Welcome to Sagas of the Wild West!
It is 1875, ten years after the end of the American Civil War, and people are moving west. Everyone has their reasons for making the perilous journey and settling on the frontier. Some are running from their past, some look to strike it rich, some are looking for adventure, others simply want the opportunity to settle new lands and make a new life for themselves.
Why are you heading west? Who are you running to or from? What is hidden in your past?
The primary setting for the RPG universe is a fictional version of the town of Kalispell in the Territory of Montana. Please click on Wiki in the main menu to browse information specific to the RPG such as timeline alterations, character types, town information, etc.
Sagas of the Wild West was inspired by the classic TV and movie westerns of the 1950s thru 1970s. You may create a totally original character, or you may adapt a favorite character from a television series or movie to fit Sagas' premise and setting.

Current Episode: The Legacy
*Note: I changed the title from The Legend of Ishmael's Cross to The Legacy because we might not work in the story of the actual legend of Ishmael's gold find in this episode.
- Monday, July 12, 1875
There were no other responses to my open scene (For Whom the Rooster Crows). Therefore, we are moving on. To the best of my knowledge, we only have one more scene planned set for this day (H.G. and Quentin ride into Kalispell).
Next Story Events
- Day: Tuesday, July 12, 1875
- Hearing (Stormwolfe, Clint)
- Optional Solo posts (Dal, Josephine) for observations and thoughts about the hearing.
- Trial aftermath at St. Regis Hotel and a new threat.
Clint and Stormwolfe will write out the events of the hearing that determines custody of the children and other rulings regarding Chance's and Regina's wills. After the scene is published, Dal and Josephine may writer their observations as solo scenes within 72 hours. I will announcement a have done by date once the trial scene is written and released.
After the hearing, everyone adjourns to the Belle-St. Regis Hotel where Harriet has secured rooms for the night since no one was sure how long the hearing would last. Those that wish to participate in the aftermath scene can join into an open JP that takes place in the hotel's restaurant. During this scene, a Steelgrave or two will stop by their table.
This will likely end this episode.
We are tentatively planning on The Bear as our next episode. Be thinking of events you'd like to see happen for your characters during this episode.
