In Print the Legend, players assume the role of characters in the year 1866, being guided through a series of scrapes, gunfights, and escapades by the gamemaster, or GM. The setting is historical; the action is not. It’s up to you to tame the New Mexico Territory through any means necessary: driving cattle, defending homesteads, digging graves, robbing banks, catching outlaws, or making a stand against an Indian charge.
As part of a team of roleplayers, you’ll take turns describing your character’s actions, making skill checks, and facing the consequences of your actions. Your choices define you: will you waylay stagecoaches and lead a life of excitement and crime, or will you seek to bring those bandits to justice?
Print the Legend is a unique and gritty entry into the sub-genre of Western RPGs:
- covers every aspect of life in the West while avoiding unnecessarily complex rules.
- historically rooted in the postbellum Southwest of 1866.
- features a skill-based experience system using percentile dice (2d10 or 1d100)
- highlights the lethality of combat and the derring-do of the men and women who defined the American Myth.
