Welcome to Sagas of the Wild West!


Sagas of the Wild West was inspired by a love of the classic television family western series such as The Big Valley, Laramie, Have Gun - Will Travel, and Bonanza, as well as many others. It is preferred that the characters are representative of these iconic heroes and heroines, created to fit the roleplaying story's timelines and themes.

The Setting

The stories start in 1875, ten years after the end of the Civil War. The primary location is the fictional town of Coldwater Junction, Montana and Coldwater Creek Ranch, although some stories will take place in other areas of the United States and, possibly, other countries.

We will adhere to a cinematic version of the Old West. Major historical events and people will not be altered. Information and images have been provided with brief details on our fictional town of Coldwater Junction. You will still need to do some research for your characters and posts.
