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

The FAR WEST Adventure Game is a tabletop RPG featuring blazing sixguns, over-the-top kung fu action and far-out steampunk inventions, where you and your friends can create the adventures of warriors who wander the Dust Road — fighting for their clans, their cause, the oppressed, or their

Development Update

Development Update

As we come to the end of the first month of Far West, the time has come for a development update, detailing our plans for the coming month. First of all, now that we’re up and running, this website will be moving from daily updates to a three-days-a-week schedule. The reason for this is simple: We’re kicking into high gear on development of actual Far West products for release (the role-playing game being the first), and need to devote more

Down The Road…

Down The Road…

As previously mentioned on the main page, Far West is not limited to the content of this site and the forthcoming tabletop role-playing game. We have a number of other projects in development, all of which will expand and explore the world of Far West. So, we figured we’d turn it over to you. The tabletop role-playing game is the next project out of the gate (we’ll be launching the Kickstarter for the limited-edition release in early July) — but

The Empire and the Secession Wars

The Empire and the Secession Wars

We’ve gotten various comments (In email and on forum discussions) which indicate that there is still a bit of confusion regarding the setting of Far West. Some folks are still operating under the assumption that what we’re doing here is a historical fantasy, where the Wild West features more of a wuxia influence. This is not so. The world of Far West is a fantasy world — one that has no relation to our own. This isn’t historical fantasy, it’s

The Odyssey System: The Rules of FAR WEST

The Odyssey System: The Rules of FAR WEST

As stated on the front page, the Second Movement of Far West will be a tabletop roleplaying game. Development on this game began in 2007, initially using the FATE System. After a playtest, though, we felt that it wasn’t a perfect fit for FAR WEST. Although there were certainly some elements of it that we felt worked really well, overall the system was too abstract for what we were trying to convey, and so development continued. An original system was
