The term “Wild West” conjures up images of square-jawed cowboys on horseback, watching over a cattle drive; steely-eyed lawmen facing down desperadoes; painted saloon girls carousing with rowdy guests; and stoic Indian tribesmen, watching their world slip away. The Wild West — that period of America’s history during its westward expansion in the latter half of the nineteenth century — was all that, and much more. Now, players using the 2D6 system can visit those thrilling (and often dangerous) days of yesteryear. Under Western Skies is an RPG supplement based on the Mongoose 1st Edition 2D6 OGL system (which is itself based on The Original Science-Fiction Roleplaying Game first published in the 1970s) and adapted to create heroes and adventures suitable for an Old West campaign.

Designed to “get out of the way and let you play”, the rules are minimalist and leave most of the creativity to the referee. Included are rules for character creation (using a now-familiar lifepath and skill acquisition mechanic); Indian tribe creation; equipment and weapon tables; a selection of vehicles and animals; and fast town creation. There are even rules to help you choose skill specialties, run the inevitable showdown at high noon, and determine what happens when you just as inevitably get sick or see that twister coming.

Under Western Skies. The West is as Wild as you make it.

Hello? How about a preview that is actually a preview. I have Cowboys vs. Aliens, which is an excellent supplement, but I'm curious as to how yours looks. Can you actually post a page or two - something with a career or something with some meat on it?

If this were in print and your description provided any useful details, I might be interested. What have you done to make Traveller suit the setting? Have you done research or is it just "Hollywood Western" where every place and every year is treated interchangeably? (That is, a town in southern Arizona should be utterly distinct from one in Wyoming or Kansas, the telegraph and railroad made its way to certain places only by certain dates, different firearms may not exist depending on your start date and availability is affected by location.)

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.
