NTRPGCon 2017: Pregens for Six Bullets In Bustamante

Below are the pregens I put together for the Mini Six powered western I ran at NTRPGCon 2017. In addition to the game information, each includes the text of the mysterious telegram that they received to draw them into the action. Note also that I drew quite a bit from WilD6 West, a nifty western implementation of Mini Six put together by the same hombre who puts out The Mighty Six superhero thang.

    This one looks juicy. Love the alliterative title. I especially like the telegraph messages as a way to drop hints both about the character and the upcoming adventure.

    By the way, the Tucson ‘Hotel Garnet’ is in AZ, not NM!

      NM, AZ. Whatever. All those not-TX places are the same anyway 🙂

      I kid, I kid. I truly don’t know how that wound up as NM, since I definitely know where your fair city is. I’ll blame hurried, drunken, careless monkeys that broke into my house while I was sleeping. Kinda like really bad shoemaker’s elves. But hey, at least they were thinking of you, amigo!

      I have corrected their work, but, so that future generations will know not to trust them, I shall leave these passages in place.

        I’ve got those same monkeys! For some reason they keep drinking all my 7-Up and Canadian Club. Curse them!
