Six-Shooters & Wagons - Professions

Six-Shooters & Wagons may mechanically play very much like Swords & Wizardry Continual Light but outside of the mechanics it is a completely different style of gaming.
Fantasy is more focused on PC personal gain while Western is more focused on community gain. In SSW your class determines what your character can do mechanically within the game rules but your profession determines who your character is within the world.

Here is a list of professions that your characters could be in SSW:
Banker 
Barber 
Butcher
Cowboy 
Deputy
Doctor
Gambler
Hired Gun 
Judge
Marshal (Town or US)
Mayor
Merchant
Missionary 
Preacher
Prospector
Prostitute
Railroad Worker
Rancher 
Saloon Worker (Bartender, Piano Player, Owner, etc.)
Sheriff
Teacher 

What role does your character play within the Western game world? Your character's class may be the Gunslinger but their role in the town could be a number of things. Who's to say the Missionary isn't a Gunslinger? Or what about the Mayor of the town is a Vigilante?

Just remember that the class helps define the mechanics but a profession helps defines the character.

  1. I like it. I do want to include something like this when I do an expansion to the game.
