THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE GLORY is a wild west expansion for the PARAGON system from the AGON roleplaying gameA copy of AGON is required for play. For more on the PARAGON system visit AGON-RPG.com.


Well, he's dead. You killed him, you drunk bastard. In front of his wife and boy, too. You're gonna give us that gun now, Tom. You're gonna give it to us, or we're gonna take it from you. One way or the other—you ain't leaving this town. 

You’re a gunfighter. For money or justice, it don’t make no difference—fame and Glory mean just as much, maybe more. If you can’t find none at this town, you’ll try again at the next. Heck, you’ll ride clear across the frontier if you have to…


…lucky you ain’t got to ride alone. 



A new take on old west storytelling. 

THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE GLORY is a tabletop roleplaying game for 2-5 players and 1 dealer about a posse of gunfighters roaming the wild, western frontier. Whether as peace officers, outlaws or vigilantes—good, bad, or otherwise—heck, that's up to you! Play to find out as y'all travel from one town to the next, in search of gold and glory. Let them Stars be your guide and know that when it's time to Hang Up Your Spurs or Get Put in the Ground, history will judge you according to your Sins & Virtues.

Didn't I say this here's also a card game? Shoot. Whenever you folks get into Trouble and there's gold & glory to be won, y'all gotta beat the Dealer at a hand of Down-the-River-Glory. The Dealer sets the Stakes and the players wager in Glory to be the Ace-high (best). Over the course of your travels, them gunfighters accumulate as much Glory as they can, enhancing their Name and Reputations, while the posse accrues Gold & Stars—and a Bounty on their heads, if they ain't too careful.


Touchstones: AGON (TTRPG), Deadwood (TV series), Red Dead Redemption (video game series), The Man with No Name Trilogy (films), Dogs in the Vineyard (TTRPG), Blades in the Dark (TTRPG) and many more...





Itchfunding's an alternative to your typical crowdfunding methods, that's more flexible and measured. It allows creators on the itch.io platform to release early-access versions of their games, and make constructions or improvements as funding goals are met. Unlike Kickstarter, there ain't no termination for the campaign or risk that the funding will fail. As soon as you purchase THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE GLORY and claim your reward, you'll secure a copy of the latest playable version of the game! 

Better yet, you ain't just funding the final digital ashcan—you is funding the development and progress of  THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE GLORY game itself. When a funding goal is met, them files will be updated with the latest and greatest, including any additional contents, available for download at your leisure. The first goal is to recoup the costs (dollars and blood, sweat 'n' tears) that's already gone into the development and release of this early-access version. 


In the event that funding surpasses these levels, there's plans for further developments, which include: a Bloody River Trail supplement with additional towns, a print edition of some kind, gunfighter playing cards and custom glory (poker) chips to boot!


Early-access Ashcan

  • Rules for The Reckoning and possible eventuations,
  • Rye, West Georgette: The first town of the Bloody River Trail—with 3 Wars & 1 Score for starters!
  •  Some guidance for running the game (see House Rules below), and even
  • Rules for riding into the sunset.

You'll also get a Gunfighter Character Keeper & Play Aid (Google Sheets) as well as a PlayingCards.io Game Room (setup file) & Guide to get you playing online with your compadres, quicker than you can say Yeehaw!

*Once this milestone is reached, an additional 10 community copies will be made available.


Copperton, KA

☞ $1,000 ☜

When funds reach so high, the town of Copperton, Katadena will be added to the ashcan for your posse's visitation! Situated on the Bloody River Trail, this mining town is rife with Troubles just waiting for y'all to take advantage.

*Once this milestone is reached, an additional 20 community copies will be made available.


Aubergine, WG

☞ $1,250 ☜

When funded to here, a third town on the Bloody River Trail will be included in the ashcan—Aubergine, West Georgette. This growing frontier town will be the wildest yet! Aubergine's the last town planned for the final version of this here release. 

*Once this milestone is reached, additional community copies will be made available.


County Map

☞ $1,500 ☜

Over halfway! When funds reach this truck, a map of the counties near the Katadena—West Georgette border will be included in the Dealer's Chronicle. It will likely be included in the ashcan as well, layout permitting.

*Once this milestone is reached, additional community copies will be made available.


House Rules

☞ $2,000 ☜

  • Tips & tricks for dealing, handling betting & final say-so's during contests,
  • How to rotate dealers,

Professional Editor

☞ $2,500 ☜

*Once this milestone is reached, additional community copies will be made available.


Sensitivity Consultant

☞ $3,500 ☜

This train is near ours! This here goal is one of particular importance: hiring a sensitivity consultant to help make certain that THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE GLORY is helping to improve our connections to peoples past and present, and not achieving the opposite of this intent. To this glorious end, I consider consultations with persons appropriately qualified to provide indigenous American perspectives and historical context, to be essential.

*Once this milestone is reached, additional community copies will be made available.


Accessibility Consultant

☞ $5,000 ☜

If we take the whole doggone train, it's only fair and proper that  THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE GLORY be in a state in which it can be accessible to most everyone. To do so respectably would require employing someone with adequate expertise. These funds would make this happen.

With all o' that behind it,  THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE GLORY ashcan edition would be complete and something in which we could all enjoy and take great satisfaction. Thank you very kindly for all o' your support on this journey!

*Once this milestone is reached, additional community copies will be made available.
