Monster of the Week: Wild West Style

About the adventure
Yee haw! it's Monster of the Week: Wild West Style! Head back in time to a supernatural version of the Wild West as we reskin our Monster of the Week playbooks to fit Wild West tropes. Perhaps the Divine is now a God-touched preacher, the Wronged is a gunslinger with no name, the Monstrous is a Skinwalker. Let's see what happens when we take monster hunting to the Wild, Weird West! No experience necessary--learn as we play. Every game is different, so come for more than one!
How to prepare
You'll need a computer/phone/tablet/something and a decent mic for connecting to the internet and to Zoom. You'll also need two six-sided dice. And that's pretty much it.
What I provide
I will bring the descriptions. Loads and loads of descriptions (though you'll have a chance at doing some of that, too), plus ambient music, imagery, and ... monsters. Lots and lots of monsters.
This game will contain horror, gore, and mature themes not suitable for every gamer. That said, the GM likes to keep things PG-13 to Lovecraftian-horror R-Rated. We will also talk about, and use, gaming safety tools such as lines, veils, and the X Card.
- Alcohol Use
- Body Horror
- Real World Religion

- Open Door

How will character creation work
Monster of the Week is a role-playing game based on the Powered By the Apocalypse game engine. It is rules-light with easy character creation based on 'playbooks' -- character archetypes. I'll have you pick out a playbook beforehand (one 'type' per player, so we won't have two Monstrous, or three Wronged) and then we'll finish character creation at the beginning of the session. But if you join the Discord (link in the prep materials when you join the game), we can talk about how to reskin the playbook you've chosen to fit the Wild West aesthetic we're going for.
