A slice of life set in the Old West. Pre-gen characters.
November 1865.
The community of Allen's Ranch, CA has been shaken. Joseph Hill, a ranch hand, is accused of being a fugitive wanted in Nevada. He pleads innocence but is scheduled to be handed off to the U.S. Marshals and the circuit court. People from the community are traveling with Joseph to a nearby ghost town to witness the hand-off.
The ghost town was chosen for the hand-off as a half-way point between the ranch and the regular path of the circuit court. The town is mostly intact but the people were wiped out three years prior by natives. Even though the cavalry wiped out the tribe they determined was responsible and make regular patrols of the area, no one has bothered resettling the town.
This is a story and character-driven adventure. There are several pre-generated characters to chose from representing men and women 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.
