From publisher blurb:
Welcome to the Furious West!
“I hope you brought your six-guns, stranger, because the frontier ain’t no place for the faint of heart. Sure, it’s wide open country full of opportunity and the chance to start over. Make a life for yourself. Maybe even strike it rich. But there’s little law to be had out here, and less justice, except the kind you make for yourself. You don’t look like no tenderfoot, so I reckon you can take care of yourself, but don’t get cocky. This town’s got a special place for them that got too cocky, up there on Boot Hill. So just remember, amigo, you ain’t back east anymore. This here’s the Furious West.”
Six-Gun Fury is a love letter to Sergio Leone, thinly disguised as a rules-light roleplaying game of Action-Adventure Westerns. Like many western action movies, the game is set in a version of the Old West that has almost nothing to do with actual history, a place we like to call the Furious West.
Using an updated version of the ruleset introduced in Magnum Fury, our original action movie roleplaying game and the progenitor of our Furious Games line, Six-Gun Fury is a fast-playing game about action heroes in a mythical old west that never really existed.
If you never found westerns all that interesting or don’t think you know enough about the Old West to run a western game, then this game is especially for you … because we felt the same way.
Or at least we did when we started working on Six-Gun Fury. But then we rediscovered the western, and fell in love with the genre. Westerns have it all: action, adventure, comedy, excitement, heroism, mystery, romance, sacrifice, tragedy, everything. But there’s something special about westerns, something raw, something almost post-apocalyptic about them, without the need for an actual apocalypse. And there’s something almost impossibly poignant about the small, personal stories that are so important to the western’s larger-than-life characters, and often to them alone.
So don’t worry about whether you know enough about the Old West. Trust us, you do. On top of that, we watched way too many westerns and spent way too many hours doing actual research so you don’t have to. We boiled everything that really matters about Westerns (at least as far as this game’s concerned) down into a few pages of ideas and random tables to help you throw a western game together in no time flat.
Come on, partner, the Furious West is waiting for you, here in Six-Gun Fury!
