This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I'm new here, and this is my first attempt at publishing something, but I would really like to get the word out and share it with the community.

It is a Zorro inspired swashbuckling world along the new Spanish Main of California; it is a gritty, steampunk, gold, weird west, in an unexplored and beautiful frontier. This Alt’ California is a Flintlock RPG campaign setting in an alt-history after 1812. It includes dozens of tables, hooks, and ideas for endless settlements, travel, and dungeons adventure.

I have no affiliation with Pinnacle, but I am quite the fan of SWADE. The timing of their latest kickstarter is amusing to me, over the last year or so I ran a Deadlands: Japan game that might have made good use of the new rules that will surely come with this. Anyway, Legend of Ghost Mountain, a mythic martial arts setting/plot point campaign for SWADE opened this week. Check it out if you're so inclined

I also have no association with Go0fius, but I wanted to comment that I really liked the download that he linked here. Your one page rules summary answered a list of questions I was going to ask. Nicely done, sir.

Hello all again,
Well, I did it, I launched my first Kickstarter. I have been putting this book together and its pretty much finished. It contains my own research, art & photography. It is an RPG setting based in an alt’ history of 1812 California and it is intentionally very OSR friendly.
It’s on Kickstarter now, published as pdf and print-on-demand on DriveThruRPG.
I really want to share it with this community, and hope to generate some momentum to get the word out. Please feel free share the link with friends, download the sample and post a review on DriveThruRPG.

Interesting looking "OSR" parody game, designed for one shots run. In an age of rpgs coming out what seems like daily, it is refreshing to see one that is trying something different vibe wise. Everything takes itself so serious nowadsy that seeing something that is just unapologetically silly just stands out.

The art is exceptional, Roberto Toderico reminds me of old 80s 2000AD stuff. I also love the heavy metal vibe it the art has as well. That mix of Horror, Scifi and Fantasy. I think it really fits the project ideals with it being so crazy.

The game has some strange ideas in it.. like you can "win". Players and the Dm both gain XP via the tables and generated content and this XP is used in the final showdown were the players and the DM go head to head vs each other. (?!) In addition to this sort of players vs DM thing going on and the book, from my understanding, is mainly a massive list of tables and other generators. The idea is that there is no prep-time. You just rock on and start playing in a very free form way creating content on the fly. Every player question (I assume within reason) forces a die roll that pushes the game into new directions. So the DM has to adjust to these new plot direction which are out of his control.

I have no idea if this is going to be good or not. All I do know is that to me, it feels different, that that ain't a bad thing.


(I'm not connected to this project in any way, just saw it on my feed this morning while eating my wet-box before work)
