For some reason, Italy has a long tradition of western comics. The biggest one is Tex Willer, which has been going on since the 50es and is, IMO, a great source of inspiration for gonzo western games. I don't know if they've ever been translated though.

Quick Google search says some issues were translated to English by some UK company and Dark Horse published original Tex story in English.

And with this I consider my contribution to the thread completed, and retire. I hope these pictures were a decent inspiration.

Not realli. Spaghetti western were mostly shot in the seventies, these pulp comics came out in the fifties if not earlier. Probably both are expressions of a desire for adventure and almost mythical stories about a far away land. It's all a reinterpretation of an iconography, far removed from the original thing. But it can still be quite interesting.

Op here. Might post the first page of the setting when I get home.
My first mission for the pcs I think is going to be dealing with a small tribe of apaches that have been horse theivin and kindapping people around the small mining town they start in.

On another note, I need racist slurs for the general setting.
Mostly Indians.
I've got so far:
bow benders
tree ni***s
feather necks
There's a Mexican gun smith npc that is sort of a criminal as well, could use some Mexican slang words for white guys too..

You could run RuneQuest 6/Mythras with their firearm module. Good magic systems in it.

if you're not too wedded to realism, you might find this useful (either way its pretty amusing)
