Perfect for Halloween but available all the way to Monday, November 14th, is a Lovecraftian Weird West setting from Stiff Whiskers Press. Weird Frontiers is based on Dungeon Crawl Classics and is a standalone game.
There’s a bit of real-life history to the game, too; it was initially known as Dark Trails before agreeing to change the name to avoid confusion.
In an alternate 1865, Nyarlathotep cultists unleashed the Seven Days of Night to reawaken long-dormant Elder Gods. Now, remarkable heroes face an ever-increasing evil in a wounded society still reeling from the bloodiest conflict in American history.
