Boot Hill Wild West Role-Playing Game (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
by Jacob H. [Verified Purchaser]

This is an entirely different game from Boot Hill Third edition. This has the best Wild West combat I've ever encountered; it's very deadly. An example: To attack, I have a percent chance I need to roll under to hit. If I hit, I roll on the Wound chart twice; once to see what body part got hit, another to see how bad it is. Regardless of your level, an unlucky hit can kill you instantly.

The rulebook assumes you'll be playing a game similar to the old Braunstein games of yesteryear. Everyone creates a character who has a role in the town/terrority; Texas Ranger, Sheriff, Marshell, Indian Chief, Railroad Boss, Newspaper Owner, Outlaw Gang leader, drifter, etc. Everyone is viaing to make such and such amount of money, and the referee just moderates the chaos.

This blog post here has a description of one Game Master's experience with Boot Hill 2nd Edition. http://www.chocolatehammer.org/?p=5773

I played Buffalo Castle and a few other solos with this when I was a young teen. It's a beautiful game, with just the right tone to encourage you to keep it fluid and fun.

I couldn't find my actual character, but here's a pretty close approximation of my most common character; (I always made a new one when they died in a solo, so they had short lives)

Combat in T&T is fun; I was skeptical, thinking it'd be lame with all those d6s, but there's something awesome about rolling a handful of them and rushing to see whether you or the monster rolled higher.

Barons of Braunstein

A great simple system for a Braunstein. I wish it had more about actually running a Braunstein. There's just a single page covering that, though it's a good page.

I'm going to have to take a stab about jazzing my friends up about Stargate again; this book looks like a great system for heading off to the Pegasus Galaxy with!

The Vigilante Hack
Publisher: Bloat Games
by Jacob H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/16/2019 20:08:20

To my shame, I still haven't run this game yet, though I've read it several times. Looks perfect for Daredevil/Punisher/Arrow style vigilante adventuring, with maybe a smidge of Dirty Harry or Death Wish.

I highly recommend doing a Google search for "Vigilante Class Hack," a fan supplement that reworks the classes into 21 different ones.
