A map that comes into being when a truly damned man is hung. It leads to a tree where that man and all the other damned that have met the gallows hang.
These damned are oracles that know all things, and will answer any question, if you have something to offer. See, the spirits hate being awoken and want all these maps to be burned. They will trade any and all answers in exchange for this.
Some say the tree will speak to men without maps to burn, but only if those men are destined to hang from the tree themselves someday...

The Dead Saddle-An old leather saddle, looks to be ancient, covered in stitching and patches. Putting the saddle on any horse causes the stallion to turn into an undead horse for as long as the saddle is worn. Cutting a piece of the leather and placing it on the chest of a dead body can cause the corpse to rise, allowing it to speak and chat for as long as the leather stays on it's chest.

Wild Boots-Anyone who wears these boots has a chance to enter into a berserk state when the sun goes down, the state causes them to become increasingly strong, fast and resistant the longer the boots stay on them.

Long Ranch Shotgun-A shotgun haunted by the spirits of an old ranch, any shell fired from this gun will turn into a spiritual bull that will rush the direction it was fired at, vanishing at the end of the shots range.

Devil Spurs-A pair of spurs that, once spun, cover the heels of the boots in hells fire

A revolver made of mighty steel, embossed in silver, with intricate engravings and a very thick barrel. It's grip made of carved ivory. when fired at a criminal, it inflicts a powerful blindness and dementia on the lawbreaker, as well as the damage of a regular bullet. it feels like greasy thistles in the hands of an evildoer.

A Spencer vest woven from ivory silk and embroidered with hairs plucked from the mane of a white stallion. it's front is adorned with buttons made of silver. When worn, it acts as a safeguard, allowing it's wearer to escape any trap once a day, and ward off evil.

An old brass pocket watch, appears like it was made from random scraps and bits, but works perfectly. The watch is never at the right time. Once per day the watch can be opened and the owner can see events that occurred, or will occur 10 minutes in the future or past. The effect travels with the owner, so s/he can walk around while viewing.

A dark red rope, about 50 meters of rope, the whole thing is frayed and looks like it's soaked in blood. If you lasso something with the rope it suffers damage as if it were bleeding for as long as the rope stays lassoed on it.

Clean Shaver - A straight-razor that never loses its edge, and can shave a layer off of anything (fruit, firearms, human limbs, etc), but any attempt to split down the middle or sever anything will be met with resistance as if the razor is dull.

Shining Armor Leather Polish - A dusty tin of leather polish. Whenever one uses this on a leather garment they wear, all who perceive them will feel a faint glimmer of hope in their hearts.

Dream's Wings Poncho - Should anyone wear this faded poncho and sleep during daylight hours, they will enter into a deep sleep, envisioning themselves as a hawk, osprey, or similar bird perched on the shoulder of their sleeping form. They can then move about freely in this dream-form, and the world they perceive is precisely the same as the real one, save that the bird is non-corporeal and does not exist. After two hours, the dream ends.

Lucky Old Sun - An ancient gold Spanish coin with a bullet hole clean through the center. It can be thrown with unerring accuracy, and will always strike any singular location on any target. It does not return to its owner's hand of its own volition after being thrown, however.

A vial with lesser demon encased in it. You can only acquire it, by buying from previous owner for money. Then, as long as it is in your possession, fortune will be making you rich. You will be finding treasures, winning lotteries and gambles and rich people will be keen to lend you money.
However, as long as you possess the demon, you soul belongs to the devil. If you die without selling it to a different person, you will be damned to hell.

The catch is- you can only sell it for lesser price, than you bought it.

Once used the watch will lock again for a day and cannot be opened. The chain and key can be removed.

An old piano that when played can cause everyone who hears it to start fighting. The brawlers will continue to fight until the music stops. Then they will return to normal without remembering anything that happened since the music started.

A carriage, it appears to be quite fancy, as if used by rich folks. The carriage can summon undead steeds to pull it, but only at night. It can hold four people, plus a driver. The carriage will travel in a straight line straight to the chosen destination, if objects are in it's way the horses will smash through it without stopping, it will run straight up or down inclined terrain (mountains and rocks and such) and run right over water. Once the sun rises the steeds will vanish instantly and the carriage will become useless

A duster that, when covering a dying man, allows that man a painless and swift death. One use only.

The arm of Stonewall Jackson, preserved and wrapped in the strips of a tattered Confederate army uniform. When tied to the user's own arm, it instills a powerful and eventually permanent paranoia and secrecy, but also gives the user the ability to shrug off otherwise-fatal wounds. The arm can only be detached with a blood sacrifice, preferably of an experienced rifleman.

A silver dollar that, when flipped always comes up heads, unless you put your life, your gun, your horse, or your love on the line.

A finely crafted six-shooter inlaid with gold filigree and pearl handles. The revolver always looks worn and tarnished no matter how much it is cleaned, yet works smoothly and without problems. The cylinder cannot removed or opened by any means and is engraved with various Hebrew, Greek and Latin words. Even though the gun cannot be loaded it still fires like an ordinary gun, except the intended victim is spontaneously sacrificed and a demon under the command of the shooter is summoned from the gun. Once all six shots are fired the gunman's body and soul are consumed by the gun to fuel the demons trapped within.

Badges of the Oathbound Posse: 7 badges of silver consecrated with the blood of a legendary sheriff. When a group of people make a vow to accomplish a noble task together (protect this town from bandits, hunt down the head of an outlaw gang) the badges confer several effects while they are worn. Members of the group may communicate with each other telepathically 3/day and may "borrow" the unique skills of a fellow posse member 1/day. So long as all bandges are within a half mile of each other, the posse's guns never run out of bullets.

Cogwort's Versatile Bandoleer: Contains bullets of every shape and size which mystically replenish themselves when one is drawn. The bandoleer always has the exact ammo needed for the gun of its wearer and it's wearer's posse, and the wearer instinctively picks the ones he needs without having to search through the bullets.

A Holster for a normal revolver, its made of a strange kind of leather, with arcane markings.

The Owner of the holster doesn't bleed from any wound received. No matter how traumatic the wound. If he takes the holster off before the wound has been healed however, he takes all previous wounds again.

(Effect, The Owner does not bleed from his wounds, and can never take more then 1 wound from any attack, and can still be shaken. This also makes the owner immune from vampire feeding attempts. It does have its downsides. You dont bleed, and people do tend to notice that after a firefight, -2 to notice checks.

Also if the holster is removed, the owner takes all unhealed wounds again automatically. )

Coffin Nails. During the Civil War, when President Lincoln freed all the slaves, the owners of a tobacco plantation entered a psychotic rage and murdered all of their slaves, who wanted to flee to the north. They then used their dead bodies to fertilize the fields. The whole family was executed by the horrified Union soldiers that found them and heard their brutal story. To this day the plantation is uninhabitted, but deliveries of their tobacco arrives and random intervals at random trading posts all around the country.

Cigarettes rolled with the tobacco have a strange flavor, and the smoke has the strange property, under certain conditions, to take the form of the dead and allow the smoker to communicate with them.

Life of Danger Weekly: A dime novel that seems blank. The owner can pay a dime and a drop of blood to get a vague description of the worst danger he or she will face in the coming week; the more you feed the book, the better the description. If you try to avoid the peril in a cowardly or heaven forbid /boring/ manner, it ends up finding you anyway.
