mid 90s.  I've always thought it sad that comics no longer exist.

Any word on release date/price yet?

I am really looking forward to this. 

 

All the recent games I've run in the old west have been Down Darker Trails, which were well received.  I'd love a Hero version I could tweak into horror 😈

Yes, CoC 7th edition.

Up front it is horror, but I have always found it to be super easy to run it without the horror component.  My version of CoC incorporates the modified version of GUMSHOE's investigative system. Which I also use in Hero.

That sounds good especially cause I don't know if you're allowed to shoot whooping savages anymore😃

 Once upon a time we played a lot of boot Hill and had a lot of fun

 

I ran a DDT one-shot on Halloween.  It was non-mythos horror.  The players were part of a half section of cavalry plus the sheriff and posse. They were pursuing a warparty after they had raided the local town.

 

When they finally cornered the warparty they discovered the only part that was Apache were the skins......:sneaky:
