Aces & Eights: Shattered Frontier is an Western RPG of unprecedented depth and detail. Gone are the days of the Wild West RPG just being merely about the gunfight, in Aces & Eights you can be anything from a Banker to an Outlaw or a Barber to a Whore. The possibilities are endless, just as they were in the Old West. A man can seek his fortune any way he sees fit (women too for that matter).
The Shattered Frontier in the title refers to the alternate history setting of Aces & Eights. It is not an alternate history in the sense of magic and zombies running around but our own history tweaked in a realistic way. The Civil War took place 10 years early due to various political factors and ended in a stalemate on both sides. The main political factions and nations claiming sovereignty in the world of Aces & Eights are The United States and The Confederacy, The Republic of Texas, Mexico, Deseret (Mormons), and Sequoyah (the five civilized tribes).
