The Sixth Gun, a supernatural Western comic, created by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt launched a KickStarter today in partnership with Pinnacle Entertainment Group to bring the world of The Sixth Gun to tabletop roleplaying within the Savage Worlds rule set.
According to the KickStarter, The Sixth Gun RPG will unveil “new Edges and Hindrances, guns and gear, Setting Rules, rules for sorcery and voodoo, an Adventure Generator, and a host of nefarious rogues, gadflies, and scoundrels.” Players will be faced with tough choices as they get a chance to encounter the mythical guns and make decisions that could alter the West or the world as we know it!
It will also include The Sixth Gun: The Winding Way Adventure that involves all sorts of unusual beasts and creatures as well as odd characters. The Winding Way will be a prequel to the events that occur in The Sixth Gun, Vol. 1: Cold Dead Fingers. There will also be a Game Master Screen where you can find the charts and tables for the game on one side and beautiful artwork on the other.
There are a number of different rewards. The largest pledge offers you the opportunity to play The Sixth Gun RPG at Gen Con Indy 2015 with Cullen Bunn acting as Game Master and Scott Woodard on hand.
