Is there a .png map without any of the keyed icons on it?  That would be really helpful to give players, so as to reveal what are on those hexes as the characters explore.


I'll ask the same question of this title, that I asked about Broken System, is there any chance of purchasing a print copy? This looks very interesting to me, enough to buy a print copy, but pdf's really don't work for me.

You can get it alongside a number of other creations also using Violence here.

You also get a sticker.


Thank you for responding. I was really only interested in the Texas stuff, so I bought the pdf, which I rarely do. It's very well worth it and easily used with any system, Western or Post-Apocalyptic without too much tweaking (We play Boot Hill). Despite the file size, there's a lot of meat there, a good story or three and a lot of points for inspiration. Thanks again.
