Additional Details

How to prepare

The only preparation a player will need to do is have discord installed, be ready to play, and have a basic character idea. The character does not have to be created or fully developed it can be something as simple as a lawman or teacher to a Texas Ranger that is done with all of the bureaucracy or a banker that is trying to start a new less criminal life.

What I provide

I will bring the rulebook, have a story prepared for them, and a 24/7 server devoted to the game.

Gameplay details

This game is a play by post game and considered to be active "24/7." Players can interact with one another at anytime on the server provided. Boothill is an older game that relies on a percentile system. The stats are rather simple and straightforward, just like the game. Most of the experience is through gunfights, but considering this is a living game, you gain experience at least once a week for playing. Safety Tools: I use two major safety tools, X card and lines and veils, with weekly check ins. The X card can be used at any point if a participant is uncomfortable with the content happening in-game. When the X card is used by tapping the card or typing an “X” in the chat, the group can change, rewind, or skip the content. Lines: are subjects that are never brought up or into the game, any player may add to the list. The current lines are: Sexual Assault of any kind. Veils: are subjects that are alluded to but never directly brought up or into the game, any player may add to this list as well. The current veils are: domestic abuse. Weekly Check Ins: is where I ask the group before each game if there is any Lines or Veils that the players would like to add to the list whether on a permanent basis or temporarily considering life happens and we are not fully active in each other's life.

How will character creation work

There is no levels with the characters. I will go over character creation with the players to make sure that they have a character that they enjoy and works well with others. However, if a player wishes to create a character on their own and being checked by me they are more than welcome to.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
  • Roleplay: High
  • Puzzles: Low
  • Experience Level: None
