Cause calling ourselves the Moneymakers was a little bit on the nose
There are three things about the west one should know. One, be you a gunslinger or card cheat, know that you’re only good at what you do as long as the fellas you’re up against are bad at it. Never put yourself up against someone you know to be better, hoping Lady Luck to be on your side. When folks started coming to the west, they came to a place where she couldn’t be found. Two, know that any ideals or morals you may encounter in a fellow in the west are a farce. The charitable never give coin merely because they wish to help the downtrodden. More often than not, it’s their way of always having bodies to fill a crowd. Be it a mob or an audience, the “good souls” always have a crowd, and the crowd always finds themselves being used. Three, and perhaps this is the most important piece of advice I can give you, if you ever come across a bloke or lady who mentions a group by the name of the Luckmakers, you best make a quick departure. For the fellow you find yourself in conversation with is one of them, and he just gave you a warning. A warning that the establishment you’re frequenting is about to get a visit by this very group, and if you wish to put off your visit to the pearly gates, you best be on your way. For in that place there is someone the Luckmakers are looking for, and once they find them, they’ll do whatever they can to make sure they don’t lose them. Even if it means starting a firefight.
Perhaps this is the point where I must divulge something. My name is Jonas Ellimen, and I run the Luckmakers. I see you took my words to heart, and are now leaving. Tell others of these rules, and tell them that the Luckmakers have arrived, and even if the Lady never comes to these parts, we’re going to be here till our dying days.
