This rulebook contains everything players need to ready their
characters for the Shattered Frontier! Combat, weapons, horses, skill,
equipment and more are covered, along with detailed character
generation and professional advancement! With no levels or classes (and
only gaining experience in skills used), characters can change
professions at will, just like the Old West!
By far the most deluxe western ever produced, this softcover rides
into town with 224 full color pages crammed with beautiful period
artwork! Yes, the Aces & Eights: Shattered Frontier RPG
is the highest quality, most complete western ever marketed in the
adventure game industry.
First, there’s the innovative and visual Shot Clock
game aids, which eliminate the abstraction and complexity of other RPGs
– a player can actually see the cover, position and location of his or
her target! Of course, the Shot Clock game aids aren’t the only
innovation in the Aces & Eights game. The realistically
deadly combat supports an overall game system that rewards characters
for pursuing professions, giving players the in-game incentives to do
much more than follow the outlaw trail.
Gamers interested in the history, nations, and the rest of the major
western movie adventure 'mini-games' beyond the gunfight (prospecting,
cattle drives, frontier justice, advanced brawling and chases, and so
on) should check out the Aces & Eights core rulebook, which also
includes all the material you'll find in the Player's Guidebook.
