I have been very busy due to work related issues, and I do not see it slowing down anytime soon. This means I will be shooting for one post a week. On the plus side of things my group got together this past Sunday and we played some Deadlands.
Last game ended with the guys (Johnny, Richard, and the Reverend Josiah Love) getting off the train in Avarice. Well, the Reverend needed help off since he had been shot up during a train robbery. The group turned over a bandit they had captured and the corpse of one they had killed.
So, in game we picked up several days later after Josiah had a chance to recover. They find out that their friend Professor Annabelle Chambers has been out working outside off town, but she should be back soon. While waiting at the saloon they ask some locals if they know anything about what the Professor has found. About this time, a man rushed in to get a drink before he went to the sheriff. It seems animals had dug up that fella they buried a couple days ago. The group asked him some questions and then decided to go with him and see if they could help. Eventually they ended up at the cemetery investigating the grave and coming to the conclusion that it was not dug up, something came out of it. They decide to follow tracks that lead away from the grave and which eventually get obscured by wagon tracks.
About that time a buckboard wagon approached, heading towards town. It halted and their friend, Ms. Chambers leaned out and asked if they would like a ride into town. They accepted and began their conversation by asking what she had found and why she had been so worried and secretive. Apparently she had misinterpreted some local lore, but it ended up being something harmless. If they want to stay in her guest house, that would be fine, but there is nothing to be concerned about.
And I have to stop right there, I will let you all know how it turned out later on tonight. Take care!!
