A brand new One-Page Adventure!
Though, for this one I will be calling it a One-Page Episode.
Blood Mask & Envy is a One-Page Episode designed to be used for Six-Shooters & Wagons. Six-Shooters & Wagons is a Wild West hack for Swords & Wizardry Continual Light by Justin R. Isaac of Halls of the Nephilim.
Six-Shooters & Wagons is Pay What You Want so there really isn't any reason why you shouldn't get it. I have a review of the game that can be found here. I mentioned in a previous blog how I wanted to focus on this game system to support other writers/creators like myself who love the Swords & Wizardry system and love to create for it.
Why One-Page Episode? Well, I feel that for this system it isn't like a typical fantasy adventure that takes the party into new and exotic lands. Most westerns tend to take place in and around the same location. The Wild West was about survival and the hardships that came. Most western TV series, movies and books took place in the same location. And instead of the characters going out and finding danger and excitement, the danger and excitement came to them. So that is why it is called a One-Page Episode. It is just one episode in the entire series. I imagine that the games that are being ran using this system have a lot of character development and community building. PCs are part of the community in someway whether they are key leaders or just residents of the town. They are not adventurers looking for treasure and fame. They are just people trying to survive in the world they live in.
Blood Mask & Envy is an episode that takes place on a train that is going to a town. The town isn't important and is left open for the GM to create the town and the surrounding area for future sessions. And with this episode it could easily be the starter session to get the PCs from the train to the town that the rest of the series will take place. This episode is about a train robbery, an envious man and a bloodthirsty killer.
