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

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

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

A Glimpse of Character Creation

Now that we’re in the final stretch, getting ready to the pull the trigger on sending the Far West Adventure Game to press, we’ll be posting more preview material about the game here on the website. Our first glimpse is an overview of Character Creation. Heroes in Far West are the protagonists of their own adventure series. Players create heroes following the guidelines in the rulebook, with the assistance and guidance of the Narrator. Heroes are defined by several components

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

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
