About this project
The Sixth Gun comic series—a pop interpretation of the supernatural Western by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt—follows the journey of six ancient and mystical weapons with the power to remake all of Creation.
Now Pinnacle Entertainment Group, creators of Deadlands, brings the world of The Sixth Gun to your Savage Worlds tabletop roleplaying game!
During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time, the Sixth Gun, the most dangerous of the weapons, vanished.
The First of the Six strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads Perdition's flames. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. And the Sixth is the key to rewriting the world.
Both Deadlands and The Sixth Gun fans will find a passel of fantastic new characters, creatures, artifacts, locales, and story ideas for their game in this new take on the Weird West, and all the material in one is completely compatible with the other! Imagine the perils of a Hangin' Judge armed with the Fourth Gun, or a Thunderbird rampage straight out of Hell's Half Acre! Pit your posse against General and Missy Hume, or see how the Six Guns match up against the hundreds of critters from books like Grim Prairie Trails.
What Am I Backing?
The Sixth Gun RPG
Are you ready to saddle up and ride into the savage world of The Sixth Gun? The Sixth Gun RPG is based on The Sixth Gun, the critically acclaimed Eisner and Harvey Award nominated series by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt, published by Oni Press.
Discover the secret of The Six—mystical weapons forged by hatred, and oiled in betrayal—in The Sixth Gun roleplaying game. Inside you'll find details on Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt's incredible world, new Edges and Hindrances, guns and gear, Setting Rules, rules for sorcery and voodoo, an Adventure Generator, and a host of nefarious rogues, gadflies, and scoundrels, for one of the wildest Westerns in all of comics!
This book requires the Savage Worlds core rules to play.
“The Sixth Gun is so fun it feels like it was discovered, not created.” - Kelly Sue DeConnick, Bitch Planet, Captain Marvel
The Sixth Gun: The Winding Way Adventure + Game Master Screen
The Winding Way is an epic adventure presented in Six (!) installments. Our gunslingers, houngans, and other heroes will get a taste of all the world of The Sixth Gun has to offer, including encounters with strange beasts and unusual characters, experience with the legendary guns themselves, and even a not-so-leisurely stroll through the spirit realm. Eventually they will be faced with choices that could reshape the West itself, maybe even the entire world.
For the curious, The Winding Way is effectively a prequel to the events presented in the main comic book series.
The Sixth Gun RPG Game Master screen is a tri-fold, landscape screen featuring gorgeous full-color artwork on one side and all the important charts and tables for the game on the other.
"More mystery and wonder and adventure in the first six pages than some comics have in their whole lives. Say hello to your new favorite comic." - Matt Fraction, Hawkeye, Sex Criminals
You GOTTA Watch This Video!
"A rollicking supernatural adventure filled with twists and turns, I couldn't put it down. This is not your father's Wild West." - Cliff Bleszinski, CEO, Boss Key Productions
"The Sixth Gun is totally unique, beautiful to look at, and an all-around terrific read.” - Rick Remender, Low, Deadly Class, Fear Agent
The Creative Team at Oni Press
Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt first worked together on The Damned from Oni Press. They followed this series with The Sixth Gun, the Eisner and Harvey nominated epic fantasy set in the Old West. Brian has also illustrated Queen & Country (Oni Press) and Hard Time (DC). Cullen has also written Hellbreak, Helheim, and Terrible Lizard (Oni Press); Magneto (Marvel); and Sinestro (DC). Cullen has played roleplaying games since he was a kid. A kid at heart, Brian has recently picked up the gaming habit.
Here's what people usually ask about first—the level that includes "one of everything." That would be the True Fan of the Weird West (or the most elite experience, the epic True Fan of The Sixth Gun scheduled for Thursday, July 31st beginning at 5pm at Gen Con in Indianapolis), and it's everything at a discount over adding everything on to a base level separately. Heck, we even throw in a Deadlands Marshal's Handbook and Player's Guide to round out the Weird in your West. PLUS you get the first two volumes of the deluxe, oversized, and limited "Gunslinger" editions, collecting issues 1-11 and 12-24 of the ongoing series, jam-packed with tons of bonus material!
If you already have The Sixth Gun complete set and just need the RPG line, plus all the miniatures, dice, and Bennies, you want one of the Sword of Abraham rewards.
Just want digital copies? The Gunslinger reward level is what you want. There are other levels between Preacher and True Fan of The Sixth Gun, but we think that gives you the basic gist of it—see the reward descriptions to the right for all the details.
To see the shipping costs for your country, select the reward level, and after pledging check to see the additional shipping cost. Also note that you can "add-on" amounts to your pledge for Add-on items during the Kickstarter, but it is only after the Kickstarter when extra shipping (if needed) is evaluated. If you have any questions about shipping, contact Jodi Black at PEGJodi@gmail.com.
Post the link to this Kickstarter on the social media of your choice. Then tag us (Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus), or send a link or screenshot of the post to PEGJodi@gmail.com. Jodi will email you a link to the PDF copy of the FIRST ISSUE of The Sixth Gun comic series! Better yet, back at the Preacher level and then spread the word. Thanks, amigos y amigas!

Our friends at Bronze Age Miniatures have created eight exclusive miniatures representing some of the most popular archetypes from The Sixth Gun RPG. The set contains one each of Becky Montcrief, Drake Sinclair, Brother Roberto, Billjohn O'Henry, Missy Hume, Asher Cobb, and General Oliander Bedford Hume!
Miniatures are at 32mm scale and cast in pewter.
Backers with physical orders may add additional items to their shipment at the costs listed below. Your credit will apply when we send out the final surveys.
DIGITAL BACKERS who decide to add physical Add Ons after the Kickstarter will not be able to take advantage of the reduced shipping costs offered during the Kickstarter.
