Default Rider, the Cepheus Engine Western, has arrived!

Rider has arrived!

Rider is now available in PDF at Drive-thru RPG and the Independence Games webstore.

DTRPG: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...iliate_id=7330

IG Webstore: https://independencerpgs.com/collect...products/rider

Howdy partner! Welcome to the Old West!

The American frontier has always been a source of American mythology and has been explored in novels, on the stage, and on film and television. Now, with Rider, you can enter the world of the Old West.

Rider uses the Cepheus Engine rules as a base with modifications made to fit with the "Old West" setting. Rider draws inspiration from both fictional and historical Western lore but definitely sides with fictional portrayals.

Rider features improvements on the character generation system you will find in Clement Sector and Earth Sector. While we continue to follow the Independence Games tradition of giving characters full backstories, Rider gives the player a greater control over that backstory while maintaining the fun of random character generation.

Rider features numerous details on gambling, drugs and alcohol, weapons, and what one might find in a Western town. The game has 23 Career Paths with everything from Homesteaders to Vagabonds. You'll find Clergy, Doctors, Gunslingers, Con Artists, Soldiers, Outlaws, and many more. Rider has our quick NPC generation system as found in Ensemble Cast along with special rules for train heists, bank robberies, and, of course, the showdown at High Noon!

Are you ready for a new adventure? Then saddle up and get ready to ride!

Purchased. It will take a while to get through 354 pages though.

Thanks! That's the longest book my company has produced and I pulled some things back to keep it at the length it currently is.

The hardcover version of Rider, our Cepheus Engine Western, is now available at Drive-thru RPG. I expect the softcover to be available at some point in the next week or so.

A convenient and easy to use "fillable" character sheet PDF has been added to Rider. If you purchased Rider from DTRPG, the character sheet PDF has already been added to your library under the Rider entry. Big thanks to Ian Stead for his work on this.

If you purchased Rider any other way, you can go to our webstore and download the sheet for free at this link:

Have a good weekend!
