The Fifth Wheel (the First Book of West Marque) is a western-fantasy RPG. In it, you play a Fifth Wheel, a lawman's lawman. Set in the world of West Marque, a not-so-wild west of some forgotten yesterday, the law of the land is yours to uphold. The game is designed to cater to three types of players: 1. Those wanting quick, one shot games filled with snarling gunfights. 2. Those wanting longer campaign styled play. and 3. Those seeking a blend of both. The core mechanic is condensed to a handful of pages but many optional rules are available so you can suit the game your personal tastes. "Outlaws, dirt riders, low lifes, and Dead Priests...Bring them to justice, hang 'em high, or put 'em in their graves. It's all up to you."
