From the back cover:
"The spirit and adventure of the western frontier comes to life once more, in this exciting new roleplaying game designed for d20.
Lawmen, townsfolk, gentry and rustlers all work to survive in the brave new world. Free from the shackles of the Old World and its all-powerful Guilds and petty intrigues, the New World awaits.
But it might not be as easy to shake off the influence of the homeland as they might like.
Play any profession or creed you like, fight to protect your family or lands, and experience the joy of living in a land unsettled for thousands of years.
It can all be yours when you journey into Link:West."
