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
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 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?
Last Man Standing was awesome. Mafia + Western = A Truly Surprising Delight
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. ^^

Thanks for the Star Frontiers link.
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?!
never! (i did read the book though. which i might wind up doing with that movie too, if i ever find the book.)
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.
