I've long said that the world of The Sixth Gun would make a great setting for a role-playing game. If you agree with me, then you should get your dice ready. Pinnacle Entertainment Group (who are responsible for Savage Worlds and Deadlands among many other great games) has announced the upcoming release of a Savage Worlds source book based on the comic book! The release date hasn't been announced yet, but stay tuned for more information as it becomes available. From the press release: The Sixth Gun series comes to RPGs! The First of the Six strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads Perdition’s flames. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. And the Sixth is the key to rewriting the world. Are you ready to saddle up and ride into the savage world of The Sixth Gun? Based on the Eisner and Harvey Award nominated comic series from Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, and OniPress. Watch for more details to come, as well as more accessories, including custom miniatures of the characters from the comics!

A few years back, Multiversity Comics ran a column coinciding with the release of each new issue of THE SIXTH GUN. With the series entering its penultimate arc and a new spin-off, THE SIXTH GUN: DAYS OF THE DEAD, starting next month, now seemed like the perfect time for Multiversity to revive the column.
