You can probably make use of the army lists in Fortunes Won and Lost.

Thanks, but according to the game's description in the online store, it covers the late 1800's-early 1900's. I wonder if that's a typo because the game is supposed to cover the time of the Age of Imperialism, which according to Wikipedia, started around 1760. If they include British troops and Indians though, I might pick up the game when Nuts comes out.

I'm looking at the PDF. The Army Lists are generic enough to be used for 1760.

Come to think of it, why not use the weapons from Lovecraft's Revenge? I imagine the weapons you need for your game are Bows, Rifle and Pistols - you got them all in LR. Melee is the same in any rules. You may need to change up the Will to Fight Table since Military and Natives may react differently under fire.

Well I was using the weapons from Rum since they're about the time period. I'll probably pick up Fortunes when Nuts comes out and use those combat rules.

After that, I was thinking of using LR rules for either a Victorian era horror game (Jack the Ripper, etc.) or a modern slasher game.

Fortunes Won and Lost covers the one that's been referred to historically for a very long time - pre-Wikepedia.

Ah so it's the New Imperialism. If it has stats for British troops and Indians, it might still work, unless there's another THW game that better covers that time period (1600s to Revolutionary War).

That would be Long Rifle. Another great set of rules.

Thanks. Unfortunately, Long Rifle is no longer in the store.

Any chance to reload the doc? The link is broken.
