I purposefully made the rules for Dueling vague so judges would be able to make their own interpretations and judgments. Myself, I determine it to be a 50/50 shot whether an opponent is merely wounded, or killed outright. This makes Dueling as scary as I imagine it to be, as this means a player gambles with the life of their cowpoke with every confrontation. Writing about this now, I can't help but imagine making this into a tournament bracket con game where players face off in Duel after Duel, leaving one cowpoke to reap the rewards and the carnage.
In the Light of a Setting Sun
A downloadable Pen and Paper RPG
Beween the years 1860 and 1900, many a cowpoke roamed the western frontiers. Bloody gunfights, tragic duels, and harsh winters claimed countless lives during this period. A cowpoke had to be crafty in order to survive out in the wilderness; they needed all at their disposal in order to deal with the outlaws, bounty hunters, and wildlife which called that no-man's land home.
Based on Nate Treme's impeccable In the Light of a Ghost Star, In the Light of a Setting Sun promises gunslinging action in a small and easily transportable pamphlet. Hit the open trail with your posse and see what trouble you can stir up with this simple and easy to read ruleset!
