Coyote Trail Expanded Edition


It's an age of cowboys, rustlers, gamblers, and lawmen. The town's assembling a posse to hunt down your gang like the dogs you are. Coyote Trail includes rules to create a variety of Wild West personalities, simple rules for fights and chases, ready-to-play adventures, story ideas, reference sheets, and numerous character, horse, and wagon templates.

Coyote Trail is a roleplaying game designed to be both easy to learn and fast-paced. The versatile genreDiversion i 2d6 rules make it perfect for one-shot games, extended play, or as a framework for your own ideas. Plus you can combine it with our Active Exploits Diceless System for diceless Wild West adventure, and you can also easily adapt weapons from the Knuckleduster Firearms Shop (published by Knuckleduster Publications).

In short, Coyote Trail is fast, ready-to-use, and adaptable. You don't have to learn a complicated system, refer to scores of tables, or spend all day creating characters. The basic rules require very little study, and the advanced rules are not much more difficult to pick up. You can either create custom characters for the game or dive right in with any of the included templates. The game is designed to be light; it has a small footprint and extremely low price tag - it's not overloaded with tons of rules or an excess of information you just won't need. It's meant to get you running quickly so you can have a good time.

The setting is very open, taking place anywhere you choose in the America West circa 1870. Travel the dusty trails from boomtowns to native villages. Rustle cattle, rob banks, and terrorize towns. Of course, if law and justice is your thing, take on the role of sheriffs to protect towns, and drive off bandits and Indians. Then again, you could just gamble all your money away. The included adventures immerse you into the heart of the West so even if you don't want to the run them, you've still got a lot of inspiration to help flavor your setting or inspire ideas. The rules are also flexible enough to handle your own vision of the West or that of your favorite Western movie, television program, or novel.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
