Cowtown Creator

If you enjoy the Western setting in the mid to late 1800's in the USA, you'll enjoy this book. Not only is it a great primer on what one might encounter in an American western cowtown, it has a really simple but flavor filled encounter/scenario generator. Stuck for a period name for your character? No problem! This book offers nearly endless possibilities for literally countless hours for ANY western role playing game! Highly recommended and is a great value for the money in this reviewer's opinion.
