In the beginning there were four men, a woman, and a game table. The five sat down to play a game.
The woman bet her body. She would soon become Lady Luck, the spirit of fortune
The first man bet his eyes. He would soon become Snake-Eyes, the king of misfortune.
The second man bet his heart. He would soon become Roulette, the spinner of the wheel.
The third man bet his soul. He would soon become 777, the vessel of the beast.
The fourth man bet the table, as it was his. He was the Dealer.
The world is a dangerous and unforgiving place. Bandits roam the sand seas that cover most of the world and wild creatures thrive underground in the domain of 777 and in the woods and jungles. Water is scarce, mostly found in underground wells, cacti, or the occasional rain. Settlements dot the landscape, some organized into small states to protect themselves from the monsters out in the world. Tribes live on the edges of forests, practicing their magic rituals. Out in the wastes, a gun is what'll keep you alive. Lady Luck may favor some, but other may fall to Snake-Eye's misfortune.
In Lucky Bastards we'll be playing a ragtag band of gunslingers, brawlers, preachers, shamans, bandits, gadgeteers, and many more. I... I'm not exactly sure what the story will be, but I'm sure we can figure something out. Basically it's a sort of western styled world with some magic and steampunk technology. Gambling is very important to the residents of this world considering the world was created as the result of a gambling game between the gods. I want to elaborate on this mythology as we go on, expanding on this origin story and maybe even adding more gods to this pantheon. There are also 54 magical artifacts known as the Cards that are spread around the world, some have owners and some are waiting to be found still.
So yeah, sort of WIP idea. Anyone interested and/or have ideas? Also title pending. First one to come to mind, but I like it!
