    Holy crap this sounds fun. I've been on a western movie binge lately and was considering writing a western setting for GURPS. This is sexy indeed. Many thanks for bringing this to my attention MortonStromgal

    Yeah, I have Sidewinder and Sidewinder: Recoiled and they rock. Sidewinder: Recoiled is better because it's based off d20 Modern rules.

    i'm going to get seriously samurai on the first person who suggests that the magnificent seven is an awesome cowboy movie without giving credit to the original story it was ripped off of, "the seven samurai". (the new anime samurai7 wasn't bad either.) =D

    that having been said, i love samurai flicks, and westerns are only a weapon, clothes, accent and scenery change away. ^^

    I loved the Zatoichi the blind swordsman movies. I must have seen at least 20 of those. Good stuff.
    The whole Tokugawa era seems to capture the imagination in a special way. Did you ever play the Nobunga's Ambition video games? Great games.

    I always wanted to but never got around to it *shakes his fist at Squaresoft and Square/Enix*. Wasn't it a strategy game like Axis and Allies with a rich story?

    Yojimbo was a good movie. I think several movies were made from that, most recent one I can remember was Last Man Standing. The one about the Seven Samurai was the basis for the Magnificent Seven.

    actually, never watched that one. isn't a "real" samurai movie. tom cruise ruined it. ;D

    actually, that has nothing to do with why i didn't watch it. i'm one of those rare odd people who does not watch anything rated worse than pg-13. makes it a bit easier to pick movies come date night. ^^

    however, i've watched most of kurosawa akira's and mifune toshiro's movies. some great samurai flicks there. i love yojimbo and sakuranbo. among others.

    zatoichi was awesome also. when i lived in japan i met this buddhist priest who was the spitting image of zatoichi, and even sounded like him too! except he wasn't blind. he was flattered by the comparison (honestly, he looked like zatoichi reincarnated!) so he took me out to his ferrari and pulled out his golf bag of weapons (he had another golf bag of clubs...) and gave me two bokktou (wooden practice sords) with his mark on the hilt. i still have those. ^^

    oh, and back to starfrontiers for a bit: check out the new sister site! StarFrontiers 2

    The Last Samurai was too a real samurai flick. Tom cruise ruins everything but the setting was quite accurate. Have you at least seen Shogun?!

    There is a nearby alternative universe where Ken Watanabe is the lead actor of "The Last Samurai" and it is an amazing poignant movie -- the Japanese equivalent of "Gone with the Wind". In our world, it was a mediocre disheveled blockbuster with a few memorable scenes.

    How about no favorite. I've barely dabbled in this system. I will say that it has some interesting ideas I do like, the wealth system being my favorite. It will likely get "borrowed" for every non-fantasy game I run.

    I'm not too keen on the rampant and expected multi-classing, but that could be the old DM in me sticking its head up.
