Savage Saturday Night!
A slice of life story set in the old west.
Pre-gen characters available.

November 1865.

In the developing community of Allen's Ranch, California, a local ranch hand, Joseph Hill, has been accused of being a wanted criminal. Joseph pleads his innocence but has agreed to be taken in. The story begins in an abandoned settlement near the ranch of Fred Allen where Joseph Hill is set to be handed over to the U.S. Marshal and the local Circuit Judge. Many members of the Allen’s Ranch community have traveled to the nearby ghost town to witness the hand-off. How will his friends and colleagues deal with handing over one of their own to stand trial? How will the man being sent to face a death sentence spend his final hours with them? How many others have skeletons in their closet?

This is a story and character-driven adventure. There are several pre-generated characters to chose from representing people from the community around Allen's Ranch and people traveling with the circuit court. The characters are drawn from archetypes of the American west both historical and fictional. Though there are some difficult historical truths worked into the narrative, do not expect a strict adherence to history or game mechanics.
