Setting

    This is a compendium, not a continuity!
    There is no strict setting.

    The Western genre is defined as "various arts which tell stories set primarily in the latter half of the 19th century in the American Old West, often centering on the life of a nomadic cowboy or gunfighter armed with a revolver and a rifle who rides a horse." But as we writers know, anything is possible, and the magnificent aura of the "Old West" can be carried on into just about any setting.
