It's insane, I shouldn't be thinking about variants/supplements until I at least own the damn game, but . . .  this notion is riding me like a devil, so I thought I'd post a note about it.  Instead of Josey Wales and Unforgiven, imagine variations on The Searchers and Dances with Wolves as the exemplar movies.   The devils get focused into racial/frontier/civilzation vs. "barbarism" issues.

Sound interesting?  Anything in Dust Devils as it stands now that touches on this?

Gordon, you're on the right warpath. I actually am considering doing some Dust Devils treatment of American Indians as a download or article or something. And, the Searchers--which many cite as the best Western film ever--is 2nd on my list of movies to rent for "Western Movie Night" (Sean Wipfli has already supplied my w/ Once Upon a Time in the West, which I haven't seen since I can remember. THANKS Sean!).

I haven't had time yet to consider how the game might apply to the American Indian as characters, but it's definitely worth thought and discussion. If you've got any ideas, fire away!
