Felicity Part II: The Townsfolk of Felicity

Here’s the second post on the town of Felicity, my spaghetti western influenced setting for In the Light of the Setting Sun, the wild west indie RPG from Jon Davis. This has a list of notable townsfolk.

I’ve listed stats for all the major characters, occasional quotes by and about each person that can be used in game,  and any possible connections to the pregen characters I’ll be posting soon.

All of the photos, and some of the quotes came from the movie site Once Upon a Time in a Western.

Much of the jargon comes from the Writer’s Guide to the Old West.
