One of the first games I picked up from Sivad's Sanctum, and as the months go on I just keep going back to it. IN THE LIGHT OF A SETTING SUN is a genre classic, leaning in to big stakes under an unforgiving sky. If you're thinking about picking it up, I'd definitely vouch for it.
I did a visual review of this game HERE.
I need a rule clarification. It says, "If an attack proves unsuccessful, whether by a cowpoke or an opponent, then the intended party can make an attack in return." Does "intended party" mean the defender? I assume it does but it is not clear to me.
This is awesome to see you continue to evolve your work into something bigger and bigger. Love the look of the game as a whole, lots of good info and mechanics in here that is excellent. A true example of an artist at work.
Interested to see what future projects look like.
"Roll d6 equal to a cowpoke’s IRN in order to determine their Luck (LCK), which reflects their ability to avoid injury and death."
does this mean if a cowpoke has IRN 12 you roll 12d6 for their LCK? seems high to me which makes me think I'm reading it wrong.
Love the look, feel of this game.
That's correct! It may seem high, but the exploding damage dice really eat away at those high numbers.
I love the look and I hope you get some action on this. Can't wait for Yonder btw! Yeehaw
