Flying Lead : Smoke and Brass
Welcome to the West..
Will you make it in the wilds?
Flying Lead: Smoke & Brass is a reboot of Flying Lead, one of the longest running games under the FilmSim and Gunman Airsoft banner. However, unlike its predecessor, Smoke & Brass uses cap and blank-firing firearms ONLY and is not an Airsoft system.
Basic Information and Concept
Flying Lead: Smoke & Brass is a Film-Sim game based in the wild west of America in the 1880s. We’re taking for our inspiration classic Westerns like The Magnificent Seven, A Fistful of Dollars, and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, and more modern interpretations of the genre like Maverick, Deadwood, Godless and Westworld and games such as the Red Dead Redemption series.
As always with EyeLarp’s FilmSim games, we are encouraging high production values and will be striving for a cinematic feel and look to everything we do. The main rule is: react to everything and don’t expect a specific reaction.
It is the start of a new year and a new decade; 1880. Civilisation rolls in from California and Nevada in the West and Texas and Colorado in the East; the Wild West is becoming smaller and smaller by the day. Outlaws and law-keepers alike move further and further inland in pursuit of their own piece of the American dream.
On the frontier of the state of New Austin is the recently founded but thriving town of Goodwill, which services a multitude of homesteads, ranches and hamlets that litter the surrounding area of the great Juno valley.
Your character calls one of these settlements home: the hamlet of Sweetwater. Your motives for coming there are your own – are you trying to out-run civilization, make a better life for yourself or just want to make a mark on the world?
We have chosen the setting and the use of a fictional state – New Austin – to allow us to be creative to the stories and not so closely tied to historical accuracy.
