Default (DF) Western Adventures

I love Christopher R. Rice's Pyramid article "Eastern Adventures", which takes DF games to Eastern inspired lands, as "Oriental Adventures" once did for AD&D. This really should be a full DF supplement!

I'd like to see a supplement that does the same thing for Europe. Yes, DF at default generally feels more "Western" than "Eastern", but a lot of it's tropes tend more to generic fantasy rather than having a distinctly Western feel.

How would you modify DF for games set in the mysterious West?

I would think that the GURPS Fantasy would be the goto for something like that. Maybe also the Third Edition books Russia, Greece, Vikings, Middle Ages 1, Celtic Myth, and Imperial Rome.

You mean, like in The New World? The Americas?

Yeah, I'm having trouble envisioning what this might mean. Most "generic" fantasy tropes are pretty emphatically western.

It might be clearer to call it "occidental", which would be covered by GURPS Middle Ages 1; at first glance, I thought "western" meant GURPS Old West.

My thought would be to play up feudal relationships and the (mounted) knight in shining armor. A lot of Dungeon Fantasy plays around in a world that's rather more urban and modern that the Medieval period.

I was going to also suggest the Deadlands series, but those are all out of print.
