Reviews - What do customers think about Sidewinder: Recoiled (d20 3.5 Western Roleplaying, Mythic Vistas)?
Bringing the Western to the RPG Aug 15, 2007
I was pretty impressed with this book. I have a large number of gaming modules and this one stands out in my opinion by being well written and well organized. It has possibly the best Index and Table of Contents I have seen in awhile. That might seen an odd observation, but you have looked more then one rule book, you know how rare and yet how useful those are.
Sidewinder: Recoiled builds on to the Open Game License (OGL) D20 system rules a well thought out approach to bringing Western movie genre into the RPG world. There have been other approaches, but this one sticks to a non-magical west. Dog House Rules has provided a lot of material in the book and in supplements to run a more historical western game. But, they excel at giving you the tools and options to give your campaign the Hollywood/spaghetti/pulp feel.
Whether you want the good ol' westerns like Shane, Stage Coach, The War Wagon, or True Grit ~ or if you want the grittier more mythic feel of Sergio Leone ~ or even David Samuel "Sam" Peckinpah ~ the tools are here.
There are lots of historical information and even more on their website, [...] - they also have a range of additional material available through download PDF's including Fort Griffin. A resource for a frontier town with maps, buildings, and Non Player Characters.
A great resource for anyone wanting to run a Western Themed campaign.

While it still relies the d20 moderns corebook for a few things, the game comes into its own onces your base hero (fast,tough, smart, whatever) can qualifiy for the advanced classes given. I would rather they had made the product stand alone, but as the d20 core book is only needed for the first 3 character levels and some basic rules this isn't a bad system. They also provide periodic updates and modules from their website.
If you are considering running a western's campaign and already have the d20 moderns book, I recommmend this game most highly.
