D A R K V A L L E Y a basic roleplaying adventure by don jolly v.1.1 dark cedars climb the slope of somber hills. the passes ring with the calls of wildcats. Here come the warm spring rains, the gifts of dreaming Texas. Here come the trappers, through the dark, truding with strange pelts in tow. Dark Valley, Texas. Which men may never leave. Dark Valley is a campaign for Basic Roleplaying that I'm currently running for my group up here in Brooklyn. It's a western setting with a few interesting wrinkles and five intersecting storylines in which the player characters have a chance to intervene. I've run a few sandbox games before, but the flexibility of BRP expanded the scope of that sandbox tremendously. I don't want to give anything away, but I will say a few things: this module contains a giant feathered tyrannosaurus rex and a church where old issues of Amazing Stories are considered modern scripture. In terms of structure, I tried to emulate the better 1990s CRPGs -- think of the selection of quests and encounters that make up the original Fallout and you've got the idea.

Aces High is a mythical western supplement. It’s a different time, a time where violence is an everyday occurrence on the frontier of Civilization. A time of six gun shoot outs, red skins on the war path, dying cowboys under a desert sun. A time where the people drag a living from the land of dreams. Violence is an everyday occurrence on the frontier of Civilization. Dust swirls around a crimson sun, reminding every one of their possible success, telling them of their mortality. Prospectors are raping the hills for precious metals; dumping their waste in the fresh, clear rivers. Buffalo hunters slaughter vast herds of buffalo for their valuable pelts, leaving a wake of rotting carcasses, a mountain of bone and skulls. The Law can barely cope, as lynch mobs leave cadavers hanging from the trees. The Redskins fight for their very existence, caught between death and degradation. The old powers cannot compete with the new power from the East. By Stuart Godbolt. 112 pages. Published by Chaosium March 2009.
