By far the most deluxe western role-playing game ever produced, this
427-page, thoroughly bookmarked and indexed PDF rides into town
with 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. Just be
sure to keep plenty of tissue nearby - the drool-factor on this product
is through the roof!
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. For instance, the
game has a new poker chip-based brawling system that solves the problem
of “temporary” damage; characters actually become winded, tired or
knocked senseless in the fight. 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.
In addition, the Aces & Eights RPG is the first
western to not just allow, but focus on, the rest of the major western
movie adventures beyond the gunfight. Prospecting, cattle drives,
frontier justice, and so on, all have a complete “mini game” system
tailored for that type of adventure. In fact, the Aces & Eights
game has over two score available professions covering the full range
of possibilities in the Wild West! With no levels or classes (and only
gaining experience in skills used), characters can change professions
at will, just like the Old West!
The full-color maps and 25 pages of history provide such details as
minor politicians and military officers (based on real historical
figures), making the background spring to life like no other game has.
And with the USA, CSA, Republic of Texas, Deseret, Mexico, France,
England and dozens of Indian nations all vying for control of this
alternate history setting, the Shattered Frontier is far wilder than
the historical Wild West ever was!
Whether you prefer simple shoot-'em-ups or on-going campaigns, this
is the western RPG you simply can’t afford to miss!
