“and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.” -Rev 6:1
The post came with the final words of Davis le Mesagier, written in a shaky hand and written quickly.
“Death follows closely after. We’re holing up for the night near the mines, hoping we can lose them in the confusion. Mortimer Starkey and his gang have been hunting us for a week now and Jim and I are the only ones left.
I thought I knew what evil was. I was wrong. We looked the Devil in the eye and blinked.
And he saw us for what we were.
I’m giving this to Miss Jean Ireland. If I do not return to her, she will send this along to you, my family.
I’m sorry. We tried to do good out here, but Judas Crossing is not a place for good men.
Written in beautiful handwriting, Miss Jean Ireland informs you that Davis’ body was interred at Judas Crossing and gives the number of his grave. His belongings have been given into her care, to give to a family member.
Davis likely wouldn’t have wanted you to come after him, but family will be avenged.
Note: This game will contain elements that seem supernatural.
They are not.
Consider this more like an indie-film western. There may be visions or those who symbolically seem like they are something else, but nothing in here is anything but what exists in our world.
I’m borrowing Aces & Eights Judas Crossing setting because it’s cool and has a lot of depth.
There will be opportunities for the players to let me know which factions in the town interest them. By playing cards on those factions, you’ll bring them into the game to be more important. This will help shape the story into something unique to these players.
