Corral Countdown 10: Trappings

Just what are “trappings?” Many RPGs have them, although by a different name - Relics, Accessories, Trinkets. They are equippable items that give a character some kind of benefit.

 



“Trappings” was the most Wild West-y word for this kind of thing. A Trapping can be an article of dress or equipment - such as spurs, handkerchiefs, moccasins, suspenders. Trappings are typically something worn but can be just any object that a Westerner might carry on them.

Here are some examples:



 

Spurs - Gain back 100% of your health when it falls below 25% once.

Barrel - If no stance is active the barrel will absorb five physical attacks, then explode.

 

Slim Jim - Holster that makes small gun vantages cost 1 less power

 

Essence Bottle - Weapons imbued with status ailments are twice as effective

 

Dime Novel - Gain twice as much VP to learn new skills

 

Bear Trap - Enemies start battles paralyzed

 

Lace Fan - Prevents all status ailments

 

 

 

There are about 40 Trappings total in Boot Hill Bounties that can be bought, found, or possibly rewarded to the player. Along with Weapons, Hats, and Armor, Trappings are one of the four pieces of equipment that can be equipped.

Tomorrow we'll have one last look at a hat for Kid.

4/5 – RPGamer

“Co-op works even better in combat... It's perfectly orchestrated chaos, and it's easily the high point of the game”
5/5 – Co-optimus

“With its quirky, distinctive style, Boot Hill Heroes is shaping up to be everything it claimed to be and more. It’s undeniable that, as a tribute to EarthBound and other SNES-era classics, this game really shines.”

About This Game

Boot Hill Heroes is the first episode in a game series that fuses elements of spaghetti western film - gunslinging outlaws, brave lawmen, and the untamed wilderness - with classic RPG storyline and gameplay. 90s console RPGs like Final Fantasy, Earthbound and Chrono Trigger created lasting memories and impacted us as gamers. Now, Boot Hill Heroes brings back those experiences while revitalizing the genre with a Wild West spin and innovative new gameplay elements.
It's an experimental combination of old and new ideas intended to bring a new and unique experience to modern gamers and old-school fans alike. It's an epic Wild West adventure packed with excitement, intrigue and a dose of humor.
