Preview

Where the Trail Ends tells the story of 4 gunslingers and their path to the ultimate showdown. Over the course of many years they meet again and again, building up hatred and grudge until the day the score is settled.

The end is unavoidable: Some will die, others will kill. But who and how is decided by the players and the choices they make.

The scenario is a tribute to spaghetti-westerns, with long, meaningful silences, barren prairie landscapes, bottled-up feelings, intense shoot-outs, and the smell of dust and gunpowder under the hot sun.

You do NOT need to be an expert in spaghetti-westerns, as long as you enjoy immersing yourself in the atmosphere and bringing your inner images to life. Genre and mood are supported by simple game mechanics.

The road to the showdown is told through flashbacks, in a combination of roleplaying scenes and storytelling. Secrets and betrayal take place between the characters only – the players work together to create the story.
