American West: Hell on the Plains
« on: March 16, 2007, 09:00:59 PM »
Anybody interested in a Western, Surreal, Nihilistic story in the veins of, but not limited to, the following?:
-Cormac McCarthy, "Blood Meridian"
-DC Comics (Vertigo, notably), "Jonah Hex"
-Clint Eastwood, "High Plains Drifter"
-Sam Raimi, "The Quick and the Dead"
and/or any number of other things...

Supernaturalism:  Yes.  But no wizards or dragons or fluffy bunnies that fart magical flowers.  Everything would be toned down.  Kept mysterious.  And, like... western.  Yeah.

Violence: Heavy, potentially gory descriptions, including gunfights, zombies, and maybe even a little bit of human sacrifice, BUT as per site rules, there's a line between it and the following subject, which IS--

Sex: Heavy, including non-con TENDING situations, but... for matters of taste... not balls-out rape.  And remember there's gotta be a buffer zone between the two.

Anybody interested, at all..?

You could join the ongoing Deadlands game.  The Good, the Bad and the Purty.  It's the spaghetti western with meat, the dead crawling back out of their graves, zombies, etc.

No fingerwiggling magic.  You have good old western style magic.  Indian Shamans summoning spirits, Gamblers betting their souls for dark power, and Preachers calling down the power of the Lord.

I appreciate the offer.

I saw the game you started initially, and... sorry, hard to say why, but... it didn't seem to fit then.  I'm still kinda torn.

Oh, I'm not the Marshall (GM).  That would be Muse.  I'm just one of the players.  I'm playing the Eli, a Southern Huckster, who gambles with demons to work magic.  Are you interested in more of a one on one?

sorry, couldn't remember who started the thread... amend to a collective 'you'.

No, not a one-to-one.  A small group, though... who knows?  I should reconsider, and am reconsidering, should the game still be open. 

Damn if the momentary inspiration isn't fading already.

*Waves to Ixy.* 

Would love to have you. 

And I could never have gotten that game off the ground without the aid of Thymoit's experience.
