As we finish up the final arrangements to get the Limited Edition of the FAR WEST Adventure Game out to the printer, I realize that we’ve been terribly remiss about posting updates here on the site. We’ve been present on the official forums, but haven’t posted material to the actual site for far too long. That changes as of today — we’ll be making a concerted effort to feature more content here. To kick things off, I realized that we’d

Forum and Far West Society Now Live!

We’re pleased to announce that the official Far West Forum is now live! Head on over, register and take part in the palaver, using either the previous link, or the main menu button over there at left. The forum will be your central discussion site for all things FAR WEST — questions, comments, conversations and more. We just opened the place, so I expect that there will be some dust here and there, and things may change as we open

FAR WEST Cartography Notes

FAR WEST Cartography Notes

On November 14th 2011, after several months of preparation and hard work, the first Far West map was completed and approved. It was a long, arduous process, but the final results made it all worthwhile. My name is Andrew Law, and I have the honor of being the cartographer for Far West. If you want to know a little more about me, go check the Bios page. I can’t fully express my excitement at being involved with this project. For

On Sunday October 30th, FAR WEST developers Gareth-Michael Skarka (GMSkarka on Twitter) and T.S. Luikart (TSLuikart on Twitter) did a live chat with backers and fans. What follows is the edited transcript of that evening’s event: QUESTION (@Lyfhskull): I’ve been wondering a while, will there be a ‘writer’s guideline’ for farwest contributions? ANSWER: (@GMSkarka) Well, @Lyfhskull, we’ll be rolling out the Far West Society in November, which will include methods for contribution. QUESTION (@GoldenElm): Should I presume the rules “srd”

The Chartered Houses – The Steam Barons

The Chartered Houses – The Steam Barons

by T.S. Luikart The Chartered Houses are great mercantile families from Back East, chartered to operate in the Periphery and beyond. Colloquially (and none-to-kindly) referred to as the Steam Barons. Chartered Houses are given a free reign to operate, and often have their own settlements and even their own military. There are Chartered Houses that specialize in weapons production, Chartered Houses that run railways, Chartered Houses that are agricultural giants, Chartered Houses that run mining operations, etc. Three of the

Starter, KICKED.

Starter, KICKED.

The FAR WEST Kickstarter project began on July 11th 2011, and ended at 3:58pm Central Daylight Time yesterday — August 25th 2011. We had asked for $5,000 — basically enough for me to pay my co-developers up front, and get a number of folks interested in our strange little Wuxia-Western mash-up, by providing them with a cool Limited Edition of the RPG. At the end of the 45 day Kickstarter, we had over seven hundred backers, and they showed us

A Look At The Latest Art…

Sorry about the lack of more regular updates: As you might imagine, we’ve got a full load of development work going on, prepping for the launch of the Adventure Game and the fiction line this December. Our crowdfunding Kickstarter program has another week to go, so if you haven’t signed up yet, you’ve still got time. Once the Kickstarter draws to a close, you’ll see much more activity on this site. In the meantime, we thought you might like to

TALES OF THE FAR WEST

TALES OF THE FAR WEST

The FAR WEST Kickstarter is galloping along. We passed the 10K mark, which means that all backers will be receiving an exclusive supplement, LEGENDS OF THE FAR WEST which won’t be appearing anywhere else. If you haven’t pledged as a backer yet, go right ahead and do so — anyone who signs on before the end of the Kickstarter on August 25 is eligible to receive all of the benefits, even the ones that appeared as specials before they pledged.

Fastest Gun In The FAR WEST

Fastest Gun In The FAR WEST

As we mentioned in our last update, we launched the Kickstarter crowd-funding project for the FAR WEST Limited Edition Adventure Game on Monday. We set our minimum goal at $5,000 US. We achieved that minimum goal within 15 hours of launch. I don’t think I’ve seen any RPG Kickstarter reach that level of funding so rapidly. FAR WEST is quick on the draw! As of the time of this writing, we’ve just passed $7,000. First of all, a hearty THANK
