All right, I'm running a weird west campaign. I require art assets for this kind of thing, and musical inspiration. Right now, I have the basics of the setting, but I'm gonna need some new stuff to help flesh out the setting and bring my storytelling to life.
So if you have pictures displaying scenes, character art, and landscapes, please share them in this thread. And in case someone else is running a similar game, I shall be sharing these kinds of things too. Musical and literature inspiration would be awesome too.

If you want, you can ask me anything as well. My basic general plan is for the PCs to start off with some typical old west issues. Race wars, lynching, bringing in ne'er do-wells. Then I'll move them to some different supernatural stuff, starting with basic hauntings and zombies. Eventually we're going to move into a recreation of Innsmouth in a California port town that doesn't actually exist.

I don't have Deadlands books. I'll look on /rs/ for them. I've already decided the system, and I'm not really here to discuss mechanics, since the system will do its job.
That said, I'm also looking to involve a bit of my inspiration from Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane works. Are his stories about Cowboys and Boxers as good as his Conan and Kane works?

Most of the Deadlands books you can rip the setting right out of.

Though it's a modern design, 4 gauges were in fact used in this time. Fun fact: Cowboy action shooters use 12 gauges for all shotguns, when the most common gauge of that time was 10 gauge.

In the first session I actually gave the PCs one of these. a .410 derringer, a bit oversized, but it might or might not be magical.
So how appropriate would it be to have a boxing event, or a horse race, or some kind of state fair? Did that stuff really only get popular in the 20th century?

>> No.16069611

Rodeo type events definitely happened...mostly as a result of "I'm better than you" "nuh-uhs" that didn't end in fights and the like. Not full on in the modern sense, but cutting, barrel races, calf roping, and other skill exhibition type things. Also, remember a lot of cowboys used the same cartridge in their pistol as they did their rifle to keep from having to carry more than one kind of ammo.

I actually had a rather intimate thread with /k/ about what weapons, and calibers/gauges to allow in this game. It was successful.

>> No.16069662

I'm going to look that kind of stuff up. I'm sure my PCs wouldn't be interested in participating, as none of them are true cowboys. I've got a formerly rich, now gambling gunslinger, a gun-toting nun who preaches hellfire and brimstone and alot of hatred with her big-game rifle, and a person who totally hasn't made their backstory, but they're focusing on summoning outsiders and looking for forbidden, old magics.
To be fair, man number three's roleplaying ability has atrophied because of his old group.

In a setting with magic in the wild west, could automated horses be around? Maybe on a one-in-a-million chance? It doesn't fit the setting on the western side, but it could be a part of the weird west or fantasy part.

literal mechanical horses, sure. don't know about motorcycles though

>> No.16070241

1885 is the year the first motorcycle was made.
Here's a bit of the summary on the development of internal combustion engines.
Of course, electric and steam engines came out at this time.
But I tend to agree with you that such contraptions don't really fit a western, since such technology was not THERE at that time, or this stuff was so bleeding edge that it never saw the light of day.
