Western town group game
« on: August 22, 2013, 10:32:07 AM »
I was wondering if anyone would be interesting in having a group game set in a post-civil war Western town.
Think "Deadwood" in terms of general style and tone.
You could play the proprietor of a saloon, a fancy brothel madam, the town doctor or Sheriff, a down on his luck prospector, a preacher, a gun for hire, ...

In terms of the plot, I would set the game at a time when the community is confronted with a large influx of new people due to some gold and silver being discovered nearby, bringing along every chancer and hanger on in the large vicinity.

Before I work out a CS and flesh out the idea more, I'd like to have a proverbial show of hands in here of folks who (perhaps) would be interested in such a game. Thanks!

*edit*

Edited to add the when and where as well as the CS:

The year will be 1876 (keep that in mind if you make a character with a civil war past, in terms of him or her having an appropriate age).
The location will be the fictional town of Whitestone in Colorado, which has recently gone through a boom in population due to the discovery of precious ores in the nearby hills.

Rejoice!  :-)

Forgot to add in my OP that if you have some idea of what you'd like to play, it might be interesting to hear it already. :)

Would love to do this. Town doctor would be awesome, who was a doc during the Civil War, depending on how much after the CW this takes place. :)

I'd be up for a game in this setting.

Perhaps a con man/ snake oil hustler or  an heir to a family ranch.

I have plenty of ideas for this setting. It will be like playing Red Dead Redemption

I'm tentatively interested. Maybe an heiress to a fortune moved west recently... with a dark side of course.

I'd love to be one of the Saloon girls. Not like the prostitute kind but the performer kind. Or a general store owner?

I will likely build and run the local school offering a four year and eight year option, depending how much education the parents want for modest tuition if the school headmistress is not taken.

I like the idea on the down on his luck prospector.  Less 'crazy coot' and more 'eternal optimist despite chained failures.' Always has another plan that'll totally work this time.

Maybe as a cover for a growing desperation.

Lovely to see so many interested folks already.

I will cook up a CS ASAP. :)

One thing that has been decided already is the when and where.

The year will be 1876 (keep that in mind if you make a character with a civil war past, in terms of him or her having an appropriate age).
The location will be the fictional town of Whitestone in Colorado, which has recently gone through a boom in population due to the discovery of precious ores in the nearby hills.
