Lawmen v Outlaws is a simple Western themed roleplaying game about… erm… lawmen and outlaws. The game uses a variant of the Fudge roleplaying system, designed to be easy to learn and fast in play. New rules including the Minion Machine and Complex Tests will help you create interesting and varied challenges with little or no advance preparation. Adventure seeds for both lawmen and outlaws are also included. These things combined make Lawmen V Outlaw ideally suited for pick-up games.
It is free to download from the following link: Lawmen v Outlaws download

MBAW – the 20th Anniversary Edition
The Mutant Bikers make a spectacular return in this full colour, special 20th Anniversary Edition! Yes, the game really is that old. The rules remain unchanged in this new edition but improvements have been made to the art and layout as fitting for the occasion. Same game, same attitude, same free price!
It’s an anniversary that matters only to me, but today marks two years since I released Bounty Hunters of the Atomic Wastelands.
I’ve not done much with BHAW in this past year as I’ve been occupied with Cyberblues City, however I can share an interesting statistic: the number of downloads of the game in its second year match almost exactly those for the first year. Roughly speaking as BHAW is approaching the 1000 download mark and I can see there about 500 last year and 500 this year; one or two each day, every day over two years.
If BHAW weren’t entirely free, I’d be feeling rather smug.
This consistency does surprise me. I would have expected the game’s downloads would have run out of steam by now, especially as I’m not really out there actively promoting it.
There are two things I can point as having boosted interest in the BHAW. The first, earlier this year, was the Mad Max movie. I posted about that before. I found it quite amusing that the spike in download matched the film release so closely.
The other was getting my games listed on E. Chris Garrison’s The Compendium of Free Role Playing Games (http://sillyhatbooks.com/about/games/). This site has been going since 1994 and has clearly quite a following. So much so that it has quickly supplanted RPGNet as the main source of referrals for BHAW.
I suspect it doesn’t hurt that BHAW as awarded the “Cool Game” icon on The Compendium of Free Role Playing Games, which puts the Bounty Hunters on the same category as Ars Magica, GURPS Lite and the current (basic) edition of D&D!
