Six-shooter: Bringing the Wild West to D&D!

Six-shooter is intended for people looking to play a Wild West themed campaign using the 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons ruleset. It is provided in four parts, the first three for players and the last for DMs/GMs, but you can pick and choose what you like from any of the rules provided.

The first part introduces a system for running and generating firearms, different types of revolvers and shotguns. With a Wild West theme comes the assumption that most folks will carry a revolver. The aim of the system is for guns to have slight differences that set them apart from each other, so they're not all identical in game terms. It also provides rules for a few additional actions you can take in combat, making it feel a little more tactical.

Six-Shooter's new 1.3 update features a visual design overhaul, cleaned up rules mechanics, and minor tweaks and fixes here and there. There's also a single page cheat sheet (separate download) summarizing most rules you might need to look up during combat.

The other parts of Six-shooter are titled:

And you can also download the custom character sheet separately (form-fillable, printer friendly).

Thank you for your interest!

Hey, My friend Bought this and he was showing me since I'm a bit of a gun nut. I looked through it and it is very well made, you've done some good research and conversion, though I did notice something missing. I was looking through the Firing Mechanisms and I realized you missed one, you forgot the Fixed Cylinder/Loading Gate Mechanism. Here's a link with a bit of info on it I hope this helps.

Thanks for the link. I'm not sure if I missed it initially or just skipped over it since there were a lot of different types of handgun mechanisms already on the list. I guess if you wanted to have one in the game, it would need to have the restriction that it can't benefit from moon clips or other fast-loading implements.

Any plans for including rifles? Or is there another resource that covers rifles already?

There are some general thoughts/guidelines on how rifles might work differently compared to handguns/shotguns in part 4 under the heading "What About Rifles?".

Its a bit too wordy for 5e In my opinion. Simplification would serve this well.

Thanks for the input. Rather than rewriting a whole bunch of it, do you think a quick one page summary of the rules/mechanical stuff would clarify/help?

With the new update I also included a one page cheat sheet. A couple of things have been removed from the rules overall, to make them a little less complex.

Sure, I should be able to put up alternate downloadable files over the weekend. I should at least be able to remove the background texture and make the images black & white.

Ok, new files should be available for all four parts now. I corrected a few typos and such along the way, but not much else has changed. There's a new table at the end of part four that includes several more (randomly generated) guns! And some info on speedloaders and moon clips and stuff, but that's about it. Anyway, all the new stuff is at the end of part four.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
