Well, as PbtA is not allowed in the 24 HR rpg writing contest on rpggeek.com, instead I worked on an Old West game.
The game is inspired by Dust Devils using a card game more popular than poker at the time of the Old West…Faro. You play a Ranch Hand, Prospector, or Politician trying to make a new life in the west. The game focuses on themes of fortune (through gambling or prospecting), revenge or justice (through vigilanteeism or the law), power (dirty and honest), and love.
The game had to be written within a 24 hr time period so it is only a first draft but here it is.
Why I am Excited
The mechanics support the themes and motifs. It is also my first attempt at a storytelling game. Lastly, it is fun to play as the mechanics are based on a real world (if archaic) gambling game.
Having read half of the entries so far, I am still hoping for a 3rd or better finish.
I am looking forward to adding details to be sure it is fully playable without me running it and to provide an example adventure.
