I really doubt it will be either, but I just wanted to get my say in.
There was a recent D20 game that was touted as being "historical" but when I got it, it had two core classes that could cast spells. So I'm a little cautious now when a historical game I'm interested in is announced.
I still plan on buying this book, but I gotta say that I am little disapointed that it is going to be straight historical. Sidewinder:Recoiled is straight historical, and that was the reason I held off on it for Wild West OGL.
Oh well. Thanks for the details. Looking forward to the finished product. Any idea when this will be coming out?
I plan on utlising real life events and historical characters in my OGL Wild West campaigns and submitting at least one article to Signs and Portents drawing on some of my own family history as my great, great grandmother was a circus rider with Buffalo Bill Cody at the turn of the last century.
I am looking forward to this book as well! At least when I have it in my hands and have read it from cover to cover I can start working on my southwestern flavored Indians and Shmanism type campaign! I just hope itll be good enough to see print one day!
