Title: [The Coyote Lode] I need Western Phrases
Post by: Troy_Costisick on May 28, 2012, 04:45:45 AM

Before the end of the Forge, I would like to get some last minute brainstorming in.  I'm using Western phrases as inspiration for feats and abilities in The Coyote Lode.  For reference, here are my previous posts on Race (, Factions (, and Monsters ( 

Here are some examples of what I'm looking for:

-Cold-cock- If in hand-to-hand fighting, this character knocks down a target within armís reach.

-Diversion- Distracts any number of targets from noticing anything but the character using this

-Dust in Your Eyes- The target loses one die for the rest of combat.

-Fanning the Hammer- The character fires all the bullets left in his gun this round. Roll a
separate attack for each bullet but using only 2 dice instead of 3.

-Hit Me Instead- The next time another player-character of your choice would be hit by a
successful attack, that attack hits your character instead.

-Iím aí Calliní You Out!- The target becomes cornered and canít escape unless this character is
killed or allows the target to go.

If you're a fan of Westerns and have any catch-phrases, no matter how corney they may be, I'd love to hear them along with any suggestions for abilities they might inspire.  Thanks a lot! :)
