Can Boot Hill add anything to a game using the d20 system or other RPG?

My knee-jerk response would be "no" because there isn't really any background to go with Boot Hill. The game is mostly a miniatures rules set, so the whole pamphlet is just a bunch of rules. On the other hand, the "first shot" chart is great for gunfights and (thanks to Han Solo) I've used those rules in my scifi campaigns as well. In that light you may find some good stuff in Boot Hill, but it won't be historical background stuff IMO.

Here's a pic of the contents page from the Boot Hill boxed set. The appendices provide some western flavor. I would say that the original BH boxed set could definitely provide some flavor for a d20 past game. Of course that type of flavor could also be gotten from any of a number of non RPG resources.
