Gun Deck (PDF)

Guns are at the heart of any good western rpg, and Aces & Eights is no exception. The gun deck is a 71-card PDF deck ó each card featuring a specific ≠≠≠≠≠≠≠≠≠≠≠≠≠pistol or rifle from the Aces and Eights core rule book, which you can print on any desired cardstock or paper. All the information you need is about a specific weapon is on one card for easy reference.

Of course, reference normally isnít a problem because players have the information for their character's weapons on their sheets, and the GM does likewise for his NPCs.

However, what happens when a playerís gun jams in the middle of a skirmish? As he throws the worthless piece of iron to the side and scrambles to grab a shotgun from the bled-out body of a comrade, play suddenly stops. Books are pulled out as the player records the information for the new weapon and applies his charactersí modifiers. Possibly a player taps on that General Store depicted on the town map and says, ďI walk in and ask the proprietor if he has any guns for sale. Iím looking for a Colt.Ē Gun Deck to the rescue!

In the situation above you could rule the proprietor keeps a small selection of pistols behind the counter. Simply deal out 1d6 gun cards and hand them to the player saying, ďIím afraid this is all I have at the moment...Ē Alternatively, letís say a player fires his last shot at the large man coming up the stairs to ruin his day. As the bear of a man goes down in a heap, the player announces heís grabbing his would-be-killerís pistol and jumping out the window. Fan through the deck, find the gun the NPC was carrying, and hand it to the player.

Itís a simple game aid but incredibly useful, especially in large skirmish battles when weapons are being discarded and retrieved from fallen bodies...
