Pinnacle Entertainment Group, perhaps best known for Deadlands, has announced a source book for its Savage Worlds role-playing game based on The Sixth Gun, the supernatural Western comic created by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt.
“I’ve long said that the world of The Sixth Gun would make a great setting for a role-playing game,” Bunn wrote on his website. “If you agree with me, then you should get your dice ready.”
Set in the American West in the aftermath of the Civil War, the Oni Press series centers around six pistols of otherworldly power. The most dangerous of the weapons, the Sixth Gun of the title, vanishes, only to resurface in the hands of an innocent girl, reawakening dark forces. Villains believed long dead set their sights on the pistol, and only the gunslinger Drake Sinclair stands in their way.
No release date has been announced for the source book. However, you can see the initial details from the announcement below:
The Sixth Gun series comes to RPGs! The First of the Six strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads Perdition’s flames. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. And the Sixth is the key to rewriting the world. Are you ready to saddle up and ride into the savage world of The Sixth Gun? Based on the Eisner and Harvey Award nominated comic series from Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurt, and Oni Press. Watch for more details to come, as well as more accessories, including custom miniatures of the characters from the comics!
