DUST DEVILS is a role-playing game set in the dust-ridden Old West. Players portray gunslingers, gamblers, cowboys and outlaws who survive in a rugged land, and conquer their own Devils, the dark secrets that keep them from being honest decent folk.
Dust Devils asks, "Can a no-good son of a bitch make right with his ugly, evil past and be a man the God-fearin’ people of the West respect and admire? Or, will the Devil get the best of him, and everyone discovers that he’s a cheat, a liar or a no-good killer?
Or, as we might say nowadays, "Can a person reform his dark past and become a hero, or will that past haunt his actions until death?"
Or, perhaps simpler, "What does it take to be a hero in a lawless place where it’s hard to just stay alive?"
Or, simplest of all, "Can a person change?"
