Welcome to the Beyond, pard. Beyond what? Beyond hope or help, beyond safety and security. Unfortunately, not beyond the reach of the Law or the Civ, or the ever-avaricious Corporations. Beyond just about everything that you’ve been told is necessary to survive, though. But that’s ok. Dust yourself off, pick yourself up, and let’s take a stroll...

Magitech Space Western is a card-based hack of Powered by the Apocalypse, using a standard set of playing cards to determine the outcomes of actions instead of dice. It also includes variants of Poker and Blackjack to abstract player conflict and vehicle action, respectively.

This is an ashcan version of Magitech Space Western. It is fully playable, both for short and long term play, but is not a final version.

What is included:

  •  A rulebook with sections detailing all current game mechanics, a quick setup guide, and suggestions for running the game.
  • Six playbooks -- unique character archetypes that will influence the kind of story you tell.
  • A stand-alone collection of the basic moves and hold moves.

The ultimate goal is a full release -- any funding this project receives will go right back into development. Thanks for giving us a shot, pard!

I love this game so much, I love the magic, I love the tech, I love the western! I've gotten in starship battles with space cops, I've been accosted by skull demons, I've fallen in love and died and then gone to Space-ylvania. This game is amazing and brilliant.

Gotta watch out for those space cops.  xD

Thanks so much! I very much appreciate it!
