Six Gun Sound - Shootout in Santa Fe Bat Rep

With Six Gun Sound - Devil's Elbow coming out soon, been doing lots of play testing and fine tuning. The new Draw mechanics add a level of tension to the game that isn't  in any other THW games.  

1877 - Santa Fe New Mexico
The Sheriff has collected his Deputies to confront Charlie Ward and his Outlaw gang. First a little Story telling.





 Enough talk. Before you actually Draw, each Character must take the Will They Draw Test. There's six Professions and some may talk the talk, but won't walk the walk. Citizens, Townsfolk and the like tend to leave before the shooting starts. Easy to do, just roll 2d6 versus Rep and modify it by any applicable Profession or Attribute. In this case, the Lawman and Outlaw pass 2d6. Let's do this!

 Now here's where it gets intense. Each Character rolls 3d6 versus Rep. TOTAL the d6 scores from all the passing d6, in this case the Sheriff has 5 and the Outlaw 4 as he's Rep 4. If he was Rep 5 he would go first as his total would be 9 versus the Sheriff total of 5, even though the Sheriff passed more d6!

 After the 3d6 are rolled, set the highest passing d6 aside. This is important. Now roll for damage.
"6" = Obviously Dead.
Rep or higher but not a "6" = Out of the Fight
Lower than Rep = Reduce Character's Rep by highest passing d6 scored by the shooter and take the Carry On Test if new Rep is 1 or higher.

 The Sheriff won the draw and fires. By passing 3d6 on the Draw he scores two hits. Pass 1d6 and he scores 1 hit. Pass 0d6, he misses and the other guy fires - based on his Draw roll.
Charlie goes Out of the Fight, both sides now go to the Action Table, the Lawmen fire first.

 After all the shooting and returning fire, four guys are Dead or Out of the Fight and the last Outlaw runs away. How long did it take? About 5 minutes. The two wounded Outlaws would go to a Jail Break Encounter, the Lawmen would roll for their next one.

5150: No Limits - The Night Terror - Coming Soon!



The old wound keeps me from sleeping. It brings back bad memories. Memories of when the aliens came. Where they came from no one knew. Attempts to reason with them were fruitless, as they preferred to attack without provocation. They were so vicious and irrational and soon there were but few of us left alive. Only those that chose to hide survived.

 I swallowed my pride and hid like the rest. I said back then I did it for my family, my children. Our leaders said, “There is room for all of us to live on this world, even the aliens. Let us live together in peace.”

But they were wrong. I remember returning from the hunt. It had been a good one even though the aliens had killed most of the animals that we lived on. I remember returning to my home and seeing it destroyed. My children slaughtered and none about except Death. I wailed my grief for what felt like forever, wondering why fate had kept me alive while taking the others.

Then I realized it. I was to be the vengeance of my people. So I hunt the aliens in memory of my children, in memory of my people. I am the last of my kind. I come in the night bringing death. The aliens know me as… 

The Night Terror - Coming soon!

5150: No Limits - The Cool Coolie Coming oon!



Reaching the end of the flight line, Gus smiled.  There she sat, Gus’ prize possession the “Cool Coolie” – a small trader by galactic standards.  Yet, she was much larger than the gun boats he’d piloted during his twenty-year stint in the Corps.  She looked as though she had seen better days, but that was the way Gus preferred it.  A beat-up looking ship attracted less attention from authorities and pirates alike.

Gus was a transporter by profession but being based out of New Hope meant he also did a good amount of smuggling.  He was owner, pilot and captain.  A captain who was beginning to wonder the whereabouts of his crew. 

Gus climbed into the cockpit and nestled into the pilot’s seat just in time to see the sun crest the horizon amid brilliant hues of gold and orange. Sunrises on the arid New Hope landscape were always spectacular.  He noticed a blinking light on the comm panel.  He pushed the button, it was a message from Shortcake.


“Jeez, Gus, turn on your phone.  Our glorious crew got themselves arrested at a party last night.  They’re spilling their guts about our last run to save their bacon.  Better lay low; the cops are looking for you.”

The Cool Coolie - Coming later this week.
