Summary:

Introduced to the game system and created our survivors. We created the famous “Ferocious Five… and Newt”. This is a time of horseback riding, frontiers, Indian Attacks, and rugged country with rugged men. As such, the terms used and songs sung are set to reflect the period – minus the racial slurs…

The gang all has a WONDER HORSE except for Calvin’s PC, who has a sidekick Chinaman called “Newt” who is fluent in English. He is a tracker and able bodied fellow. Our group is Federal Marshals that are called in by the government when the locals can’t handle issues. Such as Indian uprisings. We were called from our ranches all across the states – Nevada, Oklahoma, Arizona, Texas, Kentucky. Our objective, investigate the Town of Mercer, AZ, and find out if there is anything about these kidnappings and attacks by mystical Indians.

Arriving in what Tuscon Arizona, we traveled by horse 30 miles to Mercer and found it to be a quaint town. Population approx 100. Nothing like a good ole’ frontier town, with the dusty dirt streets, the wandering tumble weed, and all the buildings being boarded up… Wait, what? Looked like a Ghost Town. Not a soul to be seen or heard. The telegraph post was abandoned. Next the sheriff’s office. Boarded up, but we found Deputy Hayes sleeping at the desk. He filled us in that most of the folk up and left, but he was here cause of seven who refused to leave. The banker, two hostel owners, the general store owner, the saloon owner and his daughter. And then the mysterious Bonnie who was a local tracker and trapper, but she lived out in her own house in the wild.

From Deputy Hayes we learned that a fella going by the name “The Phantom” was giving an ultimatum to the folk here to leave or be slaughtered by the Indians at midnight. The messengers would be in town at high noon to see if the folk would comply or die. Seeing as this was an opportune time, we added some tables to the hostel balcony and had Deputy Hayes meet these men. Hayes met the three strangers and told them they weren’t leaving. When the leader slapped him, Lonestar shot the hat off his head as a warning. Billie and Archie did the same to the other two henchmen. Then we gave them an ultimatum, drop yer weapons, and surrender. We placed them under arrest with multiple charges, then Archie and Billie shook em down for answers. We learned the henchmen didn’t know nothing about their employer, but knew the Indians were dead but animated somehow, and that they used Aztec style weapons.

We finished sizing up the town, chose the brick ihostel for our base. Lonestar remained at the Jail to watch the jail birds. We convinced the Hostel owners to leave town with Deputy Hayes. Brigitte scouted out the local area and got ambushed by Dead looking but yet still walking Indians! Silver, the wonder horse alerted Lonestar to gunfire. He called out and then leapt into the saddle and went to investigate. Wade the wonder horse alerted Billie, and the nameless wonder horse alerted Ella. Newt took over guard duty.

Brigitte had her hands full trying to take down the dead that weren’t dead. The rest arrived and assisted in taking them down…
