Idea for rulebook images

You know how I mentioned that I wanted to put more images in the rulebook to spice it up and break up the big walls of text? Well originally I had planned on using old, real-world photographs from the west thanks to the digitized Library of Congress archives. I would try to use the photo “as is”, but since I’d want some consistency I’d more likely end up applying Gimp’s “Old Photo filter”. Doing so would result in something like this:

However I was thinking more about this, and heck why not use photos from my playtests, or from actual photoshoots I could do (with a tripod and proper lighting). The result would be similar to this photo (which was actually from another project of mine):

Definitely worth considering, since with some tweaking I think I could get a really nice effect going on.
