The Adventure Game Cover

The Adventure Game Cover

你好, folks! As we’re finally getting closer to the release of the Far West Adventure Game Core Rulebook, we figured that it was time to show you some of the stuff that has only been shown to our Kickstarter Backers so far. Today, we’re giving you your first look at the front and back cover of the game! The backers offered their opinions on a number of different options, and these are the final designs that resulted.

The Far West Character Sheet

The Far West Character Sheet

Getting ready to send the Far West Adventure Game to the printer (and to the Kickstarter backers!) in the next few days. It’s been taking me longer than I’d hoped for, due to some sort of virulent plague hitting the Skarka household. Still plugging away, though! We’re asking the backers for their opinion on which character sheet to include in the book — both options will be available for download from the website, but only one will appear in the

August Art Preview

August Art Preview

Getting ready for our annual trip to the biggest tabletop games show in the US, GenCon. As discussed over in our forum, we’ll be having an informal meet-and-greet on Saturday evening, 7:00pm in the lobby of the Omni Severin, 40 West Jackson Place. If you’re planning on dropping by, head over to the forum and sound off! In the meantime, I thought that I’d give you a look at some of the latest art that will be appearing in the

Adventure Game Support Revealed

Adventure Game Support Revealed

“Once the Adventure Game core rulebook is released, we’d like to commit to a robust release schedule of support.” Those were the words that Dominic McDowall-Thomas, the CEO of Cubicle 7 Entertainment, used when we were finalizing the discussions that brought Far West‘s game releases to the company for distribution in game stores world-wide. What, I asked, does “robust” mean in this context? “Ideally, a new release every eight weeks or so,” came the reply. Over the past week, TS

Developer Commentary:  Aspect or Edge?

Developer Commentary: Aspect or Edge?

by TS Luikart Looking “under the hood” at the thoughts behind why certain choices are made, or discarded, while designing a roleplaying game is a delight to some and slightly preferable to watching paint dry to others. If you fall into the “want to know everything” camp, read on – we’ll write material that appeals to the rest of you lot another week. Some of the really interesting questions Gareth and I have been asked (many variations of) by our

Far West GenCon 2012 Seminar

On Thursday, August 16th, 2012, Far West co-developers and GenCon Guests of Honor Gareth-Michael Skarka and T.S. Luikart held a seminar at the convention. The seminar, “Far West: Western, Wuxia, Wild!” was an informational overview and Q&A on all aspects of the property — how it was developed, what’s been released, what’s still coming, and what is planned. For those people who were unable to attend GenCon 2012 in Indianapolis this summer, we’ve recorded the entire seminar, and present it

Farewells and Updates

Farewells and Updates

Sad tidings today. It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Rick Hershey is parting ways with Adamant Entertainment and Far West, for personal reasons. We wish him all the best on his future endeavors, and thank him for his role in determining the look of the world of Far West. The Far West Adventure Game will still feature his wonderful illustrations — especially the Backer portraits — but we will be supplementing it with work from other

A Glimpse of Combat

A Glimpse of Combat

Our preview of the rules of the Far West Adventure Game continues, this time with a look at the combat system. When you’re doing a game of furious kung fu and blazing sixguns, combat is a critical component of the system, and it was the one part of the rules where we felt it most important to bring across the “feel” of wuxia action. To talk about combat, though, we need to give you a brief rundown of the core
