Blaze of Glory: Wild West Campaign Setting

Forty-two page supplement 17 which are actual rules, 17 pages worth of a so-called setting, 1 page of index, & 4 pages of crappy maps. The rest is worthless. You have to own Golgotha Games’ “Spiritual Warfare” core rules to use this supplement.

This product is not worth what I paid for it. Where is the supernatural aspect of the game (a few Rhema, which is similar to spells, will not suffice)? The one page intro tries to explain what is going on but I can not figure out exactly what “is going on.” The only setting is a typical wild west town with no supernatural within its borders nor outside of it either. There is no stats on Angels or demons. The core “Spiritual Warfare” rules did not even have stats for a bestiary. There is no random event generator like in the core book either pertaining specifically to the west United States. The Old West slang section (2 pages) is sparse ( I have better resources than this section). The maps at the back of the book of “some” (5 total) buildings is awful (crap really). There is hardly any information on the American West throughout the supplement.

I am very disappointed. I wanted to have some sort of fleshed out Weird West setting to fight demons in the wild wild west. Demons and Gunslingers? Where are they? If you are looking for horror or the strange west you would be better to pick up “Werewolf: The Wild West” “All Flesh Must Be Eaten: Fistfull ‘O Zombies”, or “Deadlands”. If you want straight up Old West then look to purchase “Coyote Trail”, “GURPS: Wild West”, “Gunslingers & Gamblers”, “Boot Hill”, “Dust Devils Revenged”, Aces & Eights”, or “True20 Wild West”.

If I could I would like a refund or at least ½ of the purchase price back. Skip this product unless you really want to teach people scripture from the Bible or to role-play morality lessons (which is a good thing and then I would bump the rating to 3 stars).

There was nothing inherently WRONG with the idea of a movie about *Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter* - it combines two of our favorite genres. What sunk the movie (other than a deliciously ludicrous title) was inept handling. If we're going to combine horror with the Wild West, we really need to do it well!

*Blaze of Glory* does it very well indeed.

Like its parent game of *Spiritual Warfare* (which you'll probably want also, though *Blaze* adapts well to many other rulesets), PCs will increase their chances of survival by gaining experience and knowledge of the mechanics of the universe. Knowing how to use an anti-demonic spell is as important as knowing when NOT to use it. Your average cowpokes are just as likely to not recognize the good guys from the bad, and the PCs will not gain friends by throwing lightning bolts about.

Strongly recommended -- and reallllly fun gamemasters will throw in some historical and legendary figures. I'm dying to see how Brett Maverick would react to a gambler who was being backed by Lucifer himself!

Cowboys and Demons, ya gotta love it. I'm hoping to use this setting with the youth group at my church soon. A great addition to a great game.
